Darleene Barrientos With dozens of teenagers wearing a variety of black T-shirts gathered, the band Indefinite Beauty roared to life early Saturday, as did its singer Joe Woo, of La Crescenta.

"Music in the park never sounded like this," Browne said.

Janine Marnien Without knowing what programs are available for the La Canada Flintridge community, it's hard to know what additional services are needed. That's what some local leaders expressed Monday at a community-needs assessment workshop at the Roger Barkley Community Center. Representatives from local organizations identified the coordination and promotion of services as the No. 1 goal. In total, four goals were identified, and committees were formed Monday to address the four areas.

Janine Marnien Many teens in La Canada Flintridge have told the Youth Council what they want, and what they want is more community-service opportunities and out-of-school sports programs. In results released Monday at the City Council meeting, 78% of teens who participated in the voluntary survey wanted to see more community-service and sports programs. Results from about 700 teens were able to be used in the final tabulation, a number that definitely gives the Youth Council something to work with, member Timothy Yiu said.

Urban growth has emerged as the dominant campaign issue in the Nov. 6 election for the Crescenta Valley Town Council, with candidates calling for stronger local oversight of residential and commercial developments. At a forum Thursday at the La Crescenta Library, candidates criticized the size and aesthetics of several recent projects, with one saying he wants Foothill Boulevard in La Crescenta to "look better than La Cañada. " The group of 10 candidates also took aim at a home on Briggs Avenue that is so large that some neighbors said they initially mistook it for a church.

I have been reflecting this past week about the responsibility of leaders, specifically pastors. I have considered the ways that pastors can wound people, not out of callousness, but in conjunction with their busy schedules and heavy responsibilities. These ponderings do not come from anything that is happening in my own life, but rather the fact that I have been on both sides of the fence in the past. I have been deeply wounded by pastors who had pride, and even jealousy. These negative characteristics, coupled with the responsibility God puts upon His shepherds and teachers, led them to a moment where they fell from grace.

OAKWOOD DEVELOPMENT The City Council denied an appeal filed by residents of Oakwood Avenue, allowing the construction of a proposed 6,300-square-foot, two-story home in the neighborhood located south of Foothill Boulevard to move forward. But the council imposed certain conditions on the project that addressed the concerns of neighbors, who objected to the proposed home's nearly 100-foot, second-story depth. WHAT IT MEANS The council requested that applicant Geoffrey Bywater either move the entire home 15 feet toward the street, or remove square footage from the second story to cut its length by 15 feet.
