I just love Rosa Johnson. She’s lived here in Altadena since Moby Dick was a minnow. When she shows up at an event, everybody knows it and pays their respects. Here she is with her daughter at the July 18 concert at Farnsworth Park, loving the surf music. About her hat: Rosa is Italian; her late husband was the Swede. At the Christmas Tree Lane lighting ceremony you’ll see “Santa Rosa” on the famous street, Santa Rosa, handing out candy to the local kids.
