Got the announcement this afternoon that Altadena’s head sheriff is blowin’ town.  Here’s his official email, complete with his signature statement:

The purpose of this email is to advise you that I will be retiring from
the Sheriff’s Department effective March 31, 2010.
You are a great group of folks and it has been an honor and privilege to
have served with you as part of the LASD family.
Thank you for allowing me to share this part of my life with you.


In order to be a Great LEADER, one must first learn how to FOLLOW.

Adopt the VISION, press toward the MARK, and  your path of LEADERSHIP
shall be clear.

More details and I’m sure a helluva party to come.

Driving up Fair Oaks and what do I see while the sky is pouring on us?
