The Altadena Sheriff Station Commander Captain Roosevelt Blow (still can’t get over that name, but I guess it beats Joe Blow) will be addressing the community starting at 7p.m. Tuesday night, January 29, at the Altadena Community Center. He’ll be talking about crime rates and other goings on we should know about in the neighborhood…The Altadena Station’s Support Group, Clergy Council, Community Advisory Committee and volunteer program will get some airtime as well. Come visit with your neighbors and hear what’s going on in the streets.

The Scripps Home closed in November as owners prepare to tear it down and replace it with a more modern and spacious home for elderly residents. Today was their plant giveaway and dozens of people and local gardeners showed up to help themselves to Scripps flora. My husband and I did too, just as the day was winding down. You can see from the scars in the land that plenty of greenery was had by all. I’ll chronicle the evolution of the home here.
