Former La Cañada High School golfer Collin Morikawa helped the United States defeat Europe, 19 1/2-11 1/2, to reclaim the Arnold Palmer Cup last Sunday at Atlanta Athletic Club in Johns Creek, Ga.
Morikawa contributed a few points to the U.S. squad by winning two of four matches.
“It’s just a big honor,” said Morikawa, who is one of the top collegiate golfers at Cal. “This is the first time Mr. Palmer couldn’t be there with us. It’s such a great honor to represent the country and Mr. Palmer. I feel like I didn’t have my best out there, but it was all about keeping the spirits high and keeping the legacy of Mr. Palmer living and representing the nation as best as we can. We were able to win and make history, and it was great to be a part of that.” Continue reading “LC’s Morikawa Helps U.S. Win Arnold Palmer Cup”
Dave Nydam wants to warn fellow La Cañada Flintridge residents who might also have their front yard encroached upon by upgraded Southern California Edison equipment: It could happen to you.
If it does, a SCE representative said, an impeded view is something of a symbol of improved electrical reliability in the neighborhood, which will be safer for it.
On Thursday, June 8, Nydam was surprised to find a crew at work in his front yard along Hillard Avenue, replacing a pole — 15 inches in diameter — that was planted in the public right-of-way two years ago, with one that measured 18 inches in diameter.

A burglary suspect was arrested early Monday outside of the Wingstop restaurant in the 1900 block of Verdugo Boulevard, authorities said.
According to Crescenta Valley Sheriff Sgt. Alan Chu, a deputy was driving past the location at about 1:55 a.m. when he spotted the suspect — a 19-year-old from Long Beach — peering into the restaurant’s window. When the deputy turned around to investigate the suspect, four other suspects fled on foot. They were wearing hoods and dark clothing that made them difficult to identify, Chu said.
