ALTADENA - The normally sedate monthly Town Council meeting turned raucous and emotional Tuesday night as council members struggled to resolve allegations of misconduct during the recent elections.

For about three hours, veteran Town Councilman Steve Lamb was disqualified from returning to his seat for a 17th year when Election Chair Jamie Bissner ruled that Lamb engaged in negative campaigning, violating election rules.

LA CA√ĎADA FLINTRIDGE - Faced with the driest weather in history, Southern California fire chiefs warned Thursday that firefighters and residents need to brace for an especially dangerous fire season.

Fire chiefs from Ventura to San Bernardino counties stressed the need for fire training - and brush clearance.

See you soon Aaron Proctor

Well, I'm just aggregating the news, so you may have already heard, but Aaron Proctor is taking a leave of absence from our community. He says he'll be back soon.

Even though I don't know him well, I will sincerely miss his contribution to local politics. Aaron has the unique ability to do his civic duty with a terrific sense of humor, and local politicians would do well to learn from Aaron's pure heart. Most people could not pull off his unique style and natural sense of humor, but everyone can learn from his integrity and sincerity.

Come back soon, Aaron. We need you in Pasa/Altadena politics. It's too predictable and boring without you!

Altadena Town Council election results

Subject: Re: ATC results?

Jeremiah,

News flash Tim Kelly wins. Actually running unopposed he got 60 votes.
Quite an impressive showing by our Census Tract. It is very encouraging to
see the neighborhood be so involved. The total vote at Patticakes was 145,
the highest vote total was Webster's at I think at 167. Total vote count
for Altadena was 613 up almost 30 percent from last year. Ken Balder was the
highest vote getter at 102. I don't have all the totals be polling station
but will get them in a couple of days.
