  • Fink: Council Update

    Earlier this month, I participated in Lauer’s 40th anniversary celebration. After leaving the event, I started thinking about how fortunate we are in Pasadena to have so many great locally owned small businesses.
    If you live in or around Pasadena then there is a good chance you have shopped at Lauer's, whether buying something freshly made from the bakery, getting lunch at the salad bar or just gathering your weekly groceries, Lauer’s has been a staple in our community for 40 years.
    For me, Lauer's is more than a grocery store - they are a community partner for a better Pasadena. Like many of our local businesses, they give back a tremendous amount of support, time and...

    Why We Celebrate Saint Patrick
    Whether it’s the Sydney Opera House lit in green in Australia or the step dancers marching along Fifth Avenue in New York City, or the revelers dressed as leprechauns in Tokyo, Japan, or our own Governor Martin O’Malley’s Celtic rock band performing in Baltimore, March 17 belongs to St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, and also the patron saint of Nigeria.
    Many of us know the story of St. Patrick, the son of Romans living in Britain who was captured by Irish pirates when he was 14 or 16 and enslaved as a shepherd for six years in Ireland, a land of Druids and pagans.
    A turning point in his life, this ordeal motivated him to grow...
