Clarifying a crime blotter entry
An incident was reported in the Crescenta Valley Sun Crime Blotter on Jan. 2 on El Caminito Street in La Crescenta about an AAA member who called for roadside service and was distraught over the treatment of the AAA unit/technician who was sent to her location.
To clear up a bit of confusion for our community, my family has owned and operated Crescenta Valley Tow in La Crescenta for the past (almost) 48 years; we are the AAA provider in our area and have been recognized as being an excellent service provider.
However, a few years ago, AAA started a battery service replacement program that required the contract stations to sell a certain percentage of batteries.
Crescenta Valley Tow did not meet the requirements of sold batteries, so all “jump start” or battery issue calls have been run by another towing company.
Numerous citizens in our community have contacted Crescenta Valley Tow concerned that we were the company that the victim in the crime blotter described.
I would like to adamantly state that we are not that company and if anyone ever has an issue with the service we have provided them, please contact us at (818) 248-1466 or e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Cougar spotted at country club
I would like to alert our community to an adult mountain lion sighting Friday, Jan. 30 at 8:40 p.m. The lion was crossing Starlight Crest near Godbey Drive, between the 1st and 2nd holes of La Cañada Flintridge Country Club.
It is easy to forget our neighbors are also the inhabitants of Angeles Crest Forest. Walkers and pet owners should be cautious at dawn and dusk.

Wants to send IOU to state
If the political hacks in Sacramento are going to send out IOUs to people who expect to receive a tax refund, them I’m going to send them an IOU for the income tax I owe! “Starve the beast in Sacramento.”

Touched by article on her dad
A friend of our family made us aware of the article Mary O’Keefe wrote about our father [“Recalling a fallen hero of 40 years ago,” Jan. 30].
On behalf of my mother, sisters and myself I would like to thank her very much.
