10-20-30 Years Ago

Ten Years Ago

The Bridgestone-Firestone store in La Cañada was among many across the nation suffering from the fallout of a massive tire recall announced by the company. Ford Explorers were the vehicle most commonly affected by the recall.


Twenty Years Ago

An unemployed 35-year-old La Cañada man was arrested on charges of armed robbery after holding up the La Cañada Arco station. The man, who used a gun to carry out the crime, was easily identified because he was wearing a shirt that had his name on it.


Thirty Years Ago

More than 30 La Cañada homes were targeted by thieves in a four-week crime spree during the summer of 1982 when more than $52,000 worth of goods were reported stolen.


Forty Years Ago

More than 800 trees were planted on the JPL campus when Moulder Bros., a landscaping firm from Glendale, completed a $63,000 project there that was designed to beautify and prevent erosion.


Fifty Years Ago

Sport Chalet owners Norbert and Irene Olberz moved their business, which was then just one store, into the former location of Flintridge House furniture shop. The larger space would give them the opportunity to expand their rental of ski and scuba diving equipment, Norbert Olberz said.
