Streets of South Pas

In light of these two stories, I wonder how the statistics for pedestrian fatalities in South Pas compare to those of similarly-sized towns?

So. Pasadena Man Killed by SoCal Edison Vehicle
Woman struck, killed by car after exiting bus

Completely off the topic, but did anyone go to the Clean-Air Car Show?

You Don't See This Every Day, or Only in California

On my way home from work, I was walking down Columbia and noticed a squirrel a few yards away from me gnawing on something that looked like a muddy, oversized tennis ball. Either that, or the squirrel was feasting upon some small creature it had just vanquished. As I got closer, I realized that Mr. Squirrel had an avocado between his paws. And he had already polished off about a quarter of it. I walked toward the squirrel, and he actually tried to scurry up the tree for a moment until he slid to the ground, pulled down by the weight of the avocado.

My camera phone does not do the little guy justice.

Use Both Hands

I haven't been able to find out anything else about the fenced off section of road on the southbound side of the 110 at the Fair Oaks intersection, but I did find this. I'm not advocating driving and taking pictures at the same time.

End of the Road

Does anyone know why you have to exit Arroyo Parkway (northbound) onto State St. to get to Fair Oaks? Yesterday, while I was walking across the overpass (on the north side of Fair Oaks), I noticed that there is a fenced-off section of road between the parkway and Fair Oaks. It looks like it was intended to be an exit off the parkway that would feed right into Fair Oaks. I've noticed this before, but it got me wondering why they built it in the first place and why they stopped the project. Did funds run out? Did the city kill it? Did the state kill it? Anyone have any background on this?
