Weekly Review- 1/8/10

It’s still only the 1st week of the new decade and new year but already so much has happened in Pasadena- let’s take a look at some of this week’s news and top stories from CCN Online:

  • To kick off the new year in Pasadena, the annual Tournament of Roses Parade was held and the city’s fire and police departments both released statistics on the numbers of people injured and the numbers of people arrested. As a recap, fifty-six people were treated by paramedics in Pasadena (mostly for things like sprained ankles and dehydration) and fourty-one people were arrested during the Parade (mostly for things like public intoxication).
  • Pasadena Police are looking for a missing man who went missing while at a local doctor appointment- Police say that George Clay is described as a 48 year old African American, about 6′4″ and 300 pounds. Clay has a mental disability and if you see him, Pasadena Police want to hear from you.
  • TV home improvement star Huell Howser visited Old Town as well as Paseo Colorado to show how local redevelopment efforts helped to re-energize the central Pasadena area with historic preservation, reinvestment, housing and sustainable development. Howser’s special will air on public broadcasting channel KCET on Tuesday the 12th at 7PM.
  • A new contributor has arrived to share stories with CrownCityNews.com: local Attorney Peter Stavropoulos, who also contributes to local blog Rose City Business, is here to share valuable information for businesses on law. His latest article on the CCN site features useful information for small businesses on when to take a case to small claims court.

That’s just a quick outline of what happened this week in Pasadena- Larry and Sehnita will be back on Monday night with even more of the latest news, but until then, have a great weekend and thank you for visiting the new CrownCityNews.com!
