I really have to laugh to myself when I hear someone complain about the lack of stores in the mall. Got news for them. We used to have to go to San Fernando to get school clothes. In the mid-1960s we went to the Topanga Plaza mall and shopped at the Broadway or May Co. We didn’t have a mall. We had some carrot fields near where the mall is today.

Rattlesnakes are our neighbors. They are an important part of the local ecosystem and help to keep the vermin population in check. They do not want to fight with you; they would much rather go on their way and do their thing. But if you insist on threatening or provoking them, they will strike back to protect themselves. So if you do encounter a rattlesnake, particularly in your backyard, call Animal Control to remove it rather than killing it.
