I recently moved back to the Westside after several years in Pasadena, and was surprised to find so many Westsiders retaining outdated perceptions of Pasadena. Take the UCLA freshman quoted in your Jan. 24 article about protests at the Federal Building in Westwood, who said, "It's not like Pasadena. They only march there for the Rose Bowl." This student's perception is stuck in the 1960s. They march in Pasadena. Recently, 250 Blair High students held a two-mile anti-war march; last year, 200 Occidental College students occupied their administration building; in December, 2,300 Pasadenans marched to raise money to fight AIDS; the Rev. George Regas of All Saints Episcopal Church in Pasadena founded the Religious Community Against War in the Persian Gulf; and weekly peace vigils have been held in downtown Pasadena starting almost as soon as troops were sent to the Middle East.

A TV show based on Pasadena ("Happily Wallowing in Some Trashy Stereotypes" by Howard Rosenberg, Sept. 28)? How fabulous! Here is a community filled with Armenians, Russian immigrants, El Salvadorans, a Thai community, Muslim centers of worship, generations of Mexican American history and African American drama, as well as old and new money capitalizing on this rich tapestry. Oh, wait a second, it's about a WASP family. Hmmm. I guess the best I can hope for will be a heavily accented Hispanic maid.

A black bear wandered alarmingly close to the 210 Freeway in Pasadena on Thursday as wildlife officials and other authorities tried to tranquilize it and take it back into the forest. The bear -- estimated to be 3 years old and weigh 275 pounds -- was first reported about 3:30 p.m. near Cleveland Elementary School at 524 Palisades St., California Fish and Wildlife spokesman Andrew Hughan said. Television footage showed the bear going through yards and the Brookside Golf Course as it wandered closer to the freeway.

At 16 years old, San Diego County's Stone Brewing Co. is ancient compared to the still-fledging L.A. craft beer scene. Along with Sierra Nevada Brewing and Lagunitas Brewing, Stone Brewing has become a nationally known California brand and is now the 11th largest craft brewery in America, according to 2011 year-end statistics from the Brewers Assn. Yet Stone Brewing's next target for expansion isn't some far-flung locale. It's cozy Pasadena. Perhaps as early as August, Pasadena will have its very own Stone Company Store on South Raymond Avenue, where, in addition to buying all things Stone, drinking-age patrons can sample beers and get glass jugs - called growlers - to go. But don't confuse it with a bar. "It won't feel like a bar. It will feel like a store," said chief executive and co-founder Greg Koch.

For Maricela Ruiz, a trip to the store to pick up a few groceries or to her daughter's school felt nearly impossible. “I'd go home crying,” said Ruiz, 37. She couldn't speak English, and after a few failed attempts at communication, began to wait for her husband to come home to help her run errands. For Ruiz, who moved from Mexico to Pasadena two years ago, the language barrier proved isolating. But a year ago Ruiz joined Mother's Club Family Learning Center, a nonprofit in Pasadena that provides English classes to mothers and their children.
