What a difference a road makes. Highway 39, the winding mountain road that provides the only access to Crystal Lake and other recreational areas of the Angeles National Forest from Azusa, quietly reopened this spring, breathing new life into a mountain resort that dates to the 1930s. Now forest officials are working to fully reopen trails and campgrounds at Crystal Lake, which is open for day use. The natural lake at almost 6,000 feet was closed after the Curve Fire of 2002 destroyed about 20,000 acres as well as hiking trails and campsites in the area.

Let me add my view to those of others regarding "Crazy Like a Fox." I was thoroughly disgusted that it was canceled. We need more interesting shows like this. Can't the networks understand that? When CBS switched the show from Sundays to Wednesdays, they ruined it for us. Please bring it back--such excellent casting shouldn't be wasted. Janet Biggs, Anaheim
