Event Organizers Cancel Race Due To Poor Air Quality
We regret to inform you that we have been compelled to cancel today's Kaiser Permanente Pasadena Marathon as a result of the significant wildfires in the Los Angeles area and resulting unsafe air quality. Pasadena Forward's decision was made in consultation with the Kaiser Permanente Medical Team and the City of Pasadena.
Please know that it was extremely difficult to arrive at this decision, and we know that this is a disappointing outcome for all of us who have worked so hard for this inaugural event. However, the only appropriate response to this emergent situation, given that the safety and well-being of our participants is at the forefront of our concerns, was to cancel.
Over the next several days, we will hold discussions to determine appropriate next steps. Once concrete plans have been developed, updates will be posted at www.pasadenamarathon.org. All registered participants will also be notified via email of all important updates.
Thank you for your support and patience as we work through this challenge. We hope you are safe and well.
Executive Director, Pasadena Forward

At my polling place this morning in Pasadena on Washington Blvd, Longfellow Elementary I noticed people wearing political buttons, but I also noticed what was something very interesting in the school yard which was right next to the auditorium, kids chanting/singing Obama, Obama, ..... That to me was pretty amazing. It could have had something to do with the fact that the kids were Afro-American, but I really didn't pay attention to that. Kids are influenced by the media and they do listen and watch what is happening.
So far it seems that Barack Obama will win, but nothing is given yet.
As of 5:30pm Pacific Time, 77 electoral votes for Obama and 34 for McCain.
It was good to see the stock market make a nice move up today. In addition we are seeing gas prices dipping below $2 a gallon at stations around the country. In the Los Angeles area, Burbank - Pasadena we are still in the $3 range.

Next Tuesday we will elect the next President of the United States. The result will have great consequences for the nation.
This election offers a choice is between two men with dramatically different visions of the future. We have strong feelings about this choice. But we feel even more strongly that all Americans, regardless of political preference, have a stake in the outcome and should vote in this critical election.
This is likely to be a close election. Your vote matters. Please use it and make a difference.
