Girl Scout Malia Mailes is being hailed in her hometown of La Cañada Flintridge for her crusade -- and her prescience. Mailes, a 16-year-old La Cañada High School sophomore, had been warning for months about the safety problems posed by trucks driving downhill on Angeles Crest Highway. Then on Wednesday, a big rig lost control on the road, barreled through an intersection and smashed into a bookstore, killing two people and injuring 12 others. Now some residents are wondering why more people didn't heed Malia's warnings. http://www.latimes.com/news/local/la-me-girlscout3-2009apr03,0,1085428.story This is a big local story here. I just listened to an interview with this sharp gal. She made an entire power point presentation to the City Council to try and get something done about this intersection.
