Stonehill News is a microblog for a small neighborhood within Altadena. They don't update often, but when they do, it's something good. This month, they have some photos of a bear wandering a local street and private driveway. From January. they have a photo of a cougar in NASA's Jet Propulsion Lab parking lot and a half eaten deer carcass from a couple years ago. (via Mayor Sam)
