January 2013 Issue of Ladera Times

We almost gave up!  At one point, their server wasn’t even responding.  But the Ladera Times is back online with their January 2013 issue, available here.  Among the stories is a touching piece about efforts to raise funds for young Ladera Ranch resident Blake McGraw’s prosthetic arm.  Read the article and help little Blake if you can!
