Dancing is her passion. Kelly Phelan has been taking dance instruction classes ? from ballet and tap to jazz, Broadway and lyrical ? for just about half of her 8-year-old life. The youth said there?s nothing she?d rather do than tap her toes and move her feet. But, there?s more to this week?s Valley Sun All-Star than rhythm, tempo and talent. The Palm Crest Elementary School third-grader also has a passion for people and making life a little brighter for those less fortunate. Kelly?

Rebekah Sosland remembers the first time she saw the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity touch down on the Martian surface 10 years ago . She was 14, in the eighth grade in Fredericksburg, Texas, and watching the momentous event unfold on television as classmates around her chatted and passed notes. "I saw this big bouncing popcorn thing on this red surface, and a voice said we now had two rovers on Mars," Sosland recalls. "I thought, 'Oh my gosh, we have a rover on another planet?

Arizona's new immigration law, signed last week by Gov. Jan Brewer, has sparked furor and protest all over the country. The law makes it a state crime to lack immigration papers and requires police to determine whether people they stop are in the country illegally. Some say the law goes too far in protecting the country from illegal immigrants. Defenders of the law — angry over the charges of racism permeating the debate — say it is needed because the federal government has failed to enforce border security with Mexico.

Following a tradition going back more than six decades, the La Cañada Thursday Club held its Bal Blanc de Noel on Saturday, presenting debutantes who have spent 16 months preparing for the occasion as part of the club's Les Fleurettes program. The young women have been immersed in social and community service activities, cultural education, personal development and etiquette instruction. The black-tie gala will be held at the Omni Hotel in downtown Los Angeles. The presenter for the evening will be Mayor Pro Tem Laura Olhasso.

For nearly a decade, I have taken the opportunity to highlight many of the impressive college choices made available to the graduates of La Cañada High School. The Class of 2012 was no exception. Of the 323 LCHS 2012 graduates, 98% have enrolled at colleges throughout the country and abroad, of whom more than three-fourths selected four-year colleges. Last year, LCHS graduates were offered admission at highly selective colleges including 21 of US News & World Report's 25 top-ranked “national universities” and the vast majority of its top-ranked “national liberal arts colleges.” La Cañada also continued its long-standing tradition as a top UC and USC-feeder school.

Author and syndicated radio talk show host Dennis Prager is one of the better conversationalists you'd ever meet, but he pulls no punches for political correctness' sake. "Ask me anything," he invites during an afternoon meal at Ichiban Japanese Restaurant in La Cañada Flintridge — a favorite dining spot of his since moving here in 2007— handling chopsticks almost as deftly as he articulates deeply conservative politics and confident moral beliefs, relishing food and idea alike.

They died young, probably during late adolescence. However by the looks of it, they were in love. Two 6,000-year-old prehistoric skeletons from the Neolithic period were found locked in an eternal embrace in Valdaro, near Verona, Italy, hidden from the eyes of humanity. It could be the oldest love story. Verona is where Shakespeare set the star-crossed lover's tale “Romeo and Juliet.” Incidentally, Verona is the same area where Giuseppe Verdi set the opera “Rigoletto,” the story of doomed lovers.

A Funeral Mass has been set for 10:30 a.m. Saturday, July 21 at St. Bede the Venerable Church for Thomas Joseph Jeffers, Jr., who died July 5, 2007 of cardiac arrest.

The Meyers family as well as the Jeffers helped develop Montrose. Tom Jr. continued his interest in Montrose and with four other businessmen, Hugo Ebmeyer, Bob Cooke, Cliff Banks and Don Carpenter, Montrose grew.

He is 27 years old, stands fit and trim at 6'2'' and will return for a second tour of military duty in Iraq sometime this month. His name is Cpl. Michael T. Morton and he is a U.S. Marine. For me, the war in Iraq now has a face. I met Morton and members of his family last Saturday night during a surprise birthday party for his father, Marty Morton, who is director of Maintenance, Facilities and Operations for La Cañada Unified School District. The party in La Crescenta celebrated a dual purpose, as it was also a farewell send-off for Mike.

Carol Cormaci (“Teachers, we want you to tell us your stories. Please,” Nov. 24), is correct in stating that there is a “culture of silence” within La Cañada Unified School District; I appreciate her initiative to upgrade it through the power of communication. I was hired in 2007 primarily to teach advanced placement government/economics at LCHS, and was not rehired after my second year because I worked to evolve that silence into the highest professional standards for academic communication.

More than 60 years since his military service during World War II, First Lt. Frank Colella was finally given the awards he was due.  In a ceremony held on Tuesday at his home in La Cañada, Colella was presented with the Distinguished Flying Cross and two Air Medals -- honors he should have been given in 1944. According to Colonel Scott Grundahl, who conducted the ceremony, the Distinguished Flying Cross is one of the highest honors an aviator can receive. The medal was authorized by the Air Corps Act in 1926 and recognizes heroism and extraordinary achievement in an aerial fight.
