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?

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.

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.

Though he's two months shy of the legal drinking age, Princeton University junior Andrew Blumenfeld has been elected to the second and final open seat on the La Cañada Unified school board. Los Angeles County election officials posted updated election results from the Nov. 8 race Friday afternoon, with Blumenfeld gathering 1,835 votes to incumbent Jeanne Broberg's 1,825. There are no more ballots to be counted, making the most recent count decisive, Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder spokeswoman Marcia Ventura said.

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. Born Dec. 8, 1929, Tom was baptized at Holy Redeemer Church in Montrose and was reared in La Cañada. Tom's grandparents, the Meyers family, came to Montrose in the very early 1900s and his mother and father settled in the area in 1923. 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.

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.

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.

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.

It's a decade this month since La Crescenta resident Frank Hoogenhuizen discovered the bodies of Blaine Talmo Jr., 14, of La Crescenta, and Christopher McCulloch, 13, of La Cañada Flintridge, but time has done nothing to ease the memory. Hoogenhuizen and his wife, Grace, spent July 23, 2000, inside, avoiding the sweltering summer heat. At 8 p.m. he ventured into the yard, glanced over his back wall and saw two neighborhood boys lying on the playground blacktop at Valley View Elementary School, which abuts his property.

A dozen years after La Cañada residents Harold “Skip” Tillman and his wife, Joni, were found buried in remote graves, investigators say they have new developments regarding the murders, but are staying tight-lipped about any details. “There are some things that we're working on, but it's not anything I can divulge right now,” said Det. Ryan Ford of the San Bernardino Sheriff's Department Cold Case Homicide Division. “It's definitely a case that we have open and we're actively seeking out additional leads and information.” Skip Tillman, an accountant, and Joni, a homemaker, were last seen dining at J.J. Steakhouse in Pasadena on Feb. 6, 2000.

Dining With Duvall By Lynn Duvall Last month I enjoyed a meal in the Hoover High School cafeteria, catered by Acapulco. My table mates were strangers, though, like me, they were graduates of the high school. We'd gathered with nearly 100 other grads to work on plans for the upcoming 75th anniversary celebration on May 15. One gentleman talked effusively about the jazz ensemble at the school. His enthusiasm ran very high. Finally, when he stopped for a breath, I asked, "How do you know so much about them?"
