For more than 20 years Michael Huber had been an example of high Christian morals and devotion to community and children. He was sentenced last week in a Pasadena courtroom to four years and eight months in prison for child pornography. Before being arrested, the La Crescenta resident spoke to church groups and PTA audiences, impressing them with his compassion and his understanding of today's youth. He spoke and everyone listened. That was not the case Monday, when he sat and listened to former friends ask him why he had taken their trust and victimized their children.

Good news, bad news, we print it As I mentioned in a previous column, our Valley Sun intern, Leticia Cheng, set up a display of her work when the La Cañada High School Institutes for the 21st Century held its showcase on a Thursday afternoon late last month. I couldn't have been more proud as this high school junior welcomed visitors to her display and told them about her internship experience. She was poised as she easily engaged in conversations with people of all ages, answering their questions and offering them copies of the paper and our goofy little souvenir Valley Sun antenna balls to take with them.

When students first set foot on the brand-new La Cañada High School campus back in September 1963, they had no idea they were creating a legacy. The city's new unified school district had just formed two years prior, separating itself administratively from the Pasadena school system. As a result, La Cañada was opening Foothill Intermediate School on the former La Cañada Junior High site and starting classes at the high school for freshman, sophomores and juniors only. La Cañada teens who were entering their senior year in the fall of 1963 remained at John Muir High School to complete their high school careers in the Pasadena school system.
