In the interest of gender equality, 10 male students at La Cañada High School vied for the title of “Mr. La Cañada” Friday night during a first-ever male beauty pageant hosted by the school's Associated Student Body. Competitors participated in a Q&A portion, a dance number, talent competition and a swimsuit competition, according to ASB adviser Bill Lively. “I told them there have to be tops, and no Speedos,” Lively said in an earlier interview. PHOTOS: First 'Mr. La Cañada' pageant held Admission was free this year, although members of the LCHS Bridge program, a peer counseling group, solicited donations for a Monday head-shaving event to raise money for pediatric cancer research through the nonprofit St. Baldrick's Foundation.

The La Cañada Flintridge Country Club on Friday will tee off a new attempt to draw members into golfing with the official ribbon-cutting on a new practice facility. Combining a fully-enclosed five-station tee area and practice green, the facility is unique in Los Angeles, with a price tag of more than $400,000 according to club General Manager Rick Adams. Adams, who came to La Cañada after working as head golf pro at The Crosby in Rancho Santa Fe, said that the practice facility is a smart investment at a time when golf's popularity among young people is waning, especially compared to rapidly growing extreme sports.

The blows came one after another. First doctors told Sonia Desormeaux that her son, Jacob, had serious kidney problems. Then they determined he was profoundly deaf and had a severe balance disorder that delayed his ability to walk. There were frequent bumps and falls — Jacob was always black and blue with bruises. His parents constructed a helmet in order to protect his head. "When he was a baby I would literally walk around with both arms around him, shielding him from everything," Sonia said.

Fallout surrounding firefighting tactics used during the Station fire intensified this week as Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank) joined Los Angeles County Supervisor Mike Antonovich in calling for a federal investigation. “I think there have been sufficient questions raised about whether the early stages of the fire could have been handled differently that may have resulted in a much better outcome, and that a federal investigation is warranted,” Schiff said Tuesday. Inquiries center around whether the U.S. Forest Service was sufficiently aggressive in its tactics during the first 48 hours of the fire — specifically, whether a targeted aerial attack might have subdued the blaze before it grew out of control.

The most important issue to the majority in the large audience at Tuesday night?s school board meeting was not whether or not the board would go forward with a parcel tax (that decision is reported on page 1) but instead the fate of the special education Foothills School. Parents and staff from the school spoke to the board during public communications on the importance of keeping the school at its present 4490 Cornishon Ave. location. The district was made aware last week of the possibility that the Foothills School would be closed and the students moved to a larger Burbank facility, Magnolia Park School.

Genetics is one thing. Being the daughter of a German gymnast, as Berit Kaesler is, may give an athlete a head start, but Kaesler might have been born to play water polo. “I used to be a swimmer and I used to play soccer,” the La Cañada High senior said, “but I was never that great at soccer, and swimming got really boring. Water polo seemed to be the perfect fit for me. Being able to swim and outswim other girls, all the strength required. “And then there’s the thinking involved and you have to be able to see what’s going on around the pool.

When asked how he thought the Flintridge Prep Rebels were going to follow up their CIF Division XIII championship season this year, Head Coach Marty Konrad made one statement that pretty much sums up the team's situation for 2004. "We needs lots of help from the guy upstairs," the coach said and he wasn't referring to Prep's headmaster. Trying to field a team that will have just one returning starter on offense and three returning players on defense will mostly likely require divine intervention and a lot of luck.

After Emily Bernstein recorded the clarinet solo for the score of the motion picture "The Terminal," director Steven Spielberg - a former clarinetist himself - insisted that Bernstein's name appear in the film's end credits, although traditionally individual musicians performing in studio orchestras remain anonymous. Bernstein considered this experience, which took place in March 2004 between chemotherapy treatments, not only a great honor but an even greater source of comfort.
