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.

That’s when a La Cañada mom, Theresa Kalnins, headed out to New York City for some life changing moments. Kalnins, 47, had earned a chance to compete in the reality television show, “She’s Got the Look,” which premieres at 9 tonight (Thursday, June 11)

Los Angeles County transportation officials have pushed back its release of an environmental report regarding 710 Freeway extension proposals, local officials learned this week. Once available, the data provided in the draft Environmental Impact report will be analyzed by a group called the ' 5 Cities Alliance,' a partnership between Glendale, La Cañada, Pasadena, South Pasadena and Sierra Madre that allows the cities to pool their resources for one joint study as opposed to each city paying for a separate study.

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.
