For years, there have been conspicuous issues at the high school that never seem to get handled. These concerns have been brought to the board's attention repeatedly, yet they have not been resolved. In fact, some current board members simply don't see any problems. So we need to ask ourselves, “Is this as good as it gets?” Or do we aim higher and start addressing these concerns so that LCHS can be even better? In order to take that step, we need someone on the board who agrees there is room for improvement and who has the background to implement those changes.

When La Cañada resident Pat Johannes returned to his alma mater North Dakota State University a few weeks ago, he felt a little melancholy. ?It made me feel like I was back in my younger days,? Johannes, 42, said. ?I felt undeserving, and it made me want to go back in time and do better.? The modest Johannes has plenty to be proud of, however, which was why he was recently inducted to the Bison Hall of Fame for his role in the school?s 1984-1988 Greco-Roman wrestling team.
