I never played soccer. As a kid I boxed and played hoops and stickball. I just didn't see the big hoopla, nor did I understand the rationale as to why soccer aficionados call it "the beautiful game. " However, for the past two years I've begun to develop an appreciation for the game and through the tutelage of my buddies Don Sheppard, John Baxter, Jack McKenzie and Marco Quezada, I've begun to realize, there is a distinct Zen to soccer.

La Cañada High School Principal Damon Dragos and 7/8 Principal Wendy Sinnette shared their plan for the canine drug detection pilot program that will soon begin at the high school. ?At the beginning of this year there was increasing concern from parents about substance abuse at the 7/8 grade level,? Sinnette said. ?We had some issues and concerns where parents brought things forward.? She added that the turning point that made staff decide to look into the pilot program was when students met with her and told her there were problems with abuse.
