With the backing of law enforcement organizations and in the wake of the shooting of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords in Arizona, state Assemblyman Anthony Portantino (D – La Cañada Flintridge) is proposing a statewide ban on openly carrying unloaded firearms in public places. Unless such a law is passed, it would remain legal in California for gun owners to display unloaded weapons in coffee shops, on street corners and in other public places, and also carry on their person ammunition that could be loaded into those guns.

Brendon Shoemake grew up playing club baseball with some of the best talent in Southern California. He's seen his teammates commit to play baseball for major universities and even go on to sign with Major League Baseball teams. Shoemake, a La Cañada High senior, joined their ranks March 8, after verbally committing to play baseball for UC Santa Barbara. The Spartans' No. 1 starting pitcher and center fielder started playing club baseball for the So Cal Blast of Diamond Bar when he was 9. He went on to play for the So Cal Sundevils of Chino Hills and continues to compete for the So Cal Bombers, which he joined at the age of 13. "Playing club baseball really changed the way I go about things, including my work ethic," said Shoemake, adding that it was a life-changing experience seeing former teammates like Bryce Harper — the No. 1 pick in the 2010 Major League Baseball draft by the Washington Nationals — go on to play professionally.

LONG BEACH — Simply call it the Campbell dynasty. The making of the dynasty started with parents Meg and Frank Campbell, who were talented NCAA Division I swimmers. Their children are carrying on the dominance. Senior Alex Campbell and his sister, sophomore Kathryn Campbell, of La Cañada High, shined in front of their parents in Saturday’s CIF Southern Section Division II Swimming and Diving Championships at the Belmont Plaza pool in Long Beach. With his sister sitting behind the block and cheering him on, Alex finished his high school career by winning the 100-yard freestyle in a personal-best time of 46.34 seconds.

May 1 has come and gone - but for the past few weeks, one particular dilemma has found its way into the minds of high school seniors. This seemingly unimportant date holds much significance - it marks the deadline of college decisions, when students must submit their SIRs (Statement of Intent to Register) to the school of their choice. For those who have multiple options on where to spend their next four critical years, selecting a single college may be one of the most difficult and yet important decisions they have to make.
