With one goal in mind, La Cañada Flintridge friends and family came together at last Saturday's LCF Educational Foundation's 16th Annual Spring Gala to raise money that will support class size reduction. The black-tie event, A Hard Day's Night, brought nearly 750 attendees to the Ritz Carlton, Huntington Hotel in Pasadena. "Last year's Gala raised just under $300,000 and we feel confident that we will surpass that amount this year," said Amy Bernhard, who sits on the LCFEF board.

Two years after having a similar application denied, a Korean market on Tuesday was given the unanimous backing of the Planning Commission to sell liquor. The commission will recommend that Lotte Market, at 2135 Foothill Blvd., be granted a conditional use permit to sell beer and wine, pending its approval for a liquor license by the state Department of Alcohol Beverage Control. The matter will next be considered by the City Council. The market's owner, Kyung Ok Jin, and his daughter, Irene Jin, told the commission that last year's closure of neighboring Graham's Liquor sent customers to stores in other areas to find specialty Asian beers and wines.

IRVINE - In its run to the CIF Southern Section Division III championship, the La Cañada High boys' water polo team encountered a fair share of slow starts only to come through in the end. But the finish to the Spartans' season and Saturday afternoon's final following a slow start at William Woollett Aquatics Center in Irvine was just as frustrating as it was disappointing. With its top scorer and coach both gone from the match, the Spartans saw a tight finale slip into a one-sided finish, as third-seeded Martin Luther King won its first-ever CIF-Southern Section title at the expense of La Cañada claiming its sixth when the Wolves used a five-goal fourth period to pull away with a 14-9 victory.

ANAHEIM — Upon entering the Honda Center Saturday to play the La Cañada Spartans for the CIF-Southern Section Division III-AA championship, the Campbell Hall Vikings were ranked No. 19 in the nation by USA Today and No. 2 in the state by Cal-Hi Sports. But after three quarters of play, the Vikings didn't quite seem to be the best team on the court. La Cañada, leading 43-41, was out-muscling and out-playing Campbell Hall. It took a fast-paced fourth quarter and overtime session before the talented Vikings could finally escape with a 61-57 victory.

The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors has put out to bid a project to seismically strengthen the Oak Grove bridge over the Arroyo and Flint Canyon, at a possible cost of up to $3.7 million. The project has been in the works for several years, and will largely be financed through federal funding under the Highway Bridge program. Following the Loma Prieta earthquake in the San Francisco Bay Area in October 1989, emergency California legislation known as Senate Bill 36X was enacted, which requires that all existing publicly-owned bridges in the state be inspected and that those found to have a seismic structural deficiency be upgraded to conform with specific structural standards.

PASADENA - It wasn't long ago that the Rio Hondo League was known for its parity. League champions changed yearly and every team didn't go more than a few seasons without reaching the playoffs. Over the last few years, however, those trends changed, starting at the top. The Monrovia High football program has captured four straight league crowns and is in the midst of a 17-game league winning streak as league play begins Thursday. The Wildcats' physically-tough nature and talented playmaking capabilities are embodied by their blue chip defensive end Ellis McCarthy, a 6-foot-4, 310-pound specimen who has offers from virtually every PAC-12 school.
