It was a drizzly, dreary, cold Thursday morning. I was sitting in the LCHS bleachers writing thoughts appropriate for graduation day. But beyond the June gloom there was promise in the air. Graduation is euphoric; it takes me back to a time when every breath was a new beginning and gives me hope that my fate is not yet sealed. My daughter Sabine was being promoted from the eighth grade and amidst the pomp and circumstance of the morning, I was filled with assorted emotions. Graduation is only a concept.

La Cañada senior Justin Luthey hopes there are a few good building supply stores out there willing to help him begin his eagle scout project. "I have actually seen people fall through the football field bleacher steps at LCHS," said Luthey, on the deteriorated state of the school's bleachers. "People were not hurt, but it was evident to me then that a project to fix the bleachers would be necessary." Luthey's project is beginning on a sour note, since the paint and lumber stores he has contacted so far have been unable to donate the supplies he needs.

Tears and fears and feeling proud Last Thursday evening the 2004 class of La Cañada High School graduated with due pomp and circumstance on the football field. Except, uh, it's not exactly a field any more because LCHS now boasts a new artificial turf playing ground. More about that later. The graduation ceremony opened with all of the traditional observances including band and choral music, handsomely directed by Sue Hamre and Lori Marie Rios, respectively. Families and friends seated in the bleachers sang the Star Spangled Banner and participated in the pledge of allegiance led by Associated Student Body President Brian Kotick.

The La Cañada High School principal was before the school board Tuesday answering questions centering on teen drug use during Spartan home football games.

When Courtney McCutchan came down with the rebound on the missed shot by Blair with 10.6 seconds left, an audible sigh of relief exhaled from the bleachers behind the La Cañada bench. With a minute left in the game, La Cañada (14-4, 2-1 in Rio Hondo league play) looked like they had sewn things up in a very tough game. Up 41-35, a six-point lead would be tough to lose. Blair guard Michiko Chavous took the rock and nailed a three. After McCutchan hit one of two free throws to make it a four-point game, 42-38, Chavous again hit a three-pointer and the Spartans?
