Over the past month at La Cañada High School, clubs and programs have begun to recruit potential members for the upcoming school year. Applications poured in for clubs such as “Bridge,” a peer counseling program; “Prom Commission” for next year’s senior and junior proms; and “Omega,” also known as the yearbook staff. Within every applicant was a high hope for those few desired spots. The process of applying consisted of filling out a written application and attending one-to- three interviews per person.

Hair today, gone tomorrow - that was the case for five teachers and 15 students at La Cañada High School Monday afternoon, who went under the razor for a worthy cause. Members of the Bridge Program, an on-campus peer counseling group, held a head-shaving event to raise funds for pediatric cancer research through the nonprofit St. Baldrick's Foundation.

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.

In the interest of gender equality, 10 male students at La Cañada High School vied for the title of “Mr. La Cañada” Friday night during a first-ever male beauty pageant hosted by the school's Associated Student Body. Competitors participated in a Q&A portion, a dance number, talent competition and a swimsuit competition, according to ASB adviser Bill Lively. “I told them there have to be tops, and no Speedos,” Lively said in an earlier interview. PHOTOS: First 'Mr. La Cañada' pageant held Admission was free this year, although members of the LCHS Bridge program, a peer counseling group, solicited donations for a Monday head-shaving event to raise money for pediatric cancer research through the nonprofit St. Baldrick's Foundation.

The La Cañada City Council on Monday considered an ordinance to amend and organize the city's laws concerning the trail system. The ordinance will be a part of the recently adopted trails master plan if it is adopted at the next meeting. The law was drafted under the direction of the ad hoc trails committee chaired by Mary Barrie. The trail system runs on private as well as public property, some of which is owned by the city, county, state and federal governments. The ordinance regulates starting a fire, smoking, digging, littering, operating motor vehicles, walking a dog or a cat without a leash, encroachment of trees, improper drainage, and construction of fences that would be harmful to trail users or horses.

After eight months of detours, La Cañadans living near the Jessen Drive bridge came out Monday to celebrate the ribbon-cutting on a new span. The 41-foot, two-lane, reinforced concrete bridge is larger than its predecessor, including two shoulders and a sidewalk on its western side. Resident Candace Dougherty said she has fond memories of the small trestle bridge that was demolished this spring, but she realized it had to be replaced. The old bridge was rated a 47.8 on the Caltrans sufficiency scale for safety and reliability, and state law requires that any bridge rated below 50 must be replaced.

The Jessen Drive Bridge isn't necessarily a bridge too far. But it is a bridge too old, at least as far as the city is concerned. It's been planning its replacement for at least a decade. And now those plans are coming to fruition. The two-lane wood-and-steel trestle bridge, built over Earle Canyon in the 1930s, serves as the main route for the parents and students who reside west of Palm Drive to reach Palm Crest Elementary. It is tentatively scheduled to be demolished in early April, according to city engineer Ying Kwan.
