The commercials and billboards are everywhere; women are holding up signs and wearing shirts that tell friends, "one less." One less. What do they mean by that? The ads are trying to get more people to look into the fairly new vaccine, Gardasil, which prevents women from getting human papilloma virus, a disease which can lead to cervical cancer. The vaccine is received in a series of three shots over a six-month period. What is important to understand about this vaccine is that it "may not fully protect everyone and does not prevent all types of cervical cancer," warns the Gardasil website.

And the glory of angels was all around. The Bible describes angels as being mediums of God’s power who execute God’s will, revealing themselves to individual humans and sometimes to a whole nation as on the night of Christ’s birth. For Lorraine Watkiss of La Crescenta, the first angel came to her one evening in the midst of great pain, according to her husband, John Watkiss. She witnessed a golden glow on the ceiling of her bedroom. The glow transformed into an angelic face, framed by an elaborate rose petal headdress.

While La Cañada is a town where families live in luxurious multi-million dollar houses and where high school students drive lavish cars that their teachers can't afford, there are still those who have a heart to help the less privileged. For example, La Cañada resident Lars Perkins is a volunteer pilot who works with Remote Area Medical, a nonprofit organization founded by Stan Brock, co-star of the 1960s television series "Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom." RAM provides free healthcare to those in isolated areas of the globe.

Loa Blasucci Let me begin by quoting one of the coolest guys that ever walked the planet; "Nature is the healer of all disease." He also wrote the Oath of Medical Ethics that physicians take as they begin their medical practice today. His name was Hippocrates, the founder of medicine. Other doctors of his day believed illness and disease occurred if you were possessed by evil spirits or simply on the Gods bad list. He believed that illness had a rational, physical explanation. My study of the human body has taught me to whole-heartedly agree with Hippocrates.
