A powerful assembly was presented at Rosemont Middle School and Crescenta Valley High School students this week. Rachel?s Challenge was brought to the schools to start a ?chain reaction? of positive energy. Rachel Scott was the first person killed at the 1999 tragedy at Columbine High School in Colorado where students Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold entered the school with guns and pipebombs. In the end, 12 students and one teacher were dead. Rachel?s writings from her journal are used as a foundation to turn that tragic event into a positive outreach for students.

It had been a hard day. With my wife, Kaitzer, at school getting “organized” for the upcoming semester, I had the girls — all day. I shall not commiserate with you — you wouldn’t understand. But all I wanted to do was spend a couple of hours hanging at Penelope’s sipping on a chai latte with a good book. No sir, I had to preside over the girls’ routine of getting up, dressing, brushing teeth, reading, math and making breakfast, lunch and snack.

When Suzanne O'Connor was a teen she would rebel against her mom, L.A.'s original Bargain Lady, Geri Cook, by going shopping at Saks Fifth Avenue and charging something. Now, years later with a daughter of her own, she is a "bargainologist" who hopes her daughter won't find her way to Saks Fifth Avenue with her credit card. "My mom is the one who taught me value," O'Connor said. "She taught me how to look for quality at a really great price and how to find those hidden places." This La Crescenta resident spends about six hours a day researching bargains, posting sales, talking to stores, working on her message board and writing articles for her online newsletter that she does for www.BargainsLa.

The Music in the Park concert series has now faded away and will not be back again until next Fiesta Day’s celebration. Gotta admit, I’ll miss it! Last Sunday evening was a beautiful way to say goodbye to the music. It was such a gorgeous sunset with wisps of pink clouds floating across the blue sky. As dusk deepened, a sliver of a new moon appeared. A new moon always reminds me of a scimitar and the tales of “One Thousand and One Nights.” Sunday night’s crowd was in a lively mood as well as the local musicians of the band, Palm Drive.
