With the snip of a giant pair of ceremonial scissors the La Cañada High School tennis courts were officially opened on March 13. The courts were closed for about ten years and the tennis team had been practicing and competing at the La Cañada Flintridge Country Club. The club?s setting may have been very nice, said coach Will Moravec, but having the team on their own high school campus is much better. ?The one things the kids would tell me is that they wanted to have the team here,?

by Chris Sutton In two unanimous decisions, the La Cañada Flintridge Parks and Recreation Commission on Friday night approved a design for a city plaque commemorating 9/11 and declined to take action regarding the commercial use of the public tennis courts. Also during the commission's annual meeting in Memorial Park, Keith Tobias was elected chairperson and Jon Moldafsky was elected vice-chair for the coming year.

La Cañada boys' tennis has had a rivalry with league champion San Marino for as long as Head Coach Will Moravec can remember. That's quite a while, since Moravec has been coaching for the Spartans for 16 years. This could be the year, however. The Spartan line-up features a variety of players and talent on the court. "We have deep team this year," said Moravec. "That's new for La Cañada." The team lost three seniors from last year's roster, including their number one singles player and doubles team.

When La Cañada High School students begin the fall term next Tuesday they?ll find their school days will become slightly longer. The district board approved a measure that would add four minutes a week to the school schedule. That may not seem like a lot of time, but LCHS Principal Damon Dragos said that those few minutes would enrich all high school students. According to Dragos, the time will allow students to use their school time more effectively. The main change will come with the sustained silent reading program.

Every so often we publish news stories or op-ed pieces that give us reason - based on previous experiences - to expect to receive letters to the editor the following week. When we don't hear a word after running something potentially controversial, it catches me by surprise. This week, I'm taken aback by the dead silence that met the news we reported last Thursday about the two Supreme Court decisions that effectively restored the rights of same-sex couples to marry in our state and provided them with federal benefits previously denied by the Defense of Marriage Act. We ran the main story at the top of the front page, along with a sidebar article, which centered on interviews with local pastors who may or may not be offering services to gay and lesbian couples at their respective churches.

To understand how Catherine Banbury sought to enforce an $11,610.58 judgment against La Cañada real estate owned by Delos Arnold, a former Iowa state senator (“The mystery of Delos Arnold,” Around Town, June 20), we headed to the Los Angeles County Law Library in downtown Los Angeles. Our goal was to ask the reference librarian for the original appellate briefs in the 1891 California Supreme Court case of Banbury v. Arnold. Founded in 1891, the Los Angeles County Law Library has nearly one million books and documents.

A state appeals court will hear oral arguments next month in the case of the truck driver involved in a fatal 2009 collision on Angeles Crest Highway in La Cañada Flintridge.

Costa's big rig lost its brakes as he traveled downhill on Angeles Crest Highway on April 1, 2009.
