This year, Crescenta Valley High School (CVHS) was one of the 84 schools that applied for the Bravo award, and now is now being honored as one of the top four finalists. The Bravo Award, founded in 1983, is given to exceptional "educators and schools for excellence in all of the arts disciplines." Each year, schools from all over apply in hopes to be honored with the sculpture for the trophy case, and the recognition for what they do so well. The $10,000 that goes to the winning school might also have a little incentive as well.

Odds immediately swung in favor of the Crescenta Valley High boys' soccer team when Pavle Atanackovic controlled the ball. Using his gifted strength and speed, Atanackovic provided a buzz on the field - and for the spectators lined up on the sidelines - each time he launched a shot on goal. He found a way to score timely goals and played a vital role in helping Crescenta Valley win the CIF Southern Section Division IV championship this season. "Players like Pavle certainly don't grow on trees, and he's a special player," said Crescenta Valley Coach Grant Clark, whose team finished 23-1-6 and 12-0-2 in the Pacific League.

Participating in the Babe Herman Tournament last Friday at Stengel Field, the La Cañada boys' varsity baseball team lost to Crescenta Valley 8-3 last Friday La Cañada, which fell to 7-5 overall and remained at 3-2 in Rio Hondo League play, played Rancho Cucamonga Los Osos on Monday in the tournament while the Falcons, 7-5 overall and 4-1 in the Pacific League, played San Bernardino Pacific at Stengel Field. No results were available at press time. La Cañada will play Crescenta Valley again at Dunsmore Park next Tuesday at 3:15 p.m. The Spartans struck first against CV, picking up a run on an error in the top of the first inning to go up 1-0. That didn't last long as the Falcons came back with a run in the bottom of the frame to tie the game 1-1. CV scored a single run in the second and two more in the third before La Cañada answered back with a run in the fourth.

Last season's Crescenta Valley High School football team was a senior laden squad with an experienced quarterback and several other players who had seen significant varsity playing time. Despite that, the Falcons went just 1-4 outside of the weak Pacific League. However, they came back in the second half of the season and finished in a three-way tie for the league title with Muir and Arcadia. But, fate stepped in at the start of post season play. CV lost a coin toss and received the third seed for the playoffs, putting them up against a far more talented St. Paul team.

Robots bang into each other as they speed across the floor. Meteor balls fly through the air as a cheering crowd stands on the sidelines, rooting for their favorite bot. It may sound like a cross between a futuristic basketball and hockey game but it was really just a friendly get together from robotic teams from La Cañada and the Crescenta Valley. For the first time three high school robotic teams, from La Cañada, Crescenta Valley and Clark Magnet high schools, gathered Feb. 13 for a night of battle bots and geek speak.

The recent rains washed out an Irvine tournament slated for the Crescenta Valley Soccer Club's Under 13 girls soccer team, so Tournament Director Gary Johnson scrambled and came up with a last-minute substitute, the JUSA Freedom Cup. There was one catch - - the girls would have to play up in the Under 14 bracket. The girls rose to the challenge and had one of their best tournaments on record, allowing only two goals in four games against older competition. CV faced the Orange Soccer Club in its opener and controlled the tempo of the match from the outset.

Last year, Crescenta Valley scored 10 points against the La Cañada varsity football team in preseason play. Last Friday night at Glendale High, the Falcons scored even fewer points, eight, against the Spartans. However, CV Head Football Coach Alan Eberhart has a much better attitude about the outcome of the game this year than last season. "It was disappointing. We should have won the game," he said in a post game interview. Last year, the Spartans set a school record for points scored in a game with their 57-10 win over the Falcons.

Roughly nine weeks away from the opening kickoff of high school football, the annual St. Francis Passing Tournament set down at St. Francis and La Cañada high on Friday. Though just about every coach is quick to point out summer passing leagues are about getting familiar with schemes and building camaraderie and that wins and losses don't matter all that much, both St. Francis High and Crescenta Valley were in reach of the tournament crown. And when both came up short, it was clearly disappointing.

In the always-arduous Mission League, St. Francis basketball struggled down the stretch. But those struggles certainly didn't hinder the Golden Knights' playoff seeding, as they drew the No. 2 seed in the CIF Southern Section Division 3-A playoffs. However, as an at-large team out of the Mission League, the Knights are headed on the road, while La Cañada, Crescenta Valley and Flintridge Prep will all host first-round games, as pairings were released on Sunday by the CIF offices.

La Cañada High's girls' basketball team has been at or atop the CIF Southern Section Division 3-A rankings all season, and that will continue going into the postseason. Though it was a little lower than previous years, the Spartans earned the No. 4 seed in the CIF Southern Section playoffs on Sunday, only to have that changed Tuesday. The Spartans (21-5) were bumped up to No. 3, flipping positions with South Pasadena, who forfeited a league game and its half of the Rio Hondo League title to the Spartans, now the league's outright champion.

The Crescenta Valley Sheriff's station was closed briefly Sunday night after a man brought a World War II-era practice grenade to the lobby and it was later rendered safe. The grenade was dropped off in a paper bag at 6:10 p.m. at the station's front lobby in the 4500 block of Briggs Avenue by an 84-year-old man, who had collected it from a friend's widow who wanted to safely dispose it, according to the Crescenta Valley Sheriff's officials. Deputies directed the man to move and place the grenade outside in the station's parking lot. The parking lot and lobby were immediately closed while the sheriff's bomb squad investigated the grenade, which had been stored inside the paper bag. While the bomb squad rendered the grenade was safe, sheriff's officials said old military artillery shouldn't be handled due to the extreme hazard.

“I don't see myself as part of the future. I see myself as part of the past.” And with those words, Sheriff Lee Baca announced the end of a 48-year career with the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department on Tuesday, 15 of those years as head of the largest sheriff's department in the world. Baca's connection to the Crescenta Valley Sheriff's Station is memorable, according to Capt. Bill Song, the station's commander. But his retirement will do little to affect how the 93 employees and 64 sworn deputies do their jobs.

Before the Crescenta Valley Water District, which serves some western La Cañada Flintridge households, draws the mistaken conclusion that residents support the soon-to-be-enacted 16.6% sewer rate hike because only 15 letters of protest were submitted, let's look at some of the reasons for the seemingly scant opposition. About a month ago the agency sent its customers a Public Notice of Proposed Increase in Wastewater Rates advising us that opponents “...may file a written protest of the proposed rate changes by sending a letter to CVWD (at its address on Foothill Boulevard)

Along with reserve deputies and her fellow volunteers, Hunnicutt was honored at the Crescenta Valley station's 50th annual Volunteer and Reserve Award Banquet at Pasadena's Brookside Country Club. Hunnicutt received raucous applause and a standing ovation as she accepted the honor.
