Hopeful after learning that some $350,00 raised at a gala Saturday night was earmarked to save teachers in the La Cañada Unified School District, the school board decided Tuesday how to allocate funds sent their way by such private efforts. Following the failure of Measure P on the March 2 ballot, private fund-raising has been determined as an option to alleviate budget cuts in services and staffing recently announced, including the 21.1 certificated positions that were expected to be eliminated or not filled.

MONROVIA - With the top team decided Tuesday, it was time to determine the league's top wrestlers in the Rio Hondo League Finals at Monrovia High Saturday.

It is almost a certainty that at least one, possibly more, earthquakes have shaken California today. They may not have been large, but they were all significant because these small quakes release pressure from faults. According to the U.S. Geological Survey, a fault is a three-dimensional surface within Earth where rocks have broken. The rocks on one side of the fault have moved past the other side. A fault line is where the fault cuts the Earth?s surface. With the help of an airborne radar system, scientists at NASA/Jet Propulsion Laboratory in La Cañada Flintridge are studying these faults throughout the state to create a type of earthquake map that will allow them to get a better understanding of which faults are most active and which are more likely to have large earthquakes in the future.

Attorneys argued Monday that it was either religious intolerance or workplace incompetence that drove systems administrator David Coppedge from a post at Jet Propulsion Laboratory last year. Monday's arguments capped a five-week trial in Coppedge's lawsuit against the NASA lab in La Cañada Flintridge, in which he claimed he was removed from his job in 2011 because of his advocacy of the theory of intelligent design of the universe. “This is a series of retaliation - a series of subtly damaging injuries all starting from David's reaction” to discriminatory actions taken by supervisors, said William Becker, Coppedge's attorney.
