The new president of the La Cañada Unified School District Governing Board, Susan Boyd, said in an interview this week she plans on continuing conducting the board’s business in the same way her predecessor, outgoing president Scott Tracy, established during his two-year tenure at the helm. “The board is a consensus group,” Boyd said. Boyd, elected president Dec. 11 during the annual rotation of officers, said decisions concerning the direction of the district and goals are made together with input from all members.

WEST HILLS — A year ago last week, Austin Frank suffered a double whammy when he broke his right fibula and tibula. Since then, it's been about attending physical therapy sessions and getting back up to speed while playing for the St. Francis High soccer team. Frank hasn't shied away from juggling both tasks, and he was rewarded Monday night. Frank couldn't have picked a better time to score his first goal of the season. It came with two minutes left in the first half to give visiting St. Francis a 1-0 Mission League victory against Chaminade.

That old saying about April showers is certainly true this year. We had a double whammy of raindrops on this past week. No doubt the May flowers will be especially beautiful because of the moisture. This was quite a week for nature happenings. The black bear that wandered into neighboring Montrose and La Crescenta certainly did cause a media flurry - or maybe more like a fury. The hovering helicopters made it sound like we were in a war zone. I'm happy that there was a peaceful resolution and no injuries to humans or the bear, and that he has been taken back to the forest.
