Red ribbons can be seen tied onto trees, fences and signs all around La Cañada this week and every child in public school knows what that signals; “Red Ribbon Week.” “They teach you that there is no point in doing [drugs],” said Douglass Paine, third grader at La Cañada Elementary School, “because what is the point in doing them?” Paine and his fellow students in teacher Mary Linda Vandevelde’s classroom had participated in a Kites for Kids assembly early Monday morning.

La Cañada Elementary School students on Tuesday got a head start on their district counterparts in observing Red Ribbon Week, an annual national substance abuse awareness campaign. The LCE campus organized an orange-and-black “Say Boo to Drugs” day and allowed children to wear zany hairstyles. The rest of the local public schools plan to hold related events next week. The La Cañada Elementary observance dovetailed with a recent visit by the school's resource officer, Deputy Cesar Romero, a member of the Los Angeles County Sheriff Department's Success Through Awareness and Resistance unit.

by Mary O'Keefe Red ribbons have lined local elementary and high schools for two weeks. They are there because 20 years ago Drug Enforcement Administration Agent Enrique “Kiki” Camarena was tortured and killed in Mexico while investigating a drug cartel. It is in his memory - and his belief that one person can make a difference - that families, communities, schools and the PTA have supported the Red Ribbon Week philosophy. La Cañada elementary schools recognized the week from Oct. 17 through 21 while La Cañada High School and Glendale Unified School District schools observed Red Ribbon Week Oct. 24 through Oct. 28. Residents in the western area of La Cañada attend GUSD schools.
