That’s when La Cañada High School senior Steven Cronkhite watched his first episode of the television show COPS. “My jaw just dropped and I thought, now, that’s what I want to do,” Cronkhite said. The La Cañada teen is this week’s Valley Sun All-Star. Cronkhite is the son of William and Michelle Cronkhite. He has a sister, Amy, 13, an eighth grader at La Cañada 7/8. Steven Cronkhite was born in Pasadena and moved with his family to La Cañada when he was about 5 years old. He attended Paradise Canyon Elementary School and later La Cañada High 7/8.

A steady stream of visitors walked through the Crescenta Valley Sheriff?s Station on Saturday as they got an up-close and personal look at the men and women who serve at the station. About 400 people visited a variety of booths that gave them a chance to learn about everything from how to join the station?s youth explorer program to water saving tips from Crescenta Valley Water Department. Children?s imaginations came alive as they crawled into the pilot?s seat of Air Six helicopter, got behind the wheel of a patrol vehicle and climbed onto an antique fire engine.

After 24 years and more than 10,000 hours spent at the Crescenta Valley Sheriff's Station, Ginger Hunnicutt isn't surprised by much - certainly not by receiving the station's Volunteer of the Year Award. Hunnicutt, 84, won the award Wednesday for the third time. 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.
