The bill, AB 575, just signed into law by the governor, would provide committees with the equivalent of 10 doctoral level fellows chosen and paid for by an elite research organization. Portantino said the bill ?offers a unique opportunity? for lawmakers to get the help without any budget commitment by the state.

Tuesday marked the sixth year since Americans watched in disbelief as passenger airplanes were used as weapons to fly into New York’s World Trade Center, the Pentagon and crash in a Pennsylvania field, on Sept. 11, 2001. The realization slowly came that terrorists piloted these planes, that thousands had died and nothing was ever going to be the same. Although that day wasengulfed in tragedy it was also a day that exemplified the true meaning of American hero. It was in honor of heroes that Los Angeles County firefighters and engineers from La Cañada Flintridge Station 82 and 19 joined together for a ceremony early Tuesday morning at Station 19 on Foothill Bouelvard.

Funeral services were held Tuesday at Mount Sinai Memorial Park for Rabbi Carole Meyers of La Cañada, the first female rabbi in Los Angeles to lead a congregation. Meyers, 50, died last Thursday after a two-month battle with bone cancer. She led Temple Sinai of Glendale for 15 years. Meyers became a rabbi at the age of 29, and was hired at a time when female rabbis were very uncommon. Most women in the rabbinate worked on college campuses, in social services, or as assistant rabbis.

Two basketball teams raced around the court - on wheels - at the Flintridge Prep gym Saturday, as the Rebels hosted the wheelchair basketball team from the Rancho Los Amigos rehabilitation center in Downey. Six athletes from Rancho Los Amigos were cheered on by a crowd of about 50, made up of parents as well as Flintridge athletes and teachers who took turns getting into wheelchairs and joining the game. For Mandy Artukovich Viole, who grew up in La Cañada and now lives in Glendale, it was a special chance to have her son Matthew, 14, compete within the community.
