I was so pleased to read thorough and responsible reporting recently on the LCUSD/SPAC/FIS/District Office situation. Through the public debate we have learned: New construction isn't always less expensive than renovation. In fact, because of building codes, it's quite possible that building a parking structure and school district office in the parking lot at LCHS would have been more expensive than renovating FIS. We also learned that the FIS remodel is not 90% over budget.

. The relocation of the La Cañada Unified School District offices to the FIS campus will leave the current district property at 5039 Palm Drive vacant. This property has been declared surplus and could be offered for sale. Although the land must first be offered to a public agency, such as the city of La Cañada Flintridge, and be a topic of public discussion, it could eventually be sold for private development. In a town where property values are so high because of the school system, the school district should strive to hold onto all of its irreplaceable real estate.

by Jacqueline Chen Many local residents regard Susan Boyd's name as synonymous with PTA, an impression borne out by the many school leadership roles she has assumed. These range from PTA president to organizing volunteers to stuff envelopes for the Back-to-School mailings parents receive at the end of each summer. She has given advice from topics as diverse as PTA procedure to telling volunteers to switch direction every half hour when stuffing envelopes to avoid back and hip pain.

The La Cañada Flintridge City Council has granted a permit to Dreamworks Studios to film on Foothill Boulevard next week. The permit request went to the council because it asked for activities in the early morning hours on April 5 and 6, not allowed under city rules. The film, "Blades of Glory," which stars Will Ferrell, Jon Heder and Amy Poehler, is the story of two ice skating rivals who team up. Filming is scheduled at a school district building at 4490 Cornishon Ave. beginning next Tuesday, with parking on Foothill, crew parking at the United Artists Theater lot and catering at the Church of the Lighted Window.

The Parks and Recreation Commission has decided not to open up two fields near Foothill Intermediate School for Sunday use, after protests from residents on Cornishon and other nearby streets. The request came from baseball coach Jeff Marderosian, who said the players from the La Cañada teams need practice time. He said his proposal was for Sunday afternoon use, from noon to 6 p.m., for 12 players and coaches. A city ordinance currently bans the use of the field on Sundays, and so City Council action would be needed to permit the change.

For the last several years, the La Cañada Unified School District Board of Governors has held its meetings in elementary and high school libraries and meeting rooms and empty classrooms. That's all going to change next month. The Jan. 17 meeting of the board will be held in the new board room at the controversial new district facilities at Foothill Intermediate School at Foothill Boulevard and Cornishon Avenue. The new district offices, whose $2,024,800 cost ran about $470,000 over the initial budget, will replace the inadequate current facilities, an aging converted summer home of the Bullock's department store family adjacent to Palm Crest Elementary School.
