Since the shooting on the Virginia Tech campus where 32 people, including students and instructors, were killed by a lone gunman many parents, teachers and administrators have been reexamining school campus locked down protocols. Before the Virginia Tech shooting, school resource officer at La Cañada High School Deputy Todd Sams and Crescenta Valley High School SRO Scott Shinagawa attended a seminar held by the U.S. Secret Service National Threat Assessment Center. "What we found was that there is no profile of a school shooter," Sams said "There is no way to profile someone who would do this, there was not one set pattern," Shinagawa said.

I was in a pickle. As I took my seat for dinner and stared at what appeared to be a delicious salad, I noticed that I had three forks. "Hmm," I thought, "which one do I use?" I defer questions of etiquette to Kaitzer, but she was chatting with fellow Hoover High School alums, Christina and Dean Oakley. I surely wasn't going to ask my go-to guy Mike Riley. Ah! I'll ask Lisa Durkin! She'll know. She's French. Last Saturday night La Cañada came together at the 16th annual LCF Educational Foundation Spring Gala at the Ritz-Carlton Huntington Hotel to raise money for the La Cañada Unified School District.
