The first two weeks of training camp for some members of the 2006 La Canada High varsity water polo team won't be held at the home pool this year. Nor will the team be using a pool in an adjacent community a few miles away. When the players jump into the pool, it will be one several thousands of miles away in an Eastern European city. As they did last season, some Spartans will spend their two-week training camp learning how to play water polo from experienced instructors in Eger, Hungary from Aug. 15 through Aug. 20 and in Budapest, Hungary from Aug. 21 through Aug. 26. Training camp for the rest of the team will begin one week later, Aug. 21, at the LCHS Pool.

Valley Sun: How would you improve traffic flow in the downtown area? Would you support installing one or more parking structures in the area?
