Kent Desormeaux, a La Cañada Flintridge resident and world-class jockey, riding the horse Imperialism, worked his way through a track traffic jam to come in third at last Saturday's 130th Kentucky Derby held at Churchill Downs in Louisville. "Imperialism ran well at the Derby. We had to weave our way through the field and we got stuck back in the pack longer than I had hoped. I would have liked to have done better," Desormeaux said. Desormeaux, a two-time Derby winner, is looking forward to future rides aboard Imperialism.

The blows came one after another. First doctors told Sonia Desormeaux that her son, Jacob, had serious kidney problems. Then they determined he was profoundly deaf and had a severe balance disorder that delayed his ability to walk. There were frequent bumps and falls — Jacob was always black and blue with bruises. His parents constructed a helmet in order to protect his head. "When he was a baby I would literally walk around with both arms around him, shielding him from everything," Sonia said.

Eleven-year old Jacob Desormeaux’s first trip to the Staples Center for a Los Angeles Clippers game last week was unlike anything most people get to experience at a basketball game. Jacob and 92 of his closest friends attended the Clippers and Minnesota Timberwolves game for free on Jan. 19. Eye on Jacob, a non-profit organization based in La Cañada, received 100 free tickets, along with several other local non-profits for the game, from Clippers owner Donald Sterling. Jacob got to go down on the court after the game and shake hands with Sterling, but opted not to tell him he didn’t know there was another basketball team in Los Angeles besides the Lakers.
