He is 27 years old, stands fit and trim at 6'2'' and will return for a second tour of military duty in Iraq sometime this month. His name is Cpl. Michael T. Morton and he is a U.S. Marine. For me, the war in Iraq now has a face. I met Morton and members of his family last Saturday night during a surprise birthday party for his father, Marty Morton, who is director of Maintenance, Facilities and Operations for La Cañada Unified School District. The party in La Crescenta celebrated a dual purpose, as it was also a farewell send-off for Mike.

Joe Puglia It is inherent within the human dimension to make the world a better place. The writers and philosophers tell us that we enhance ourselves and live fuller and richer lives when we reach out to others attempting to make their plight better. John Donne in “Meditation XVll” asked us, “For whom the bell tolls?” His answer. . . “It tolls for thee.” All of us have the potential to bring the powers of light to an often cloudy world, and perhaps the most effective way to shed a nurturing light is through ‘grass roots’ initiatives which entail communities and organizations pitching in together to bring comfort to a burgeoning world.

Remember when summer break used to mean staying up late, sleeping in and kicking back? That is still a very big part of the exuberance of the end of the school year but for many La Canada students summer break was anything but a time to relax.

Then there were some who traveled to Africa or Tijuana while others worked as musical actors and theater technicians.
