Good news, bad news, we print it As I mentioned in a previous column, our Valley Sun intern, Leticia Cheng, set up a display of her work when the La Cañada High School Institutes for the 21st Century held its showcase on a Thursday afternoon late last month.

She was poised as she easily engaged in conversations with people of all ages, answering their questions and offering them copies of the paper and our goofy little souvenir Valley Sun antenna balls to take with them.
