It is an honor to serve on the La Cañada Unified School District Governing Board. The thrills of being a part of La Cañada Unified School District come from seeing LCUSD students enjoying the learning process. The best ever is when our LCUSD students cooperate and help each other to achieve success beyond their individual expectations. This happens daily and across grade levels. Recently, Team 3399, the Golden Circuit Breakers (FLL Robotic Club) from La Cañada Elementary School, mentored by Team 2429, the La Cañada Engineering Club, scored fourth at the San Diego Qualifying Tournament.

As the space shuttle Endeavour soared over La Cañada Flintridge on Friday afternoon, Palm Crest Elementary School sixth-grader Micah Smyth saw more than an end of an era for NASA. He also saw what he hopes will be his future. Micah, 11, plans to be an aerospace engineer, and so two days after Endeavour made its last flight, he and 40 other students abandoned the Sunday sunshine for a meeting of the La Cañada Engineering Club. Inside the former wood shop at La Cañada High School, students from elementary school to high school tinkered with robots placed on surfaces similar to pool tables.

Despite this year’s challenging economy, Legoland California continues to post excellent numbers for both Legoland and their new Sea Life Aquarium. While Legoland won’t give out numbers specific to this park, their parent company, Merlin Entertainment Group, is reporting 28% annual growth in visitors for its 57 attractions. The numbers no doubt have been bolstered by the addition of the Sea Life Aquarium with its 36 displays enclosed in a 36,000-square-foot, two-story building.

From the outside, room 604 looks like any other classroom on the La Cañada High School campus. But inside, the former wood shop room is a bustling workshop filled with wires, gadgets, computers and all the necessary ingredients required to animate a robot. This is the humble home of the LCHS Engineering Club, which in its seven-year existence, has transformed the lives of students whose interests in building, computers and robotics had previously lain dormant, undiscovered and untapped.

If you’re going to name a town for its greatest asset, the town fathers of Oceanside seem to have got that one right. Today more city than town, Oceanside is dressing up the city’s three and a half miles of wide, sandy beaches by bringing in new waterfront hotels, trendy restaurants and expensive homes and condos that all combine to beckon tourists from literally around the world. The old rap on Oceanside, home to Camp Pendleton, was that it was a military town and not the place to invest millions in your new beachfront home.

The benefits of massage took on a new dimension this month as La Cañada massage therapist Susan Young found a way to make her healing hands help a family on the other side of the globe.

Young said she decided to purchase the cow for Costazia Mahigigi and her family in an effort to not only benefit the family, but in order to inspire others in her own community to think of others as the holiday season approaches.

Nothing makes La Cañada High School senior Hima Hassenruck-Gudipati quite as happy as a 120-pound robot or riding inside a 16-foot solar-powered boat. Hassenruck-Gudipati is president of the La Cañada High School Engineering Club who used her skills and enthusiasm for engineering this past weekend at the Solar Cup, a seven-month engineering program for more than 800 high school students in Southern California.
