The La Cañada Elementary School Lions had the holiday spirit and thoughts of others at the monthly spirit rally. Principal Ivette Ellis welcomed the parents and students and congratulated the students selected for December's "Pause for Praise" pins.

La Cañada Elementary School's Lions proudly showed their colors and caring spirits last Thursday, the final day of the fall semester and their first spirit rally of the new year. Looking like a dark blue sea, wearing their LCE sweatshirts, they clapped with enthusiasm as they were welcomed by members of the student council and sang the school song. The Lions' growls turned into thundering applause, as Ed Moulton of the Kiwanis Noon Club presented the Terrific Kids awards to Lucas Matthews from Mr. Berger's class and Erica Tavera from Ms. Kubilarrsik's class.

This season was developing into a Cinderella finish for La Cañada baseball, but Oaks Christian put a premature ending to it last week. The Lions defeated the Spartans, 11-4, on May 23 in the second round of the CIF Southern Section Division V playoffs to accomplish two things -- to eliminate La Cañada from post season play and to end its winning streak at nine games. The Spartans, who came in second in the Rio Hondo League (11-4) behind Monrovia, finished 14-6 overall. Oaks Christian scored a run in the bottom of the second inning and four more runs in the third inning to lead 5-0 before La Cañada managed two runs in the fourth.

There aren’t enough heartbreak songs in the world to describe just how hard it was on the La Cañada boys’ water polo team to lose to JSerra in the CIF quarterfinals as they did in the twilight of Saturday evening. With five seconds left on the clock in the second half of overtime, JSerra stole the ball and scored to tie the game, 11-11, and force a sudden death overtime. The Lions scored immediately on their first possession in sudden death. “It’s one of those things where the ball could’ve rolled to the left or the right,” Spartans’ Head Coach German Lopez said.

The La Cañada-AM Kiwanians were treated to a very entertaining talk about mountain lions by Christa Kermade, a member of the Mountain Lion Foundation. This national, non-profit organization is dedicated to the protection and preservation of mountain lions and their habitat. With the severe drought in Southern California these animals, which are by nature shy, are now more frequently found closer to suburbs in search of water. They require a minimum of three gallons of water a day. Kermade also explained that if you are suddenly confronted by one of these lions, do not panic but make eye contact.

What happens if you covered your arm with a bag of Crisco oil, and stuck it into a bucket filled with ice? You would feel nothing, like a sea lion in the cooler waters of the North Pacific. Do you think you can get yourself out of an alligator?s mouth? Probably not, because at 3,500 pounds, the force of its bite is equivalent to that of a car landing on top of you. Those are some of the things that Glendale resident Anne Beckner learned while in preparation for the LA Zoo?s special event, World Music Night, Tuesday evening, which focused on animals from all over the world.

Joe Puglia fears the U.S. lion has lost its roar rather than the trepidation felt by Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto, who allegedly said he regretted awakening a sleeping giant and filling him with a terrible resolve (“ Seeking clarity in complex times ,” Thoughts from Dr. Joe, Sept. 30). Although the admiral had lived in pre-war America and knew our industrial capacity, the famous “sleeping” quote likely was made up by the screen writer of the 1970 movie “Tora Tora Tora.” I'm also not sure that the lesson of the attacks on U.S. facilities is that such behavior is risk-free.

Wow! Most of us made it home safely, even though “Carmageddon” threatened to bring us to a standstill. At least the various media outlets gave us enough warning that we might want to experience an “at-home mini-vacation.” With the shutdown of the 405 Freeway for an entire weekend, traveling to the west side of the greater Los Angeles basin was absolutely verboten - unless one was to hire a private helicopter to get them there. Now, if somebody wanted to travel from Burbank to Long Beach (avoiding having to depart or land at LAX on that crunch weekend)

What appears to be a dire situation inspired several locals to consider packing weaponry and taking to the trails above La Cañada after Monday night’s City Council meeting, where residents and officials discussed the dastardly deeds of a predator in our midst. The council also was pushed to take a proactive role in public education, as well as in finding a way to rid the community of the wild visitor. Mountain lions and coyotes were at the center of much of the night’s discussion — and one mountain lion in particular, who has preyed on several area pets and terrified dozens of parents and pet owners.

The ground game was so dominant that Rebel quarterback Gus Herrera did not attempt his first pass until late in the first quarter. Three running backs combined for 443 yards and 49 carries in Saturday afternoon’s Prep League match up between Pasadena Poly and Flintridge Prep at Babcock Field. It was Blake Edwards, the Poly’s sophomore tailback, who rumbled through the Prep defensive line and carried the Panthers (3-2, 1-0 in league) on his back en route to 222 rushing yards on 27 carries and the victory, 28-14.
