The Golden Gate loomed and appeared beautiful in the early morning sun. Her immensity absorbed all light as she floated quietly, standing motionless between two opposing shores. She was just there, patiently waiting for the throngs of Girl Scouts to cross and ‘Bridge’ to another dimension, toward another reality. In Girl Scout lore Bridging is synonymous to a scout’s transition from one level of scouting to the next. For 28 years, the Girls Scouts of Northern California have hosted a remarkable event that honors the transition of scouts moving from Junior to Cadet.

I think that Mr. Tanabe must be waiting for his huge vote of thanks from the fine people of La Cañada for pointing out that our dedicated law enforcement officers are certainly not qualified to provide the general public with advice and recommendations based on their years of experience and COMMON SENSE in dealing with all matters of public safety and concern. Mr. Tanabe apparently feels that HE is more qualified to tell the good citizens of this community that they are better off NOT listening to such professionals and should be more inclined to follow his teachings - based on years of personal experience, I am sure.

Valley View by Fereva To tell the truth, I admired their initiative and might have joined them, had I stood 6-feet-plus and been oh, yes - male. At approximately 1 a.m. on Tuesday last, the sound of an intermittently echoing thump, thump, thump! woke me from a groggy sleep. It took some time to realize that the sound was increasingly persistant, and still further time to identify it: Challenging guy voices + thump, thump, thump coming from the street = Yup, bball at (now nearly)

Our La Cañada public school district allows its employees - teachers - to teach classes at other non-LCUSD schools during the summer, and tutor students when not enrolled in their classes. These classes are sometimes ones that are offered at LCUSD, though not necessarily in the summer. However, summer school courses can be a full substitute for regular school-year courses. The school board, and the community, has never had an issue with this because it is legal and allowed under policy, and it has helped many students over the years.

Drilling began Tuesday morning in Alhambra for the California State Department of Transportation’s State Route 710 Tunnel Technical Study Geotechnical Exploration Program. The drilling will continue now through May in Alhambra, Los Angeles, South Pasadena and Pasadena. This only months after voters passed Measure R, the half-cent sales tax measure, which is expected to fund about $780,000 of the about $3 billion tunnel. According to Douglas Failing, director of Caltrans’ district No. 7, additional private funding also is available for the project.

In a continuing effort to highlight traffic safety around schools, Crescenta Valley Sheriff traffic Sergeant Mark Slater joined Palm Crest Elementary PTA members in an early morning meeting on Wednesday. The PTA has been banging the safety drum for a long time. But a recent accident involving a child crossing the street in a non-designated drop-off area has spurred them to step up the education of parents and kids on traffic safety. PTA members shared stories of traffic incidents that they had witnessed, from students running across the street in front of traffic to illegal U-turns made by parents.

There’s a couple of million reasons why I admire my daughter, Rachel Torres. She is witty, wise and kind-hearted, but her volunteer work for WriteGirl is at the top of the list. WriteGirl is a Los Angeles-based creative writing and mentoring program that pairs professional women writers with teen girls for weekly one-on-one mentoring and monthly creative writing workshops. The idea is simple, yet effective. The teens generally start the program by 9th grade. Many of the girls are considered to be “at risk” due to their economic and social settings; despite this, there is a one hundred percent college matriculation rate for girls who complete the program.
