I am very excited to be supporting Andrew “AJ” Blumenfeld for School Board. As a current student at La Cañada High School, I appreciate all the great teachers I have - teachers who inspire me to work hard and do my best. But my friends and I have compared notes. Like Andrew, we have found that not all teachers are the same. While one teacher might be going above and beyond to ensure the best, right down the hall - maybe even your next period - there's a teacher who can't (or won't)

Maybe it was an easier match earlier in the week, but the La Cañada girls? basketball team didn?t take it for granted. La Cañada girls? basketball played a great game against San Marino on Friday evening, beating the Titans 55-39. Though the game was tied after the first quarter, the Spartans came out firing on all cylanders in the second and took a 31-22 lead into the half. La Cañada outscored San Marino in the third and fourth quarters as well to take the game with ease.

The Mars rover Spirit has been stuck in sand for some 18 months, but that hasn't stopped JPL scientists from making new discoveries. Analysis of soil layers that the rover exposed while trying to break free of a Martian sand trap has turned up new evidence that liquid water once existed on the Red Planet. Just below the planet's dusty surface, water-soluble minerals were found layered below less-dissolvable minerals, leading the rover team to hypothesize that the water-soluble minerals were dissolved and then deposited by water percolating down from melting ice or snow.

I once read a story about a guy who had what he figured were pixies living in an old doll house in his barn. The first batch was tidy, piano playing, garbage cans (with lids) lined up neatly each week, house-proud little folk who paid their rent with good luck. Neat, slick, perfect good luck. If this guy was heading down the sidewalk and there was a banana peel any where in his vicinity, the street sweeper would happen upon it before he reached it. If a flower pot fell from an upper window it would miss him cleanly.

Two playoffs games against Long Beach area schools. Two overtime matches with a final score of 3-2. Twice the home team lost after holding leads of 1-0 and 2-1. Twice Jordan Bell saw the soccer ball land inside his box on an own goal. After senior forward Amir Moore scored the game-winning overtime goal in a 3-2 road playoff victory over Long Beach Jordan last Friday, the Knights (16-6-4) were on the losing end of a sudden death playoff match against Long Beach Millikan (27-3-2)

This particular business trip in December 2006 was to be my last of that year, but as it turned out, it could very well have been my last for a very long time. I had traveled the world as a commercial airplane marketing and sales director for cabin interior equipment for over 20 uneventful travel years. I was in Paris on this trip and had met with my airline customers, closing a very important company deal and handing out small Christmas gifts. I got back to my hotel that Friday afternoon exhausted.

TEMPLE CITY - It all came down to the luck of the draw and the La Cañada High girls' tennis team simply didn't have any in the preliminary rounds of the Rio Hondo League Individual Tournament at Live Oak Park in Temple City Wednesday. Of six first-round matches, which were played to eight-game pro sets like all of Wednesday's matches, the Spartans won five, but they had their work cut out for them in the second round. All of La Cañada's players had to face an opponent from the league-champion San Marino squad, which produced the league's title winners and runners-up in singles and doubles in 2011 and is expected to do so again this year.

Out-of-district families hoping to get their students into La Cañada public schools can leave their sleeping bags, ear warmers and jugs of hot cocoa at home. The La Cañada Unified School District on Monday announced the introduction of a lottery system that will mean certain categories of permit students will no longer be given priority. As a result, families will not be camping out for a weekend in front of the district office to get to the top of the list, as has been the practice in recent years.
