ALHAMBRA — There couldn't have been a much better start to the football season than the one La Cañada High had at Alhambra's Moor Field on Friday night. Unfortunately for La Cañada, momentum didn't remain on its sideline long, as four Spartans' drives were derailed by fumbles and the Moors capitalized on seemingly all of La Cañada's mistakes in a 34-14 victory. The Spartans (0-1) started the game on fire, marching 80 yards down the field in three plays for a touchdown, as quarterback Matt Jones broke a 66-yard run to give La Cañada a 7-0 lead to start the game.

Health claim bill signed into law A bill by state Senator Jack Scott (D-Altadena) to impose a 10% penalty on late payment of long-term care health claims by insurers has been signed into law. “Recent published reports indicate that nearly one in four long-term care claims in California were denied in 2005,” Scott said. “This legislation would help to curb that by making sure that insurers pay in a timely manner or face penalties.” Scott has also won final approval and signature of SB 1393, his nursing education bill to require open enrollment of nursing students at community colleges and to allow some nursing programs to require course work beyond the bachelor’s degree.
