La Cañada is a precious jewel among the very ordinary and common cities that surround us. Why? For two reasons. Because of our school system and because of the uncongested “small town” atmosphere and our lovely single family neighborhoods. Building Section 8 affordable housing would be the “camel's nose under the tent.” It would only lead to dragging La Cañada down to the malaise of a city of jam-packed apartments and transient residents. To those bureaucrats who would tell us that it's required by law I would say, like Mr. Bumble in Dickens' “Oliver Twist”: “If the law supposes that, then the law is an ass.” And to those who would say we “owe it” to the lesser advantaged, well, there's always Tujunga.

Last Friday's sizzling temperatures did not affect the spirit of the La Canada Elementary School's proud Lions. In fact, they just roared louder at their final spirit rally. Following Mrs. Ellis' welcome, student council member Joe Zarefsky led the student body in the Flag Salute, followed by Ben Golombek and Haley Johnson leading the school song. Mrs. Ellis presented this month's Paws for Praise awards to two students from each grade, for them taking the initiative to do something helpful for a fellow student or staff member.

Whooooo's responsible for your child's education? Nope, it ain't the school. One down and one to go! Try again! Nope, it ain't the teachers either. Give up? Here's a hint: " Ne te quaesiveris extra " (Do not seek outside yourself). It's from Emerson ... Ralph Waldo ... from his essay "Self Reliance"! "Yepper Jepper" (yes), you got it! We are. That's right. We're responsible for our child's education. I learned a long time ago from my shinning star, Sister Mary Delores that the more responsibility one maintains for their success the more success they will have.
