Because water quality will be a defining issue of my generation, I focused my Girl Scout Gold Award project on the water quality of the stream stretching from Cherry Canyon to Hahamongna Park. As a Girl Scout in Troop 989, I tested for six different pollutants and spent many days throughout the year slogging out debris in this stream It’s hard to imagine that in our beautiful La Cañada foothills, trash and other pollutants lurk in the streams. The trash that people have carelessly tossed aside shares the same water as ducks, frog, fish and a rich variety of other species.

Dr. Armand Dorian prefers to work in the Emergency Room at Verdugo Hills Hospital because he likes living on full adrenaline. Millions of television viewers will have the opportunity to watch Dorian reenact four of his adrenaline-inducing emergency room cases on this season's episodes of "Untold Stories of the ER," which airs Monday nights at 9 p.m. on The Learning Channel. "They routinely e-mail ER physicians for story ideas, looking for new show material," Dorian said. "One night there was a really sad case, and I was really upset and frustrated afterwards so I sat down that night and wrote the story and sent it in."

Despite the allure of Audrey Hepburn wearing a Coco Chanel little black dress, a simplistic world where everything is in black and white doesn’t excite me. In a way, I see everything in shades of maroon and gray. Those are the colors of my alma mater, McMaster University in Canada, where I first learned about the never-ending complexities of the behavior of everyday matter when studied at the atomic level. In other words, reality chemistry. For instance, stratospheric ozone is said to be “good” because it absorbs a lot of the sun’s ultraviolet radiation that can quickly burn fair skin.

Forty days and 40 nights—that’s what we set aside to create a feeling of optimum health and beauty in my Wellness Boot Camp. It’s a chance to reinvent your lifestyle to create a disease-resistant body that looks and feels better than ever. My campers often ask me why I don’t recommend vitamins as part of such a comprehensive program. Instead, we focus on “super foods” to allow the body to thrive. Just as there are many reasons why I prefer to nourish the body with food rather than vitamins, there are also many cases where taking vitamins is appropriate.

The day was perfect. The weather was perfect. And the atmosphere was perfect to plant a tree in Mayors' Discovery Park on April 25, when the city of La Cañada Flintridge celebrated Arbor Day. Under the warm sun, 13 community leaders with shovels at hand tossed soil onto the newly planted sapling. "It's a little crooked right now," said Mayor David Spence, looking at the tree that was tilting slightly to his right. "It's a great tree," he continued. "And we will make sure we continue to be a Tree City."
