With a thunderous metal ping, senior and starting catcher Max Schaetzle sent a rocket of a home run into the clouded sky, over the left field fence to powerfully end a 14-run, two-inning streak that shot La Cañada past North Hollywood, 15-4, in the Southern California Invitational on Saturday. The North Hollywood victory followed their late-innings 5-4 win over LA Baptist on Friday, another SoCal Invitational game, and suddenly the Spartans are 2-0 to start the season. La Cañada flexed their muscles.

We want to write and tell you about Marisa Lupica, our fifteen-year-old next door neighbor and friend whom we tragically lost this weekend. Marisa was a golden girl and a force of nature. You could feel the shimmer of her intelligence and the mightiness of her heart when she came in the door, and she had a spirit beyond her years. Her love of life flowed to everyone who knew her by way of her penetrating eyes, her physical strength and beauty, and most of all her great laugh. She was a summery girl in all ways, the summer fairy of our cul-de-sac.

The La Cañada High boys' 7/8 played their season opener against host Clifton Middle School of Monrovia on March 2 and won 4-1. As each team took turns testing each other's defense, La Cañada's Brian Blumenfeld took matters into his own hands at the 12 minute mark. He pushed the ball through the midfield, then down the left side. One quick move later, Blumenfeld made a left-footed cross just over the outstretched gloves of the Clifton keeper and Matthew Cannata kicked the ball into the net for the Spartans' first score.

The rain that pounded the Southland on April 13 did not douse the high spirits of the guests who waded through the puddles to arrive at the 48th Pasadena Showcase House of Design. In fact, more than 200 guests in formal attire came to take a first glance at the grand La Cañada Flintridge mansion that was built in 1927 in a Spanish Colonial Revival style. I think this old house and its first owners, Margaret Kinkelin Robbins and her husband Hunter Savidge Robbins, would have been very excited to welcome these well-dressed guests to their beautiful home for a house-warming party.

Creating Rapport: People don't care until you care. Extend yourself and care first for others. Conversations: In order to stimulate conversations use Who? What? Where? When? Why? questions. Ask open-ended questions that evoke more than "yes" or "no." Maybe, ask "What do you think?" Listen with your heart and head. Share yourself using some responses from their statements. Encourage "verbal ping-pong" in which the conversation goes back and forth easily between both people.

Leadership and legacy are two words that come to mind when some La Cañada residents describe this week’s Valley Sun All-Star. Flintridge Preparatory School incoming senior Jeff Tobias is dedicated to doing more than the status quo and to making his community a better place to live. “Being a leader is just something I like to do. I like organizing things and I’d rather do that than just go with the flow. It’s good to have people look up to you,” Tobias said.

Two hundred and sixty middle- and high-school students flocked to JPL's campus Friday to compete in the 13th annual Invention Challenge. A total of 34 teams (19 student and 15 JPL teams) were challenged to create devices that would lift a ping-pong ball and hold it against a ceiling two meters (about 6.6 feet) above the ground. Sixteen local schools, including Crescenta Valley, Monrovia, South Pasadena and Temple City High Schools, competed, but the Magnolia Science Academy in Carson came out on top, fulfilling the objective in .20 of a second.
