Q. A female friend of mine just had a heart attack. I thought heart attacks were rare in women. Can you tell me more? A female friend of mine just had a heart attack. I thought heart attacks were rare in women. Can you tell me more? Selma, La Crescenta ? That is a common misconception. Medical research has traditionally been focused on Caucasian men so our knowledge of the frequency of heart disease in other races and in women is not nearly as extensive. Men and women may differ in their experience of heart attack symptoms.

For centuries, scientists and philosophers researched why this ethereal center of love we call our heart, houses feelings and emotions as well as pumping blood through the entire cardiovascular system. After all, isn’t it just another organ like the others in your body? The human heart is a double pump. It receives blood low in oxygen from the body tissues and sends it to the lungs for a quick fix. It finely adjusts the rate of contraction and blood pressure, adjusts the carbon dioxide and miraculously, sends it all back to the tissues of the body with all levels balanced according to your body’s needs at that moment.

A small crowd assembled Tuesday night at City Hall to talk frankly about the stresses and difficulties today's teenagers face and what can be done to prevent depression, substance abuse and suicide. But while attendance was low, the conversation generated among the teens and adults who turned out was honest and bore much insight about how to improve the spirits and well-being of area youth. The panel discussion, sponsored by the La Cañada Flintridge Youth Council and co-sponsored by the Public Safety Commission and the Community Prevention Council, follows the March 1 death of Campbell Taylor, a La Cañada High School senior who committed suicide on campus.

RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA - Early as it was, the first two minutes of Saturday evening's CIF Southern Section Division 3-A semifinal at Santa Margarita High very much proved to be the deciding factor in the conclusion of the La Cañada girls' basketball team's season and the continuance of the host Eagles'. In the game's first 78 seconds, the Spartans were down by eight points and reigning All-Area Girls' Basketball Player Courtney Chen was on the bench with two quick fouls. Thus, despite a late, valiant charge by the Spartans, the early cushion was cushion enough, as second-seeded Santa Margarita, propelled by its full-court press, defeated third-seeded La Cañada, 69-57.

It?s back to the meeting room for La Cañada Flintridge?s City Council subcommittee on sewers. This after an independent elections consultant and La Cañada?s city clerk spent three days last week tabulating results of proposed sewer district No. 5?s recent survey. The survey was mailed to La Cañada?s 1,949 residents south of Foothill Boulevard (which makes up the proposed district) to determine if the city should authorize a $4.2 million design study for an about $91 million low-pressure sewer system.

As work nears completion on most of La Cañada Flintridge?s sewer districts and discussion continues as to whether or not residents of a proposed district No. 5 would support sewer hook up costs, another aspect of sewer talk ? a host of design errors and a questions of what looked to be a sewer scam ? surfaced recently in portions of district 3. But the problems that occurred in district No. 3, and apparently in district Nos. 1 and 2 as well aren?t expected to occur if district No. 5 opts to go with a low-pressure sewer system, according to a city official.

SOUTH PASADENA - Determined to learn from its mistakes, the La Canada High girls' basketball team reminded itself of them coming into Thursday's Rio Hondo League showdown at South Pasadena High. The Spartans did that by watching their painful 25-point loss to the Tigers on Jan. 23 before Thursday's night game, which would decide the league champion. “The girls said they were just fired up last night and knew what they had to do,” said La Cañada Coach Tamar Hill, whose team held off the home team for a 43-34 victory to win the league title.
