Already famous for being home of JPL, having incredibly high test scores and a lack of sports playing fields, La Cañada has added another feather in its cap with the new discovery of rock migration. The incredible observation was made last month by a group of Frisbee players while playing Frisbee golf in Hahamonga Park. Hahamonga, by the way, is an Indian word that means "the joke is on you." The young men were finishing up their game when two of them noticed the line of rocks move ever so slightly.

Charisma drips from the stage like sweat the minute Detroit's longhaired son comes on stage. Until the house lights came on, Kid Rock worked the crowd at Universal Studios Gibson Amphitheatre April 27 like the "Devil Without a Cause" he claims to be, causing young and old fans of classic rock and hip hop alike to raise their glasses and voices. Known for his over-the-top personae, this amazing performer mixes southern rock with hip hop and throws in a little country music for good measure.

Be in A Band is the motto and name of a new business started by Jon Siebels, founding member of the hit rock group Eve 6. The La Crescenta band sold more than 3 million albums during their tenure with RCA Records. Jon and his two business partners have teamed up to help other musicians experience what it is like to play in a band. "For me, playing in a band is so much more fulfilling than playing guitar by myself," Jon said. "I have had so many awesome experiences playing in bands and I have enjoyed showing other kids and adults how to get started."

La Cañada Unified School District Governing Board meetings are, for the most part, emotionless. Facts and figures concerning everything from budgets to parcel taxes are discussed in seemingly endless PowerPoint presentations. But for a few moments during public communication at Tuesday’s meeting, emotion, loyalty and solidarity guided the night. “On May 30, our classrooms were emptied for our spirit rally where the sixth graders were being honored,” began Pam Daniger, a kindergarten teacher at La Cañada Elementary for 13 years.

They look like a band, but they look like a band that would play music much younger than they do. The five sunglass-sporting 20-year-olds that make up The Heist play strictly classic rock, nothing newer, and they play it well. As lead guitarist Brendan McGrath said, “We’re up and coming early to mid 20-year-olds and loving playing music that’s about 40 years older than us.” The cover band, which took their name from the fact that they “steal songs,” McGrath said, will be playing Saturday, Aug. 9, at the 47th annual Watermelon Festival in Sunland Park, 8651 Foothill Blvd.

 To underscore the Flintridge Prep football team's stagnant offense and barely there defense, it can be noted that Rio Hondo Prep running back Charles Quintero outgained the Rebels' entire team by 40 yards. It can also be noted that the Rebels gave up seven sacks and turned the ball over six times, including two interceptions in the first quarter that saw the Kares jump out to a two-touchdown advantage. Simply put, Saturday night's Prep League contest between Flintridge Prep and the defending Prep League champion, Rio Hondo Prep, was a forgettable one for the former, ending in a 40-0 loss at La Cañada High.

EAGLE ROCK - A lot has to go wrong for a team to not only get shut out, but to lose by five touchdowns. For the La Cañada High football team, a lot went wrong against host Eagle Rock on Friday. The Spartans committed three turnovers, had 120 yards in penalties, missed numerous tackles and gave up too many big plays in a 35-0 nonleague defeat. “I could make a hundred excuses,” La Cañada Coach James Sims said. “They just beat our butt.” A microcosm of the evening's mishaps could be cited in consecutive plays in the first quarter.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE - When the apex of Friday evening's La Cañada High football game involved members of the Spartans junior varsity team, needless to say, there weren't many highlights. And while those Spartans junior varsity players outscored their opponents by seven points, the varsity had no answer for visiting Eagle Rock, which was methodical in nearly all facets in defeating La Cañada, 25-7, in nonleague action. “We're not executing on varsity. Our JV came in and our JV was against their varsity defense and scored on their first drive,” Spartans first-year Coach James Sims said.

Rick Metcalf, who co-owns the small resort located just an hour up Angeles Crest Highway from La Cañada Flintridge, said that while he hopes to be able to open the slopes this year, so far it's not looking good, with only inches on the mountain so far.

Before the skies opened up a week ago, Caltrans was very close to completing repairs needed to open Angeles Crest Highway, which has been closed up to Mt. Wilson Road since January due to roadway washouts and other post-Station-fire storm damage. Officials hadn't announced an opening date, warning that wet weather could stall completion of paving efforts planned for Friday and Saturday at two spots — one approximately a mile north of the Angeles National Forest 's entrance from La Cañada Flintridge, the other approximately eight miles into the forest and three miles east of the Angeles Forest Highway junction, spokesman Patrick Chandler said.
