Part 2 It looked like Rocky Balboa against Apollo Creed; there was no contest. Counsel for the state was seasoned prosecutor David Vaughn, and then there was me. If you read me last week you may remember I was defending Vito Barone for violating the school snack policy at La Cañada Elementary. By mistake, Vito took a plate of Connie Cookies to his daughter’s class without going through Dora, the school nurse. If you’re not up on the story, read last week’s Thoughts from Dr. Joe. At the pre-trial hearing Mr. Vaughn appeared in a Giorgio Armani suit, carrying a Coach leather briefcase.

We would like to extend a big thank you to our local Penguin's, Sport Chalet and some very kind adults. Recently, our fourth-grade son was walking down Oakwood Avenue on a school field trip when he fell near Penguin's, scraping his knees quite deeply. A group of adults including Loretta Chicoine of Penguin's, a customer named Jay and parent volunteer Sungwon Ku took the time to patiently care for our son, using Penguin's first-aid kit and of course, some TLC. After our son was patched up, he and Mr. Ku walked as far as the Sport Chalet rental shop, where the bandages needed to be changed and a kind employee donated some.

The La Cañada High School PTAs e-mailed letters to school parents on March 17, informing them about the symptoms and treatments for pertussis. A bacterial infection, pertussis is spread through the air when people cough. Symptoms usually start out like a common cold, but get worse over one to two weeks.

Despite grim statistics released Friday by the California Department of Public Health that show a spike this year in flu-related deaths, local health officials say all seems to be well throughout the community and in the La Cañada schools. The state report said the number of confirmed flu-related deaths across California had risen to 202 so far, nearly double last year's total of 106. Area health figures confirm that Los Angeles County accounts for 33 of those fatalities. Officials in the Foothills say that those who do fall ill here are receiving immediate and appropriate treatment.

Canine contraband-detecting dogs will soon be walking the halls and classrooms of La Cañada High School. On April 18 all 7/8 and high school students attended an assembly where they met two trainers and one of the dogs from Interquest Detection Canines. The assemblies were staggered so all classes would be allowed to hear the presentation and pose questions to the trainers and LCHS Principal Damon Dragos. The dogs will be part of a pilot program that will continue through the end of this school year.
