Do you remember the first book you ever read? I do! It was Mark Twain's "Tom Sawyer." I especially remember the part, when Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Fin set sail as pirates; floating their makeshift raft down the Mississippi looking for fame, fortune and adventure. I had to do the same! So?the Scanlon brothers and I spent days carrying old planks of wood to Van Courtland Park. We were to build a raft, sail down the Bronx River and find the open seas of the Hudson. I remember the day we pushed off. As we left the safe banks of terra firma heading for the south westerly current of the river, I looked back at shore and saw an image of myself that I would never see again.

Ten Years Ago The La Cañada school board learned that a survey of voters living within the boundaries of the La Cañada Unified School District showed that 73% of them would support a bond measure for facility upgrades on the local campuses. The consulting firm that conducted the survey recommended holding the bond election in March 2004 instead of holding it in November 2003, when it would be competing for attention with the special California gubernatorial recall election.

Eight-year-old Kathryn Fazzi mimicked panda noises perfectly as she recalled her experiences in China?s renowned Wolong Panda Reserve. ?The 1-year-old pandas played King of the Hill and one had difficulty going back up the hill,? she said. ?We put carrots in the centers of their mouths and they?d take the carrots out and hold them because pandas have a kind of thumb. They didn?t drop any of the food?just crumbs.? Nearly a year ago, La Cañadan resident Diane Fazzi returned home to a strange greeting: ?

Visit a Weird, Wild, & Wonderful world at the Aquarium of the Pacific starting. It is a world where you'll meet fish that can live out of the water, deadly denizens of the deep, an animal that has survived on the planet for 500 million years, and animals that change sex during their lives. New animal exhibits, interactive displays, a film, and an educational presentation, and a Passport Book with stamping stations are all part of the new program. Over millions of years, animals have had to adapt to survive in their changing environments and have taken on some amazing adaptations to cope with these changes.

The tide came in at Paradise Canyon Elementary School last week via the Octo-bus from the Cabrillo Marine Aquarium, bringing numerous sea creatures for the students to learn about. Chris Brodie and Crystal Gentle from the Marine Aquarium provided each grade with a presentation, where they learned about a lobster's exoskeleton and how they shed their shell when they grow out of it. The students knew a starfish can grow back another arm if broken off, but learned the location of the eyes and mouth of starfishes and how they expel their stomach outside of their body in order to eat. They knew a mussel clings to the rocks, did not know it had numerous rope-like legs that anchor them to the rocks.

I have a new home, for the summer. It is the Sea Cloud, a 360 foot, four-masted tall ship, built in 1931. She is the only sailing ship in the world that is a 5-star hotel. Yours truly is a deckhand, one of a crew of 61, spending these two and half months before my senior year along the Greek and Turkish coasts, even slipping through Istanbul to cross the Black Sea. Learning the way of life on the ship, breathing the wind that fills its sails and learning the ropes has been among the most enriching of adventures.

It's a climate puzzle that has vexed scientists for more than a decade and added fuel to the arguments of those who insist man-made global warming is a myth. Since just before the start of the 21st century, the Earth's average global surface temperature has failed to rise despite soaring levels of heat-trapping greenhouse gases and years of dire warnings from environmental advocates, the Los Angeles Times reported. Now, as scientists with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change gather in Sweden this week to approve portions of the IPCC's fifth assessment report, they are finding themselves pressured to explain this glaring discrepancy.

SAN PEDRO - From top to bottom, there doesn't appear to be an easy out throughout the La Cañada High softball team's lineup. That might spell doom for opponents waiting to face the Spartans over the next week. While the accolades are normally reserved for the top part of the lineup, the Spartans, who are the reigning CIF Southern Section Division V champions, have received major contributions from one through nine. If there's a key situation calling for the No. 9 hitter to get on and then steal a base or notch a clutch two-out hit with the bases loaded, they get it. It's simply a part of the process for the top-seeded Spartans, who rolled to a 7-0 road victory against Mary Star of the Sea on Thursday afternoon at the San Pedro Softball Complex.

SAN PEDRO - Striking out a career-high 23 batters in a Rio Hondo League contest won't soon be forgotten by Lauren Cox. Striking out 20 in a playoff game proved to be more satisfying for the La Cañada High softball pitcher. Cox did just that in leading her team a step closer to repeating as CIF Southern Section Division V champion, striking out 20 as she twirled a one-hit shutout in the Spartans' 7-0 quarterfinal win on Thursday against host Mary Star of the Sea at the San Pedro Softball Complex.

Last year, I wrote thoughts about Christopher Columbus. Through the Internet my thoughts sailed across the country, prompting numerous debates regarding his morality and his significance. Indulge me as I revisit his story. This time I'll delve deeper into the nature of the man. There was a time when the New World did not exist - at least not for Europeans. The sun set in the west at the far edge of an ocean where no man dared to venture, and beyond that, infinity - or so they thought.
