It wasn't a strong adversary on the field that shut down the La Cañada Gladiators program for the remainder of the season, it was one off the field. Gang problems forced the Duarte Hawks and Pasadena Panthers last week to cancel the rest of their season in the San Gabriel Valley Junior All-American Football Conference. In support of those two teams, league officials decided to cancel the remainder of the season, which involved three playoff games, for the other 26 teams in the league, which included the Gladiators.

Recently I received a call from Terese Miller, the outdoor program director for the Mount Wilson Vista Girl Scout Council. “Dr. Joe,” she said, “Would you do security for the upcoming Girl Scout Jamboree at Glen Helen Park?” I’ve always been an experience junkie, so jumping off the abyss seemed natural to me. Rarely have I taken that leap simply to satiate the unquenchable pursuit of adrenaline. Instead, I am driven by novelty, which is much increased by the simple pursuit of its gratification.

LOS ANGELES — With the crowd roaring inside what resembled an airport hangar, Anthony Cost went to the free-throw line in search of putting the finishing touches on a Harbor League championship for the Renaissance Academy basketball team.

What is so sacred about Social Security? As an investment vehicle it is a titanic failure. If it were a business, it would have been dissolved years ago, and the people in charge locked up for life. It is the fraud of all frauds. A gigantic pyramid scheme where those who got in early will reap the benefits, those who got in later are pleading, hustling and threatening others to get in so that they can move up and those getting in at the bottom left with their hands out and pockets empty.

In light of the attempted Christmas Day terrorist bombing, the United States government has imposed additional scrutiny on people traveling from 14 countries considered “security risks” — 13 of which are Muslim countries. Arsalan Iftikhar, legal fellow for the Institute for Social Policy and Understanding calls this a “clear use of ethnic, racial and religious profiling.” What do you think? Do you agree or disagree with Iftikhar? And if this is racial profiling, does it achieve greater security in the long term for our country?

LA CAÑADA - Faced with an eight-point deficit late in the third quarter, the San Marino High girls' basketball team turned to its two seniors, Leigh Kunitake and Felita Salim, Thursday at La Cañada High. When the Titans battled all the way back to take the lead early in the fourth, the Spartans not shockingly looked to junior Courtney Chen on senior night. The point guard finished with a team-high 16 points, eight rebounds, three steals and scored all six of La Cañada's final points and all but four of its 13 fourth-quarter points to secure a 48-41 victory.

TEMPLE CITY — With the decision well in hand by halftime, La Cañada High boys' water polo Coach Devon Borisoff gave the Spartans another game within the game with Temple City to win. In the driver's seat with a nine-goal lead, the first-year Spartans coach said he didn't want the Rams scoring two goals the rest of the way. La Cañada couldn't meet Borisoff's goal, but still impressed with a 20-5 victory at Temple City Thursday. "I try to give them little goals like that otherwise we're up by 15 goals and they can lose focus pretty easily,' said Borisoff, whose team improved to 9-6, 2-0 in league.
