As soon as I read about him, I called my friend Denise Hovland, from the Thursday Club. “Denise,” I said, “did you know that a guy from La Cañada went down with the USS Scorpion?” The USS Scorpion was a fast attack nuclear submarine which was “declared lost” in June 1968. Aboard the ship were 99 crewmen. Among them was Navy Lt. John Charles Sweet, a 1964 graduate of the United States Naval Academy and the son of two Lockheed employees.

The La Cañada High School class of 1966 held a three day 40th reunion late last month. The class of 1966 was the first class to go from kindergarten to 12th grade without going to John Muir in Pasadena while the LCHS facility was being built. This is an unusually close class that bonded in kindergarten in 1954 at the four elementary schools: Oak Grove, Paradise Canyon, La Cañada Elementary and Palm Crest. The bonding continued when all students joined together in 7th grade at the La Cañada Jr. High, then began LCHS in 10th grade.
