This year the California Department of Education is also focusing on staph infections, especially methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus . ?This is [focused on] because it is resistant to antibiotic treatment,? said Evy Hamm, La Cañada Unified School District?s nurse.

Richard Brookhiser, in his book, “Founding Father: Rediscovering George Washington,” wrote, “All modern manners in the western world were originally aristocratic. Courtesy meant behavior appropriate to a court; chivalry comes from chevalier — a knight.” At the age of 16, George Washington was inspired by a book, “110 Rules of Civility and Decent Behavior in Company and Conversation.” This book was written in 1595 by French Jesuits, and then translated into English in 1640.

Valley View by Fereva Many (many) years ago when shopping at a Navy or Army discount outlet was cool (Navy had the best bell bottoms, obviously) (No, NOT that "Old Navy" -but as usual, I digress-) I bought a pair of men's size five, black rubber cement work boots. Knee-high, and actually pretty cool looking. A man's size five translates into a woman's size seven, and how many guys do you know with feet that dinky? Technically, I wore a size six in women's and had to wear two thick tube socks to fill the boots.

"We moved here for the schools," is our local mantra. My daughter is a graduate of Paradise Canyon Elementary and La Canada High, now in her junior year at Berkeley — so L.C. Unified is doing many things right, in between various goofs. Speaking of goofs, yes, we do need a separate middle school — and brava to Karen Mathison and Faye Therrien for standing up (among others) to say so. Sigh. Meanwhile, my education was entirely different from that of my daughter's.

You've made it through the holidays, through excessive sugar and rich food, the stress of parking, shopping and spending. Then there's the office parties, drinking, more drinking, more spending, not enough time to exercise and…all of the above brings us to a lack of quality sleep. What does all this mean to your body? The short answer is that your immune system has taken a hit. Whether or not you have suffered a cold or flu, it's time to give something back to the body that has worked so hard to protect you.
