Letters to the Editor Woman feels prey to teen driver Grandma run over by a reindeer? No, not a reindeer, but almost by a very young teenager driving his brand new, flashy, expensive, low-riding car with three of his friends aboard. After parking my car in a handicap parking space at Ralphs in La Cañada on Tuesday, Dec. 11, I checked to make sure there was no traffic approaching and got halfway across the narrow driveway when the “Game Player” put the pedal to the metal then slammed on his brakes 6 inches before hitting me. Of course, the whole car shook with laughter, as teenagers do when trying to scare someone.

Thoughts From Dr. Joe by Dr. Joe Puglia Some time ago, I received a phone call from a friend and neighbor regarding a series of incidents that happened on her street in La Cañada. It appears as though vandals, using fireworks, had exploded a number of mailboxes. Someone had even put a few shots through her picture window. By the way, this lady has two small children. This vandalism had continued over a series of weeks. My friend, in a rather concerned demeanor, asked that I write something in the Valley Sun about this incident.

In modern society, youth are generally known to consume themselves with mindless matter that is irrelevant to knowledge they can use later in life. Though that may be the stereotype for teenagers, times are changing fast, and more students are becoming involved in current events, politics and government. What were once the most boring issues the young mind could ponder, are now becoming fascinating discussion topics in casual conversations. One of the causes of this new interest among teens is the fact that teachers are incorporating these topics in their curriculum.

I had the lead role in the fifth-grade St. Patrick's Day play at Saint Frances of Rome School. But my career ended when I threw Thomas Thouey off the stage for saying something nasty about my momma. I could have been a Shakespearean actor, but I was banned from the stage and relegated to the stage crew. As a boy I had a passion for theater. I could create any fantasy and be anything as long as I could imagine it. Theatrics is a composite of every emotion, sound and gesture with a language that resonates life.

New laws will go into effect this year with goals to make the roads safer and drivers more responsible, according to a spokesperson from the Crescenta Valley Sheriff’s Station. “The biggest misconception [about the new laws] is that the cellphone law goes into effect on Jan. 1,” said Sgt. Mark Slater. “It begins on July 1, 2008.” The cellphone law Slater referred to prohibits minors under the age of 18 to drive while using a wireless telephone, including a hands-free device.

?New Moon? is every teenage girl?s dream: hot guys, epic romance, and a little danger. It sounds a bit corny when put like that; however, when masked behind the flowery prose in the novel, the story comes off as a heart-breaking tale of true, undying love. This is the problem with ?New Moon? as a movie: it is easy for those who haven?t read the book to mock it, and even fans ? like myself ? can?t help but crack a smile when images of the lead characters frolicking through a meadow flash across the screen.
