Turning 18 is an important milestone and combined with the excitement of college preparations, it can be a time of mixed emotions for most any young person at this time of year. However, for three La Cañada High School students there’s a bit more than typical amount of jitters setting in as they consider leaving home and their childhood friends. This week’s Valley Sun All-Stars — the Stathatos triplets Suzanne, Dan, and Sean — have shared toys, music, studies and even friends in the past almost 18 years since they were born, each one-minute apart, on March 26, 1991 at Pasadena’s Huntington Hospital.

Valley Sun readers get a triple treat this week. Although the newspaper normally pays weekly homage to one local youth who has shown they provide a significant contribution to the community, this week St. Bede the Venerable Catholic School vice principal and eighth-grade teacher Barbara Kuhl nominated three youths she considers to be “great young men.” Fraternal triplets Adam, Brett and Chad Rahtz, all 14-year-old eighth-graders at...

Congratulations to Denise Hovland, who grew up in La Cañada and today lives in Montrose, for her recent nomination as Volunteer of the Year at the Pasadena Court Self-Help center. Denise gave up a career to stay at home to raise her son and assist her husband with his own business. While raising her son she went back to school and obtained a degree in psychology and then obtained a certification as a paralegal. I know it is hard to reenter the workforce after so many years. I am proud of her. Her extra little effort to help someone out has made a world of difference to them.

On a recent Saturday morning, six Boy Scouts from St. George's Troop 502 arrived at the LCF Tournament of Roses float site on Hampton Road ready for four hours of whatever work might be assigned. Sharlyn French, head decorator for the LCF TRA, was waiting with several chores, the first of which was to trim the bushes that were encroaching on the decorating site. Patrol Leader Brandon Gardner, a junior at Crescenta Valley High School, explained that eight hours of community service are needed to earn a Citizenship in Community merit badge, one of the 25 merit badges required to become an Eagle Scout.

It?s Spirit Week at La Cañada High School 7/8, and the students are busy dressing up for the daily themes. On Monday, students showed up wearing their nightgowns and slippers for Pajama Day, and on Tuesday, they came in pairs ? even triplets ? for Twin Day. Yesterday, the theme was ?Disney,? and it was an opportunity for students to come to school dressed up as their favorite Disney characters. The theme for today is ?Holiday,? so the students are sure to be festive.

The Rahtz family is used to doing things in threes, but even so enjoyed a rare honor Sunday when triplets Adam, Brett and Chad Rahtz all earned Eagle Scout honors. The brothers, 18, who live in La Crescenta and recently graduated from St. Francis High School, earned their badges with different community projects. Chad Rahtz, who is headed to St. Lawrence University in New York, volunteered to help the La Cañada Flintridge Tournament of Roses Assn. with a storage problem. Brett Rahtz, born with his brothers at Huntington Memorial Hospital in Pasadena, did some demolition and construction at the La Cañada Flintridge Community Center as his Eagle Scout project, and is heading to Chico State University.

Two years of political wrangling will come to an end Tuesday, assuming contested poll tabulations don’t prolong the presidential election in the same painful way they did eight years ago. I don’t know about you, but I cannot wait for the unrelenting rhetoric to stop. And I’m especially unimpressed, frankly, with the party I registered with at the tender age of 19, when I enthusiastically cast my first presidential vote for Richard M. Nixon’s second term.

Let it never be said there?s a shortage of creativity in these foothills. A suggestion in last week?s column that we enjoy a little writing contest sparked some clever entries that entertained our newsroom. In case you missed our contest subject, a brief recap: Late on the morning of Tuesday, July 15, one of our reporters walking into our parking lot came across a small paper plate containing three apparently freshly-frosted cupcakes (covered in patriotic red, white & blue) and an unclipped cigar that appeared to have been carefully placed in a landscaped border otherwise filled with olive trees and ivy. How it might have arrived was a mystery to all of us. Sensing an opportunity to help me fill this space with other people?
