The artist’s figurative gentleman jazz series is on display at Penelope’s Cafe in La Cañada. The 48-year-old Mission Viejo resident fell back into painting more frequently as his children grew up. “I’ve been painting since I was young,” he said. “It’s been a lifetime thing.

If you have attended a school board or City Council meeting in the past year, you've probably seen at least one recent high school graduate in the audience, absorbing policy changes and city codes. It's not unusual for La Cañada Flintridge students to be active in the community; many get involved in several organizations and go on to top-tier colleges. But this year, a few have chosen to stay at home while attending a community college or returned home after graduating from a four-year college and are actively involved in civic affairs.

The news is filled with stories of young people performing record-breaking feats of athleticism, from Zac Sunderland and Jessica Watson, two teens who recently sailed solo around the world, to Jordan Romero, 13, who this year became the youngest person ever to summit Mount Everest. Now a boy from Nepal, 9-year-old Tseten Dorje, will attempt to break that record by climbing the world's highest peak. Some argue that these adventures should only be reserved for adults; that kids are in no physical condition to undertake such feats, feats that could take a severe toll on their young bodies (and are usually backed up by ambitious parents)
