LA CRESCENTA ? Fire officials Thursday announced plans for an Aug. 1 evacuation drill for residents in the Briggs Terrace area of La Crescenta in response to a spate of fires in the Angeles National Forest. The drill and proceeding public fire safety meeting were part of a report to the Crescenta Valley Town Council Thursday night in which officials said years of drought and dry vegetation, combined with numerous fires in the surrounding mountains, have brought fire season to the forefront early this summer.

Members of the Crescenta Valley High School graduating class of 2007 walked toward Stengel Field, took their seats and eagerly waited to receive their diplomas during the school's commencement ceremony on Wednesday. "It's surreal and I can't believe it's over," said graduate Anna Benjamin, 17. "My high school years were the best years for me."

When Lisa Janacua, an office manager and assistant music librarian for Walt Disney Pictures in Burbank, volunteered for the California Army National Guard in 2003, she knew Iraq might be in her future. Janacua, the daughter of a Marine, was bitten by an urge to serve, but she would have preferred to do so on U.S. soil. "Most of us don't want to go," she said. Janacua's three daughters — who range in age from 12 to 18 — didn't want their mother to leave their Hermosa Avenue home in Montrose for the place they know only as a distant land of improvised explosive devices.

48 HOURS "Why you..." Those are the most dreaded words in Three Stooges movies because they were always followed by Moe conking either Larry, Curly or Shemp on the head or jabbing two fingers in their eyes. While that kind of slapstick comedy is not for everyone, it's hard not to love these four masters of madcap mania. I used to watch them on TV after school each day, and I must admit, it kept my brother and me from fighting, if only for that half-hour.

When Crescenta Valley High’s girls’ soccer team found itself 80 minutes from winning the Pacific League title, senior standout Tori Baldridge was there at the center of the field — right where a captain is supposed to be. But she was dressed in street clothes rather than a uniform, crutches under each arm, a slipper on one foot and a cast on another rather than cleats. Her playing days at Crescenta Valley ended by an unfortunate injury, her days as a Falcon were nevertheless far from over.
