Having cut his teeth in the basketball hotbed of Orange County, Bill Boyd became a natural scorer and journeyed north. Boyd had starred for the Santa Ana Foothill High boys' basketball team through his junior year before his family uprooted to La Crescenta, where he joined a burgeoning Crescenta Valley program rife with talent with a towering presence leading into the 1970-71 season. La Crescenta resembled a small bedroom community just a jump shot away from bustling Los Angeles.

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.

PASADENA — Defense lawyers for two members of an Echo Park gang charged in the drive-by shooting death of a 16-year-old Glendale boy in 2004 spent most of Monday trying to discredit the testimony of a second boy shot in the incident.

In the ninth grade, I made the decision to get a special permit to attend Glendale High School,rather than Hoover High. It's a decision I have never regretted. I had many happy times, and continue to have many happy memories of my years at Glendale High. I remember how exciting it was to finally be in high school, and meet so many new people that would become dear friends. Some of those friends are still close after almost 50 years! Growing up in the '40s and '50s was great!

Rudy Droguett has risked his life for the love of his art. The artist, who is in his 70s, has traveled to Africa twice to take pictures of wild animals, which he later uses as subjects in his scratchboard etchings. He's come close to losing his life, he said. During one trip to Kenya, the vehicle he was riding in had a flat tire. There was a lion lying under a tree nearby watching the entourage. Not wanting to miss the opportunity, Droguett got out of the vehicle to take a picture.

by Geghard Arakelian In the mood to hang out with friends to catch a movie? How about some ghosts? While some reminisce in memories of their favorite spooks and others brush up on local history, a select few go out once a week in the foothills in hopes of finding the supernatural. Rumors run rampant in the mundane communities of La Crescenta, Montrose and La Cañada. Those bold enough to venture out on the weekends in search of spirits speak of the countless rumors which seem as unreal as they are eerie.
