PASADENA - Cleaning the glass was key to the Muir High girls' basketball team keeping a spotless Pacific League record when Crescenta Valley visited Tuesday. The Mustangs out rebounded the Falcons by 22 in the second half to maintain a healthy lead and pull off a 45-34 home victory. Muir's Emoni Jackson, who finished with a game-high 22 points and 11 rebounds, said the boards are always key. "We always focus on rebounds because if you get the rebound its another second chance and those rebounds might be important when it comes to close games," Jackson said.

The future of Glendale's design review boards may be on the line next month when the City Council takes up options for changing the process of reviewing plans for single family homes. The DRBs were set up ten years ago when there was a flurry of concern over construction of large, non-compatible homes, the problem generally known as "mansionization." The council was talking up the first proposals arising out of the view ordinance discussions, but most of the debate seemed to center around the boards, which have been a subject of controversy for some time.

CITY HALL — As City Council members grapple with how to fill 12 vacancies across the city’s 18 boards and commissions, a looming task awaits them for next year, when terms for 28 seats will expire, according to the City Clerk’s Office. The frustration some council members have felt in trying to lower the persistent vacancy rate was highlighted at last week’s council meeting with heated finger-pointing and a call for a report on how the system of nominating and interviewing candidates might be revised for tonight’s meeting.

Assembly Bill 2160, which would move several K-12 school policy issues away from the control of school boards, parents and administrators and make them part of the collective bargaining process with teachers' unions, is a flatly bad idea that should go no farther. The bill -- condemned by school boards, school administrators and parent groups across the state, including the school boards in Glendale and La Canada Flintridge -- would take the decision-making process for curricula, textbooks, standards and other issues away from boards and administrators and lump it in with the countless issues covered during collective bargaining for teacher contracts.

School boards are an American democratic institution whose members are elected to provide the leadership and approve the policies for their local community schools. Those elected to serve on the school board are individuals who reflect the local community’s values, aspirations and expectations with respect to what is taught to the children in the schools. More than ever, school boards have the challenge and responsibility to balance the academic needs of students and the wishes of their community while adhering to numerous mandates, laws, pressure groups and the microscope of public opinion.
