Gary Moskowitz Teaching a sixth-grade science class at Mark Keppel Elementary School was left entirely up to a group of Hoover High School Advanced Placement chemistry students Thursday. Seven of Sarah Vos' chemistry students showed up to Michael Hewitt's sixth-grade earth sciences class with safety goggles, beakers, acetone, Styrofoam, balloons and heat pads. Vos' team of young chemists proceeded to act out a skit as if they were a film company using chemistry to create special effects for a movie.

ON THE AGENDA The following issues will be discussed at Tuesday's meeting: 2005-06 BUDGET The board will consider approving the district's proposed $30.4-million budget, which could leave the district with an extra $400,000 at the end of the fiscal year. The state has not yet approved its budget, leaving local districts in the dark concerning two initiatives that have been proposed. One initiative would shift mental health services for children with special education needs from counties to local school districts, and would cost the La Canada Unified School District about $300,000.

I teach chemistry at a large public university, so my daughter's green hair wasn't shocking, just puzzling. This was back in 1998, when my daughter's hair was naturally blond, and we were spending the summer in a California condominium complex that had a pool. I have to admit that, even without any prodding by Greenpeace, I suspected chlorine was to blame. Pool water is chlorinated for the purpose of reacting with organic matter, such as bacteria, but hair is organic too. So there was presumably a means.
