Next time you drive down Foothill Boulevard on any early Saturday morning, look for a few students with band instruments waving and smiling on the sidewalk. These are members of the Crescenta Valley High School band and they need you to buy donuts. The donut sales, which are held every Saturday morning, are one of the fund-raisers sponsored by the CVHS music parent booster club to support the 328 members of the school's instrumental music program. "We have a good, big, active group," said booster member Colleen Godwin of the parent group.

Do you really want the Grove to come to your town? I wonder how many of those in favor of the Glendale Town Center project actually grew up in Los Angeles, like I did. If they grew up here, or even moved here in the last millennium, they might remember going to the Original Farmers Market on 3rd Street and Fairfax Avenue, one of the few remaining attractions of any charm left in this overbuilt city. If they did, they might remember how one used to be able to park there with relative ease, before the awful Grove was built.

Janine Marnien Actually getting to meet the people she has helped has given a whole new meaning to community service for La Canada High School senior Nicole Arboleda. Nicole and the rest of her fellow Key Club members adopted 13 underprivileged families through a Pasadena homeless shelter for Christmas. The project is an annual event for the student organization, but the nature of it gives a personal feel to community service, Nicole said. "Some of the people can't even speak English, but you can always see how thankful they are in their face," she said.
