"In today's global-based economy, the only constant an employee can depend upon is change. Change can be frightening and abrupt, or can be met head-on. According to the State of California Occupational Trends and Outlook 1993-2005, 'The main causes of occupational structure change within industries are technological change, changes in business practices and methods of operations, and product demand changes.' Quite simply, the most effective way for the adult employee to move 'onward and upward,' so to speak, is to return to school and attain either a bachelor's degree, or continue with postgraduate education," stated a director at the University of La Verne.

Mirjam Swanson GLENDALE -- Oh, so close. Despite coming within a strike of extending its all-star season yet again, the 11- and 12-year-olds on District 16 Foothill-Tujunga Little League Major Softball team went home early this year -- early, of course, only in a relative sense for the team that had reached the Western Regionals for the past three seasons. It was Saturday's loss, in which Wildwood's cleanup hitter came through with a game-winning, two-out, two-strike bases-loaded triple, that set up Foothill-Tujunga's 2-1 loss to La Verne on Sunday in a second-chance bracket game in the Division 2 double elimination tournamentat San Diego's Serra Mesa Little League Field at Cabrillo Heights Park.

While the camp runs like clockwork, it doesn't come without some actual work.

VALLEY GLEN - The stage was set for the Renaissance Academy boys' basketball team to knock off La Verne Lutheran, the No. 2 team in CIF Southern Section Division IV-AA. The Trojans were without their dominant power forward Grant Jerrett, who injured his ankle Tuesday, and the Wildcats controlled the first half and were sitting pretty with a 15-point lead midway through the third quarter. Then everything started to unravel for Renaissance, the top-ranked team in Division VI, as La Verne Lutheran started clicking and dominated the last 12 minutes of the game to pull off a 54-45 comeback victory at L.A. Valley College on Wednesday night.
