T o the graduating Class of 2010: We do not envy you. The effects of the Great Recession will continue for years, despite the tepid indications that a recovery is imminent. As you've seen, all it takes is a disastrous underwater oil leak, a crapshoot trillion-dollar rescue plan for Europe, the belligerent act of a communist Korean nation or one iffy Wall Street report to push the economy back down the sand hill. But rather than despair in the events you can't control, may we suggest you focus on those you can. It may not seem like it, with summer here and IKEA configurations for those college apartments in full swing, but politics reigns supreme — there is no break.

Jackson Bell Clark Magnet High School's graduation Thursday night also served as a tribute for a beloved teacher who died last year -- Dennis Henderson. A robot constructed by the Clark Robotics Program rolled out near the beginning of the ceremony and put an empty chair down in memory of Henderson. The device was named Glugh, an homage to one of the late math and physics teacher's favorite phrases: "Good luck and good hunting." "It's hard for us to imagine that he's gone," Principal Doug Dall said.

“I’ve found that luck is quite predictable. If you want more luck, take more chances. Be more active. Show up more often.” — Brian Tracy   I hear people say they will do that one thing they have always wanted to do when they win the lottery. But you ask these same people if they ever play the lottery and guess what they will say. “No!” I heard the odds of winning the lottery are 18 million to 1. That is not very good odds to wait for that type of luck.

Mirjam Swanson GLENDALE -- Odds and ends from the ninth meeting of the year of the Glendale Quarterback Club, which meets at noon Tuesdays at the YWCA Regency room. Lots of luck: After having been absent for the past few weeks, Glendale High football Coach Loi Phan greeted the 50-plus local football fanatics in attendance at Tuesday's Quarterback Club, excused his absence by saying Nitro defensive coordinator and former University of Oregon linebacker Jaiya Figueras liked the food at the meetings so much he simply hadn't let Phan attend, and then proceeded to wish his colleagues luck with all that's at stake this week.

Cindy Trane Christeson "To tidy up the house for Christmas is only a broomstick preparation. Heart preparation sweeps our lives clear." -- Charles L. Wallis "The truth is, I'm not entirely sure what Christmas is all about, but I know what it is NOT all about, and that's everything I did last year," a woman said in line behind me at the market. She was talking rather loudly on her cell phone, and while I sometimes find that to be annoying, she was actually pretty entertaining.

The following are updates on area Major League Baseball players. Brandon McCarthy (Glendale native) starting pitcher, Oakland Athletics: After spending nearly two months on the disabled list because of a strained right shoulder, McCarthy has rounded back into form with two quality appearances. However, he's encountered some tough luck, including seeing his career-best six-game unbeaten streak come to a close Wednesday night against the host Kansas City Royals. McCarthy, a right-hander who was the Athletics' opening-day starter, is looking to keep Oakland in the hunt for one of two available wild-card spots in the American League.

NORTHWEST GLENDALE - After reaching its zenith with a victory against its cross-town rival, the Hoover High boys' basketball team has since encountered another rough patch. Already ailing with the absence of Kyle Bernardo (concussion and toe injury) from the lineup, the Tornadoes looked to mount a strong second half in the Pacific League this week. It hasn't materialized. Hoover fell behind early and couldn't overcome a large first-quarter deficit en route to a 56-52 league home loss against Arcadia on Wednesday night.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE - Games that have come down to the wire have not been kind to the St. Francis High boys' basketball team so far this season. The fourth quarter of Friday night's contest between Saugus and the Golden Knights featured three lead changes and three ties. Again, a shot from St. Francis in the final seconds was off, as the Centurions prevailed, 58-52, in the La Cañada Holiday Classic Tournament pool-play game. Despite suffering another heart-breaking loss, St. Francis co-Coach Jeff Stephens said it was one of his team's best performance of the season.

GLENDALE — The following are updates on area Major League Baseball players. Brandon McCarthy (Glendale native) starting pitcher, Oakland Athletics: McCarthy continues to justify being handed a rotation spot by the Athletics in spring training with a strong start to the year, his first in Oakland. He has two quality starts in three appearances and has yet to take a loss, although his last outing was spoiled by a lack of support from the Athletics' bullpen. McCarthy saw a potential win go up in smoke on Friday when he pitched 6 2/3 scoreless innings against the Detroit Tigers at home and left the game with a 1-0 lead after having allowed six hits and striking out seven to just one walk.

LA CRESCENTA — In making its deepest playoff run in program history, the Crescenta Valley High boys' soccer team did so by catching a few breaks. On Friday afternoon, in the middle of a steady downpour, the breaks went against the Falcons. From a slick field to an own goal to a red card that resulted in the Falcons playing more than half of their CIF Southern Section Division IV quarterfinal match shorthanded, their luck ran out. Crescenta Valley saw its season come to a close with a 3-1 loss to second-seeded El Rancho.

GLENDALE — Maureen Diaz and Robert Yim have seen their fair share of highlights in Ojai in years past. But the 110th annual Ojai Valley Tennis Tournament hasn’t been kind to either, thus far. Yim, a Glendale High graduate, saw his tournament run come to a quick end on Friday, while Diaz’ singles run never really got going. Overall, highlights for locals on the day were few and far between. La Crescenta’s Sarah Ali and the Glendale Community College’s doubles squad of Sarah Aguilar and Minelli Ebrahimi were the only locals to taste victory on Friday.
