Talented and complete all-around players have routinely come through the pipeline the past decade to eventually star for the Crescenta Valley High girls’ water polo team. When the chips were down, an athlete like Jessie Stiles, Kristin McLaughlin or Lybov Tchougounova would rise up and become the go-to player the Falcons needed to carry them to a victory or a wealth of Pacific League championships. These days, Crescenta Valley has another player in that mold in Kim Fraisse, who didn’t begin playing water polo until four years ago. Since then, she’s earned plenty of recognition with her ability to shoot with pinpoint accuracy and hustle back on defense to break up counter-attacks.

Janine Marnien Ivette Ellis has more than 600 children. As the new principal at La Canada Elementary School, she has an interest in seeing each one of them succeed. "They're at that age where they can still be molded," she said. "It's an age where, because you see so much learning taking place, it's almost more gratifying. You can actually see when that little light bulb goes on." Ellis, who started her new job April 24, has been an educator for more than 20 years.

Tenants at a Whittier Avenue apartment complex are facing a problem that is becoming increasingly common throughout Southern California and other parts of the nation: worries that mold is endangering their health. In the case of the Camden Sea Palms complex, there are different opinions regarding the source of the mold -- a black fungus that can be seen around windows at the complex -- and whether there will be any lingering effects. Some tenants are not satisfied with the repair efforts that have been made at the complex, which is owned by Houston-based Camden Property Trust.

NORTHWEST GLENDALE — The owner of Scholars Armenian School and Arts Center on Monday said she was confident that a bankruptcy trial would not affect the campus after she made good on a $123,000 payment to avoid eviction. She owed the money for unpaid rent since declaring bankruptcy in May after failing to make other rent payments. Still, Scholars Principal and owner Anahit Grigoryan has continued to refuse paying nearly $200,000 in rent after funding a cleanup of toxic mold and asbestos, which should have been the responsibility of landlord Alex Kuiumdjian, she said.

The green tarps that are at present covering the 5000 building on the Crescenta Valley High School campus will be switched to the 7000 building over the winter break as workers continue their work on construction defects. The move will signify the completion of the first of four buildings slated for repairs due to poor construction during a $41 million remodeling project completed in 2002. The problems with buildings 1000, 5000, 6000 and 7000 began about two years after completion when heavy rains exposed several leaks.

GLENDALE — A private school is facing the possibility of eviction from its Grandview Avenue location as early as next week if its principal and owner, who filed for bankruptcy last month, fails to come up with more than $123,000 in unpaid rent. Anahit Grigoryan, who runs Scholars Armenian School and Art Center, has not paid rent for using the site at 1021 Grandview since January and, when faced with an eviction ruling in May, filed for bankruptcy in lieu of making nearly $200,000 in payments, attorneys said.

Does it really come down to the animals or politics? To Isabelle Martinez, who couldn't see the truth if it slapped her in the face: Honey, get your stories straight. Not one of us who wrote to the News-Press were disgruntled employees or employees who were let go. I quit in November because I could not stand that they continue to allow someone to work there who neglects the animals. You say it has only been proved that all the abuse came from one employee.

Slabs of clay took on the look and personalities of birds such as owls and penguins on Tuesday during a ceramics class at Dunsmore Elementary School in La Crescenta. Under the guidance of teacher April Bright, children in the summer enrichment class transformed chunks of brown clay into owls with bulging eyes and beaked noses as well as penguins with squat bodies. Bright had suggested that the students create clay sculptures of birds for this particular class session. As an example, she showed a clay owl to the class that she had recently made.

GLENDALE - Less than two weeks into his inaugural spring practices as Glendale High football coach, John Tuttle is already making his mark. The former San Marino High standout spent most of Wednesday afternoon's two-hour practice drilling his players and going over simple basic offensive and defensive formations. "The biggest thing at this early stage is to teach these young guys how to practice at a faster tempo," said Tuttle, who inherited a team that finished 2-8 last season and hasn't reached the playoffs since 2003.

The Hollywood shop owner selected the bowls and vases at the Community Center of La Cañada Flintridge’s Christmas sale.
