All dressed up with nowhere to go. That's how many high school seniors feel when the last song of the night plays at the senior prom. Still looking good and with an abundance of energy, these soon-to-be graduates are not ready to call it a night. And Crescenta Valley High School prom-goers and their guests don't have to. For the past 12 years, Prom Plus has been part of the prom plans of CV seniors and their guests. Held at the Crescenta-Cañada YMCA, Prom Plus is an alternative to unchaperoned parties, offering a supervised post-prom event from midnight to 5:30 a.m. Included with the purchase of a prom ticket, Prom Plus provides a variety of things for guests to do, including laser tag, a full casino with blackjack, poker, craps and roulette, and pool tables.

Saturday afternoon was a flurry of activity as young men and women across the Foothills prepared for the social finale to the school year ? the Crescenta Valley High School senior prom. The prom was held last weekend at the Wallis Annenberg Hall near the California Science Center in Los Angeles. More than 700 prom tickets were sold to the formal event that started in mid-afternoon at the high school gym. But, prior to the formal festivities, Montrose?s Merle Norman was the place to be for finishing touches on the many princesses for a day. Kelly Shaftel, 17, a senior at CV High, was surrounded by family and friends as Merle Norman co-owner Kris Kline applied foundation and eyeliner to the young woman.

Gary Moskowitz SANTA MONICA -- Eighteen-year-old James Williams summed up Hoover High School's 2002 senior prom quite nicely. "They like to get their boogie on, plain and simple," James said. Most of the 492 seniors and guests who attended the big event Saturday at the Skirball Center in Los Angeles spent the night on the dance floor. Two deejays played hip hop, Top 40, reggae, salsa, Armenian music and country, featuring artists like Snoop Doggy Dog, The Beastie Boys, Rob Base, Jennifer Lopez and Usher.

Alecia Foster SOUTHWEST GLENDALE -- It had all the makings of a prom -- from the fancy dinner and formal attire to dance music and corsages. But there was something different about Daily High School's formal Friday night. This time it was o7 theirf7 prom. "We thought it would be fun to do something of our own," said student Paola Pistoia. For at least 15 years -- that anyone at the school can remember -- the students at Daily have had to attend a prom at the school they previously attended if they wanted to go. The experience, however, just wasn't the same, said Student Council Vice President Stefanie Mendoza.

Josh Kleinbaum Most students at Crescenta Valley High School have a vague memory of why Prom Plus exists. "I don't think people care," said Allison Sluk, a senior who will attend Saturday's prom and Prom Plus. "They're like, 'Oh, it's really sad.' But I don't think they realize why parents are so concerned." On June 1, 1991, at an early-morning party in an Anaheim hotel after the prom, Berlyn Cosman was shot in the head by Paul Michael Crowder.

Gary Moskowitz GLENDALE -- By the time she got to her senior prom at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Pasadena, half the fun was over for Erin Powell. Powell, 18, was among the roughly 550 seniors who attended Glendale High School's prom May 24. Even though she said she had a great time with her friends, Powell said most of the fun of prom is in the anticipation. Hoover High School's prom Saturday will close the 2002 prom season in Glendale. "The whole fun of it starts at least two months earlier, when you start looking for dresses and making your plans," Powell said.

If you are the parent of a current high school student, you will spend about $250,000 to raise that child to the age of 18, give or take a few thousand depending on family resources, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. With prom season imminent, it might be time to increase the budget. The average American family will shell out $1,139 for the big dance in 2013, a 5% increase compared to last year, according to a survey released Wednesday by Visa Inc. If that strikes you as an eye-popping sum, hopefully you don't live in New York or Connecticut.

She and the handsome El Camino College student, John Cianfrini, would marry the following year. “It was just an exciting time,” Carol said. “I was one of the few going to Inglewood High who was engaged and ready to get married in my senior year.” Now, Carol and John - who along with their business, Crys-ti Cleaners, have been a fixture in Glendale's Adam Square neighborhood for 46 years - are working to ensure that another generation of young women can reflect on prom night with fondness.

A man who shot a 17-year-old La Crescenta high school girl to death after her prom night celebration has been granted parole despite opposition from the Orange County district attorney's office. Paul Crowder has been in prison for nearly 20 years for fatally shooting Berlyn Cosman, a high-achieving student who had earned a college basketball scholarship to Missouri Western State University. Crowder was granted parole last year but then-Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger reversed that decision.

The decision to grant parole to a 39-year-old man who in 1991 shot and killed a 17-year-old Crescenta Valley High School student on prom night was met with muted public reaction Thursday. Attempts to reach the family of Berlyn Cosman - who was shot June 1, 1991, as she slept in her room after a prom night party at the Sterling Crown Suites Hotel in Anaheim - were unsuccessful, and community members who've been involved in the safe-prom cause since her death declined to comment on the parole decision, which was issued Wednesday.
