" But there are risks involved with genetically modified foods, his classmates countered, including allergens.

What started out as a phone call quickly turned into a nearly $1-million no-strings-attached check for Providence High School - the largest gift from an individual in the school's history. Now, Providence High officials are using the anonymous donation to establish a faculty endowment designed to help retain top-tier teachers and foster professional development. “Donations like that don't come every day, so the opportunity to set up an endowment as a lasting legacy of the gift was very important for the administration,” said Paul Kaminski, director of advancement.

BURBANK — Apparently a majority of people believed that Arrowhead Christian was a shoo-in for victory. The Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy girls' basketball team, however, was in the minority. The Tologs persevered against the Eagles, 66-43, in the quarterfinals of the 10th annual Providence Pioneer Shootout, in a game in which most people gave them little chance.
