Darleene Barrientos Five local teens graduated to the next step of their lives during a ceremony at Catholic Charities. The youths spent several years in Glendale Police's STAR program -- which stands for Students Training as Role Models. Tuesday night, they were given a fond farewell by volunteers and police officers. Not present was 14-year-old Violeta Zepeda, who was ill. The teens, who were recruited by friends and family as elementary school students, spent their years in the program learning to use their time productively, rather than on the streets.

Some of my favorite stories as a freelance reporter are those about how music and arts programs make a positive difference in young students' lives. The idea that we wouldn't balance music and art with academics in education is sinful to me. There are some amazing programs here in Los Angeles that are worth mentioning and I have to say, I've seen some school performances that are way beyond anything we ever had in San Jose when my daughter was in high school. My girlfriend Diana Jenkins took me to her daughter Lily's dance performance at Burroughs High School in Burbank shortly after I moved here and it was an introduction to me about how talented L.A. teenagers can be when they have their heart in what they are doing.
