It wasn't fireworks that John Rodarte, Robert Sheedy and Mike Leum of Montrose Search and Rescue saw on Independence Day. It was snow — and lots of it — as they arrived at the 14,000 foot summit of Mt. Rainer on the Fourth of July. Reaching the peak was the culmination of three days of hard climbing. "Summit day was fourteen-hours of non-stop hiking," recalled Leum. The trip took a total of four days, three days up and one day down. Six other climbers, including four guides, completed the team.

Sometimes, just sometimes, you run across people who refuse to let anything stop them. Take, for instance, Paul Fejtek and his wife Denise. The two recently climbed Mt. Everest despite the fact that Paul has full use of only one hand. The 1988 Hoover High graduate was born with Brachial Plexus Palsy, a disorder resulting from nerve damage. The two live in Newport Beach, but will be returning to their hometown Wednesday to talk about a book they wrote about their experiences called “Steps to the Summit.” The talk is at 7 p.m. at the Glendale Central Library.

Buck Wargo GLENDALE -- A police escort and pepper spray -- two topics that don't usually come to mind when thinking about youth sporting events. For umpire Mike Padula, pepper spray has become over the last year just as much a piece of his equipment as a chest protector and mask. It is a precaution against overzealous parents of youth baseball or adult softball players. Padula, past president of the Crescenta Sports Assn., needed an escort from sheriff's deputies a year ago when parents were angered about calls in a Babe Ruth League game in Dunsmore Park.

LA CA—ADA FLINTRIDGE ? Tobacco use is the most common gateway to alcohol and drug abuse, a psychologist who studies foothill teen substance abuse told community leaders Saturday. Psychologist Paul Royer also said that children of overly-dominant or permissive parents are most likely to abuse drugs or alcohol; older teens and young adults who would normally be away at college are hanging around town and contributing to the teen substance abuse problem; and more 13- and 14-year-olds are using drugs and alcohol.

Buck Wargo GLENDALE COMMUNITY COLLEGE -- The deaths of two teenagers in La Crescenta wasn't far from the minds Thursday night of members of a group looking for answers to reduce violence in the community. A coalition of community activists, police and government officials held a study session for a community summit on Sept. 23 to address problems with gangs, ethnic tensions and violence. The idea for the summit sprung from the death in May of Raul Aguirre, a 17-year-old student who was beaten and stabbed trying to break up a fight between gang members.

GLENDALE ? A group of eight Glendale High School students traveled halfway around the world in their attempt to save it. They arrived back in Glendale around 3 a.m. Tuesday, suffering from jet lag but years wiser diplomatically. The group's elected leader, Diana Perez, met President Bush and verbally delivered part of a communiqué to the heads of state of the world's eight most prosperous nations during the Group of 8 Summit in St. Petersburg, Russia. "It was exciting," Diana said of sitting between Bush and Japanese Prime Minister Koizumi Junichiro during a round-table meeting of the heads of state Sunday.

GLENDALE — Heading into its CIF Southern Section Division V first-round boys’ volleyball match, Glendale Adventist Academy and Coach Hugo Gomez knew little about host Summit, the San Andreas League champion. But after first glimpsing their opponents, the Cougars seemingly knew enough. “We were a little intimidated I think,” said Gomez in reference to the opposition’s size. But it was the height and skill of the Skyhawks that ultimately keyed their overwhelming sweep of the Cougars, as Glendale Adventist’s season came to a first-round end after a 25-10, 25-10, 25-13 loss on Tuesday evening.

I think a registry of convicted animal abusers (“Animal abuse registry in works,” Feb. 26) makes good sense to anybody who wants to see animals protected from animal collectors, dog-fighting rings and many other kinds of abuse, but I don’t see why the public needs to have access to it. It would be a better idea to have the registry available, nationally, to pounds, humane societies, rescuers, sanctuaries and reputable breeders responsible...
