A small contingent of educators, administrators, teachers, parents and students from La Cañada High School and LCHS 7/8 traveled to Stanford last weekend to talk about student stress.

They crossed in the middle of the block, between idling vehicles in the clogged traffic. They walked, pedaled bicycles, rolled by on skateboards.

By this time next year, a local get-out-the-vote campaign could be in full swing.
For now, planning has begun for what the La Cañada Unified School District hopes will be a successful bond measure.
