Burbank Unified School District principals returned to work on Monday to get ready for the new school year, which begins Sept. 1. Among them were Anita Schackmann, the new principal at Luther Middle School, and Heather Haug, the new assistant principal of discipline at Burbank High School. "I'm kind of old, but new," said Haug, who previously taught science to Burroughs High School students. "The district is familiar with me, I've worked with a lot of people, but Burbank High School is brand new. Meeting the staff and the new students will be the best part of the job."

The late afternoon sun cast its many-colored lights and shadows up the canyon. Wrens and finches chattered as they gathered their last seeds of the day. A jay screeched and the small birds scattered. The warmth of the light seemed to counter the cool brisk afternoon air as I walked out onto the deck. For a brief moment the play of light through the trees recalled the cheery colors of the holiday just past. I was stalled in reverie. The cold does this to me. But it was time to go; time for a walk around the hill to get the juices flowing.

Torrey AndersonSchoepe Matt Palocsay's tribute to his mother and grandmother, a 534-mile run from San Francisco to Laguna Hills over 11 days, helped raise money and awareness about cancer and Healing Odyssey, the company that helped his two loved ones fight cancer. He carried enough water on his back to last the trek -- one gallon was just enough for every 25 miles. Making stops all over the California coast, Palocsay stopped in Laguna Beach on Tuesday with only eight miles left to the finish line.

Middle School teachers worked diligently Tuesday to prepare for students' return to school Thursday. Teachers from Jordan, Luther Burbank and John Muir middle schools participated in staff development days on Friday, Monday and Tuesday, designed to help better prepare them for the new school year. "It gets me all the more excited for the school year," said Rod Rothacher, an eighth-grade teacher at John Muir. "It helps us get ready." Teachers at John Muir Middle School learned about "thinking maps" on Monday, which are different graphs and charts that help organize material that students learn into visual and easy-to-remember charts.

Hacking had agreed to have his hair shaved and styled into a colored Mohawk if students raised $2,500 for the Red Cross to help Hurricane Katrina Victims.

The Laguna Beach High girls' water polo team entered play this week without a familiar face poolside. Rick McKee, who has coached the girls' and boys' water polo teams at the school for the past four years, resigned from his post Tuesday. McKee's said his resignation had to do with "personal reasons." He said that Chad Beeler, the head coach of Laguna Beach Age Group Water Polo, will step in to coach the girls' squad the remainder of the season. In his last week at the helm, McKee's Breakers finished third at the Villa Park Classic.

Beginning with the new school year, a program that provides therapeutic counseling services to the Burbank Unified School District's middle schools will expand to include the district's high schools. The Family Service Agency of Burbank, a nonprofit counseling center that has operated in Burbank for more than 50 years, will expand its services based on input from district high school and middle school students at a youth summit in 2001. "They really let their hair down about things they were concerned about, things they'd like to see happen," said Hank Jannace, the district's director of pupil services.

It was a little too close for comfort. But in the end, the fires that blackened local canyons and hillsides recently were beaten back by responders whose fight was as intense as the roaring flames that came so close to homes. This is a chance to say thanks to up to 1,400 firefighters from multiple agencies who spent four days last week battling the 1,100-acre blaze in the Verdugo Mountains. Surely, without their effort, homes would have been destroyed and perhaps severe injury would have followed.

“A bear’s days are warmed by the same sun, his dwellings are overdomed by the same blue sky, and his life turns and ebbs with heart pulsings like ours….” — John Muir I could be a bear. As I walked Bear Creek Trail on our recent Montana vacation, the thought that I could be a bear came to mind. For some reason, I could not seem to shake it. A bear is a mammal. I am a mammal. A bear is omnivorous, eating more plants than animals.
