AVID students at Jefferson Middle School in San Gabriel had the pleasure of hosting NASCAR driver Dylan Lupton, when he and his racecar roared onto campus on Thursday, March 20th. The twenty-year-old student at the University of North Carolina is different from every other college student, because he is also a professional NASCAR driver. Originally from the Sacramento area, Lupton has been racing since he was thirteen. He is unique to the NASCAR world because he is also a former AVID student and most of the three hundred Jefferson students who attended the NASCAR rookie of the year’s presentation were also AVID students. Principal Matt Arnold introduced Lupton. San Gabriel Superintendent, Dr. David Yoshihara, was also in attendance. AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) is designed to teach stu-

dents the skills they need in order to succeed in school, college, and life. Indeed, Lupton’s main message was that the skills he learned in AVID helped him succeed on both the racetrack and in college. Lupton drove home the importance of organization, time management, and teamwork. He highlighted the key role of AVID in

his development of these concepts. He also stressed the importance of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) and shared how research in these areas has improved safety in NASCAR. Students listened eagerly as he described how teamwork allowed him to make minute changes on his car that yielded positive re-

sults on the track. Students also asked Lupton questions. One student’s question summed up the importance of the visit. “Do you have to go to college to be a racecar driver?” Dylan’s response was on point. “No you do not have to go to college to be a racecar driver. In fact, very few drivers have comNASCAR continued on page 12

Weekend Escape Point Lobos State Natural Reserve by Jo Anne Disney Monterey

Point Lobos State Reserve is a magnificent place to visit with the most breathtaking landscapes I have ever seen. It is located “on the central coast of California in Monterey County and its entrance is located 3 miles south of Carmel on Highway 1.” History tells us that during the Spanish occupation, Point Lobos got its name from the “offshore rocks at Punta de los Lobos Marinos, Point of the Sea Wolves, where the sound of sea lions carried inland.” Records indicate that whaling activities took place at Point Lobos around 1862. Then, in the 1880’s the demand for whale oil dropped. But in 1897, there was a brief revival of the whaling industry when a Japanese company set up business, but it only last a few years. Another industry that took hold at Point Lobos was abalone harvesting. Historians believe that right after the California Gold Rush in 1849, “a small group of Chinese fishermen & their families set sail from southern China & arrived at Point Lobos around 1851 and established what may have been the first Chinese fishing settlement in California.” Once the word got

out about the many abalone beds, Chinese flocked to this business. Then in the 1890’s a marine biologist from Japan, Gennosuke Kodani arrived at Point Lobos to see for himself that the abalone beds were as abundant as rumored. “Using handpowered pumps to supply air to the divers, the Japanese at Point Lobos pioneered an industry that eventually spread up and down the California coast.” In addition, during WWII, Point Lobos was the site of “secret military operations.” In 1943, “the Army used Whalers Cove as the site of a school to train soldiers of the 543rd Amphibious Bri-

gade in the use of amphibious landing craft.” Point Lobos also has a rich history in the movie industry as well. Several movies filmed on location at Point Lobos including: A Summer Place in 1959, The Notorious Landlady in 1962, The Sandpiper in 1964, The Graduate in 1967, and Turner and Hooch in 1989, just to name a few. If you are looking for amazing hiking trails with the most incredible scenery that includes getting up close and personal with wildlife, Point Lobos State Reserve is the place to visit. For more information call (831) 624-4909.

El Monte Welcomes Delegation of Chinese Students to Community by Chelsea Dickerson El Monte

The El Monte community hosted a delegation of students from China as part of an ongoing partnership to raise cross-cultural awareness. The 105 students, ages 8-15, and ten adults from the Harbin Zhongshanlu Primary School located in the Heilongjiang region, spent two weeks in El Monte learning about American language, customs and history and visiting Southern California museums and attractions.

The students also attended English language and history classes at California State University, Dominguez Hills. “Hosting the delegation was a fantastic opportunity to learn more about how students from China live and learn, while sharing what is important in our culture,” said Anita Patel, who was instrumental in hosting the students. “It is remarkable to see what the Chinese youth have in common with

the children of El Monte. It is an honor to share this special experience with these students and celebrate the vast diversity in our community.” A highlight of the student’s trip was a tour of El Monte City Hall and the El Monte Police Department. Patel hopes more delegations will chose to visit El Monte to learn more about the diverse culture of the community.

Citrus College STEM Teams Hold Science Day by Juliette Funes Glendora

Nearly 30 elementary- and middle-school students from the Glendora Unified School District were given hands-on science lessons that included building model rockets, catapults and projectiles during a recent Citrus College RISE Team’s Science and Technology Day fundraiser. Composed of 22 science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) students, the Citrus College Research in Science and Engineering (RISE) team successfully raised close to $2,000 to help fund its current and future research and outreach efforts. “I am proud of the success of our RISE students and their role in helping to establish Citrus College as a STEM-rich institution that not only promotes the sciences on campus, but also encourages our community’s K-12 students to be creative learners, embrace physics and have fun at the same time,” said Superintendent/ President Geraldine M.

their children to fun and creative science activities so close to where they live,” said program adviser and physics instructor Lucia Riderer. “Other parents congratulated us for having exceptional college students, who are not only smart, but able to communicate so well and interact with the children effectively.” Each participant had a college student to work with throughout the day-long

event, where their interests in science were sparked through activities such as rocket launching, racing miniature go-karts powered by mouse-trap springs and building structures for an egg-drop competition. Created last spring, each team within RISE works independently on STEMbased research projects and competes in intercollegiate national and international competitions, as well as

conducts monthly outreach activities to local K-8 schools. “These young students are the world’s future engineers, scientists and innovators, and I am delighted that our incredibly gifted RISE students are helping to shape a new generation,” said Dr. Patricia A. Rasmussen, president of the Citrus Community College District Board of Trustees.

‘Time Jockey ’

RETIREMENT GOAL by Joe Castillo

Climbing Challenge …. Bill Burke retired as a lawyer at the age of 60 and immediately moved on to the next phase of his life. It wasn’t what most retired people do but it was what Bill Burke wanted to do. Burke wanted to climb the highest peaks on each continent and for someone who had never climbed before, it would surely be a challenge. But at the age of 60, Burke embarked on a physically challenging and emotional journey to do what no one else had ever done. He trained, trained and trained some more and then tackled each continents’ highest peaks. His conquests included Mt. McKinley, Aconcagua, Mt. Kilimanjaro, Mt. Elbrus, Vinson Massif, Mt. Kosciuszko, the Carstensz Pyramids and Mt. Everest. These were the highest peaks on each of their respect continents and when Burke summited 29,000 foot Mt. Everest in 2009, he became the oldest American to accomplish the feat. At a recent meeting of the San Gabriel Valley historical organizations, Burke presented his documentary on his trek up Mt. Everest. He brought along his own mountain climbing equipment to show the audience the necessary tools for mountain climbing. His collection included a harness, helmet, goggles, hand gloves, hiking shoes with crimp-ons, Carabiners and Jumar devices to protect you from sliding down your rope. In addition, Burke brought empty oxygen tanks which are used for elevations above 23,000 feet and a supplement oxygen system which allows you to breath in the high altitude. Each oxygen tank will last 6-7 hours and one can use 8 tanks in each climb. Burke also showed his down coat which can keep someone warm in weather up to -30 degrees which is well worth its $1,000 cost. Burke has tried to climb Mt. Everest five times and has been successful only once which was on 5/23/2009. He was 67 years old at the time, and his body was completely challenged to accomplish the feat. In 2012, Burke attempted to summit Mt. Everest from both the north and south sides in the same season, which is only 3 months long between April and June. The climb was difficult with high winds reaching 100 MPH, avalanches, rock slides and traffic jams of climbers also intent on reaching the Mt.

Everest summit. But there were other dangers along the way including loss of oxygen, hypothermia, frozen extremities which are always the first to feel the effects of the bitter cold and just standing around while trying to avoid freezing. In preparation for his climbs, Burke trained 6 days a week for one year. He lost 30 pounds from training but also prepared spiritually and emotionally for the climb. It was a complete effort to prepare for the 2012 Mt. Everest climb but Burke’s journey ended when he failed by just 1,000 feet away from reaching the summit. However Burke was not disappointed and stated that ‘you don’t have to summit any mountain in order to be successful’. Many climbers do not survive Mt. Everest and their bodies remain on the mountain in a frozen state. Bill Burke has accomplished what no other older American has done and has proven that retirement is not the end of life but the beginning of new goals….

WEBB'S THE FAB FOUR SIGNING by Eugene R. Webb

Tallahassee and Tarpon Springs Dwain Crum “The Sea Rebel”, was born in Pasadena, CA and a lifelong resident of Rosemead, CA. Retired after 29 years as a history teacher at Rosemead High School. Dwain is fulfilling a lifelong dream of traveling around the world.

The Fab Four blend together like one; On the stage it appears they're having fun. So listen, listen, for this is the straight scoop; It would be hard to find a more talented group. Many different instruments they do play; As they sing those wonderful songs of "Yesterday". Impersonators, they certainly are not; Honoring the Beatles music is what they've sought. The Fab Four wasn't having a "Hard Days Night"; For the audience they were a pure delight. When they sang, "I Wanta Hold Your Hand"; The audience went wild and started to stand. The standing ovation is what they really deserved; For the Beatle's music they have joyfully preserved. There's not enough I can say about the Fab Four; Except when you see and hear them, you'll want more. As of 2014, there still was no direct Amtrak rail service from New Orleans, LA to Ft. Lauderdale, FL. So just like I did in 2013, I rented a car from Avis and started heading east on the I-10. Unlike 2013, this time my drive was planned. I spent nights in Ocean Springs, MS as well as Tallahassee, FL and Tarpon Springs, FL. I stayed in Ocean Springs, MS at the Holiday Inn located there. Corrine, the manager, had helped me during my 2013 trip and I had promised that I would stay there the next time I passed thru town. The Gulf Coast of Mississippi is a unique place and I would recommend staying there and sampling the seafood in places like “Mike's on the Bayou.” Farther east along the

Gulf Coast and the I-10 is Tallahassee, FL. Tallahassee is the state capital of Florida as well as the home of Florida State University. The FSU Seminoles were on the road that night but I got to see a community college basketball game at Tallahassee City College. At the Bill Hebrock Eagledome located on the TCC campus, I saw the host Eagles lose to the visiting Pensacola State Pirates by a score of 49 to 62 (I didn't even know Pensacola was a state!). From Tallahassee, I took a side trip down to Tarpon Springs, FL. I've known about Tarpon Springs for a long time. The late American journalist Charles Kuralt (1934-1997) had done a segment of his On the Road series about Tarpon Springs. Tarpon

Springs is renowned for its Greek sponge dining industry. It has the highest percentage of Greek Americans of any U.S. city. I had dinner at “Hellas,” one of the most famous of the Greek restaurants located in the Sponge Docks District of Tarpon Springs. I finally reached Ft. Lauderdale, FL after driving 970 miles. I would add another 48 miles in my Gold Coast Rental car around Ft. Lauderdale during my two nights there. So after traveling 3,013 miles (1,995 by rail) I would board my new ship, the Crown Princess (113,561 gross tons), for a 49-day cruise around South America.

The newest “sport” in America, ComedySportz combines the competition of sports with the artistic expression of theatre, where “winning” is only part of the show. In fact, players will attest to the fact that the “we must win” attitude prevalent in so many high school activities is a sure ticket to failure in ComedySportz. Each match pits two teams of improvisers in a friendly battle for audience laughs. With an Astro-turfed stage, player uniforms, a referee, a scoreboard, a ballpark organist and audience judges, ComedySportz successfully blends sports with theatre in

a fun, fast-paced show designed for all ages. In summation, the ComedySportz High School League is the students’ game. They create, direct and perform their own material off the top of their heads, without the time to stop and question or deny their abilities. When was the last time you saw a high school play written, performed and directed by high school students? They can do it, and now they have the chance. Our annual "ANYTHING GOES SHOW" is scheduled for Thursday, April 17, 2014 at 7:00 p.m. in Theatre 601. Temple City High School Campus, 9501 Lemon Ave, Temple City, CA 91780. General Admission $5.00.

Congresswoman Grace Napolitano paid a visit to the Arroyo High School campus where she attended a rehearsal of the school's wind ensemble. Next month, the 45 students will travel to Washington DC for five days where they will perform as part of the Washington DC International Music Festival at the Kennedy Center. "We were invited to perform following a spectacular unanimous superior rated performance at our regional festival last May," said Joe Massaro, Arroyo High School band director. "Washington DC is a

vibrant city and the concert hall of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts is a stunning venue as well as home to the National Symphony Orchestra," said Deborah Lee, CEO of World Projects Corporation. "This is a wonderful opportunity to present your ensemble in this prestigious venue." Select high school ensembles from across the country, as well as the general public, will be in attendance. In addition to the performance, the students will spend some time sightseeing which will include a dinner cruise on the Potomac River where they will be able to

view Washington DC from a completely different vantage point. Students will also attend a workshop with Dr. Dennis Johnson, festival artistic director and director of bands and orchestras at Murray State University in Kentucky. While in the nation's capitol, the students will have the opportunity to meet with Napolitano in her DC office. "We are very proud to receive this invitation to showcase our talented Arroyo wind ensemble," said Superintendent Nick Salerno. "We know they will represent Arroyo High School and our district well."

Foothill Gold Line Extension News by Metro San Gabriel Valley

Construction on the Pasadena to Azusa segment of the Foothill Gold Line continues to be at the most active pace of the project, with many visible activities taking place throughout the alignment. Three of the six stations now have their canopy structures: Arcadia, Monrovia and Duarte. Soon, these stations will be transformed, as they quickly go from skeletal to completed. As you can see from the photos below, some of the stations will have one center platform, while others will have two side platforms. Each will have unique colors and materials, as well as custom artwork currently being designed and fabricated throughout the region and the country. All of the six future stations will have parking, and work is underway on four of the parking structures: Arcadia, Monrovia, Irwindale, and APU/Citrus College station. Foundations for the

Overhead Catenary System are more than halfway installed, and the first few traction power substations (which will deliver power to the overhead wires that provide electricity to the light rail trains) have been installed in Duarte and Azusa. Miles of retaining and sound walls are now built; and track, ballast, rail and ties are being installed in many sections of the 11.5mile corridor.

Locals Honored at NFF Scholarship Banquet by Staff Writer Pasadena

Brave New World What would John Wooden have thought of the dark jerseys UCLA wore in its “Sweet 16” loss to Florida last Thursday? I mean, we’re not talking about USC or Colorado, or Slippery Rock. We’re talking about U-CL-A. Brave New World Part II A National Labor Relations Board regional director Wednesday found that Northwestern football players who receive scholarships are university employees and may unionize. The worst is yet to come. Good News Department: The Los Angeles Lakers, as of tonight, have only seven more games remaining. Outside of this good news the next question is, does anybody care? Department of Income Inequality: Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout, 22, agrees to six-year $144.5-million contract one week after Detroit Tigers pitcher Max Scherzer, 29, with much more mileage, turns down the same contract in terms of money and length. Things to Keep an Eye on: Baseball: Rosemead sophomore Angel Lopez Jr. is leading the Mission Valley League in batting with a .412 batting average. Lopez through ten games has collected 14 hits in 34 at-bats, he’s driven in six runs, and stolen five bases. Softball: South El Monte junior Ashley Diaz is leading all Mission Valley League players with a .519 batting average. Through eight games she has 14 hits in 27 at-bats, has hit four home runs, and driven in 17 runs. She’s also stolen three bases. Outside of Area Notes: Former San Gabriel head football coach Jude Oliva has resigned at Maranatha. Long time La Canada girls basketball coach Tamar Hill has stepped down. Happy Birthday this week to:

4/2: Former Temple City lineman/Mid Valley staffer Johnathan Saller turns 28 4/2: Mid Valley photographer Andrew Butter turns 21.

View head football coach James Wilson turns 38. 4/6: Former El Monte basketball standout Jim Wooten turns 52. 4/6: Former Arcadia pitcher/ quarterback Garrett Tuck turns 22. 4/7: El Monte alum Raul Salas turns 50.

The San Gabriel Valley/ Pasadena Chapter of the National Football Foundation honored 43 scholar-athletes at its 44th annual awards banquet at Brookside Golf Course Tuesday, handing out $20,000 in scholarship money. Fox Sports analyst and AM 570 host Petros Papadakis was the main speaker The requirements met by the 43 athletes were these: They must be a graduating senior and a member of the varsity football team. Must carry a minimum grade point average of 3.0 in a college preparatory program. Must demonstrate outstanding citizenship and leadership. Be active in community and/ or school service. They must be nominated by their head coach, and that nomination must be approved by their guidance counselor and school principal. Among those honored was El Monte Football player Jacob Moran, who received the David M. Davis/Tournament of Roses Scholarship worth $2,500. “I am very proud of this great young man,” said El Monte head coach Joel Sanchez. There were three additional scholarships valued at $500 each for the Great Minds in STEM Scholarship, which includes an all-expense paid trip to the GMIS annual conference in New Orleans in October. South El Monte’s Jose Robles received a STEM scholarship. Other locals honored were: David Perez (Duarte),

La Salle Lances Arroyo, 12-0 by Tim Peterson Whittier

The La Salle Lancers exploded for eight runs in the first inning and went on to cruise to a 12-0 rout of Arroyo Knights Saturday in the Whittier Tournament. The game was called after five innings due to time limit. Paula Damas pitched all five for the Lancers and shut out the Lady Knights. She struck out eight and allowed just three hits. Arroyo never got a runner past second base and getting a runner to second base only happened once. With Damas doing the work in the circle, the Lancer offense put the game away early. Beverly Valerio led off the first inning with a single and stole second but with two outs she was still out there. Then the roof caved in on Arroyo. By the time the dust had settled in

the first inning, La Salle had eight runs on the board and never looked back. Rebecca Barber had two hits for Arroyo and Cynthia McKeehan had the other but

that’s all the Lady Knights could muster against Damas as La Salle improved to 11-3 on the season and Arroyo dropped to 6-3 overall.

The Peterson Principle By Tim Peterson

“It's where KISS meets Arena Football. I promise you it won't be like anything you have ever experienced. It's going to be a show. I don't want to spoil it but let's just say there are going to be more pyrotechnics than you've ever seen,” said KISS lead singer Paul Stanley Sunday at the Honda Center in a public even held for fans of the LA KISS. Okay cool. We covered the LA Avengers when they played at Staples Center before disbanding a few years ago. And that was indeed a show. Now Arena Football is back in the LA/Orange County area with the KISS led by Stanley and Gene Simmons. I don't know what to expect but if you're old enough to remember KISS or have been to one of their concerts this could be off the charts. Will Simmons drop out of the sky at the 50 yard line and start breathing fire? Will Stanley show up in full Starchild makeup and begin belting out “I wanna rock 'n roll all night and party every day?” We don't know but that's what makes it so intriguing. “Your head better be on a swivel,” added KISS President Schuyler Hoversten. Fireworks, dancing girls, rock concerts at halftime, and Arena Football all led by two of the most outrageous rock stars of all time? What more could you ask for? And season tickets start as low as $99.00 for nine games. For the record, the KISS is currently 1-1 after splitting two road games. Their first home game is this Saturday night April 5 against the Portland Thunder at 7:00 pm at Honda Center. Some of you might still scoff at Arena Football but keep this in mind - the Kiss is the only professional football team in Southern California and probably will be for quite some time. The question is when does the KISS become the LA KISS of Anaheim? Norwalk's Rodrigo Sanchez and Dillon Famatau spent the weekend on an unofficial visit to Arizona State. Have you seen some of the bubbas on the Norwalk roster? The Lancers may not have a Penny to their name this year but they seem to have everything else. It's hard for me to believe that Jude Oliva won't end up on somebody's staff this year. A lot of coaches step down to spend more time with family and that may have been indeed the case with Oliva. But I'm just

hearing a lot of rumors as to different schools that would love to have his football mind on their staff. Stay tuned... Speaking of coaches the Final Four is loaded with some heavy hitters – Billy Donovan, John Calipari, Bo Ryan. I like Kentucky and Florida in the championship game with Donovan and Florida winning a third NCAA title. Note to all UCLA fans: A Sweet Sixteen appearance is a nice run for Steve Alford in his first year. Give him at least three years. Sorry but the days of John Wooden will never be seen again. That's my principle. Tim can be reached at tim@ midvalleysports.com or on Twitter @tspeterson 40.

Oliva Steps Down at Maranatha

by Joe Torosian Pasadena

After one season, long time area football coach Jude Oliva has resigned from his position at Maranatha. “This was a difficult decision to make, but I have complete confidence that the leadership of Maranatha will find you a great new coach,” said Oliva. “With a second child on the way, I would not be able to lead this program while effectively managing the personal aspects of my life.” Oliva played his high school football at San Gabriel and then served on

In the baseball battle between Baldwin Park and Pasadena last Tuesday each team scored eight runs, but darkness prevented a winner and left them with the most uncommon of baseball outcomes an 8-8 tie. Pasadena took a 4-0 lead in the fourth inning but gave it all back to Baldwin Park in the top of the fifth. The Bulldogs again took the lead 6-4 but the Braves fought back to grab an 8-6 advantage.

ily in the deadlock as the teams combined for six errors (4 PHS, 2 BP) over the final three innings and nine overall. Amidst the flood of miscues, both the Bulldogs and Braves were cracking away at the plate as each team had more than 10 hits. Jose Valdivia went two for four, scored two runs, and led Baldwin Park with three runs batted in. Also contributing to the Braves’ cause were Michael Guzman (2/3, 2 doubles, 2 RBI), Jordan Palacio (2/5, 2 runs, 1 RBI), Tim Wells (2/3, 2

runs), and Anthony Franco (3/3, R, HBP). Baldwin Park resumes play next week with two home games, beginning on Monday with Chaffey before a showdown with its cross town rival Sierra Vista, on Wednesday.

Kelly Slater Wins Oakley Wave of the Winter by Margaret Drischler National

11-time World Champ Kelly Slater's no-handed Pipeline bomb earned top honor as the Wave of the Winter for the 2013-14 North Shore season. After much scrutiny of a host of top rides, the expert judging panel of Gerry Lopez, Pancho Sullivan and Ross Williams declared Slater the winner based on wave size, degree of difficulty of maneuvers, style, and anoverall "heaviness" factor. "That was one of the best waves I've ever had out there," Slater said. "I was late on the drop and had to do a big pump to get some speed. I didn't even grab because I thought the lip was going to explode me off. Somehow the explosion

didn't shoot me back up the face and then it shot me out so hard. I was on my toes in the air." Slater became the first surfer in the event's young history to win both the Oakley Wave of the Winter and Clif Bar Overall Performance Award. The Overall Performance Award was given to Slater for demonstratingoutstanding skill, commitment, courage, and style, while consistently riding the most challenging waves offered on the North Shore

through the Wave of the Winter waiting period. He received a $10,000 cash prize, as well as $10,000 to donate to his charity of his choice, the Kokua Hawaii Foundation. After a somewhat slower early season, the ocean's energy really began to pick up in December delivering several days of near-perfect conditions during which Slater snagged his $25,000 ride on December 21st.

All items raised were donated to the Emergency Resources Association, a local nonprofit organization providing basic needs such as food, shelter and clothing for families in crisis.

Arcadia Unified Superintendent Announces Retirement by Ryan Foran Arcadia

Arcadia Unified School District Superintendent Dr. Joel Shawn has announced that he will be retiring at the end of the school year. Dr. Shawn has been with the high-performing district since 2005, and was named superintendent in the summer of 2008. “I have been unbelievably fortunate to spend the final nine years of my 36-year career in Arcadia,” said Dr. Shawn. “The teachers and staff of this school district are clearly committed to the youth of Arcadia and are the best educators I have ever worked with. I am exceptionally proud of the work we have done together and believe the future holds continued success and excellence for Arcadia Unified.” Dr. Shawn led the district through the heart of the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression, yet did not cut a single arts or sports program, and was

able to greatly minimize teacher layoffs. “In 2012, Dr. Shawn worked with the board to campaign for the community’s support of a $228 per parcel tax which generated $35 million for Arcadia schools that cannot be taken away by the state,” said Cung Nguyen, President of the Arcadia Unified School District Board of Education. “The funds were used to retain and attract high-quality teachers, protect academic programs and preserve the marching band and our visual and performing arts programs.” The first two phases of the $218 million Measure I Facilities Bond, which was passed in 2006, have also been successfully managed on time and under budget thanks to Dr. Shawn’s leadership. Arcadia students, teachers, and staff are now enjoying state-of-the-art classrooms and facilities

throughout the district. Upon completion, Measure I will have modernized all ten schools in the district with the latest technology and modern amenities. Measure I was also responsible for the community’s new stateof-the-art 1,200 seat Arcadia Performing Arts Center located on the Arcadia High School campus. Dr. Shawn’s student-first approach and leadership ability has helped uphold Arcadia Unified’s reputation of being one of the best public school districts in the entire country. Boasting a district-wide 929 on the latest Academic Performance Index (API), and a graduation rate of 99%, AUSD continues to be recognized nationally for many of its academic, arts, and sports programs. Among AUSD’s many prestigious recognitions is a “Gold Medal” rating for Arcadia High School from the U.S. News and

Courtesy photo World Report’s 2013 National Rankings, for which more than 21,000 public high schools were evaluated. In this current school year alone, AUSD has three of the top four highest scoring middle schools in Los Angeles County on the Academic Performance Index, including Foothills Middle School, which earned the highest score in the county with an impressive 977. In addition to 22 National Merit Scholarships finalists at Arcadia High School this year, two Arcadia High students grabbed additional headlines with their remarkable test scores. One student earned a perfect score on his AP Calculus BC Exam, while

another earned the highest possible score on the ACT Exam. Both rare feats were accomplished by less than one-tenth of one percent of students who took those particular exams. “While it is extremely difficult for me to imagine my life without coming to AUSD everyday, I am excited to begin my next chapter,” Dr. Shawn added. “I am convinced that our students will lead the world in the years to come, and that our work here has shaped them in ways that will help to guarantee a brighter future for everyone.” Dr. Shawn’s last day on the job will be June 30, 2014.

ary, Pipeline took no notice, serving up ideal conditions and powerful swells well into the late season. With the ASP World Tour on recess, Slater stayed put on the North Shore, wracking up multiple entries throughout the winter and building a strong case for the Overall Performance Award. "Kelly had a hell of a season," said Head Judge and Pipeline legend Gerry Lopez. "That's how it is when there are these once-in-every-30-years Pipeline seasons, the cream rises to the top. He was consistent and awesome. Plus, Kelly has to work harder to get his waves; the hardcore Pipe guys don't cut him any slack like they would for Jamie or John John or Mason. So let's celebrate Kelly's excellence in the most excellent Pipe season since '74." During Slater's Clif Bar Overall Performance interview on Australia's Gold Coast, Oakley's Sebastian Zietz and Tommy Whitaker jumped out of the bushes with an oversized $25,000 check and bottle of bubbly in celebration of the double victory. A stunned Slater exclaimed, "No way! Are you serious? Wave of the Winter! That's such a surprise. I knew I had a couple good ones. They told me the other day I got the Performance Award, and I was really stoked. I wasn't expecting this at all. I came down here thinking, 'Oh, I wonder who got the Wave of the Winter?' And then these guys jumped out from behind the bush and just surprised me. I'm really stoked." Wave of the Winter sponsor Oakley was honored to award the grand prize to Slater. "That was by far one of the best early North seasons I have seen," said Ronny Nelson, Oakley Global Surf Manager. "There were some absolutely heavy days out there and guys were pushing the limits further than ever. The wave Kelly Slater won was one of the coolest waves I have ever seen ridden at Pipe. Some how Kelly does what he does with that off balance approach through the barrel, but what I think is amazing is how he seems to carry more speed out of a barrel than anyone else. Truly the best ever at backhand tube riding and a well deserved win." In a new division for 2013/2014, Pipeline specialist Jamie O'Brien claimed $20,000 for the GoPro of the Winter for his POV angle of a lengthy Backdoor barrel. Special thanks to Oakley Wave of the Winter Powered by Surfline judges: Gerry Lopez, Pancho Sullivan and Ross Williams and Contest Director, Darren Brilhart.
