Matilda Pearce said it was nerve-wracking to get quizzed in front of a crowd. But the 16-year-old from Altadena nevertheless emerged first among 350 high-schoolers competing in the National Sports Medicine Competition in May. Matilda, a 10th-grader at Blair High School in Pasadena, said stress was part of the fun. “The hardest questions asked were about palpations, and shoulder anatomy was very hard to remember,” she said. Eight students from Blair High School ranked in the top 25 out of 350 students in their division. About 60 schools sent students to the nationals, which celebrates knowledge ..read more

After the City Council discussion on Monday, the budget also includes an amendment proposed by Councilmember Steve Madison to set aside $360,00 ..read more

The Pasadena City College Board of Trustees will vote on June 18 to either demolish or renovate the W Building, though many teachers and students believe that decision has already been made — and they aren’t happy about it.

It’s part of the college’s facilities strategic planning process enabled by a $565 million bond approved by voters in 2022.

The frightened A Line light-rail passenger didn’t utter a word. While riding the train between the Washington and Firestone stations in South Los Angeles, the young woman showed LA Metro Ambassador Shaani McNeil a message on her phone that read, “I believe a man is following me and I need help.” McNeil took out her work phone and typed a response: “Where are you going?’ The two continued the silent conversation, avoiding any appearance that the woman had sought help — to avoid tipping off the man lurking behind her. Instead, as the train stopped, McNeil and a co-worker escorted the passenger t ..read more
