Three kids, two battles with brain cancer

For most of us at the start of a new year, it's a start down a new road, time to try something new. For Nick, Carrie and Aiden Farinella, it's a turn down a bumpy road filled with potholes. A road they have been down before.

Pay it forward by volunteering this spring

The city of Santa Clarita is never short on opportunities to make a difference. As a longtime volunteer, I've found there is nothing more rewarding than giving your time to benefit others. I've volunteered for the SCV Senior Center and Boys & Girls Club of the Santa Clarita Valley for decades, and help support local nonprofit organizations whenever I can. As a lifelong dancer, I particularly enjoy participating in the annual "Dancing with our Stars" charity event, which has raised more than $840,000 to benefit local nonprofit organizations.

School Times - Late 1940s

The first school I ever attended back in 1948 was Roosevelt School. I was a Kindergarten student then. The Roosevelt School went from Kindergarten through 12th grades. The girls wore dresses and only boys wore slacks to school. Walking to school was the norm. I sometimes would even walk to school by myself.

Artist

"Cheese burger cheese burger cheese burger," a watercolor by local artist Cheri Marcovitch, might make you hungry. Marcovitch likes painting out onto the mat because it's like "painting outside of the box," and with this one, she went the extra mile by bumping up the plate to give the burger a 3D effect. A member of the Santa Clarita Artists Association for 21 years, Marcovitch enjoys sharing her love of art with others. When she's not painting, Marcovitch is teaching watercolor painting in the Saugus Union School District's enrichment program or working with vintage furniture pieces.
