After Daniel Fox's car accident, when doctors told his mother that his chances were not good, Toni Fox vowed to bring her child home to Arcadia no matter what. On Tuesday night, seven months after a head-on collision in upstate New York nearly killed him, Daniel, 19, walked through his front door. His weeping mother was at his side. And so were more than 150 friends, neighbors and even strangers who have kept an electronic vigil for more than seven months praying for the teenager's recovery.

Battles over use of Indian mascots by high schools and sports teams have become commonplace across the country, but the standoff over Arcadia High School's use of an Apache mascot is different. That's because Principal Martin Plourde may be the first public school official in the United States to seek a tribe's blessing to use its name. The educator, who is white and views himself as a social justice advocate, is married to an African American and taught for years in South-Central Los Angeles.

The moment Carol Huang's name was announced Monday outside the Pasadena Tournament of Roses headquarters, a throng of teenagers let out a shriek of joy that could probably be heard a few miles away at her San Marino home. They weren't celebrating because she's the next Britney Spears. And this wasn't an MTV beach party. Rather, Huang had learned she was one of the lucky seven chosen to be members of the royal court for the 111th Rose Parade.

There's a cemetery in this city with epitaphs such as "In loving memory of the nuttiest man who ever lived" for peanut researcher George Washington Carver, and "He went out with a bang" for Alfred B. Nobel, the inventor of dynamite. It's not as disrespectful as it sounds. These faux tombstones belong to the Scientists Cemetery at Arcadia High School, a research project mixing science with some ghoulish fun.

She's tall, she's blond, she's smart--and now that she's royalty, Christina Leanne Farrell won't have to walk. The 17-year-old senior was named the 81st Rose Queen on Tuesday and will reign over the last Rose Parade of the 20th century atop a float. Last year, Farrell walked the parade in the Arcadia High School marching band. "I'm just really shocked. It's so overwhelming," said Farrell, a National Honor Society member. "I first decided I wanted to be queen when I was 5."

Arcadia High School's student council members, asked by their district's school board to study a political controversy, on Tuesday recommended that the school retain its mascot of 45 years, the Apache warrior.

For weeks, Arcadia High School's Student Council has been trying to breathe life back into the school's 45-year-old mascot, the Apache warrior. The 22-member council has studied research papers and history books and held two forums, all in an attempt to decide whether the warrior is a noble symbol of school tradition or a racist stereotype that should be abandoned.
