It has been a scary, and sometimes violent, few days at Newhall's Hart High School, culminating Tuesday when about half the student body stayed home because of a threatening post on a popular online community. First there were the fights along racial lines that broke out late last week. Then there was the message posted Monday on the MySpace website, proclaiming Tuesday as a "bring your weapons to school day" at Hart and other high schools in the district.

It was a stunning decision, considering Kase's oldest brother, George, had been a starting defensive tackle at UCLA. Except Cody was having a miserable experience.

Forget about arm strength, intelligence and mobility. Anyone who hopes to continue the succession of renowned quarterbacks at Newhall Hart High must pass a toughness test. Kyle Matter's came when he was sacked 11 times against Westlake Village Westlake. He never complained. Matt Moore's was against Wilmington Banning, when he was battered four times on late hits. He kept limping back to the huddle. Over the years, just about every Hart quarterback has faced--and conquered--such challenges.

Soledad Canyon Road has seen more than its share of makeshift memorials, those heartbreaking assemblies of flowers, candles and crosses that bloom along a road where someone died in a traffic accident. But the shrine that appeared last week near the landmark Saugus Speedway must have struck Santa Clarita Valley residents especially hard. It honored a young man the community had rallied around during an earlier disaster, first to support his recovery, then to celebrate it.
