A different kind of school pride took hold of teachers at John Burroughs High School on Friday morning. They donned their university colors and arrived at school wearing sweatshirts, stickers, even their graduation caps. They came hoping to transfer their own enthusiasm for their colleges to Burroughs students, who spent an hour roaming from room to room, learning about the different schools. "It's very exciting to talk to the students about my own experience," said art teacher Beth Morison, who gave a presentation on Cal State Long Beach.

Jeff Tully A few months ago, if you would have asked Burroughs High softball player Lynee Hastings what is a "Chanticleer" is she would have probably looked at you with a blank stare. "I thought it was maybe some kind of chicken," she said. But the past few weeks, Hastings -- who graduated in June -- has had a crash course in the history, significance and importance of the Chanticleer, a fierce, quick-thinking rooster who ruled the barnyard in Chaucer's "Canterbury Tales."

Tubert wins first college tourney It didn't take long for Emily Tubert to make an impact in college. Playing for the University of Arkansas women's golf team, the 2010 Burroughs High graduate stormed to a victory in her first tournament as a freshman for the Razorbacks. Tubert — the 2009-10 Leader Female Athlete of the Year — paced Arkansas to a final round surge and the title at the Susie Maxwell Berning Classic Sunday at the Jimmie Austin Oklahoma University Golf Course in Norman, Okla.

DOWNTOWN — Clark Magnet High School counselor Linda Doll has become accustomed to worried seniors asking about the growing costs of college tuitions. As the economy has fallen further into recession and local unemployment rates have risen, students have begun to accept the reality that a college degree might put them in debt for a very, very long time, she said. But legislation recently introduced in the House of Representatives might offer students hope during the nationwide slump.

Molly Shore High school senior Jessica Plance, 17, like many of her classmates, was looking forward to college after graduation. But the Providence High School student never got that chance. Jessica died Nov. 16 of cystic fibrosis, a disease she fought her entire life. Cystic fibrosis, a genetic disorder attacking the respiratory, digestive and reproductive systems, is generally considered a childhood disease because most patients do not live past their 20s. The severity of the condition is determined largely by how the lungs are affected.

I have had just about enough of reading about Sara Larquier and what college she chose to go to. There are hundreds of other high school students deliberating what college they are going to go to, also. What makes her so special? Running the article once is great; it's good that she got a scholarship to the University of Virginia. But hearing about it once every few months is just ridiculous. The paper staff should try to focus on other athletes in the area, too. She is not the only talented one in this city.

Jackie Conley When it comes to life after high school, some students have it all figured out. But for those without a master plan, the answers could be right within the community. If four more years of school doesn't sound enticing, then maybe a career in the military or perhaps a trade school does. These are some of the options that will be presented to students at the College and Career Day Fair on Saturday at Woodbury University. Co-sponsored by State Sen. Jack Scott (D-Burbank)
