3.) Stauffer Middle School's robotics team finished with a 7-2 record in their first tournament, good enough for third place and an invitation to the semi-finals. 

"As an added bonus, they were awarded the Energy Award for their team efforts," said instructor Tri Tansopalucks. "A special shout-out to Zac Nishino for volunteering his expertise in mechanical engineering. And for Matt Anderson and Liz Blanco Anderson for running an excellent tournament. We earn the name of Mary Stauffer today!"

5.) L.A. County Supervisor has endorsed his senior deputy, Steve Napolitano, as his replace on the L.A. County Board of Supervisors.

He will make the tough decisions so that we don’t put our financial burden on future generations.”

Congresswoman Janice Hahn, former Redondo Beach mayor Mike Gin and former Torrance mayor Frank Scotto also are running for the seat.
