If you have passed the finish line, why not stop running? Crossing the finish line is the most anticipated part in any race.

We asked our Facebook followers "WHY ARE YOU GRATEFUL TO LIVE IN THE SCV?" Here is what they said...
They say, "You are only as good as the people you surround yourself with." I believe this to be true with my whole heart. Our editor-in-chief and my best friend used the word "best" to describe me on page 16. I didn't like it.

It was a letter from her child's Honors math teacher that really drove an important point home for local pediatric dentist Kathy Mulcahey. "We received a wonderful, heartfelt letter from our son's high-school Honors Algebra 2/Trig teacher that really touched my husband and me," says the Legacy Christian Academy alumni mom.
