~ Monrovia High's robotics team, The Kings and Queens, has been awarded the Inspire Award at yesterday's Los Angeles Region Qualifying Tournament in Palm Desert. Pretty good considering that "we had not completed the mechanical build and programming of Sir Percival in time to adequately test and troubleshoot." The win "secures us a spot in the Los Angeles Region Championship to be held on February 27th."
~ You can drop off e-waste at the Allan Company (145 W. Duarte Road) Monday through Friday 8 a.m.-5 p.m. and Saturday 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Not accepted: toasters, refrigerators, air conditioners, broken televisions and computers. Or, give Athens a call to arrange curbside pick-up: (800) 336-6100.
