I certainly appreciate that this young lady is going to Stanford on a full scholarship. However, I had two nephews go to Stanford and graduate on full scholarships and the news never got in the paper. I certainly hope your not publishing this article because she happens to be black. I can guarantee you there are other black scholarship students at Stanford right now and probably graduating this month.

My condolences for deciding to attend Stanford. Berkeley is clearly a better school. Go Bears!

Congratulation to Kori Carter who is headed to Palo Alto, grandaughter of Duarte councilmember Lois Gaston.

On another note, Blake Caracci, the daughter of KC Caracci and stepdaughter of Duarte Mayor Protem Tzeitel Paras-Caracci is headed to UC Berkeley. She has choices of several named UC schools and decided to accept Berkeley based on her high academic achievements.

Blake spends a lot of her weekends and some school days off in Duarte since 2003. She was very active in the re-election campaign of Tzeitel.

And congratulations to all high schools graduates headed to colleges of their choices.
