After a week of trying to get vacation-minded youngsters back into the swing of things, it's T.G.I.F. and thanks for Monday, too!

School supplies have been purchased. Forms and permission slips have been signed and returned. Checks have been written to pay for the potpourri of activity fees, gym suits and PTA and booster club dues that seem to materialize every year.

Take a breather, parents. You deserve it. And have a safe and enjoyable Labor Day holiday.

A new scoreboard soon will be rising over the Pasadena Chargers' football field at Lake Waterford Park. It won't be Diamond Vision, but it will be electric and the players, cheerleaders and fans will instantly know what's happening on the field without craning their necks.

The scoreboard project has long been the dream of Bill Rothenbecker, Chargers president.

Longtime parent volunteers Gary and Mary Windsor decided to help get Bill's dream off the ground.

"We started in January getting ideas, plans and funding together to have the scoreboard in place for this year's rec football season," Mary Windsor said. "Our organization usually relies on Charger families to help raise the funds we need, but the scoreboard costs mounted to approximately $4,500.

"That was a little too much to handle given the rising costs of equipping the kids, so for the first time in 25 years, we went to the Pasadena community at large and asked for help," she said.

Many local business and Charger families have donated building materials and money, but the fund is still short.

"Even though we haven't reached our goal, we will be breaking ground, and getting that scoreboard up in time for this season's play," Mary Windsor said.

Donations can be sent to: Pasadena Chargers, c/o Bill Rothenbecker, 232 Armstrong Lane, Pasadena 21122.

For more information, call Bill Rothenbecker, 544-2077, or Mary Windsor, 544-2186.
