Monrovia Pack 66 & Monrovia Troop 66 Scouts 
had a rare opportunity not afforded to many to 
see and learn about submersibles at SEAmagine 
Hydrospace Corporation. Off a small road 
near Cable Airport sits a warehouse, where 10 
engineers build the most amazing privately owned 
submersibles in the industry, let alone the world. 
Granted if you have a few million lying around you 
too can be the proud owner of one of these beauties, 
I foresee a lot of fundraising for our scouts. 
President and owner Charles Kohnen of 
SEAmagine gave our Scouts a behind the scenes 
tour and presentation of the operation that has 
transformed the world of undersea exploration. 
Our Scouts were treated to a demonstration of 
the submersibles robotic arms, an up-close and 
personal view of two submersibles on display in 
the warehouse and an in-depth presentation and 
videos of how they work. 
Our Scouts learned about the long history of 
producing the personal submarines and private 
submersibles. The company’s private submersibles 
have performed thousands of dives around the 
world from many types of superyachts and in 
a wide range of sea conditions. These personal 
submarines and private submersibles have been 
used in scientific, commercial, and superyachts and 
have also been used in National Geographic, BBC, 
and other numerous film projects. SEAmagine has 
a perfect safety record and a solid track record in 
reliability and practicality in both the professional 
and superyachts markets. 
Many of Pack 66 Cub Scouts are working on 
their STEM NOVA awards and this adventure 
will almost complete Cub Scout Bear Max Rily’s 
requirements. The Scouts were engaged and asking 
many questions about depth, pressure, breathing, 
time under water, and types of submersibles as 
well as the difference between a submarine and a 
submersible. The answer given by Mr. Kohnen will 
never be forgotten…a submarine has a toilet and a 
submersible does not. 
If you would like your children, boys and girls to 
have adventures like this please contact Monrovia 
Pack 66 ages 5-10 and Troop 66 ages 11-18 at or call Mr. Peters at 
626-485-1032 for more questions. Our meetings are 
on Mondays from 7-8:30pm at Monrovia Vineyard 
Church 1307 S. Myrtle Ave., Monrovia. 
Pasadena, CA -- La Salle High School has initiated a 
search for a new head football coach. Russ Gordon 
has left La Salle in order to take a position as Head of 
Football Operations at the collegiate level. 
Gordon, who was hired in 2012, was an instant 
success as the Lancers won the first 10 regular season 
games with him as the head coach after taking over 
a team that went a combined 1-19 in 2010 and 2011. 
Gordon’s program won 36 games in his tenure, 
including the school’s first playoff win in 10 years. 
“Although we are disappointed to lose Coach 
Gordon, we know this change is a great opportunity 
for him and his family, “ said La Salle’s President, Dr. 
Richard Gray. 
“Finding the next great coach who will lead La 
Salle into a new era of Lancer Football is our priority 
and we are excited to move forward in that process,” 
commented Courtney Kassakhian, Principal. 
La Salle will be accepting applications for the Lancers 
Head Football Coach beginning today. 
Please contact La Salle’s Athletic Director, Anthony 
Harris, at for details.
