An Eagle Scout project in La Crescenta has sparked a bit of a mystery that includes a Missing In Action Vietnam soldier and a memorial that was long ago forgotten in a Verdugo Hills Hospital parking lot. Adam Fletcher has been a Boy Scout with Troop No. 288 for four years and had been searching for his Eagle Scout project for some time. “I suggested several projects, but he rejected them all,” said his father Robert, who is also his troop’s Scout master. Adam said he wanted a project that would have a lasting effect on his community.

GLENDALE — Coming off the field shortly after being eliminated from the playoffs last season stung at first. After a grueling 12-week schedule, which included a pair of postseason contests, many of the members of the Crescenta Valley High football team were left bruised and battered from the toll of numerous physical battles. If anything, the weary Falcons might have learned a valuable lesson or two. “We got a little taste of the playoffs,” said Crescenta Valley Coach Tony Zarrillo, whose team went 9-3 and 6-1 in the Pacific League for second place before falling to top-seeded Charter Oak, 40-9, in a CIF Southern Section Southeast Division quarterfinal road game.

GLENDALE — Until July 25, it will be all about repetition. Pass patterns and defensive schemes, among other areas of concentration, will be worked on so that things will be natural once the Crescenta Valley High football team kicks off its season Sept. 11 with a nonleague contest against Verdugo Hills at Glendale High’s Moyse Field. That’s the purpose of conducting a month-long spring practice, Crescenta Valley third-year Coach Tony Zarrillo said. “We are trying to emphasize the best they can be all of the time,” said Zarrillo, whose team finished 9-3 and 6-1 in the Pacific League for second place last season.

With all due respect to Donna Huffaker Evans, her comparison of the two steak houses, Taylor’s and Smoke House, was, frankly, undercooked (“An ache for a good steak,” July 18). As a frequent diner to both establishments, I can truthfully say that Taylor’s is the finer steak house, reasonably priced, high quality and great drinks. Only occasionally does one get all these ingredients at Smoke House, which appears to have seen its better days. Now, if you want a truly interesting future “Food Fight” installment of steak houses, compare Taylor’s and Damon’s.

LA CRESCENTA — In a Pacific League that is shaping up to be pretty top heavy, the Crescenta Valley High football team may be one of the most unproven commodities. That's not to say that the Falcons, who finished third in league last year and advanced to the second round of the CIF Southern Section Southeast Division playoffs, aren't contenders. They would seem to have plenty of talent funneled in from the program's fertile lower levels. It's just that much of it is unproven at the varsity level, as only a handful of players are back from last year's team and nearly every key starting position has been reassigned.

The Crescenta Valley High football team can't predict what it will accomplish this season. Paul Schilling is a head coach for the first time at the school, he has a cast of young and inexperienced players and the Falcons are still trying to find the right personnel for their offensive and defensive schemes. On a team that has plenty of question marks, there's one steadfast presence that is prepared to lead the Falcons. He's a linebacker and an offensive lineman that his teammates call the teacher of the team.
