GLENDALE — The following are odds and ends from the local sports scene. ANOTHER NEW, BIG STAGE FOR FIGHTER Along Karen Darabedyan 's road to World Extreme Cagefighting, there were only seldom times in which his fighting career ventured away from California. But when Darabedyan boards a plane today to leave for his next WEC bout, he will once again find himself somewhere new — this time in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. "The cool thing is I tell my friends if it wasn't for fighting I probably wouldn't get out of Glendale," said the 9-2 Darabedyan, who will take on Will Kerr on Sunday night as part of WEC: Varner vs. Shalorus at Rexall Place in Edmonton.

I disagree with Sharon Weisman’s July 27 letter, “Single-payer is the way to go.” She is right when she says Canadians have a longer life expectancy — about one year longer. She is right about the infant mortality rate, which is slightly lower in Canada, however, so is their birth rate, and some believe that is connected to poor prenatal care. If she is right about the 45 million people without health care, how many millions are afraid to come forward for health care due to illegal immigration problems?

This is a story about what this immigrant went through on the way to citizenship. After several trips to California from Canada in the 1940s, my family made what I thought would be the final journey across the country on Route 66 in June 1952. I was 12 years old at the time and had no idea what lay ahead because my parents, my father in particular, failed to obtain a permanent residence visa. In late 1953, my father was caught working with only a visitor's visa. That was a huge no-no.

Accomplished water polo player Chase Borisoff admits there's nothing like getting the ball a few meters away from an opponent's goal, working for a shot and finally firing a laser that makes its way past a flailing goalkeeper and into the cage for a score. "Everybody likes to score," said Borisoff, who just completed his senior season with the La Cañada High boys' team. "But there's a lot more to water polo than scoring. " There's probably not a truer statement that can be uttered that more encapsulates Borisoff's performance, and his worth to the Spartans, during the 2012 season than the words that came out of his own mouth.

LA CANADA FLINTRIDGE - Glendale High boy's soccer Coach Arthur Aghasyan called it a statement win. Aghasyan's sentiments came on the heels of an impressive victory for the Nitros over the La Cañada, which started the season winning eight of 10 games and is ranked fifth in CIF Southern Section Division V. The Nitros, on the flip side, have struggled this season, but executed well against the Spartans in a physical, scrappy contest that saw Glendale...

While making its first foray past the opening round of the CIF Southern Section Northeast Division playoffs in nearly a decade, the Flintridge Prep football team isn't heading into Friday's second-round tilt with Mission Prep with a just-happy-to-be-here attitude. The Rebels are decided underdogs to the top-seeded Royals, but aren't conceding anything as they tune up to take a shot at Goliath at 7:30 p.m. at La Cañada High. “We know they're obviously ranked No. 1, but we're really not looking at the records much,” Rebels linebacker Chadd Cosse said.

NORTHWEST GLENDALE - Anthony Mizrahi originally wasn't scheduled to pitch Friday afternoon for La Cañada High in a nonleague game against host Hoover. As luck would have it, the junior pitcher was given the starting assignment on the mound after original starter Cole Herzer missed practice Thursday because of a doctor's appointment. Needing a new pitcher, the Spartans turned to Mizrahi, who provided a pleasant surprise. Mizrahi pitched his first no-hitter of his career and struck out 11 to lead La Cañada to a 10-0 victory.
