A day after the somber national remembrance of the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks, survivors of one of the worst railroad disasters in U.S. history are holding a memorial of their own. On Sept. 12, 2008, Metrolink 111 was scheduled to arrive in Simi Valley at 4:23 p.m. But the train crashed in Chatsworth, just a few miles from the Simi Valley station. Twenty-five people died, including the engineer who was later determined to be texting when he failed to stop at a warning light.

BURBANK - Most of the Crescenta Valley High boys' basketball players are in uncharted territory. That's not necessarily a terrible position to be in with plenty of starting spots up for grabs. With the pending graduation of four key players who led the program to the state playoffs in March, players like Narbeh Grigorian are aware of what's at stake in looking to crack the starting lineup next season. Grigorian appears to have gotten a head start. He finished with a team-high 13 points, including two three-pointers in the fourth quarter, to help Crescenta Valley rally for a 49-45 victory against Chatsworth on Thursday afternoon in a Burbank Summer League game at Burbank High.

Chatsworth used an 18-2 run midway through the fourth quarter to record an 84-75 victory against Flintridge Prep in a pool-play game of the Falcon Classic on Monday night at Crescenta Valley High. Flintridge Prep Coach Garrett Ohara said he could see during the elongated run that the energy spent by the Rebels (1-2) to catch and surpass the Chancellors (3-0) would eventually take its toll. ?I think the game was too fast for a couple of the kids, and we only dressed nine,? said Ohara, who guided the Rebels to the Prep League championship last season.

LA CRESCENTA — Every time the Crescenta Valley High boys' basketball team was on the verge of squandering a big lead, they had an answer inside and outside. Inside the paint and within feet of the basket stood Crescenta Valley 6-4 center Christian Misi, while outside proved to be a haven for guard Cole Currie. The duo proved to be more than reliable for the Falcons when needed most. Misi registered 28 points and 18 rebounds and Currie added 23 points Thursday night to propel Crescenta Valley to a 77-64 victory against visiting Antelope Valley in a pool-play contest of the Falcon Classic.

Three Chatsworth women pleaded not guilty Friday to charges that they brought a gun to Allan Daily High School to scare a 17-year-old student into paying $500 for traffic collision repairs, officials said. Sona Carrillo, 37, Nora Tashchyan, 41, and Goharik Tashchyan, 18, each face one felony count of possessing a firearm in a school zone, according to a Los Angeles County Superior Court criminal complaint. At about 4:40 p.m. Wednesday, the trio reportedly went to the high school in the 200 block of North Kenwood Street to threaten the girl and collect $500 they claimed was owed to them due to a traffic collision that occurred a few days before in North Hollywood, Glendale Police Sgt. Tom Lorenz said.

Good morning, readers. Today is Friday, June 29, 2012. It's been a hot week. Temperatures surpassed 80 degrees and I found myself making excuses to stay indoors. But is the city "ugly" in this climate? That's what Times columnist Hector Tobar explores in his article about summertime in Los Angeles . "Even the most loyal Angeleno can wonder: Do I really want to keep on living here?" he writes. Tobar also notes that this is his last column, as he is moving to the books section.

LA CRESCENTA — No more than 10 minutes after the Crescenta Valley High boys' basketball team fell in the championship game of the Falcon Classic on Friday night, Falcons Coach Shawn Zargarian duly listed the reasons as to why his squad fell short. He made it brief and to the point. "No. 1, you can't play catch up against a good team," Zargarian said after the Falcons suffered a 78-69 loss to Chatsworth. "You can't come out flat to start the second half and you've got to get defensive stops, which we couldn't get done.
