Alecia Foster LA CRESCENTA -- Areg Hayrapetian's eyes lit up as he explained his science project: "The Effect of the Number of Divisions on the Accuracy of the Area." It's a mouthful to say and a bit complicated to explain but Hayrapetian did so with ease. "I like mathematics," he said with a smile. The seventh-grader was one of four students at Chamlian Armenian School who won in the 51st annual Los Angeles County Science Fair. Hayrapetian took third place in mathematics, while Maral Der Sarkissian took first in chemistry, Shant Krikorian took first in physics and astronomy, and Lara Injeyan captured first in engineering research.

What started out as a pairing born of necessity turned out to be quite a luxury. Once Sarah Ali and Talia Moradkhanian joined forces, Crescenta Valley High girls' tennis Coach Sarah Wiggins rarely had to think twice about penciling in three wins atop the doubles bracket before each and every match the Falcons played. The senior duo made its debut in the second match of the year and went on to post a near spotless area-best record of 38-1, while going 24-0 in the Pacific League.

Good and Evil. Nurture versus Nature. Survival of the nicest or survival of the fittest. Morality: our conformity to the rules of right conduct and virtue. It's long been territory only for philosophers, theologians and newspaper columnists looking for a story. Its vagaries, its subjective and speculative nature make it a moving target; impossible to measure for those who require practical evidence. Does morality - a trait present only in humans - come from a spiritual creator?

Longtime La Cañada High boys' tennis Coach Will Moravec assured that if his 2006 Spartan squad was to experience any kind of success, it would be made possible by a strong doubles contingent. The Spartans continued their string of CIF postseason appearances and it was in no small way due to doubles, particularly the senior tandem of Erik Johnson and Jeff Pih. "Usually for La Cañada tennis, it's always been doubles that hold the weight of the team," said Pih, who along with Johnson, posted a 26-7 record this season en route to being voted the All-Area Doubles Team of the Year by the editors and writers of the Burbank Leader, Foothill Leader and Glendale News-Press.

BURBANK ? Now it's time to go on summer vacation. Vacation started for the Glendale High girls' basketball team as soon as it concluded its 48-44 loss to Montclair Prep on Saturday in the Bellarmine-Jefferson Summer Hoop Finale at Bellarmine-Jefferson High. The Nitros will get back to work once school starts in the fall, but in the meantime, they'll enjoy their time off. "[Today] will be the first day that I don't have to do anything basketball related in a long, long time, which is really nice," Glendale Coach Fred Babadjanians said.

From Staff Reports A historical perspective: Leave it to Frank Pace to draw a parallel between one of the most important soccer matches of Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy's season and one of the most significant events in the history of international sporting competition. The Tologs allowed two goals in the first five minutes of their Mission League match Jan. 31 at West Hills Chaminade, both after questionable calls were made in favor of the Eagles, and wound up suffering a 3-0 setback.

A report on the use of the chemical bisphenol-A, a suspected toxin commonly found in soda cans and baby bottles, has given Nestle S.A. a B-plus for its effort to eliminate use of the chemical. The report was commissioned by Green Century Capital Management and As You Sow, which encourage private investors to support only publicly-traded companies that favor safe materials, sustainable energy use and other environmental goals. Nestle, a Swiss company with its U.S. headquarters in Glendale, fared better in the report than large retailers and manufacturers including Costco and Whole Foods, which earned a D grade.

LA CRESCENTA — Tuesday’s home match against West Ranch High provided at least one benefit for a young Crescenta Valley girls’ volleyball team — a dose of experience. It did not come in the form of a victory, as the Falcons were eventually downed, 25-19, 25-17, 25-14. But, the next time they find themselves across the net from a team with size, good hitters and a lineup of strong servers this season, it won’t be the first. “[The Wildcats]

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — One of the things the Flintridge Prep girls’ tennis team is counting on in order to have a successful season is its experience. With 10 returning players and some promising freshman additions to replace the only two seniors lost to graduation, the Rebels began the 2007 campaign with a convincing 13-5 victory over Village Christian at Scholl Tennis Center on Thursday afternoon. “Experience plays a big part in opening the season well,” fourth-year Prep Coach Katie Hawkins said.

The first thing you’ll probably notice upon reading the title of the new play by Burbank’s Colony Theatre Company, "I Have Before Me a Remarkable Document Given to Me by a Young Lady From Rwanda," is its ungainly length. The second thing is that it has the word Rwanda in it. The playwright is very aware that both of these facts could be intimidating. But don’t let either dissuade you from seeing this beautiful, funny and profoundly moving tale of healing and renewal.

Grant Gordon The 2005 Glendale Community College softball team boasts just one returning starter from a season ago. But after a 2004 season that ended with a 9-27 mark and nothing to boast about, perhaps that's a good thing. Right-fielder Cindy Torres is that lone returning starter, but GCC is also the beneficiary of three returning Lady Vaqueros from two seasons ago: Kristen Carr, Bernice Sandoval and Miki Mayorga. That, combined with some big-time bats and improved team chemistry has GCC Coach Dave Wilder excited about the upcoming season.
