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.

Gary Moskowitz Geometry and chemistry classes aren't going so well for Manushak Kbjian this semester. Fall semester finals at Clark Magnet High School begin next week, so the 16-year-old junior is spending a lot of time this week at peer tutoring sessions to help her prepare. Manushak and nearly 50 other students sit down at round tables in the school's auditeria every day for about 30 minutes of one-on-one help from their peers. The peer-tutoring program has been active on campus for about three years.

I applied for summer school at Crescenta Valley High School the day after they distributed the forms. A lot of kids wonder why anyone would want to take summer school if they weren't being forced to. I really wanted to take chemistry this summer because then I could take drama as an elective during the year. Then, on schedule hand-out day, my counselor said I didn't make it in because my summer school application was turned in too late. They could only accept the first 120 students.

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.

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.

Erik Boal More than 11 years after winning the lone CIF Southern Section boys' basketball title in their school's 40-year history, the five starters on La Canada High's 1991-92 squad still appreciate the value of teamwork. The integral members of the Spartans' Division IIIA championship team -- three of whom are now coaching basketball at various levels and another who recently gave up playing semi-pro ball to focus on other career endeavors -- have no problem admitting that Tom Hofman has boasted lineups that were more talented than their title-winning group.

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]

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.
