"Climbing Everest" at Burbank's Colony Theatre is the fictional modern-day story of a young woman driven to bring some peace into her shattered life by retrieving her dead brother's body from the slopes of Mount Everest. The performers are uniformly professional, as always. Katie A. Keane as our heroine, the plucky Mallory Falconer, is to be commended for simply memorizing her lines, all two hours and 15 minutes worth. As Mallory's "climbing partner" turned unexpected lover, Aaron Hendry is an absolute delight.

Lolita Harper LA CANADA FLINTRIDGE -- Clinging to a side of a mountain, Ryan Cosley will have to think about every move he makes. Each grip and step must be perfectly placed in order to avoid a long, hard fall. It won't be easy with his palms sweating from nervousness. Ryan, 17, must also remember to not look down. "I am really afraid of heights," the Crescenta Valley High School student said. "Like, really afraid." This week at the Crescenta-Canada YMCA's Teen Leadership Caravan, Ryan will learn to overcome his fear while rock climbing and other leadership training techniques.

Darleene Barrientos An 18-year-old man arrested on suspicion of possessing methamphetamine might be connected to burglaries in La Crescenta and La Canada Flintridge. The man, whose name was not released while the investigation is ongoing, fits a description of a burglar who has hit at least one house in each community, said Sgt. Stefanie Fredricks of the Crescenta Valley Sheriff's Station. The man was detained Monday, along with another unidentified man, for climbing into the window of a house that had been burglarized a few weeks before, Fredricks said.

Marshall Allen LA CANADA FLINTRIDGE -- Clinging about 3 feet above the ground on the climbing wall, Dean Wyrzykowski spidered from hold to hold. Finally, he lost his balance and dropped to the ground, about 10 feet from the finish. Not bad for a 4-year-old. The climbing wall competition is an annual event at the Hogg's Hollow Preschool and Kindergarten Track and Field meet. The school is operated under Director Rose Hogg's philosophy: "If a child can do it, then we help them do it."

It was not typical for R.D. White Elementary students to be at school on a Saturday. And there were no backpacks, no walking whistles, no classes. Instead, for four hours the students had their way with a giant inflatable climbing wall, pedal-powered go-cart racing track and carnival games. This was their fall festival. ?I was so scared to let go and slide down,? 7-year-old Richard Ser-Manukyan said after conquering the climbing wall. His friend and fellow R.D. White second-grade classmate Edward Khashedorian, also 7, were quick to put their expedition in context ?

APPLE VALLEY - Before the season began, Flintridge Prep girls' soccer Coach Esteban Chavez wasn't sure what to expect of his young team. The Rebels were in line to field a team dotted with freshmen and sophomores, sprinkled in with some juniors and seniors. Shortly after Flintridge Prep saw its season conclude Wednesday with a 4-0 road loss against Granite Hills in a CIF Southern Section Division III second-round match, Chavez praised his squad. “We came a long way in short time,” said Chavez, whose team finished 14-5-5 after placing second in the Prep League behind top-seeded Pasadena Poly.

Big things will again be expected of Emile Ohanyan. Fresh off two straight semifinal appearances in the Pacific League Tournament, the Hoover High boys' singles tennis player will look to cap his career with a league championship and help the Tornadoes advance to the playoffs for a fourth consecutive season. It's a challenge, one that Hoover Coach Julie Hoppe said Ohanyan can accomplish. "Emile has gotten bigger, stronger and more confident," said Hoppe, a former All-Area Boys' Tennis Coach of the Year.

If it's to indeed be the final season coaching the Glendale Community College men's tennis team, then Bob MacKay is confident he might have his best squad in tact since taking over the program in 2003. MacKay, who said he will likely retire following the 2014 season, hasn't normally carried more than around 10 players on a team in each of his previous seasons. He's about to make an exception after heading down the recruiting trail and netting several former local high school players to help fill out the budding roster.

LA CRESCENTA - Perhaps one of the odder aspects of the 2012-2013 boys' soccer season, at least locally, was the absence of a championship team or contender. Powerhouse Crescenta Valley High and St. Francis made earlier-than-expected postseason exits, while Flintridge Prep, Glendale and Hoover highs continued to focus on progress. As the season begins, all five teams talked about taking steps to rectifying the lack of a crown. “I'm excited because we have five solid starters back from last season,” Crescenta Valley Coach Grant Clark said.

LOS ANGELES - That the Holy Family High School softball team qualified for the playoffs is a victory unto itself. Considering there are no seniors on the Gaels' team and only one junior, that's a whole lot of freshmen and sophomores taking the field. Thus, there may indeed be a silver lining underneath Tuesday afternoon's postseason loss. “I know because I've seen it, from the beginning of the year to the end of the year how they've progressed in so many ways,” said Holy Family sophomore shortstop Ginnes Paladini.

LOS ANGELES - For the second game in a row, the Crescenta Valley High boys' basketball team found itself in a quick double-digit hole. Unlike the Falcons' CIF Southern Section Division I-A semifinal game at El Toro, they managed to climb back into serious contention - within two, six and eight points - in their CIF State Division I tournament opener at Crenshaw High. The result was the same for CV, however, as a handful of poorly timed turnovers helped end its season with an 89-74 loss Wednesday night.
