The more they worked at each drill station, the more Rousey could see noticeable improvements in a short period of time while conducting the third and final week of the fifth annual Northridge Baseball Camp.

A trash truck tipped over on North Verdugo Road across the street from Glorietta Park's softball diamond at about 11:15 a.m. Monday, causing officials to close the 2900 block of the street until about 2 p.m. The trash truck is owned by a private company.

It sounded more like a scary movie to me, like the recently released film "The Ring." Walking into Robbins Bros. at 300 W. Colorado St. for its Women Only pajama party this week, I felt a little lost. There was this huge circle of jewelry cases, with shiny rings and sparkling gems arranged oh-so-enticingly. I'm a little different from most women.

Only Crescenta Valley's Ted Boeke and Michael Russo return among locals who were All-Area selections, as the majority of the local teams' top talent from seasons past has moved on. The graduations and turnover leave major questions as the season has just begun.
