I am writing you from the frozen climes of northeastern Pennsylvania with snow flurries in the air and daytime temperature in the 20s. It has been almost one year since I left Glendale, but I will always consider it home. During my over 40 years there I was always interested in civic affairs and the political process, which is the subject of this letter. I am writing regarding the forthcoming election and particularly the office of city clerk. Several years ago I actively supported a candidate for city clerk when the office became vacant.

GLENDALE — Fresh off a fourth-place finish at the CIF State Finals in cross-country, the Crescenta Valley High distance runners are hoping to carry that success over to the track and field season. Led by Claire Collison, Shelby Pock and Rachel Lange, distance races will definitely be a forté for the Falcons this season. "Our strength is in our distance team," Crescenta Valley Coach Mark Evans said. "We are going to score a lot of points in distance." While big points will come via the distance events, the rest of the events have potential to be strong as well.

PASADENA - For seven innings, Crescenta Valley High junior pitcher Brian Gadsby was strong on the mound and his defense was flawless behind him. The Falcons' bats were chiming, as well, but runs were hard to come by in a first-place showdown with host Pasadena. That changed from the fifth inning on, as the Falcons put together six runs over the final three innings to hand the Bulldogs their first league loss and force a three-way tie atop the league standings.

ARCADIA - While top efforts were at a premium at the 47th annual Arcadia Invitational Track and Field Meet, that didn't stop a handful of athletes from Crescenta Valley, Flintridge Prep and St. Francis high schools from thriving Saturday afternoon. Three entrants posted top-five finishes, led by the Crescenta Valley boys' distance medley team. The distance medley event, which calls for a relay format of a 1,200-meter run, 400, 800 and 1,600, was run by the Falcons' foursome of senior Nick Beatty, sophomore Armin Cardenas-Nuno and seniors Matt Manalo and Gabe Collison, respectively.

The following are updates on local athletes at the collegiate level. Elliot Surrey (Crescenta Valley High, 2012) UC Irvine pitcher sophomore: Surrey proved he could dominate on the mound at the high school level, earning All-Pacific League and All-CIF accolades multiple times. Now, Surrey is looking to elevate his talent with an Irvine squad that's gotten off to a strong start. Surrey's last appearance proved to be his best thus far. The left-hander tossed his first complete game of the season Saturday, striking out six and scattering four hits to help propel host Irvine to a 4-0 nonconference win against Grand Canyon University.

Ask any of the five boys' track and field head coaches from Crescenta Valley High, Flintridge Prep, Glendale, Hoover and St. Francis for an assessment and there's a common theme for the schools. Hope is high as are numbers for the teams, who are prepared to challenge in league and perhaps make a deep postseason run. Crescenta Valley enters the season with heavy aspirations within the Pacific League thanks in part to a senior-laden squad headlined by its distance corps and highlighted by Gabe Collison, Nick Beatty, Matt Manalo and Andrew Hart.

WOMEN'S TRACK AND FIELD Glendale Community College at Western State Relays: The Vaqueros put together a strong afternoon of results at Friday's event at Ventura College. Sophomore Justice Shank led the way for Glendale in not only returning to her former greatness, but eclipsing past success in breaking her school mark in the high jump with a leap of 5 feet, 8 inches, which topped her previous best of 5-7 set in 2012. Shank was one of a few Vaqueros to both win her event and set a school record and was joined by the women's distance relay squad, which did so twice.

GLENDALE - While the Glendale High and Hoover boys' basketball teams entered Friday evening's city rivalry game as near equals, they certainly excited Hoover's gym with a gulf between them. The host Tornadoes shot 50% from behind the three-point line and seemed to come up with all the big hustle plays in a 69-49 Pacific League victory. “Games go both ways and this one could have went either way,” said Hoover senior guard Teo Davidian, who led all scorers with 24 points, eight rebounds and two steals.

BORON - Just as the Flintridge Prep football team looked as though it was ready for a shootout with host Boron, everything came to a screeching halt for the Rebels. Down by a score after the teams found the end zone on the game's first three drives, Flintridge Prep saw All-Area standout running back Stefan Smith go to the ground with an injury, the Boron sideline cheer with questionable enthusiasm and the Rebels' offensive firepower take a major hit. The end result was Flintridge Prep never recovering in a 42-14 defeat to Boron and falling to 0-3 in the process.

If the NASA rover Curiosity runs into any obstacles on its trek to a mountain in the middle of an ancient crater on Mars, a new navigation system should steer it to safety. Engineers at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in La Cañada Flintridge have turned on a technology that allows the rover to drive itself. The rover used the system for the first time on Tuesday. The 1-ton rover, which landed on Mars in August 2012, won't be able to take a joy ride on the Red Planet. Rover drivers and scientists who work at JPL will continue to plan its schedule and decide its destination.
