Erik Boal GLENDALE -- Mike Huber will make his annual trip to Claremont-McKenna-Scripps College on May 7 for the CIF Southern Section Division II diving final. And the fourth-year coach could wind up returning to La Crescenta with a pair of CIF champions. Huber -- who has established the Crescenta Valley High boys' and girls' diving program as one of the best, and deepest, in Southern California -- returns with a confident, experienced lineup that has its sights set on scoring a lot of points at this year's championship.

LONG BEACH ? No disqualifications, no ineligible swimmers and no controversy. There was no denying the La Cañada High boys' swimming and diving team of a CIF Southern Section Division II championship on Saturday. A year after having the title stripped away because of a rule infraction, the Spartans obliterated the competition at the Long Beach Belmont Plaza. La Cañada won the meet's first event and added another individual title later in the evening en route to scoring a division-record 329 points to walk away with the program's first swimming and diving championship in school history.

GLENDALE — Crescenta Valley High diver David Corless had a career day on Tuesday, but once again the presence of a familiar and dominant foe blocked his path to a CIF title. Corless compiled a career-high score of 495.30 in 1-meter diving on Tuesday at the CIF Southern Section diving finals at Westlake High to finish second in Division II behind the two-time defending champion John Geyer of La Cañada (592.60). It was the second straight runner-up finish in Division II for the Falcons senior, who scored a 409.80 last year.

Chuck Benedict He may be well remembered for his seven year stint as an expert member of the Glendale Planning Commission, but Gary Tobian also is one of the top athletes in Glendale history. Like many other Olympic Games heroes, Tobian doesn't wear his gold medal or his two silver medals on his sleeve, but he is a historic model for young divers who have ambitions to be platform and springboard champions. Born in Detroit in 1935, and a Southern Californian from the age of three, Tobian moved to Glendale in 1958, at the mid-point in his span of competition in a demanding sport.

LONG BEACH ? La Cañada High boys' swimming and diving Coach Steve Neville said winning a championship was an indescribable feeling. Spartan swimmer Devon Borisoff said it was redemption for what happened a year ago. And Spartan senior Andrew Nguyen said it was a special accomplishment. A year after having to relinquish the California Interscholastic Federation Southern Section Division II championship because of a rule infraction, La Cañada dominated its way to a title.

Erik Boal When asked to handicap her odds of winning the CIF Southern Section Division I girls' diving title, Marisa Samaniego -- being her usual humble self -- said she would just like to finish among the top six competitors. Having been hampered for the past month by a nagging left ankle injury -- which she relies on heavily to push off the springboard -- the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy sophomore admits she isn't at 100%, and doesn't know if she'll be able to seriously challenge for the crown.

GLENDALE — The San Francisco Giants turned to Freddy Sanchez last season to help them win the World Series. If the Giants are to repeat as champions, they'll likely have to do so without the services of the former Burbank High and Glendale Community College standout. Sanchez, a second baseman and a former National League batting champion, suffered a dislocated right shoulder while diving for a ball Friday during San Francisco's 3-2 home win against the Cincinnati Reds. The Associated Press reported the three-time All-Star might miss the remainder of the season and possibly require surgery.

BURBANK — The number of passengers at Bob Hope Airport dropped 5% in March, confounding officials who on Monday said the decline was greater than expected. The loss of 7,497 passengers compared with the same period last year was 2% lower than what had been budgeted for, and likely contributed to a drop in parking revenues, which fell about 7.6%, or $129,000, according to a report to the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority. “Well, we haven’t seen the bottom yet,” said airport Executive Director Dan Feger.

The article in Friday's Glendale News-Press quoted Fred Jackson on the three Es of education, engineering and enforcement (“Metrolink targets Doran crossing,” Jan. 28). Quite a few years ago, when speed bumps and traffic circles were being installed along Mountain Street and in the area, I sat next to an Alabama traffic engineer on a flight to Birmingham. I asked him to comment on the massive project, and he told me about the three Es. But he listed them in a different order and said it was too bad Glendale was resorting to the expensive engineering before giving education and enforcement a chance.

DOWNTOWN — Year-end profits for the parent company of Glendale-based Nestle USA fell 42% to $9.6 billion in 2009, company executives reported Friday. Nestle SA, the world’s largest food and beverage corporation, employs about 1,600 workers at its U.S. headquarters in Glendale and has a national staff of about 22,000. The $7-billion hit came after a surge of income in 2008 from the sale of a 26% stake in eye-care firm Alarcon, skewing a direct comparison to 2009, Nestle executives said during a news conference Friday.

CITY HALL — The City Council on Tuesday held off on giving design approval for the planned public pool slated at Pacific Park after some council members expressed reservations about the size of the deck building. While the pool’s six-lane, L-shaped design won praise on the dais, some council members said they were concerned the design of the associated building was extravagant and not cost effective — especially at a time of deep citywide budget cuts. “My first take on this in terms of the actual building is that it is way, way too much,” said Mayor Frank Quintero.
