Charles Rich Prior to Tuesday's Pacific League match between the Crescenta Valley and Glendale highs girls' volleyball teams, four Glendale students sang the national anthem. About one-third through the national hymn, their singing was drowned out by an official announcement over the school's public-address system. CV then drowned out Glendale by posting a 25-9, 25-15, 25-11 win in a match that took 45 minutes. Senior setter Sandi Soderstrom had 17 service points, and teammate Rachel Gagliardi added five consecutive aces in the second game to propel CV (4-6, 1-0 in league)

I am a 30-year resident of Glendale and wholeheartedly respect and support the pedestrian walkways. However, to all of those drivers who suddenly decide to stop midstream for a pedestrian who decides to jay walk: You are aiding and abetting this jaywalker and more importantly, you are jeopardizing all of the unsuspecting drivers who share the road with you. I have witnessed this several times, the most recent being this past Sunday on East...

Charles Rich PASADENA -- A domino effect drowned the youthful La Canada High girls' water polo team. The Spartans' inexperience showed in large quantities during a 12-11 loss to San Marino in the third-place match of the Rio Hondo League finals at Pasadena City College on Thursday. The painful message that La Canada (8-18, 4-4 in league) didn't qualify for the CIF Southern Section Division III playoffs for the first time since 1998 seeped through the players, who hid their emotions behind their multiple-colored towels while huddled on a concrete walkway.

GLENDALE — More than 300 courthouse workers are expected to be laid off this month, a move officials said will almost certainly affect the local justice system. While the layoff notices are expected to go out March 16, officials have not determined how the cuts will affect each of the county’s 50 courthouses, Los Angeles County Superior Court spokesman Allan Parachini said. However, he said, employees hired since July 1 will likely be laid off. The Glendale and Burbank courthouses experienced cuts in 2002, Parachini said.

Peter Samore TUJUNGA FIELD -- Jeremy Gonzales of Village Christian School and Chris Garcia of Ontario Christian School had one statistic in common Friday: the starting pitchers each had more strikeouts than they allowed hits, walks and runs combined. The major difference was that Gonzales shut out the Knights, allowing just two hits, as the Crusaders took their CIF Southern Section Division V first-round baseball playoff game, 3-0, at Tujunga Field.

To City Manager Jim Starbird: I am writing to express my opposition to the "go-around circles" that were recently installed on the once beautiful but now unsightly streets of the Rossmoyne area. The recent article in the Glendale News-Press quotes you as saying a permanent type of structure will be installed if the go-a-rounds "achieve their purpose and are acceptable to the residents." I have yet to meet one resident in this neighborhood who finds them acceptable!

GLENDALE — A cadre of new administrators in the Glendale Unified School District was announced Thursday, marking a wave of new leadership at both district and school levels. The announcement also characterizes the broader shift of an aging workforce in the school district, said Dreda Lutz, director of human resources. "There are quite a few openings this time," Lutz said. "And this has come up before. We are getting more and more administrators that are getting to the age of retiring.

MOORPARK — The game film will be queued up first thing today and Flintridge Prep first-year football Coach Antonio Harrison will have plenty to say to his players. Harrison's first issue will likely focus on the Rebels' inability to tackle. It proved to be the weak link during Prep's 46-20 nonleague road loss to Grace Brethren on Friday night at Moorpark College. Prep's defenders had plenty of opportunities to make tackles, but Grace Brethren escaped and found its way to the end zone for six second-half touchdowns.

CITY HALL — Difficulties in repairing a portion of Cavanagh Road damaged during the destructive 2005 rainstorms that have increased the cost of that project by almost $80,000 has forced the city to cover the increase until reimbursed by the federal government. The City Council on Tuesday approved funds to cover the increased costs that started to add up after workers discovered bedrock beneath a planned retaining wall was deeper than indicated in a soil report prepared by outside consultants.

PASADENA — Whether the St. Francis High baseball team’s bats stay hot and its pitching steady when Mission League play rolls around next week remains in question, obviously. But for now, the Golden Knights are rolling, having dismantled their last two opponents, including Tuesday afternoon’s 12-3 pummeling of visiting Sierra Vista in an Arcadia Elks Tournament contest at Jackie Robinson Field. “Every game, we get better and better,” said St. Francis junior designated hitter Ryan Pires, who was one of five Golden Knights with multiple hits.

City officials on Tuesday unanimously approved a five-story building for the Los Feliz Boulevard gateway into Glendale that will include a Korean supermarket, other retailers and professional offices. Mitaa Plaza, on Los Feliz Boulevard near San Fernando Road, also would have a nine-story, 597-space parking garage. Two floors of the parking garage would be below street level, as would be one floor of the commercial building. Members of the City Council, acting as the Redevelopment Agency, praised the project and said they expected it to be a catalyst for more investment along the city's southern edge.

Council's action is bad for hillsides As a Glendale resident, I'm appalled to learn that once again, the City Council is contemplating dismantling existing law to allow builders to develop more lots in the hills and canyons ("Council shuts down appeal," Thursday). The hillside ordinance was written with the common-sense notion that some lots are too small, too steep or are otherwise unsuited for development. Council members ought to take a brief fieldtrip to the over-developed, crowded and ugly portions of the Hollywood Hills as they contemplate gutting the well-considered rules for development in our city.
