Hamlet Nalbandyan SOUTHEAST GLENDALE -- Twelve months ago, Steve Snodgress was in Kirt Kohlmeier's shoes. It was his Nitro team that was one win away from clinching a postseason berth going into the season finale, only to watch painfully as Kohlmeier's Tornadoes spoiled the party. Thursday night, Snodgress and company returned the favor with a 74-65 Pacific League triumph at home, ending Hoover's chance at making the CIF Southern Section Division IAA playoffs.

Edgar Melik-Stepanyan Somewhere between the time the swimmers leaped off the starting blocks and the end of a record-breaking race, Maryann Boosalis knew that for at least one day, someone else was better in the 100-yard breaststroke. No one was better than the La Canada High girls' swimmer for the past two years, as she won two straight CIF Southern Section-Toyota Division II titles at Belmont Plaza. But on Saturday, only one athlete was better, and that's all that mattered.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE ? Pulling out enough wins over the last week of the season to make the playoffs was already a tall order for the Flintridge Prep baseball team. Back-to-back games within a span of four days against the class of this year?s Prep League, Pasadena Poly, made it virtually impossible. Flintridge Prep was steam rolled by the Panthers on Friday afternoon at the Glendale Sports Complex, 20-0, accounting for the second shutout suffered by the Rebels at the hands of their archrival this week after a 5-0 loss on Tuesday.

I 've never tried soaking in a sensory deprivation tank, but from what I understand, it transports your mind to a place free of the daily stresses of life. The lightless, soundproof isolation chamber in which subjects float in salt water at skin temperature puts the body in a deeply relaxed state. Researchers have found isolation tanks ideal for treating health problems like anxiety, chronic pain, insomnia and jet lag. That kind of experience is the closest thing I can think of to describe what I felt while watching J-Walt's new show, "The Omnicentric Universe: A Spontaneous Fantasia."

Alex Coolman CITY HALL -- Some members of the City Council are pushing for a reexamination of the way the city spends its "public benefit" electric tax money, arguing that too much of that cash pool ends up trickling down to consultants and administrator salaries. Councilmen Bob Yousefian and Frank Quintero lingered over the issue at this week's council meeting, holding up a vote on a small public benefit program until they got assurances that a study session would be held to look in depth at where the public benefit money goes.

Running backs Sam Dodge and Evan King ran rampant behind the blocking of Kyle Cota, Bob Baggot, Brendon Costi, Cameron, Chris Raidy and center Taylor McClure-Hurley.

Two of my all-time favorite students, presently seniors and best friends, are not speaking to each other. They are suffering from a condition that afflicts mostly adults, but is not unknown to pre-adults. They won't forgive each other. They're not on speaking terms. They both "have their reasons," and neither will "back down." The two of them, even at their young age, are more determined to be right than be happy, and so they aren't talking. Does this sound familiar to any of you older and wiser folks who have taken an unforgiving stance on certain people in your lives?

The day you get laid off usually starts like any other. But it sure ends differently. When I’m not waxing rhapsodic in this column each week, I work in the entertainment industry full time. Or at least I did. Until two weeks ago. After overseeing the layoff of several colleagues, hearing things like “economic downturn,” “declining revenues” and “difficult cutbacks” repeated to each, I moved from one side of the table to the other. Terminator to terminatee.

A petition to repeal a 7% tax tacked onto Glendale utility bills failed to garner enough signatures to make it onto the April 2015 ballot. The petition to get rid of the utility users tax , which has been on the city's books for more than four decades, fell 198 signatures short of the required 2,192 signatures necessary to get on the ballot, according to a city statement released Tuesday. -- FOR THE RECORD: An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated enough signatures were not collected for the June ballot.

RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA - Thoughts of an upset for the St. Francis High basketball team fizzled away in just a little over five minutes Saturday evening. The Golden Knights' one-time seven-point lead reversed into a seven-point deficit from which they did not recover, despite a valiant, in a season-ending 74-66 loss at Santa Margarita Catholic High in the CIF State Division III playoffs second round. With the victory, the third-seeded Eagles (25-8), the CIF Southern Section Division III-AA champions, advanced to the Southern California semifinals on Tuesday at Los Angeles Cathedral.

While last weekend's wet weather was a welcome reprieve , it wasn't enough to wash away a statewide drought that is tracking close to the worst one ever in California's history, said a representative from Glendale's water supplier on Monday. And although Glendale's main water supplier, Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, has cobbled together enough water from several sources, including reserves, to get through the 2014 “water year,” which began in October, mandatory conservation measures are a possibility in the future if reserves get too low, Metropolitan engineer Demetri Polyzos told the Glendale Water & Power Commission.

With journeys and destinations reversed, so too was the end result for the Crescenta Valley High girls' soccer team on Friday afternoon. A season after having opened the playoffs with a first-round home victory over San Luis Obispo, the Falcons made the long trek north and came up on the losing end against the Tigers, 4-0, in the first round of the CIF Southern Section Division III tournament. “They just play really well together,” said Falcons Coach Jorden Schulz of the Tigers (17-4-3)

LA CRESCENTA - A season that included 20 victories, an undefeated run through the second half of Pacific League play and a share of the program's first league title since 2004 ended for the Crescenta Valley High boys' basketball team Friday evening. The underdog Falcons were just too undersized versus Trinity League-power Orange Lutheran in falling in the first round of the CIF Southern Section Division I-AA playoffs, 59-49. PHOTOS: CV boys' basketball fall to Orange Lutheran in playoffs' first round   “Hey, this is a great team that we played and they come from a very, very difficult league,” Falcons Coach Shawn Zargarian said.

A season ago, Crescenta Valley High's boys' soccer team rallied on the road in the opening round of the playoffs to defeat Placentia Valencia. Once more, the Falcons found themselves in the same place, the same round and in a game with much the same, nailbiting feel. But this time around, it was Crescenta Valley that was left with the sting of a dramatic end to its season, as Valencia prevailed, 1-1 (8-7) in the first round of the CIF Southern Section Division III playoffs on Thursday evening.

LYNWOOD - Last season's postseason run for Flintridge Prep's boys' soccer team ended before it really got going with a shutout loss on the road to Firebaugh High. But this year's squad of Rebels found itself with a shot at redemption, as Flintridge Prep was slated to face the host Falcons once again in the first round of the CIF Southern Section Division VI playoffs. However, redemption was not to be had, as history repeated itself, although not to the same degree as the year before.

Well, the walk on the beach together in six months isn't going to happen after all. We lost my brother Len on Monday following an illness that took him down with warp-speed . Basically six weeks, from “I'm not feeling so good” to a withered shadow. “It's a blessing he didn't hang on and suffer for months,” everyone comforts. And, of course, it's true. We honored him by letting him go when he was ready. But as it reaches the end, that knowledge doesn't make the reality any less harrowing.

A group of university researchers working with some Facebook folks have recently determined that I'm not a dinosaur. Not yet, at least. Copy editors like me, who for years have been watching our hard-earned grammar skills get discounted with every poorly constructed Facebook post and semiliterate celebrity tweet, could still be useful one, two, possibly three years from now. All those awful grammar errors you see online every day may not be rendering...
