For more than three months now, engineers at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory have been unable to free the Martian rover Spirit from a patch of powdery soil that has ensnared the golf cart-sized machine since May 6. Engineers have been troubleshooting with a prototype in an effort to find some way of dislodging the rover. On June 30, engineers filled an elevated ramp full of soil that simulated the Martian terrain in which Spirit has found itself embedded. “It is a very difficult problem,” said John Callus, project manager for Spirit and its twin rover, Opportunity.

LA CAÑADA — Engineers at Jet Propulsion Laboratory in La Cañada Tuesday filled a ramp full of powdery earth and slowly rolled a test rover onto the geological cocktail as they tried to simulate the rover Spirit’s unfortunate circumstance on Mars. Since May 6, the golf cart-sized Spirit has been embedded in an area on the west side of what scientists have named “Home Plate” on Mars. The rover’s wheels can still rotate but slip in the soft soil, so engineers won’t move it until they work out an extraction plan on Earth.

As the graduating class of Glendale High School walked off Moyse Field, a group of about 10 students spontaneously ran a lap around the track. It was a reminder of the school's spirit that graduation speakers said will lead them to success in life. "We have a free spirit, rebelliousness," said 18-year-old Ani Antanesyan, who was panting from her short run. "We just did it. It's over. Yeah!" A crowd of adoring parents and friends packed the bleachers looking over about 650 students garbed in their school colors — the boys in black gowns and the girls in red gowns.

  Heather Lynís Donovan was a friend to everyone. She was a free spirit with a contagious smile, a kind heart, and an unforgettable laugh. She was strong, sensitive, smart and caring. Heather loved to have fun with her friends and family, and she had a zest for life that very few people have the privilege to possess. A beautiful person inside and out, her life was taken too soon. Heather graced us with her presence on April 12, 1973 and walked away with God on Monday, September, 12, 2011.

Fernandez, DeLange hardly saviors for shelter's animals The further I read Elizabeth Duvall's letter on Aug. 5, the more disgusted I became. To this Fred DeLange and Chrissy Fernandez, I can only say this: Helpless animals, be they new and tiny or aged, couldn't possibly be doing worse regarding the humans charged with their care. Typically, your concern for animals is strictly lip service, and my heart bleeds for any animal that winds up, for whatever reason, under your jurisdiction.

Rima Shah Gina Griem was known as a "bohemian" pastor's wife with a fondness for flowing Victorian dresses, throwing tea parties, waist-length blond hair and rock 'n' roll boots. Then she was picked to be on the Style Network makeover show, "How Do I Look," which airs at 9 p.m. every Monday. The Tujunga resident and wife of Bryan Griem, pastor of Light on the Corner Church in Montrose, is now a mini-celebrity among friends and known for her snazzy new wardrobe, her short brown hair and her rediscovered chutzpah.

Charles Rich The temperature isn't the only hot item making news around Glendale. Stroll over to Stengel Field, and there's the Glendale Community College baseball team that's begun to put the pieces of the puzzle together in temperatures that have hovered around 100 degrees. GCC scored five eighth-inning runs, and extended its winning streak to seven with a 5-0 home victory against L.A. Mission College in a Western State Conference Southern Division game.

Movies that might garner Academy Award nominations have been few and far between this year. "The Constant Gardener" is not without its flaws, but this thought-provoking political thriller should get some serious Oscar attention. It boldly explores the dark and ugly corners of the new world order as it plays out in the hopeless populations of Central Africa. Rachel Weisz is perfectly cast as a free-spirit activist seeking to expose the evils of drug-company experiments in the Third World.

Erik Boal It took all of about three innings for the prospects of an all-Crescenta Valley Little League final in the Tri-Cities Major Softball Tournament to diminish Tuesday night. And you could say that the Cars N' Colors Cruisers played the role of spoiler by walking in the back door. The Tujunga representatives took advantage of 11 walks against Western Studios pitchers Tayler Heurkins and Tara Thomas before collecting their first hit and spoiled their opponent's attempt to secure a rematch against Parkview Pet Clinic in today's championship game by posting a 13-3 victory in the tournament's second-chance bracket final at Scholl Canyon Park.
