Jackson Bell When Glendale Police Lt. Don Meredith heard that the force's Explorers program didn't have the money needed to enter a nationwide competition in Hawaii, he started an e-mail fundraiser that better resembled an EBay-like bidding war. It paid off. It all started when Officer Marilyn Cisneros, the Explorers' advisor, told Meredith in late April that the youth group did not have enough money in...

Charles Rich Time will tell if the unpredictable weather in Utah will continue to put a damper on the Pacific Southwest Tournament. However, the inclement weather couldn't have come at a better time for the La Crescenta 13-year-old Babe Ruth baseball team on Friday. La Crescenta built a 6-5 lead against Hawaii after two innings in a second-round game at Babe Ruth Field in Panguitch, Utah, but tournament officials suspended the game and the remaining contests Friday because of lightning in the area.

This is in response to Francis Adams’ letter criticizing President Obama for spending the holidays with his family in Hawaii (“Is Obama doing his job from Hawaii?” Jan. 1). I agree! Who does he think he is, going to warm Hawaii (where he grew up) for his vacation?! Camp David is so much more “fun” sounding, especially in winter. It must be even moreso to his wife and young daughters. It really makes me sick. Imagine, it’s Christmas morning, you’re opening presents with your family (or maybe sleeping in, since it’s only 7 a.m.)

BURBANK — Having spent a week competing in a tournament and living a life of luxury on the beaches of Hawaii, the Flintridge Prep boys’ basketball team returned to California a bit sluggish. The Rebels won the championship game of the Maui Summer Classic on Sunday, then caught a red-eye flight before touching down in Los Angeles early Tuesday. Flintridge Prep didn’t have much time to savor the victory — or get any rest — since it had to get back to playing in summer league tournaments nearby.

Ever since the Pacific Southwest Regional Tournament schedule was unveiled, it was Wednesday's game that loomed largest for the La Crescenta Babe Ruth 14-year-old baseball team. La Crescenta was a late addition to the regional lineup, following another team dropping out, after the locals lost a pair of games to Westchester to finish runner-up in the Southern California State All-Star Tournament. The locals got one more shot at Westchester in their final pool-play game of the Pacific Southwest Regional Tournament at Surprise Stadium in Arizona.

The Glendale Beeline is testing a marquee system very much like the MTA that shows the date and time of day and stop requested. This system also announces the upcoming stops, and greets new passengers when the door is opened. Unlike the MTA’s, the Beeline voice is female, and a bit more pleasant. So, now the Beeline fares are to be raised (“Beeline costs may transfer,” Oct. 1). Why? Are the new fares to pay for the marquee system? It is unnecessary; the drivers are very pleasant, usually greet you as you come on the bus, and call out the stops.

Their involvement in the tournament represents a return to a onetime Falcons tradition that has been dormant for a few years.
