Erik Boal Any time St. Francis and Sherman Oaks Notre Dame renew their Mission League football rivalry, emotions are always going to run high. But those emotions reached an entirely new level for St. Francis Coach Jim Bonds and his players during Friday night's showdown at Friedman Field. Notre Dame defeated St. Francis, 21-15, but the final outcome was of secondary concern to Bonds after he witnessed one of his players be taken off by an ambulance early in the fourth quarter.

Josh Kleinbaum A 6-year-old boy from La Crescenta remained at Huntington Memorial Hospital on Tuesday, the day after he suffered severe head injuries when he apparently rode his scooter into the path of a sport-utility vehicle. The boy, who was not wearing a helmet, was hit by a Chevy Tahoe about 11:30 a.m. Monday. He was taken to Huntington Memorial in Pasadena by a Los Angeles County Fire Department helicopter. The collision occurred on Fairmont Avenue, just east of La Crescenta Avenue, when the boy rode his scooter out of his driveway and into the street, officials said.

When's the last time you went shopping for children's clothing? Specifically, sports clothing? I just spent nearly $300 at Sports Chalet so that my 9-year-old son could play baseball. And that's with a discount from his coach's company who is helping to pay for the costs. Here's what $300 got me:  pants, socks, belt, undershirt, cap, helmet, helmet guard, fielding glove, batting gloves, bat, cleats, and athletic supporter. Now I don't mind getting my son stuff that he needs. It's just that by the time he plays baseball next year (if he plays baseball next year)

Gary Moskowitz An injury sustained during football practice last month might have temporarily paralyzed James Fletcher and left him with a massive concussion and a bruised brain. But the mishap did nothing to stifle the student's sense of humor. Three weeks after the incident, James is walking and communicating clearly. He misses participating in his Internet fantasy football league, has grudgingly agreed to wear a helmet when he goes snowboarding this winter, and has temporarily put aside his fantasy of riding his bicycle down the Foothill (210)

Children learned how to ride a ramp at a beginning skateboarding class at the Orange Street Skate Park, 229 S. Orange St. The six-week classes are designed to teach children of all ages the fundamentals of skateboarding, including balance, basic maneuvering and a few tricks. They also teach how to use the helmet and how to practice falling safely, recreation leader William De La Cerda said. "Any age is welcome, as long as they're able to balance themselves, just for safety reasons."

Eric Greco rounded the corner of a track at Discoveryland Preschool, repeatedly high-fiving a woman on the sidelines and shouting, "arggg." The woman was his mother and the 4-year-old, sporting an orange helmet and track pants with an orange racing stripe down the side, rode his bike with about 35 other pre-schoolers on a make-shift course in the school's parking lot.

Keith Hamm If I want to play football, soccer, basketball or baseball in Verdugo Park, I don't need to sign a liability waiver, put on a helmet or wait for a paid monitor to wave me through a gate. And I don't need to pay. But I'm not a ballplayer. I'm a skateboarder. Verdugo Park has a skate park -- one of the best in greater Los Angeles. So I'll sign the waiver. I won't jump the gate during off hours. I'll wear my helmet. That's fine. I'll follow the rules.

Darleene Barrientos Before taking presents like scooters, skateboards, bicycles or roller-blades for a spin, don't forget to put on knee and elbow pads and a helmet. The Glendale Police Department wants to remind parents to buy, in addition to the recreational toys themselves, the appropriate safety equipment for them. Wearing a helmet on a bicycle reduces injuries by 80%, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. "It's universal across all these types of equipment that helmets should be worn," commission spokesman Scott Wolfson said.

DON MEREDITH I am sure that William Shakespeare never imagined his famous words would be used in a traffic-safety article. Then again, Mr. Shakespeare was never a pedestrian, motorist or cyclist on the streets of Glendale. If Mr. Shakespeare were to write today, he would probably alter his question, "To be or not to be?" It would become "To live or not to live?" This is a question I ask myself when I witness the decisions some people make. As parents, friends and neighbors, we give gifts to one another.

A group of second graders at Verdugo Woodlands Elementary School could barely stay in their seats Wednesday as they waited to try on a 30-pound fire-resistant turnout coat and a helmet. Firefighter David Flynn and his wife visited Lisa Haug's second-grade class for a question-and-answer session with fascinated students. He arrived carrying all of his protective gear — fire-resistant turnout coat, helmet, oxygen tank and gas mask. After the question-and answer period, all 20 children got to try on the firefighter's coat and helmet.

It was the day after Christmas and I was sitting and moping, just waiting, waiting, waiting for the Apple Cart to reopen. Meanwhile, back at Starbucks, I was about to order a chai triple grande decaf, when she arrived — the Anonymous Source, an attractive lady in her early 40s. She arrived on the world’s fastest production motorcycle — the Vincent Black Lightning. In 1948 the Vincent HRD Black Lightning hit a record straight away speed of 150.313 mph to break Harley Davidson’s record.

Mark R. Madler With hours to go until dawn, Scott Floren arrived so early for the 21st annual Love Ride on Sunday that he beat event officials to the preferred parking lot. That's how Floren, of La Crescenta, ended up at the head of the thousands of motorcycle enthusiasts taking part in the ride that raises money for several charities and ends with a celebration and concert at Castaic Lake. "It's been a tradition to be at the front of the pack," said Floren, who was riding for the sixth year.
