Chris Fries just wants kids and adults to have fun at the park. He wants them to be safe, respect the environment and appreciate the fact that the city of Glendale has 33 parks and 207 acres of land available for just that purpose. Since 1997, when the 33-year-old started as a recreation program specialist for the Glendale Parks, Recreation & Community Services Division, he has never forgotten the simple notion that parks, and the positive things that go on there, are of paramount importance to making any city a good place to live.

David Silva We've all had experiences as children that changed the rest of our lives. For some of us, it was throwing our first baseball and instantly falling in love with the game. For others, it was falling out of a tree and instantly developing a lifelong fear of heights. For me, it was watching "Star Wars" for the first time. I was 13 when "Star Wars" hit the theaters. Having just hit puberty, I ws awkward, confused and socially inept. In short, I was the film's target demographic.

First-year Estancia High coach Brian Barnes, and many of his players, learned much from their varsity football debut last week. But they will have to learn about tonight's opponent, Huntington Park from the CIF Los Angeles City Section, as the game unfolds. Kickoff is 7 p.m. at Orange Coast College. "I haven't heard anything about them," Barnes said of the Spartans, who are opening their season after a 9-2 campaign in 2004 that included an Eastern League championship.

Two games deep into Estancia High first-year football coach Brian Barnes' tenure, and one statistic stands out more than any other: If the Eagles are going to get any sort of offensive production going, a running game must be established. Estancia rushed for 22 yards on 24 carries and fell to visiting Huntington Park, 23-6, in a nonleague contest Thursday night at Orange Coast College. "Definitely the running game needs improvement," said Barnes, whose team posted 2 yards on 21 attempts in a season-opening loss to Corona del Mar Friday.

There was a wicked sense of deja vu in the fact that I didn't have a date for my high school reunion. I had always envisioned a triumphal return to my Huntington Park alma mater. I'd waltz in flanked by an entourage of hangers-on, Heather Locklear under one arm and Madonna under the other. But it was not to be. Still, while the 20 years since graduation have made me no more a ladies' man than before, they have made me a lot more practical about the matter.

DAVID SILVA On the northeast corner of a major intersection in Huntington Park is a small fast-food restaurant -- an orange-gray, greasy-looking joint that looks like it's seen better days but actually never did. No one will ever try to preserve this restaurant as a historic landmark. Its architecture is dull and somewhat dysfunctional -- the drive-through lane is too narrow and the drive-through window so high drivers have to get out and stand to grab their orders.

GLENDALE - Behind a fast start and versus a short-handed opponent, the Glendale High girls' lacrosse team made quick work of visiting La Cañada High in an early Pacific League matchup. The Nitros scored the game's first 10 goals and didn't allow the Spartans an actual shot on goal until 8 minutes and 20 seconds into their match, which ended as a 16-1 victory for Glendale on Tuesday afternoon at Moyse Field. “We've come a long way,” Glendale Coach Joe Campbell said. “Our skills are better than they've been in the past and we're able to play a better brand on the field.

BURBANK — Once the passes arrived in the hands of Emerson Castaneda, he knew precisely what to do with the ball. The more it happened, the more comfortable the St. Francis High basketball player became behind the three-point arc. Castaneda made a game-high six three-pointers Thursday night to spur St. Francis to an easy 63-48 win against Huntington Park in a Burbank Summer League contest at Burbank High. "I was in a groove and the guys knew where to make the crisp passes," said Castaneda, who finished with a game-best 24 points.

Huntington Beach High football coach Mike Groscost, who was an assistant at Costa Mesa for six seasons, said Thursday's 37-14 Oilers victory over the Mustangs was filled with emotions. In addition to fond feelings for the Costa Mesa football program, Groscost was grieving over the death of his father, Bradley, who passed away days before. In honor of Bradley Groscost, Mike Groscost declared the game "Father's Night" and invited the dads of all his players to watch the game from the sideline while wearing jerseys with their sons' numbers.
