“Not last night but the night before, 24 robbers came knocking at my door...” But it wasn’t burglaries happening in the foothills last weekend, but rather a performance by the Palpitating Panthers jump rope team at the Oktoberfest celebration.

As 470 students filed in and out of Thomas Jefferson Elementary School's assembly hall for rope-jumping sessions Thursday, school nurse Linda Jones couldn't help but be proud of her handiwork as she surveyed the activity. Groups of students did 15-minute jump-rope sessions that, through sponsors, raised money for the American Heart Assn.'s annual Jump Rope For Heart event. Some of them blissfully jumped solo ropes in frantic motion, while others waited in lines for long ropes flipped by teachers on each end. "Doing tricks is the best part," 6-year-old Nare Shagbazyan said in between tired breathes.

Hamlet Nalbandyan NORTHWEST GLENDALE -- Mark Walters swears it wasn't the Atkins Diet, or the South Beach Diet, or any diet, for that matter. "Just a lot of hard work," says the 17-year-old Glendale High football player. Which makes sense. Still, it's hard to believe that anyone could lose 60 pounds in one offseason, but that's exactly what Walters did. Last year, as a junior, the 6-foot-2 Clark Magnet School student weighed 285 pounds and was one of the best offensive linemen in the area, earning News-Press All-Area and All-Pacific League first-team honors.
