One Burger King in Glendale wants its customers to have it their way - right to their front door. Since April 9, the Burger King on North Central Avenue has been delivering a handful of orders each day - the first Burger King in the state to do so, said franchise owner Bob Stevens. "We were chosen to be the first Burger King franchisee to have delivery in the state, so it's quite a feather in our cap," Stevens said. Following in the footsteps of delivery programs in Miami, Washington, D.C., and Houston, the fast-food company is bringing its delivery program to California.

As a defense-oriented team, the Flintridge Prep girls' soccer program yielded 11 goals in 22 matches this season. While establishing a stingy defensive presence, which saw the Rebels record 16 shutouts, Flintridge Prep needed a bona fide goal-scoring threat to take some of the pressure off the defensive unit. Kaelin King gladly accepted that role and regularly answered the bell. “We knew going into the season that our defense would be one of out strongest points and a lot of games would be close, but we needed to find a way to score some goals, too,” said King, who finished with a team-high 20 goals en route to being named the Prep League's Offensive Most Valuable Player.

BURBANK - Whether competing in the Mission League or not, the St. Francis High basketball team has yet to break a bad habit of playing one poor quarter a game. Its played a direct role in several close losses throughout most of the first half of the season for the Golden Knights and resurfaced Monday against Servite in a Martin Luther King Day Showdown game at Providence High. “There's a quarter almost every game in which we have trouble,” said St. Francis co-Coach Ray O'Brien, who saw Servite's Louis Juego make a game-winning three-point shot with 5.9 seconds left to give the Friars a 44-43 victory.

For Larry King, the death of Osama bin Laden provided an awakening. The veteran talk show host had been nudged toward the door by CNN in 2010 after 25 years of interviewing such titans as Frank Sinatra, Tom Cruise and Barack Obama. After that, King had been giving inspirational speeches in far-flung countries, doing an occasional stand-up comedy routine and taping a few TV specials for CNN. One was supposed to run on a Sunday in May 2011. King had dinner guests over that night for a viewing party.

The Los Angeles Kings have won their first NHL Championship after 45 years of being in existence. While not a rabid fan, I have followed the Kings all of my life. I would listen to the games on radio with Bob Miller announcing them (he still does).  We long-time Angelenos are extremely fortunate (and spoiled) to have had the best basketball announcer of all time, Chick Hearn, the best baseball announcer, Vin Scully, and Miller. Both Chickie Baby and Vinnie have enjoyed several championships; now Bob gets to join the club.
