Glendale second-year Coach Jon Keefer said. ?We need to figure it out, we?ve got [Pacific] League coming up.? For Glendale (2-6), it was their third straight loss, all of them coming by 10 runs or more.

Charles Rich LA CANADA FLINTRIDGE -- A.J. Wickersham stood calmly on the goal line with a precise view. Then the memories circulated through the mind of La Canada High boys' soccer goalkeeper, who would face a bevy of penalty kicks. Wickersham stopped a final penalty kick by Lester Mazeriegos to help La Canada advance to the quarterfinal round of the La Canada Holiday Soccer Classic on Monday night. La Canada and La Puente finished in a 1-1 tie through regulation, but the Spartans edged the Warriors, 7-6, on penalty kicks.

Charles Rich GLENDALE -- La Canada High softball Coach Bart Dickins should be so fortunate. He's got a luxury that most other squads don't posses: a suitable No. 2 pitcher. Dickins can't determine if he'll be able to turn to ace pitcher Kelly Kalish, who has been battling a virus called Parvovirus B19 since May 12. The illness, also known as the fifth disease, has kept Kalish (16-1-1) out of action since. If Kalish can't start, Dickins will turn to No. 2 pitcher Danielle Mellin (2-3)

A 17-year-old Glendale motorist was arrested Thursday after police say he intentionally crashed into another driver who was watching him “doing doughnuts” in a parking lot, police said. The motorist, whose name wasn't released because he's a minor, was reportedly driving his GMC truck in circles about 11:42 a.m. in the 1200 block of North Verdugo Road, according to Glendale police. He suddenly drove up to the 42-year-old La Puente driver and his 32-year-old passenger and asked them what they were looking at and whether they were talking about him, police said.

GLENDALE — It’s yet to set in for Dan Scheper. In fact, he’s trying not to even think about it. But when tonight’s Hall of Fame All-Star Football Game at Bassett High in La Puente concludes, Scheper will have played his last football game. “It really hasn’t hit me and I don’t think it will hit me until that final whistle blows,” said the three-year St. Francis High starting offensive lineman. “I haven’t really thought about it much because I’m having so much fun.” Scheper, along with former Golden Knights teammate Kyle Morgan, the Glendale High trio of Arshak Abramyan, Zane Archer and Mario Cruz and the Crescenta Valley threesome of Tanner Farwell, Parker Haleen and Clay Sierra are all part of the West Team, which faces the East when kickoff comes around at 7:30 p.m. For Scheper, Morgan and Cruz, it is their second all-star contest of the summer after playing on the victorious West squad in the Valley Youth Conference East-West All-Star game on June 15. That game, coupled with tonight’s, have given Scheper a rare chance to get in a few extra snaps before giving up his days on the gridiron, as he will attend Notre Dame University in the fall, where he intends to play rugby.

La Crescenta resident Jim Luna has done a lot during the past 40 years to maintain his sprawling garden of vegetable plants and fruit trees, but he's seldom had to buy seeds. Instead of going to the store, he lets some of his crops do it themselves, allowing them to grow to the point that their seeds are strong enough to be used for more planting. That is, literally going to seed. PHOTOS: Jim Luna's garden of vegetable plants and fruit trees  The 64-year-old retiree's latest batch of garlic cloves descended from a seed that grew eight years ago. “People seem to think you have to go down to the store and pay $3.75 for seeds.

Even 12 years later, the events of Sept. 11, 2001, sear Americans' memories. In  comments posted on latimes.com , people remember the tragic events of the day -- the moments, both good and bad, heroic and fearful, that are summed up by the numerals  9/11 . It was early morning when the first airplane hit one of the towers of the World Trade Center in Lower Manhattan. On the East Coast, commuters were rushing to their jobs, schools were filling with educators and students. It seemed an ordinary day until 8:46 a.m., when it wasn't.

LA PUENTE ? For anyone watching the East take on the West in Friday night?s Hall of Fame All-Star football game at Bassett High, the most lasting memory of the West?s 34-14 victory was likely West and former South El Monte High receiver Tommy Cogburn?s electrifying 178-yard, three-touchdown performance. For the players, however, some taking part in their final football game, the personal significance of the cool summer evening on the gridiron runs deeper than statistics and big plays, and the memories of every single down they spent on the field Friday figure to remain vivid for some time to come.
