Joyce Simmons Peña went to her final rest after a short illness. She was preceded in death by her husband, Joe Claude Peña, her parents, Jesse Theodore and Alta Simmons, and her sisters, Joan Simmons and Mary Sue Prout-Wiley. She was born June 20, 1932 in Rexburg, Idaho, but spent most of her life in Southern California. She was a real estate broker, and for many years headed her own firm, Oakwood Enterprises, based in La Cañada-Flintridge. The Peña's retired to La Quinta, CA, where they spent their final years together enjoying the sunshine and their hobbies, including collecting celebrity autobiographies and other memorabilia, taking courses at the local adult education center in topics such as creative writing and desktop publishing, volunteering for community events and charity golf tournaments, and keeping up with old friends; this despite Joyce's being seriously injured in a fall that left her a hemi-quadriplegic.

The Laguna Beach High football team is 2-0, but head coach Jimmy Nolan hasn't been very impressed with his team. He wasn't even pleased by last Friday's 38-13 road win over La Quinta, which came on the heels of a season-opening 40-19 victory over Centennial of Compton. Nolan didn't mince words. "Since I have been at Laguna Beach High School, I have never been so angry with my boys as I was Friday night," he said. "We continue to fumble the ball, miss assignments, line up wrong, etc. I believe we dropped more passes than we caught, and those were passes that were touchdowns.

Erik Boal CERRITOS -- Although both have a lot to deal with in preparation for their respective CIF Southern Section Division III first-round matchups, the members of the Crescenta Valley and La Canada boys' water polo teams probably couldn't help but notice the opposite half of each other's bracket. Yes, the Falcons still have to get past a strong La Serna squad and the Spartans will have their hands full with a much-improved Don Lugo team, but should both teams emerge victorious Thursday at Pasadena City College, they can look forward to facing each other in Saturday's quarterfinals.

GLENDALE ? Once more, the Women?s Open Singles title fell out of the grasp of Glendale?s Maureen Diaz. For the fourth time and the third straight year, Diaz marched her way into the singles final of the 109th annual Ojai Valley Tournament, but found the same result, this time against a familiar opponent, as La Quinta?s Pamela Montez outlasted Diaz, 4-6, 7-6 (7-3), 6-2, on Sunday morning. Montes, a high school senior, defeated Diaz by a similar 4-6, 6-4, 6-3 score in last season?

GLENDALE — A day removed from a stirring comeback, Brett Kanda figured he had the parts in place to win a Southern California Golf Assn. event for the first time in more than a year. Trying his hand at a new event seemed promising. But Kanda, a La Crescenta resident and 2005 Flintridge Prep graduate, saw his bid to win the inaugural SCGA Match Play Championship end Wednesday afternoon at Sandpiper Golf Course in Santa Barbara. The sixth-seeded Kanda, who will be a redshirt junior at UNLV in the fall, fell to 22nd-seeded Gary Havro, 1 up, in a quarterfinal match.

GLENDALE ? She?s not completely discouraged. In Sarah Salvo?s mind, she?s proven her ability to compete against some of the top golfers from around the country. Salvo turned in another stellar effort Thursday, as she carded a one-under-par 71 during the second round of the PING Phoenix Junior Tournament at Moon Valley Country Club in Phoenix. Salvo, a Glendale resident, will enter today?s final round of the three-day tournament tied for third with a two-round total of 141 along with Rachel Morris of Carlsbad and Andrea Messer of Largo, Fla. Grouped with Danielle Frasier and Cheyenne Woods on Thursday, Salvo finished with two birdies, 15 pars and one bogey on the 6,230-yard course.

GLENDALE — In most cases, a quality first round would be met with enthusiasm. Not so for Sarah Salvo. Fighting the dry heat and a temperature that reached 100 degrees, Salvo fired a two-under-par 70 on Wednesday during the first round of the PING Phoenix Junior Tournament at Moon Valley Country Club in Phoenix. Unfortunately for Salvo, her performance doesn’t have her atop the leaderboard. Salvo, a Glendale resident, finished with five birdies, 10 pars and three bogeys on the 6,230-yard course.
