Six years ago Danny Blitz bit through his tongue and cracked an industrial-strength office chair on his way to the floor. Heralded as a ”future icon” by a popular music magazine, the rock musician was selling well, appearing on television and getting radio ads across the country. Suddenly, he couldn’t walk, could barely talk, and his left arm was out of its socket. Worse, his left hand was paralyzed. “Brain cancer,” he said. “I wasn’t supposed to make it.” So began the second act in the life of a self-described “unlikely environmentalist.

The incidents occurred as the planes were on approach into Burbank as a third powerful storm moved into the region, said Marilee McInnis, a Southwest spokeswoman.

With its mascot the Lightning, and two players nicknamed "Thunder" and "Lightning," the Sage Hill School football team has quite the storm brewing this season. But it's not just superfluous nicknames and titles surrounding the team. Sage is off to a 2-0 start, sparked by its thunderous ground game with the two coveted runners. It was "Lightning" that flashed brightest last week, however, earning senior tailback Keya Manshadi Daily Pilot Player of the Week honors.

Edgar Melik-Stepanyan GLENDALE -- The Glendale Knights travel baseball team continued their impressive play at the Dreams Park Invitational in Cooperstown, N.Y., winning both of their games Monday. The Knights -- who won the tournament in 1999 -- defeated the Eastview Lightning, 6-2, in their first game. Colin Sabo led the way offensively against the Lightning collecting two of the Knights' eight hits against the Minnesota-based team. But the story of the game belonged to Knight pitcher Chad Nacapoy.

I have seen and been close to lightning and thunder here and abroad, but never this close. I was at my sister's house in Costa Mesa when thunder rocked the house -- it sounded like the sky burst open. We all jumped up and looked out the window. Another blast lighted up the sky. It seemed like it touched down just blocks away. I, of course, ran for my camera, pointed at the sky and hoped for the best. My nephew and I urged the lightning to blast above our heads once more time for the cameras, as he pointed his video camera into the sky. We knelt, sat, stood back-to-back, stared into the sky. Nothing.

Thunder and lightning struck again for the Sage Hill School football team. Don Ayres (thunder) did his damage on the ground, while Keya Manshadi (lightning) reeked havoc through the air with deep receptions from quarterback Jamie McGee during Sage Hill's 32-8 victory over host Midway Baptist Friday in a nonleague game. Sage Hill Coach Tom Monarch thought his offense was a little one-dimensional the first two weeks of the season. The Lightning ate up mass yardage on the ground, but did little passing.

A lot can change in one year. Sage Hill School football coach Tom Monarch is willing to accept that notion heading into the Lightning's nonleague season opener at 7 p.m. Friday against visiting Fairmont Prep. While Sage demolished the Huskies last season, 35-0, for the program's second shutout in its then three-year history, Monarch believes the situation will be different this year. But then again, the Lightning have also changed in one year -- as in -- gotten more experienced.

Halfway through the match, the Sage Hill School girls volleyball team, with senior outside hitter Cat Dailey leading the way, was cruising in its season opener against host Calvary Chapel. Then Dailey fell hard to the floor after landing awkwardly on her right ankle and sat on the bench the rest of the game with an ice pack around her ankle. The Lightning were no longer in cruise control, but it still had enough to sweep the Eagles, 25-16, 25-16, 25-20, on Thursday night in a nonleague match.

LOS ANGELES - It didn't take long in Saturday's nonleague matinee at Occidental College to see that the Flintridge Prep football team's power running offense was in for a big day versus visiting Sage Hill, which allowed the Rebels three scoring runs of at least 40 yards before the end of the first quarter. The Rebels' didn't fare too poorly on the other side of the ball either, as Prep's six offensive touchdowns and 393 yards of total offense were complemented by a defensive effort that created six turnovers, including an interception return for a score, in a 48-8 romp that saw a running clock with over four minutes to play in the third period.

LA CRESCENTA - A downpour wasn't going to cancel the annual cross-town rivalry game between the Crescenta Valley and La Cañada high girls' soccer teams, but lightning was a different story. The nonleague game Thursday between the Falcons and Spartans at Crescenta Valley High was called off less than nine minutes into the action as lightning started flashing nearby. Referees suspended the action for 20 minutes to see if the lightning would clear up before making a decision. Crescenta Valley Coach Jorden Schulz conferred with La Cañada Coach Louie Bilowitz and both agreed to postpone the game to sometime next week since Crescenta Valley's field doesn't have lights.

A high pressure system in the Southwest, combined with a low pressure system off the coast steered subtropical moisture into Southern California this evening. This provided area residents with rare summer showers and a thunderstorm this evening.  We were sitting in the back yard enjoying an evening bar-b-que and were treated to a wonderful weather display.  I got my tripod and camera and captured several beautiful images.  Read more at Altadenablog.com .

Rumbling thunder and dark clouds are forecast to mark a chance of rain through Saturday, a stark contrast to record heat that stifled the area just a few days ago. Temperatures will remain in the upper-80s to low-90s, but there will also be a 20% chance of rain until Sunday, according to the National Weather Service. The threat of lightning as a result of the thunderstorms has put fire watchers on high alert given the tinder-dry conditions in the foothills. The mix may make planning for several major outdoor events tomorrow challenging.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE — Counterintuitive as it may seem, a lead late in a game seemed to be the last thing either team wanted in Thursday night’s CIF Southern Section Division V second-round playoff game between Sage Hill High and host Flintridge Prep. In two of the first three games, the team that trailed late rallied to win and the Rebels did their best to follow suit with a furious rally in the fourth game after the Lightning began to pull away late. “I told the kids [before the fourth game]

Three girls’ water polo matches, four girls’ soccer contests, one boys’ soccer match and three Glendale Community College events were postponed.
