BURBANK — The new-look Glendale High girls' basketball team has spent the summer thus far working on integrating its new additions with its returning pieces. On Tuesday, the Nitros performed smoothly enough to give Valencia a good run before losing, 55-43, in Burroughs Summer League play. "Compared to the last game, we actually woke up today and saw the importance in beating Valencia," said Glendale Coach Tania Adary, whose team was coming off a loss to Blair. "We were definitely still in it in the second half, but after [the Vikings]

Tenenbaum attributed the missed appearance to a scheduling mix up, and said Salas was not required to attend since the alleged offense is a misdemeanor.

Edgar Melik-Stepanyan Change of heart: Less than 24 hours before his team's nonleague game against Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy, Glendale girls' basketball Coach Fred Babadjanians had already drawn up new sets and plays for his team to try. Pacific League play was right around the corner for Glendale and Babadjanians' team was set to play its final nonleague game. Unfortunately for Babadjanians, the Nitros never got the chance to face the Tologs because of a scheduling mix up at the Tolog gym. Tolog Athletic Director Betsy Sauer informed Coach Erik Ross on Tuesday that Wednesday's game couldn't be played at the Flintridge Sacred Heart gym because of a father-daughter dance.

When contractors tore up the sidewalks in front of her store on Honolulu Avenue, Tender Treasures owner Gerry Puhara closed the shop and took her staff on a tour of the fashion district in Downtown Los Angeles to meet suppliers. Next door, Maureen Palacios, the owner of Once Upon a Time bookstore, tried to make the best of a bad situation, holding an "un-sidewalk sale" in which all books starting with 'D,' as in "dust and dirt" were 10 percent off. Jennifer Grafius, manager of Slender Sweet Shoppe at the corner of Honolulu Avenue and Verdugo Road, became increasingly frustrated when an expected three day project stretched to nine days without a sidewalk.

An artsy coffee shop is brewing up plans to "Revo-lutionize" the image of quaint and quiet Adams Square. But it is not nearby residents' cup of tea. Revo Art and Jazz Café reopened in early January after about two months of renovations. The changes are no revolution for Revo, but they might be for Adams Square, a small commercial district at the foot of Adams Hill in south Glendale. "The last one was just straight coffee shop — art and jazz café," said Aram Manoukian, owner of the Revo café.

GLENDALE — To say Thursday evening’s California Xtreme Fighting event will have a local feel could be an understatement. Glendale will be well-represented in the ring and in the stands when the CXF emanates from the El Monte Expo Center. Headlining the 10-fight event will be Glendale’s own Roman “The Emperor” Mitichyan, who is one of four Glendale-trained fighters that will compete in the event. “It’s gonna be a really good event,” said George Bastrmajyan, who manages the four Glendale-trained fighters on the card and will also likely corner them.

LOS ANGELES - When the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy swimming team took its seat atop the Mission League back last year, it did so with depth. It takes a different approach this year for the Tologs, who relied on their stars of Kirsten Vose, Katie Altmayer, Emily Balog and Kate Herrill to deliver a 99-84 victory over host Harvard-Westlake in a league dual meet Tuesday at Loyola High. That foursome started the meet with a win and CIF Southern Section Division I postseason consideration time in the 200-yard medley of 1 minute, 54.39 seconds and at least one member of that group had a hand in all nine of the Tologs' wins on the day. Flintrdge Sacred Heart won just five events in a 99-77 win over Harvard Westlake last season.

In this column, I sometimes answer reader e-mails to try to help people with their grammar problems. It?s a good gig. I get to play expert and hero all at once. And through the magic of old-fashioned printing, my answers appear immediately after the questions. No one can tell how long it took me to produce them. So the finished product makes me look like a bottomless font of instant answers who never has any questions or conundrums of my own. If only that were true. In real time, there are a lot of grammar and usage issues that trip me up. The good news is I?
