Erik Boal ALBUQUERQUE -- The Foothill-Tujunga junior softball all-star team encountered a big problem Tuesday in the Little League Western Regionals, and it had nothing to do with an opposing pitcher or hitter. A force much larger than softball decided the outcome of the 13- and 14-year-olds' winners'-bracket final against Oak Park -- Mother Nature. A 15-minute torrential downpour, complete with thunder and lighting, halted the game at Zia Little League Field in the bottom of the first inning, and will be started anew at 3 p.m. MDT today.

Tim Willert Almost 25 years after he and his family cheated death, Scott Genofile still shakes his head in disbelief. "We thought the whole damn mountain came down," Genofile, 40, recalled this week. "We were luckier than hell." In the early morning hours of Feb. 10, 1978, Mother Nature hammered the Markridge Road home of Robert and Jackie Genofile and their two teenage children, leaving a path of destruction in her wake. Back then, the window in Scott's room looked straight up Pine Cone Road, a steep, winding, pine tree-lined street that resembles a ski run. Scott's 18-year-old sister, Kim, called to her mother, who joined her in Scott's room as they looked up the street.

Amber Willard LA CRESCENTA -- Mother Nature, joined by characters like the Earth Goddess and Sky God, will meet Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden later this month. Twenty children, ages 4 to 15, will present the play "Mother Nature in the Garden of Eden: In the Beginning," which was penned by Carol Holst, youth religious education director at the Unitarian Universalist Church of the Verdugo Hills. "Children learn through experience. That's why acting out what the Sky God represents makes the theology stick," Holst said of why she wrote the 20-minute play, and included changes suggested by the children as well.

The small hills we have here in Glendale used to be beautiful and precious to all the residents. The big tractors and trucks are making them more dangerous to live in. So are the greedy investors who don't care how our city looks. Which one will be responsible and liable for any or all the damages a small earthquake will do as it has done in El Salvador? The investors, the owners, the city, the state, or all? They want to build a bigger home than their friends.

Probably a dozen deer were hit by cars and died in the foothills last year. Beautiful, trembling creatures. So what, you say? I was petting one of them, trying to comfort him, looking at his sad eyes and budding antlers, when he took his last breath. I didn't hit him, but it's an experience I'll never forget. Until then, I was only vaguely aware of the effects suburban sprawl has had on our wildlife. So what, you say? People are part of an ecosystem.

Jose Ruiz, Enjoy! GLENDALE -- When three young noblemen and the King of Navarre (Stephen Rockwell) vow to dedicate the next three years to scholarship, fast and study and avoid any contact or distraction with women, you know they're setting themselves up to fail. Who else but four lovely French women show up, and soon Mother Nature takes over to test their resolve. The long fought "guerre d'amour" is delightfully presented by A Noise Within, as director Michael Winters takes one of Shakespeare's "minor" plays and converts it into a major laugh fest.

The carnival was there, the climbing wall and dunk tank, the food, the classic cars, Disney volunteers, exhibitors, entertainers, radio station Movin 93.9, and Mother Nature. Things were actually looking pretty good as the morning progressed, but unfortunately, that changed later. September is not normally a rainy month, but it seems our seasons are surprising us. Along with the many chamber board members that put time and effort into this event, there were businesses that went out of their way to help make this a success.

Despite a round of heavy rain Wednesday afternoon, debris basins were expected to hold and the impact of what forecasters called the worst storm in a decade appeared to be far less than feared. Evacuation orders were lifted 6:30 p.m. Wednesday for as many as 147 homes in La Cañada Flintridge and 85 in La Crescenta. Mostly clear skies are in the forecast for Thursday. It was a near miss for the Station fire burn area, which had been expected to take the brunt of the storm early Wednesday morning.

According to the National Weather Service, it?s supposed to rain again this week. Every time my son hears that there?s rain in the forecast, he asks, ?Will we have to go to a hotel again, Mommy?? I tell him, ?Not this time.? But I know that there?s a good chance we will be evacuated again, if not this year then possibly sometime over the next few years. That?s what the experts have told us to expect. For the kids, our two evacuations in the last six months were mini-vacations.

There is more to the city than controversy Thank you, Alex Theatre, for a wonderful evening. The "Beat it Wally" benefit on Jan. 31 was such a fresh change for Glendale ("It don't get no sweeter," Feb. 1). People came from everywhere to give their support to someone in need. Everything from the music to the ushers was great. I hope this "thank you" can find a spot in the Mailbag. Glendale needs to be put on the map for being a unique artistic community, not just a city with mansions and outdoor grilling.

One of the current world issues that is beginning to command more attention in my classroom is global warming. It is becoming increasingly hard to ignore, despite the fact that our leaders in Washington tell us not to worry, and that only "further study" is required. It's understandable that teenagers are not activated by a topic that warns of future consequences — their lives are filled with such warnings and they are inclined to turn a deaf ear to them. It is less understandable that the people we elect to lead us into the future are similarly inclined.

The decade between 1890 and 1900 is commonly known as the Gay Nineties. A hundred years later, the world experienced 10 years of meteorological calamities that insurance companies have to remember as the Ghastly Nineties. Fires, floods, hurricanes, tornadoes and earthquakes brought claims in staggering numbers to all insurance carriers -- claims that had to be paid so people could rebuild the homes that Mother Nature had destroyed. Throughout the insurance industry, premiums were raised -- not just a few pennies, but quite a few percentages.
