Babe Ruth 13s open tourney with win The La Crescenta Babe Ruth 13-year-old All-Star baseball team saw its offense sizzle in the Arizona heat.

Jackson Bell A 6.6-magnitude earthquake off the coast of Northern California Thursday night was the fourth to rattle the West Coast in a week but was too far away to agitate nearby faults, officials said. Residents are encouraged, however, to be prepared at all times for an unpredictable natural disaster. The quake, centered more than 100 miles east of the coastal city of Eureka, struck at about 10:20 p.m. Thursday, two days after a much larger temblor in that area prompted a tsunami warning.

GLENDALE — In a game that La Crescenta Coach Rick Marquis basically characterized as a knockdown, drag out fight, it was the La Crescenta Babe Ruth 13-year-old All-Stars that were the last team standing. “It was a battle, it was fantastic pitching for both sides,” said Marquis just after La Crescenta defeated host Eureka, 4-2, in the opening round of the Babe Ruth 13-year-old Pacific Southwest Regional late Thursday night at Babe Ruth Field in Eureka. La Crescenta will now play Tri-Valley, the Northern California champions, at 7:30 p.m. tonight.

While sleet and snow cannot stop delivery of the mail, apparently not filing the correct paperwork can halt the playing of a high school football game. A paperwork snafu is the reason Bell-Jeff officials said today's 1 p.m. nonleague game at Los Angeles High has been canceled. Bell-Jeff Coach Rolando Aguirre said specific paperwork had to be filed out with the California Interscholastic Federation because Los Angeles is a City Section school and Bell-Jeff is a CIF Southern Section school.

On the heels of criminal cases involving California teachers and district employees who failed to report alleged child abuse on campus, Assemblyman Mike Gatto (D-Silver Lake) has proposed a law that would require public schools to adopt uniform procedures for detecting and reporting such crimes. In one of the cases cited by Gatto, however, prosecutors dropped the charges against the teacher.
