Claudia Peschiutta GLENDALE -- On a spring day in 1935, Mrs. Harris gathered her Fremont Elementary School students for their class picture. About three years ago, the smiling boys and girls in that photograph caught the attention of Georgia Reichenbach, who saw them while going through a box of old photographs in an antique store in Florida. The sentimental retiree had no connection to Glendale or Fremont Elementary, but she paid the $2 for the photograph and took it home to Ohio, hoping to reunite it with one of its rightful owners, one of the 31 students pictured.

Dave Mendoza had visions of spending his 40th birthday on the white-sand beaches of Cancun, Mexico, relaxing and enjoying the scenery of one of the most beautiful vacation spots in the world. But he scrapped his dream vacation last week when the assistant coach for the San Gabriel Valley baseball team watched his squad advance to the Babe Ruth World Series in the 16- to 19-year-old division. Mendoza, the new athletic director and longtime assistant baseball coach at Crescenta Valley High, will instead celebrate his birthday on Sunday in Newark, Ohio, site of the World Series, which will be held Thursday through Aug. 16. Instead of sightseeing in Cancun, Mendoza will be touring Newark, which is the home office to the Longaberger Co., makers of world-renowned handcrafted baskets.

GLENDALE — When Karen Darabedyan takes center stage inside the World Extreme Cagefighting octagon for the second time, second time or not, he said he’ll still have plenty of butterflies leading into his fight. “I’m always pretty nervous before a fight,” said the Glendale fighter. “I think it brings out the best in me.” But when Darabedyan faces off with Bart Palaszewski on Saturday night in Columbus, Ohio as part of the live Versus telecast of WEC: Bowles vs. Cruz, he will do so with a major fight under his belt, a full training camp behind him and as a different mixed martial artist.

GLENDALE —Vanes “The Nightmare” Martirosyan has scored impressive knockouts and dominated opponents with regularity over the last four-plus years, but what the Glendale-based welterweight did to Willie Lee on Saturday night at the Beeghly Center in Youngstown, Ohio came with an extra reward — two of them, to be exact. Martirosyan scored a third-round technical-knockout win over Lee to capture the North American Boxing Federation and North American Boxing Organization super welterweight titles, the first of his professional career, which has seen him amass an unbeaten record of 26-0 with 17 knockouts since debuting in April, 2005.

GLENDALE — No doubt about it. That's the impression the San Gabriel Valley All-Star baseball team left following its first game of the Babe Ruth 16-18 World Series in Newark, Ohio. The final damage was an impressive 13-0 no-hit, mercy-rule-shortened victory over Denham Springs of Louisiana on Friday. While the tournament's defending champions didn't intentionally set out to make a bold statement, the win was a welcomed sign following a first-game defeat in the opener of last year's World Series.
