With the recent outburst of anti-Armenian letters, I have come to believe that us Armenians are not American enough for the Americans. Living in the United States for 12 years of my 18 years of life has made me an American in my eyes. I honor the Constitution, the American flag, and the laws of the United States just like any other American, yet just because I was not born on certain soil makes me an outsider in a country of outsiders. I actually feel that, without immigrants, America would be doomed because immigrants keep the American dream alive.

BURBANK — The Burbank High and Glendale girls’ soccer teams were trying to bounce back from recent setbacks when they met Friday for a Pacific League match. Both were hoping to erase losing streaks, as the Bulldogs had dropped four straight and the Nitros were winless on the season, including three league matches. Although Glendale played tough defense at times, it didn’t create enough scoring opportunities. In contrast, Burbank manufactured a great deal of opportunities, as it rolled to a 3-0 victory at Luther Burbank Middle School.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE - Throughout most of Thursday's 80-minute Liberty League girls' soccer match between Glendale Adventist Academy and Providence High, Providence enjoyed a major territorial advantage. It also had a significant edge in scoring opportunities. However, the Pioneers couldn't reap the benefit and saw the Cougars take advantage of one of their few chances. Daniece Poblete scored on a rebound off a corner kick in the first half and goalkeeper Victoria Osby made 12 saves to propel Glendale Adventist to a 1-0 victory against Providence at the Glendale Sports Complex.

LA CRESCENTA — With the many scoring opportunities the Crescenta Valley boys’ soccer team had throughout its Pacific League opener against Burroughs, the Falcons should have enjoyed a commanding lead.

NORTHWEST GLENDALE — The boys’ soccer teams from Burbank High and Hoover had separate motivations heading into their match Monday. Well into the second half of Pacific League play, the Bulldogs were trying to remain among the elite squads in the league, as well as keep their hopes for a championship alive. The Tornadoes, on the other hand, needed a win to put themselves within striking distance of the league leaders. Despite a hard-fought, physical battle that yielded a ton of scoring chances, just a goal ended up separating the teams.

NORTHWEST GLENDALE — A second-half shutout was an encouraging sign for the Hoover High girls' soccer team, but a lack of scoring turned out to be the downfall. The Tornadoes were unable to get their offense in gear, as they fell at home to Arcadia, 2-0, on Wednesday in a Pacific League matchup. "Or defense played well," said Hoover Coach Julie Testin. "We really stepped it up in the second half." The solid defensive effort in the final 40 minutes turned out to be too little too late for the Tornadoes.

NASA's Mars rover Opportunity recently passed its 10th anniversary exploring the Red Planet and embarked on what scientists called a brand new mission, but the trusty little rover's funding has been thrust onto uncertain terrain. In the $17.5-billion 2015 budget proposal, NASA's core budget includes funding for several long-standing missions. But two were excluded from the lineup: Opportunity, the surviving half of the Mars Exploration Rover mission, as well as the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, launched in 2009.

GLENDALE - When it mattered most, the Crescenta Valley High baseball team couldn't bring a run across the plate. Trailing by one run over the final three innings, the Falcons stranded six runners on base, including four in scoring position. “That's a killer,” Falcons Coach Phil Torres said. So they dropped their final game of the Dick's Tournament at Stengel Field to Etiwanda, 3-2, on Friday night. Crescenta Valley (3-2) left a total of nine runners on base, just two days removed from leaving 11 on during a win over Fullerton.

Re: “Girl's family sues district,” Nov. 16. Silly me! If only I had known the attorney duo of Richardson and Cameron when my children were in school. Then I, too, could have sued Glendale Unified (also known as local taxpayers) when during schools hours my son fell and chipped his front teeth, requiring expensive cosmetic dental repair. And when my daughter fell during a high school volleyball game, breaking her hand, which needed extensive and lengthy orthopedic surgery - not to mention the psychological and emotional damage these events caused both of them.

Nine years after landing on Mars for a three-month mission, the aging NASA rover Opportunity may be poised to find more evidence that water once flowed on the Red Planet. The rover's first discovery of clues that water once flowed on Mars was announced in March 2004. But scientists later deemed it would have been acid-rich and not very conducive to life. Now, situated on the rim of a 14-mile-wide crater named Endeavour, the 400-pound rover may have stumbled upon an ancient region on Mars where the water was once neutral, maybe even drinkable.
