Good morning, readers. Today is Monday, August 20. Pasadena city officials are not pleased with any of the Metropolitan Transportation Agency's proposed routes for the Long Beach (710) Freeway extension. The city is exploring ways to overturn a 2001 voter initiative that formally offered the city's support for an extension that would connect the freeway to the Foothill (210) Freeway in Pasadena from its current terminus in Alhambra. Pasadena Sun Police are searching for suspects after a man was stabbed while intervening in an argument at an Arcadia park . Pasadena Star The final projects of Measure B, a $25 million school bond approved by voters in 2004 to fund La Cañada Unified School District projects, are wrapping up .

Jim Riggio GLENDALE HIGH -- In the early part of the 1990s, Glendale High had one of the top football programs in the Pacific League and won the league title in 1991 and 1992. One of the reasons for that was development of its players on the frosh-soph team, which was coached by Loi Phan. Phan, a 1985 graduate of Glendale, who coached the Nitro frosh-soph team to three Pacific League titles in six years from 1991-96, has been selected the school's new varsity coach.

Charles Rich On paper, they figure to be the odds-on favorite to win their third CIF Southern Section Division III championship since 1997.

For more than a decade, Reggie Rivas has spent countless hours on local fields preparing players for the rigors of collegiate soccer. Many of his pupils achieved success at the club and high school level under his watch. Now, Rivas is ready to begin instruction at the next level. "I just love coaching soccer and making the players that much better," said Rivas, a former Crescenta Valley High girls' soccer coach who was named head coach of the Pasadena City College women's soccer program June 24. "It's something I've done for a long time and this will be a challenge that will be fun at PCC. "I get to work for a great program and the administration is wonderful.

Instead of going to a NCAA Division II football program, Tyler Marona decided to start his college football career at Pasadena City College out of St. Francis High. "There were people and coaches all over the place telling me I shouldn't do that, [junior colleges] aren't an option," said Marona, a defensive lineman who hoped he'd garner some Division I interest after his freshman season. The former Golden Knight also started questioning if he made the right decision around winter break when he hadn't heard from any Division I schools, and about three weeks ago Pasadena City College Coach Fred Fimbres sat down with Marona and his parents in an attempt to reassure them.

California Atty. Gen. Kamala Harris is the top prosecutor in the most populous state in the nation, but she makes less than her counterparts in six other states. She also makes far less than the city attorneys for Burbank, Glendale and Pasadena. Harris was paid $151,127 last year, before a 5% pay cut took effect in December. In comparison, the attorney generals in Illinois, Pennsylvania, Washington, New York, Tennessee and Alabama were paid more in 2012, a state salary survey has found.

PASADENA -- History would be made at Robinson Stadium on Saturday night, as the Pasadena City College football team hosted Cerritos College.  It would not be the kind of history that Lancers Coach Fred Fimbres wants to remember, as the Falcons defeated the Lancers, 65-14. This loss goes down as the biggest deficit, 51 points, at Robinson Stadium.  It would also be the most points, 65, given up by the Lancers in the stadium's history.  Robinson Stadium was built in 1999. “Any loss is a tough loss,” Fimbres said.

Glendale Community College may see its budget shrink an additional $1.9 million this year - its share of an unexpected $149-million cut to the California community college system announced this week. It would follow on the heels of $5.7-million in lost revenue the college has already sustained since the start of the current fiscal year on July 1, said Ron Nakasone, vice president of administrative services. “This is the third cut we have had to absorb this year,” he said.

Marine Corps recruiters at the San Gabriel Valley Pride event at Pasadena City College on Saturday didn't care whether the young men who lined up to test their strength were gay or straight. The Marines just wanted to see some pull-ups done properly: Place hands about shoulder width apart, palms facing away; pull upward until chin is over the bar and then slowly return to the hanging position. Repeat until the feet feel like concrete blocks and the biceps like rubber bands about to snap.

The Glendale Community College football team will start the 2011 season the same way it did the last one, in a matchup with Pasadena City College. Whatever the Vaqueros learned about the Lancers from that meeting, which resulted in a 41-20 loss, may not mean much in preparing for the rematch today at 6 p.m. at PCC's Robinson Field. Having installed Coach Fred Fimbres, PCC's fifth head man in the last seven seasons, less than two months ago, the Lancers are a program coming off a 4-6 season in a state of flux with less than half of their 2010 roster returning.
