The following are updates on local baseball players at the minor league level. Trevor Bell (Crescenta Valley High, 2005) Pensacola Blue Wahoos pitcher: It was only a matter of time until Bell got bumped up in the Cincinnati Reds organization. A spotless run in Pensacola at the double-A level earned him a promotion to the triple-A Louisville Bats. Despite keeping a perfect earned-run average, Bell's stay at triple-A was short-lived. He received the call to the next level on June 29 and after making two relief appearances was optioned back to double-A Pensacola on July 4. Bell recorded a hold in his first outing with the Bats on June 30. He threw 1 1/3 innings of spotless relief, not allowing a base runner, and notching a strikeout, in the team's 4-2 win over the Indianapolis Indians.

BURBANK ? Glendale Police Chief Randy Adams testified on Wednesday that he would have considered promoting Officer Patricia Larrigan, who is suing the department for alleged discrimination, had she passed necessary exams.

Since her injury, Larrigan has been among 1% of the force that is considered a permanent, limited-duty officer incapable of field duty.

I'm not a Montrose merchant, but I'm related to one, so let me take a crack at answering Maria Leinenweber's question about what John Drayman meant in his letter rhetorically asking which events Mrs. Leinenweber would like the merchants' association to eliminate. The festival was created as a promotion for the shopping park. Reasonable people can disagree as to its success. However, the fact is that there are limits to how much money the merchants have in their bank account to do the promotions mentioned by Mr. Drayman.

By the time he first got his new client in the gym, trainer Joe Goossen only had three weeks to get Vanes "Nightmare" Martirosyan ready for Friday night's title fight against Mario Alberto Lozano. Yet Goossen never had a sense the training camp was running behind schedule. "We accomplished a lot in that three weeks and the reason we were able to accomplish so much is because Vanes came to me in very good condition," Goossen said. "I think he had dedicated himself to getting physically fit to be ready to go fight and he spent a lot of time in the gym doing a lot of running, swimming and physical training outside the gym. It would have been much different if he were not working before he came to me, but because he was, it made the transition very easy.
