Let me understand this: We have a pedestrian who bolts out against the red light into a large oncoming truck, she gets totaled, and some brain surgeon writes that the solution is to ticket more motorists. Amazing (“70-year-old woman struck by delivery truck in Glendale,” Sept. 7). His other “remedy” is to jaywalk in mid block. There's nothing like jumping out between two parked vehicles into the path of an oncoming vehicle. Other than driving in Rome, I have not witnessed more offensively aggressive, or brainless, pedestrians than in Glendale - we could teach New Yorkers a real lesson.

Saro Sarkisian PASADENA -- Aces, aces and more aces. That was what the Skyward Christian and Pacific Christian girls' volleyball teams were seeing Saturday night in a CIF Southern Section Division IVA quarterfinals match. An astonishing 52 aces were served, including 29 by Pacific Christian as it advanced to the semifinals, defeating the Saints in five games, 9-15, 15-9, 11-15, 15-12, 15-9. "It was a really good match and [one that was] very exciting for us," Saint Coach Krista Gael said.

Saro Sarkisian SYLMAR -- It's one thing to have a dominant defense, but it's ridiculous when a defense holds its opponent to negative yardage. The Skyward Christian football team allowed zero yards passing and miuns-two yards on the ground to defeat Westmark, 44-6, Saturday in an Omega League game at First Lutheran High, to repeat as league champions. But the Saints, an eight-man squad based out of Tujunga, might have suffered the biggest blow to their stellar season, when starting quarterback Jake Burch injured his left knee in the middle of the second quarter.

The Newport Harbor High girls field hockey team may have lost 14 seniors and its head coach, but the team didn't lose its knack for winning games. The Sailors, who won the Sunset League title for the fourth time in five seasons and reached the final of the Los Angeles Field Hockey Association Tournament of Champions last year, picked up where it left off with a convincing 3-0 victory over Santa Ana High in a scrimmage at Harper School on Tuesday afternoon.

When members of Glendale's Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints began collecting donations for Hurricane Katrina victims, they estimated that they wouldat best make about 250 hygiene kits -- packs of soap, toothpaste, toothbrushes, towels and other necessities -- church officials said. But an overwhelming outpouring of community support over a two-week period helped the church raise more than $8,000, Aleene MacMinn, director of public relations for Glendale's chapter said.

Saro Sarkisian SYLMAR -- The Skyward Christian football team began its 2001 campaign -- and third year of the eight-man program at the Tujunga school -- against Southlands Christian, which it lost to by 38 points last year. Playing without a few key starters, the overmatched Saints were again shut out by the Eagles, 28-0, Saturday at their home site First Lutheran High. "We don't want to make any excuses, but we were without two starters today," Skyward Christian Coach Rich Lowe said.

Edgar Melik-Stepanyan SYLMAR -- The Skyward Christian High football team has been in existence for only two years and so the Saints know they have a lot of growing to do on the field before they can contend for a CIF Eight-Man Small Division title. They took their first step this season as they captured the Omega League title by winning their three games by an average of 35 points. But Skyward Christian's first-round opponent, Cuyama Valley High, wasn't like any team it had faced before.

TUJUNGA -- It took only a year for Skyward Christian football coach Rich Lowe to take a team from worst to first, as the Saints won the Omega League title last season after losing every game the previous year. This season, Lowe hopes to guide a 24-man roster with 12 freshmen to another successful season. "My first goal is to repeat as league champions, which is the hardest thing to do," Lowe said. "Our second goal is to play as good of defense as we possibly can."

Marshall Allen GLENDALE -- Holy relics have been venerated throughout church history, but there have been misunderstandings about their power and authenticity. Now, relics belonging to Tom Serafin are on display at Forest Lawn Memorial Museum in Glendale. The collection features hundreds of relics, including a tooth of Joseph of Arimathea and a piece of the cross on which Christ was crucified. It's on display until Jan. 27, 2002. Serafin, a studio photographer in Los Angeles, has been acquiring relics for more than 10 years and has more than 1,200 in his collection -- all of them authenticated by the Vatican.

Many snapshot moments occurred throughout the 2013 Little League season. Some local teams repeated achievements from a year ago, like the Arroyo Seco Saints run to the Palomino World Series and the Crescenta Valley-Foothill Junior All-Star softball team's appearance in the Southern California State tournament. Other teams had the joy of soaking up all new experiences and success. After a wild walk-off game in the District Tri-Cities tournament, the Crescenta Valley Kiwanis and Aristo minor softball teams joined forces for a Crescenta Valley 9-10 All-Star softball run in which they racked up District 16 and Section 2 titles and advanced to the Southern California State Championship final - going as far as a 9-10 team could possibly go. Many players stood out on diamonds across the area before taking their talents to other regions.

COMPTON - A season that lasted exactly 40 games and began in early June came to a conclusion for the Arroyo Seco Saints 19U summer baseball team Saturday evening.

Puerto Rico's victory qualified the isle team to Monday's championship game at 7 p.m. versus the host Urban Youth Academy squad.

COMPTON - If there was one comfort for the Arroyo Seco Saints 19U summer baseball team heading into Saturday afternoon's elimination contest of the Palomino World Series Tournament, it may have been that the Saints had found themselves in a similar setting a week before. Arroyo Seco, which rallied to a West Zone Tournament title earlier this week, bounced back in its bid to win the World Series with an impressive 14-1 victory over the Central Michigan Stars in second-chance bracket action at the Major League Baseball Urban Youth Academy.

COMPTON - Perhaps there's no easier or simpler way to describe the Arroyo Seco Saints 19U baseball team's loss than to say it suffered a lost evening Friday in Palomino World Series action. The Saints' march to a series title was derailed in one half inning, as the visiting Bayamon Vaqueros of Puerto Rico scored 12 runs on nine hits in the top of the second before eventually settling on a 16-4 victory in five innings in the second round of tournament action at the Major League Baseball Urban Youth Academy.

COMPTON - After a week that included four straight one-run games and an exciting tournament finale, the Arroyo Seco Saints 19U baseball team enjoyed a rare reprieve Thursday afternoon. The West Zone champions spared all the drama by scoring 10 runs through the first two innings and started off the Palomino World Series Tournament with an easy 13-0 win over visiting Jakarta, Indonesia in a five-inning game at the Major League Baseball Urban Youth Academy in Compton. PHOTOS: Arroyo Seco Saints vs. Indonesia in Palomino World Series “We weren't going to take anything for granted this year, especially with what happened to us last year in the first round,” Saints Coach Aaron Milam said in reference to Arroyo Seco's 17-8 defeat to Chinese Taipei Taiwan in last year's first game of the World Series.

COMPTON - With his team celebrating behind him a few minutes after clinching a West Zone Tournament Palomino championship, Arroyo Seco 18U baseball Coach Aaron Milam reflected on the differences between 2012 and 2013. Even though in both seasons Milam's Saints clinched West Zone Tournament crowns and earned berths to the Palomino World Series, there are substantial contrasts. “I think the biggest difference is just having experience in getting to the World Series,” Milam said.

COMPTON - There's no place like the West Zone for the Arroyo Seco Saints 18U summer baseball team. Five days after opening defense of their 2012 championship with a loss, the Saints concluded a stunning turnaround with a 6-3 victory over the South Bay Legacy in the championship game of the Palomino West Zone Tournament at the Major League Baseball Urban Youth Center in Compton. The victory was the fifth in a row over a four-day span for the Saints (31-5), who advance to Thursday's opening round of the Palomino World Series versus Jakarta, Indonesia at noon back at the Urban Youth Center.

COMPTON - What seemed like a long shot only four days ago is looking more and more like sure a bet. After the Arroyo Seco Saints 18U baseball team kick-started defense of its West Zone Palomino Tournament crown by stubbing its toe in defeat, the Pasadena-based squad, which boasts nine local players, did more than just exact revenge Monday evening. The Saints also put themselves in position to repeat as champions after a strange and fortunate 3-2 victory over the PAL Giants of San Jose in tournament semifinal action at the Urban Youth Academy.

COMPTON - As far as frontiers go, there just aren't many places the Arroyo Seco Saints 18U summer baseball team hasn't been, especially in the postseason. Yet, the Saints are in unfamiliar territory as the defending Palomino West Zone champions will have to defend their crown from the consolation bracket, as Arroyo Seco, which includes nine local players, fell in opening-round bracket action, 3-1, to the visiting PAL Giants of San Jose at the Major League Baseball Urban Youth Academy in Compton on Friday afternoon.
