LA CRESCENTA - Not since her freshman season had Crescenta Valley High senior Sierra Rhoads experienced a CIF Southern Section playoff victory. And for most of the Falcons, a playoff win was something they'd never been a part of. Over the last two years, the first round had been an obstacle Crescenta Valley was unable to overcome. That changed on Thursday afternoon, as a Rhoads goal in the 33rd minute proved just enough to allow the Falcons to stave off a late-charging San Luis Obispo squad and clear their first-round hurdle to the tune of a 1-0 triumph at Crescenta Valley High in the opening round of the Division III girls' soccer playoffs.

Jim Chase This Saturday, April 18, the way we make calls from the 818 area code is changing. Yep, because it just isn’t complicated enough, starting tomorrow, every number we dial will require at least 10 digits. Yes, every phone number — from your next door neighbor to the gleaming global headquarters of the Crescenta Valley Sun. This new mandatory use of our own 818 area code is due to the California Public Utilities Commission’s approval to add a new area code overlay, 747, to the same geographic area covered by the 818 area code.

I was warned to get to President Barack Obama’s inauguration early. The crowds would swell to enormous sizes. Not surprising. It’s been like that since I arrived this weekend. I got there about 7:45 a.m. and saw the masses going in every direction around Third, Second and First streets.
