Voters opted for stability in Tuesday's election, returning City Councilmen Dennis Kneier and Eugene Sun to office and extending a public safety tax. A term limit law that would cap lawmakers' service at two four-year terms before forcing them to take a hiatus of at least two years before running again also passed easily, garnering 76% of the vote. Kneier was the top vote-getter in the city council race, earning 37% of the vote, while Sun got 36%. First-time candidate David Foley, a real estate manager, had 16% of the vote, and law firm staffer Stephanie Johnson garnered just under 12% of the vote.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE - It was anyone's guess how the first game between the Flintridge Prep or San Marino High girls' volleyball teams would impact both sides moving forward in the match Tuesday. The Rebels faced game-point and were down by nine before they tied the Titans in the opener with a nine-point run. San Marino settled down to halt the Prep push and take the first game. "They had a real strong server on the back line and once you give up some points it's easy to give up a lot of points," said San Marino Coach Gordon Anderson of Prep's Daniella Motte, who had four aces in the first game and six in the match.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE - Already missing three returning starters due to outside commitments, the Flintridge Prep boys' basketball team became even thinner Friday when guard Kyle Hamane suffered what Rebels Coach Garrett Ohara termed a bad ankle sprain in the team's opening game of the Flintridge Prep Basketball Tournament. When Prep took the court later in the afternoon to face San Marino in tournament action, the Rebels would need some one to pick up the slack. They got just that, from several sources, in pulling away from the Titans in the second half to notch a 63-57 win. “That's what you like in the summer, there's guys who have got to be in different roles,” said Ohara, who got 14 points and eight points from Tyler Weakland, 11 points and eight rebounds from Chadd Cosse and eight points apiece from four other players.

The following are previews of the area's upcoming high school football games this week.

SAN MARINO - What was a close, hotly-contest nonleague football game for 42 minutes bordered on a blowout six minutes later.

Fifteen people were arrested Thursday on suspicion of taking part in an elaborate $18-million Medicare fraud scheme that officials say involved a pharmacy in San Marino and a Glendale medical clinic. The scheme involved so-called “prescription harvesting,” in which Manor Medical Imaging Clinic and San Gabriel Valley pharmacies allegedly re-billed the government repeatedly for anti-psychotic medications, according to a federal criminal complaint unsealed Thursday. A total of 17 people were named in the complaint.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE - With the game in hand by the early stages of the second half, the Flintridge Prep girls' soccer team could afford to coast a bit down the stretch of its nonleague match against visiting San Marino at the Glendale Sports Complex on Tuesday. But while Rebels Coach Esteban Chavez wasn't thrilled with the way his team closed out the game, he was more than pleased with a different kind of finishing touch in the scoring flare flashed by freshman forward Katherine Pinney.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE - For the past three years, defense has been as important as offense for the Flintridge Prep boys' water polo team under coach Dan Hare. “I have been teaching them the satisfaction may not be quite as exciting a goal, but a field block or a steal is also pretty good,” Hare said. It was evident Tuesday when the Rebels hosted San Marino in a nonleague match. Prep dominated from start to finish en route to a 16-2 victory, thanks in large part to a defense that suffocated the Titans, who committed 19 turnovers.

Edgar Melik-Stepanyan PASADENA -- Sometimes the La Canada High boys' basketball team makes winning look a little too easy.

La Canada played to near perfection Wednesday night against San Marino High in the Rio Hondo League opener. In convincing fashion, the Spartans defeated the Titans, 73-31, at San Marino High.

When the Hoover High wrestling team sets foot to mat at this weekend's CIF Southern Section Eastern Division Individual Wrestling Championships at Perris Citrus Hill High, it will have almost been three weeks since the Tornadoes have officially competed. Perhaps it could be argued that the fledgling three-year program enjoyed its greatest day at the Rio Hondo League individual wrestling finals at Monrovia High on Feb. 1. There, the Tornadoes captured two league titles and advanced all 10 wresters to the Eastern Division championships, although only nine will make the trip.

BURBANK - Glendale High's girls' water polo team came back in the fourth quarter of the championship game at the fifth annual Burbank Tournament against San Marino only to see the contest tied in the final minute on a five-meter penalty. “It was a little upsetting to get that five-meter called, but I didn't even think about winning,” Nitro assistant Casey Sripramong, who led the team on Saturday, said. “I knew they had the skills to win.” In sudden-death overtime, the Nitros pulled through on a Naira Sarkian goal and Glendale won, 8-7, over the Titans to claim the title.

Shortly before 6 p.m. on Saturday night, Crescenta Valley High's football season officially came to an end. In reality, its fate was likely sealed when Burbank defeated Burroughs, 47-21, on Friday night to wrap up the Pacific League, leaving Crescenta Valley, Burbank and Burroughs in a three-way tie for second place in league, but the Falcons on the outside of an automatic top-three playoff berth due to losing a coin flip. And on Saturday evening, the Falcons' bid for the CIF Southern Section Southeast Division's lone at-large entry was stymied when West Covina, out of the Hacienda League, received it. “I'm really shocked,” Falcons Coach Paul Schilling said.
