California Weekend by Cary Ordway is a new feature in Applause designed to help the California resident and visitor find unique and extraordinary getaway experiences in and near California. If you're as fascinated as we are by the opulence of 1930s Hollywood - a time when parts of Southern California seemed as far removed from the Depression-era Midwest as the two regions' temperatures on a bright January day - there is an excursion you can take that is like going back to spend a weekend with Clark Gable or Carole Lombard.

LA CANADA FLINTRIDGE - Part ruthlessly efficient, part gracefully balanced, the visiting Santa Barbara High boys' soccer team was totally dominant in nonleague action Saturday afternoon, taking apart St. Francis, 6-1, at Friedman Field. Whether it was stats, such as the Dons outshooting the Golden Knights, 25-11, or on-field play, as Santa Barbara doubled its first-half offensive output with four second-half goals, there wasn't much the Dons did wrong or much St. Francis could look for positively.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE — They say home is where the heart is. For one historic night, that adage couldn’t have rang more true for the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy girls’ volleyball team. And on Tuesday night it was a heart that beat loud. The comfort of their home gymnasium, not having to travel some 200 roundtrip miles, and having the support of their fan base was exactly what the Tologs needed, and perhaps, what got them over the hump. “It was key,” senior Katie Condon said.
