Charles Rich They've become a hot stove, and nobody will dare touch them for the time being. Throw in a newly found trust factor, and the members of the La Canada High girls' water polo team look to have found their offensive identity just in time. Especially with Jen Jorgensen and Kara Murphy leading the charge. Jorgensen recorded a team-high four goals and Murphy added three Thursday to lead La Canada to a 10-4 nonleague home victory against Santa Monica.

GLENDALE ? They could lament all they want about how the Pacific League didn't command respect this season, but they won't. Crescenta Valley High girls' tennis Coach Tom Gossard and Glendale Coach Bob Davidson are grateful that their respective teams have a chance to compete in the CIF Southern Section Division II playoffs, which will begin today. The CIF office released its playoff pairings Monday, meaning Crescenta Valley and Glendale had little time to prepare for their wild-card matches.

Erik Boal Glen Appels knows that in order to enjoy a fruitful run in the CIF Southern Section playoffs, that you have to be able to win a tough match on the road. During its run to the Division IV title in 2001, the St. Francis High boys' soccer team did just that, winning a second-round contest at Irvine Northwood, something it couldn't do the previous year after falling in the round of 16 to Pomona Diamond Ranch. That scenario unfolded again in Wednesday's Division II second-round contest against host Santa Monica, but it was clear from the outset that Appels' squad had plans on hanging around until at least Friday.

Edgar Melik-Stepanyan Odds and ends from the local high school boys' water polo scene: Building blocks of the future: La Canada High is known for having strong sports programs, which range from the varsity ranks to the lower levels.

Your Oct. 15 Community Forum printed a letter from Emmy Rhine (of the) Foundation for Taxpayer and Consumer Rights, Santa Monica. This person paints businesses as "abusive," "intrusive into people's lives," "engaging in merciless bad business practices," and "sacrificing the safety and welfare of workers, consumers, and citizens in blind pursuit of profit." Why is someone from Santa Monica writing letters regarding Glendale? This is a wonderful community.
