Edgar Melik-Stepanyan Some losses are inexcusable. Others are just plain mind-boggling. The Flintridge Prep girls' basketball team's 35-33 loss to host Pasadena Westridge on Thursday would fall under both categories. The Rebels -- who many thought would go through Prep League competition unscathed -- suffered their first league loss in almost two years, leaving their Coach Kenny Fisher dumbfounded. "We shouldn't lose these games," said Fisher, who suffered his last league loss Jan. 31, 2001 at Pasadena Poly, a 59-55 setback in triple overtime.

BURBANK — The last time the Glendale and Burroughs high boys’ tennis teams stood toe-to-toe on the same courts, it was for the all the marbles. The two teams finished in a tie for third place at the end of last season and needed a play-in match, which Burroughs eventually prevailed in, to determine who would earn the Pacific League’s final berth into the CIF playoffs. While Tuesday’s early season league battle didn’t have quite the same stakes, the victor would take an important step forward in the race for the league championship.

Charles Rich Call it a bizarre day in the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy girls' tennis team's season. No Flintridge Sacred Heart athlete would beg to differ Tuesday after the Tologs dropped a 10-8 Mission League match to Sherman Oaks Notre Dame at Fremont Tennis Center. Begin off the court. No. 2 singles player Jennifer Iwata was involved in a traffic accident near Pacific Avenue and Burchett Street, about a quarter-mile from the tennis center, nearly 30 minutes before the match.

BURBANK — On talent alone, the Hoover High boys' basketball team sits near the top among its Pacific League counterparts. But as the team learned Wednesday, talent all by itself doesn't guarantee a victory. Days after losing a heartbreaker to reigning league champion Pasadena, the Tornadoes suffered another setback as they were defeated by host Burbank, 46-43. "I told them, 'Let's not have a letdown,'" Hoover Coach Vigen Jilizian said. "That's all we concentrated on and we didn't do that.

CITY HALL — Heated testimony from Councilman Bob Yousefian about two setback ordinances introduced Tuesday boiled into a public, expletive-laced altercation between the councilman and City Manager Jim Starbird immediately after the gavel fell. The exchange, which both officials reportedly colored with expletives, ended only after Starbird clutched Yousefian’s arm and forced him behind closed doors where Starbird said they continued the debate for 30 minutes. The scuffle prompted Mayor Ara Najarian to summon an on-duty police officer standing near the chamber entrance to move closer to the back room, “in case somebody needed help,” Najarian said.

Buck Wargo CITY HALL -- A Kennington Drive property owner won't get the variances he wants to build a home. The Glendale City Council voted 4-0 Tuesday to reject a request by Edward Simonian for a variance and conditional use permit for 2632 Kennington Drive. Simonian wanted approval to construct a house on a lot smaller than allowed by code. He also wanted a four-foot setback from the street where a 15-foot setback is required. The property is a vacant lot, which slopes downhill away from the street.

In your editorial ("City Council blinded by fence matters," Aug. 11, 2001), you urged the Glendale City Council "to do away with its antiquated, Mayberry-minded ordinance prohibiting fences." Other recent letters to the editor have complained about the fence ordinance as being communistic. This shows an astonishing lack of understanding of the fence ordinance. First of all, the restrictions on fences are a part of setback regulations that prohibit construction in setback areas.

Story count: an attached garage would not be counted as a story in height measurements. ? Design guidelines: improve Hillside Design Guidelines and include a definition of ?

Eddie Alvarez The 2003 season was a wild ride that Marty Konrad will never forget. But the 2004 campaign is shaping up to be a year the Flintridge Prep football coach will probably soon want to forget. The reigning CIF Southern Section Division XIII champion Rebels suffered another setback Saturday at Duarte High, dropping a 21-7 nonleague decision to Verdugo Hills. The Dons hadn't won a game in their first three contests, and lost to Hoover, 18-7, last week.

LA CRESCENTA - A strong regular season will go without one big prize for the Crescenta Valley High girls' track and field team. The Falcons entered Tuesday afternoon's regular season-ending Pacific League track meet versus Arcadia hoping to dethrone the champions at home. Despite a few strong efforts, the Falcons came up short, 83-53, to finish runner-up to eight-time titlist Arcadia, which also won the boys' meet, 82-54. “Hey, the girls did a great job, they have nothing to be ashamed of,” Falcons Coach Mark Evans said.

LA CAÑADA - Carlos Ponce wasn't discouraged after the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy water polo team suffered its second consecutive Mission League defeat Thursday. What left the Flintridge Sacred Heart coach frustrated was that the Tologs hit the post or crossbar six times in the first half in a home match against Louisville. Still, there's no reason for Ponce to sound the alarm. "There's a lot we came take from this game," Ponce said after Flintridge Sacred heart suffered a 6-2 defeat.

The most high-fidelity search for methane on Mars has turned up none, a result that significantly reduces the chances of finding microbial life on the Red Planet. The highly awaited results of tests conducted by NASA's Curiosity rover do not completely rule out the possibility that something is alive on Mars, researchers said. But the findings, published online Thursday by the journal Science, strongly suggest that Mars is barren. “We're very confident in this result,” said study leader Christopher R. Webster, who oversees the development of planetary science instruments at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in La Cañada Flintridge.

BURBANK - After playing catch-up for much of the second half, the Flintridge Prep girls' basketball team very nearly ran down Immaculate Heart late in the fourth quarter of Wednesday night's pool-play game of the Pioneer Shootout. In the process of cutting the lead down to a one-possession game with seconds to play, the Rebels got a glimpse of their potential for this season, but ultimately lost the game, 52-49, to fall into a consolation playoff-bracket game today. “They're learning right now that you've got to bring that kind of energy from the very beginning,” Prep first-year co-Coach Kevin Kiyomura said.

The proposed Newhall Ranch residential development project received another setback this week when a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge issued a preliminary ruling that supported concerns raised by environmentalists. Developers seek to eventually house about 60,000 residents along a six-mile stretch of the Santa Clara River. Environmentalists argue that the development would harm the waterway, destroy wildlife habitat and despoil Native American cultural sites. The project has languished for years amid heavy opposition.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE - There's plenty of motivation this season for Marel Tavatian. Before embarking on helping the Westridge tennis team try to win a second straight Prep League championship, the No. 1 singles player spent time working on her conditioning. It's helped make a difference during the early portion of the season. Tavatian's work on the court has been impressive as a result. “I've been working on my fitness, and it's helped me improve being quicker,” said Tavatian, who swept her three sets without losing a game Wednesday afternoon in Westridge's 18-0 league win against rival Flintridge Prep at Scholl Canyon Tennis Center.

COMPTON - After two jarring innings, the Arroyo Seco Saints found out that once the damage was done, the bell could not be unrung. Actually, the ring was more like a ping, as the size of the aluminum bats wielded by Chinese Taipei took center stage as the hot topic of the Saints' 17-8 opening-round loss on Thursday in the 2012 Palomino League World Series at the Major League Baseball Urban Youth Academy in Compton. A rules violation detected only after the completion of the first two innings and a lingering dispute over the semantics of the rule book that still wasn't settled even after the game's conclusion combined to leave a bitter taste in the Saints' mouths, as they never recovered from the early 7-0 deficit and suffered their first loss in 15 games.
