"People ask me what I do in winter when there's no baseball. I'll tell you what I do. I stare out the window and wait for spring." — Rogers Hornsby The greatest second baseman of all-time W here, oh where, did the spring go? Just as soon as the playoffs began, they ended. In a season symbolic of hope and that which is beginning, the end came sooner than ever as my mind can recollect. It is the spring in which the Falcons are usually flying highest and farthest and it is in the spring when the Rebels lasted far and long upon the court and it is the spring in which a trip to Fresno seemed an annual occurrence.

With pit stops at a makeshift baseball diamond and jungle gym, a host of local children scurried about Verdugo Park, making the most of their weeklong spring break from school on Tuesday. Twenty-eight children participated in the city Parks, Recreation and Community Services Department's Spring Spectacular Camp Tuesday. For 11-year-old Lucas Vishnivetz, a sixth-grader at Thomas A. Edison Elementary School, the reason to come to camp is simple. "In school you can't play all day, but here you can," he said.

NORTHWEST GLENDALE - With the field mowed and the yard lines coated in white paint, the Hoover High football team held its first spring practice session Monday afternoon. While most of the other area teams began their respective gatherings earlier in the month, the Tornadoes begin spring practice having already competed in a passing tournament. That hasn't been the case in recent seasons for Hoover, but third-year Coach Chris Long opted for something a bit different. "Our spring practices will end June 10, so that still gives us three weeks of spring and then several weeks in the summer to get us going leading up to the season," said Long, whose team went 2-8 and 1-6 in the Pacific League for seventh place last season.

Gary Moskowitz NORTHEAST GLENDALE -- Patients in rehabilitation at Glendale Adventist Medical Center got some extra motivation toward recovery Tuesday. The 40 or more children in the medical center's campus children's center spent the last week making hats to commemorate the arrival of spring with their annual Spring Hat Walk. And with the help of the center's 14 staff members, the children -- ranging in age from 1 to 4 -- paraded through the medical center's lobby and rehabilitation center via baby buggies holding hands.

GRANT GORDON "Science has never drummed up quite as effective a tranquilizing agent as a sunny spring day." -- W. Earl Hall Ahh, the eternal bliss of spring. Sure, it's not technically here yet, but who can wait? Birds chirping, bats chiming. Flowers blooming, baseball, softball, volleyball, golf, track, tennis and swimming fans crooning. Youngsters growing, pitchers throwing. See, I'm not a poet and I did know it. Fact is, spring is seen as the magical season in which everything is born, blooms, blossoms and grows.

Lincoln?s Spring Spectacular attracted thousands of students, parents, alumni and community members. Notably in full force were Rosemont seventh-graders from the Lincoln class of ?07, since last year?s Spectacular was canceled. Also in force were plenty of Lincoln grads now attending CVHS. Kids of all ages waited in long lines to ride the pirate ship swing and to get their faces painted. The Korean Parents Club quickly sold out of its barbecue plates and the In-and-Out truck sold nearly 500 burgers.

Jose Ruiz The always proper and elite Glendale Symphony Ensemble delighted a small, but fiercely loyal group of followers Sunday with its "Serenade To Spring" at the venerable Alex Theatre. Never mind that it was held three days into summer. As the old cliche goes, "it's the thought that counts!" In this case, it was more than just a thought. Spring burst out again with the strains of Vivaldi's well-known opus, "Spring" from "The Four Seasons," with Maestro Sidney Weiss himself firmly taking charge of the bouncy violin solos with the intimate ensemble backing him. The seven violins, three violas, three cellos and one bass were uncharacteristically verbose in their elocution, their music swaying, swirling, sweeping across the stage, deep into the cavernous corners of The Alex, as if to prove that a small group can equal the volume of their larger cousins just over the Phil - ah - - - hill.

As I write this, my two sons are winding up their long-awaited spring break from high school. The boys’ annual week-long pause in education was unusually late this year — at least it felt that way — with Easter coming much earlier than usual on the calendar. Then again, I have to remind myself to stop equating traditional Easter with the contemporary spring break. That is so old school, after all. For younger readers scratching their heads at that last comment, come with me for a brief journey in my grumpy old guy’s time machine.

Former Crescenta Valley High standout Trevor Bell has a new home. The one-time Major League baseball first-round draft pick was selected as a member of the opening day roster for the Cincinnati Reds. “Oh my gosh, it feels like nine years of hard work has paid off,” Bell said in an interview Saturday afternoon after the Reds fell to their Triple-A affliate Louisville, 1-0, in the spring training finale. “I don't even know how to explain it. I've been to five or six major league spring-training camps and it's never happened to me before.

The following are odds and ends from the local sports scene. BELL SHOWING OLD FORM IN SPRING Doing his best to make some noise as a non-roster invitee for the Cincinnati Reds, Trevor Bell has been outstanding out of the bullpen thus far this spring. On Thursday, Bell twirled a perfect sixth inning for the Reds in an 8-2 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers at Camelback Ranch in Arizona. Bell, a former News-Press Athlete of the Year during his days as a Crescenta Valley High phenom, struck out two. In five spring appearances, he's thrown 4 2/3 innings and has produced outstanding results with just two hits and a walk given up, no runs and eight strikeouts.

LA CAÑADA - When the Flintridge Prep football team found itself perfecting its running form on a Thursday afternoon, it was clear the Rebels had taken a back-to-basics approach in their spring workouts. "That's our focus this summer - keeping it simple - I think we may have one, two passing league games set up all summer," Flintridge Prep Coach Antonio Harrison said. "I want to get back to the basics. " Those basics include conditioning, footwork, catching and carrying the ball, route running and most importantly for the Rebels, who graduated 13 seniors, tackling.

Despite graduating 26 players and three of its primary offensive weapons, there's an excitement around the experience the Crescenta Valley High football team will have back in 2013. That's not to say the Falcons aren't dealing with some unknowns this spring - 22 to be exact. "We're going through this kind of thing where we've learned everything and now we're starting over and learning again," said Crescenta Valley Coach Paul Schilling of spring football. As always, fundamentals, conditioning, the weight room and chemistry building were still a priority this spring, but Schilling said the focus was on seeing what the 22 new players joining the varsity squad have to offer.

GLENDALE - Perhaps the most noticeable thing about the Glendale High football team will be what it's missing as it makes preparations for the 2013 season. For the first time in three years, the Nitros will take the field without their playmaker Michael Davis, who's headed to Brigham Young University in the fall. The standout wide receiver/defensive back was one of 20 seniors that graduated from the team, meaning there's been lots of new faces at spring practices. With so much of Glendale's offense leaning on Davis the past three years, second-year Nitros Coach John Tuttle is using the spring as a chance to evaluate what options he has in the newcomers.

NASA's Mars rover Curiosity has emerged from its "spring break" and is back to work, officials at Jet Propulsion Laboratory said this week. Up next on the agenda: Drilling the second target at Yellowknife Bay. The Mars Science Laboratory mission made big news shortly before its break, turning up key evidence of life-friendly environments in its first drill sample, said mission deputy project scientist Ashwin Vasavada. The revelation came just in time. Mars slipped behind the sun during the month of April, in a phenomenon known as solar conjunction.

Four Café in Eagle Rock feels a little like walking into a pal's kitchen. (OK, if your pal had a glass dessert case and a cash register right by the kitchen door.) The vibe is friendly and relaxed and the locavore food is worth lingering over. The neighborhood eatery does put a sliver of space between its half-dozen or so inside tables, but it feels more like communal dining. This is not the place to have a private discussion. But the wall of reclaimed wood slats, the modern paintings, polished concrete floors and gorgeous blown-glass ceiling lamps put you in the mood to share your egg salad, if not all your secrets, with your neighbor.

LA CRESCENTA - Crescenta Valley High football Coach Paul Schilling has a quarterback competition to play out and eight first-year players to work into the mix as the Falcons forge through spring practices. "We're trying to work out our personnel, trying to figure out who's where," Schilling said. "We've got a lot of young guys up. We're trying to figure it out personnel-wise and then just get going. After all the time in the weight room and all, it's just fun to get out here and run around.

Even though the Hoover High football team cut its spring practices short by a week, the two and a half weeks the Tornadoes did spend going through their paces sans helmets and pads on the practice field were still a considerable step up from last offseason. Hired late last May, second-year Hoover Coach Andrew Policky didn't even get his staff assembled until the summer, much less stage a spring session last season. Now the Tornadoes are looking to get an early start on turning the corner from last year's 0-10 campaign.
