Summer is a 1-year-old spayed female brown smooth-coated Chihuahua. At first she may seem a little shy, but give her time and it will be worth your wait. Her size makes her a great candidate for apartment living. Summer does enjoy the outdoors and taking leisurely walks, but she needs to be an inside dog. Prior to adoption, the family and other pets should have a meet-and-greet to ensure that Summer is the perfect fit. For more information on Summer, contact the Burbank Animal Shelter and inquire about ID#A037831.

GLENDALE ? From Southern California to Canada, then back to Southern California, before earning a trip Greece and finally, back home. It was a whirlwind summer for Glendale High graduate Kevin Witt and the rest of his teammates on the Team USA Men's National Water Polo team. It concluded in Athens, as Team USA came up short in its bid to qualify for the championship in the FINA World League Super Final after consecutive losses to Serbia and Montenegro and Spain. Witt and Co. had advanced through the preliminaries in Canada and the semifinals in Los Alamitos with an undefeated mark prior and qualified for the finals after failing to the previous year.

One of the benefits of being a teacher is extra time off from the job compared to other people's two or three-week vacation periods. Of course, outsiders may not be aware that the time teachers have off in the summer is unpaid. Many teachers, myself included, end up teaching summer school or doing another job in order to continue paying the monthly bills. In recent years I have been very lucky not to have to work during the summer which has given me opportunities to get things done.

to an End AROUND THE NEWSROOM By Jennifer Berry City Editor It's nearing the end of summer, and it seems to the Valley Sun newsroom that everyone but us has taken a vacation. I'm sure that is not actually the case, but I think many families are taking the last few weeks of summer to escape the heat and take a break. One of our school principals just got back from a trip to Europe. She talked of how nice it was that everyone took Sunday off overseas, spending time relaxing before getting back to the old grind on Monday.

BURBANK — Despite a 14-point first-quarter lead, the Crescenta Valley High boys’ basketball team fell to Huntington Park, 52-46, Thursday at Burbank High. However, in spite of surrendering its summer league finale, Coach Shawn Zargarian felt his team made “above-average” progress following a second-place finish in the Pacific League last season. “Summertime, we’re not really looking at wins and losses,” he said. “Our goal this summer has been to work on our defense.

Glendale Community College will be offering more classes for the summer and winter sessions, however, full-time faculty members teaching those courses will be seeing smaller paychecks. Where faculty members had once earned up to $7,200 to teach a three-unit class during the summer or winter, they will instead be earning about $4,500. The savings associated with the reduced pay during the short sessions is what is allowing the college to offer more classes, said Ron Nakasone, executive vice president of administrative services.

A dvertisers declare that the start of summer is Memorial Day, but parents and children know that it doesn't really begin until the day after school is dismissed for summer break. Some of the parents I've talked to have lots of things planned to keep their kids busy this summer. Some will go to day camp, some will fly off to see their relatives for an extended visit, and a few will take family vacations across the U.S. or to other countries. Our kids are ready for some time off from school work and a regular schedule.

WOODLAND HILLS — The plan was simple during the summer for the members of the St. Francis High baseball team — look ahead to next spring. In order for the Golden Knights to possibly return to the playoffs next season after not qualifying this past campaign, they searched for potential lineup and defensive combinations. "I think we were able to answer some questions, like who might play third base and who some of our starting pitchers might be," said St. Francis Coach Brian Esquival, whose team saw its summer conclude with a 4-2 road loss to City Section Division I champion El Camino Real on Thursday afternoon in a Valley Invitational Baseball League first-round playoff contest.

When veteran guitarist Bob Summers hits the stage at Pasadena jazz joint Red White & Bluezz next Saturday, it'll be much more than a hometown hoedown. The 74-year-old Pasadena-born musician's family helped pioneer the Los Angeles music scene, performing gospel, country, pop and rock 'n' roll, almost from the ground up. Summers' parents were singing spirituals on KPCC in the 1930s and his older sister Iris regularly performed with Singing Cowboy star Jimmy Wakely as part of western vocal trio the Sunshine Girls.

A beleaguered summer camp that teaches low-income girls about finance and self-defense has been thrown a life saver as it received about $10,000 from the operator of Glendale Memorial Medical Center and $1,000 from Soroptimists International. The money ensures the camp will run again this year, following recent scares prompted by funding and enrollment issues . “We are thrilled we have support in the community to help us continue to offer Camp Rosie,” said Denise Miller, chair of the Commission on the Status of Women, a city board that organizes the program for at-risk girls, in an interview Monday.

Glendale schools opened on Aug. 12, the earliest start date in history, doing away with the traditional September-through-June school calendar that hasn't been all that traditional for a while now. The back-to-school ads that once appeared in newspapers and on television before Labor Day now surface after the Fourth of July. The rationale behind this "August creep" is for students to finish the fall semester before winter break, and for students taking Advanced Placement tests in May to receive more instructional days earlier in order to maximize their success.

The start of school is a time when districts have their teachers begin work a couple of days before students arrive with the purpose of getting everyone focused on teaching at their full potential.  It's a time when superintendents bring in guest speakers to motivate the troops and principals encourage their teaching staffs to believe that every student can succeed. Last year's grades are in the books, with the new year providing opportunities for a fresh start. It's akin to baseball's spring training or football's training camp, where every team tells the media that it has a legitimate chance of winning the championship.

A four-run deficit proved too large for the Los Angeles Easton Elite Dodgers 19-and-over summer collegiate baseball team, which dropped the opening game of the Stan Musial World Series, 6-2, to Canton, Ohio. The defeat sends the Dodgers (26-10) into a second-chance bracket game against a team to be determined at 10 a.m. PDT Friday in Farmington, NY. “This team has a lot of heart and fight and we're ready to roll on Friday,” Dodgers Coach Rick Freire said. “To win at this level, you can't make mistakes and we made too many.” The Dodgers trimmed a one-time four-run deficit to 4-2 entering the top of the eighth when they committed an error and extended the inning for Canton.

Many snapshot moments occurred throughout the 2013 Little League season. Some local teams repeated achievements from a year ago, like the Arroyo Seco Saints run to the Palomino World Series and the Crescenta Valley-Foothill Junior All-Star softball team's appearance in the Southern California State tournament. Other teams had the joy of soaking up all new experiences and success. After a wild walk-off game in the District Tri-Cities tournament, the Crescenta Valley Kiwanis and Aristo minor softball teams joined forces for a Crescenta Valley 9-10 All-Star softball run in which they racked up District 16 and Section 2 titles and advanced to the Southern California State Championship final - going as far as a 9-10 team could possibly go. Many players stood out on diamonds across the area before taking their talents to other regions.

LA CAÑADA - Its three-pronged formula for teaching the game of soccer certainly wasn't new, but also wasn't close to getting old in the St. Francis Summer Soccer Camp's 24th year. A group of about 45 campers tested their knowledge and skill not only on the soccer pitch, but in the classroom and gym at the weeklong clinic. It was hosted by director and Golden Knights Coach Glen Appels on St. Francis' campus from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday through Friday. The approach was effective for the diverse group, which ranged from boys and girls 8 to 18 years old and from beginners to players on Appels' varsity squad.

BURBANK - As the Glendale High boys' basketball summer schedule drew to a conclusion in a game with Sherman Oaks Center for Enriched Studies at Burbank High, the Nitros were still left pondering their rotation. “We've got some guys that compete hard and we've got some guys who are a little skilled and we'd like to develop. Really, the calculus for us is figuring out what combination [to put on the floor],” Glendale Coach Steve Snodgress said. “You can't go with all guys who have a little bit of skill, but don't want to defend, and you can't go with the sometimes tougher kids who can't find the bucket.” In the finale Thursday afternoon against the Knights, the Nitros seemed eager to end their summer on a high note.
