GLENDALE — It's been a whirlwind 2006 for Jason Hirsh, to say the least. And Tuesday might very well have been the most shocking day of the year, as the 2000 St. Francis graduate was dealt by the Houston Astros to the Colorado Rockies. "It's been quite a ride and it's not getting any slower," said Hirsh from his parents' Burbank home. Hirsh was part of a five-player deal that sent the 24-year-old right-handed pitcher to the Rockies along with pitcher Taylor Buchholz and center fielder Willy Taveres for right-handed pitchers Miguel Asencio and Jason Jennings, Colorado's all-time wins leader.

GLENDALE — The following are updates on area Major League Baseball players .   Freddy Sanchez (Glendale Community College, 1998) Pittsburgh Pirates second baseman: When the Pirates traded All-Star center fielder Nate McLouth to the Atlanta Braves for prospects on June 3, Sanchez was affected by the repercussions in more ways than one. Sanchez was one of the more outspoken Pirates on the subject of the trade, one that many see as a move by the Pittsburgh front office to build for the future at the expense of the present season.

GLENDALE — Persistent rumors that swirled around baseball since prior to the All-Star break regarding a likely trade of Pittsburgh Pirates second baseman Freddy Sanchez to the San Francisco Giants were finally validated on Wednesday. The three-time All-Star and former National League batting titlist was swapped for Double-A starting pitcher Tim Alderson in a move announced shortly after Sanchez’s new club completed a three-game sweep of his former one with a 1-0 10-inning victory at AT&T Park.

Marlene Hitt From the earliest times, people have used any kind of goods that were hard to get and highly desired for means of exchange. Exchange goods could have been salt, or obsidian, nails or shells or gemstones. Giraffe tails were once used as money in a part of Africa and whale teeth were once used in Fiji. In the days of early California, there was a material for exchange that most of us haven't been aware of. From a book, "Leather Dollars" by Ana Begue Packman, comes this information: "The wondrous long-horned cattle which, in migrating from Mexico, were driven along destined for food and nourishment by the colonists of California under the standard of Spain, soon multiplied in great number in this spacious and fruitful country."

Three days ago, Sanchez sustained a minor injury to his right foot in a game playing for the triple-A Pawtucket Red Sox and was sidelined after suffering slight tendon damage.

Legislation has been introduced in the U.S. Senate that, if passed, would extend trade benefits to Armenia. The bill was introduced by Sens. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Paul Sarbanes (D-Md.), according to the Armenian Assembly of America. A similar bill is already pending in the House. The motivations behind the bill is to open up U.S.-Armenian trade relations, which historically has involved aid to the landlocked country. In the House version of the bill, many Armenian-Americans in the Glendale business community backed the provisions, which would knock down provisions that blocked free trade.

Throughout history, trade has been the great accelerator of civilization. Commerce between nations has promoted communication among cultures, advancement in the sciences and the arts and an understanding of the "interconnectedness" of humanity. These are just a few of the reasons why we see the latest push to increase trade between California and Yerevan, the capital of Armenia, as a positive thing. On the heels of a recent historic trade expo in Glendale featuring products and services, state Sen. Jack Scott (D-Glendale)

Mr. Ergun Kirlikovali's letter to the News-Press ("Trade with Armenia? Preposterous!" Community Forum, July 17) was really amusing. He was suggesting that the U.S. shouldn't trade with Armenia because Armenia had nothing to offer. Since he is so interested in Armenia's affairs, why couldn't he show up at the Armenian Expo last month, where he could have learned all the variety of goods and products that Armenia produces for export? Then he goes on, saying there are a million signatures gathered in Armenia to make Armenia part of Russian, like Belarus.

Our local politicians recently met at St. Mary's Apostolic Church to discuss increasing economic, social and cultural ties with Armenia. From the article, ("Forum aims to improve trade relations," June 21) all seemed to agree that setting up a trade office in Yerevan, the capital of Armenia, would be a good thing. It was said in the article that trade between the two countries would strengthen the California economy. State Sen. Jack Scott described it as a win-win situation.

The developer of the North Central Avenue Apartments project and the Glendale City Council swapped small slivers of land on Tuesday so work could proceed on the housing complex as well as the expansion of the adjacent Doran Gardens park. The council voted 5-0 to trade a 146-square-foot section of an alley on Columbus Avenue for an equivalent-sized section of land from Carmel Partners that abuts the park, located at 327 W. Doran St. Michael Fortney, a senior housing project manager with the city, said the vote was just an "administrative cleanup," but it adds to the existing plans to expand Doran Gardens Mini-Park by 12,897 square feet.

James Wan made his name as the director/co-writer of "Saw" (2004), which launched the most prolific horror franchise to emerge in the last 20 years. Even those put off by its naked sensationalism had to acknowledge that Wan (who was only 26) displayed a formidable technical mastery and an understanding of the nuts and bolts of the genre. (Don't confuse him with James Wong, who created "Final Destination. ") His new film is "The Conjuring," which bears a far stronger resemblance to his last effort, "Insidious," than to his prior movies.

Helmeted heads bobbed up and down to the rhythm of the pedals. It was a scene playing out at schools across the country Wednesday as thousands of students flicked up their kickstands and took to the streets for the first national Bike to School event. Sponsored by the National Center for Safe Routes to School, the ride was modeled after its International Walk to School Day - initiatives that are designed to foster pedestrian safety and healthy lifestyles.

Airport security tightened in Burbank and long-held emotions were cut loose in Glendale as news surfaced Sunday that U.S. Navy Special Forces had killed Osama bin Laden in Pakistan. β€œIt was the first time I cried in a long time, since we buried my brother,” said Brandon Valvo, a Glendale native whose brother Carlton Valvo II died at the World Trade Center when terrorist planes struck on Sept. 11, 2001. Valvo said a torrent of emotion coursed through him when he learned bin Laden had been killed, from elation and long-simmering anger, to gratitude for the work of U.S. armed forces and political leaders.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE β€” After his team squandered a nine-run lead, Flintridge Prep baseball Coach Buzz Cook didn't have much to say. Instead, Cook left it for the Rebels to figure out the reason for his silence. Flintridge Prep did in the nick of time. The Rebels scored five runs in the bottom of the sixth inning to record a sloppy 14-10 nonleague win against St. Michael's Prep on Tuesday afternoon at the Glendale Sports Complex. Flintridge Prep improved to 6-4 despite blowing a large lead and then seeing St. Michael's rally for a 10-9 lead in the top of the sixth.

He already has told St. Peter that the wakeup call is 6 in the morning.” LaLanne, known to many as the “godfather of fitness,” died Jan. 23 in Morro Bay at age 96. He is survived by his wife of more than 50 years and three children.
