Good morning to you, readers. As you get ready for the week, check out these headlines from La Cañada, North Hollywood and Encino.  Walmart, which is looking to open a store in Altadena, is planning a community meeting this Thursday in that community.  The mega-retailer tends to make people nervous, so there should be a pretty good turnout.

Yumi Man's performance of Dvorak's Violin Concerto in 2000 created such a sensation that she will return for another performance on March 20 at 8 p.m. with the Valley Symphony at Los Angeles Valley College's recital hall, at 5800 Fulton Ave. in Valley Glen. At the tender age of 16, she will perform Mozart's 5th Violin Concerto and works by two other great Viennese classical composers, Haydn and Beethoven. Tickets to the performance are $20 general admission, and $15 for students and seniors.

VALLEY GLEN — Down three points with 4:30 left and 60 yards to go, the St. Francis High football team’s offense seemed dead in the water. The Golden Knights’ star player was on the sideline and it didn’t take a second look at a dejected Dietrich Riley laid out on a trainer’s table to figure out he wasn’t coming back in. Not exactly the stuff storybook endings are made of, but, for St. Francis, there was still plenty of time for a rewrite.

Edgar Melik-Stepanyan VALLEY GLEN -- Following Friday night's game against Los Angeles Valley Community College, the Glendale Community College women's basketball team once again left people shaking their heads after its remarkable comeback. Like many times this season, spectators questioned the Vaqueros inconsistent play in the first half of their Western State Conference Southern Division game as they fell behind by as much as 12 points. But reminiscent of earlier performances, GCC battled back in the second half to defeat the Monarchs, 63-58, at L.A. Valley College.

Mirjam Swanson VALLEY GLEN -- Crescenta Valley Coach Peter Kim knows his girls' water polo team doesn't like to hear it, but he's made a habit of being honest with his players anyway. More than once over the past couple years, he's reminded them -- the majority of whom are currently juniors -- that before they can achieve total success, they're going to have to take some lumps. They swallowed a bitter, painful lump Friday, losing, 9-7, despite leading Harvard-Westlake for most of three quarters in their CIF Southern Section Division III semifinal match Friday at L.A. Valley College.

VALLEY GLEN — They cut down on their mistakes. However, it didn’t do the members of the St. Francis High baseball team much good. Style points don’t translate into victories. One miscue led to the Golden Knights’ undoing against one of the top teams in Southern California. St. Francis got a stellar effort from starting pitcher Ethan Bramschreiber, but it wasn’t enough in a 1-0 Mission League road loss to powerful Crespi on Friday afternoon at windy L.A. Valley College.

Erik Boal VALLEY GLEN -- CIF Southern Section quarterfinal contests are all about separating the elite teams from the better-than-average ones. The evidence: Saturday's Division III girls' water polo playoff match between Crescenta Valley High and Chino at L.A. Valley College. The Falcons, the No. 2 seed and two-time defending Pacific League champion, are among the division's elite, but as the Cowgirls -- who finished in the Baseline League behind fourth-seeded Upland -- found out in the second half, they are still a few steps behind.

Peter Samore VALLEY GLEN -- Heading into the last week of the regular season, everything seems to be going Glendale Community College's way. Simply put, the Vaquero baseball team is healthy, their pitchers are strong and their batters keep hitting home runs. This trend continued Saturday against L.A. Valley College, as three GCC batters homered and three pitchers bore down on the Monarchs en route to a 12-3 Western State Conference Southern Division victory.

VALLEY GLEN - On paper, the Glendale Community College football team looked to have its best chance to pick up its first American Division Pacific Conference win of the season and end a four-game losing streak when going on the road to face a Los Angeles Valley team that was winless. But to accomplish this, the Vaqueros would have to do without their best weapon on offense, with running back Collin Keoshian suspended for the game, starting tackle Steven Escobaza removed from the team, quarterback Ki Bae starting only his second game, and a myriad of injuries.

VALLEY GLEN - Trailing by one run in the ninth inning, the Glendale Community College baseball team had the rare fortune of seeing its first two batters of the inning safely reach base without putting a bat on the ball, or even take a swing. Having each been hit by a pitch, David Garcia and Matt McCallister watched from the bases as the top of the lineup executed to bring them both home and turn a one-run deficit into a one-run lead going into the bottom of the ninth. Then in the bottom half, Vaqueros reliever Kirk Edson pitched a perfect frame to secure the 5-4 victory over host L.A. Valley College in a Western State Conference South contest Saturday afternoon.

VALLEY GLEN - The stage was set for the Renaissance Academy boys' basketball team to knock off La Verne Lutheran, the No. 2 team in CIF Southern Section Division IV-AA. The Trojans were without their dominant power forward Grant Jerrett, who injured his ankle Tuesday, and the Wildcats controlled the first half and were sitting pretty with a 15-point lead midway through the third quarter. Then everything started to unravel for Renaissance, the top-ranked team in Division VI, as La Verne Lutheran started clicking and dominated the last 12 minutes of the game to pull off a 54-45 comeback victory at L.A. Valley College on Wednesday night.
