Good morning readers. As you recover from the rare mid-week holiday, feast your tired eyes on these news bits from around the San Fernando Valley:  Officals are saying a man attempted to kill himself in the Horse Flats Campground area Wednesday. The campground is in the Angeles National Forest, about 30 miles from La Cañada. La Cañada Patch  Burbank police nabbed a man they say was driving a purloined Bentley. The suspect, oddly adorned in a motorcycle helmet and American-flag themed pants, was taken into custody after a brief chase.

When Arman Samsonian of Glendale slammed his SUV into a light pole and nearby fire hydrant one night in Valley Village, the lethal ramifications would come swift and without warning. In the moments that followed on that Aug. 22 night, two women - one from Burbank, the other from Valley Village - would die trying to render aid, stepping into water that had been electrified with 4,800 volts. On Wednesday, a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge handed down another ramification, ruling there was enough evidence for Samsonian to be tried on two felony counts of vehicular manslaughter with gross negligence.

Those who spoke used the inaugural hearing on Monday -- at the Burbank Airport Hilton -- to ask for relief from the buzz of jet noise around their homes. Burbank resident Ron Vanderford, a familiar face at City Council meetings, said the session was productive.

Top ten lists? They’re not just for Dave Letterman anymore. The Neiman Marcus catalog has them (“Top Ten Reasons to Love Balenciaga”). Time Magazine has them (“Top Ten Campaign Gaffes”). And Jet Propulsion Laboratory’s online solar system simulator (http://space.jpl.nasa.gov) has been named to several of them. Some weeks are so nice that they are a walking advertisement for life in Southern California. Who needs a vacation? Gas prices are down, so it’s time to pursue life.

VALLEY VILLAGE ? For the most part this season, the St. Francis High baseball team?s stacked lineup has had no problem collecting hits. But at times, the Golden Knights have struggled to cash those hits into runs. After struggling to find the timely hit in a Mission League defeat to Alemany less than 24 hours earlier, the same problem reared its ugly head on Saturday afternoon in a 6-4 nonleague road loss to Campbell Hall. The Golden Knights (11-5) outhit the Vikings (8-6)
