Last week, I found myself in a vaporetto, or water bus. The pistachio-colored waves gently rocked it back and forth as I climbed on board. After a day of rain, the sun had emerged, albeit cautiously, allowing me to fully revel in the history dripping from the brick-and-mortar buildings. I was in Venice, a city with eons of history, spectacular art and breathtaking scenery where more than 20 million people visit per year, making it one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world.

LOS ANGELES - Just inches away from touching the goal line, Christian Hess caught the kickoff and hustled downfield. What the St. Francis High football player didn't count on was racing the length of the field untouched and providing his team with a much-needed touchdown and a boost of energy. Hess proved how valuable he can be for St. Francis, as he scored two touchdowns to power the visiting Golden Knights to a 27-17 intersectional victory against host Venice on Friday night.

GLENDALE - Scoring two-out runs has been a bane during the first couple of weeks of the season for the Hoover High baseball team. It's led to Hoover second-year Coach Brian Esquival addressing the matter with the Tornadoes and looking to change their fate when such situations arise at the plate. Apparently, Hoover got the message. Hoover scored seven runs with two outs to register a 9-2 home win against Venice on Friday in an L.A. Poly Tournament contest. “We talked about getting better at it and knowing how deflating it can be to the other team when you get those kind of hits,” said Esquival, whose team improved to 3-2 after splitting the first four games in the Southern California Invitational.

PATRICK AZADIAN Going on vacation needs to have a cause beyond just relaxation for me. Otherwise, guilt kicks in rapidly. It's a formula extracted from my Armenian roots: If I am having fun, I should feel guilty. Instead of getting over the hang-up, I've discovered a way to trick my brain. I've found an excuse to spend time in Italy every other year, as Venice is home to the International Art Biennale. I am hoping non-commercial art will fuel my creativity and benefit my profession in the graphic arts.

Hamlet Nalbandyan Jason Azizi admitted he was surprised by his selection to the eighth annual Valley Youth Conference East-West All-Star football game. After all, there were a total of 33 Division I players in the contest, and Azizi -- a senior defensive lineman from Hoover High -- doesn't exactly come from an accomplished program like Newhall Hart or L.A. Loyola. But Azizi showed that he could compete with some of the best players in Southern California, playing about half the game at defensive end for the East team Sunday at Birmingham High in Van Nuys.

HOOVER HIGH--Led by James Jenkins' 29 points and three other scorers in double digits, Crescenta Valley High School romped Venice High School in the Hoover-Burbank Championship game, 87-67. The Gondoliers made only one major run early in the third quarter, but the Falcons dominated most of the game. "Every time they made a run, we had an answer," CV Head Coach Jim Smiley said. "Our guys played hard and, more importantly, they played smart." The Falcons had all the right moves in the first half.

Next July I'll be on my trip to Venice, Italy, for the International Art Biennale. I can't wait. Trying to compare Venice to Glendale maybe an impossible task, but I can't help it. As soon as I arrive in the not-so-eternal city I begin the hopeless process. Venice is a world of the past. Without tourists, international exhibits and universities, it is a ghost city. Underneath its beautiful facade, lies a corpse, which has not been breathing for centuries. With its wealth of architectural masterpieces, it is difficult to see how any government can preserve all that's there.

What do you get when you cross the creative son of a Venetian espresso salesman with a passion for all things Disney, an eye for carnival costume design, a love of origami and a musical ear? The result is artist Ennio Marchetto and his ever-evolving live performance, “The Living Paper Cartoon” appearing Aug. 23 through 28 at the Pasadena Playhouse. The 51-year-old Ennio, a self-described clown, unfolds a unique, musical-comedic parody of current pop stars and classic icons using quick-change costumes made of paper and cardboard.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE — In an intersectional matchup with Venice High that was predicted to be a shootout, the most potent weapon in the St. Francis football team's arsenal turned out to be a fire extinguisher. Setting a tone of defensive dominance from the first quarter, the Golden Knights effectively cooled off the Gondoliers' high-powered offense to pick up a 31-13 nonleague win on Friday night at Friedman Field. "I was so proud of our defense," said St. Francis Coach Jim Bonds, whose team improved to 3-0. "Just the three and outs early in the game were huge against a high-powered offense.

Every spring it happens without warning. There is nothing you can do about it except lock yourself in a room or make an excuse to go to the library or dentist. Trust me, eventually the rubber gloves and bucket come out. That’s right. Spring cleaning has arrived, and my mom is in her cleaning frenzy. This year, I discovered the perfect escape from her bucket brigade. I offered to go get her one of her favorite sandwiches for lunch. Fortunately, I knew the perfect place to save me from Mom’s involuntary cleaning draft, Venice Deli in Burbank.
