What was supposed to be a drier, gustier day across some parts of Southern California - prompting a red-flag fire warning from forecasters - won't be as dry and gusty as anticipated. The National Weather Service has canceled its red-flag warning for the Los Angeles and Ventura county mountains, as well as valley areas in the Santa Clarita region and Ventura County. The warning was expected to expire early Tuesday afternoon, but was canceled by 9 a.m. Monday. The reason, meteorologist Bill Forwood said, is because the weather conditions didn't develop as forecasters expected.

Saro Sarkisian SYLMAR -- When the Skyward Christian football team faced Trinity Lutheran Saturday in the first Omega League game for both teams, the smartest thing Trinity Lutheran might have done was showing up with nine players at First Lutheran High School. Skyward Christian had a 36-8 lead at the break and it seemed pointless for the Mustangs to continue with players playing hurt and not having anyone to substitute, so the game was called, saving the Mustangs further embarassment.

Buck Wargo CITY HALL -- The future of Walt Disney Co.'s plans to create a high-tech campus in Glendale rests with Los Angeles County and its willingness to loosen its purse strings.

AIRPORT DISTRICT — Southern California rail officials agreed Friday to temporarily continue running eight Ventura County-line trains that pass through Burbank and Glendale after having put them on the chopping block to save money. Bob Hope Airport officials decried the possible service cut as a short-sighted hit to area business interests, especially as the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority moved ahead with a planned $120-million regional transportation center. Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority representatives, who serve on Metrolink’s Board of Directors, offered Friday to cover the cost of operating the Ventura County-line trains through June, said Glendale City Councilman Ara Najarian, who serves on the board for both agencies.
