Rebels host Crusaders in nonleague contest With a defensive unit that is yielding an area-low 243.3 yards per game, it's hard to imagine the Flintridge Prep football team -- ranked No. 10 in CIF Southern Section Division XIII -- being in a must-win situation entering its nonleague contest with the Crusaders (2-2) at 7 tonight at Duarte High.

Karen S. Kim NORTHWEST GLENDALE -- Rob Tyler was about 20 when his mother called him back to Glendale from his three-month rock-climbing expedition in Yosemite National Park. Lenna Kast, then a newly divorced homemaker who "couldn't sit still," told her son that she'd bought J.P. Weaver with all the money she had after the divorce and was now the owner of a classical interior ornamentation business.

Charles Rich GLENDALE -- Pulling a lane chalker around the track several times prior to a dual track and field meet wasn't the most appealing part of the job. It didn't hinder La Crescenta resident Fred Koegler that he had been assigned that task shortly after he became an assistant coach on the Verdugo Hills High track and field team in 1972.
