The La Cañada High School junior varsity team continued its winning streak last week with two more victories. Last Tuesday they played Carter and the game was on the line down to the last out of the final inning. Carter was up by one as La Cañada came up to bat in the bottom of the seventh. Two runners were on base with two outs. Max Russell hit a bomb to left field which brought everyone in for a winning score of 5-4. The Spartans' bats were on fire with an earlier triple from Andrew Schiller that shot right over the center fielder's head.

While it's hard to say that one play won or lost the game, it was one play that turned the tide against the Crescenta Valley Major Baseball All-Stars. The play was a groundball in the fifth inning hit directly to Crescenta Valley second baseman Corey Tavizon, who attempted to tag the Claremont runner on his way to second base. The umpire ruled there was no tag applied and the inning continued with no outs and two runners on base. Claremont would use the boost to score five runs in the frame and hold on for a 9-3 victory in the winner's bracket of the North Sub-Divisional on Tuesday in La Mirada.

The lights went out last night even though we paid the bill. We lit the candles and played a card game like the old days, with no heat 'til it got too cold. We did a charade   to guess what word each other was but no one guessed. Little things like that cause no fuss in our household. Tall white candles aglow, down jackets zipped up and lots to discuss.   We make do with what we've got and wait for the power to come on again at dawn, relying on what games we create or what talks we had, games played or pictures drawn.

Now that the dust has settled and everyone can look back at the 2010-11 sports year, there's no doubt the campaign goes down as one of the best for La Cañada Flintridge athletes and their respective teams. Flintridge Prep, Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy and La Cañada High athletes garnered a wide range of individual accolades and succeeded at a number of different levels. Outstanding individual performances led to playoff appearances and two CIF Southern Section girls' championships — a Division I title for Sacred Heart's soccer team and a Division V crown for La Cañada's softball team.

Joe Wiggan had to make his share of unexpected adjustments this past season playing for the Burroughs High football team. But the type of changes employed by the durable senior running back had noting to do with opposing defenses or his running style. Instead, Wiggan's adjustments were personal. "I had set certain goals for myself before the season," said Wiggan, a 5-foot-10, 180-pound wrecking ball who punished defenders with a combination of durability and brute force. "But as the season went along, I was able to reach some of those goals, so I had to set new ones.

Our daughter Rachel called via the Internet to talk about her college friends. Last quarter, she lived in a cooperative residence hall where 50 students, all undergraduates, cooked for one another. The rules were simple. The meals were "vegetarian with a vegan alternative." In plain English, this means that some of the food was made of vegetables, grains, pasta, eggs or cheese. The rest of the menu had neither eggs nor dairy and was the "vegan alternative." Rachel came home last December with new recipes, mostly for lentils and garbanzo beans.

SAN MARINO - In its quest to reclaim the Rio Hondo League title, La Cañada High softball's success has come very much with a heavy dose of heavy hitters. That was the case and then some on Tuesday afternoon, as the Spartans collected 21 hits, highlighted by five home runs, in an 18-7 league win over host San Marino. “If we can play to our potential and abilities, we can win a league championship,” said Spartans Coach KC Mathews, whose team finished in a three-way tie for second place last season and is currently 13-7, 6-2 in league for second place, trailing Monrovia (7-1 in league)

LA CAÑADA - With San Marino High pitching ace Jeff Bain not in the lineup, the prospects, if not odds, certainly seemed in favor of the La Cañada baseball team at the onset of its Rio Hondo League home game Friday afternoon. Yet, fortune was not on the side of the Spartans, who ran into a buzz saw in the form of San Marino No. 2 pitcher Miles Glazier. The junior left-hander was direct with his fastball and economical with his pitch count, which spelled doom for a La Cañada squad that didn't capitalize on its opportunities and fell, 6-0. “The difference was we just didn't get key hits,” Spartans Coach Alex Valadez said.

MONROVIA - While neither the La Cañada High or Monrovia baseball teams could claim they hit exceptionally well in clutch situations in Wednesday afternoon's Rio Hondo League meeting, the Spartans walked away with two distinct advantages.

The Spartans (9-5, 2-1) finished one for 12 with runners in scoring position with two RBI and stranded nine baserunners, while Monrovia (7-6, 2-2)

To call the sandy-haired Terry Cannon a baseball fan is to damn with faint praise. He's a baseball obsessive. But Cannon is no Rain Man with batting averages, career wins and losses, and career RBIs rolling around in his head. He's fascinated with the little-known sociopolitical aspects of the national pastime's history. Which is where the Baseball Reliquary, his "traveling museum of baseball," comes in. Cannon is something of a Renaissance man and his name should be familiar to the Pasadena arts community.

With a March 4 election looming, La Cañada Unified School District officials and supporters are hopeful their efforts to convince the community of the need for a $450, seven-year parcel tax to maintain top-notch schools and programs have resonated with local voters. Residents within district boundaries have been asked to decide the fate of Measure LC in a mail-in ballot the Los Angeles County Registrar's Office recommends be mailed out by Thursday. The Yes on LC citizens' campaign has relied largely on people power to help garner support, with parents, teachers and community members calling in a volunteer phone bank and participating in a Feb. 1 precinct walk.

St. Francis completed the regular season portion of its schedule Wednesday night with a 69-59 league road defeat against Chaminade. “It turned out to be a rough second-half stretch for us,” said St. Francis junior forward John Carroll, who finished with 16 points.
