It?s not the early season losses that will matter in the end for the Flintridge Prep football team. Rather, its the crucial stretch of Prep League games the Rebels find themselves in now that will determine the success of their season and they are currently playing their best football of the campaign. Behind a 406-yard team rushing performance and a defensive effort led by five interceptions, Prep defeated Viewpoint, 41-14, on Friday night at Occidental College, improving to 2-2 in the league, achieving their first two-game win streak of the year and building some much-needed momentum going into the season-finale showdown with Chadwick on which a playoff berth will hinge.

IRVINE — It was another second-half playoff comeback. It was another nailbiter decided by penalty kicks against a familiar foe. But for the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy soccer team, another round in the CIF Southern Section Division II playoffs was not to be. Having rallied to tie the match with less than five minutes remaining in regulation, second-seeded Sacred Heart rebounded against third-seeded Beckman to play inspired soccer...

Joe Puglia A very long time ago Eleanor Eckert climbed on her mother’s lap. “Mama, tell me a story”, she pleaded. That was more than 70 years ago and as I stare directly into Eleanor’s eyes and listen to the passion in her voice it is obviousher pleas were not made to satiate a need for attention. It was the story that would move Eleanor’s spirit and she would spend countless hours sitting in her mother’s lap listening to her recount the past.

We're coming up on the most patriotic day of the year, and it's not too late to make plans for a very special Fourth of July. Certain towns and places in California have better patriotic vibes than others and, if you're interested in a Mayberry USA Fourth of July — or some time paying homage to one of our nation's great military generals — we have some suggestions for you. First a couple of patriotic towns: Julian A trip...

I am stirred by the thought of chivalry. A devotion to ideals beyond our own self-interest is man's dominant quest. I think of Cervantes' immortal hero Don Quixote and his aria, "One man scorned and covered with scars still strove with his last ounce of courage to reach the unreachable stars; and the world was better for this." The fabled knight's passionate outcry defines chivalry as most idyllic. Don Quixote's battle with windmills throughout the Spanish countryside of Medieval Europe was a simple metaphor in his attempt to right all wrongs.

In the history of warfare I find it interesting how seemingly insignificant places take on a momentous importance. Valley Forge, the Alamo, Gettysburg, and Bastogne became symbolic as bastions of American resolve. With or without strategic significance they were held regardless of the cost of life. During the Vietnam War there was one such outpost just below the demilitarized zone, Con Thien. Con Thien, loosely translated, means “a place of angels.” The Marines who fought there understood no angels ever set foot on that hill.

On a recent evening I attended the Patriot Tour at the Pasadena Civic Center. It featured Marcus Luttrell, former Navy SEAL and lone survivor of the ill-fated “Operation Red Wing.” Special forces warriors Billy Wagasy, Pete Scobell and Chad Fleming were also present along with Tyra Kyle, wife of slain Navy SEAL Chris Kyle. The theme of the evening was patriotism. However, I saw a deeper message in their words. Patriotism is an ideal difficult to intellectualize. It's not a feeling, an idea, or a mandate.
