A La Cañada family is wondering who could be vandalizing their home, over and over again, and what the reasoning is for doing so. ?We just don?t know why this is happening,? said Lou Pearl, a resident of the vandalized home. Pearl lives with his wife and daughter on Viro Road. In the last six months, his front yard has been vandalized seven times. The vandals always remove and disturb a yard display, then pull up and cut the wires from his watering system. The wires are usually cut up in four to six pieces and placed on the ground near the other items taken from the display.

BURBANK — Once his players step out on to the court, Flintridge Prep girls' basketball Coach Todd Frost isn't sure what he's going to see. Once thing is for certain — he's not used to seeing his team lose by large margins. Unfortunately for Frost, it's been customary throughout the first three weeks of the season. "It's hard to know because we are such a young team," Frost said after Flintridge Prep was handed a 52-21 loss by Village Christian on Monday in an opening-round contest of the 14th annual Pioneer Shootout at Providence High.

The LCF Planning Commission Tuesday was asked to come to the assistance of a local homeowner dealing with raids by hungry deer on his landscaping. Kirk Sellman said his yard on Big Briar Way became a deer buffet after he added landscaping around a retaining wall, at the instructions of the city. Sellman said he used different types of plants, including some deer allegedly don't like, and found they were all eaten. "I even used commercial coyote urine, and they ate that," he said.

A long season now comes down to one final game for the St. Francis High football team. It?s win or go home. The Golden Knights had an opportunity to secure one of the Mission League?s two playoff spots on Friday night, but a 19-14 loss to host Chaminade put a damper on those plans. With at least three league squads having a loss, a victory against St. Paul in the season finale could net a league co-championship and will keep St. Francis? season alive. ?We?ve got to try to go 2-1 in league and roll the dice and hope we get to 5-5,?

As beginnings go, one couldn’t have turned out much worse for the Flintridge Prep football team. In the battle of attrition that will no doubt be the 2008 Rebels’ season, only time will tell what was more devastating after Saturday evening at Poly High, a 45-20 season-opening upset loss to host St. Genevieve or the loss of starting quarterback/linebacker Gus Herrera to a dislocated shoulder. “I’m about as disappointed and disheartened as I’ve ever been in my football career,” said Rebels second-year Coach Perry Skaggs of losing Herrera, who was injured playing defense early in the second quarter with the game tied at 13. “It’s football and it’s unfortunate.

PASADENA — The St. Francis High baseball team's summer season didn't quite end the way Coach Brian Esquival would have liked. The Golden Knights fell to Mission League rival Crespi, 6-1, in the first round of the Valley Invitational Baseball League playoffs at Jackie Robinson Field on Wednesday, as double-play grounders killed any potential St. Francis rallies and the Celts did most of their damage with a two-out rally in the bottom of the...

RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA - Early as it was, the first two minutes of Saturday evening's CIF Southern Section Division 3-A semifinal at Santa Margarita High very much proved to be the deciding factor in the conclusion of the La Cañada girls' basketball team's season and the continuance of the host Eagles'. In the game's first 78 seconds, the Spartans were down by eight points and reigning All-Area Girls' Basketball Player Courtney Chen was on the bench with two quick fouls. Thus, despite a late, valiant charge by the Spartans, the early cushion was cushion enough, as second-seeded Santa Margarita, propelled by its full-court press, defeated third-seeded La Cañada, 69-57.
