LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE - Both the La Cañada and Temple City high football teams came into Friday night's Rio Hondo League game desperate for a win. The Rams were looking for their first win of the season, while the Spartans were looking for No. 2 and to break a five-game skid. La Cañada came out and played with more confidence than an average one-win squad and rolled through Temple City, 44-27. Spartans Coach Dan Yoder said his team can be pretty good "when they get that little bit of swagger.

If you listen closely this weekend, you may hear the sounds of deep sighing and soft giggling across the Crescenta Valley. Your teenage daughter, and perhaps your wife, may seem as if they are walking in a cloud. My advice to all husbands and boyfriends: don?t panic and, whatever you do, if you find them in a group whispering and giggling, leave them alone! They are in the Twilight zone. Not of Rod Serling?s making, but of Stephanie Meyers, the author of the ?Twilight? vampire book series.

Exhausted from partaking in nine playoff games in less than five weeks, Vince DeGuzman reflected on a historical season in which the Renaissance Academy basketball team won the CIF Southern Section Division VI championship. The Wildcats nearly returned to the Division V state final for the first time since 2008, but fell, 58-57, to Village Christian on Saturday in the Southern California regional championship game. Though still disappointed from the outcome, DeGuzman received a measure of good news Monday when the CIF Southern Section office unveiled him as the Division VI Player of the Year.

First-time California visitors traveling along the freeway sometimes are taken aback when, just about the time they reach Stockton, they see a big ocean-going freighter that seems a little like a whale swimming in your local river. After driving hundreds of miles through California’s hot, dry interior, it just doesn’t compute that there should be a ship anywhere even close. Yet ships do call on Stockton, and have for decades, as they make their way to the state’s interior through an intricate set of waterways sometimes called the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta or the Sacramento Delta, or just the California Delta.

They eat M&Ms in the dugout. Really. “They give us power,” said La Cañada junior John Love, as he stuffed a handful into his mouth during the Spartans’ league match against San Marino on Friday. Whether or not they work, La Cañada has put forth a solid effort to start the season. The Spartans started the year with a second-place finish at the Southern California Invitational, beating Nordhoff, Leuzinger, Paraclete and Flintridge Prep in the process.

Every family’s got skeletons in the closet. But at the La Cañada home of Rick and Molly Quiring, skeletons can be found in the closet, the attic, the garage and the backyard. Call it the inheritance of a Hollywood special effects guy who wants to share his love of Halloween with the community at large. “I love to make people squirm,” Rick Quiring confessed. “It’s work, but it’s fun.” This year, the Quirings’ 8th Annual Halloween Maze, at 4800 Grand Ave., is open to the public on Friday from 7 to 9 p.m. and Saturday from 7 to 10 p.m. It is free, though donations to the La Cañada Flintridge Educational Foundation are welcomed, and is one of several area Halloween events designed to fright and delight children and adults.

If you’re going to name a town for its greatest asset, the town fathers of Oceanside seem to have got that one right. Today more city than town, Oceanside is dressing up the city’s three and a half miles of wide, sandy beaches by bringing in new waterfront hotels, trendy restaurants and expensive homes and condos that all combine to beckon tourists from literally around the world. The old rap on Oceanside, home to Camp Pendleton, was that it was a military town and not the place to invest millions in your new beachfront home.

From top to bottom, the La Cañada High boys' golf team might have the pieces in place to advance to the CIF State Tournament in June. Until then, the Spartans have some goals along the way. One of the main ones will be shooting for a 10th straight Rio Hondo League championships with Collin Morikawa, Joshua Suh and Robby Stehlin back leading the charge. While a decade-long stretch of league dominance would merit satisfaction for some teams, the Spartans ultimately want to take the next step.

Pitching had paved the way to the La Cañada High softball team winning the past two CIF Southern Section Division V championships. Things will look a lot different this year without the benefit of a proverbial ace, like the Spartans enjoyed over the past three-plus years with Lauren O'Leary and Lauren Cox, and in a move up to Division IV. “I do think we have some pieces that are going to fit into place, step in and do a job for us,” La...

SAN MARINO - It can be hard for the San Marino High girls' tennis team to bring the same intensity into every match, but the Titans weren't lacking any fire when they hosted La Cañada High for each team's Rio Hondo League opener Thursday. It was a rough start to the league season for the Spartans, who couldn't pull out a single set in an 18-0 loss to San Marino after they finished second in league last season. “Today, I think they're focused,” said San Marino Coach Melwin Pereira of his No. 1-ranked squad in CIF Southern Section Division II. “We are playing teams that aren't pushing us and that's what I'm worried about, we don't have good quality nonleague matches.

There was plenty of pressure on Lauren Cox coming into her senior season with the La Cañada High softball team. It was the first time Cox would be the Spartans' primary pitcher and she was stepping into the role with a mountain of expectations facing her and the team. La Cañada entered the season atop the CIF Southern Section Division V poll, which made it the favorite to win the title for the second year in a row. In order to do so, the Spartans would need a bounce-back season from Cox, who watched most of the 2011 championship run from the sidelines after a leg injury derailed her junior season and put Lauren O'Leary front and center in La Cañada's pitching staff.

The U.S. Supreme Court's decision on Thursday to uphold President Obama's health insurance mandate will expand coverage to many uninsured Americans, but its effect on area hospitals remains unclear.

Parity flooded the Rio Hondo League this girls' basketball season a year after league powerhouse Monrovia High took the title with a perfect record. The Wildcats didn't have the luxury of counting out teams like La Cañada, South Pasadena and San Marino this year, as the Spartans and Tigers kept league title hopes alive late into the season.

Two La Cañada High wrestlers qualified for the CIF Masters Meet last year and the Spartans took home the Rio Hondo League crown, making 2010-11 one of the best seasons in program history. Things are much different for La Cañada this season. Both of the Masters qualifiers, Luke Sanborn and Chris Bache, graduated and Spartans Coach Gavin Williams is left with a lot of unknowns and a very young squad. The good news for Williams is that he has a very full, young roster with a total of 44 wrestlers in the program this year.
