GLENDALE — Toshiteru Fujisaku had a performance that most No. 9 hitters would dream of having. Plate appearances have been hard to come by for the Glendale Community College baseball player throughout the season, but he hasn’t let it deter him from making the most of any opportunity handed to him by Coach Chris Cicuto. Fujisaku enjoyed his biggest moment of the season Thursday afternoon, as he hit a pair of three-run home runs and drove in seven runs to carry Glendale college to a 13-6 Western State Conference victory against rival College of the Canyons at Stengel Field.

VALENCIA — In holding College of the Canyons’ offense scoreless for the final 52-plus minutes of Saturday night’s Northern Conference National Division contest at Canyons, the Glendale Community College football team showed it really is just as good, if not better, than its recent string of stellar performances would indicate. But with another frustratingly mediocre performance, the Vaqueros’ offense did nothing to shake the reputation for ineffectuality that it has simultaneously developed.

Edgar Melik-Stepanyan People sometimes ask Glendale Community College women's basketball Coach Dyan Miller what the difference is between her program and College of the Canyons. Her response is direct: It's the players like Kaipresha Price and Gracie Coronado who make the disparity between a constantly successful team and a squad that always seems like its on the brink of becoming an elite team, but usually falls a step or two short. The predicament Miller faces is that those types of standout athletes opt to attend her Western State Conference Southern Division rival instead of helping the Vaqueros take that next step.

A partnership has developed between local artists and Chevy Chase Country Club that offers artists a venue to show their work and also provides artwork for empty walls of the Glendale club. Glendale resident and oil painter Dahl Delu knew there were several local artists in his neighborhood. He also knew how hard it was to find a place to show one’s work. “I noticed the country club’s restaurant, ballroom, bar and lounge have bare walls,” he said. “I asked them about us doing a group show there, and they said yes.” He called seven of his neighbors who are artists, and in three weeks they put together their first show in October.

As a result of a gift of 100 acres of canyon land in Stough Park in the mid-1950s from Joseph DeBell, the city of Burbank started development of the DeBell Municipal Golf Course. The city agreed to develop the course and name it in the donor’s honor. It also agreed to rezone, to multifamily, a hillside property DeBell owned far up on what was to become an extension of Walnut Avenue. Massive earth movement started to shave off ridge lines to fill in canyons for fairways and greens, but only after extensive surveying and core sampling had been done.

Gary Moskowitz HILLSIDE DISTRICT -- Patrick Dougherty is proud to say his 8-year-old son, Matthew, designed and cut the family pumpkin almost all by himself, and that the scary-faced jack-o'-lantern will sit ominously on the Doughertys' front porch until Halloween. The Dougherty family was one of several who attended a pumpkin-carving event at Stough Canyon Nature Center Saturday afternoon during which pumpkins were designed and cut for Halloween with the help of the nature center's staff.

Ryan Carter HILLSIDE DISTRICT -- A bullet fired from the Burbank Police Pistol Range ricocheted into a grassy area and started a brush fire, officials said. No one was injured when the fire consumed two acres shortly after 3 p.m. Saturday, just above the range at 2244 Wildwood Canyon Road, Burbank Fire Marshall Dave Starr said. Usually, a protective dirt berm above the range catches bullets that have gone astray, Starr said. But this one got away and landed in some brush, which combined with the heat of the bullet and wind, caused the fire.
