Good morning, readers. Today is Sunday, October 14. If you take a drive through Laurel Canyon today, you'll find some remnants of a past generation.  The canyon, which connects the Valley to West Hollywood, became a retreat for musicians in the 60s and 70s. Jim Morrison, The Monkees and Joni Mitchell all lived in the neighborhood. A video on ABC looks at Laurel Canyon's musical roots. When you're watching your favorite TV show, do you ever wonder how many jobs it created?

We take hushed steps toward our target, but the pebbly asphalt of the Wildwood Canyon road adds a crunch to our steps that gives us away. It's that easy to lose your mojo. The towhee, once safely stooping for a drink from the runoff from a morning sprinkler shower, flicks his head to spy us with a bright, blood-red eye. Then he's back in the brush to wait out these possible predators: me, my wife and our guide, Nick Wilhelm. But we're just here to watch the little guy. His black head and white-and-black banded wings cover a stout orange breast, reminding me of a robin.

BURBANK HIGH - Communication, chemistry and consistency are all important elements to winning volleyball, and the Burbank High girls' squad displayed all three in its nonleague victory Tuesday against visiting Canyon. “The way we played together, our communication, and all the chemistry that we have [paid dividends],” Burbank senior Katie Hooper said were the keys to their second win in as many matches this season. Burbank won, 25-18, 22-25, 25-20, 25-22, to stay unbeaten going into Pacific League play, which starts Thursday against host Muir.

BURBANK — In the second round of its host tournament, the Burroughs High girls' basketball team ran into an opponent that simply outplayed it in all facets of the game. The 62-41 final score ended a loss to Sierra Canyon in which the Indians trailed throughout, and by double-digits from the second quarter on. Riddled by injuries, Burroughs' rotation consists mostly of freshmen and sophomores, but Coach Vicky Oganyan only wanted to focus on the players on the court, not the ones on the bench.

CANYON COUNTRY — The Burroughs High football team continued its daunting nonleague gauntlet through tough Foothill League competition with a game against Canyon Country Canyon on Friday evening. The Indians opened the season last week with a loss to Saugus, and following the game against the Cowboys, they end their nonleague schedule with a contest against Hart on Thursday. Burroughs Coach Keith Knoop is hoping his squad will be able to learn and grow as a result of playing against solid opponents and that learning curve will prepare the Indians for Pacific League play.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — Shortly after helping the Crescenta Valley Junior All-Star softball team win the District 16 championship against Burbank on Tuesday night, pitcher Olivia Thayer paused briefly before describing the makeup of her team. "Our team is like a puzzle and we know how to put the pieces together," Thayer said after Crescenta Valley posted a 15-1 victory in the championship game called after six innings because of the 10-run mercy rule at Scholl Canyon Ball Fields.

A 42-year-old Burbank man fell to his death at the Grand Canyon National Park on Friday as he reportedly attempted to hop from one rim outcropping to another, according to the National Park Service. The man, identified as Andrew N. Stires, fell 500 feet around 1 p.m. just off the trail between Pipe Creek Vista and the visitor center on the South Rim of the canyon, according the agency. A Forest Service representative could not be reached. Authorities were unable to recover his body until Saturday due to high winds and thunderstorm activity.

CANYON COUNTRY — It only took seconds for the Burroughs High football team to get the hot start it needed. Defensive back Bo Faunce picked off Canyon quarterback Jonathan Jerozal on the third play of the game to set up a touchdown from running back Tadeo Zuniga on the ensuing next play. But while Cowboy fans sat baffled at their slow start, the game developed into a back-and-forth thriller that ended in a 37-31 Canyon victory Saturday, as Jerozal and the offense outmatched the Burroughs' defense, leaving the Indians with a defeat on the road.
