A 62-year-old pedestrian was hospitalized when she was struck by a sedan Thursday after the driver lost control of the car, police said. At 7:30 a.m., the 22-year-old motorist was reportedly speeding eastbound on Alameda Avenue approaching Chavez Street when he lost control of the car and slammed into two parked cars, said Burbank Police Sgt. Darin Ryburn. The impact caused the vehicle to spin and hit the pedestrian crossing the street, he added. The woman was transported to a hospital with a possible broken leg, Ryburn said.

MEMORIAL FIELD--The Bellarmine-Jefferson High football team has learned to control the ball and the clock. Now it just needs to find a way to control the score. Despite holding visiting Vasquez High to less than 100 second-half yards, giving up three first-quarter touchdowns was too much to overcome, as Bell-Jeff fell to the Mustangs, 35-14, Saturday night in a nonleague game at Memorial Field. Vasquez scored on its first three possessions, on touchdown runs of 49 and 68 yards by Sergio Blattenberger and Travis McKelvey, respectively, and an eight-yard pass from quarterback Joe Perez to Shea Sanna.

The day you get laid off usually starts like any other. But it sure ends differently. When I’m not waxing rhapsodic in this column each week, I work in the entertainment industry full time. Or at least I did. Until two weeks ago. After overseeing the layoff of several colleagues, hearing things like “economic downturn,” “declining revenues” and “difficult cutbacks” repeated to each, I moved from one side of the table to the other. Terminator to terminatee.

SAN MARINO -- Pat Gillan's defensive strategy wasn't much different than any other opposing coach when it came to stopping the Burbank High girls' basketball team. San Marino's fourth-year mentor said if his squad could contain senior Christine Kepenekian and limit the Bulldogs' second chances, the Titans stood a good shot of winning Monday night's nonleague game. The strategy worked for the first 22 minutes, but the final 10 told a different story at San Marino High.

Laura Sturza CIVIC CENTER -- City Council members are voicing objections to rent control as a way to rein in Burbank's housing prices. "I've heard horror stories about rent control," Councilwoman Stacey Murphy said at Tuesday's council meeting. "There's always ways for landlords to go in a back door, to say they're doing capital improvements and get it back that way. And there's just too much of a tendency for slumlords." Burbank's biggest housing challenge is a lack of affordable, large units for low-income renters, Redevelopment and Housing Manager Susan Evans said.

BELLARMINE-JEFFERSON HIGH - Having beaten rival Providence High in four straight cross-town matches, the Bellarmine-Jefferson girls' volleyball team has definitely had the upper hand in the clash the past few years. However, as inconsistent as the Guards have played this season, no one on the Bell-Jeff team¿ was ready to look past the Pioneers. Although Providence played well at times - holding leads in two of three games - the Guards were able to hold off the threats to earn a 25-23, 25-14, 25-20 nonleague victory Thursday at Bell-Jeff.

CITY HALL?The council opted against pursuing an interim ordinance that would temporarily control development in the Rancho District, choosing to confront the issue in three weeks when an item specifically concerning the Rancho Master Plan goes before the council. The decision came after a council consensus that wrangling over the specifics of an Interim Development Control Ordinance, or IDCO, would be unnecessary in light of a forthcoming staff report that will outline zoning in the Rancho District and how some amendments have changed permitted land uses.

Jeff Tully After practicing and working out with the Burroughs High football team for nearly three hours, Chris Pennington showed up a little late for the Indians' boys' summer-league soccer match against Valencia. Upon Pennington's arrival, Burroughs Coach Mike Kodama asked the senior if he was too tired to play in the contest Monday at Luther Burbank Middle School. Pennington replied: "I'm never too tired to score." And that's exactly what he did, as he tallied a goal and played well in the Indians' 5-1 win against their Foothill League rival.

MCCAMBRIDGE PARK - Michelle Santiago knew when she felt the impact on her bat and watched the ball loft toward right field that she had done her job. Just a freshman, Santiago stepped into a pressure situation Thursday with one out in the rival softball game against Burbank. With an Indians runner on third base in the eighth inning, the third baseman was just trying to get her bat on the ball. On a 1-2 count, Santiago lifted a fly ball to right that scored Brice Edrington to give Burroughs a 2-1 victory in the Pacific League game at McCambridge Park.

BURROGHS HIGH — After seeing how close the Burroughs High boys' water polo team played Glendale's archrival Hoover in the first half on Tuesday, the Nitros made sure not to fall into the same predicament when they met the Indians in a Pacific League match at Burroughs on Thursday. The match was never close, as Glendale scored the first 10 goals and had little trouble holding off Burroughs for a 15-4 win. Glendale (15-6, 4-1 in league) led, 5-0, by the end of the first quarter after getting goals from Mamikonyan, David Grigorian, Martin Narinyan, Manuk Hakobyan and Martik Chatalyan.

Should Rep. Adam Schiff be defended? For that matter, should President Obama be held liable for the national deficit, the stimulus plan, the bloated budget and the health-care-cost trends? In his March 10 letter, “Representative trying to kill the economy,” Brian Stauffer expressed his fear of more deficits and demanded fiscal prudence for the sake of the future of our nation. I fully agree with his sentiments. Washington seems to have forsaken our financial future.
