Gorgen Zargarian looks out the window as a young woman in a vintage yellow Volkswagen “Thing” pulls into his auto shop. “Hey baby, how is your car run?” he asks while clutching a mechanic's tool. “Do you have trouble with your transmission?” The 62-year-old self-described “young old man” then busts into song and dance amid three young women in cut-off denim shorts. So starts the web commercial for Arlen's Transmission, a Burbank auto shop in business for 22 years, produced by the comedy and directing duo Rhett and Link.

Andrew Kushner NORTH HOLLYWOOD -- After winning its first playoff game in school history, the Providence High girls' basketball team was hoping it could keep rolling along aginst Santa Ana Calvary Chapel High in the quarterfinals of the CIF Division IVA playoffs. However, Calvary Chapel proved to be too much for the Pioneers to handle, as they outscored Providence by 29 points in the first three quarters to run away with a 49-33 win Thursday at Oakwood High in North Hollywood.

Karen S. Kim BURBANK -- When Cecelia "Ceci" Stratford's boyfriend suggested in 1975 that she start taking flying lessons, he probably didn't figure that her love for flying would last much longer than her love for him. "I started taking flying lessons, and I got hooked," Stratford said. "I broke up with him, but I stuck with the flying." Since then, the 57-year-old Burbank resident has been flying recreationally with a private pilot's license over most of the Western United States and has owned her own plane for 15 years.

BURBANK VS. WEST HILLS CHAMINDAE WHEN: 7 p.m. Friday. WHERE: Memorial Field at Burroughs High. RECORDS: The Bulldogs are 1-0; the Eagles are 0-1. LAST WEEK: Burbank defeated La Canada, 28-0; Chaminade lost to Simi Valley Royal, 32-7. OUTLOOK: Probably the most important thing Burbank took away from last week's opening-season victory was a big boost of confidence. After a slow start in the first half, the Bulldogs pumped up their offense in the second half and easily turned back the Spartans.

WEST HILLS — It took less than 30 seconds for Burbank High quarterback Adam Colman to find Jose Rodriguez in stride for an 80-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter. Unfortunately for the Bulldogs, that was the lone bright spot on offense Friday night in a nonleague game against host Chaminade, which dominated both sides of the ball en route to a 37-6 victory. The Eagles (1-0) — ranked No. 3 in the CIF Southern Section Western Division — brushed off the touchdown by the Bulldogs — No. 1 in the Southeast Division — with one of their own less than two minutes later, and had already put up 30 on the scoreboard before Colman and Rodriguez prevented the shutout.

WEST HILLS — For the first half Friday it its nonleague game against Chaminade High, Burbank looked like a world-beater, as the Bulldogs were poised to pull off one of the biggest upsets in program history. Using a swarming defense, some trickery and inventive play-calling, the Bulldogs came out in the opening minutes and smacked the Eagles right between the eyes. Although Burbank held a seven-point lead against its ranked opponent after two quarters, the Bulldogs sputtered in the second half, opening the door for Chaminade.

BURBANK ? The Providence High boys' volleyball team was hoping to vie for the Liberty League championship this season. However, the Pioneers couldn't have imagined that they would end up with a third-place league finish, leaving them with a road match against a league champion in the postseason. Despite their disappointing regular-season finish, the Pioneers are determined to do well in CIF Southern Section Division V competition, and hopefully make a deep playoff run. Providence took a giant step in achieving that goal Friday when it dismantled host Pilibos, 25-11, 26-24, 25-12, in an opening-round match that took 54 minutes.
