PROVIDENCE HIGH — While strolling up a familiar driveway Thursday afternoon, James Jimenez received numerous greetings and well wishes from former students and co-workers. When he entered the Providence High gymnasium, Jimenez found himself preparing for a new chapter in his life as coach of the Holy Family volleyball team after spending the previous several seasons piloting Providence girls’ and boys’ volleyball teams. What Jimenez got several hours later might have been one of his more extra-special victories.

The question for fans of the Bellarmine-Jefferson High girls’ basketball team is: Can the Guards repeat their record-breaking postseason performance from a year ago? Last season, Bell-Jeff defeated Pinewood, 55-47, in the CIF State Basketball Division V Championships at Arco Arena in Sacramento. It was the first state title by any team — in any sport — in city history. The victory gave Bell-Jeff 34 wins, which set a new school record. In addition, the team ended the season on a 20-game winning streak.

This past weekend I had the privilege of visiting my godparents in the lovely, snow-covered hillsides of Elberta Village in northwest Michigan, on the shores of Lake Michigan. On my way home Tuesday, I could not help but wince at the Los Angeles weather radar being shown on Chicago O?Hare International Airport?s many flight status monitors. It was at that point that I realized how much I would prefer staying in the great northern country a little longer. Give me cold weather any time, minus the raindrops pelting me. I arranged my visit in part because it had been a while since I found myself in some nice powder, the prospect of going ice fishing with a cousin, and also to enjoy the company of family ?

BURBANK - Having proven to be one of the elite teams in CIF Southern Section Division VII over the last several seasons, the Bellarmine-Jefferson softball team is looking to put its mark on Division VI. The Guards reached the Division VIII championship contest the past two seasons before being moved up this year. PHOTOS: Bell-Jeff vs. Frazier Mountain softball Bell-Jeff passed its first postseason test Thursday, as Monique Landini came within a double of recording a cycle to help the second-seeded Guards register a 10-1 home victory against Frazier Mountain in an opening-round contest at Gross Park.

The news this week of the passing of South Pasadena High School senior Aydin Salek has made shock waves, from the scene of the incident and beyond. Reports indicate that Salek was attending an unsupervised party where he was offered alcohol. This is not unlike an incident in 1993 when a Crescenta Valley High School senior was killed at an unsupervised post-prom party. Who do you believe is at fault here? The parents? The students? Or both? What steps would you suggest to parents to deter this behavior?

PROVIDENCE HIGH — The Holy Family girls' basketball team ran into a torrent in the form of the Providence defense Monday in an opening-round, pool-play game of the 16th annual Providence Pioneer Shootout. The Pioneers used an oppressive full-court pressure to completely frustrate the Gaels in the opening quarter. Holy Family didn't help its cause either by suffering from poor shooing in the first half. Providence used the early defensive success to jump out to a big lead in the opening frame, as the Gaels weren't able to chip away at the advantage and the Pioneers rolled to a 51-16 victory in their own tournament.

PROVIDENCE HIGH — There weren’t many surprises among opponents when the Providence High girls’ basketball team took on Holy Family in their first-round postseason game Thursday. Gaels’ Coach Earnest Siy and his Pioneers’ counterpart, Andrew Bencze, know one another well, the teams compete in the Providence Summer League and with their schools in neighboring cities, many of the players are familiar with each other. In the CIF Southern Section VAA game at Providence, it was the Pioneers who were able to get the best of their friendly adversary, as the team’s torrid defense led to a 46-31 victory against the Gaels.

Darleene Barrientos A black bunting of mourning was replaced with bright white and yellow banners over the entrance of Holy Family Catholic Church, where parishioners celebrated the election of a new pope Tuesday. Before a cheering throng waving and chanting in St. Peter's Square Tuesday, Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, 78, of Germany introduced himself to the world as Pope Benedict XVI, calling himself a "simple, humble worker." Having a new pope was a relief to Catholics in Glendale, Burbank and the foothills, some of whom had described themselves as "orphans" since Pope John Paul II died April 2. "I'm delighted.
