DAVID SILVA On the northeast corner of a major intersection in Huntington Park is a small fast-food restaurant -- an orange-gray, greasy-looking joint that looks like it's seen better days but actually never did. No one will ever try to preserve this restaurant as a historic landmark. Its architecture is dull and somewhat dysfunctional -- the drive-through lane is too narrow and the drive-through window so high drivers have to get out and stand to grab their orders.

A fight broke out at a Starbucks in Burbank Saturday over a cup of coffee, police said. A 44-year-old Huntington Park man was confronted at around 11:30 a.m. after he reportedly grabbed the wrong beverage at the pick-up counter, said Burbank Police Lt. Eddie Ruiz. The man who approached him insisted the coffee belonged to him, Ruiz said. Police did not know exactly what the beverage was. After a brief verbal exchange, the suspect left the North San Fernando Boulevard coffee shop and returned moments later with another man. The men then shoved and punched the Huntington Park man and fled the scene, leaving the victim with a black eye. “There was a misunderstanding whose coffee it was,” Ruiz said.

BOYS' BASKETBALL: Burbank defeats Bell-Jeff, 44-30, and Burroughs downs Huntington Park, 64-50. BELLARMINE-JEFFERSON HIGH -- There were two major factors that contributed to the outcome of the boys' basketball game between Burbank and Bellarmine-Jefferson highs. One was the Guards' inability to curtail the Bulldogs' transition game and the other was Bell-Jeff's propensity to give up the ball. Both played prominently in the Bulldogs' 44-30 pool-play victory in the Bell-Jeff Holiday Classic.
