Three years ago, "Little Sis" served notice. MVP of her team. First-team All-Pacific League selection. New leader. All those monikers belonged to Kristin McLaughlin, who stepped onto the pool deck at Crescenta Valley High as the younger sister of senior Heather McLaughlin. Soon enough, "Little Sis" became the backbone of the Falcon girls' water polo program. As a junior, she became the best player in the Pacific League. As a senior, she accomplished that feat again.

Josh Goldstein RANCHO DISTRICT-- For those who make a living recreating scenes of panic, excitement and danger for television and film, this was just too good for fiction. It was just after 8 a.m. Saturday when about 35 adult horses broke loose from a corral thanks to an unlatched fence at Circle K Stables near the intersection of Valley Heart Drive and Mariposa Street. Giddy in their newfound freedom, the horses galloped and trotted through the streets of Burbank, and some kept going to Glendale and Eagle Rock, police said.
