ARCADIA - The Burbank High baseball team has had a definite flair for the dramatic this week. In a Pacific League game Tuesday against Pasadena, the Bulldogs had to claw their way back from a seven-run deficit to salvage a victory. On Friday in a league contest against Arcadia, Burbank again found itself trailing - this time by two runs - headed into the final two innings. Undaunted, Burbank again mounted a spirited comeback, scoring two runs in the sixth inning to tie the score and two more in the seventh to pull out a 4-2 win against the host Apaches.

PASADENA - There was no lack of opportunities for either the visiting Burroughs High baseball team or Pasadena in Pacific League play Tuesday afternoon. What both teams were short on in a three 3 hour, 13-minute game was key contributions. Despite lacking in a few areas, though, the Indians overcame a furious Bulldogs' five-run rally in holding on for a 7-5 victory. “I told the guys after the game that we're going to have one of these types games where not much goes right,” Burroughs Coach Kiel Holmes said.

A North Hollywood man who aimed a commercial-grade laser at a private airplane and a Pasadena police helicopter was sentenced Monday to 30 months in federal prison. Adam Gardenhire, 19, pleaded guilty in October to one count of aiming the beam of a laser at an aircraft, which became a federal crime last year. Gardenhire was the second person in the nation to be indicted under the federal statute, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office. On March 29, 2012, Gardenhire aimed a commercial-grade laser at a privately-owned Cessna preparing to land at Bob Hope Airport in Burbank.

BURBANK - While it came down to the very end, the Pasadena and Burroughs high girls' track and field teams simply didn't have enough to outdo Glendale's Leana Setian and Lauren Hansen in Thursday's tri-Pacific League meet. The Nitros' duo combined for five victories in a narrow 68-60 win over host Burroughs. Setian and Hansen saved their best and most dramatic finish for last, as they teamed with Kenya Gaskin and Vard Sargsyan to take first in the 4x400-meter relay - the final race of the day - in four minutes 24.50 seconds to just edge Pasadena's team, which clocked in at 4:25.44.

BURBANK - A first half of frustration gave way to a second-half goal-scoring flurry for the Burbank High girls' soccer team Tuesday afternoon. Senior forward Maddie Carlborg led the charge for host Burbank, as the striker finished with a hat trick and had a foot in each goal, as Burbank responded with four unanswered scores en route to a 4-1 victory over Pasadena in Pacific League play. With the win, Burbank (11-6-1 overall, 6-1-1 in league) remained close with Arcadia (6-1-1)

BURBANK - It was not too long ago that the Burroughs High girls water polo team was in the same boat that Pasadena finds itself this season. The Bulldogs have a young team with just four seniors. The squad is still finding its way and still developing as a unit. The Indians are young as well, but they do have a few key experienced players from last season's CIF Southern Section Division V quarterfinal squad. That experience was evident Tuesday in a Pacific League match against host Pasadena.

BURBANK - There were two contests in one taking place during Pacific League girls' soccer action at Burroughs Memorial Field on Wednesday afternoon. The first revolved around a brutish game in which both teams combined for three cards, two ejections, two warnings against the crowd and a physical level of play that perhaps neither the Bulldogs or Indians were aptly prepared. The second and most important, revolving around simple wins and losses and league standing, was perhaps lost in the above interference, as host Burroughs, which, behind a hat trick from junior striker Emma Pineiro, was victorious versus Pasadena, 4-0. “It was definitely a physical game and some of my girls are not used to that stuff,” Burroughs second-year Coach Eddie Garcia said.

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank) is moving his district office from Pasadena -- where it's been for 16 years -- to new digs in Burbank, a move that puts the hub more squarely in a redrawn district. The new office - located at 245 E. Olive Ave., Suite 200 - is centrally located in the redrawn district, which now goes from the western part of Pasadena to West Hollywood. “It's pretty much smack-dab in the middle of the district,” Schiff said. His old office was only about three blocks from his new district boundary, but the location wouldn't have been as easily accessible to all of his constituents, he added.
