A woman was transported to a local hospital Friday with minor injuries after her car went over the side of a road in Burbank. The woman was allegedly driving down Orange Grove Terrace before realizing the street turned into a dead end. When she tried to turn around, her car went over the side and ended up in the parking lot of the Church of Later Day Saints. The car had two passengers, who climbed out before Burbank firefighters arrived on scene. The driver was trapped, however, and firefighters used jaws of life to extricate her from the vehicle.

BELL-JEFF VS. SANTA CLARA WHEN: 7 p.m. today. WHERE: Memorial Field at Burroughs High. RECORDS: It is the season opener for both team. LAST YEAR: The Guards defeated the Saints, 32-6. OUTLOOK: Their first few games will likely determine how successful the season will be for the Guards (9-2 and Santa Fe League champions last season). With the loss of most of its offensive impact players, Bell-Jeff will have to rely on athletes who are untested at the varsity level.

Jews are most likely to marry outside their religion, while Mormons are least likely, according to the results of a 2010 survey of interfaith marriage . The study found that the rate of interfaith marriage in America is around 42%. But, says writer Stanley Fish, many couples of different faiths who decide to marry don't know what they're getting into. "Interfaith couples tend to marry without thinking through the practical implications of their religious differences. They assume that because they are decent and tolerant people … they will not encounter difficulties being married to someone of another faith," he says.

LONG BEACH — The Bellarmine-Jefferson High girls' basketball team shared a Santa Cruz championship in 2008. It was the program's first title in a decade. The next three seasons would see the Guards breeze to a trio of league crowns, as Bell-Jeff was rarely pushed by opponents in league competition. But this season, St. Anthony — chalk full of talented players — was determined to dethrone the Guards. That almost happened three weeks ago when the Saints were in the game late, but lost to the host Guards by four points.
