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.

BELLARMINE-JEFFERSON HIGH - It was nothing short of a dogfight Thursday evening when the Bellarmine-Jefferson High girls' basketball team took on a tough St. Anthony squad in a crucial Santa Cruz League game. Both teams took turns holding the lead throughout four quarters - with 13 lead changes and nine ties in the second and third quarters alone - with the Guards and the Saints not being able to take more than a five-point lead. But despite falling behind with less than two minutes left, Bell-Jeff maintained its composure, took advantage of some missed St. Anthony free throws in the final seconds and received a big rebound to earn a 64-60 victory at home.

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.

BURROUGHS HIGH — In a battle between a pair of sub-.500 teams on losing streaks, something had to change for the better for one and something was bound to continue spiraling downward for the other in the teams' Santa Fe League opener. Host Bellarmine-Jefferson had allowed 604 rushing yards in its previous two games, both losses, while only averaging a league-low 21.7 points a game. With first-time starter Mitchell Kellogg, a sophomore, at quarterback, the only thing the Guards were given was a 28-6 loss at the hands of the St. Anthony Saints.

BURBANK ? When disaster strikes, a diverse local humanitarian community often converges to provide large-scale relief to distressed countries in times of crisis. Saturday was no different, as the Burbank-based Islamic Relief Center teamed up with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to deliver more than 200 tons of emergency supplies to Indonesia after a massive earthquake ravaged the island of Java. "We've found it's a great working relationship, using Mormon resources and the Muslim organization's ability to do such a great job of distributing [relief supplies]

BELLARMINE-JEFFERSON HIGH — Bellarmine-Jefferson High football Coach Rolando Aguirre knew his team was in trouble when his players showed up for Saturday's nonleague with Santa Clara. "A lot of the players were out late at a dance [Friday night], and I told them because we had to meet at 7 [a.m.], they should get home early," Aguirre said. "But when they showed up in the morning with their eyes all bloodshot, I knew that was going to be bad for us. And in the game, they were falling all over themselves."
