Sang Lee MCCAMBRIDGE PARK POOL -- First-year Burbank High girls' water polo Coach John Abdou wasn't upset with his squad's 12-3 nonleague loss to Temple City. It wasn't because he felt his team was incapable of winning Monday at McCambridge Park Pool, but rather, he knew that in only the second match of the season, mistakes would be inevitable. "To us, it felt like a preseason game. These girls need more game-time experience. That's the only way you get better, by playing more," Abdou said.

Molly Shore Gov. Gray Davis' recall election received collateral damage Wednesday when 56-year-old action hero Arnold Schwarzenegger declared his candidacy for governor. It was great news to Schwarzenegger devotees, but others raised their eyebrows at the prospect of "Conan the Barbarian" taking up residence in the governor's mansion. Whether for or against having another actor in the statehouse -- former President Ronald Reagan, a longtime B-movie actor, was California governor from 1967-75 -- people strolling along San Fernando Boulevard on Friday were eager to express their opinions on Schwarzenegger's starring role in California's political blockbuster: "Arnold Schwarz- enegger seems like a nice person.

Darleene Barrientos In Bob New's opinion, state Sen. Jack Scott (D-Burbank) is a prince of a man, but that doesn't change his view on Scott's politics. "He's sure a swell guy. He's a very, very nice man. He has a lovely wife and I think she's a closet Libertarian," New said, laughing. "But politically, he's tried to pass a lot of silly gun laws and believes in controlling people and taxing people. Of course, that's the Democratic point of view. It doesn't detract from his character or intelligence, but he's gone the wrong way, as far as we think."
