Taking to heart the adage, "If at first you don't succeed, try and try again," Anaheim Canyon High kept launching three-point shots at Honda Center on Saturday in the Southern Section 2AA boys' basketball championship game against Westlake Village Westlake. The Comanches made only two of 14 three-point shots in the first half, but Coach Nate Harrison didn't tell his players to stop firing away. They made eight of 13 in the second half and defeated Westlake, 71-54. Point guard Anthony Ballestero scored 20 points and junior Nick Anderson had 20 points and 16 rebounds.

 Sierra Canyon won't be getting a banner to put up in the gym after winning Friday night's Open Division consolation bracket with a 66-62 victory over Bishop Montgomery, but the Trailblazers certainly earned lots of respect and will likely gain the No. 1 seed in Division IV for the Southern California Regionals. Devearl Ramsey scored 24 points and Cody Riley 17 for Sierra Canyon. Justin Bibbins scored 27 points and Stevie Thompson Jr. had 26 for Bishop Montgomery. Sierra Canyon outscored the Knights, 25-11, in the fourth quarter.

Four hikers hoisted by helicopter from Malibu Canyon about 3 a.m. Sunday were cited by state park rangers for "unsafe recreational activities," officials said. The group had crossed Malibu Creek when the water was low, but became stranded as rain deluged the drainage. They called authorities about 6:30 p.m. Saturday, and Los Angeles County sheriff's search-and-rescue teams deployed on the ground, slogging up the narrow canyon with little visibility, sliding mud and a creek that had become a roaring river.

Four hikers stranded by floodwaters were flown out of Malibu Canyon by helicopter early Sunday, authorities said. The hikers were cold and exhausted, but uninjured, said Sgt. Jeff Slutske of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. The hikers had crossed a section of the creek Saturday afternoon when the water was low, but by the time they returned, the stream was running too high and fast to cross. Sheriff's officials got a call from the hikers about 6:30 p.m. saying they were stranded.

Los Angeles County supervisors proclaimed a state of local emergency Tuesday in Bouquet Canyon, an unincorporated area in Santa Clarita Valley, paving the way for officials to take flood control measures without going through the usual permitting process. Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich, whose district includes Bouquet Canyon, said a series of fires and storm events have led to a buildup of sediment in Bouquet Canyon Creek. That reduces its carrying capacity, which results in water flooding Bouquet Canyon Road after heavy rains, Antonovich said.

For a decade, while traveling to perform in concerts, Moby was looking for a new place to call home. His longtime city of choice, New York, had become so gentrified and expensive that artists - his spiritual kin - were being driven out. "I was looking for a city that was warm in the winter, had access to nature and was primarily filled with weird artists," Moby says, seated in the guest house of his Beachwood Canyon estate. "Honestly, this is the only place that satisfied all the criteria.

Have you ever tried the beets and berries at Rustic Canyon? Because the dish is kind of mind-blowing when you think about it, a mess of roasted beets and purple quinoa in a rustic pottery bowl. There are herbs scattered over the top, and a few crisply roasted pistachios, and a few chunks of buttery, ripe Reed avocado, along with a seedy smear of slightly unripe mashed berries that seems to be there more for its fragrance and acidity than for any particular flavor. There may be a hint of dairy, and I seem to remember a version of this dish with creamed horseradish, but it could probably pass as one of those vegan feel-good bowls at a place like Real Food Daily or Café Gratitude - at least until you realize that you have powered your way to the bottom without half realizing it, and that the berries are doing unspeakably wonderful things to the avocado and that this may be the first bowl of quinoa you have eaten with pleasure since the last time you went to Peru.
