If Chatsworth High Coach Tom Meusborn and Granada Hills Kennedy Coach Manny Alvarado had each shown up to Wednesday's baseball game at USC wearing the Los Angeles City Section championship rings they'd won over the last 20 years, they would have needed a security guard to escort them home. Meusborn's teams have delivered eight City titles. Alvarado's teams have brought home five. So understand the tradition of excellence players are expected to live up to when they put on the brown Golden Cougars jersey or the orange Chatsworth jersey.

Almost every entrée and side order at El Bolivar in Chatsworth comes with a humble arepa , one of those innocuous little South American white corncakes. They're smaller than the palm of a child's hand. But take a bite, quickly: They're an utterly extraordinary nibble, a meltingly tender fluff of cornmeal and cheese, barely held together by the thinnest skein of crispy outsides. They're like the softest, tenderest, velvetiest grits you've ever had, only even softer than that. Marisol Lara and her mother, Myriam Lara, own El Bolivar and cook Colombian food, mostly according to family recipes passed down through Myriam.

Now that a seemingly never-ending high school basketball season is over, the next season can begin. That would be travel ball. And let the transfer season begin too. If you think one-and-done is popular in college, then get ready for one-and-done in high school basketball. Those are the players who spend one year at a high school, then move on to the next best deal. The CIF doesn't seem to mind. Its approach is, we'll send you to the Open Division to compete against the other schools who want to win badly.

This rocky landmark in Chatsworth is a worldwide draw for climbing enthusiasts. But it's also a great place to take a walk while watching the climbers practice their art on small rocks at the base and sheer cliffs near the peak. Begin a counterclockwise tour of Stoney Point Park by entering the recreation area from Topanga Canyon Boulevard, near the steel gate just uphill from the horse stables. To your immediate left, you'll see climbers and climbing teachers working out on some of the lower-elevation rocks.

 Who would think that a team with a 4-7 football record could be considered dangerous? Well, Sylmar better not take 4-7 Chatsworth lightly on Friday night in a City Section Division II quarterfinal playoff game, because the Chancellors have knocked off University and Granada Hills in their last two games. Coach Andrew Kim has found a formula to success, but Sylmar is a formidable opponent with the combination of quarterback Clarence Williams and running back Marcus Gandy. Gandy, a sophomore, has had runs of 86, 72 and 67 yards since he became eligible at midseason.
