Mike, who turned around the girls' basketball program in six years at Glendale, is waving his wand at Valencia, where the girls' team is 12-6 and in first place in the Foothill League with a 4-0 record. The Vikings defeated preseason favorite Burroughs last week and demonstrated come-from-behind ability with a 54-51 victory over Canyon on Tuesday.

Pete Rose, Mike Tyson, Oprah Winfrey--you're just chopped liver now. Stage Deli patrons, saying the three are among 10 famous people who no longer cut the mustard, have voted their sandwiches off the eatery's menu. "While the results were a dream come true for some, they were a nightmare for others," Stage co-owner Paul Zolenga said Tuesday. Comedians Shecky Greene and Nipsey Russell got the boot; the late Yankees Manager Billy Martin, once No. 1 in pinstripes and No.
