Sick of Obamacare overload? Welcome, then, to Heidi Duckler Dance Theatre's “The Groundskeepers,” where healthcare comes to beautifully moody, elegiac life. Running through Saturday, this new, seven-scene, two-hour work written by George Moreno and mounted by site-specific queen Duckler, who founded her troupe in 1985, animates Boyle Heights' shuttered Linda Vista Hospital. Built in 1904 for railroad workers, Charles Whittlesey's massive structure closed in 1991 and will soon be converted into affordable housing.

Charisma. Intelligence. Athleticism. Toughness. Those are just a few of the qualities exhibited by junior quarterback Travis Waller of Anaheim Servite. If a coach needs a teenager to lead on and off the field, Waller is the ideal candidate. With a 3.8 grade-point average, off-the-chart physical skills and personal experiences that keep him inspired and focused, the 6-foot-3 Waller shows every sign of understanding what it takes to succeed. Moved from receiver to quarterback in the fifth game of last season, Waller has found his calling.

Add the name Maurice Davison of Anaheim Servite as a defensive back to watch. The junior has been taking on and more than holding his own against some very good receivers during the nonleague season, such as John "JuJu" Smith of Long Beach Poly and Dallis Todd of La Mirada. He's not only staying with the receivers but he's making tackles, showing good speed and toughness. He gets this week off, but then next week, he faces Concord De La Salle in a game on Saturday, Oct. 5 at Santa Ana Stadium.

What a month of September it was for Anaheim Servite. Victories over Long Beach Poly, La Mirada and Edison on Thursday night, 31-14, means the Friars are on the move. Tate Beachley rushed for 108 yards and one touchdown and Nick Lopiccola gained 76 yards and scored two touchdowns to help the Friars improve to 3-1. They're off next week before a showdown game on Oct. 5 against Concord De La Salle at Santa Ana Stadium. Quarterback Travis Waller passed for 87 yards and had 27 yards rushing, including a touchdown.

When the opposing coach compares you to UCLA quarterback Brett Hundley and San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, it's time to take a bow. Junior quarterback Travis Waller of Anaheim Servite earned praise from Huntington Beach Edison Coach Dave White with his ability to make plays Thursday night during Servite's 31-14 victory at Orange Coast College. "He's Hundley and Kaepernick," White said. Waller passed for 87 yards and ran for 27 yards and one touchdown, hardly statistics to shout about.

An apparent booze-fueled dispute over loud music between two groups at a Chino campground over the weekend escalated to the point where men from both sides drew guns and opened fire. No one was hurt, but the two alleged gunmen have plenty to explain. It turns out that the rival gun-toting campers were both Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies. Authorities suspect the off-duty cops learned they were colleagues only after their campground showdown. Chino police officers were called to Prado Regional Park early Sunday morning.
