Even though temperatures throughout most of the Southland on Thursday were warmer than earlier in the week, Los Angeles County's top health officer extended a cold weather alert for the San Fernando and Antelope valleys. The alert comes as forecasts for those areas show wind chill temperatures could be below freezing. The alert for the Antelope Valley lasts from Thursday through Sunday. In the San Fernando Valley, the alert covers Thursday through Saturday. "We also want to remind people not to use stoves, barbecues or ovens to heat their homes due to the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning," Jonathan E.

The two powerhouses in the City Section, Crenshaw and Narbonne, engaged in a defensive duel Friday night in the Division I championship game that featured one of the strangest occurrences -- three safeties on bad punt snaps. Two-time defending champion Narbonne couldn't overcome its special teams blunders and was beaten by the Cougars, 20-13, at East Los Angeles College. Crenshaw (10-4), in winning its fourth Division I title for Coach Robert Garrett, took the lead for good at 18-13 with 10:24 left on a one-yard touchdown run by Corey Walker.

 After watching missed field goals, missed conversion kids, roughing-the-kicker penalties and snaps going everywhere but into the punter's hands on Friday night in two City Section championship games, it's clear there's a special teams problem in the City Section. At least South Gate recognizes that fact and didn't even attempt a single conversion kick in a 34-32 loss to San Fernando. The Rams just went for two-point conversions. "I figured the odds were better," South Gate Coach Jose Casagran said.

One hundred years ago, water that had traveled from Central California began cascading into the thirsty San Fernando Valley. Today, this unexpected walk is one of the few L.A. hikes that features a close-up view of the great Los Angeles Aqueduct, near those historic cascades. 1. From the corner of Foothill and Balboa boulevards in Sylmar, walk uphill following the white rail fence that parallels the north side of the road. 2. Walk past the entrance to Legends at Cascades, and Nicklaus Drive, until you reach a narrow paved road stopped by a wide steel gate.
