The emotions and the action could get as hot as the weather as Taft and Birmingham, two longtime rivals, line up to begin West Valley League play this week.

Both teams are coming off a bye, and probably needed the break to solve some issues. Birmingham (3-2,0-0) began the season with three straight wins, but then sustained consecutive losses. Taft (2-3,0-0) struggled offensively in three straight losses to open the season, but the Toreadors appear to steady themselves with back-to-back-wins. A key to those wins was having no turnovers, after averaging nearly five turnovers a game in their first three contests.

The leading question at Birmingham is who will play quarterback. Coach Jim Rose benched starter Trae Smith a couple of weeks ago for disciplinary reasons, and has been playing Manny Castro instead.

At press time, Rose had not made up his mind who will start against Taft.

The Toreadors must try and sustain the momentum they took into the bye week, because they will face Granada Hills and El Camino Real after Birmingham, and could suddenly find themselves out of the league title race.

The kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m. at Birmingham High. Other games involving Valley area teams this week include:

One of the largest pediatric cardiovascular programs in the region. Studies have shown that high volumes are associated with high quality and better outcomes, because experience is a major factor in quality of care. Wort was traditionally prescribed in parts of Europe for depression (in addition to use as a general-purpose tea), and Chinese medicine developed elaborate lists of herbs and preparations. With the scientific revolution in Europe and the United States, the use of traditional herbal remedies fell out of favor with the mainstream medical establishment, although a few people continued to use and maintain knowledge of traditional European herblore. In the early 20th century, scientists began reassessing this rejection of traditional herbs in medicine. Vorzüge eines intakten und lebendigen Gemeinschaftslebens bewahren.

The reasons for this are practical: many individuals in these families have a large number of nevi, and complete removal of them all is not feasible, since new atypical nevi continue to develop. In addition, individuals with increased susceptibility to melanoma may have cancer arise de novo, without a precursor lesion such as a nevus. The disadvantages of screening include the limitations of available noninvasive testing methods and the risks associated with invasive screening procedures.
