How do we live our lives? Do we go through the motions and allow ourselves to be blown to and fro by the circumstances we encounter? Or do we strive to call upon God for assistance when life gets tough? Honestly, I have been on both sides of this fence. Since accepting Jesus as an adult, I thankfully have been able to seek His face and call upon Him in many of my times of need. But truthfully, there have been times when life got so hectic and painful that I have been overcome by stress and just gone through the motions.

I have just finished reading two letters ("Ease up on immigrants" and "Diversity should be embraced") in the Community Forum mailbag, which angered me to the point I had to walk away for a while to simmer down. What has gone wrong in the United States during the past 50 years or so? It seems that this country has become a big psychiatrist's couch for all the world's problems. Instead of facing up to issues squarely, there are people who always look for excuses for crime and bad behavior, by holding hands, or placing flowers where someone has been senselessly murdered.

In the interest of complete disclosure, I will state that when the film "RV" opened, I had no desire to see it. However, a friend had recently described it as "hysterical," so I selected it when given a list of films to choose for reviewing. I won't say that it's excellent, or even anything closely resembling a classic comedy of cinematic importance, but keep it within its limited confines of cute and predictable family fare, and you won't leave the theater feeling cheated.

For no other reason than to create publicity, media people are always making movie lists. If someone ever comes up with the one titled "Movies That Didn't Need to Be Made," I would nominate "The Man." It's far from brilliant, but should not be dismissed as horrible. Perhaps the biggest problem is that you've seen it all before with alternate titles as "Beverly Hills Cop," "48 Hours" or "Lethal Weapon." It's the two guys with nothing in common who get thrown together against their wishes under trying circumstances and have to work as a team to take care of the bad guys and save the day. In this version, Derrick Vann (Samuel L. Jackson)

I?ve always been interested in issues that impact our foothill communities, and I have opposed development in our communities, especially when it will impact open and natural spaces. I have not seen much coverage lately about the proposed development of the Verdugo Hills Golf Course. I heard the environmental impact report is now open for community comment (?Report: Golf plan would harm area,? May 29.) I know this issue is very important to residents of the foothills. I would love to hear the responses and feelings of our residents.

Mirjam Swanson SOUTHEAST GLENDALE -- Cameras were snapping, video was rolling, and what a good thing that was. The members of the Glendale High baseball team -- particularly its 10 seniors -- are going to want to remember this one, a come-from-behind 8-6 win against Hoover in the regular-season finale. That includes, especially, the Nitros' iron man, Kevin Hickcox. Hickcox capped his four-year varsity career, in which he played every inning (about 700)
