Nearly 1,000 students at Wilson Middle School showed up for the school's first dance of the 2002-03 school year Wednesday. Students in sixth, seventh and eighth grades participated in the "welcome back" dance, most of them dressed in casual clothes. School Principal Richard Lucas said the first dance of the year is always a big event for students, even if they don't dance. "A lot of them don't get out there and dance, but they definitely like to come and hang out with each other," Lucas said.

Gretchen Hoffman The FBI has warned law enforcement officials of the possibility of some kind of terrorist attack on the Fourth of July, but Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport officials are keeping mum about whether enhanced security measures will be put into place. Glendale and Burbank Police will have extra officers on hand, but nothing in excess of normal July 4 staffing levels. The FBI statement was vague. It was essentially a warning that the political and cultural significance of the date warrants increased vigilance.

Jenna Bordelon PALMER PARK -- John Muir Elementary School student Enrique Malaguit, 11, picked up an old piece of gum with a eucalyptus leaf. "The gum almost laid down on my hand," he said. "It was gross." The cleanup was part of an Earth Day awareness event put on by the school. It was designed to give fifth- and sixth-grade students a sense of their immediate environment and why it's covered in trash. Earth Day will be celebrated throughout the world today.

Josh Kleinbaum In the past, when Craig Dunkin brought his family to the Montrose Harvest Market, he had to do it in small doses. "If you keep it in a small dose for the little kids, it works fine," Dunkin said. This week, Dunkin was able to stretch his dose out a little longer. At the Montrose Block Party, a larger version of the Harvest Market for the Fourth of July weekend, the Montrose Shopping Park Assn. debuted the Kids Zone, an area dedicated to giving kids something to do and making the weekly harvest more family oriented.

When it comes right down to it, the nose knows Cavalia boasts "over thirty horses." I'd rather drive through cesspooly odiferous La Canada Flintridge on the 210 Freeway with my windows down. KATE MORSTAD Montrose Wonderful on TV, should be even better in person I have seen the [Cavalia] performance on TV and they are wonderful. It will be quite an honor for Glendale to have them in the center of town. I will sure send for tickets.

For the local soccer fan, the World Cup tournament ? hosted in a nation half a world away ? can seem like a daunting, if not financially impossible, must-see event. But local travel agents say the steep price tags to South Africa of just a few months ago have dropped significantly, putting the world sporting event within reach of those die-hard fans who want to experience the field through more than just a flat screen. Travelers today can expect to pay around $1,650 for a round-trip flight from Los Angeles to Johannesburg, compared with $3,000 about three months ago, said Dave Herbert, managing director of Glendale-based African Travel.

GLENDALE — An event 62 years in the making for the Jewel City is steadily approaching. On Friday at the Glendale Civic Auditorium, Glendale Glory will be the first sanctioned night of boxing in the Jewel City in more than six decades. Behind an campaign spearheaded by Kahren Harutyunyan, whose Art of Boxing Promotions, in association with Bash Boxing, is promoting the event, the Glendale City Council’s ban on boxing was lifted earlier this year, granting a one-year trial period.
