You can spend considerable time looking for a tale as dark and gritty as ?There Will Be Blood,? but in the end, you may keep returning to this gut-wrenching tale as the benchmark for those criteria. The character of Daniel Plainview, the central figure of the story, is richly portrayed by Daniel Day-Lewis, and he is as shivering, dark and cold as anyone, in the crime genre at least, that I have ever read about in the morning newspapers, and that is a span of time outreaching the half-century mark.

Myrna Morton-Brown has been donating her blood since she was in college. She even pre-donated blood for her own surgery in 1982. For the 67-year-old Glendale resident giving blood became such an important effort that she began organizing office blood drives six years ago for her office employees to give to the American Red Cross. "I was big on donating blood," Morton-Brown said. "It was fun going around and telling everybody to give a pint of their blood." After her retirement four years ago, Morton-Brown, 67, decided to volunteer her time with the Red Cross, the organization she had been familiar with ever since she started giving blood.

Thank you for the article on Becky Homan, which not only commends a young athlete for her commitment, but also introduces the general public to a condition that affects an estimated 5% to 10% of the general population, with women accounting for more than 75% of reported cases. According to the Harvard Health Letter, which I will restate in an edited form in this letter, some experts estimate that as many as 20% to 25% of young women have some form of Raynaud's syndrome.

Ryan Carter Elvis will be in the building today to help raise money for an effort that goes way beyond "You Ain't Nothin' But a Hound Dog." The Armenian Bone Marrow Donor Registry will host its annual dinner banquet at 8 p.m. at the Hilton Glendale, 100 W. Glenoaks Blvd. Elvis impersonator Harry Shahoian, known as the Armenian Elvis, and several dignitaries will be honored for their support of the 2-year-old program, which collects, types, matches and distributes blood donated by Armenians and is distributed to patients who need it. The registry's founder, Frieda Jordan, said the event is an effort to recognize people who have supported the program and to raise money for it. "Most committee members recognize that the biggest challenge is that we are running an international registry and do not have enough funding to support the typing," said Jordan, who volunteers her time for the program while working as a laboratory director in Glendora, where the donated blood is stored.

For centuries, scientists and philosophers researched why this ethereal center of love we call our heart, houses feelings and emotions as well as pumping blood through the entire cardiovascular system. After all, isn't it just another organ like the others in your body? The human heart is a double pump. It receives blood low in oxygen from the body tissues and sends it to the lungs for a quick fix. It finely adjusts the rate of contraction and blood pressure, adjusts the carbon dioxide and miraculously, sends it all back to the tissues of the body with all levels balanced according to your body's needs at that moment.

South Korea continues to crank out an amazing number of fine features, many of which are released in the U.S. only to get lost in the shuffle of indie and/or foreign films each year. Among these is Park Hoon-jung's gangster drama "New World," which opened on a few local screens in March. Park lays his cards on the table up front, opening with a brutal torture scene, in which mobsters are bashing up one of their own. It may be the bloodiest sequence in the film, so proceed with that in mind.

In “Dark Shadows,” Tim Burton exhumes the Dan Curtis gothic soap opera of the same name, which ran five days a week from 1966-1971. Not surprisingly, Burton's frequent collaborator Johnny Depp takes over the role of vampire Barnabas Collins. (Jonathan Frid - who played Barnabas in over a thousand episodes of the TV show and who died just a few weeks ago - can be spotted in the film as a guest entering a gala ball.) Curtis also made two features from the material: Burton's film cleaves fairly closely to the plot of 1970's “House of Dark Shadows,” the first of these.

The 4-0 decision capped a months-long debate during which district administrators, teachers, students and parents wrangled about whether the nonfiction novel was appropriate for teenage readers. School board member Mary Boger, who had spoken out against including the book on the list of approved reading material, abstained from the vote.
