La Cañada resident Barbara Potter recalls taking the “big white boat” to Catalina Island when she was a child. It was a great family memory, she said, adding she enjoyed seeing the “flying fish” jumping out of the water. Potter, 57, will be reliving that memory soon as the winner of a free drawing for attendees at last Saturday night’s Kiwanis Club of La Cañada Travelogue series film “Hollywood’s Magical Isle — Catalina.” Potter won a trip for her and one guest to spend a night on the island, as well as a van tour of the island for her and up to four guests.

Darleene Barrientos Paddling furiously with a double-sided oar only turned Christine Nguyen in circles Thursday, so the Flintridge Prep senior tossed it aside and propelled herself by hand. Paddling with her hands got her across the pool, but also splashed water into her fragile boat, dipping her into the water just as she approached the opposite end of the school's pool. The 17-year-old and her team were part of the school's third annual paper boat regatta, a senior physics project turned end-of-theyear tradition in which students use newspapers, a roll of masking tape, a Gatorade bottle of glue, a can of paint, two liters of lacquer and a lot of ingenuity to build a one-person boat to try and paddle across the school pool in. "It was so much fun," Christine said after her boat sank.

A 57-foot powerboat ran aground on the rocks at Crystal Cove State Park early Monday after the owner fell asleep while the craft was on autopilot, officials said. By 4 p.m. Monday, a salvage company had removed the boat from the rocks and towed it into Newport Harbor, said Sgt. David Ginther of the Orange County Sheriff's Harbor Patrol. The owner, Mark Anton of Laguna Beach, and a woman were aboard the boat, which left Catalina Island around midnight, bound for Newport Beach, Ginther said.

In 1989, Sam Engel was interviewed to be the city’s first Neighborhood Services administrator. Two hours after getting hired, he left his post at the city of Covina and rolled his sleeves up in 100-degree heat for a committee meeting at John Muir Elementary School. Nineteen years later, Engel hasn’t slowed down — on land, at least. Up until having to sell his boat a year and a half ago, Engel took breaks from his fast-paced career by sailing.   How long did you sail before selling your boat?

The sea lions are back in Newport Harbor, and they're not the only ones barking. Harbor residents say the sea lions are destroying property and peace and quiet. But the sea lions are protected mammals, which limits actions by the Harbor Patrol. The sea lions' barking is keeping residents awake at night. And over Labor Day weekend, a group of sea lions climbed aboard a boat and sunk it under their weight. Sharon Allen, who lives on Balboa Peninsula, said she can hardly stand the noise.

A two-vehicle traffic accident on the Ventura (134) Freeway in Glendale near Harvey Drive and the Glendale (2) Freeway on Thursday sent a 30-foot racing boat sailing -- off its trailer hitch and across two lanes. CHP and the Los Angeles Fire Department responded to a 2:29 p.m. call that a boat, named Sea Flash, had detached from a trailer being towed by a green Chevy Suburban, according to CHP public affairs officer Vince Ramirez. Far left lanes were blocked for more than 30 minutes, Ramirez said.

Ahoy. Last week in the Daily Pilot, there was a picture of a 57-foot yacht sitting on the rocks off Crystal Cove State Park. The story reported that the owner fell asleep while the boat was on autopilot from Avalon to Newport Harbor. The vessel caught my eye because, approximately a year earlier, I had delivered that boat from Ensenada, Mexico, to Newport Beach. I remember the boat because it was a new Carver that could get up on top of the water and cruise at a decent speed for that size of yacht.

Jerry Lane Early in 1950, a small fleet of amphibious ships was put together and sent to Japan to train Army occupation troops who had, reportedly, grown fat and lazy. It was to be a six-month cruise designed to train boat crews and Army units in landing procedures. There were fewer than 200 experienced boat crews left over from the huge amphib forces of World War II and the Navy had become a bit rusty, thinking this kind of operation had become obsolete with the birth of the A-bomb.

I am writing concerning the letters that lash out at and the letters that support Armenians. What seems to be suggested is that all Armenians are on the same boat. It is almost like saying all teenagers are potential Columbine re-creators. Although one rotten egg may spoil the others, people are not eggs. As individuals, there are a variety of personalities and preferences between those of Armenian heritage. The same goes for any other nationality.

Ivan Forbes was in the audience recently when Beth Gates Warren, author of “Artful Lives: Edward Weston, Margrethe Mather and the Bohemians of Los Angeles” spoke at the Glendale Central Library. Warren's book focuses on what she called Weston's 'lost years,' the years he worked in a small studio at Brand Boulevard and Tropico Avenue (now Los Feliz Road) and lived in Tropico with his wife (the former Flora Chandler). Weston kept daybooks for his entire career, she said, but later destroyed all those from his Tropico years.

Jeraldine Saunders believes she is an angel. Her life policies are to always be honest, always help people and never cheat people, she said. Author of the book “The Love Boat,” which later became a top-rated television series for about 10 years, Saunders drew inspiration from her time as a cruise director. She was the only female director in the world at the time, she said, working seven days a week, 11 months a year for 10 years. Coordinating all onboard activities provided her myriad story lines for her book, she said.
