"Butter" - a frequently funny comedy from director Jim Field Smith ("Episodes") and first-time screenwriter Jason Micallef - is essentially a sports film with a layer of cultural (and, by the end, political) satire. In the tradition of that genre, it pits the sweet, utterly lovable underdog against the smug, utterly loathable alpha dog - only this time, the competition is sculpture; the medium, butter. In the film's world, you can forget about the early presidential caucuses: Here the most important event in Iowa is the butter sculpture competition at the annual state fair.

Dunsmore Elementary School fourth-graders took a trip back to California pioneer days on April 11 as they churned butter, washed clothes by hand and wrote letters with ink and quill. An area of Dunsmore Park was turned into various pioneer stations where students could learn about the bygone days. Dunsmore parents manned the stations and helped with the organization. ?This is just cream and salt,? said mom Glenda Webster as she handed the kids jars to churn butter in. ?Just keep shaking the jar. What you are doing is hitting the fat molecules against each other as you go back and forth.

Valley View Elementary School fifth-grader Eric Yoon, 10, poured some whipping cream into a small jar, screwed the lid on tight and shook it as hard as he could for about 15 minutes. He was making butter the old-fashioned way Friday as part of the school's third annual Colonial Day. As he and his classmates were shaking the jars, they recited, "Come butter, come; Johnny's at the gate; waiting for a butter cake; Come butter come." When Eric opened the lid and peered inside, a creamy yellow ball floated in a milky gel. He stirred in a pinch of salt, spread it on a piece of whole-wheat bread and took a generous bite.

Janine Marnien Shaking a few ounces of heavy whipping cream in small plastic containers might not have been exactly how Pilgrims churned butter, but it was enough to give some students at Monte Vista Elementary School an idea of what life was like in Colonial days. Dressed in costumes reflective of the era, fifth-graders spent most of the day Friday rotating classrooms and participating in different Colonial activities to coincide with their American history studies.

Fifth-grader Anna Sanvictores shook a small jar of whipping cream furiously, and said churning butter was no fun at all. “I used to wash dishes at home, and I’d rather wash dishes,” she said. “It’s easier, and this could take hours.” The butter-churning station was part of Colonial Day at Keppel Elementary School on Friday, when students got to live, play and eat like America’s Founding Fathers and early settlers. “They know kids their age used to make butter as a chore,” said Terri Glassen, a parent and one of the day’s organizers.

Mountain Avenue Elementary School fifth graders whittled soap, churned butter and danced like they had never danced before. ?You can touch a girl?s hand. It won?t kill you,? coaxed teacher Ron Gunnoe. The kids were part of Colonial Days at the school and some weren?t too happy to find out boys and girls held hands to dance during those pre-Revolutionary days. This was the second year the school had the program, which it had adopted from a Valley View Elementary model.

GLENDALE - A 63-year-old Glendale man was in stable condition Monday after he apparently attempted surgery on himself with a six-inch butter knife in an attempt to remove a protruding hernia from his stomach, police said. The man, whose name wasn't released, was taken just after 7:32 p.m. Sunday to Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center, where he was treated for his injury, according to Glendale police. When police arrived at the man's home on the 1000 block of Columbus Avenue, they saw the naked man lying outside on a lounge chair with what appeared to be the handle of a knife protruding from his stomach, Police Sgt. Tom Lorenz said.

In this kitchen-turned-classroom, the teacher’s head is always on a swivel. “You don’t need smoked paprika, you need regular,” advanced food preparation instructor Andrew Feldman said calmly, chiming in just as a Glendale Community College student approached him with the wrong spice jar. “Use a mix of red and green [peppers],” Feldman said to another student. With knives hitting cutting boards and pans clanking on stoves, students in white chef’s jackets moved methodically through the kitchen, preparing this week’s Argentine menu, which features empanadas de picadillo, grilled flank steak marinated in chimichurri sauce and crepes with dulce de leche.

GLENDALE — Glendale-based pancake purveyor IHOP Corp. may not be known for meddling in politics, but upon realizing that Super Tuesday would coincide with National Pancake Day next year, the company launched a lobbying campaign to protect its holiday special interest. The company sent letters on Dec. 5 to governors of the 15 states planning to host their presidential primaries on Feb. 5, urging them to change the primary date so voters wouldn’t be torn between voting and gobbling free pancakes, IHOP spokesman Patrik Lenow said.
