On a recent afternoon I went to my local megaplex to see "Knight and Day." One thing had drawn me to the theater. It wasn't Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz I came to see. I'm not big fan of the action genre, either. No, my attraction to the movie was purely personal, rooted in a childhood trauma from which I have yet to recover. Ever since I was a little girl, I've had an old-lady name. As far back as elementary school, I met people who said stuff like, "Hey, I have a great aunt named June!"

When 17-year-old Leo Oppenheimer was cast as Conrad Birdie in Revolution Dance Center’s summer production of “Bye Bye Birdie,” he looked to the King for inspiration. Conrad Birdie — the fictitious rocker who is one of the lead characters in “Bye Bye Birdie” — was based on Elvis Presley. In the play, Conrad’s publicity-hungry agent decides the rock star should kiss a lucky fan on “The Ed Sullivan Show” before shipping out to join the Army.

GLENDALE — Bye weeks are normally a rare commodity for high school football teams. Take for example, the local teams. Of the five area squads, only Flintridge Prep has the luxury of having one. Still, there are pros and cons to having it during the middle of the season. On one hand, the Rebels (1-3) can use it to help players heal from numerous bumps and bruises. On the flip side, Flintridge Prep would like to continue playing after picking up a 23-20 nonleague road victory against Malibu on Oct. 2. The way third-year Flintridge Prep Coach Perry Skaggs sees it, there might be more positives having the week off in getting ready to kick off Prep League competition Friday against host Rio Hondo Prep.

Beth Colcord Do you know where your teenage daughter is? Chances are she's in line to see singing sensation Conrad Birdie in the Glendale Centre Theatre's musical production of "Bye Bye Birdie." Leather-clad, hip-swinging Conrad, played suavely by Tony Mansour, has been drafted into the Army, much to the chagrin of his agent, Albert Peterson. Albert needs the revenue from Conrad's performances to pay off his debts, so he and his secretary, Rosie, plot to have Conrad give a farewell kiss to Kim MacAfee of Sweet Apple, Ohio, live on "The Ed Sullivan Show."

NORTHWEST GLENDALE - It took the Glendale Community College football team three attempts just to get the opening kickoff to stay in bounds - an ominous start to a first half that ended on an even more sour note with a Vaqueros fumble returned more than half the field for a touchdown with zeros on the clock. Not much of the action sandwiched between those two points went Glendale's way either, as the host Vaqueros took a three-touchdown deficit into halftime and never recovered in a 41-6 Pacific Conference American Division loss to West Los Angeles College on Saturday at Sartoris Field.

For the first half of the season the Glendale Community College football team's mantra has been improvement from week to week. There's certainly been progress, as the Vaqueros' two wins so far have already matched the team's win total of the previous two seasons combined, but it's on the heels of back-to-back losses that Glendale enters its bye week with a record of 2-3 and 0-2 in the Pacific Conference American Division. Still it's with a glass-half-full attitude that the Vaqueros are approaching the week in which they've had a chance to heal up while reflecting on the past five weeks and looking ahead to the home stretch of conference games, as even the team's losses have offered glimpses of things to build on. "We have felt that even though we had a two-game slide, we felt that those teams were the top two team in our conference," said Glendale Coach Rome, whose team has opened conference with losses to Antelope Valley and defending-champion Santa Monica by a combined 15 points.

With a week zero game on the slate, the beginning of the 2012 football season came early for the Hoover High football team. So did the Tornadoes' bye week, which saw the team sidelined for week one action. While Hoover may have had the past Friday night off, the Tornadoes didn't take the week off following their Aug. 24 season-opening 46-0 win over Blair by any means, using the time to run a full schedule of practices and study up for week two's matchup with South Pasadena on Friday.

As it emerges from its week seven bye, the Glendale Community College football team found plenty of ways to make good use of its downtime, from resting its overworked running backs to cutting down on turnovers and penalties on both sides of the ball. There is one aspect of the game that Vaqueros Coach John Rome and his staff were particularly fixated on, however, as Glendale (0-6, 0-2 in the Pacific Conference American Division) looks to come out of the bye strong and promptly nip a six-game losing streak in the bud. "We thought definitely there were some areas we needed to find improvement in and one was throwing the football, which we spent quite a bit of time doing," said Rome, whose team is coming off a 28-20 home conference loss to L.A. Pierce on Oct. 8. "We hope we got a little better.

"It is not flesh and blood, but the heart that makes us fathers and sons. " - Johann Schiller Though you would have a difficult time finding one, there is a little known album by Nat King Cole entitled "Goodnight, Little Leaguer. " If you ever catch a glimpse, my Dad's the Little Leaguer on the right with the thin smile and the red cap. He grew up to be the man who took me on my first fishing trip, the man I had my first catch with, the man who told me how proud he was after my first karate tournament, the man who taught me how to get in front of a groundball during Little League and the man who was one of my two biggest fans when I put on a pair of shoulder pads.

GLENDALE — With no game scheduled over the past weekend, the Glendale Community College football team is in the middle of a much-needed two week stretch to recharge, reassess and heal its wounds, both physical and psychological, from a difficult 0-6 start to the season. And, while the challenges and pitfalls have been numerous for the Vaqueros over the first six weeks of the season, sophomore quarterback Steven Batista's comments indicate the team won't be taking a defeatist attitude into the final four.

GLENDALE — With a chill in the air and a light mist falling, the members of the Flintridge Prep football team went back to the basics during a recent practice. The Rebels did so differently, knowing they weren't going to compete in a game over the weekend because of a bye in the middle of their schedule. Though first-year Coach Antonio Harrison and some of his players had mixed feelings concerning the built-in off week, they agree that the bye couldn't have come at a better time.
