In its season’s first family concert presentation — French composer Camille Saint-Saëns’ celebrated “Carnival of the Animals” at the Alex Theatre in Glendale — the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra proved that not only can music soothe the savage beast, it can engage a youngster’s enthusiasm so completely, you wonder why public schools leave it off the curriculum menu in the first place. Part of the orchestra’s regular season, three family concerts are presented each year in an effort, spokeswoman Nicolette Atkins said, to “make music as accessible as possible to children.

Last Saturday a carnival was held at Crescenta Valley High School. Although there were many games of chance, great music and entertainment and delicious food, the foundation of the event was far from fun. The carnival was to bring attention to the plight of children in Uganda as well as to raise funds to assist them. In late March, CVHS students viewed a documentary titled "Invisible Children." As the film began, three teenagers set off on a trip to Africa not knowing what to expect.

Paul Clinton GLENDALE -- It wasn't all child's play Saturday at the United Community Church's Kids Rally Day. Organizers of the children's carnival worked in nonsectarian lessons about character, ethics and safety, United Ministry Director Lonnie Brown said. To educate children, the church asked California Highway Patrol officers to give safety tips on how to avoid troubles with strangers. To provide some basic information for their files, CHP officers fingerprinted children.

The music of French composer Charles Camille Saint Saens? Carnival of the Animals was brought to ?puppet life? last week for Mountain Avenue Elementary School kindergarten students. Members of Jim Gamble Puppet Productions performed the musical tale incorporating rod puppets and marionettes for the students who delighted in the fantasy of a young boy who writes a magical musical for an imaginary carnival. The boy envisions his piano teacher, Mrs. Zucchini, as a dancing frog and even brings to life a tinker toy creation to music: The Tinkertoyasaurus.

The annual carnival at Dunsmore Elementary came a little late this year, but scores of students and their parents showed up to the county fair-themed event Friday after school. About 25 booths, filled with food and games, were set up on the school playground and more than 300 people were swarming about even as volunteers were shutting them down. Some of the booths won awards from the school's PTA, which set up the event. The Pie-eating Contest booth — created by a fifth-grade class — was deemed "Best Theme."

There are painted warriors and hitmen, tattooed tough guys and brawling body builders. Some are fat, some are skinny, some are chiseled and even more are somewhere in between. Super heroes and villains, dastardly heels and bravado-brimming babyfaces, they are comedians and clowns, aerial acrobats and grounded grapplers. It is a band of brief-clad brothers striving to please an audience, follow a passion and earn a living. From curtain jerkers and jobbers to champions and main eventers, they make up a cavalcade of characters not often seen at your everyday job, though most of them hold one down.

As I type this, the clock is slowly ticking toward the first Tournament of Roses Parade of the new decade. Around this time, 100 years ago, the parade had no theme (and wouldn?t have one until 1918, with the theme of ?Patriotism?). The grand marshals of the 1910 parade were Dr. Francis F. Rowland and professor Charles F. Holder, both founders of the Tournament of Roses Parade. Rowland is the only person with the distinction of having been grand marshal seven times, according to the Tournament of Roses organization.

The Dec. 7 article “A carnival atmosphere” indeed gave a good description of the wonderful spirit that all enjoyed. What most who were there didn’t see or know is that none of this would have happened without the great work of the president of the Adams Square Merchants Assn., John Cianfrini, and his wife, Carol. The two of them did all of the preliminary work, such as getting the permits, arranging for the visiting musicians, face painter, rides, gift bags for the children and, of course, Santa.

About 4,500 people honored America’s birthday in style Saturday at the Crescenta Valley Fireworks celebration. Visitors began entering the gates at 4 p.m. to secure prime spots to watch the fireworks, and while they waited they had several food booths and carnival rides to choose from at La Crescenta Elementary School. The Ward and Terrazas families beat the heat by pitching a tent in the corner of the campus and sat back waiting for more friends to stop by. “I had seen these fireworks a long time ago when they had them at Crescenta Valley High School,” Nancy Ward said.
