Hitchcock, this ain't Gabrielle Reynolds is a prop buyer for Walt Disney Imagineering in Glendale and is married to fellow critic Patrick Reynolds. Foreshadowing and suspenseful music. Mysterious goings-on next door. Dark, unexplained looks. Clues, clues, clues! Unfortunately, the clues don't point to the story in "What Lies Beneath" as much as they do to the Hitchcock classics and other recent thrillers that are being ripped off. Alan Silvestri cheats his way through a thin reworking of Bernard Herrmann's "Psycho" score, and his music gives the heaviest cues as to when we are supposed to be scared in this manipulative melodrama.

Earthquake awareness month ends with a reminder of the devastation the shakers can cause by looking into the past to help understand the future. And, with the Sierra Madre Fault line running through the San Gabriel Mountains, Crescenta Valley would do well to become familiar with quakes and understand that one striking here could cause destruction of property, if not loss of lives. At 5:12 a.m. on April 18, 1906 San Francisco was destroyed by a 7.9 earthquake. In accounts of the quake people spoke of the ocean being pulled back, the sand shifting under their feet and buildings almost bending before crashing to the ground.

For all the sophisticated computer forensic evidence and what was described as a 3-foot-high stack of bank records, Glendale police detectives said that during their yearlong embezzlement investigation into John Drayman, it was discrepancies in the reporting of pony ride proceeds at the Montrose Harvest Market that solidified their suspicions. The revelations, contained in hundreds of pages of grand jury testimony unsealed on Friday, provided a glimpse into how the police investigation unfolded over time as detectives started looking into the former Glendale councilman's finances.

Careful hands sifted through clues at a middle-school library crime scene. In rotating teams of three or four, the eighth-grade science students at Wilson Middle School reached over yellow caution tape to handle evidence. "We now have suspects Anderson, Barry and Chambers," science teacher Robert Kiel said. Three students had robbed the library, leaving behind fingerprints, soil from their shoes, footprints, hair, shirt fibers and an incriminating note. It was up to the 29 would-be crime-scene investigators to solve the mystery of some stolen baseball cards, model cars and antique dolls worth more than $500.

Gretchen Hoffman In tracking down evidence linking a suspected killer to his or her crimes, often what the detectives are looking for can be as innocuous as a newspaper clipping or a family photograph. To their trained eyes, however, the simplest scrawl on a piece of notebook paper can be the key to an additional decade in jail. Anyone convicted of a violent felony is punished by an additional 10 years if investigators can prove he or she has associated with a street gang.

NASA's Curiosity rover has found evidence that Mars could have once held life, scientists said Tuesday. The one-ton rover drilled into a rock last month and collected a sample that contained essential ingredients for life on Earth, including hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, phosphorus and carbon, according to NASA. Scientists believe those same elements would have provided a habitable environment for life on the Red Planet billions of years ago. "We have found a habitable environment that is so benign and supportive of life, that if you would have been on the planet, you would have been able to drink [the water]

These days, everyone's a writer. And a reporter. And an editor. Thanks to the Internet, you can report any "fact" you want, be it a UFO sighting in your rumpus room or incontrovertible evidence that Donald Trump has a full head of hair. There are benefits to this democratization of reporting. We get more information from a greater diversity of perspectives. But this comes with a downside: There's a lot of bad information out there, and it's on us to sniff it out. Say what you will about the bad old days of near media monopolies.
