Last Friday, Sept. 29, Lincoln Elementary School held "The Second Annual Lincoln Camp Out and Egg Drop." This annual celebration consists of students, their families and faculty having a barbecue and camping out overnight on the blacktop of their school playground. This was the first year Bill Card has attended the event as the new Lincoln principal. "[This event is] a great get together for staff to get closer with the families," said Card. "How many events do you get to spend overnight time together?"

Children dressed in their Sunday best romped around the courtyard of St. Mark's Episcopal Church looking for Easter eggs to put in their baskets. The egg hunters collected plastic Easter eggs filled with candy and stickers. Wearing a pastel floral dress, Maya Calvo, 6, ran from one end of the grass to the next looking for eggs. She piled one egg on top another until there was no more room left in her basket. Her mother, Lara, saw her daughter's egg collection and called out to her. "That's way too many, Maya," Calvo said.

From far away, it seemed that a tiny village had taken refuge inside of Lincoln Elementary School Friday, setting up tents and having dinner in an oasis amid the surrounding residential community. But actually the commotion was the school's second-annual Family Camp and Egg Drop — an event where families and staff alike came together for a night of fun and camping. Nearly 300 Lincoln students, parents and teachers got together under the shroud of darkness to celebrate.

Ryan Carter Uncle Eddie and the kids are doing pretty well these days, without dairy and honey but with "pure love." Otherwise known as the Jacobs family, Glendale resident Edward Jacobs, his wife Rhoda and their grown children work from their modest baking factory on the western fringe of Glendale to create what they hope will be a vegetarian delight that appeals to vegans and carnivores alike. In 20 years, a failed cookie store in Westwood and his son Robbie's commitment to eating no animal products evolved into "Uncle Eddies Vegan Cookies."

We agree with the op-ed written by Garry E. Ackerman in the News-Press on Sunday titled “Float association has had enough.” This hard working, loyal and dedicated group has had nothing but verbal abuse and smear tactics plumbed against it for the past six months. For what? Well, its members had the audacity to select an animal that looked like Dumbo the elephant with a happy smile. This long-standing volunteer group has devoted time, energy and money to Glendale's Rose Parade float.

More than a dozen children gathered Sunday around the Rev. Anne Cohen at First Congregational Church-United Church of Christ for a quick lesson about the Easter egg. As Christians who believe Jesus Christ emerged from a tomb resurrected three days after being crucified, the egg too symbolizes the emergence of new life. It was a story of particular significance at a time when households throughout the region grapple with the worst recession in decades. In what is typically the most jubilant Christian holiday, congregants across the city Sunday came away with messages of hope that they would emerge from the financial hardships stronger and better.
