As first games go, the Laguna Beach High football team couldn't face a tougher task. Rolling into town for a 7 p.m. kickoff at Guyer Field is Centennial of Compton, a team new to Laguna's schedule. What the Apaches bring is talented athletes, plenty of speed, good size and a potent rushing attack. "This team will be an extremely difficult test for us," Laguna coach Jimmy Nolan said. "They're a tough team." The past two years, Laguna opened the season against Palos Verdes.

Charles Unger The Three Stooges, that form of entertainment that seems to appeal to most men and few women, are back in the news. Early in May, their representatives won a major victory from the California Supreme Court in a decision I think is a poor one. This case involved artist Gary Saderup, who produced and sold drawings of the smiling faces of good old Larry, Moe and Curly. The case was about whether Mr. Saderup could use these smiling faces without the permission of the Stooges' families.

Do you agree with the current council's push for downtown housing and development? I think housing is one of the critical issues the city of Glendale faces right now and will continue to face for the next couple of years. It is important to see what type of development the council is pushing forward and to see whether or not this will benefit the city more than it will hurt it. We should take a look at the number of units, the size of units and the type of units.

Three new faces -- four, really, when you count neophyte Executive Director Barry McComb -- are giving The Alex Theatre a whole new look these days. Assuming that look is accompanied by a new attitude with regard to public information about the theater, those faces are welcome ones, indeed. The Alex is a civic institution, a 76-year-old landmark anchoring the retail, commercial and entertainment activity in downtown Glendale. It is a repository of history, thanks to its movie-palace origins, while simultaneously serving as a reminder of what today's community can do, thanks to its refurbishment in 1993.

Lee isn't a Jewish last name. That didn't stop Helie Lee, a Glendale resident who immigrated with her family to the San Fernando Valley from North Korea in the 1960s, from trying to be like her Jewish-American classmates, Lee told a crowd assembled at Clark Magnet High School Tuesday night. Lee spoke at the Tuesday night event, which was sponsored by the Glendale Unified School District Intercultural Office Project as part of a celebration of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month.

Over the past few days, thousands of area students put on cap and gown and, with smiles as bright as their prospects, graduated into the so-called "real world." No one can tell these fine young men and women the adversities they had to overcome to reach this milestone in their lives, though certainly, many will try. The rest of us can point to the road our seniors walked to get to where they are today. But only they, the members of the graduating class of 2000, truly know how long the road was, how high and wide the roadblocks, how painful and perilous the stones in their path.

"I have always considered philanthropy a duty of those who are able, especially when it comes to honoring our veterans," Gatto said in a statement.

Regardless of size, a good art show can transport an audience outside of its everyday reality and into another space of consciousness, however briefly. If a small-scale exhibition does this, the possibility of a meaningful emotional connection between a viewer and the artist increases exponentially. Intimacy has tremendous potential for transformative experience in a way that a blockbuster show (where people shuffle through like so much cattle) seldom does. That's what is happening at the moment in the Norton Simon's new "Face It: The Photographic Portrait.

In its first state tournament appearance, the St. Francis High basketball team defeated a CIF section champion. Another balanced scoring attack might put the Golden Knights in position to accomplish the feat again. The task might be considerably taller for 11th-seeded St. Francis, which will travel to meet third-seeded Rancho Santa Margarita in a CIF State Division III second-round game at 7 p.m. Saturday. The Golden Knights, who finished runner-up in the CIF Southern Section Division III-A championship game against Oak Park, opened the state tournament Wednesday with a 67-62 road win against sixth-seeded San Diego Kearny.

For the past three seasons, it seemed like you could pencil the Crescenta Valley High boys' swimming team in for a podium finish at the CIF Southern Section Division II finals before the season even started. Such was the level of consistency that came to be expected from a stacked lineup featuring bona fide stars Young Tae Seo and Harrison Thai on the front line and a deep supporting cast. Just about all of the group that helped the Falcons capture a CIF title in 2012, bookended by a third-place showing in 2011 and last year's runner-up finish, is now graduated, which makes Crescenta Valley much more of a question mark than it's been in years.

After finishing runner-up in the CIF Southern Section Division III-A championship game, the St. Francis High basketball team will now get its first taste of competition in the CIF State playoffs. It's something that's welcomed by the Golden Knights, perhaps eliminating some of the sting from a heart-breaking defeat against Oak Park in the Division III-A contest. “The players are excited and it will help get the bad taste out of their mouths after the loss to Oak Park,” said St. Francis co-Coach Ray O'Brien, whose 11th-seeded Golden Knights (19-12)

A trip to the CIF Southern Section Division III-A championship contest appeared to be anything but a slam dunk for the St. Francis High basketball team just a couple of weeks ago. After stumbling through the second half of Mission League, St. Francis earned the second seed in the division's playoff bracket before being taken to overtime by unseeded Yucca Valley in the first round. Since the opening-round scare, the Golden Knights appear to be the squad that excelled throughout December and the first part of January.
