Sidewalk Studio Theatre’s production of “The Crossing” exemplifies why “black box” theater can offer the best of live drama, starting with a funny, precise performance by author-actress Rachel Ogilvy. She is so nuanced, so pitch-perfect, you can believe the voices of all the different characters she plays while quietly discovering the inner integrity and suffocating sadness of Rose, our narrator. Add to it an Equity-waiver venue that is so intimate, you can see an actor’s pupils dilate in orchestration with the action’s intensity.

A group of 14 Glendale High School students have already been to college. Associated Student Body members took a 12-hour train ride up the scenic coast to attend a California Assn. of Student Councils leadership conference at Stanford University, then took a side junket to San Francisco just to take in all the sites. It was the first time student-body members took such a trip, advisor Mary Hazlett said. "The bonding and sharing they did on the train and at the conference gave them the communication and leadership skills to lead them through the challenges they'll face throughout the year," Hazlett said.

Tim Willert LA CRESCENTA -- Mike Leum never met a challenge he didn't like. The 38-year-old La Crescenta resident regularly competes in marathons, triathlons and adventure races, which combine repelling with kyacking, mountain biking, trail running and navigation. Oh, and Leum, a member of the Montrose Search and Rescue Team, has taken part in 250 rescue missions. "I tend toward somewhat extreme activities," he said Friday. On July 8, Leum is going to swim with the sharks.

As his plane went down over the Pacific Ocean on April 24, 1942, George Haney was praying he would live past his first assignment. The 93-year-old Glendale resident and World War II veteran was the copilot on a B-17 Flying Fortress en route to Hawaii when the first of four engines failed and started the aircraft’s fall from 10,000 feet. “We knew that we were losing engines,” said Haney, a retired Army major. “We knew we’d have to make an emergency landing.

Joyce Rudolph ANAHEIM -- Disney Imagineers have created an adventure out of everything that's great about California. When guests leave the new theme park, officials said, they'll not only have experienced unique and state-of-the-art rides and attractions, but also will know more about the history of the Golden State and its people. Thursday marked the opening of Disney's California Adventure, and employees of Glendale-based Walt Disney Imagineering were at the new park answering the media's questions about the project, which took more than five years to complete.

As if the sights and sounds of San Francisco weren?t enough to keep visitors completely enthralled, Mother Nature invites you to drive just a few minutes north of the city, across the Golden Gate Bridge and into a suburban area that seems like the other side of the planet from downtown. Of course that?s why people live in Marin County, where as much as half the land is open space and there are so many trails and vistas you might think you were in a national park. It?s expensive to live here, all right, but then how many places offer you a multi-cultural city of sophistication on one side of the bridge, and quiet trails and solitude on the other?

Burbank school officials said they were shocked and saddened to learn that former Supt. Kevin Jolly had fallen to his death from a 255-foot bridge on Friday in Northern California, where he had taken over a troubled school district just a few weeks prior. Jolly reportedly fell off the Confusion Hill Bridge on Friday, falling to his death to the Eel River below from a height of more than a 20-story building. Numerous calls made to Mendocino County sheriff's and coroner's officials went unreturned on Tuesday.

Dining with Duvall By Lynn Duvall Last Sunday, shortly before they left on the next leg of their journey, my house guests from New Zealand sat down at our dining room table. I presented my business card, opened my notebook and we launched into a proper interview. Two Kiwis, as New Zealanders refer to themselves, spent their first week in the United States with our family. I was curious to hear their first impressions of America. Kent Prior, 29, was born in Westport, population 5,000, on the South Island of New Zealand.
