Becca Houser, a Crescenta Valley High School senior, has been spending her last year of high school as an exchange student in Ireland, living with her host family, the Timoneys, in Cork, Ireland. In a recent e-mail to the Valley Sun, Houser wrote of the great experiences she has had since arriving in Ireland. She has gotten involved in many activities, mostly through school, and has tried her hand at costume design, working at an animal shelter, being a reporter, and spreading the American obsession with everything that is "Star Wars."

They will be traveling to England and Ireland, representing the United States, California and Glendale Unified School District. But, the four GUSD student ambassadors with the People to People program aren't scared of the responsibility. They're excited. "I just want to see the country, and where they live," said Ashley Barsamian, an 11-year-old La Crescenta Elementary School sixth grader. Barsamian will be joined by Ashlyn Adelman, Eli McDonald and Lucy Garibian. "The whole point of this program is to see that Americans are really nice, not evil people that will put bombs into your country," said Adelman, 11, a student at Monte Vista Elementary School.

Things are getting out of hand in the question of lowering the flag when letter-writer Jeraldine Saunders attempts to equate the Armenian Genocide with events in Anglo-Irish history that took place before there was a United States -- in 1698 yet! According to Saunders the Irish suffered "the worst ferocious cruelty and repressive system imposed upon any other conquered people in the history of the world." I assume Saunders has made a study of the social policies of Attila the Hun, the excesses of the French Revolution, Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot and his killing fields etc. before she made such a sweeping assertion!

Alex Coolman GLENDALE -- There's something about Ireland, Michael Patrick Breen has found: The farther away from it he goes, the stronger its pull is on him. Breen, a Burbank resident, lives 6,000 miles away from the homeland he left in 1989, but he said the distance has only made his blood greener. Breen will perform along with his group, the Los Angeles Irish Set Dancers, at a St. Patrick's Day celebration on Saturday at the Hilton Glendale. The event is the seventh annual celebration of the Irish Center of Southern California and honors the Celtic Arts Center in Valley Village.

The thought of Ireland conjures images of green rolling hills, welcoming pubs, and beautiful haunting music that draws inspiration from the soul of the Irish people. Crescenta Valley residents got to sample that music by Noel Hill, a master of the art of the concertina. Hill not only shares his music by playing professionally but also has a music school in Conamara where he met Crescenta Valley residents Debbie and Chris Kollgaard. They were there to study with Hill and were so impressed by his music they invited him to La Crescenta.

Rafael Vindiola has never been to Ireland but you'd never guess that by seeing his newest series of paintings, "Images of Ireland," on display at La Canada Flintridge Library. "I started studying the Irish history and I'd get an idea from the writing then I'd do the research on the area," Vindiola said. The collection of 17 oil paintings and one watercolor vividly shows the lush, rolling landscapes of the Emerald Isle as only one who traversed the countryside might know.

It strikes you only a few minutes into “The Playboy of the Western World” how absolutely authentic the presentation feels. The set, the costumes, the characters, the language, all of them working in harmony to quickly transport the audience like a time machine to early 19th-century Ireland. After seeing a few shows at A Noise Within over the past year, I realize now that authenticity is their calling card. “Noises Off” plunged you into the ultra-realistic backstage drama of British theater.

Getting on board a gondola in Venice, setting sail on the Mediterranean Sea, or taking a trip down under to Australia might seem appealing as the winter months drag on even for those in sunny Southern California. The thought of traveling far from home to witness a portion of the world that’s only been heard of stirs many a soul with a bit of wanderlust.   For those of us on tightened budgets after the holidays, or a lack of vacation time readily available, Kiwanis Club of La Cañada’s Travelogue series offers a chance to enjoy the sights and sounds abroad without leaving the confines of La Cañada.

In case the bagpipe, Bronze Age horn and war cries weren't enough to leave an impression on the third- and fourth-graders at Verdugo Woodland Hills Elementary Schools Wednesday, the plaid kilts certainly did the trick. "It's hard to explain, but it was sort of weird," said 8-year-old Labiba Saleh said of not only the kilts, but the entire performance featuring old Irish and Scottish folk songs. As long as members of the Wicked Tinkers bagpipe band left an impression, "weird" was OK with them, drummer Keith Jones said.
