Ihave to admit, I had never used jumper cables on a car battery until recently when I had to jump a friend's truck. It was a sunny, warm Friday afternoon. I was in my work clothes, heels and a skirt, reading the directions to get a crash course on how to use the red and black cables. "Which one does the red one go with?" I wondered out loud. My friend was holding one in each hand and looking at the truck's insides. "Red is positive, black is negative," said a voice too deep to be my friend's.

I admit that this latest work by director James Gray took some warming up to, but once I did, I began to feel the kindness of this story and sorry that I had resisted for as long as I did. ?Two Lovers? is certainly not the most conventional of love stories but that is the difference that lends to its charm. Leonard, played by Joaquin Phoenix, is a brooding, troubled, 30-ish man who is facing some problems getting his life together. Still living at home and working in his father?

Dear Friends, Etiquette is about principles and customs handed down through generations based on kindness and consideration toward others. I enjoy sharing these principles with you. The New Year of 2007 is quickly approaching. Some important words to remember are those of Ronald Reagan. When he said, "We are one nation under God. When we forget this, we are one nation gone under." I would like to share a prayer for 2007 and an adaptation of a poem by Helen Steiner Rice: God grant us that this year we will have a wider view so that we can see others' faults through the eyes of You. Teach us not to judge the adult nor the young with a hasty tongue.

Video of teenage gunmen roaming the halls of Columbine High School sparked compassion Wednesday from Wilson Middle School students, drawing a few tears from the young audience. “My friends are still crying,” Nazik Sldryan, 11, said after a moving presentation on kindness and compassion that was inspired by Rachel Scott, the first student killed during the shooting. The Wilson PTSA sponsored the event, which brought the Rachel Scott Challenge — the nation’s largest school assembly program — to the school for two assemblies, a training session on practicing kindness and an evening event for parents.

As a constant customer, I was shocked and saddened to find Al's Italian American Deli in Montrose closed ( “Al's Deli has served its last Italian sandwich,” Jan. 15 ). On any given day, I usually could be found strolling into Al's for my daily savory fix: a small chunk of salami. On what I considered to be truly lucky days, I was awarded a complimentary array of salami ends. I was in seventh heaven! To Greg and Rosa Tomassian, thanks so much for your kindness, thoughtfulness and generosity.

Two days ago, I wrote about a despicable act of vandalism perpetuated against the Republican Headquarters on Foothill Boulevard. In it, I challenged good Democrats who are law-abiding citizens to stand against those who would commit such acts and stand up for what is right. After sending the letter to many newspapers, I also e-mailed it to many friends and family. One of my Democrat friends, Robert Sainburg, responded to my challenge and sent me a check for $200 for the Republican Headquarters and the loss they suffered.

I find it easier to focus on meaningful things at this time of year. Easier also to center my attention away from the vast and the noisy and the troublesome and more on the quiet, the unobtrusive, the inconspicuous, the vital. Despite the world?s disorder and daily turmoil that grab headlines and clench fists, there are the beautiful subtleties ? the little things in life ? that keep us all going. I like to think of that night so many years ago when a mighty empire ruled the world and a single baby came into existence.

The impact of a father cannot be underestimated. Simply said, it plays a significant role in the success of a child. While mothers provide the more nurturing and emotional outlets for a son or daughter, it is the father who builds the child’s base. A father’s love — or lack of it — is a critical yet understudied factor in child development, according to the 2002 research of Ronald Rohner, director of the Center for the Study of Parental Acceptance and Rejection in the School of Family Studies at the University of Connecticut, and his colleague Robert Veneziano, an assistant professor of social work at Western Connecticut State University.

I would like to send my condolences to the family of Mr. Richard "Moe" Montanez. I had the fortunate pleasure of knowing this man from my youth playing baseball at Pacific Park [for Broadway Motors, 1978-79). In 1980, his son Ray was my teammate when we traveled to Utah and New York for the 13-year-old World Series. I will never forget the kindness and compassion Moe showed me as my parents couldn't travel with us. Moe became a permanent fixture at Pacific Park as a manager and league president of the Vaquero League.

In the curious case of City Council candidate Zareh Sinanyan, it might prove helpful to take a step back and evaluate the public record - what's been said, and, perhaps more importantly, what hasn't. The hoopla, of course, centers on disparaging, ethnically charged and vulgar comments posted on sites like Facebook and YouTube under Sinanyan's name as far back as five years ago. The comments have cost Sinanyan some very high profile endorsements, including those of Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank)

Glendale Unified's Teacher of the Year doesn't really understand why she won the honor. “I don't see myself as being an outstanding teacher,” said Olivia Macaulay, who learned of the honor earlier this month. During a recent day in her Glendale High classroom, Macaulay's U.S. history students dressed up as Founding Fathers and hashed out how much power the U.S. government should have and where the capital should be located. On other days, they've represented various states trying to pass legislation.

Carmine Sardo leads a double life much akin to that of a comic book superhero. By day, he's a mild-mannered merchant, tending to his La Crescenta auto and boat upholstery business. After dark, Sardo is transmogrified into a musical crusader, a player of audacious proficiency whose blend of California country music sensibility and hot, groove-oozing blues combine into a style that's as singular as it is arresting. The 68-year-old guitarist, who has been a resident of the Tujunga-Sunland-La Crescenta delta for over five decades, serves as anchor for the equally capable local combo the Shuffle Brothers and whenever the quartet sets up, whether it's Sundays at Glendale's Big Fish or Wednesdays at North Hollywoods' Michael's Pub, it's guaranteed they'll supply a drastically satisfying earful.

In defrauding at least 50 politicians and others of more than $7 million, campaign treasurer Kinde Durkee spun a tangled financial web to cover her business payroll and mortgage payments and try to stay ahead of investigators, while also paying for Disneyland tickets and other amenities, federal prosecutors allege. Durkee is scheduled to appear in federal court this week to face five counts of mail fraud. Court papers filed Tuesday, which are typically submitted when a plea bargain is in the works, provide the most extensive details yet of an alleged scheme to take money from the campaigns of U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein, state Sen. Lou Correa (D-Santa Ana)

Attorneys for Burbank-based campaign treasurer Kinde Durkee and the federal government have agreed to a one-month delay for a court hearing that had been set for Thursday on allegations that she embezzled political funds from a state lawmaker. If a judge signs off on the delay, as expected, the hearing will be held Feb. 28 in federal court in Sacramento. Durkee was arrested Sept. 2 and charged with mail fraud in a case that alleges she misused $677,000 in 2010 from the campaign account of Assemblyman Jose Solorio (D-Santa Ana)

Every time I hear someone say, “If I were you” or “I wish I were going,” it always surprises me. When I hear people say things like, “It's crucial you be there,” I'm even more surprised. Chances are, if you asked these people why they used “were” instead of “was” or “be” instead of “are,” many couldn't tell you. If you asked them to explain the subjunctive mood, most couldn't tell you that, either. Yet without even fully understanding the subjunctive, people use it correctly all the time.

Reporting from Sacramento - Los Angeles County prosecutors said Thursday they would not pursue misdemeanor charges against campaign treasurer Kinde Durkee for allegedly claiming to be an accountant when she did not have a license. Durkee already has been charged in federal court with mail fraud in connection with the alleged embezzlement of a client's money, the Los Angeles County district attorney's office noted in a statement. "In light of the significant prison time she faces in that case, misdemeanor charges are not warranted as the … violations are not likely to result in additional punishment or time in prison," the statement said.
