Dink O'Neal, Enjoy! GLENDALE -- Rodgers and Hammerstein's "The King And I" once again proves itself to be a well-crafted audience pleaser in its current incarnation at the Glendale Centre Theatre. The historical travels of a British widow, Anna Leonowens, whose experiences as a royal schoolteacher are described in the book "Anna and the King of Siam" were subsequently immortalized on stage and screen. Foremost, on the Glendale stage, it is delightful to hear such attention to detail and overall vocal expertise from the various leads.

Judy Seckler HOOVER HIGH SCHOOL -- Members of the public who waited until the last minute to buy tickets for the Stepping Stone Players production of "The Wizard of Oz" were turned away disappointed. Tickets for all four performances were sold out by Wednesday, said Lorna Barton, office support at Keppel Elementary School. "I cannot believe it," she said. "We still have people calling." There was enough interest to add on more performances, said Patty King, producer of the Stepping Stone Players.

Gary Moskowitz Sue Gonzalez, who is half African American and half Mexican American, attended her first Martin Luther King Jr. event this weekend. The Canyon Country resident has always considered herself "just an American," but lately has felt like exposing herself and her children to more African American culture to get in touch with her "other half." Gonzalez and her daughter, Siera Saenz, were among several hundred people who attended Forest Lawn's 75th birthday celebration for Martin Luther King Jr. on Sunday in the Hall of Liberty at Forest Lawn Hollywood Hills.

Huntington Beach playwright Joe Syiek has realized his dreams with the world premiere of his original musical, "The Golden Dream," on the stage of the Huntington Beach Playhouse. Syiek -- who wrote the book and lyrics for this elaborate and ambitious project, set in medieval times in a fictional kingdom -- takes his story beyond the point at which most such epics end, into the harsh reality that follows the "happily ever after" phase. Set to the often-stirring musical score of Erik Przytulski, "Golden Dream" reaches out to touch the hearts of its audience before adding layers of frustration that effectively flesh out the characters and add the Achilles heel of mortality.

KING King, an adorable 7-year-old cattle dog mix is looking for a new home. This handsome fellow is even cuter in person. He likes long walks, is very well-behaved outdoors and is a really fun dog to have around. If you can give him a home, please come meet him today! The regular dog adoption fee is $110, which includes medical care prior to adoption, spaying or neutering, vaccinations and a follow-up visit with a participating vet. King qualifies for our Senior for Senior program in which a person older than 60 can adopt a pet older than 5 free.

David Silva "Give me five!" I shouted to King, who barked happily and gave me "five" with his paw. My mother had just confirmed what had been looking like a real possibility for a week -- that everyone was going to be out of the house for New Year's Eve except for the dog and me. Michael was spending the night at his friend's house. My other siblings were going to Aunt Edie's party and my mother was going to the big New Year's bash our next-door neighbor Angie was throwing.

Applauding 'Retail Support' I applaud your recent editorial, "Let's Get Some Retail Support" (Jan. 5). Although it has been a while since I have had to canvas our local merchants asking for donations to worthwhile community organizations, it appears that not much has changed. I hope this helps our merchants become more involved in our community.   Joe Kroening Glendale Shocked and Appalled I was reading the newspaper last week in the "Around Town" section regarding what Martin Luther King Jr. day means to you, and I was incredibly shocked at one of the young ladies responses that, "Since there is not much diversity here, it is just another day to sleep in."

After seeing “A Brief History of Penguins and Promiscuity” at the Grove Theater Center in Burbank, my husband could not stop talking about it. But don’t get your hopes up — it was for all the wrong reasons. I, on the other hand, found a few saving graces in this new comedy by former lawyer James McLindon. All the action (and I do mean action in the biblical sense) takes place one spring day in a living room in Vermont. Albert, who is married to the lovely Julia and apparently impotent, has invited his old friend King for the weekend.

With the present attempt by certain people to have the City Council dictate market prices and conditions, it might be a good idea to look at ourselves and our market system. In England, back in the mists of the middle ages in 1215, King John was forced to sign the Magna Carta, agreeing to adhere to past practices and customs of the people. This long document of 60 clauses permitted the barons to use force if the king reneged. It has been reaffirmed by successive British Parliaments, was brought here by colonists and incorporated into our state constitutions.
