Glendale Assistance League The hats came out for the Glendale Assistance League's April 25 Mad Hatter Tea. Chairwoman Deb Ann Orfalea organized the historical League Clubhouse at 314 E. Harvard Street into an elegant, elaborate tea house. Her centerpiece looked like a tall, flowered hat but was actually tiny cupcakes arranged with flowers and bows. League members on the hospitality team were up late cooking up tiny delicate edibles or up early at the flower mart picking the best flowers to make their arrangements.

David Silva What has Mike Antonovich been drinking? Well, a lot of bottled water, judging by his remarks in a Sept. 6 news release on the issue of pollutants in Glendale's drinking supply. For reasons fathomable only to the county supervisor, Antonovich felt the need to inform the public -- at the public's expense -- that bottled water was superior to Glendale tap water. Uh, yeah. Next he'll be telling us carrot juice is healthier than moonshine.

Dink O'Neal GLENDALE --To opening strains of Irving Berlin's "Annie Get Your Gun," a lovely lighting montage emphasizes scenic painter Chris Black's wall-mounted handiwork. The promise of great things hangs in the air. For the most part, Glendale Centre Theatre's production delivers, but much like Annie's and Frank's various shooting matches, this show is a series of hits and misses. As an energetic Annie Oakley, Sarah Vanek has flawless comic timing and a clear, crisp voice.

Worthy candidates for Best Picture have been hard to come by in 2005, but the front-runner for Worst Picture is already in a theater near you. The attempted comedy in "The Dukes of Hazzard" is so bad it makes the films of the Three Stooges seem like masterpieces. The story is so stupid, you might lose 10 points off your IQ just by watching the first hour. The acting will make you cringe. Burt Reynolds plays a cartoon version of himself as the evil Boss Hogg of Hazzard County.

'My Turn' right on about pain Flo Martin's article on the Costa Mesa City Council denying the dispensaries for medical marijuana hit home with me ("My Turn," Friday). I have suffered chronic pain for the last five years. Pain, especially chronic pain, is not negotiable; it is a fact. The Costa Mesa City Council's misinformed decision to deny medical marijuana dispensaries within the city limits would be laughable if it were not so sad. I have been working in the drug and alcohol recovery business for the past 23 years.

Marlene Hitt A barely remembered calypso song from the '60s says: "Gossip, gossip, evil 'ting; much unhappiness it bring! If you can't say somthin' nice, don't talk a'tall is my advice!" Are all of the old stories true? Could it be true that those God-fearing, shovel-carrying rugged individualist farmers of Sunland-Tujunga could have done any evil 'ting? Is there a body buried under Sterling's (Mario's) parking lot? Did a murder really take place in a cobblestone house on Whitegate?

Prohibition in the United States began in January 1920, when the 18th Amendment essentially banned the production, transport and sale of alcohol. A highly controversial issue, the 13-year-long ban saw the rise of organized crime and corruption and hundreds of thousands of speakeasies, establishments that sold alcohol illegally. It wasn't until 1933 that the ban was repealed by the 21st Amendment, bringing alcohol back to the masses. During the dry period in the United States, L.A.'s underground tunnels served as secret passageways to basement-based speakeasies, where illegal booze was abundant.
