They looked for suspects, clues and other details they read from the book to piece together the mystery.

Entering the Glendale Centre Theatre feels like a cozy step back in time. Visitors are greeted by memorabilia from the theater's 65-year history, furnishings from the past and a casual familial warmth later underscored by Executive Producer Tim Dietlein's pre-show banter with the audience. The family ambience of this 430-seat theater-in-the-round, with its cheery red upholstered seats and warm wood paneling, isn't anything new. Dietlein's grandparents founded the theater in 1947 and Dietlein, who runs the operation with his wife Brenda, grew up in it. It isn't surprising, then, that comfortable, familiar entertainment is a specialty of the house.

Phil Witte is the copy editor of the News-Press and Burbank Leader. The end of summer marks not only the time when kids must make the dreary return to school, but also the wonderful time when movies based on explosions leave the theaters to be replaced by movies that require thinking. Francois Ozon's "Swimming Pool" is a heady choice to begin the serious movie season, as viewers will need all of their mental faculties to decipher this gem of a mystery.

Frank Ramos has a mystery: a box of postcards from all around the world with one thing in common. “They were sent to the Potter family in Glendale,” he said. They were passed down to Ramos from his mother’s aunt, Naomi Benedetti, several years ago. “She lived all around the world; her father was a diplomat with the Vatican. Most of the postcards are dated from 1902 to 11 and were addressed to either Herbert or Ray Potter at a succession of addresses on Verdugo Road, including 212, 220, 242 and 244. Later, a few were sent to the Potters on Locust Street in Pasadena, then, still later, to Glendora.
