An otherwise pleasant Saturday afternoon was interrupted by the barking of our Golden Retriever "Coco." He was freaking out over his discovery of a rattlesnake under the patio table. I know I'm needed when my daughter, Denise, and granddaughter, Nicole, are yelling, "Dad, there's a huge snake in the yard!" We had been warned of the possibility of more snake sightings this year. Well, this one was more than four feet long with girth to match (see photo.) After the decapitation we gave it a nice burial.

Bent over, holding a dust pan, sweeping my driveway, I was startled when a gentle small voice asked, "Can I show you something?" As I straightened up, I recognized my neighbor boy Georgie Vine. He was clutching a tiny wiggling thing that I fearedy I would have to inspect more closely. Luckily, Gretchen was nearby, weeding under the lemon tree. She walked over to meet Georgie's new pet albino corn snake. "What's his name?" Gretchen asked. "Slider," Georgie replied with pride.

Nobody told Cajun the crocodile he would be in a show on Honolulu Avenue Sunday afternoon, but when he made his entrance the crowd went wild. The fifth annual Kids 'n' Kritters Day at the Montrose Shopping Park featured two petting zoos. One with pythons, kinkajous and crocodiles and another with more provincial animals. Kimberly Wright, an animal handler for Wild Wonders Productions, held Cajun on her forearm and passed his tail around for children, young and old, to touch.

"Black Snake Moan" is a movie about the blues ? those blues of surviving life's many heartbreaks and the feral country blues found down South. But "Black Snake Moan" is also about how a wild, half-dressed, young Southern girl manages to get herself chained up to the radiator of Samuel L. Jackson's character. The film is set in an unnamed part of the Deep South. Those blues start to churn as the aging, God-fearing bluesman Lazarus (Jackson) learns his younger wife is leaving him for another man. Simultaneously, Rae (Christina Ricci)

A mini menagerie of exotic animals visited Cerritos Elementary Tuesday drawing gasps of wonder from the students.

Maurice Barnfather Everyone has an emotional hand grenade, primed and ready to throw, in "Everything Dies in Winter," which continues the Action/ Reaction Theater's inaugural season in Glendale. Each encounter in Dennis A. Pratt's compelling play, which from a pedestrian beginning spirals into a refreshingly different tale of a dysfunctional family with murder on its mind and in its heart, is shadowed by the past. An aging couple, haunted by the loss in Vietnam of a son they abused as a child, crumble into impotent fury in a power battle with a schizophrenic veteran from that same war, who in turn is forced to assume responsibility for killing the husband of his trashy, sensual girlfriend, desperately seeking simplistic Freudian solutions to her bruising, wasted life.

What was I thinking? All I remember is that it happened so fast; one minute I was wasn't ? the next minute I was. Here's my story. Four years ago, Kaitzer asked me to attend a meeting for her. She had another gig, so I attended the Girl Scout information meeting at La Cañada Elementary. I stuck out like a sore thumb. Just like Alice I fell into this vortex, which took me deeply into an altered state of awareness. You know the story of Alice, the little girl from Wonderland!

The Glendale News-Press article on Sept. 4 titled “Smart meters in the frame” was very informative. Jim Sepe holds the title of “chief technology officer” for Ceiva. I doubt that he is a guinea pig for the new project his employer is proposing, but is just using another snake oil sell about smart meters. Does anyone with a shred of common sense need another energy consuming gadget to advise them that when they lower temperatures or activate air conditioners, power use will either decline or rise in use?

SOUTHEAST GLENDALE ? In a 48-hour span, the Burbank High boys' water polo team made its case against the two Glendale-based programs. Scoring goals wasn't a problem for a depleted Burbank squad, which capped its week Thursday with a 14-12 Pacific League road victory against Glendale. That came on the heels of the Bulldogs' 18-14 league win Tuesday against Hoover. Burbank (5-1 in league) got seven goals from senior driver Greg Fields, including the match-winning goal with 2:14 remaining.

"Snakes on a Plane" is the most fun I've had at a movie all summer. That doesn't mean everyone will enjoy it, but my friends and I had a blast. Since the film is called "Snakes on a Plane," I'm not going to get into the specifics of the plot. Let's just say, there are snakes and a plane. Samuel L. Jackson stars as detective Nelville Flynn, who must escort a witness from Hawaii to Los Angeles to testify against an Asian gang boss. Halfway to L.A., the simple task goes out of control as a plane full of snakes starts attacking the passengers and crew.
