LA CAÑADA — Engineers at Jet Propulsion Laboratory in La Cañada Tuesday filled a ramp full of powdery earth and slowly rolled a test rover onto the geological cocktail as they tried to simulate the rover Spirit’s unfortunate circumstance on Mars. Since May 6, the golf cart-sized Spirit has been embedded in an area on the west side of what scientists have named “Home Plate” on Mars. The rover’s wheels can still rotate but slip in the soft soil, so engineers won’t move it until they work out an extraction plan on Earth.

Showing their school spirit (and love of doughnuts), Rosemont Middle School held their first spirit rally for the 2008-2009 school year on Oct. 3. Seventh and eighth graders competed against each other in several events, from simple ones like how many in each grade wore their Rosemont T-shirt to traditional tug of war. Then there was the bungie doughnut eating contest. This was a unique competition where an eighth grader was tethered back-to-back to a seventh grader with a giant bungie-type rope.

?The Spirit? is a colossal embarrassment for all involved, including the audience, who will feel like complete fools once they realize what they?ve actually paid money to see. Created in the 1940s by visionary writer/artist Will Eisner, ?The Spirit? has been adapted for the screen by another comics legend, Frank Miller. Too bad the movie is more about Miller and his retrograde obsessions and considerably less, if at all, about Eisner?s ?The Spirit.? Denny Colt (Gabriel Macht)

I came across the following portion of scripture two times in the past week ? in two different Bibles. It is about living our lives in the spirit, where we can find the most contentment and joy. I know that there are often reasons we have certain portions of Scripture cross our paths. It spoke to my heart and I pray it speaks to yours as you read today. ?.?.?. live by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature. For the sinful nature desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the sinful nature.

The good weather made the Montrose Christmas Tree Lighting Festival a great success. A snow-making machine helped make Honolulu Avenue feel like a winter wonderland. I saw little kids and bigger kids with gray hair throwing snowballs. One even hit one of the carolers, right in the middle of one of my favorite songs. Behind the scenes, Santa's elves, Steve Pierce and Linda McMenamin, were busy making sure all the equipment was being moved into place. They and the other merchants helped make sure the streets and sidewalks were clean before the first snowball hit the ground.

I am, as many of us are, following the John Drayman story. It will be interesting to see what the final outcome is. But I cannot fathom why we are referring to Drayman as “Mr. Montrose.” There has been one, and only one, man who has ever been endeared to our hearts as “Mr. Montrose,” and that was the late Frank Roberts. I am saddened to have Frank “Mr. Montrose” Roberts' name and spirit diminished by having that title used loosely for anyone else. Heather Dinger Glendale

Thoughts from Dr. Joe by Dr. Joe Puglia The past couple of weeks, I've been giving myself a doggone headache trying to intellectualize the phenomenology of "Christmas," and "Belie-ving." It ain't easy; especially when you have to think. Quoting one of my Brownie Scouts from troop 889, "What the heck!" Enough is enough; I'm going back to the basics. You know, Vince Lombardi - the fundamentals. So, when the world becomes a bit too esoteric, I fondly remember Mrs. Venola, (Mrs.

Moonlight Rollerway is memorializing a longtime patron who had a big pair of roller skates and an even bigger passion for the sport. David Snowden's size 14 custom Riedell skates, valued at more than $700, are on display at the rink's front counter, along with a photo of him as a remembrance of someone who paid a visit almost every week for more than 20 years. The 68-year-old died of a sudden heart attack at his Redondo Beach home on Feb. 10 “He liked coming to Moonlight. He felt like this was his home rink,” said business owner Dominic Cangelosi, who's known Snowden since the 1980s.

Six-year-old Camilla Lopez timidly walked along a table topped with dozens of dolls - soon one would be hers if she could just find the right one. She finally settled on a girly doll resembling a baby and gently placed it in a black plastic bag. The doll was just one of several toys that she and her two sisters received Saturday from deputies at the Crescenta Valley Sheriff's Station, where the holiday spirit was in full swing. “They are doing good for the kids,” said Camilla's father, Oscar Lopez of Tujunga.

GLENDALE - A layup from Glendale High junior Tyler Lousararian as time expired capped a wild back-and-forth contest for the Nitros boys' basketball team, which knocked off intracity rival Hoover, 63-61, in Glendale Community College Vaquero Classic action Saturday afternoon. “I think it's pretty evident that we're very similar teams in terms of athleticism,” Glendale Coach Steve Snodgrass said. “Hoover beat us for one half and we beat them for one half. Honestly, the only difference was that we made the last shot.” The Nitros, who were donning throwback Dynamiters jerseys, led, 59-58, when Hoover took possession with 27.7 seconds left in the game.

" Hernandez's coach, Gretchen Lohr Corrales, was gunned down November 2012 in downtown Los Angeles. Not only was she a mentor, she was also Hernandez's friend and running partner. They were the top female finishers in last May's race, which draws hundreds of runners from throughout Southern California. "I think she is going to be there in spirit," Hernandez said.

Maybe letter-writer Dean Briggs (“ Thoughts on reaching across the aisle ,” April 17) needs to reread the actual In Theory question about interfaith marriage that was asked to the panel. It was not whether we should have contact with or help our fellow human beings regardless of religious or spiritual convictions, but whether marriage can survive and grow when there is such a difference in thoughts and beliefs. I found his letter to be obnoxious and mean-spirited. I enjoy reading Sunday's In Theory section and always look forward to the Rev. Bryan Griem's answers because, unlike most of the panel, he doesn't try to be politically correct or play to the majority of public opinion.

It's that time of year again, and no, we're not talking about Halloween. A more than 100-foot-tall white fir Christmas tree rolled into the Americana at Brand early Tuesday morning -- crane at the ready to hoist it into place a day before even Halloween has had its moment on the calendar. The tree, which hails from Mt. Shasta, will be decorated in the coming weeks with 10,000 lights and 15,000 ornaments, according to Caruso Affiliated, which owns the Americana. The company's other big L.A. mall, The Grove, got its similarly-sized Christmas tree last week.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Dr. Greggory DeVore, a fetal specialist from La Cañada Flintridge and GOP delegate, talked about the value of the independence and self-reliance during a talk at a symposium outside the Republican National Convention Tuesday morning. The talk was part of the "Newt U" series of talks and lectures hosted by former House Speaker Newt Gingrich. Tuesday's theme was "We Built It," echoing the topic of Day Two of the RNC itself, and focused primarily on business. During his talk, DeVore chronicled his 37-year medical career, beginning with his time in academic fields, to working in the corporate hospital environment, to finally opening his own private practice in 1990.
