The Glendale bear known as “Meatball” has had to acclimate to new food and a new home during captivity, and by the end of the month, he'll have to adjust to a new neighbor. Since being transported to the Lions, Tigers & Bears animal sanctuary in San Diego County in August, the bear known for his appetite has been living in a 15-by-20-foot quarantine facility while officials raise money to build him a new 4-acre habitat. But that will soon change when he gets a new neighbor later this month - “Sugar Bear,” a male ursine that was rescued in June from a closed sanctuary in Ohio.

Everitt said Sugar Ray is the only act so far that has been signed to perform on the main stage. In addition to the main stage, there will be four live music venues at the party.

Regarding Katherine Gould's editorial on food additives ("Everything in there is bad for you," May 7), I'm glad to hear another voice has joined my own in getting the news out there about food additives. Food manufacturers (think: Kraft) sneak this stuff into our food without fanfare and without identifying it as "new formula." They know it isn't good; it isn't even real food. High-fructose corn syrup is predigested sugar, which goes right into the bloodstream for a sugar rush.

DAVID SILVA When I was very little, I used to love to watch my mother make coffee. Mom made her coffee the old-fashioned way. She'd plop a cup or so of ground coffee into a small pot of water, then put the pot on a burner. Once the water began to boil, the steaming black crust that had formed on top of it would suddenly break apart and slip beneath the bubbles. This was the part that most fascinated me. Every time I watched that dark continental plate of grounds sink beneath the water, I'd imagine that this what would happen to the West Coast when the Big One finally hit. The second the pot began to boil, my mother would pour the brew through a copper strainer into a steel coffeepot, and set it aside.
