NORTHEAST GLENDALE — Organizers of a “listening workshop” Tuesday tried to get a message through to about 1,000 first- and second-graders that research shows has been falling on deaf ears: Turn the volume down or risk irreversible hearing loss. The crowd of students from Glendale and nearby communities filled the Glendale Civic Auditorium on Tuesday for a presentation on safe listening habits, like turning down the volume on headphones and giving ears a break from MP3 players.

Josh Kleinbaum is the city hall reporter for the News-Press. Quentin Tarantino opens "Kill Bill Vol. 2" in a familiar locale -- the same church that he opened the first volume. But from that first scene, it's clear that Tarantino made a very different film from the bloodbath of "Vol. 1." In the first movie, The Bride (Uma Thurman) is lying on the ground, covered in blood, about to be shot in the head by Bill (David Carradine). This go-round, Tarantino rewinds about 15 minutes.

Combining education with entertainment can be an extremely effective learning tool. If a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down, a healthy dose of rock music can aid in the digestion of elementary school curriculum. Costa Mesa's Vanguard University is employing this exciting instructional method with its high-voltage production of "Schoolhouse Rock Live," the stage version of the popular television series that ran on ABC from 1973 to 1985, presenting English, math, history and more in a lively musical format.

It was this January and I was walking to my car after dinner with a friend in Pasadena. It was cold enough (surprisingly) that I was wearing a trench coat. As we withstood the hustle and bustle of shoppers and goers, we heard a pair of young writers call out if we wanted to buy their book of short stories. So I did and so, I read it. Now, I write this review more as a comment on the energy of young people with dreams ahead of them and much like my brief encounter with them, their stories of slices of life and their book called, Pale House.

As I try to do every year, I look for something that has happened throughout the last 12 months that has taught me something and has expanded my abilities to see things in a different way. The act of forgiveness by the Amish stands above every other example in my search this year. After five of their children were killed by a mentally unstable man who walked into a quiet rural school house, the Amish immediately put out the message of peace. Without hesitation they sent the word against vengeance.

BOB HOPE AIRPORT — The number of passengers at Bob Hope Airport in 2009 fell to its lowest point in eight years, officials reported Monday.

The volume of passengers peaked at more than 5.9 million in 2007.

“The spirit, the will to win and the will to excel — these are the things that endure and these are the qualities that are so much more important than any of the events that occasion them.” — Vince Lombardi   To say there was an air of heartache and disbelief surrounding Friedman Field on Friday night would be a bit of an understatement. Quite simply there was a deflating feeling that took over the majority of those gathered to root, cheer, coach and play for St. Francis.

If you're curious as to just how good Joe Mudie is and how great he can be, don't ask him. If you're wondering about how hard the St. Francis High football running back and cornerback works and how much time he's put into the weight room in the hopes of getting better and avoiding injuries such as those that sidelined him a season ago, just don't wait around for him to tell you about it. Mudie's simply not the type to boast of his own merits, nor...

This letter is in response to Eugene and Barbara Smith’s open letter to Sens. Dianne Feinstein and Barbara Boxer and Rep. Adam Schiff (“Health-care plan is not one we can afford,” Aug. 14) regarding their opposition to current proposed health-care reform. As self-proclaimed “influential” Democrats and senior citizens, the Smiths are certainly misinformed of the intent of the various health-care-reform proposals presented for consideration by members of their chosen political party, including Medicare reform, legislation both past and present supported by all of the government representatives they mentioned.

There can never be too many events that bring the different strands of our community together. One quick way to bring people together is through social gatherings. It’s a good way to have people whose paths wouldn’t normally cross to come into contact with one another. The beauty of it is, as we get to know individuals personally, their labels begin to fade and their social, racial and political classifications begin to become secondary or even unimportant. The individual begins to shine.
