Seated around a couple of tables for lunch one day a few months ago, members of my tightly-knit women’s networking group were considering a question that had just been posed. I’m paraphrasing here, because I can’t remember the question exactly as it was worded, but it centered on what piece of advice each of us had been given by our parents that we consider valuable today. While the other networkers seemed to have a little glow to them as they recalled the wisdom of their parents, I was thinking that most of the advice I received in my youth — usually in the form of an old saying — irritated me. Nonetheless I nodded in agreement with the others in our group that the proverb, “This too shall pass,” often uttered by a female member of the family to sooth a frazzled young adult, has turned out to be a truism, at least most cases.

I t was a sunny Memorial Day weekend afternoon. I was relaxing with our dog (Miss Audrey Hepburn) and a glass of iced tea. Suddenly, Miss Hepburn began to dig into the lawn, her long black nose burrowing into the recently watered earth. Audrey, I said. Stop that! Miss Hepburn emerged with a small folded piece of paper in her teeth. Her tail wagged as she brought it to me. Carefully, I unfolded the paper. It was a record of a commencement speech by former President George H.W. Bush.

The Bell Bombers were the best neighborhood football team in the Bronx and heavily favored to beat The Golden Wakefield Bullets. The game was a grudge match; there was a lot of bad blood between the neighborhoods and it would be decided on the football field. The Bombers, sponsored by Coach Bell, had uniforms and practice drills and when they took the field, they looked magnificent in their black helmets. I played for the Bullets; we had no chance. The Golden Wakefield Bullets, the name still resonates as it flows off the tip of my tongue.

Q. It’s that time of year again, graduation season, when many of our youth are getting ready to leave the nest to live away from home for the first time in their lives. Do you have any words of wisdom for our college-bound graduates when it comes to balancing experimentation and self-discovery with maintaining the integrity of their value systems? In other words, how can a teenager remain open to personal growth through a range of new social and intellectual experiences while at the same time continue to “be themselves”?

A new law authored by Assemblyman Anthony Portantino (D-La Cañada Flintridge) will make it possible for the state Legislature to get the help of 10 scientists and engineers as staff without any cost to the state. The bill, AB 575, just signed into law by the governor, would provide committees with the equivalent of 10 doctoral level fellows chosen and paid for by an elite research organization. Portantino said the bill ?offers a unique opportunity? for lawmakers to get the help without any budget commitment by the state.

While holiday shoppers spend fervently, to meet the holiday deadline, countless dollars in U.S. currency are exchanged between shoppers and vendors. But, what if that one $20 bill used to buy a gift was fake? Secret Service officials say all it takes are a few seconds of attention to avoid counterfeit bills. "They are of a very poor quality, but because everyone is in a rush ... a lot of that is missed," said Don Masters, assistant special agent in charge, for the Secret Service.
