But then it was quickly brought to the attention of the assemblage that those were also the colors of USC, the university that Joe Thompson, incoming Chamber president, attended.

This past long weekend I decided to gather up my dog Lola and get out of town. We headed along El Camino Real to beautiful Santa Barbara to visit the "Queen of the Missions" and my twin sister, Elaine, along with her husband, Larry. The warm Santa Ana winds that had been blowing in our valley followed me to this picturesque coastal city. A special treat for us was our daily walk along the breakwater by the harbor. Each day we were warmed by hotter than usual breezes. Oh, how I love the smell of the sea. I often wonder why I live so far away from the ocean.

Every so often we publish news stories or op-ed pieces that give us reason - based on previous experiences - to expect to receive letters to the editor the following week. When we don't hear a word after running something potentially controversial, it catches me by surprise. This week, I'm taken aback by the dead silence that met the news we reported last Thursday about the two Supreme Court decisions that effectively restored the rights of same-sex couples to marry in our state and provided them with federal benefits previously denied by the Defense of Marriage Act. We ran the main story at the top of the front page, along with a sidebar article, which centered on interviews with local pastors who may or may not be offering services to gay and lesbian couples at their respective churches.
