The large Mediterranean-style house still stands, high above Foothill Boulevard. The original owners were Walter and Beulah Overell. In the 1930s and 1940s, Walter Overell was one of the wealthiest men in Flintridge. He made his first fortune in the furniture business. This was followed by other successful investments. Walter doted on his wife, Beulah Jungquist Overell. Walter loved Beulah so much that liked to name things after her. Given the opportunity, he christened Beulah Drive.

This week at the movie theater, there is something to fit everyone's taste. Two movies in particular stand out as wonderful examples of that: "School for Scoundrels" and "Open Season." First up, "School for Scoundrels," which stars Billy Bob Thornton as Dr. P, the teacher of a secret confidence-building class that helps losers to be cool. Roger (Jon Heder of "Napoleon Dynamite" fame) enrolls in the class to gain enough confidence to ask out his love interest, Amanda (Jacinda Barrett)

The parade is over. The nights are short and the days are long. La Cañada, home to book worms and book groups, is the inspiration for the following books. Thanks to the wonders of self-publication, some of us may be named in Arthur Johnson's “The Norman Rockwell Years” (CreateSpace, 2011), which recounts “an idyllic youth” in the La Cañada of the 1950s and early '60s, complete with references to the Youth House (now the Community Center of La Cañada Flintridge), St. Bede's, Flintridge Prep and Skunk Hollow.

Scientists at JPL can look back at 2005 as the year they ran through cosmic rings, had two Martian birthday parties, and smacked head first into a comet, on purpose. The spacecraft Cassini-Huygens ended the year with a flyby of Saturn's moon, Titan. The spacecraft has been sending back images and data from the planet since its arrival in July 2004. Scientists have discovered new information on the make-up of the famous rings but also on the strange formation they produce. In one case they viewed images of Saturn's F ring which seemed to have knots, kinks and clumps in it. What they discovered through Cassini was that the shepherding satellite Prometheus' gravitational pull caused the unusual phenomenon.

Jacqueline Chen La Cañada High School's Oak Grove Field was filled with music and merriment Tuesday night when students, families, friends and faculty gathered for the 7/8 small schools' annual back-to-school picnic, "Under the Oaks." The field, located behind the middle schools' classrooms, was a new location for the event which had been held for many years at the front of the school, under the oak trees. A student was overheard saying that the new venue was not really under the oaks, but it was "cool" anyway.

Although the La Cañada Unified School District Board of Governors had unanimously approved their appointments and the audience had given them a loud round of applause, it really wasn't official until the polo shirts were presented. When William Loose and Damon Dragos held up their white La Cañada Spartans' sports shirts with red and gold trim, they truly had become members of the La Cañada Flintridge educational community. Loose and Dragos, along with Wendy Sinnette, were hired by the LCUSD Governing Board, at a special meeting on Monday at La Cañada High, to fill three administrative positions in the district.

I know that the McCourts’ divorce is really none of my business and it is simply rude to mention it, but the sad fact remains: The Dodgers need the money for the bullpen. The bullpen, of course, is where the relief pitchers warm up during a baseball game. Meanwhile, Frank and Jamie McCourt continue to litigate whether the Dodgers franchise is community or separate property. It is estimated that Jamie’s lawyers have billed $9 million, and that lawyers for Frank are in the same ballpark.

Women in exquisite formal gowns and glittering jewels accompanied by gentlemen in tuxedos were the center of attraction for photographers as the flash of their cameras lit up the night. It was the opening night, Sept. 17, at the Music Center's Dorothy Chandler Pavilion for the Los Angeles Opera's 25th season and the eagerly anticipated performance of Tchaikovsky's dramatic “Eugene Onegin.” This is only the second time that L.A. Opera has presented a Tchaikovsky opera - the first being “Queen of Spades,” in 2001.
