While millions have spent the past couple of weeks mourning Michael Jackson, a few hundred locals turned out last Sunday to honor another late pop sensation. Steve Roth, an Elvis Presley impersonator, performed at Music in the Park to cap off the July 4 weekend. Roth, dressed in a powder blue and bedazzled polyester jumpsuit, performed many hits from Presley’s impressive and lengthy songbook, including “Viva Las Vegas” and “Devil in Disguise.” When he returned after a quick break, Roth was dressed in a red, white and blue outfit, complete with Elvis’ signature sunglasses, to perform some later hits.

Warm weather, classic cars, and local rockers Misplaced Priorities brought out hundreds of locals to Music in the Park this past Sunday. The free concert series had an added bonus this week, featuring a classic car show. “Oh man, I just love these old cars,” said Jim Gibbons of Pasadena, pointing at a 1967 Cobra Mustang. “They just don’t make them like that anymore!” Some came for the cars, while others came for the music. Misplaced Priorities is a classic rock band from La Cañada, featuring Mandy Boesche, Jeanne Nortao, Frank Dvoracek, Steve Stathatos, Rich Myers, Craig Windsor and Tom Reynolds.

”Anything goes” says it all when speaking and writing about New York City. It is indeed a special place. If Chicago is the city of big shoulders, then New York City is the city of big - everything imaginable. My wife, Marilyn, her mother and I ventured forth from La Cañada last month for an eight-day sojourn to this town with the big muscles. Frank Sinatra gets it right every time he sings, “New York, New York, I want to wake up in a city that never sleeps.” Of course it's not La Cañada or even Los Angeles.

Whoa! Somebody turned up the thermostat. Just a week ago I had two sweaters, a scarf, socks and warm boots on because I was freezing. Now I’m taking it all off because it has been pretty darn hot. Guess every year we have this spring heat wave, but I forget and it always creeps up to surprise me. My garden is loving it and the petunias that survived the frosty nights of the winter are all in full bloom. I like that kind of garden care—Grace does it. This weekend I will be slipping off to the 40 different greens of Ireland for a couple of weeks R and R with my younger sister.

The first thing you'll notice about painter Jenna Ronnquist's La Crescenta home is its neatness. On one wall sits a television. Much of the wall is bare. Another wall contains a firelace with pictures of family on the mantle. The wall is dotted by a college degree and other pictures. Ronnquist's workplace is also neat. The table is placed in such a way that the artist has a view of the backyard. A paintbrush holder with rows of clean paintbrushes sits to the left, a ceramic dog food bowl is on the table.
