A near-capacity crowd of more than 800 people filled Lanterman Auditorium last Friday to hear the vocal stylings of the Texas Tenors - and in so doing, raised more than $50,000 for the Community Scholarship Foundation of La Cañada Flintridge. The show was the culmination of a relationship between the trio - Marcus Collins, J.C. Fisher and John Hagen - and La Cañada Flintridge that grew from an encounter between the group and local resident Martha Burns on a cruise ship in 2009.

Hurrah for the red, white and blue. It is our nation's birthday this weekend. Even though the Fourth of July falls on Sunday, most of the nation will observe the holiday on Monday. It was not until a year after the Declaration of Independ-ence had been signed that the first celebration of America's freedom from Britain was celebrated in Philadelphia with bonfires, the ringing of bells and illuminations of many hues shot into a darkened sky. By 1812 celebrations on July fourth became more commonplace on the east coast.

I thought I had said my piece earlier but I just can not let Keythe Farleys's remarks go unanswered. So the co-author of this "Bat Boy" thinks it is right for our community. What a surprise! And very early in his comment he labels those who do not think so "small-minded and intolerant." Another surprise from one whose work is supposed to promote tolerance! In so far as a majority of parents, administrators and school board members supporting this play for our city I wonder if many of them have their own doubts from comments I have read and changes they have asked for in the play.
