I don’t know what the big hoopla was about last Friday night. The way Kaitzer was giving orders and meticulously attending to every detail, you’d think that Sabine and Simone were leaving for college. Granted, the girls were performing in the production of “The Rock Singer and His Greatest Hit,” but they weren’t going to the moon. Since she was teaching all day, Kaitzer had punctiliously laid out all the girls’ clothes, sewed and ironed their costumes, left snacks in the fridge, prepared dinner, and left me explicit instructions on how to get the girls to La Cañada Presbyterian at precisely 6:45 p.m. You’d think she didn’t trust me. As she walked out the door she said with a supercilious grin, “Can you do the girls’ make-up?

Dani Bowman, a 16-year old La Cañada High School sophomore who has autism, said she started to feel famous on Saturday as she signed autograph after autograph in front of La Cañada Books and Toys on Saturday. “I feel like a celebrity, I think I'm becoming one,” Dani said. She spent two hours Saturday signing “Danny and Goliath,” a recently published book created by John Benjamin Martin, Joey Travolta and Richard Willich and illustrated by Dani. Although contributing to a published book would be a crowning achievement for most high-school students, it’s one of Dani’s humbler highlights in her short but already bright career.

Or your cellphone is about to ring. Meanwhile, Twitter, Facebook, Earthlink or Gmail collect your messages. You’ll read them later, when you are ready. I am a child of the digital age. That’s why, on a recent Sunday night, Len and I caught a cool new show on NBC. The show is called “Kings.

Dan Bullock was intent on joining the Marine Corps. He was only 14 and much too young to fight in Vietnam. But the passion of youth often defies possibility, and one finds a way to follow one's inclinations. To make it appear as though he was 18, Dan carefully changed his birth date on his birth certificate from Dec. 21, 1953, to Dec. 21, 1949. Subsequently Private Bullock reported for duty at the age of 14. He graduated from boot camp in '68 and went to war shortly thereafter.

There was no question that the Bell Bombers were the best neighborhood football team in the Bronx and were heavily favored to beat The Golden Wakefield Bullets. The game was touted as a grudge match, there was a lot of bad blood between the neighborhoods and it would be decided on the football field. The Bombers were sponsored by Coach Bell, who owned the Chevy dealership on Fordham Road. They had uniforms, practice drills, and the best players in the Bronx. When the Bombers took the field, they looked magnificent in their black helmets.

It was hard for Matt Faber to believe it was all happening as the seconds ticked off the clock. The forward for the La Cañada High boys' basketball team had just brought down the biggest rebound of his life — off a potential game-tying shot with 11 seconds left in the fourth quarter of the CIF Southern Section Division III-AA game against Price High at the Anaheim Convention Center. The ball bounced off the rim right to Faber, who looked upcourt and saw his teammate, Dario CiVon, standing all alone on the other side of the court.
