Pony rides, a petting zoo and a plethora of activities made Saturday?s Dragon Faire the place to be Saturday as St. George?s Preschool parents put on the school?s annual fund-raising event.

As the cool kids would say, it sucks to be a mom at my age. And they would say it if they had to deal with a brain as old as mine. A dozen times each day I forget why I am where I am, and why I’m doing what I’m doing. I’ve turned to chemicals for help; I’ve taken gingko biloba (one of the oldest trees on earth with a unique vein pattern to its leaves, which eventually forms a lovely, spreading canopy that switches almost overnight to brilliant lemon yellow in the fall)

Hollywood's legendary El Capitan Theatre will present the wildest show in town from April 14 through May 11 as part of its special "Spring Break" engagement of Walt Disney Pictures' new computer-animated feature, "The Wild." In addition to the film, live on stage before each show, moviegoers will have a chance to meet a colorful cast of exotic birds from around the world accompanied by their keepers from the Los Angeles Zoo and Botanical Gardens. "The Wild" follows an odd assortment of animals from the New York Zoo who discover what a jungle the city can be when one of their own is mistakenly shipped to the wild and they embark on a dangerous mission to rescue him. An impressive vocal ensemble featuring Kiefer Sutherland, Jim Belushi, Janeane Garofalo, Greg Cipes, William Shatner and Eddie Izzard, and Richard Kind lend their talents to the film's animal characters.

She had visited with her sister, who lives in Glendale, when she was just in the sixth grade and fell in love with California.

One candidate a positive force After attending the presentation of school board candidates at La Cañada High School, we decided to have a coffee in our home for Ernest Koeppen, and were more convinced than ever that he would be an excellent school board member. He is a a businessman, a concerned parent, devoted to encouraging our students and giving them opportunities in technical engineering and industrial arts. He is not political - he is open and willing to listen - we need better communication and openness from the board to the community and better accountability.
