For two years I have been honored to be able to write about ?Civility? for the La Cañada Valley Sun. ?Civility? is about kindness and consideration for others. The practice of civility will make this world a better place in which to live. I write about ?Civility? which includes appearance, behavior, and communication. As the year comes to a close, the next two issues will have quotes, inspired by an e-mail I received and verses that I have read. I have expanded on these quotes that are dear to my heart and will help to define ?

The irony of last week's article on page 22 of the Valley Sun did not escape me. Accompanied by a photo, the story described LCHS principal Mike Leininger's and superintendent Sue Leabo's recent trip to Korea. (The trip was not funded by our school district and was a wonderful opportunity to promote cultural awareness which will be valuable in our own academic community.) Meanwhile in the same issue of the Sun, pages 14 and 15 published letters to the editor decrying these same folks' handiwork erasing 20 years of LCHS art students' "cultural legacy."

It was a dark and stormy night and in Louis Leterrier?s new film, ?The Incredible Hulk,? Bruce Banner?s liberated id crashes through screaming crowds and flips cars like Frisbees at hovering helicopters. Oh, you?ve heard this story! Well never fear, this version has some interesting twists and two terrific performances that set it apart from earlier attempts. Inevitably, some impressively large, incredibly vicious creature will go mano y mano with another impressively large, incredibly vicious creature to a symphony of thunderous explosions and cataclysmic fireworks, but this particular movie road to chaos is a surprisingly exciting one. The new ?

(When that project did not come to fruition, Safeway, the parent company of Vons, purchased Plaza de La Cañada on Foothill at Oakwood and now has plans in place for a new Vons store there.)   Twenty Years Ago La Cañada Flintridge resident Michael Gross, star of TV’s “Family Ties,” joined Verdugo Hills Hospital’s Careful Cat mascot in urging families to begin a smoke-free tradition during the Great American Smokeout of 1987.

Tom was the local heartthrob. He never missed a workout. He spent hours at the gym (where I was working my way through college) lifting weights for his upper body, mostly his biceps. His legs were thin but he said the “curls were for the girls.” He never wanted help, said he “had it all figured it out.” We like to see results for the effort we put into exercising. By golly if we’re going to spend the time, we want to see “muscles.” But keep in mind, muscles are not only on display showing how “fit” you are, they do everything from helping you breathe and walk to digest your food and pump blood throughout your whole body.

Developed by the Ontario Science Centre in collaboration with Yellowbrink Holman Exhibitions, the traveling exhibit starts off in LA, then moves to its hometown of Toronto.
