This last summer we attended a fabulous party; a Fellini retrospective. Everyone came as a character from one of his films. I chose Juliette of the Spirits (loosely interpreted) and wore a little aubergine velvet dress, stockings with seams, and pointy-toed heels — the kicker was false eyelashes made of curly chicken feathers. It was a startling look, like little puffy clouds atop my lids. As we drove up their street we could see the glow from the black-and-white movie playing across the face of the garage and in the distance, on treetops a block away, another Fellini film played to the sky. The pool was the site of the third film, my choice!

Wow, there has been a fast and furious social buzz going on around town. I'll try to catch you up on all the news. I recently went to see one of the most glorious operas presented by the Los Angeles Opera - “Romeo and Juliette,” written by Charles Gounod and conducted this time around by Placido Domingo. Beautiful, sumptuous, sensual, tragic - these are only a few words to describe this opulent production. Everything about this new rendering of the beloved Shakespeare story of star-crossed lovers is magnificent - lush costumes, sets, and lighting.

If the audience attending soprano Alison England?s one-woman show on Sunday night thought they would be in for a night of stuffy operatic arias they were gladly mistaken. The performance titled ?Opera, Broadway and Beyond? was held at the La Cañada Presbyterian Church, as a benefit for the United Nations Millennium Development Goals. England began her program with several arias from operas in various languages. ?It?s about at this point of the show when husbands, or partners, turn and say ?

I remember the day as though it were yesterday. It was Oct. 12, 1960. Nikita Khrushchev banged his shoe like a tyrant while addressing the United Nations as he proclaimed that Russia would dominate America. At the time I was a member of Boy Scout Troop 136, had just made First Class, and was promoted to lead the Wolverine patrol. That evening during our scout meeting, Mr. Donahue, our scoutmaster, gathered the boys together and spoke of the day's events relative to the Russian premier's proclamations.

TEMPLE CITY - Any time the La Cañada High softball team has Olivia Leyva on base, it's a good sign. That again proved to be the case Friday, when La Cañada met host Temple City in a Rio Hondo League contest. Leyva had two hits, stole three bases and scored two runs to help La Cañada pick up a 7-3 win. “Olivia brings everything to us, from being steady on offense and defense to providing leadership,” said La Cañada Coach KC Mathews, whose team improved to 14-7, 7-2 and is trailing Monrovia (8-1)
