On the surface Ben Stiller’s new comedy “Tropic Thunder” is an equal opportunity offender. Stiller has spent years working on a script that is a riff on Hollywood’s heart of darkness and takes pot shots at the movie industry’s treatment of race, mental disabilities, and the military. There’s nothing new in the ghoulishly greedy studio head, the tyrannical but terrified director, the actors so lost in narcissism that illusion is more immediate than reality.

Ten Years Ago The City Council approved its long-awaited wireless communications facility ordinance which, among other things, required that property owners within a 400-foot radius of a proposed microcell facility site would receive notice that such an installation was under consideration. The law was the product of about two years of study and recommendations by a committee. Twenty Years Ago Following months of study and discussion, the La Cañada school board in September 1993 approved the curriculum developed by the science department at La Cañada High School for teaching the prevention of Human Immuno-deficiency (HIV)

By Chris Sutton The second graders at Paradise Canyon Elementary School agreed there was not a better way to spend a rainy Monday at school than to listen to stories and songs. For an hour, the students were mesmerized one moment and laughing the next as they listened to storyteller Leslie Perry and musician Robert S. Hilton from the Pasadena Symphony. Perry has been telling and acting out his stories for the last 30 years, saying, "I tell stories to try and keep them alive."

There was no thought of homework or tests on the Palm Crest Elementary campus on Friday. The annual Back to School picnic focused on playing, eating and having a good time. Some students played kickball while others shot hoops. There was plenty of time for the jungle gym, swing set and just catching up with old friends over what they did doing the summer. Families picnicked on Thai food, sno-cones and Tommy?s hamburgers. The night was also a time for the school?s PTA to promote fundraiser Pins for Palm Crest, it?

While most of his friends were spending their summers on the beach, Amir Mojarradi, a senior at La Cañada High, did something just a bit more exotic: He trekked the Amazonian jungle. Last year, Mojarradi won a Los Angeles County science fair for his project dealing with efficiently creating electromagnetic generators to save copper and other resources. This experiment earned him a free expedition with the Earthwatch Institute, valued at just under $4,000. The Institute, a nonprofit organization that gives people ways to experience science with field research teams all over the world, gave Mojarradi choices between expeditions to Europe, Africa and South America.

The long awaited remake of "King Kong" is finally released. Peter Jackson, finally out of middle Earth, directed a movie that can only be described in two words: sad, but awesome. On an island surrounded by that familiar Kong mist that modern society has yet to discover, there is a great wall. Nobody knows who built it but it is meant to keep people out or something massive in. Aspiring filmmaker/producer Carl Denham (Jack Black) sees this as an opportunity to make an amazing movie and drags his crew into the heart of the island, despite warnings all around.
