Looking every bit as statuesque as Lady Liberty, actress Tracy Scoggins spoke the stirring words inscribed on the famed New York tribute to the United States as The Pasadena Pops Orchestra began its Music Under the Stars concert with Bruce Healey's arrangement of Irving Berlin's "God Bless America."

This year's annual Veterans Day celebration has moved to a new location.

The Pasadena City Council Monday night will take up the plan for the 30-acre Hahamongna Annex at its meeting at Pasadena City Hall. The planning effort for the northern annex to the Hahamongna Watershed Park has been underway since 2005, when Pasadena purchased the property from the Metropolitan Water District. The work has included residents from Pasadena, La Cañada and Altadena who remain concerned about some aspects of the proposal. Mary Barrie, a trails advocate from La Cañada, said she objects to the removal of some 70 non-native trees from the annex, including some mature species such as stone pines, Chinese elms and California peppers.

State Assemblyman Anthony Portantino (D- La Cañada) is leading a hearing on Friday in Pasadena about the effectiveness and economic impact of state tax credits that encourage filmmakers to keep shooting in California. Sacramento passed tax credits 18 months ago to slow the trend of American films and television shows being shot overseas to cut costs, a phenomenon referred to in the industry as “runaway production.” Portantino was appointed in February to the California Film Commission and serves on the Assembly’s Select Committee on Preservation of California’s Entertainment Industry.

Photographs permanently record a moment in time, forever frozen on a piece of film. Many photographers focus on that aspect of their medium, but Harry Kerker likes to view the world from a wider perspective. Avoiding the tendency to capture a single instant in time, the local photographer uses his work to tell stories. His collection of photographs, currently on display at Penelope?s Café in La Cañada, encompasses a myriad of subjects, from studies of light and shadow in his home to a panorama of a glorious Hawaiian sunset.

For several years, I refused to read the "Harry Potter" books. After Sept. 11, 2001, without fully understanding why, I sought them out. There was something comforting about a magical world, hidden from our own. A world where good and evil battle, but the good guys win. A world where valor is valued. So, in the days after Sept. 11, I began my retreat to "Harry Potter." Some days, I watched the news. On others, I read the books. And I began to remember the hot July nights of my childhood — root beer floats, midnight stars and dozing on the lawn, looking for bugs and ants.

After more than $100,000, 30,000 volunteer hours and 10,000 rose petals, the La Cañada Flintridge Tournament of Roses Association's 2006 float entry, "The Great Howldini," entertained the crowd that braved heavy rains to line Pasadena's famed Colorado Boulevard Monday morning. This year's float won the Tournament of Roses' Theme Trophy, the award given to the float that best presents the parade's theme, which this year was "It's Magical." La Cañada's float featured a number of magic tricks, including a dog that pulled a rabbit out of a hat in a puff of smoke.
