Ryan Davidson is a 12 years old who lives in Wisconsin, where it's really cold this time of year. He's had a brain tumor removed--twice. He's lost his hair and a lot of his energy to 18 months of chemotherapy. But, there is one thing that keeps him going. He loves USC, and when he's feeling down, he has a secret weapon--he pulls out his scrapbook and relives the time he and his family spent with the team last season. But, after the USC-UCLA game earlier this month, he's got a host of brand new memories.

?Space, the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise.? Yes, boys and girls, Hollywood?s long winter of Oscar-primed weepies is over and that glorious summer of box office boffos is upon us. If the new ?Star Trek? is the opening salvo, we?re in for an exciting time. Without any previous experience of the vast and variable ?Star Trek? lore, director J. J. Abrams has taken a tired trope from the 1960s Cold War and turned it into a spiffy new thrill ride. All the favorite characters of a dyed-in-the-wool Trekkie are in place but fleshed out by new, fresh faces.

  The third chapter of the X-Men movie trilogy, "X-Men III The Last Stand," has just recently been released and from a comic book purist's point of view, it is one of the most embarrassing attempts in a long time, more even than the "HULK" film of 2003. This movie picks up in the not too distant future where the mutants are somewhat accepted in society and Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters is flourishing. Though it takes place after the second film, Nightcrawler is nowhere to be seen and his absence is never explained clearly.

It might have been the full moon outside, or just a bad night altogether, but Flintridge Prep's 20-0 loss against host Maranatha High last Saturday might have taught the Rebels that there is one thing they will have to watch out for more often - an opposing quarterback who can throw. The object of Prep's downfall was senior Eric Schultz, the Minutemen's secret weapon, who started things off for Maranatha with an 18-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Mark Love with three minutes left in the opening quarter.

In a faraway land there is a tiny kingdom; peaceful, prosperous and rich in tradition. Within the kingdom resides an ogre with a face only a mother can love. Ogre, (AKA Dr. Joe) lives with his lovely wife "Beatrice" and their daughters, Sabine and Simone. Once upon a time the ogre received a mysterious letter. It was an invitation. It read; "...join us at the Marine Corps Ball celebrating the 231st birthday of our beloved Corps: Black Tie." The ogre, looking like a deer caught in the headlights, screamed; "But I have nothing to wear; and I don't have a black tie!"

Dining with Duvall by Lynn Duvall At our house, we like to experiment with ingredients for a chef's salad. This week's column is a chef's salad of topics, generated from my mailbox, e-mail, and phone messages. Joyce and Fred Brumbacher, a retired couple from La Crescenta, were among the readers who accepted my challenge to try an unusual grand-prize winning Portobello mushroom pork chop recipe. Joyce said, "I can't take the credit. It was my husband who insisted we try it."

Following a time-honored tradition, on Saturday, Dec.30, members of the venerable La Cañada Thursday Club will proudly present nine young women as their newest Les Fleurettes Debutantes. The Bal Blanc de Noel, a black-tie event, will be held at the Omni Hotel in downtown Los Angeles. The Thursday Club, established in 1912, created the Les Fleurettes program in 1951 for daughters, granddaughters and nieces of club members. While the Bal Blanc de Noel is the culmination and celebration of an 18-month program of community and social service, cultural, personal development and etiquette lessons, it is the hope of the Thursday Club that they will take lessons learned in the program and continue to contribute to society by volunteering and serving their communities in years to come.
