The historic Lanterman House was open to the public for viewing on Sunday afternoon and visitors were invited to wear summer white clothing and picnic in the yard. Women strolled the lawn with wide-brimmed hats and white vintage gowns, while men dressed in straw boater hats and cream-colored suits, appearing like they’d come straight out of a Renoir or Seurat painting. Built in 1915, the Lanterman House is a concrete Craftsman style house with period furniture, arts-and-crafts pottery and wood-paneled walls.

“The Olympic games are coming and she's on the luge team/ She's the fastest on the ice that anybody's ever seen/ Go Kate, go!” - Ukulele Bartt It's hard to know somebody after just one phone call. It's an even more arduous notion when that phone call is nine hours apart, 5,800 miles away and 45 minutes late. That's how I met Kate Hansen, though, finally getting through for an interview nearly an hour late as a sunny Southern California morning was out my window and a cold German night carried on outside of her hotel room in Altenberg.

Aloha! There's a tropical breeze floating over from the South Seas, making its way to the Palm Crest playground…. Do you hear the plink-plink of an ukulele? Do you hear the bamboo rustling?

On Saturday, May 6, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., the Palm Crest Playground will become a Tiki village filled with sarongs and savages — also known as "our children."

Misplaced Priorities may be the name of the band but there is nothing misplaced about its members' priorities when it comes to raising funds for various community organizations. In fact, since first performing in 2001 at a private home in La Cañada after putting themselves up as an auction item for the La Cañada High's Spartan Booster Club, the group has helped raise over $100,000. Self-proclaimed leader of Misplaced Priorities, La Cañada native Tom Reynolds, is a man with self-depreciating wit and humor.

East West Players, the nation's premier Asian American theater organization, presents the return of the Japanese American-themed holiday show The Nisei Widows Club Holiday on Thin Ice for 10 performances only December 9-18. Written by Tim Dang, Marilyn Tokuda and Denise Iketani, the original The Nisei Widows Club was a box office success in 2003 that used comedy to explore the lives of widowed Japanese American nisei (second-generation) women -- senior citizens who experienced the internment camps of World War II. Outstanding support from the Japanese American community prompted Dang, Tokuda and Iketani to collaborate again to create The Nisei Widows Club Holiday On Thin Ice in 2004.
