Remodel, yes, develop, no

Thanks go to Chris Anstead and others for pushing that our Ralphs shopping center needs updating. Renovation here has been in the planning process for a long time, but this information was not available to the public until sometime after Dec. 1, when I checked. I am so thankful that this shopping center will finally get a renovation and that […]

Singing, dancing talent floods the stage

PLAY REVIEW /// ‘Singin’ in the Rain’

Gene Kelly made dancing through puddles look effortless in the 1952 film classic “Singin’ in the Rain,” but there’s nothing easy about taking that beloved movie and transferring it to the stage. Actors in the stage version have the unenviable task of measuring up to the iconic big-screen performances of Kelly, Donald O’Connor and Debbie Reynolds. Directors have it just […]

Bicyclists should pay to play

The hazards of bicyclists and motorists sharing the road, specifically on narrow Mulholland Highway, has become very dangerous, not just for the bicyclists, but for the motorists as well. There is no bike lane on this road and in places the shoulder is almost nonexistent. It seems inevitable that someone is going to get hurt as more bicyclists seem determined […]
