However, the issue that struck me hardest was that the committee ignored the amazing quality of

Gerry Beach, who was concealed and wearing camouflage, was bitten in the knee by the coyote before it ran off, he said. “I believe he thought I was a turkey,” Beach said. The Clover Valley resident sustained two minor puncture wounds from the bite but had

Heavy metal has been through countless stylistic changes since the late ’60s. What started with the leaden tempos, distorted guitars and wailing vocals of Cream, Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath has mutated into countless sub-genres. From the glammed-up poodle rock of ’80s bands like Winger and Poison to the church-burning nihilism of the Norwegian black metal scene, metal has become

Last fall the newspaper’s director of human resources was walking through the press room when an object on the ground caught her eye. Initially Sharla Cartzdafner thought it was a piece of painted silk — something that would be a little out of place near a printing press. When she picked it up, she realized it was paper from our

The comedy “Sealed for Freshness” is a visit to the year 1968. Not the 1968 of political activism, women’s liberation and individual choice but instead a visit to a Tupperware party attended by five seemingly 1950s-era women. These are women who believe their roles should be as good housewives, spouses and mothers. However, their reality is otherwise, and that’s both

I recall teaching a class at the University of California, Los Angeles, titled composing to picture. And also giving presentations of how music affects film, first playing the scene without
