You know we hear horrible stories every day and I guess I get numb to alot as a protetive device,Read More I'm sure. But this one really hit me. All those kids and the adults on a mission to improve their lives or the lives of others. Made me so sad. And this couple sounds so kind and lovely. Thank you for sharing it. Although it hurts.

My son went on a school trip to SF and is coming home today. I heard about the crash the first timeRead More it was broadcast and was worried sick. This tragedy is very heart wrenching for a parent like me and as a person. My prayers go out to those that lost their lives & their families as well as to those that were directly affected by the accident.

Tracy, I'm with you. Obviously, being a journalist, there are terrible stories everyday. But thisRead More one cuts through bone. It's just horrific in every way and has ties to people up and down the state, with LA County, Riverside County and Orange County hit hard.

Unfortunately, there's trouble brewing in his family, which is feuding over where to bury the bodyRead More http://studiocity.patch.com/groups/around-town/p/mikey-rooneys-family-feuding-where-to-bury-the-body

Wonderful. Most disgusting power play ever- squabbling over the issues of a deceased person. ThoughRead More Rooney should have had a will that specified that issue of burial. Still remembering Gregory Peck in that uniform right now...............

karma..goes around and comes around........maybe next will be Brian D"arcy~~!!
Lisa Ohlund March 29, 2014 at 01:11 am
Mr. or Ms. D. Jude - If by karma you mean that he will have a wonderful afterlife because of the wayRead More he lived this life,then I would agree with you; Col. Foley was the epitome of an officer and a gentleman and a heckuva water man. If you mean something derisive, then you never met him, and I will pray that one day you will rest in peace.
Sid Caesar has died. He was 91. Patch file photo.

If you ever get a chance to watch "Hail Sid Caesar!", it's a fantastic documentary. I'veRead More always found it fascinating that modern day comics continue to speak of Sid in awe and admiration.
Dave February 13, 2014 at 07:27 am
No question Caesar was a genius but he also had a great eye for talent, hand picking his co-stars onRead More "Show" and writers, Mel Brooks, an 18 year old Woody Allen, Neil Simon, Larry Gelbart and Carl Reiner to name some of the most prominent. I had the great privilege and pleasure to see Mr Caesar give a two hour talk in the board room of the Screen Actor's Guild on Wilshire just east of the La Brea Tarpits about 8 years ago. Although the once tall and strapping Caesar had become shrunken and bent with age, once he was seated on the dais with moderator Joe Mantegna, you'd have thought you had been transported back to 1954 as Caesar came alive telling us of his memories working with all these great talents while tossing out some of his best bits- the foreign language imitations being as fresh and funny as they were on "Show of Shows". It was a night I won't soon forget and I am so glad I was able to see him in this small and intimate room. Rest in Peace, Sid. We won't be seeing your like again any time soon.
GreenInOC February 13, 2014 at 08:21 am
@Dave, what a treat - I wish I had been able to listen to him speak in person.
Terri W February 17, 2013 at 09:03 pm
Got the pleasure of meeting Huell at a UC Davis fund raiser. He was very nice and so funny. We haveRead More a picture we took with him and also he signed a t-shirt we have framed. Almost all our trips are because of him. He helped us learn and love California. RIP Huell.
joebanana March 3, 2013 at 02:55 am
Wow, Huell is so cool. So sad to hear the tragic news, he'll be greatly missed. There will never beRead More anybody as cool as Huell. I hope KCET will keep playing reruns.

One of our family treasures. My daughter, Molly, was unimpressed, however, and did a greatRead More impersonation of his "Hah, Ahm Hoowell Howser, etc." which in turn became a special memory for me. We promise ourselves to visit at least one of his special places.

Hello Kirsten. This is Rina, and I am Bob's wife. Please see Mrs. Causey at the Farmer's MarketRead More on Saturday. Your mother knows which market. Mrs. Causey is looking forward to see you, your mother and your brother.

Wow, unresolved business. It's very sad as an outsider to see the horrible fued going on whenRead More someone has lost thier life. It's awful.
John Waldrip December 17, 2012 at 12:47 am
What matters the most is the truth of how Rebecca died. All this bitter back and forth about whoRead More behaved a certain way or who lied about a memorial is ridiculous as are the conspiracy theories. All of you should move on with your lives and just honor Rebecca's memory. It's sad to see people in their 50s and 60s acting like attention whoring teenagers! I don't know any of you but if someone I'm related to passes away and this happens, I'd call out everyone and spread equal blame to all of them!

Nora Ephron understood that an infinite number of ideas are out there and she was as capable ofRead More finding them as anyone. Time wasn't a limit for her. The example I use in my class is when she created the story for the movie "Bewitched." She got a call from a friend at Paramount one afternoon who said that Nicole Kidman had been in the studio that day and had shown everyone how she could twitch her nose. Nicole would be coming back the next day and the friend wanted to know if Nora could write a story that they could pitch. Nora didn't hesitate, said yes, and wrote one that evening. The next day Nora's story was pitched to Nicole; Nicole said yes; and the movie got made.

I met Dick Clark in 1961 as a member of the audience at American Bandstand in Philadelphia. I livedRead More in Lakewood at the time and presented him with a key to the city of Lakewood. One of his questions was: What is the one thing you do not like about California? and I answered him loudly the San Francisco Giants, as I was and still a Dodger Fan. I also got to attend the Dick Clark show in New York City that same summer, and gave him a 10 foot Beechnut Spearmint Flavor Ific gum rapper chain, which was the thing to do.
Joann Norvell Atkins April 19, 2012 at 01:52 pm
LOVED DICK CLARK...he will truly be missed, R.I.P. Mr Clark...
Susan Tellem April 18, 2012 at 06:17 pm
I loved Dick Clark. I grew up in NY loving American Bandstand and even had tickets to his show whenRead More I was a pre-teen and teen drooling over Frankie Avalon and Fabian. He was always smiling and happy and was just a smart, great guy. RIP.
