How do we live our lives? Do we go through the motions and allow ourselves to be blown to and fro by the circumstances we encounter? Or do we strive to call upon God for assistance when life gets tough? Honestly, I have been on both sides of this fence. Since accepting Jesus as an adult, I thankfully have been able to seek his face and call upon him in many of my times of need. But truthfully, there have been times when life got so hectic and painful that I have been overcome by stress and just gone through the motions.

Of course, there are a lot of good pedestrians, but the ones who don?t wait until they can cross without making a car stop, waddle across so slowly that crawling would be faster, or start walking when the pedestrian light is flashing and there are eight cars lined up to make a right or left turn are the ones who really annoy me (?City is getting too dangerous to walk in,? Mailbag, April 19). I push a walk button only when I feel the intersection is too dangerous to take any chances.

In the interest of complete disclosure, I will state that when the film "RV" opened, I had no desire to see it. However, a friend had recently described it as "hysterical," so I selected it when given a list of films to choose for reviewing. I won't say that it's excellent, or even anything closely resembling a classic comedy of cinematic importance, but keep it within its limited confines of cute and predictable family fare, and you won't leave the theater feeling cheated.

For no other reason than to create publicity, media people are always making movie lists. If someone ever comes up with the one titled "Movies That Didn't Need to Be Made," I would nominate "The Man." It's far from brilliant, but should not be dismissed as horrible. Perhaps the biggest problem is that you've seen it all before with alternate titles as "Beverly Hills Cop," "48 Hours" or "Lethal Weapon." It's the two guys with nothing in common who get thrown together against their wishes under trying circumstances and have to work as a team to take care of the bad guys and save the day. In this version, Derrick Vann (Samuel L. Jackson)

GAINS FILM BUFF Allison Clark didn't set out to be a living example of an aphorism, it just turned out that way. Clark, who at first did not succeed as a photography student, tried again and turned her work around to the point where she recently won a prestigious Music Center Spotlight Award, an annual honor given out to outstanding students in the arts. The winning shot by John Burroughs High School senior was of a nude woman standing behind a cello that covered her body.

Jacqui Brown Peter Diaz attends Community Day School in Burbank -- a small, drab, unassuming building that is hardly noticeable as you drive down San Fernando Road. This 17-year-old student doesn't mind so much because not only is he able to finish high school, he's got an ear to bend when he's not studying. Peter now has a mentor that he considers a friend. In fact, he thinks he's pretty groovy. That is actually the name his mentor goes by, Groovy, though his real name is Rene Ruvalcabo.

Joyce Rudolph Supporters of the Burbank Boys and Girls Club took a virtual trip to the islands for the fifth annual Golden Achievement Award Dinner. The event, held May 12 at the Burbank Airport Hilton, featured a silent auction where guests competed by placing bids on paper for items such as restaurant gift certificates and lunch with Burbank firefighters. Items at the live auction ranged from airfare to the Cayman Islands or Hawaii to gold and diamond bracelets.

Theatergoers who prefer “A Christmas Carol” straight up, with language and redemptive message intact, won't find much holiday cheer in “A Christmas Twist,” SeaGlass Theatre's satiric treatment of the Dickens classic at the Victory Theatre Center in Burbank. Regrettably, even those who relish their Scrooge, Cratchits and ghostly Spirits played for laughs won't find this mash-up of Dickens' “A Christmas Carol” and “Oliver Twist” nearly as jolly as it could have been. Taking a sketchy and broad-stroke approach to both classics, writers Doug Armstrong, Keith Cooper and Maureen Morley have turned Oliver Twist into hapless workhouse orphan Tiny Twist, who is adopted by Bob Cratchit after trying to pick his pocket.

Dick Dodd is one of the most persuasive and recognizable voices in the classic American rock 'n' roll pantheon. Lead singer and drummer of mid-'60s Hollywood rockers the Standells, his declarative, sneering vocals on big-beat staples “Dirty Water,” “Sometimes Good Guys Don't Wear White” and “Riot on the Sunset Strip” established an electrifying new type of hard modern rock. When Dodd takes the stage at Burbank's Joe's Great American Bar on Sunday night, he'll not only bring all of that momentous rebel spirit, but also an impressive trove of show business experience that he'd accrued even before joining the Standells at age 18. The lifelong Redondo Beach resident was a child prodigy whose talents as a dancer and singer landed him in Burbank in mid-1955 as one of the original Mickey Mouse Club's Mouseketeers.
