Katherine Tolford LA CRESCENTA -- Darla Anderson isn't afraid of finding monsters under her bed even though she spent the past four years creating a corporation of them.

The film, which opens Friday, takes place in the fictional factory of Monsters, Inc., which employs teams of monsters in all shapes and sizes to scare children and harness the power from their screams.

Joyce Rudolph BURBANK -- The Colony Theatre Company presents the California premiere of "Incorruptible," a comedy by Michael Hollinger, continuing through Nov. 17 at the Burbank Center Stage. The play is an irreverent farce about a desperately poor French monastery in 1250 and the monks who come up with a sure-fire, if thoroughly unethical, fund-raising scheme. Colony Producing Director Barbara Beckley said the company has formed relationships with literary managers all over the country, and "Incorruptible" was sent to the company in manuscript form along with a recommendation by Des Gallant of Florida Stage after that company produced it. Beckley was astonished after reading it, she said, because it's so rare to find a play that good that hasn't already received a major New York production or at least been published.

Gary Durrett Good morning kids. It was yet another light news week, so the bile-o-meter barely moved the needle. But I found a few nuggets hiding in the bottom of the bag, so read along with me, and try not to move your lips. So, I see that some residents of La Crescenta are concerned that the recent posting of signs warning of mountain lions will cause panic and lower property values. Let me clue you in on something: With the recent spate of shootings, murders and assorted muggings, the usual compliment of brain-dead motorists adrift in a cigarette and cell-phone anarchic fog and developers preparing to pave the hillsides and move Glendale's infrastructure toward the density of Tokyo's, the mountain lion isn't the animal lowering property values in this corner of the world.

Enjoyed parts Glendale resident Megan A. Kelly, 12, will be a seventh-grader at Rosemont Middle School in the fall. I enjoyed parts of "Chicken Run," even though I'm not a fan of claymation. Some of the jokes were funny, but it was the average story of good prevailing over evil. In this case, the good part was the chickens escaping the evil Tweedy's farm. I have to warn you, it's a very old-fashioned chicken farm. You stop laying eggs and it's curtains for you. If you decide to see it, don't leave the theater before the credits end, they have a special ending that you won't want to miss.
