Tightened security didn't keep a delegation of Las Vegas showgirls, circus performers and comedian Carrot Top from landing at the Million Air Terminal at the Bob Hope Airport on Thursday. "The biggest day of airport security this year and this is what gets to come through!" quipped the comedian, escorted by four sequined, bikini-clad dancers and two masked acrobats turning summersaults on the tarmac. The display of glitz ushered in a first-of-its-kind concierge station, where Las Vegas-bound travelers can make restaurant reservations, book show tickets and schedule other activities before they leave the airport, said Howard Lefkowitz, president of Vegas.

I don't often fly, but within the past week I have flown into Phoenix, Reno and Las Vegas airports, all of which were attractive, neat and clean from the arrival perspective. As we began our descent into Bob Hope, I was happy to be home, but as we taxied toward our gate I was shocked and embarrassed at how old and decrepit my beloved airport looks. Imagine what passengers must think, some here for the first time. The stairs to alight from the plane did nothing at all for the handicapped.

As it is with just about any fight inside the confines of the Ultimate Fighting Championship's octagon, Jared Papazian's flyweight bout against Tim Elliott features its share of story lines, subplots and stipulations. There's also some smack talk and hype. It's Papazian's 125-pound debut and Elliott's chance to rebound after a loss to a world-ranked contender. And a victory by Papazian, which would be his first in the UFC, would likely make him an immediate player in the 125-pound division.

You'd expect Burbank to beat out Las Vegas in terms of having higher standards of living, lower crime rates or being more family friendly. But having a more robust nightlife? According to the event-listing website, Eventful, Burbank beat out the Sin City for the No. 1 spot in “The Scene” category, that is, the city with the most nightlife events. Of course, keep in mind that cities were ranked by listed events per capita. Also, making the “Most Eventful Cities Ranking” index was Pasadena, which came in at No. 4 in the categories for cities with populations under 150,000 people and for most “on campus” events.

Please don?t tell my mom I told you this. But when I was 18 and she was out of town for the weekend, I threw the mother of all parties at our house. Hundreds of kids converged upon our sleepy neighborhood. From one car Van Halen screamed, from another Flock of Seagulls, and yet another Wham! And inside, Tears for Fears. Shout, shout, let it all out! We raged. The party was so big I started charging people to get in. In my high-top Reeboks, acid-washed jeans and Kajagoogoo hair, I was the host with the most.

Sara Golden met Rosemarie Cross 27 years ago when they worked at the Beverly Hills Hotel in the early 1980s.

But life has been challenging for the family, Golden said. First they lost their San Fernando Valley home due to the medical bills incurred after Mason was born with a cleft lip and palate.
