Like so many Americans, I can remember exactly where I was when men first walked on the moon. It was July 20, 1969, in the middle of a night still warm from a sultry afternoon in western Pennsylvania. I was not much more than a kid then, and I had hitchhiked from my home in California to visit my elderly grandmother, who lived in a sleepy little mill town on the Allegheny River not far from Pittsburgh. I sat mesmerized on her living room floor in the glow of the television set watching men in bulky suits bounce jauntily along the stark, lunar landscape.

It was 40 years ago this week, on July 20, 1969, that Neil Armstrong said those immortal words: ?One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.? The video from those moon landings may be etched in our collective memory, but the quality of those recordings is poor. In the 1970s and ?80s, NASA, faced with a shortage of tapes, erased about 250,000 of them for reuse. In the process, the original lunar footage was lost. So tapes from CBS News, the National Archives, a video from Australia and footage from a camera pointed at a television monitor are being used by Lowry Digital in Burbank in an unprecedented effort to restore about three hours of footage from that historic moon landing 40 years ago. Lowry Digital, at 2777 N. Ontario St., is owned by Adlabs Films Ltd. Its primary function is to restore and repair old movies and television shows, and enhance new movies and new television shows whose picture quality needs help, said Lowry Digital President Mike Inchalik.

Erin Park MEDIA CITY CENTER -- "No hands, dear. Just your eyeball." So goes the genial but firm direction from Mike Kendall, who promises a view of what astronauts see one hour before they land on the moon -- as long as you don't touch the telescope and tip it out of focus. As a Sidewalk Astronomer of five years, Kendall has been bringing his telescope to bustling corners around Los Angeles to give passersby a glimpse into our solar system. Kendall, who has lived in Burbank for 25 years, said he does it because wants to educate children and introduce them to the wonders of the universe.

When President George H.W. Bush wanted Chinese food, he did not have to travel far from the White House. His favorite restaurant was only a few miles away in a nondescript strip mall. Most restaurant reviewers in Washington, D.C., agreed that the food was OK but nothing you would consider “presidential.” I know a place in Burbank that would make “41” stop the motorcade. On your first glance, Sun Moon Garden does not seem that inviting. It is on San Fernando Boulevard inside a rather ordinary strip mall and across the street from a car wash.

The name Florence Foster Jenkins probably holds little weight among serious opera fans. And who can blame them? Although a success during her 12-year career in the 1930s and ’40s, the attention-starved soprano was unable to carry a note. However, she consistently drew sell-out crowds for her tone-deaf renditions of operatic standards from the likes of Brahms, Mozart and Strauss, among others. Although her performances were viewed as a joke by her fans and peers, Jenkins was thoroughly convinced of her own greatness and approached each recital with poise and dutifulness.

Burbank High School’s 100th senior class went out in style Friday during a graduation ceremony that featured rousing musical performances at the Starlight Bowl. The school’s orchestra and award-winning choir performed sets that stirred excitement among graduates, including one that combined the sounds of “Somethin’s Comin’” from West Side Story and rapper Eminem’s “Lose Yourself.” The musical exhibition showcased just part of the talent that Burbank High’s centennial class brought to the school, said Tessa Register, the senior speaker.
