Paul Andersen, Enjoy! GLENDALE -- Jeffrey Bernstein came to Occidental College from Harvard University in 1997, where he had led the renowned Harvard Glee Club. When he began teaching at Occidental, he had one choir of 27 singers. Today, as director of choral music at the college, he oversees three choirs and 180 singers. He is artistic director of the Occidental-Foothill Master Chorale. "There was a large and healthy choral tradition at Occidental for many, many years," Bernstein said, "in large part due to the leadership of Howard Swan, who, along with Robert Shaw, was one of the most acclaimed choral directors in the United States."

Molly Shore MAGNOLIA PARK -- Gussie Shultz, a volunteer tour guide at the Joslyn Adult Center, is in the mood for some fun and silliness. Shultz, 69, was a financial-aid administrator for Occidental College for 21 years, but is retired. "I'd like to get together with people who just want to have fun, lunch and laughs, nothing serious," she said. When Shultz heard about the Red Hat Society, an organization of women 50 and older who wear red hats and purple outfits with the express purpose of having fun, she showed up at the center's first meeting Monday wearing the royal color and the first red hat she ever owned.

Jeff Tully At this time last year, the idea of competing in the CIF Southern Section Division IA playoffs was the farthest thing from the minds of many involved with the Burbank High boys' basketball program. Last season, the first under Coach Jose Hernandez, the team went 5-20, and didn't win a game in the Foothill League. That was a big improvement from the 2002-03 campaign when Burbank went 0-23. So, with the program's struggles the past few seasons, the Bulldogs have made a remarkable turnaround this season, and that improvement has been rewarded with a postseason berth.
