GLENDALE — Just as motorists were getting used to paying less than $2 at the gas pump, prices have begun creeping up. The price of regular gas has increased a penny per day since last week and, in some areas of Burbank and Glendale, gas prices have hit the $2 mark, said Marie Montgomery, an Automobile Club of Southern California spokeswoman. Gas prices in Burbank and Glendale ranged from $1.84 to $2 Thursday and are likely to go up, she said. The average price of regular gas throughout the state is $1.93, which is up from $1.79 last month, she said.

Increases at the pump not about lack of oil I was driving the other day and noticed how gas prices have gone up a dollar. I could remember when gas prices were $1.10 for Supreme gasoline. Gas nowadays is too expensive. I believe it is close to $4 and that's about $2.75 away from minimum wage salaries. As prices have risen to this benchmark, so has the number of complaints and demands for an explanation. Predictably, gasoline has become part of the presidential campaign, with some Democratic senators calling on President Bush to release oil from the nation's Strategic Petroleum Reserve.

Rudy Droguett has risked his life for the love of his art. The artist, who is in his 70s, has traveled to Africa twice to take pictures of wild animals, which he later uses as subjects in his scratchboard etchings. He's come close to losing his life, he said. During one trip to Kenya, the vehicle he was riding in had a flat tire. There was a lion lying under a tree nearby watching the entourage. Not wanting to miss the opportunity, Droguett got out of the vehicle to take a picture.

With a palette of bright colors, child-like fancies and an artistic wit to boot, Marilyn Malkov Stein is an artist who fashions and creates her own drum, never mind simply marching to it. Having dabbled in watercolors and various other media, Stein has settled on oil and acrylic for casting her — some may think — unusual pieces. Frogs and pigs, figures adorned with multiple heads and limbs, an array of bright hues, craniums with noses and eyes in collision, may not be the typical sort of art one might find.

Light and color are plein-air artist Margot Lennartz's inspirations. The La Crescenta resident uses them in her oil paintings, especially one in which she has captured the brilliant oranges found in California poppies. The piece is on display in her show, "California Style" continuing until June 1 at the Boddy House Gallery in Descanso Gardens. "My favorite in the exhibit is a painting I painted at the poppy reserve in Lancaster in the Mojave Desert," she said. "It's titled 'Desert Magic, Mojave Desert in Bloom.

I 've been feeling like one of those oil-covered sea gulls on a beach in Louisiana. Every morning I get up and take a look at the newspaper. I glance at the headline, usually in dismay, then automatically flip to the bottom of the page to see who died. It's morbid, I know. But it's just habit. And you probably do it too. On Monday it was former Dodgers pitcher Jose Lima's picture at the bottom of the front page. He was only 37 years old, five years younger than me. That's hard to swallow.

A partnership has developed between local artists and Chevy Chase Country Club that offers artists a venue to show their work and also provides artwork for empty walls of the Glendale club. Glendale resident and oil painter Dahl Delu knew there were several local artists in his neighborhood. He also knew how hard it was to find a place to show one’s work. “I noticed the country club’s restaurant, ballroom, bar and lounge have bare walls,” he said. “I asked them about us doing a group show there, and they said yes.” He called seven of his neighbors who are artists, and in three weeks they put together their first show in October.

MAGNOLIA PARK DISTRICT — The warm scent of hot latkes filled the Chabad of Burbank during its menorah-lighting ceremony on Monday, the fourth day of Hanukkah. The fried potato pancakes are representative of one of the many miracles of Hanukkah, said Mendy Wuensch, a Chabad member and Burbank resident. Cooked in oil, latkes recall the discovery of a flask of oil, used ceremonially by Jewish High Priests, in the temple after it was destroyed by the Greeks, he said. As a testament to that discovery, many traditional Hanukkah foods are baked or fried in oil. A 6-foot tall menorah with lighted bulbs stood outside the entrance to the Chabad on Monday, where inside upbeat holiday songs inspired a light and festive mood.
