This weekend's opening of “The Dark Knight Rises” was tragically marred early Friday by a shooting in an Aurora, Colo., movie theater in which a gunman killed at least 12 people and wounded 59 others. In response to the tragedy, a gala “Dark Knight” movie premiere scheduled in Paris was canceled, and the campaigns for the White House were put on hold for a day of mourning. President Obama ordered flags outside all public buildings to be lowered to half-staff and said, “There are going to be other days for politics; this I think is a day for prayer and reflection.” Locally, Burbank, Glendale and Pasadena public safety officials stepped up security measures at area theaters to protect the throngs of fans that will inevitably continue to fill movie theaters.Warner Bros.

Paris, a boxer-terrier mix, has a permanent home at last. She came to the Glendale Humane Society via the Los Angeles City Shelter system about four years ago, and a foster family took her in for about six months, said Alyce Russell, executive director of the Glendale Humane Society. Her foster family’s frequent travels to Canada made it difficult to find someone to care for her while they were gone, so she was returned to the society. “We took her back into the shelter and noticed some odd lumps under her skin,” Russell said.

Cities are literally made up of bricks and mortar. The pulse and heart of the city are its residents and visitors. The mix of people and architecture sometimes come together to create something unique. "Paris, Je T'aime" is a cinematic love letter to one of these cities, Paris, France, the city of love. The concept behind "Paris, Je T'aime" is that 18 international film directors were to make a short film about love, and Paris, set in and about the city. Each short runs approximately five minutes and is set in a different Parisian neighborhood.

OK. That was fun. Just celebrating its one-year anniversary in Glendale, the Korean-owned Paris Baguette is a self-serve purveyor of joy. Now that I’m a grown-up, I don’t enjoy being a kid in a candy store so much as being a parent in a pastry shop! When we walked in, we each grabbed a square tray and a set of tongs. I told my kids to grab just about anything that they thought sounded good to sample and share with family that evening. We sampled sweet and savory, standard and exotic, pastry and tea cakes and bread.

Jeff Tully BURBANK -- In track and field, the steeplechase is a storied event that requires a unique combination of running and leaping skills. In short, the event is a distance race with barriers and water hazards. However, the combination of skill and endurance it requires to be successful in the steeplechase is much more complicated. Legend has it the steeplechase began in Oxford, England around 1850 when some young Englishmen got together to settle a bet on the results of a horse race.

Giving credit to Muir School teachers Muir Middle School's "Around the World" Festival ("Festival reflects year's study," May 27) was organized by an amazing group of enthusiastic and dedicated seventh-grade teachers led by Heidi Sasaki and Lynn Rothacher. The event is paid for by annual fundraising efforts of the parents and teachers of the Muir PTA with Jan Levitt being the President from 2004 to 2006. As the newly elected PTA President (2006-'07) I was merely an observer of the incredible day put together by the efforts of others.
