Joyce Rudolph GLENDALE -- Music and dancing inspired by cultures around the world are what make the dinner theater experience a magical one at Beyond the Stars Palace in Glendale. Russian Extreme, a company of magicians, acrobats, singers and dancers from Moscow, takes the audience on a make-believe voyage from their homeland to America, all with lively music, lavish costumes and spell-binding feats. Segments of the 1 1/2 hour show are performed by the principals and chorus dancers interspersed with featured artists.

Joyce Rudolph The competition was stiff during the first Tennis Ball dinner dance. But no one was near a court. Instead, a superb array of silent auction gifts kept guests running back and forth to the bidding sheets during the fundraiser for the Family Service Agency, now known as Families First in Burbank. City Manager Mary Alvord was mistress of ceremonies and welcomed the more than 200 guests to the Oct. 8 event at The Castaway. A steak-and-salmon dinner was served and dance music was provided by the band Orange Colored Sky. Mayor Marsha Ramos presented Kermit Floyd, president of the board of directors, with a Mayor's Commendation for his financial guidance of the agency.

Decision may help local water supply A court decision last week to temporarily lift pumping restrictions to protect salmon migration in the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta could bring more winter storm water to Burbank and Glendale, officials said. U.S. District Judge Oliver Wanger issued a 14-day restraining order last week that lifts delivery cutbacks intended to keep migrating salmon away from pumps pulling water from the south delta. He concluded that the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation had not fully analyzed the pumping permit and its restrictions under the National Environmental Policy Act. Increased pumping would not seriously harm young winter-run salmon migrating from the delta, but reduced deliveries were taking their toll on agricultural and urban water supplies, Wanger wrote.

Bill Scollon I'm the first to admit I'm not passionate about sushi, but there are times I get a yen for it. And while there are several good sushi places in town, I enjoy going to a small, unpretentious restaurant tucked into a strip mall called Sushi Dake. And though it does crack me up that the restaurant is next to a tropical fish store, I can assure you there's no connection. Sitting at the sushi bar gives you a front-row seat to watch the sushi chefs artfully prepare dishes.

Animal Planet. Discovery Channel. Food Network. Three great channels to watch if you are hungry. I have all the respect in the world for animal lovers, vegetarians, vegans or any other form of non- or semi-meat eaters. But I am a carnivore. I love meat, any kind of meat. I salivate when I watch documentaries about salmon runs in the Northwest or albacore migrations off the coast of Mexico. “Deadliest Catch” is not a show about crab fisherman; it is a show about angels on Earth doing God’s work.

Mary met the man she loved on the job. This sentence should raise an important question in your mind. No, not, "Is it really possible to meet people anywhere but the Internet?" but, "What, exactly, is Mary's job if she gets to love a man while on it?" Welcome to the wonderful world of misplaced modifiers, a place where grammar packs more laughs than CBS and ABC primetime combined. For example, do a Google search for "misplaced modifiers" and "funny" and you may learn the following fact: "Nearly 600,000 men get a vasectomy in the United States each year."

There’s a casual little restaurant called Umai Teriyaki that’s fast becoming a favorite of Montrose locals. It’s been open less than a year, and operators Chris and Grace Jung see a steady stream of shoppers, workers, fitness enthusiasts, moms, dads and kids walk through their doors and gobble up their fresh, healthy food. It’s the kind of food you can feel good about eating every day, if you’re so inclined. The place is clean, the prices are decent, and the service is as fast as made-to-order food can be. If I were to open a restaurant, I’d do it the way Chris and Grace have — offer a limited menu of appealing items that you know you prepare well.
