Mark R. Madler Even though he stood under the cool shade of a tree outside Burbank City Hall, Musa Akdere could still sum up in one adjective his third day visiting Southern California. "It's hot. It's very hot," said Akdere, 18, who is from Essen, Germany. "We are not used to degrees this high." Akdere is finding out everything's super-sized in America. Despite the heat, he's having a great time on his exchange student visit. "It's immense, everything is bigger than in Germany," Akdere said, adding that he is most looking forward to going to the beach.

Mark R. Madler While waiting to talk to a visitor recently, the Rev. Greg Batson and the Rev. Larry Stamper stood together near the pulpit of the First United Methodist Church with Batson holding a large black Bible with a loose back cover. "I wore out that Bible," said Stamper, who left the church as its senior pastor at the end of June after 32 years. He won't need it to lead this Sunday's services, though. Batson, his replacement, will lead his first service at the church Sunday.

I asked Andrew what he and Susanna had named the baby, and he said they named him David. "Uh, does Susanna have any relatives named David?" I asked. "No, tio, we named him after you," he replied.
