When you're on your own, you can either be the tiger or the rabbit - the opportunist or the victim. A long time ago, Robert Standlee chose to be the tiger. He would mold life the way he wanted; he would make the most of the fortune that came his way. And if fortune skipped his address as it came calling, Standlee made damn sure he got its attention. “If you see yourself as a victim in any way, you're saying you don't have control. But if you have power over your life, you can forgive people and move on,” he said.

Family members of Bob Hope unveiled a bronze relief sculpture Tuesday at the airport that bears his name. Siblings Linda and Kelly Hope, along with Don Wiegand, the St. Louis-based sculptor who created the bas relief, uncovered the 425-pound sculpture to celebrate the life of comedian Bob Hope. Because her father traveled the world, Linda Hope said it was fitting to display his likeness at the entrance of his namesake airport. Still, his son, Kelly Hope, said the size and scale of the sculpture would likely have made his father pause.

Sculptor Karen Cope is igniting a revival of techniques made famous by the old masters in her new Glendale studio. Her own renaissance began after the 29-year-old Glendale artist graduated in 1999 from Cal State Long Beach, where she majored in 3-D art media. Her class work in woodworking and drawing had been more abstract and conceptual, she said, which didn't train her to realistically capture the human figure. "It didn't give me the technique and accuracy I wanted to strive for," she said.
