Like death and taxes, June gloom is a certainty of life -- at least in Southern California. And although the marine layer has been doing its usual thing, Los Angeles-based dancer-choreographer Loretta Livingston hopes Friday night will be clear. That's because her new site-specific piece, "June Moon (Dressed in White)," will be performed outside the Japanese American Cultural and Community Center in downtown L.A.

It was a big day for anniversaries at Los Angeles police headquarters Tuesday. And the biggest honor belonged to robbery Det. Jack Giroud, who joined the LAPD 44 years ago, when Norris Poulsen was mayor and the city was a little more than half its current size. On hand to congratulate Giroud was wife Dixie, who marked her 24th anniversary with the Los Angeles Police Protective League, and Police Chief Bernard C. Parks, who said Feb. 1 was his 35th anniversary with the department.

It is impossible to tell looking up from the street, but one of the twin Trillium office towers in Woodland Hills' Warner Center leans about five inches to one side. The Northridge earthquake shook the 17-story steel-frame building out of plumb, and several weeks of work last spring failed to straighten it. "It won't go back," said manager Robert Benton. Unnerved by the flaw, some tenants hired their own structural engineer and temporarily moved out.

Nine-year-old Juan Carlos Osorio considers Christopher Columbus a hero for "discovering America" and displaying great courage. "If it was true the world was square, he would have died. He would have fallen off the ocean and into the sky," the fourth-grader said. On the other hand, he also knows that the famous explorer took American Indians as slaves and that they contracted devastating diseases from the crews of Columbus' ships.

The first U.S. military men to land on the Japanese mainland at the end of World War II were 5,000 lightly armed paratroopers of the 11th Airborne Division, wracked with worries about a possible ambush by die-hard Japanese soldiers and civilians. "Everybody was scared to death," said Len Wallach of West Hills, then an 18-year-old buck private and now a retired Army colonel.

Life was just returning to normal in Little Saigon, and now a series of new conflicts is looming that threatens to further divide the Vietnamese community and put it at odds with other residents of Westminster as well. While some say the friction creates the opportunity for a new dialogue and understanding between Vietnamese and the larger community, others fear a confrontation Friday, when thousands are expected to flood the city for events commemorating the fall of Saigon.

"From Slowtime to Showtime." That's not the motto of television's Showtime network, but executives at the pay-cable channel can recall a few years when prominent agents and producers would joke about Showtime's pace when it came to putting original movies and programming on the fast track.

He's a cheeky little fellow with goofy eyes and a decidedly saucy way of summing up the world. He sticks his nose into everything. He's fond of very bad puns. And folks here are just gaga over him. The Weatherbird, a cartoon figure with a penchant for sass, celebrated his 100th birthday this week, making him the longest-running daily cartoon in American journalism. He's anchored the front page of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch since Feb. 11, 1901.

The distance between Northridge and Memphis can be calculated in measures other than miles. But to the crowd that marked Saturday's 20th anniversary of Elvis Presley's death by flocking to a quiet San Fernando Valley street to see a copy of the singer's Graceland mansion, such details are beside the point. "I've admired Elvis all my life," said Mary Tribble, 49, of Granada Hills. "It's nice to have something around here so we can remember him."

Luke Kruytbosch, the former Hollywood Park announcer who made his debut at Churchill Downs last week, was worried. On Saturday, he'll be calling his first Kentucky Derby, and there are a couple of horses with tricky names in the field. "We've got General Challenge and Excellent Meeting," Kruytbosch said. "They're both sired by General Meeting. If there's one mistake I don't want to make Saturday, I don't want to call either one of them General Meeting."
