This festival will make people aware of what will be happening in the future.

The day before the debut of his new show, "The Job," Denis Leary is either not too excited or making a point of appearing not too excited.

Darren Angel takes a swipe at the biggest high school golf tournament of the year. . . . The set-up was great. The follow-through was not. Given a chance to shred friendly Bernardo Heights Country Club on Wednesday, a course tailor-made for those with length off the tee, the big bopper from Granada Hills High came up short.
