The cause of the sea's excessive (and occasionally toxic) algal growth is the fertilizer contained in agricultural runoff. Fortunately, farmers are working responsibly with the Regional Water Quality Control Board to develop a program of TMDLs (total maximum daily loads)

"I wrote to 130 universities," the younger Peter Janov said, "It cost about $500 just to send all the letters. Some coaches wrote back and said they don't take international players. Some didn't write back at all.

In their movies, when Mickey and Judy wanted to put on a show, you knew that they'd do a great job, and not just because they were Mickey and Judy. They willed it to happen. They believed. Richard Wesley's new play, "The Siddons Club," at Golden West College's Studio West Theatre, is about a group of young women in the New York theater scene who fight to keep open their boarding house, which is named after 18th century actress Sarah Siddons.

As a student at Golden West College in 1973, Scott Steidinger was charged with designing an outdoor amphitheater. At the time, he was fulfilling the vision of then-college president Dudley Boyce. Now, 25 years later, Steidinger is again overseeing designs for a new amphitheater. Boyce, who presided over a college that was less than 10 years old and still under construction, wanted an amphitheater like the one on the grounds of his alma mater, Stanford University.
