December 7, 2013 | By Martin Tsai, Perhaps "Live at the Foxes Den" was never intended for Broadway, but actor Jackson Rathbone brings an unmistakably musical-theater quality to the proceedings
"Live at the Foxes Den" comes off like some long-unproduced Broadway musical finally dusted off when someone raised enough money to mount it as a film production instead. It seems unintentionally passé, and not only because the eponymous establishment is smoker-friendly and houses a rotary phone. The film's compassion for the upper class bearing such worldly burdens as nepotism and estate money seems out of touch post-recession. Jackson Rathbone of "The Twilight Saga" stars as Bobby Kelly, a young attorney coasting at work thanks to his engagement to the daughter of the firm's managing partner.

As economic pressures grind away at American families, one presidential candidate offers an unusual view on what ails the country: It is not simply a failure of fiscal policy, he says, but a blindness to the nation's true wealth. The gross national product is a misleading barometer, he says, because it "does not allow for the health of our children, the quality of their education or the joy of their play. It does not include the beauty of our poetry or the strength of our marriages."

OPINION
January 12, 1992
My wife and I were among the million or so who attended the 1992 Rose Parade, which was absolutely fantastic. The Rose Parade provides a beautiful start of the New Year for millions of Americans across our country and to many people throughout the rest of the world. I think we all owe a great deal of gratitude to the men and women of the Tournament of Roses who continue this beautiful American tradition. One rarely comes across such dedication, enthusiasm, courtesy and helpfulness that the people in white (the Tournament of Roses volunteers)

Every decent human being in the Huntington Beach High School district should be outraged at the ludicrous action taken against Jim Harris, Ocean View High School basketball coach. If the school board represents the well being of the students and is in quest of excellence in our high schools, they will intervene and correct this grave injustice. Jim is guilty of being totally devoted to young people. He likes basketball, but he loves the kids. They become family to him. He is the ideal role model that every parent wants his child to have.
OPINION
November 14, 1993
It's hard for me to believe that I had to vote on public safety (Nov. 2). I think this reflects that our political Establishment has lost its sense of priorities and what government's prime purpose is. Perhaps we should have been voting on an initiative that defines the priorities for how our tax dollars are spent. At the top of my priority list is public safety. Other services would be prioritized. If funds were not available for lower priority items (i.e., street cleaning, recreation, libraries, etc.)

The Return Stories Roberto Bolaño Translated from the Spanish by Chris Andrews New Directions: 208 pp., $23.95 Roberto Bolaño haunts his English-speaking readership almost twice yearly. Translations of at least 10 books have appeared since his death of liver failure at age 50 in 2003. Many carry dust-jacket claims of being essential to the Bolaño canon — either as the weighty summa of his accomplishment ("2666") or as a skeleton key that opens up the rest of his works ("Nazi Literature in the Americas")

Re "Live from Irvine: El Toro Airport vs. Great Park," July 18: While many articles get high marks, this one falls short. While the anti-airport view got its licks in, the other side went wanting in the article. Didn't any points get your attention for the other side? Maybe that an airport gives our children a likely income source and boost to the economy here in Orange County, against a park which gives us another expense for all time? Or maybe that a park is the euphemism for "not in my backyard" from South County residents?

A former worker at the San Onofre nuclear power plant was found with more than 250 weapons, including an illegal rocket launcher, when arrested for allegedly threatening his ex-colleagues, apparently in anger over being fired. While serving an arrest warrant for David L. Reza on Tuesday evening, Orange County sheriff's deputies discovered the weapons--including antique rifles and empty hand grenades--as well as 5,000 rounds of ammunition at his Laguna Niguel home and a storage locker he rented.

Cesar Chavez, the man who became the face of disenfranchised California farmworkers, was many things: courageous, controversial, quietly charismatic, politically astute, singular in his focus. "Cesar Chavez" the movie, starring Michael Peña as the Mexican American activist and America Ferrera as his wife, Helen, could use more of those qualities. Chavez was loved, hated and feared, at times by friend and foe alike, for his impassioned fight to unionize immigrant pickers and pruners beginning in the late 1960s.

A fired worker at the San Onofre nuclear power plant who has a history of disputes with his bosses has been arrested for allegedly threatening to draw on his cache of weapons to attack former co-workers at the facility. When they arrested David L. Reza, 44, on Tuesday evening, Orange County sheriff's deputies uncovered more than 250 weapons--including antique rifles and empty hand grenades--as well as 5,000 rounds of ammunition at his Laguna Niguel home and a storage locker he rented.
