"It will be like a conversation, a creative exchange of ideas," said Latin jazz artist Justo Almario, who performs today with Marcos Ariel at the San Juan Capistrano Regional Library. "Just piano and woodwinds. Very intimate." The concert by Almario, who is from Colombia, and Ariel, from Brazil, will give Orange County Latin jazz enthusiasts a taste of South American rhythms that the artists say are not commonly heard in the United States. "It's not the usual club setting," said Ariel.

When Jose Aponte's son Pablo, 9, asked to learn more about his Puerto Rican and Indian roots, Aponte read books about both cultures to the boy--in Spanish. "You can be the most educated people in the world, but if you don't have a book, you can't answer questions," said Aponte, who is one of a few bilingual librarians in the county. "A library can fill the cultural, educational and informational needs of its community."

Fortune smiled on the Kennedy High School boys' soccer team Wednesday. By virtue of an unexpected--if not questionable--goal, the Fighting Irish remained in control of their destiny in the Garden Grove League. True, Kennedy could only manage a 1-1 tie at Pacifica, but in this case, a tie was as good as a victory. The Fighting Irish (10-3-4, 6-0-2 in league play) need only to win their remaining four games for the league title.
