I love ice skating, especially ice skating shows where all I have to do is watch: triple axels, quadruple toe loops, lay back spins, death drops that leave you shaking your head in admiration. Fortunately for me, I have a companion in my ice dreams, my mother. So when Mother told me that Olympic and World Champion ice skater Michelle Kwan was kicking off the summer series of skating shows at Lake Arrowhead, I was ready to go.

We went in search of snow. It did not seem an unreasonable quest. It was late January, after all, and we looked toward the mountains, where snow is often found. Our two children had made it through the holidays, through all the white-mantled tales and movies and songs, patiently accepting our promises of post-New Year sledding and snow forts. We chose a weekend when those who live in snow country said the odds were pretty dang good.

Ralph Wagner edges his boat around Lake Arrowhead's shallow rim and grimaces. In this privately owned playground of wealthy lowlanders and retirees, hundreds of boat docks are high and dry in the muck. On the north shore's exclusive coves, the lushly landscaped mansions sit far from the water's edge, their forlorn piers ringed by sprouting marsh grass.

A 9-month-old bear cub released into the wild Thursday is the first graduate of the California Black Bear Rehabilitation Program, run out of Wildhaven Ranch in the San Bernardino Mountains. Developed in cooperation with the California Department of Fish and Game, the Wildhaven program is the first bear program in Southern California licensed to rescue orphan cubs and train them so they have a second chance at life in the wild.

They were supposed to play tonight for a league championship, on their field, before a raucous hometown crowd, hoping to end a streak of futility against an opponent that has dominated them in recent years. Instead, members of the Rim of the World High football team will wait until Saturday to play at a stadium a one-hour drive away, hoping that their fans might delay more pressing needs to make the trip. But they are ever so thankful.
