Gina Chappin, who has run media operations for the Rose Bowl game since 2007, on Monday was named senior director of communications and brand management for the new College Football Playoff. Chappin will remain with the Rose Bowl through next season as it celebrates its 100th-game anniversary and also hosts the last national title game in the Bowl Championship Series.

Weather conditions in June make it a big month for radio-controlled craft. And glider flying can be as much fun for spectators as it is for participants; there are often numerous planes in flight simultaneously, creating a colorful, impromptu air show.
