Salvador Santana got his first taste of the family business as a 4-year-old, when his father, guitar hero Carlos Santana, put him behind a drum kit to bash out some beats. He's been making music ever since, now as a keyboardist and bandleader mingling pop, jazz and Latin sounds with a hip-hop sensibility. "Music has always been there in my life," said Santana, 26, sitting behind a vintage Fender Rhodes keyboard at a downtown studio. "At the same time, both my Mom and Dad have always encouraged me to be myself."

In his official bio, keyboardist Salvador Santana's family history first mentions his maternal grandfather, blues pioneer Saunders King, then his paternal grandfather, mariachi violinist Jose Santana. Oh, and by the way, his dad is rock legend Carlos Santana. The billing order suggests Salvador's insistence on defining his own identity as a musician and his own sound as leader of the Salvador Santana Band.

President Bush and Sen. John F. Kerry weren't the only ones doing their darndest Thursday night to swing voters to their sides. As far across the country from Coral Gables, Fla., as you can get, Carlos Santana did a bit of presidential stumping of his own. "People are spending a lot of money on 'Dumb and Dumber' and 'Liar, Liar,' which is like Bush and Kerry," the 57-year-old guitar hero said with a wry smile between songs at his Greek Theatre concert.

It was tough to determine which were more intense Thursday, the Grant-Reseda boys' soccer match or the bizarre events after it ended. The final score of the Valley Pac-8 Conference match was 1-1, with Reseda's Alex Acevado scoring in the 73rd minute to salvage the tie. It was a rough-and-tumble afternoon, Reseda (7-5-2, 7-3-2 in conference play) getting hit with four yellow cards, the host Lancers (10-3-5, 5-2-5) with three. And with one minute left, a player from each team drew a red card.

During the summer, ski resort towns don't close up shop. In fact, the warm-weather action can be more frenetic than the winter variety, what with golf, mountain biking, river rafting, hiking and more. Nowadays, there's more to your favorite ski resort in summer than honing your golf swing or getting wet in a roaring river. Most resort towns also host a variety of summer cultural events, as varied as gallery openings, dance festivals and operas.
