The same destructive process that opened a hole in the Earth's protective ozone layer over Antarctica is operating in the Arctic, the head of Canada's ozone research team said. Dr. Wayne Evans said there was a "crater" of ozone depletion over Scandinavia during the first week of February. The result of a thinner ozone layer is increased penetration of the sun's ultraviolet radiation, leading to increased skin cancer, eye damage and damage to crops.

One doesn't need to be a fan of the vintage TV spy spoof "Get Smart" to enjoy the current Moorpark Melodrama production. Like the rest of the Melodrama's opus, the show, written by Christopher Sergel, is a collection of songs and gags loosely tied together by some semblance of a plot. Generally, the Melodrama takes off on (or from) something already in the public vernacular: a fairy tale, popular book or movie.

All-American small town kids next door work up a dance act and go off to find fame in the big city. While this sounds like an old-time musical movie plot, it is the real life scenario for Mary and David Johnson, a brother and sister dance duo from Fillmore who traveled to Sweden to find fame.

For four months of the year, high school basketball coaches spend a majority of time in gymnasiums either coaching or scouting players. During the season, from November through March, the coaches rarely see their families unless they attend a game. Once the season ends, however, the pace changes dramatically.
