Newport Beach artist Scott Kennedy began sailing at 8 and painting at 13. By the time he was 21, he had fused the hobbies into an itinerant life style that would take him to Europe. There he spent 10 years living aboard an old wooden sailboat and sketching his way through the Baltic Sea, the North Sea and the inland canals. "We had said we'd be back in six months," Kennedy says, recalling how he and his wife, Karen, as newlyweds in 1973, purchased an old sailboat in Denmark to live aboard.

Fame may be fleeing, but the kids in "Fame High" will stay with you. Directed, photographed and co-edited by Scott Hamilton Kennedy, "Fame High" covers a year and change in the life of the Los Angeles County High School for the Arts, familiarly known as LACHSA, one of the top performing arts schools in the country. Though this scenario may sound familiar, courtesy of the 1980 and 2009 versions of "Fame" and TV shows such as "Glee," the film itself is not. Try as they might, fictional kids can't compete with the real thing, don't compel us like these earnest, hopeful and winning young people, bound and determined to devote themselves to their art. PHOTOS: Hollywood backlot moments It's not only this idealism that makes the subjects of "Fame High" so compelling, it's also their honesty, their willingness to open a window into their lives at that pivotal moment when they're taking their first tentative steps toward becoming their own person personally and professionally.

A Los Angeles police officer testified Thursday that he initially lied to superiors to shield partner Lance L. Braun from brutality allegations but later felt compelled to break an unwritten code of silence and tell the truth. Officer Scott Kennedy's admissions came during a preliminary hearing for Braun, a 20-year veteran of the force who retired days before the district attorney's office accused him of excessive force in the beating of two transients on a Pacoima street corner last August.

Documentary maker Scott Hamilton Kennedy has earned critics' paeans and an Oscar nomination by training his camera on two intensely local, only-in-L.A. subjects: a play at a Compton high school and the rise and fall of a South Los Angeles community garden. But for Kennedy, the roots of these distinctly L.A. stories go back to the U.S. heartland and his youth.

A Los Angeles police officer who was on patrol with a fellow officer accused of beating two people on a Pacoima street corner last year said Monday he had once lied about the incident out of loyalty to his police "family."

The City Council voted unanimously to spend $250,000 to boost the wages of those who provide child care for agencies under contract with the city. "This will have a dramatic impact on the quality of child care," Councilman Scott Kennedy said. Santa Cruz passed a living wage law in October, requiring that workers with city contractors be paid $11 an hour, or $12 an hour if the position does not offer benefits.

A local landmark may be torn down so the city can realize a decades-old dream of creating an upscale hotel and conference center on the waterfront. City officials and Santa Cruz Coast Hotel owners are looking at the possibility of replacing the aging, 10-story Coast Hotel on West Cliff Drive with a 225- to 275-room hotel with conference and banquet rooms, restaurants and other guest amenities. The Coast Hotel may be more familiar to some as the Dream Inn.
