Among the thousands of people frantically flapping in the snow in Bismarck in an attempt to set the record for the most snow angels ever made were parents, children, even snowplow drivers. And then there was Pauline Jaeger -- who on her 99th birthday was making her very first angel. More than 8,900 people flapped their arms and legs on the state Capitol grounds in an attempt to reclaim the record, set in 2002 in North Dakota but snatched away about a year ago in Michigan with 3,784 angels.

Old Navy plans to make it snow Saturday in the center courtyard at Hollywood & Highland , 6801 Hollywood Blvd., in Los Angeles. Youngsters and the young at heart will be able to sled down “Mount Old Navy” from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. while a DJ plays tunes. Those too young for sledding will have an area for making snow angels. Starting at 3 p.m., the retailer will give away free fleece scarves (while supplies last). And after the sledding, Old Navy is sponsoring an outdoor showing of “National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation,” with free Starbucks hot chocolate and popcorn, from 5 to 7 p.m. Malibu County Mart also has some special holiday events planned for Saturdays this month.

Every college generation deserves a "Catcher in the Rye" or "A Separate Peace" of its own, and this fine first novel seems a strong contender for the '90s. In Stewart O'Nan's "Snow Angels," 14-year-old Arthur Parkinson tells two distinct stories, never forcing the connection but allowing the lives of the Marchand family and the Parkinsons to merge, separate and rejoin in the small Pennsylvania town where both lived.

THE BIG PICTURE Apatow's indie auteur gets stoned You would only know David Gordon Green's name if you were a hard-core indie film fanatic. Full of lost love and wonderful characters who make bad choices with tragic consequences, his movies are beloved by critics but hardly seen by anyone outside the art-house circuit. Green's most recent film, "Snow Angels," grossed $400,000, a small tick down from his most accessible film, 2003's "All the Real Girls," which earned rave reviews and made $549,000.

SNOW ANGELS by Stewart O'Nan. (Doubleday: $20; 305 pp.) With its simple prose, bleak subject matter, and icy landscapes, Steward O'Nan's first novel, "Snow Angels," shines with a cold, stark light. Set in 1974 in a small Pennsylvania town, "Snow Angels" is actually two stories--the breakup of 15-year-old Arthur Parkinson's family, and the murder of a young woman. Annie is a single mother with a short temper.

Nearly 1,800 people flapped their arms and legs in fresh snow on the Capitol mall in Bismarck, N.D., hoping to create a record for making the most simultaneous snow angels. The event, which quickly degenerated into a huge snowball fight, was organized to promote a new exhibit for the state historical society. Bismarck broke a 108-year-old snowfall record Wednesday, when 5.4 inches fell the first day of spring.

David Gordon Green's fourth feature is somewhat of a departure for a director known for his lyrical depictions of Southern life. Based on a novel by Stewart O'Nan and set in an unidentified northern town in the dead of winter, "Snow Angels" opens with a wink followed by a bang. A high school marching band is fumbling hilariously through a desultory rendition of Peter Gabriel's "Sledgehammer" when a couple of gunshots ring out nearby.

"Dirt" star and executive producer 1. Courteney Cox Arquette, flanked by costars Ryan Eggold, left, and Jeffrey Nordling, got the flashbulbs popping at the second-season premiere of the FX Network show at the ArcLight Theatre in Hollywood on Feb. 28. That is, until 2. Alexandra Breckenridge puckered up to the paparazzi with her own spotlight-stealing moves. Feeling less lovey-dovey toward the media: Cox Arquette's fellow "Friends" alum Matthew Perry, who skipped the red carpet altogether.

After years of cutting his teeth in independent film, David Gordon Green is one of the big boys now. The youthful 32-year-old writer and director, who still happens to wear braces, says he no longer gets carded at bars. But his newfound maturity pales in comparison to the thrill of being invited to host his own three-night film retrospective this week at American Cinematheque's Egyptian Theatre in HollywoodEgyptian Theatre in Hollywood.

The Angels have been victimized by walk-off home runs and walk-off hits, and they even lost a game in 2005 on a walk-off gaffe, when closer Francisco Rodriguez missed a routine throw back from the catcher, allowing Oakland to score the winning run. But this season they have added a new wrinkle to the sudden-death defeat: the walk-off caught stealing.

The picture shows a misshapen ball of snow stuck in a freezer next to a carton of Breyers ice cream. A South Texas man had scooped up the snow from his yard after a freak storm Christmas Eve. Nine days later he posted a photo of the snowball on EBay and, as of Tuesday, the highest bid was $100. The rare storm has inspired at least four other Texans to sell snow online, promoting their frosty treasures with an imagination that's crucial when the product is frozen water.

Thirty tons of snow are forecast to fall today in the balmy Bixby Knolls area of Long Beach. More is on tap in Calabasas and Azusa, where daytime highs could reach the mid-70s under sunny skies. This is holiday season in Los Angeles and, as in chilly New England and the Midwest, children are donning bright-colored mittens and boots to go play in the white stuff. But like so much else in Southern California, this snow is different.
