Okinawan singer Shoukichi Kina was impressive in his L.A. debut at downtown's California Plaza on Friday night, moving a crowd largely unfamiliar with his music from curious appreciation to an enthusiastic embrace by the end of his 90-minute set. Kina, whose pioneering sound blends traditional folk material with Western elements and electric instruments, stressed the traditional side early.

The boy, Robert Anthony Garcia, was underwater for three or four minutes before a neighbor dived into the pool and recovered the boy, said father Philip R. Garcia. The deputy gave the boy CPR.

Re "Quiet Waters," Nov. 6. Surprise! Surprise! It's November and no one is using the Hansen Dam so-called "swimming lake," which for the most part is only a huge wading pool. Yes, as could easily have been predicted, it will sit idle for eight months of the year. As to the tiny "boating lake," saying it is a replacement for the old lake is a monumental farce. This project is one of the most flagrant wastes of our tax money we have ever seen. It should be dubbed "Berman's Folly."

A family of tigers rescued from starvation and abuse at an Irish farm in December were released Wednesday to their new home--a 10,000-square-foot secured area, complete with a wading pool, within the confines of the Wildlife Waystation. "Today, they left the quarantine area looking fat and sassy and beautiful and healthy, and moved into a wonderful, naturalistic enclosure," said Martine Colette, the facility's founder.

Wearing red bandannas and cowboy boots, more than 400 schoolchildren on Thursday celebrated the good, the bad and the ugly aspects of life in the Old West. Designed to excite children about history by providing interesting educational activities, Fay Fryberger Elementary School's fourth annual Western Day offered a bonanza of events such as horseback rides and panning for bits of gold-colored rock.
"Maisy" fans, take note: The sweet little mouse in the red T-shirt now has her own TV show. Nickelodeon's new Nick Jr. preschooler series, "Maisy," is a delightfully rendered animated version of the pop-up, flap and tab-pull books so dear to the hearts of countless pint-size fans and their parents.

Planning Commissioner Edie Warwick has been removed from her position by the City Council for overstepping her authority as a city official and because charges have been filed against her in the case of a missing dog. Before the unanimous vote Monday, Councilwoman Virginia Rhodes said complaints from other city officials and a captain in the Lennox sheriff's station about Warwick's behavior prompted her to call for Warwick's removal.

The sweetest principal of the day is Ron Jones. At least that was his description after being decorated like a sundae Friday by 141 Mountain View Elementary School students. The event was the students' reward for abstaining from watching TV for an entire week. The idea to turn Jones into a human sundae was suggested by first-grade teacher Teresa de Croupet. "I saw the idea on an Internet Web site," De Croupet said, "and I thought the children might need a special motivator."

There will be a ground-breaking ceremony in the Arroyo Seco this afternoon for a swimming facility that will do some ground breaking of its own. The very name of the facility--the Rosebowl Aquatics Center--begins the breakdown of images. For decades, Rose Bowl has meant football, not swimming. And the plan for the Rosebowl Aquatics Center shows side-by-side Olympic-sized pools, designed for international competition in both swimming and diving. There will also be a warm wading pool.
