YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK is certainly scenic -- but it's also a little stinky. Ryan and Nicole Yamashiro had their hands to their faces to block the sulfur smell when their dad, Michael, took this picture with his Sony CyberShot.

It was long time in the works, but Walnut High School finally has a performing arts center. Opened last week, the 459-seat theater features a 2,605-square-foot hardwood stage, an orchestra pit and a drama classroom. The $4.8-million project was the last to be built with a $50-million local bond measure approved by voters in 1991, said Principal Ken Gunn. The theater is set into what was an empty hillside and has been widely anticipated by students and parents, he said.
