It is why we’ll be hearing countless stories of the music legend’s last days, and those who knew him personally will share their memories. I don’t…
“Kobe Bean Bryant is an American retired professional basketball player.” So reads the first line of Wikipedia. Being retired hasn’t sunk in yet for basketball fans, and I’m sure, not for Kobe. For now, it feels more like having witnessed him shoot the final tie-breaking shot in Game 7 of the National NBA Championship Game. Bryant went out like a hero in his farewell game, played for a team that he stayed with during his…

Written by Sunday, January 03, 2016
"Find Your Adventure" is the theme of the 127th Rose Parade presented by Honda. Grown out of a unique partnership between the Pasadena Tournament of Roses and the U.S. National Park Service, the parade will celebrate our national parks.

I’m sweating and heading to the library after a brief stint at the Grevillea Art Park Mural for the opening ceremonies. I…
