Drivers should not be taken in by road signs reading that the detours on Glenneyre Street will end on May 9 or even by the end of May. A significant glitch in the rehabilitation of the Bluebird Canyon Pump Station at the intersection of Catalina, Glenneyre and Calliope streets has forced the extension of the detour by almost a month. The new date by which the street is expected to open is June 23, said David Shissler, director of Water Quality. Glenneyre is closed from the intersection to Bluebird Canyon Drive and the closure so far has not been intermittent, as posted.

Martha Marino Part 5: Bailing on the Marne Canal Day 11-15: Luneville and Nancy Sometimes travel plans just don't turn out the way you expect. That's what happened on my Marne Canal trip. After I left Luzelbourg, the towpath had so many ruts, weeds and barriers that cycling became more work than pleasure. Finally, I left the canal and followed the quiet, rural roads marked on my Michelin map with thin, white lines. If the hills were gentle and I didn't get lost, I didn't mind zigzagging through the countryside.

The return of one of the city’s chronic homeless men after months in a detox program illustrates how difficult it is to change the ways of people accustomed to living on the streets. “Cowboy,” as this man is known, is once again showing up on the police blotter — but not, so far, as having been hauled off to the drunk tank, as was the case multiple times a week not so long ago. In one incident, passersby were complaining he was asking for cigarettes, and in another he was apparently being beaten up. (But the log went on to state he was OK.)

Evan Marmol "Uptown Girls" follows the banal formula of making indigence appear to be edifying and merely a simple detour to happiness and success. The exquisite Brittany Murphy stars as Molly Gunn, a girl born with a silver spoon in her mouth that is summarily ripped out when she is bilked by her manager for all of her worldly possessions. Robbed of the trapping of opulence she is forced to venture into the working world for survival. This querulous brat becomes the nanny for Ray (Dakota Fanning)

Barbara Diamond The Laguna Canyon Conservancy challenged Councilman Wayne Baglin to set the record straight on city projects and policies termed "Unfinished Business." Baglin responded Monday night at the conservancy's March dinner meeting at Tivoli Terrace, prefacing his talk with a caveat: "Anything I say is my opinion and I can't say that I will shed all the sunlight possible on the issues." On the top of his list of unfinished business: South Laguna's perception of itself as a stepchild, years after it requested annexation by Laguna Beach.
