Generally speaking, it’s hard to attract advertisers and keep talent when a newspaper owner is a vexatious litigant with a personal minefield as bitter as the Balkans. One down, one to go.

A truly remarkable, bravura performance by Mitchell Thomas, award-winning actor, director, and Chair of the Westmont College Theatre Arts department. If you are an actor, this is a must, it will raise your personal bar. If you are an intellectual it is unforgettable, a once in a lifetime show. if you are looking for The Lion King, better stay home.

On <em>The Fever</em>

Many thoughtful Danes such as Kamilla eventually overcome their initial bafflement at this hybrid culture and warm up to the hospitality. A visit to the Elverhoj Museum might help, or a chat with Danes like Bent Olsen of Aero who began the bakery K liked. I personally admire all the hard work the third and fourth-generation descendants go to in putting on a party for a zillion strangers for free. By the way, the Aalborg Police Band played string instruments in Solvang Park from 10 to 11:30 a.m. through the weekend. The group of 20 began in 1920 and from 1936-1960 organized Christmas concerts for the citizens of Aalborg. They rehearse every Monday evening at Aalborg Police Station. We are glad Kamilla came to visit, sorry she was disappointed in some aspects of the celebration, and hope she will return.

On Sour Grapes in Wine Country?

Good column MK, as always. By the way, regarding Piocho, Happy Canyon Creek drains the massive Los Padres watershed up Happy Canyon east of Alisos Canyon Road on up into the national forest, and Santa Agueda Creek, which runs from Sedgwick to below the bluff off Baseline on the east side of Rancho Estates, funnels most of the water from Figueroa Mountain. Both are jaw-droppingly scary rivers in big water years like 1969, when they prove just how efficient H2O can be at carving stuff. They meet on the south side of the old Rancho Piocho (now owned by Tom Barrack; owned in the 1960's by CSC founder Fletcher Jones, who called it Westerly Stud, owned way back by the Armour meatpacking family from Chicago, hence Armour Ranch Road) pretty close to the property Ellen De Generes had for a while, and together tumble into the SY river at Hwy 154 shortly thereafter.
