Dean Anderson: Domestic violence hits home in SCV

When we talk with customers and others regarding the type of wines they enjoy, more often than not we hear the same varietals mentioned. If a customer tells us they like white wine, then Chardonnay is a frequent response. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Zinfandel rule in the red varietals. As wine purveyors, our goal is to guide you through the maze of wines and, more importantly, help you gain confidence in your wine exploration.

"The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard" is a cheerfully, energetically and very vulgar comedy. If you're OK with that, you may be OK with this film, which contains a lot of laughs and has studied Political Correctness only enough to make a list of groups to offend. It takes place after a failing car dealer calls in a hired gun and his team to move goods off the lot over the Fourth of July.

Pope John XXIII launched Vatican II and then some

VATICAN CITY (AP) - On the night of Oct. 11, 1962, Pope John XXIII did something so natural that it's astonishing it was so revolutionary at the time. He came to the window of the Vatican's Apostolic Palace and spoke to thousands of candle-bearing faithful below - not in the arcane, scripted words of pontiffs past but in those of a father and pastor looking out for his flock.
