Review: 'Shutter Island'

"Shutter Island" starts working on us with the first musical notes under the Paramount mountain, even before the film starts. They're ominous and doomy. So is the film.

It's hiking season in the SCV

Around here, you have to catch "spring" when you can. The combination of winter rains, warm weather and almost-spring has our hills going green and flowers beginning to pop.

Karen Maleck-Whiteley: Balance in real life — put yourself first

I often have clients who tell me they need help with creating balance in their lives. Many of us have frequent feelings of being out of balance. We may be talented and accomplish many worthwhile things in life, and at the same time spend a good portion of our time feeling overworked, overwhelmed, stretched to the max, and like we get lots done for everyone else, while putting ourselves last.
