Los Angeles County supervisors Tuesday approved plans to build a $13 million aquatics building at the Castaic Sports Complex.
Dangling at the end of your rope isn't the kind of thing that makes for much fun. This past Sunday, that's exactly how 10 boat guests and I found ourselves, as my boat twisted and pulled against wind and waves, dead in the water, forced-anchored without power a mile offshore from Channel Islands Harbor.
We took our grandson Seth to the Reagan Library yesterday. He was fascinated with the 1/100-scale model of the White House. The docent was explaining to us that all of the rooms had been updated with replicas of the furniture, carpets and wall coverings that President and Mrs. Obama had made.
Bananas aren't just for breakfast or lunch anymore. By grilling this popular fruit, you can add a whole new flavor dimension to a dinner-time recipe and turn a basic dessert into something wow.
Few things can kick-start a day better than the inane prattling of a Steve Lunetta column. OK, nothing beats the rantings of Betty Arenson, but that is a topic for another day. Lunetta delivers again with "The cultural tie that binds us together" (July 12). If we can believe Mr. Lunetta, and I do, invited a young, African exchange student and characterizes her political views as "claptrap." I guess Lunetta's melting pot only goes so far.
Your recent article ("City takes look at libraries," July 14) provided an inaccurate picture of the benefits and costs of county library service, including a grossly inaccurate cost for overhead.
I'd like to thank Assemblyman Cameron Smyth for his July 13 column ("What we've got here is failure to communicate"), which hit the nail on the head.
If you own a business and want to make more money, improve your cash flow, keep your current clients and attract more clients, this column is for you.

Your daily look at late-breaking news, upcoming events and the stories that will be talked about today:
Fifty years ago, President Lyndon B. Johnson delivered his famous "War on Poverty" speech, purposing "to cure it and, above all, to prevent it." Unfortunately, like our other wars in the last half-century, this one has not lived up to its noble ideals.
This letter is in response to the letter of Nancy A. Meister ("Affordable Care Act: A success story," The Signal Jan. 17.)
I believe in Gary Morrison's passion, but not his facts ("Fiddling while climate change damages the Earth" Jan 12 Signal).

We all know that perception often influences our decisions, yet we catch ourselves and become reminded that what we perceive isn't always what's really going on. With the constant barrage of information available in today's 24/7 world, it's important to not get caught up in the day-to-day market volatility and news headlines. That daily hype doesn't always dovetail with what Wells Fargo Advisors top strategists are observing in the financial marketplace.
