Time and again, Weise heard the same story: The dog was their best friend, a part of their family. But without the means to care for their animals, many were forced to give them up. “Such a simple thing as a dog license could keep that pet with that person,” said Weise, adding that she often…

    Growing up in one of D.C.’s toughest neighborhoods, Darryl Washington was stunned to reach the White House. He had traveled a long road from notorious Southeast Washington.

So, when Washington was honored in America’s most famous residence four years ago, the occasion was more than just an urban youth reaching hallowed ground.

    27 Jul 2015 | 7:29 pm
      The stage is set, with three guitars built by Linda Manzer With three acoustic guitars is his only artillery Cockburn launched a powerfully emotive barrage of poetic lyrics. His unique and powerful guitar picking talent was evident not only in the several instrumental numbers but throughout the evening. His recent songwriting efforts have been sparse due to the three year sabbatical writing his acclaimed autobiography Rumours of Glory. But toward the end of the evening he did perform a new “gospel song that I didn’t seek” called “Jesus Train.” One of the…

    Live comedy is generally found in city centers, but having it available in a bucolic setting like Solana Beach is a real treat. On various Tuesday nights (see schedule at link below) Mark Christopher Lawrence gathers three or four comedians to deliver live standup. Lawrence recently had three comedians and a cleverly humorous musician. Opener Rob Deez used his spare guitar stylings to reveal insights about his hospital job. The infectious nature of his humor was…contagious. Maria Herman brought her Aussie sensibility to bear on modern topics, and was followed by Trenton Davis. It is evident…

    Cole Porter is one of the supreme masters of innuendo, his canon is unmatched in the rich and varied American Songbook. He arguably reached the apogee of his prowess in the words and music for “Kiss Me, Kate.” Coupled with the remarkable book by Sam and Bella Spewack, the result is a gem musical that resonates with each interpretation.

    New Orleans. Even its original name Vieux Carré (“Old Square”) conjures myriad impressions. It is truly the westernmost European city and the northernmost Caribbean city, making it the most unique city in America. Only Montreal rivals it. (The Canadian city is invariably cleaner and better organized). Just about geometrically in the exact center of the French Quarter is the Bourbon Orleans Hotel. A locally owned treasure, we enjoyed its charm and service for several days. Like much of New Orleans, the hotel has a colorful past. The building was once the home of Théâtre…

The secondary reason was that, one week earlier, the club had finally completed the signing of 30-year-old Cuban infielder Hector Olivera for $62.5 million to be the third -- or second -- baseman in the very near future.

Not only are they 4 1/2 games back for an AL Wild Card spot, but they would have to jump over five teams to get into the postseason that way. And these guys are actually serious about being a player in the Cole Hamels sweepstakes? Dang right.

    With All-Star weekend finished, the WNBA turns its attention to the second half of the season. The sprint to the playoffs and the WNBA championship will most likely hinge on which team can stay the healthiest. Minnesota is leading the Western Conference right now, but the Lynx are without two of their three All-Stars as Lindsay Whalen and Seimone Augustus are sidelined with injuries. Whalen, who hurt her eye last week, should be back soon. Augustus is out until mid-August while recovering from arthroscopic knee surgery. “I like where we are and I like our mindset, how we’ve…

    22 Jul 2015 | 10:29 am
    In an automobile crash, a typical personal injury that could take place is whiplash. This happens when a head hurls backward, then forward, like what happens in a jarring and jolting automobile accident. Physicians refer to this as “hyperextension” from getting jerked forward, or a “hyperflexion”, getting jerked backwards. Getting tossed around in this manner, will result in major personal injuries to a neck and upper body, such as the upper rhomboids and trapezium. The harm received from whiplash might consist of intervertebral joint injury, disc problems, damages to the tendons, and…
