Daughters appreciate mom’s gentle spirit, many talents

When Walnut Elementary students Ellie and Julia Carlson are at home they can sometimes hear music winding its way upstairs, the sound of someone "tickling the ivories" downstairs. The player?

Technology sets new curve in archery

Nock the arrow. Pull back. Release. They're the same basic steps that thousands of people that attended camp as kids took during an activity that was always one of the most popular. But those standard "recurve" bows – that straight piece of fiberglass bent when a high-tension cable is attached at either end – have given way to much more sophisticated and accurate equipment that is not at all unlike the guns that they're supposed to replace.

Ex-007 actor spying again in ‘Nov. Man’

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Onetime 007 Pierce Brosnan embraces a darker take on spycraft in Roger Donaldson's "The November Man," playing a former CIA agent whose autumnal nickname acknowledges his tendency to leave few alive when he passes through a town. A familiar string of dark secrets, shifting allegiances and (wo)man-who-knew-too-much pursuit propels the storyline (adapted from one in a series of Bill Granger novels), giving Brosnan the opportunity to prove his cool remains intact, sans tux and gadgets.
