In 1967 she played "Elaine", Dustin Hoffman's girlfriend in the movie "The Graduate." I remember going to see that movie at the Fox Theater in Pomona. Katherine received an Oscar nomination and Golden Globe for "most promising female newcomer."
In 1969 Catherine played "Etta Place" in "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid" with Robert Redford and Paul Newman. More recently she starred in "The Stepford Wives" and won a Golden Globe for best supporting actress for her performance in "Voyage of the Damned" in 1977.

More American soldiers, both active duty men and women and veterans, died at their own hand than died in combat in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. In 2010, 468 soldiers died in combat, while 468 committed suicide. In 2009, 381 soldiers committed suicide, once again exceeding the number killed in combat.
This is where the Santa Ana River joins the Pacific Ocean and about 12.5 miles from Anaheim Stadium. Not much for surf and the tide was out.

There are several people dressed in costumes of various stars. Elvis was one of the more popular. They don't exactly charge you to have your picture taken with them, but a gratuity is always welcome.
The overhead music and light show featured music from The Doors.

Me and some of the wild life!!!
They even sell camo undies for women!!! LOL. I asked one of the ladies at the booth how we find the woman if she is wearing her product. Without even missing a beat, she told me night vision goggles. She then added that this wasn't here first gun show with this product. I guess so.

When I arrived I found I could give up my Class A license and just renew my Class C or regular driver's license. I didn't figure I would drive commercially anymore so I gave it up. The other reason I gave it up is because when you have a Class A and get a moving citation it's more points against you if you than a Class C.
So I paid my fees and moved to the photo area and took my photo. I then realized that I had to take a written test, or at least one half of the test. I took the test cold and missed one question out of twenty. I didn't know that it was a violation for an adult driver to smoke in his/her car with a juvenile present.

Thousands of people attended Sunday's Christmas Parade.
While there were 100 entries and thousands of participants, one group is getting a lot of the attention. Freedom of and freedom from religion has become a talking point throughout town after an atheist group openly expressed their beliefs during Sundays B/CS Christmas Parade. 18 people made up the Atheist Vuvuzela Marching Band which paraded down Texas Avenue while playing "Jingle Bells" on vuvuzela horns.
The decision to parade though didn't sit well with many of those in attendance. "Wasn't exactly happy about the Christmas Parade this year. I spent many years teaching my children to love and respect other people, the fact that they were children of god, and I don't feel they should be influenced in any other way especially not at a Christmas Parade," said Tina Corgey, who is a lifelong Bryan resident.
"If you have younger children they weren't going to understand, but I have older children, a teenager, 8-year-old, and they were curious and they asked questions, and it was hard for them to believe and understand that there are actually people out there that don't believe in God," Corgey added.
KAMU-FM, a sponsor of the parade, said, "you've heard the phrase, "What would Jesus do?" and so that was something that was mentioned today and the thought that Jesus probably would have wrapped his arms around 'em and welcomed 'em to the event. I hope our community will be big enough to rise above this and do exactly the same thing."
