    The youth members of the City’s Community of Character Committee are sponsoring a Casino Night for other young people next week.  Does it seem for a moment there is a paradox between vice and virtue in that announcement?

    Perhaps the ends justify the means, however, since the event is a fundraiser for the Cancer Society’s Relay for Life charity.

   The casino event is geared toward eighth graders and older and will include poker, blackjack, bunco and other popular games along with prizes, snacks and much more. Adults are welcome. Admission is $10 and includes playing chips and snacks.  The fun happens May 29 from 6:30 to 10 pm.

    The gig will take place at City Hall.

Tea Party Propositions

    The four corners at LaPaz and Marguerite were crowded with protesters Monday afternoon.  One picket summarized the sentiment: “Tax and Spend Must End.”

    The turnout urged passers-by to vote NO on all of the propositions on Tuesday’s state ballot.  The event was sponsored by the Saddleback Republican Assembly, but drew protestors from both parties who were united against higher taxes.

    The event built on the TEA (Taxed Enough Already) Party movement that arose with demonstrations across the country on tax day, April 15.  Some California cities witnessed similar proposition protests over the past weekend.

Cloris    Award-winning  actress  Cloris  Leachman will appear at the Murray Center Sunday at 2pm to promote her new autobiography, Cloris.  News of the visit circulated early among insiders, and the free reservations were assigned several weeks ago, before the event was truly promoted. 

    Although the event is closed, residents may get a glimpse of Leachman and an autograph if they purchase a book and remain until after the main event, which is scheduled until 4.

    Leachman won nine Emmy Awards and an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her role in “The Last Picture Show.” She is best known for playing Phyllis on the 1970s TV series “The Mary Tyler Moore Show.” Most recently, the 83-years-old competed on “Dancing with the Stars,” and she was grand marshal of the 2009 Tournament of Roses Parade.

    The event is sponsored by Friends of the Library.  Those attending are invited to bring a non-perishable food item to support the South County Outreach Food Bank.
