When Lawrence Kasdan first came to Hollywood in the mid-1970’s, his scripts were rejected 37 times. Since then he has done better. Last night, the producer of The Big Chill, French Kiss, Body Heat and many other films, stood on the stage at the Arlington Theater and welcomed a full crowd of 2,000 people to opening night at the 27th Santa Barbara International Film Festival “We are honored and we are stocked!” he shouted to the cheering crowd. They had come to see glamour, style and talent of Hollywood and Kasdan brought all of that, plus some energy *5$3+,&6s:(%'(6,*1s0$5.(7,1*s025(

Kasdan’s newest film, Darling Companion, was featured and on hand were the stars, Kevin Klein, Diane Keaton, the alluring Ayelet Zurer, and Kasdan’s wife and co-screen writer, Meg Kasdan. The Kasdans made a leisurely walk up the red carpet in front of the Arlington, obviously enjoying the moment. “It’s our first film festival,” he admitted, in a bit of a surprise. “The biggest challenge of making the film was that we had very little time or money,” Kasdan said, Meg by his side. “We did it in six weeks.

Americans can’t leave Egypt NEWS IN BRIEF
Sheriff’s Office looks for missing teen Andrew Calzada, left, is missing from his home in Carpinteria, possibly with Kayla Kimzey, 19, at right.
DAILY SOUND STAFF REPORT
Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s detectives are asking for the Six Americans working for publicly funded U.S. organizations promoting democracy in Egypt have been barred from leaving the public’s help in finding a missing teenager from Carpinteria.

The United States said Egypt should reverse them: "We are urging the government of Egypt to lift these restrictions immediately and allow these folks to come home as soon as possible," State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said. Environmentalists sued the U.S. government on Thursday over naval training exercises off the West Coast involving sonar that they say harms endangered marine animals in the Pacific Texas executed a convicted murderer by lethal injection on Ocean including killer whales.

Facebook takes on ‘clickjacking’
Facebook and the state of Washington sued a company on Thursday they accused of a practice called "clickjacking" that fools users of the world's top social network into visiting advertising sites, divulging personal information and spreading the scam to friends. The scheme, also known as "likejacking" because victims are tricked into using Facebook's "Like" button to perpetuate it, has grossed $1.2 million a month for the Delaware-based firm, Adscend Media, according to the state attorney general's office. Adscend profits from the scam by collecting money from its advertising clients for every Facebook user unwittingly misdirected to a target ad or subscription service, the plaintiffs said. Two separate but similar claims filed in federal court by the state and Facebook accuse Adscend of violating federal and state statutes outlawing misleading or deceptive commercial electronic communications and unfair business practices.
Authorities believe Calzada is traveling with 19-year old Kayla Kimzey. Authorities believe the two could be in the Carpinteria or Pasadena area. Anyone with information regarding the location of either Calzada or Kimzey is encouraged to contact the Santa Barbara Sheriff’s Office at (805) 683-2724 or the Sheriff’s Anonymous Tip Line at (805) 681-4171.
Environmentalists sue government to protect whales from Navy sonar
tion of environmental activists led by Earthjustice. The coalition is asking the fisheries service to reconsider a 2010 decision in support of the Navy's training exercises in waters spanning from California to the Canadian border. "Whales and other marine animals don't stand a chance against the Navy," said Miyoko Sakashita, Oceans Director for the Center for Biological Diversity. A U.S. Navy spokesman declined to comment on the lawsuit. The National Marine Fisheries Service has not yet received any information on the suit, the agency's spokesperson said. In 2008, the U.S. Supreme Court sided with the Navy, ruling that sonar training exercises off the Southern California coast could be conducted without restrictions designed to protect marine life, in a defeat for environmentalists.
Spring into new love KITTY IN THE CITY
What you choose to put out will come right back to you
Dear Miss Kitty, I have been in a relationship for the past three years. My other half is a widow and we met right after he lost his wife. He is a lovely man in all ways except there isn’t that sparkly thing and never has been. For once in my life I would really like to have my heart beat a little faster, but I don’t want to hurt him. Suggestions are more than welcome. – L, Santa Barbara
Dead or alive is something that goes hand in hand with a classic western wanted poster, not something that one lives on a daily basis. There is no guarantee that anyone will find heart pounding romance, but you get points for trying. Unfortunately romance isn’t in the same category as death and taxes, but everyone does have the opportunity to not only entertain the thought, but to go on the mission and to not even try is like coloring celery instead of eggs or floating a MISS KITTY pork chop in matzo ball soup – disgusting and Dear L, rather unforgiveable. I am very fond of Yiddish, and there is a lovely You said that he is a lovely man in all ways, a regular Yiddish word – “Mensch”, which formally means a perMr. Mensch, which means I would take a bet that he is son of integrity and honor, but between you and me eternally grateful for the rock you have been during the means a very nice guy or gal with a clear sense of what it last three years. It is no small thing to lose a life partner means to do the right thing. A Mensch is someone that and what you have done and been is commendable. He makes a very good friend. However, there is nothing in will understand that you deserve to have happiness in the the Yiddish dictionary, Wikipedia or The World form you want it to be. And here’s another secret, if you According to Miss Kitty that says being a Mensch in a don’t have sparkle with him, he doesn’t have it from you and now maybe since three years have gone by, he is ready for a little sparkle himself.

certain situation means being one always and forever. Making life a little inconvenient by fostering a puppy or ten is one thing, but giving up the possibility to have a real romance for once in your life is altogether another M word. M is for Martyr – and no one really feels good when anyone is a martyr. In secret invisible writing in the original Bible, it says that the disciples, yelled to Jesus, “Enough already! Get down from there right now.” Buddha’s followers claimed (again in secret invisible writing) to bring him burgers, fries and a strawberry shake while he was under “The Tree” but he said no. And finally in another little known secret, Mother Theresa was given the entire Dior Spring collection every single year, but just didn’t think it would be right to wear couture in Calcutta.
Darling L, Boys and Girls: Spring in all its forms and traditions heralds newness, growth and change. It isn’t that the harshness of what is part of our world suddenly doesn’t exist- but it does mean that this is a time and has been for all the ages to acknowledge what is miraculously new again. Are we so jaded or scared that we can’t reach out and make a Spring for ourselves? I don’t think so – sometimes we just need someone to tell us or give us a little push to know its O.K. That push, combined with the strong pull of focusing our own thoughts on the positive has the power to buff a rusty relationship into a permanent and harmonious sparkle, or propel us to find one that does. And that’s another secret I found in an old and dusty book, written in invisible ink. Have a naughty day! Miss Kitty aka Melanie Doctors can be reached at email@example.com

Jan. 20, 9:13 p.m.: Officers arrested a 29year-old man after he allegedly tried to molest an 8-year-old girl.

When the girl screamed for her mother, the man allegedly let go and the girl ran out the door. Police found the man in his room passed out in his room on top of a pile of clothes with

Jan. 21, 12:35 a.m.: Police caught a Seattle man with ecstasy in the Savoy. While doing a premises check of the nightclub, an officer stopped to watch a group of people sitting in the lounge area. The officer allegedly saw the suspect holding a small bag with a white powdery substance inside it. When the officer stopped the man, a field test allegedly showed the powder to be ecstasy. The 28-year-old man admitted to buying “party drugs” from a man he didn’t know in the Savoy. He was arrested for possession and booked into county jail on $10,000 bail. Jan. 21, 10:22 a.m.: Officers arrested a 49year-old man after he started swearing at Smart & Final employees. The man walked into the store and started shouting offensive language.

Jan. 21, 5:24 p.m.: A 51-year-old man allegedly started squatting in his friend’s apartment. The suspect’s friend had been in a coma for over a month at Cottage Hospital. The man’s daughter came in to clean the apartment one day and found the suspect asleep inside. He left after the daughter told him to get out. She came in another day and allegedly found the man asleep in the apartment again. This time she called police. The man admitted that he knew he didn’t have permission to stay in the apartment. He was arrested for trespassing and booked into county jail on $2,500 bail.
Jan. 22, 2:30 a.m.: A 25-year-old man allegedly sent another man to the hospital after knocking him out. The suspect allegedly punched the victim in the face twice on the 400 block of Chapala Street. When a witness tried to intervene, the

The victim hit his head on ground, causing a deep cut that needed stitches. Police arrested the man for the attacks on both the victim and the witness.
Jan. 22, 1:26 p.m.: Police found a 48-yearold man hiding in the desalination plant.

A background check found the man had been convicted of stealing copper in the past. The desalination plant is a frequent target of thieves looking for copper wire. The man denied cutting any wires and no property damage had been found. Police arrested him for prowling and possession of burglary tools. They didn’t find anyone else.

Romney puts Gingrich on defensive in Florida debate Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney took the fight to chief rival Newt Gingrich on Thursday in his most aggressive debate performance yet, five days ahead of Florida's primary vote. A neck-and-neck race for Florida and its importance for the Republican presidential nomination made for a combustible atmosphere at the University of North Florida in Jacksonville as the candidates sparred repeatedly. Gingrich, who has displayed a mastery of debating skills during previous debates, was frequently caught flat-footed under attack from Romney who went after his chief rival in an attempt to put his campaign back on track after losing South Carolina last Saturday. Gingrich and Romney are running close in polls before next Tuesday's primary vote in Florida, the biggest state so far in the early voting for the Republican nomination to face President Barack Obama in November. The most recent polls put Romney ahead. Romney, a former Massachusetts governor, took umbrage at Gingrich's description of him as "anti-immigrant." "That's inexcusable," Romney said, turning to his rival. "I'm not anti-immigrant. My father was born in Mexico. ... The idea that I'm anti-immigrant is repulsive. Don't use a term like that." Gingrich, who has offered a softer version of immigration policy than most Republican conservatives, insisted the United States could not
rationally deport millions of people and that some who had lived here for decades should be allowed to stay. But he added some confusion to his position by saying he would support some version of "self-deportation," the very issue he has criticized Romney for supporting. "Newt needed a big night to turn around the momentum and he didn't get it. He struck me as tired and too ticked for his own good," wrote conservative columnist Rich Lowry on the National Review's website. His blog post was titled "Newt's worst night." GINGRICH ATTACK FELL FLAT Gingrich has enjoyed support from rockribbed conservatives in debate audiences by attacking debate moderators. But this time, his effort to chastise CNN moderator Wolf Blitzer over a question about Romney's tax disclosures fell flat when Blitzer stood his ground and insisted Gingrich explain a comment he made in a TV interview that Romney "lives in a world of Swiss bank and Cayman Island bank accounts. Gingrich did draw attention to Romney's vast wealth, which was put under the microscope this week when the former private equity executive release two years of tax documents. "I don't know of any American president who has had a Swiss bank account. I'd be glad for you to explain that sort of thing," he said.
