            On exhibit at the museum through January 6, 2013 is “Leadership: Oliphant Cartoons from the Bush Years.” Pat Oliphant, who has been called by the New York Times, "the most influential cartoonist now working," occupies a unique position among today's editorial cartoonists. Widely considered the dean of the profession, he is one of its sharpest most daring practitioners. Leadership: Oliphant Cartoons from the Bush Years features original ink drawings, sketches, prints and sculptures form 2001-2009.

            MG Disposal Systems, the city's trash contractor, will not observe the holiday, and will make trash collections on the 12.

            Once at Hillcrest, a ceremony will be held at 11 a.m. at the veterans memorials.  Guest speaker will be Colonel Richard A. Lamb, Commander, 311th Sustainment Command (Expeditionary) (Rear), Los Angeles.  

            All veterans are welcome to join in the parade.   Participants are asked to arrive at the plaza no earlier than 10 a.m.  To participate, veterans must be able to march in regular cadence for approximately three-quarters of a mile.
