"NYC Marathon Here in Mtn View"
Long-time Mountain View resident and NYC Marathon runner Lynda Turkus was one of the 38,000 athletes on hand to witness Super Storm Sandy's terrible destruction earlier this month. When the race was cancelled Lynda made sure her original donations were delivered to Team for Kids. Then, on Nov 18 she brought the spirit of rebuilding through the streets of her St. Francis Acres neighborhood - and a little beyond. With the help of family and friends, Lynda ran a mapped 26.2-mile course - this time for "Race for Recovery", the marathoners' fund to help the victims of the hurricane. She finished big, just in front of her house, amidst cheering well-wishers in a time of 6 hours 22 min.

Joined at the hip
Some stories easily lend themselves to musical theater. An old-timey circus sideshow with a cast of "freak" characters -- and the incredible true story of singing, dancing conjoined twins who became the toast of vaudeville -- is one of them. That story and setting, paired with a melodic score, strong performances and eye-catching visuals, make Foothill Music Theatre's current production of "Side Show" a winner. Wednesday, 11:00 AM

Healthy and hip
Don't let the "healthy" aspect of True Food Kitchen make you think of bland brown rice concoctions or tried-and-true stir-fried vegetables. The menu is creative, varied and diverse. Thursday, 3:04 PM
