Page 2 The CATALINA ISLANDER Friday, March 7, 2003 The Catalina Island Museum staff are at it again. Creative minds and energy have given birth to a new logo for the museum in time to debut in its 50th anniversary year. The new logo is loosely based on old postcards from the 1930s, what many consider the Island's heyday when big bands played in the Casino, the Chicago Cubs practiced during the spring and celebrities relaxed and played at the elegant Hotel St. Catherine. Along with the new logo comes a new tagline, "History's" ~i~k~'s newv been ~is .ua:h t~: New logo express creativity, energy and nostalgia. never been this much fun!"

The new logo is a reflection of the creativity, energy and nostal- gia of the Catalina Island MuseurrL "As we debut our exciting new logo, we want to also pay tribute to the one we've had for many years," stated Musetim Director Stacey Otte. "Long time resident and former Disney artist James Trout designed the previous logo as a reflection of the collecting areas of the museum and we have used it proudly for years." Otte went on to say, "We felt, though, it was time to [relook] at our entire image and our logo needed to be an expression of where we are today and where we're going. We feel that the new logo really does this." The Catalina Island Museum was founded in 1953 by com- munity volunteers to preserve the history of Santa Catalina Island. It is a private, nonprofit organi- z ation. For more information about the museum, call (310) 510-2414. There's nothing quite like the sound of a roulette hall bouncing from slot to slot, the click of dice bouncing off the panel of the craps table, or the hoots and hollers of a happy blackjack player when the ace of spades lands on top of the king of hearts, to whet the appetite of a gambler hungry for another payoff. Of course, gambling of such sorts is illegal in most of California, that is unless the gambling is done for fun and pltasure only, and does epitomizes the abundance of goodwill and fellowship that helps to shape the experience of living in Two Harbors into such a distinctively unique and pleasur- able lifestyle. Taco Tuesday, one of the "winter specials" at the Harbor Reef Restaurant, reached a new milestone last week when the Reef cooked and served 387 tacos to hungry diners. Among the taco eaters were two individuals attempting to dislodge "Taco not occur using real money and - King" Scott "Scootch" Albers real payoffs. Casino Night at the Harbor Reef Saloon was just such a sporting event last Friday. A big turnout of about 150 anxious "gamblers" turned out for the event hosted by Two Harbors Enterprises and special events coordinator Gina Long. Long and her able bodied casino volunteers converted the interior of the Harbor Reef into a who. a few weeks ago, set the taco record at the Reef by consuming 25 tacos. When Nate Sirocco, from Camp Cherry Valley's CIMI pro- gram, gulped down his twentieth taco (eating each taco in two bites), it appeared that Scootch was about to "go down." But, a half a taco later, Nate suddenly started sweating, turned pale, ran for the restroom and unfor- ]] veritable Las Vegas style gambling tunately, spewed, well, let's just hall.

In point of fact, the Tole Mour (which means "Gift of Health" in Mmslmlese) is the correct spelling of the stately ship, and Sunday Brunch at the Banning House is on Sunday (on selected weekends), not Saturday.
