Interview From page 6 We now have them on permanent exhibition. It was a remarkable discovery. It represents an ongoing attempt by us to delve deeper into subjects like George Harrison and Catalina Island. Every time we do that, we find new material. We make discoveries. The same thing happened with Marilyn Monroe and the Island. That has been very exciting. So you could say Pattie's relationship with the Island goes back to 1970, when these photo- graph were made. How will the new building of the museum offer even more opportunities to promote the musical side of the museum's mission? Right now, we are very sporadic when we stage music events. We don't really have a music venue in the museum. We are quite lim- ited. The new building will have many large outdoor areas that can be used for music. I don't think I'm exaggerating when I say that every weekend in the summertime bands will be playing out there. I certainly think the vast majority of them will be Avalon bands. We've intentionally designed the top area of the new building for exactly that. I think music here is extremely good, and it will get better, but musicians need gigs to survive. We are going to be one of those places that will provide steady employment. We also want to con- tinue our Fourth of July Music Festival, the Holiday Symphony Concert and Silent Film Benefit. We bring variety to the local music scene, and we're proud of that. We do believe that our mis- sion is to entertain, educate and edify. We take that seriously, and you will see this more and more, once we move into the new build- ing. Don't miss this rare screening of "A Hard Day's Night", fol- lowed by a book signing and live interview with Pattie Boyd, in which she will share her memo- ries and first-hand experience of the Beatles during the height of Beatlemania. The event will take place on Sunday, July 6 in Avalon's Casino Theatre at 7 p.m.. Tickets are $8 for museum members and $10 for general admission.

Montapert, author of "The Supreme Philosophy of man: The Laws of Life." "We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them" --Albert Einstein, scientist BY JUDY HIBBS Catalina Island Medical Center recently announced the hir- ing of Dexter Amend III, PT. Amend joins the growing Therapy Services department at the hos- pital that offers a wide range of physical therapy services for resi- dents and visitors. He said the Island is "gorgeous." Having grown up in the Spokane, Washington, area he attended school at Eastern Washington University in Cheney, Washington. Amend is anxious to bring his experiences with pediatric and Dexter Amend geriatric patients to Catalina. His abilities in manual therapy and massage in addition to other treat- ments and exercises for patients will be a welcome addition to the services CIMC offers. "I grew up in a farm com- munity in Mead, Washington, so I love small towns where everyone smiles and waves at you," he said. Amend was college pre-med with the intention of studying obstet- rics. He then majored in human biology and exercise physiology. He served as an Air Force medic out of Ramstein AFB dur- ing Desert Storm while a military reservist in the 1990s. A serious car accident and his own need for physical therapy subsequently altered his career path. For more information on therapy services at the Medical Center, call 310-510- 0700.
