As actors prepare for the opening night of ?Oliver!? ? checking the lights and sound, making sure they don?t forget their lines and preparing for dress rehearsal ? 12-year-old Jake Olson is trying to memorize the set-up of the stage, so he doesn?t run into any props or scenery. During the play, Jake has the added challenge of remembering how to get around. Not only are the lights bright on stage and the theater dark between scenes, but he is also legally blind.

At first look, it's really hard to tell one 19-year-old twin from the other. Joe and Luke McGarry are seamless in looks and in the music of their indie pop group "Pop Noir." The Huntington Beach duo made their debut at 16 at an abandoned skate park in Costa Mesa. Now, they are on the cusp of performing at Manchester's "In the City" music festival, a British version of the South by Southwest music fest in Austin, Texas. "In the City," known better for launching the careers of Oasis, Coldplay, Doves, the Stereophonics and the Foo Fighters, runs from Oct. 29 to Oct. 31. The McGarrys are excited and cautious about the opportunity.

Richard Robitaille feels gratified when the twins race to him, waving greetings. They're not his children; they're not even related. They are 5-year-old boys who he has nurtured for more than a year with his wife Patricia. Although this responsibility befell the Huntington Beach residents as part of their work with Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA), they doled out the same care that they would have given to their own grandchildren, who are about the same age. "Watching their personalities change, although it's nothing drastic, gives me a warm teddy bear feeling," said Richard, 73. The siblings were 2 years old when they were taken away from their mother and placed in a group home.

All I could hear was the sound of perpetually falling water. I stood recently in the shadow of the Freedom Tower under construction, and faced one of the two parapets with names of the dead etched in bronze. Not even the rattle of jackhammers in the background could interrupt this moment for me. I was gazing down at a square hole in the ground from which the second of the twin towers had soared. The memorial parapet framed the footprint of the 110-story building formerly known as 2 World Trade Center, or the south tower.
