The University of California moved quickly Friday to begin cutting trees in a grove on campus where tree-sitters have staged a protest for the last 21 months in a bid to block construction of an athletic facility. Four tree-sitters perched in a 90-foot redwood found themselves increasingly isolated as workers began cutting the trees around them. University officials said they expect all of the grove's trees to be chopped down by Monday except the one the four men are occupying.

Sunshine. What else could it be? Why else would the NFL hold the door open for as long as it takes the two competing Los Angeles football ownership groups to get all of their paperwork in order and win themselves an expansion franchise? Houston has everything together, the right stadium plans, the right money, all set to go. The NFL treats Houston the way a teacher ignores the class nerd, looking over his raised hand and hoping someone else wants to answer. And that someone else will be L.A.

Sports fields are sometimes booked until 10 p.m. on weeknights with team after team practicing for weekend games. A youth soccer league has raised more than $75,000 to turn a city park into a suitable site for games. And basketball teams often practice outside through the winter. This family friendly city, which has long enjoyed a reputation for bountiful open space and recreation programs, may seem an unlikely place to find a shortage of play fields and gymnasiums.
