SAN QUENTIN - The scene was almost indistinguishable from that in any other newsroom. Editors sat around chatting about the next issue and tinkering with stories. Front pages were tacked up on the walls, and family photos were taped to computer terminals. But in fact this newspaper office was unlike almost any other, obvious from the dress code: Staff members wore the standard blue uniform of California prison inmates. When the phone rang, the answer was a crisp, "Hello, San Quentin News.

Last season, while Dwight Howard was recovering from back surgery, he also apparently was struggling with another problem -- sugar. After watching Howard play for the Lakers, Dr. Cate Shanahan was struck by what she saw.  "It looked like he was wearing oven mitts out there," Shanahan told cbssports.com . "It reminded me of patients who have pre-diabetes and neurological problems because of how sugar impacts the nervous system. That's where I became really concerned. " Shanahan contacted longtime Laker trainer Gary Vitti, and set up a meeting with the 28-year-old center.  She discovered that Howard's glucose readings were sky-high.

Re "'Assembly Moves to Lift Smoking Ban," Jan. 29: I can't believe it! What have we got in Sacramento? A bunch of wimps? I just do not understand the stance that they have taken on smoking in bars. I have waited years to go see some of the greatest jazz musicians, but the smoking in most of the places they play has precluded that. Now that I have the opportunity, they are going to lift the ban. I certainly hope that the state Senate has more sense than the Assembly. Nonsmokers outnumber smokers almost 3 to 1--that's a pretty big deficit when it comes to election time.
