Though the calendar may say spring has begun, its OFFICIAL arrival in many people's eyes is actually Monday --Opening Day of the baseball season. Orange County's own California Angels open their season at Anaheim Stadium on Tuesday against the Chicago White Sox. It will be the Angels' 24th year at the stadium, and almost 39 million fans have root, root, rooted for the home team during that time.

As we finish off 2013, here are a few things I'd like to see in the sports world for the New Year: •An official announcement from the NFL that Los Angeles will finally have a team again (preferably the Rams, back where they belong). The end of sideline reporters. There is nothing more annoying in sports than a sideline reporter shoving a microphone into a coach's face during the game or as he's trying to get to the locker room at halftime. Speaking of annoying, it's time for Fox Sports to lose the NFL robot jumping around the television screen.

Outtakes went to 20 talent agents and casting directors, asking them to envision the new Angels. Some suggestions: Portray them as active, busy women, said Mary Buck, Buck/Edelman Casting. "Women of the '80s, my perception is they're doing everything. They have careers, they have babies, they take care of themselves emotionally and physically." They should project "a sense of their own authority and autonomy," said talent agent Hilary Shor, Flick East/West Talent.

No hits,no regrets Philadelphia's Cole Hamels and the Angels' Jered Weaver were born a year apart, Hamels in San Diego and Weaver in Northridge. Each made his major league debut in May 2006. The career numbers are strikingly similar. Hamels has pitched 1,194 innings, Weaver 1,176. Hamels is 77-55 with a 3.38 earned-run average, 297 walks and 1,127 strikeouts. Weaver is 86-47 with a 3.24 ERA, 315 walks and 1,022 strikeouts. Yet one number will be dramatically different, the number following the dollar sign.

It's possible the California Angels will move their spring training headquarters to Florida during the 1990s, but the team's director of operations said today that he hopes something can be worked out in Arizona.

"We would love to come to an agreement with Gilbert, we really would. "The bottom line is the money and where it would come from.

The city has received a $5-million legal settlement from its insurance companies, but the windfall will not substantially improve its shaky financial condition, officials said Tuesday. The money will partially reimburse the city for the $6.8 million it spent to defend itself against a lawsuit filed by the California Angels baseball team over a proposed office complex to be built in Anaheim Stadium's parking lot.

Welcome aboard the Angel bandwagon, and here are the lyrics to the team fight song. The existence of a fight song might surprise even longtime fans, since the Angels stashed the song in the proverbial attic for years. This year, with the return of the traditional halo to the logo, the Angels also brought back the old fight song in one of their television commercials, changing "California Angels" to "Anaheim Angels."

Three hikers who had become disoriented and dehydrated were rescued by helicopter Saturday from the top of a precipice deep in the Angeles National Forest, Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies reported. None of the hikers was injured. Deputy Rick Pedroza said a sheriff's air rescue helicopter plucked two 28-year-old women and a 27-year-old man from the ledge of a 100-foot cliff near the Dawn Mine Trail in Millard Canyon. The emergency call came in about 12:15 p.m. The hikers had been walking for more than four hours when they became disoriented and started to suffer dehydration, Pedroza said.

The Angels are close to an agreement to buy a 50,000-watt radio station that is expected to air the team's Spanish-language broadcasts this season, two sources said Wednesday. As the Angels seek to expand their audience through Southern California and generate additional revenue from broadcasting, the deal could represent a step toward the team's owning a radio and television outlet within three years. The radio station, 830 AM, airs Spanish-language programming.

As the state capital's largest public health hospital, the Earl K. Long Medical Center routinely accepted people other institutions didn't like to, or simply wouldn't. But immediately after Hurricane Katrina struck, the hospital, critically short of staff, began turning away desperate New Orleans evacuees who not only couldn't pay but who had just lost everything. The hospital, whose mission it is to care for those whom no one else does, was forced to close to new patients.

The Angels can operate as the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, at least for the next two weeks. The city of Anaheim lost its bid Friday for a temporary restraining order that would have immediately blocked the Angels' name change. Orange County Superior Court Judge Peter Polos set a Jan. 21 hearing on the issue and ruled the city would not be irreparably harmed if the team used its new name until then. "We're disappointed, but we're certainly not dismayed or defeated," City Atty. Jack White said.

The Angels say they plan to sell themselves as the Angels, without reference to Anaheim or Los Angeles, which makes perfect sense to the team's elder statesman. "Kids don't come up to me and say, 'Do you play for Anaheim?' They say, 'Do you play for the Angels?' " designated hitter Tim Salmon said Tuesday from his Arizona home. Salmon, the all-time franchise leader in home runs, made his major league debut in 1992, wearing the yellow halo of the California Angels.
