At the headquarters of Boston Medical Group in Costa Mesa, six salesmen were working the toll-free appointment line on a recent afternoon, fielding calls from men around the country enticed by newspaper and radio ads promising a "proven" solution to erectile dysfunction in "one office visit.

Henry Fukuhara, a California watercolorist and teacher who attracted many of the field's most accomplished artists to annual painting workshops at the Manzanar relocation camp in Owens Valley, where he and thousands of other Japanese Americans were incarcerated during World War II, died of natural causes Jan. 31 at a nursing home in Yorba Linda, according to his grandson, Paul Niwa. He was 96. A retired flower grower and wholesaler who did not begin painting in earnest until he was nearly 60, Fukuhara was known for energetic, abstract paintings, particularly of Manzanar and Santa Monica, where he grew up. "Henry had such a unique style, so different from most plein-air artists," said Bill Anderson, whose Sunset Beach gallery represented Fukuhara.

I've been to Disneyland hundreds of times over the last two decades and have been writing the Funland theme park blog for about four years now. As a result, people are always asking me how to do everything at Disneyland in a single day. The short answer is you probably can't. It can be a struggle for even hard-core fans with military assault-like strategies. The longer answer is there's lots of ways to maximize your time in the park and get on the most rides possible. PHOTOS: How to do Disneyland in a day So in honor of Disneyland's 24-hour Leap Day celebration , here are my seven tips for tackling Disneyland in a day: Tip 1: If you're trying to get the most out of your day at Disneyland , I always recommend arriving just before the park opens in the morning, staying until the park closes at night and taking a long break in the heat of the afternoon at your hotel pool or cocktail bar. It may sound like a long day, but you'll get more done in the first two hours and the last two hours of your day than if you spent 15 hours straight at the park.

Before the game Saturday, Dodgers Manager Don Mattingly spoke glowingly of the work veteran reliever Kevin Gregg had turned in this spring. “He's been great,” Mattingly said. “I know he can't be this good. But every time out, he just gets outs. “He couldn't have had a better camp really. We're just trying to figure a way to keep Kevin around.” Turns out they couldn't, at least for now. After the Dodgers' 2-1 loss to the Angels they announced most, but not all, of their moves to get the roster down to 25 for Monday's season opener.

PEORIA, Ariz. -- While Clayton Kershaw and a group of D-listers faced the Seattle Mariners on Wednesday, most of the Dodgers were already on their way back to Los Angeles. Chris Capuano and Aaron Harang departed camp without knowing what their futures held. Members of the team's five-man rotation last year, they figure to be traded or moved to the bullpen. Ted Lilly, who was scheduled to follow Kershaw on Wednesday, is also out of the rotation. But Manager Don Mattingly said Lilly could start the season on the disabled list.
