Mark Cannon was silenced for awhile Wednesday night. Unfortunately for Chaminade, it wasn't long enough. Cannon, a senior guard, sparked Chatsworth with three three-pointers in the fourth quarter to carry the Chancellors to a 56-42 victory over the Eagles in a quarterfinal of the Valencia tournament. Cannon sank seven three-pointers and finished with 26 points. He made four three-pointers in the second quarter, helping the Chancellors (6-2) build a 35-21 lead.

Actress-director Dyan Cannon recalls in her memoir, "Dear Cary: My Life With Cary Grant," that she and Grant were over the moon with joy at the birth of their daughter, Jennifer, in February 1966. But when she brought the baby home, Cannon realized that her beloved Yorkie, Bangs, was nowhere to be found. Grant matter-of-factly told her that he had given Bangs away. "Infants and dogs aren't a good mix, Dyan," she quotes him as saying. "Animals can experience extreme jealousy around newborns.

Researchers raised another cannon from an underwater site two miles offshore. They hope it will help prove the sunken wreckage was once the flagship of the notorious pirate Blackbeard. "We knew it the first day, and we still have absolutely no doubt that she's the Queen Anne's Revenge," said Phil Masters, whose Florida-based research firm located the wreckage in 1996. "There is no other ship lost at Beaufort Inlet with anything more than 10 cannon."

"Loose Cannons" (citywide) is yet another mismatched buddy-buddy cop movie. Even though director-co-writer Bob Clark has a bright, genial style, there's a foredoomed feel about it all. Gene Hackman is the tough, irreverent old pro, Dan Aykroyd is his overly sensitive, on-the-edge partner and, once again, they battle their way through a screaming maze of psycho criminals, car-chases and wisecracks to find happiness. As a buddy couple, Hackman and Aykroyd are not bad.

Dyan Cannon's two cats, Puppy and Kitty, were snoozing in cushy chairs while we sat on her living room floor, talking, laughing and snacking on fruit. The actress, whose latest movie, "Out to Sea," with Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau, opens next week, slowly peeled the skin from a tangerine. "Look at that," Cannon, 60, observed. The tangerine spray had caught inside a sunbeam and that made her smile. * Question: You're really enjoying life, aren't you?
