UCLA tonight VS. OAKLAND When: 6. Where: Pauley Pavilion. On the air: TV: Pac-12 Networks; Radio: 570. Records: Bruins 1-0, Golden Grizzlies 0-1. Update: The No. 24 Bruins escaped with a 72-67 victory in their season opener against Drexel. They must work on improving the flow of their half-court offense and finding a reasonable balance between man-to-man and zone defense. With senior forward Travis Wear still recovering from an appendectomy, UCLA was thin up front and struggled when center Tony Parker got into early foul trouble.

There will be no animals at the Ramos Bros. Circus set to return to Glendale this week. City officials requested that the zebras, horses and other four-legged performers, except dogs and cats, be kept out of the show, in part because a camel escaped last November .

You never know what you might see in Reno. On our first night in town, my wife and 6-year-old daughter called me to look out the window of our 27th-story hotel room. There, in the center of town, was a brilliant fireworks display - an appropriate welcome to this Nevada town full of flash and color. Although there is a plethora of casinos and night life, we found this mini-Vegas to be offbeat and kid-friendly. It's also affordable: two nights at Circus Circus cost about $175, a buffet dinner for two at the Silver Legacy was $50 and the Discovery Museum cost $24 for two adults and one child.

Two Oklahoma inmates were captured Monday, but two other escapees remained on the loose after the men broke out of a county jail through the shower room crawl space over the weekend. Police said they caught up with Dylan Ray Three Irons, 21, and Prime Tounwin Brown, 23, looking wet and dirty, at a convenience store in Chickasha, where they attempted to make a run for it before they were arrested, according to a news release. Officials said Three Irons and Brown, along with Triston Cheadle, 32, and Anthony James Mendonca, 24, had escaped from the Caddo County jail in nearby Anadarko early Sunday morning.

Mendocino gets most of the ink when the virtues of quaint, oceanside Northern California villages are written up, but Fort Bragg, its more working-class neighbor to the north, is no slouch when it comes to charms. My sweetheart and I spent a few days here last winter and could have filled a few guidebook chapters with all the good goings-on. Tallied up, we spent about $650, which included $340 for two nights at the North Cliff Hotel, just listed on TripAdvisor as a 2013 Travelers' Choice for Romance.
