Grace Southerland was an excellent student. For 20 weeks, she wasn't tardy and had only three absences. The eighth-grader took such classes as U.S. history, spelling and sewing. Her grades weren't labeled A's and Bs but "excellent" and "good. " That's because Grace's report card dates to 1900. And so do many other pieces, some later in the century, being showcased at the Los Angeles Unified School District's "Heritage House" exhibit, which opened Tuesday. Grace's barely smudged, intact report card was on display, along with a shiny 1950 decorated teapot used by girls in a home economics class.

TEMPE, Ariz. - The new instant-replay and home-plate collision rules were the primary topics of the Angels' annual spring-training Players' Assn. meeting Sunday morning. There has been some confusion about the rules and how they've been implemented in exhibition games, and new union chief Tony Clark acknowledged a growing concern among players about whether the rules will enhance or detract from the game. Then, a few hours later, a fifth-inning play in the Angels' 3-1 victory over the Cincinnati Reds did nothing to ease the debate.

Beautiful and terrifying, the painting hangs in the foyer of Cheech Marin's oceanside home. It depicts a car crash on the upper deck of an L.A. freeway, an appallingly seductive vision of maimed metal erupting into fauvist-tinted fireballs. "That's the fascination, that fear-attraction simultaneously," says Marin, best known as the more antichalf of the comic duo Cheech and Chong. Three years from now, "Sunset Crash" will be among the big draws of the most comprehensive exhibition devoted to Carlos Almaraz, at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Titled "Playing With Fire," it will be part of "Pacific Standard Time: L.A./L.A.," a Getty-funded, multi-venue initiative that will explore artistic connections between Los Angeles and Latin America.

If World Cup tuneups are designed to build confidence and improve team chemistry, then Ukraine's emotional 2-0 win over the U.S. on Wednesday in Larnaca, Cyprus, was a disaster for the Americans. But if the idea is to identify weaknesses and expose mistakes, then the match was a huge success. Because the U.S. did little right in a sloppy, confused effort that is all the more worrisome since it came less than 100 days from the start of this summer's tournament in Brazil. "It was difficult for a lot of players to get into a rhythm, to stand out," said U.S. Coach Juergen Klinsmann, who used the match as a final evaluation for the European-based players on the fringes of his World Cup roster.

Rosa Quirino liked to perform with leather huaraches on her feet and a shawl criss-crossed over her chest, in a nod to Pancho Villa. When men teased her as she sang, she would tell them: "Gentlemen, we are working. " Then, she'd pull out her gun. The year was 1903, and Doña Rosa, a mariachi from Mexico who began playing violin at age 13, was a rare sight. Her story and others are being featured in an exhibit this month at the San Gabriel Mission Playhouse. The show covers more than a century of history surrounding female mariachis: ladies who found success - starring on television, scoring sponsors and performing internationally - at a time when the Mexican music genre was ruled entirely by men. "They were seen, they were heard, they performed in front of thousands of people," said Leonor Xochitl Perez, the exhibit's organizer.

PHOENIX - It was only a spring-training game, but it didn't matter. "It matters to me," Clayton Kershaw said. Kershaw was upset Monday after making his second exhibition-season start, which was even worse than his first. Facing the Oakland Athletics, he pitched two perfect innings, only to implode in the third, giving up three walks and two run-scoring singles. He was removed by Manager Don Mattingly before recording an out. "Physically, I feel great," Kershaw said.

Oakland Athletics 7, Dodgers 3 AT THE PLATE: Andre Ethier is quietly having a solid spring. He collected two more hits and drove in a run, raising his exhibition average to .455. Dee Gordon tripled in a run for the second consecutive game. Adrian Gonzalez was one for three to maintain his .333 average. ON THE MOUND: Brandon League pitched his first game and looked as he did last year in the first season of his three-year, $22.5-million contract. Entering as a third-inning replacement for Clayton Kershaw, League allowed two inherited runners to score.

PHOENIX  -- Zack Greinke has canceled his Saturday bullpen session because of lingering problems with his right calf muscle, a development that reduces his chances of pitching in the Dodgers' season-opening series in Australia. Greinke strained the muscle Thursday in his first start of the exhibition season. He was removed from the game after making only four pitches. With Greinke's status uncertain, the Dodgers could start Hyun-Jin Ryu and Dan Haren in their two-game set against the Arizona Diamondbacks in Australia on March 22-23.
