Recent exit interviews with departing Los Angeles police officers suggest that frustration over salaries is costing the city experienced officers and also indicate that Mayor Richard Riordan's plan to pay them for working overtime and days off may not persuade many to stay. According to the exit interviews, conducted by the LAPD every time an officer leaves the force, many officers left to go to work for departments that would offer them a better overall contract--not merely overtime pay or pension benefits.

Coach Mike D'Antoni, along with General Manager Mitch Kupchak, met with the team's players over the past 48 hours for exit interviews at the Lakers' practice facility. The job status of D'Antoni, who is under contract for next season, wasn't discussed. "We haven't had a meeting yet," said D'Antoni.  "We're off for Easter vacation, and then we'll probably get together sometime [after]. " The Lakers finished with a 27-55 record after an NBA-high 319 player games missed due to injury, including Kobe Bryant, who made just six appearances, dealing with Achilles and knee issues.

Dear Karen: I get many notices telling me to renew my business documents. Are these scams? Answer: This is a common trick targeting small businesses that scammers hope are too busy or disorganized to keep track of renewals. Phishing schemes, which involve official-looking letters or e-mails, may claim that you owe money, are getting a refund or are about to be audited. Never send money or your financial account numbers in response to any of these solicitations. Pay your bills through official channels; you do not need to hire anyone to do it for you. And look at the fine print: If something says, "This is not an official government document," toss it. Get feedback in exit interviews Dear Karen: How can we keep our employees from leaving for jobs at bigger companies?

Despite prodding from friends, Phi Tran decided not to wear a tie to his interview. He went for the no-collar gray shirt, charcoal dress-coat look. After all, Tran wanted to show his artistic self. His attire might have been laid-back, but Tran admitted it was an effort to hide his nervousness. He appeared calm as he shook hands with each interviewer from the four-member panel he was about to face. And then, the questions began: "What work are you most proud of?

You can argue that the "exit" in the phrase "exit interviews" started a long time ago for the Clippers, and they practically had both feet out the door and bags packed by the time their last game rolled around, a 41-point loss to Oklahoma City on Wednesday. The official exit interviews between Clippers General Manager and Coach Mike Dunleavy and his players started Thursday at the team's Playa Vista training facility; the rest, including one with Baron Davis, will be held today.

After the scoreboard bulbs showing a playoff-eliminating loss were turned off at Honda Center on Sunday, more came to light Tuesday as Ducks players were processed through exit interviews. For one, the team was more banged up than advertised down the stretch. For another, veteran star Teemu Selanne might indeed be swayed to return for a 21st season because of the "unfinished business" after the first-round Stanley Cup playoffs loss to the Detroit Red Wings. Also, General Manager Bob Murray is bent on toughening his team after regular-season and playoff bullying incidents went unchecked, and admitted Tuesday that the Ducks were hamstrung late in the season by injuries.

Teemu Selanne will go home to Finland this summer, play some golf, rest, reflect and again determine whether he wants to return for a 21st season of professional hockey. The Ducks right wing emerged from exit interviews Tuesday at Honda Center and quickly said he needed more time to decide if he'll come back to a team for which he contributed 12 goals and 12 assists on the No. 2 line during the regular season. Selanne, an unrestricted free agent, said that until he hears differently from Ducks officials, starting with General Manager Bob Murray, he's under the assumption the team will let him decide whether he wants a roster spot in what would be his 15th season as a Duck.

I so wish I could watch Chris Paul continue to play basketball and show everyone what a mighty competitor he is. But I fear the absolute worst. One more Clippers collapse, and that appears to be a certainty come Friday, and the basketball season is over. And you know what that means? We have to start paying attention to the Dodgers and Angels. Or worse. Icing. The NBA playoffs were not about winning a championship, but getting us deep into June without having to watch Joe Blanton pitch or listening to Charley Steiner describe an underachieving team's performance.

David Dreier was 26, still living in a dorm at Claremont McKenna College and working as a college administrator, when he ran for Congress the first time, in 1978. He lost then but never thereafter. Sixteen times, Dreier was elected to the House of Representatives from a San Gabriel Valley/San Bernardino County district. He became the youngest-ever chairman of the Rules Committee, mastering the machinery of the House. But in February, he announced he would not seek reelection. He leaves behind a sharply redrawn district, and a Congress he insists is not so awfully different from the one he entered more than half his life ago. You went to Washington in the "Ronald Reagan Class of 1980.

The journey began a few days after the Lakers were embarrassed last June 17 by the Boston Celtics in Game 6 of the NBA Finals, a 39-point loss that was the second-worst in a championship clincher. The next regular season was about four months away, but the Lakers set in motion plans for what would become the team's best regular-season record since the 1999-2000 season and third-best in franchise history. After the Lakers returned from Boston defeated and humiliated by their rival, Coach Phil Jackson had exit interviews with his players to talk about the 2007-08 season, the postseason and about going forward for 2008-09.
