ARLINGTON, Wash. - Danger and uncertainty hang like a pall over the small towns along the Stillaguamish River. The mudslide that tore across State Route 530 - leaving nearly a square mile of debris and slicing a scar in the hillside taller than the Washington Monument - threatened to continue moving Monday. Search-and-rescue teams equipped with sonar, hovercraft and dogs were pulled back from the hardest-hit area for two hours out of fear that they too might become casualties of Saturday's deadly slide.

Since 1946, the San Diego Museum of Art has owned an appealing vision of happy prosperity: Frans Hals' 1630s painting of a plump, rosy-cheeked Dutch merchant whose expression and body language exude confidence, security and bonhomie. In the early 1990s, on one of his infrequent visits to Los Angeles from Europe, Bernard Goodman asked his son, Simon, to take him to see it. Standing in front of the portrait of Isaac Abrahamsz Massa, Bernard for the first time permitted a crack in what his son calls "the brick wall of silence" that had confronted him and his older brother, Nick, all their lives.

Doc Rivers likes to give a pep talk to his son Austin before their teams play each other. "Well, I tell him to turn it over, to foul," the elder Rivers joked Wednesday evening. There's also a preferred moment for the Clippers coach to deliver his message to the second-year guard for the New Orleans Pelicans. "I tried to time my call right when I thought he was sleeping to wake him up," Doc said. All kidding aside, the matchup produces more cringe-worthy moments for the father than the son. "It's kind of weird for him to scout me," Austin said before the Pelicans played the Clippers at Staples Center, "because he has to tell people what I don't do well and I do well.

C'mon, we all knew that was coming, didn't we? In a twist about as surprising as the news that Andy Kaufman is, in fact, still dead, it turns out that Mama Pope is still alive, if not exactly well. In the closing seconds of Thursday's “Scandal,” Rowan pays a visit to his spouse-prisoner, who's living in some kind of dank underground cell -- just one of the many bunkers in this most paranoid of shows. It's predictably unpredictable in that way that “Scandal” is, a development that caps off an episode in which Olivia's unfolding back story takes a backseat to Mellie.

A man and his son have been arrested after allegedly kidnapping his ex-wife and forcing her to undergo an exorcism in Stockton. Jose Magana-Farias, 42 and his son, Victor Farias, 20, arranged to meet with his ex-wife and mother of the son at a Wal-Mart in north Stockton on Saturday under the pretense of trying to make the marriage work, San Joaquin sheriff's Lt. Mike Jones told KCRA-TV. But after getting into the car, the men allegedly picked up two priests before forcing the woman to undergo an exorcism, Jones said.
