Aerial photographer Bill Dewey can never forget the exhilaration he felt on his first airplane ride as a boy, flying among the clouds high above the Borrego Desert. "The magic of flying is astonishing," said Dewey of that initial flight courtesy of his dad, a World War II U.S. Army pilot. That thrill has stayed with him as he parlayed his passion for flying and photography into a career capturing the ever-changing Southern California landscape from a bird's-eye view. His recent photos will be on view this Saturday through May 2 at Easton Gallery in Montecito.

Nobody got hurt. The Lakers didn't lose by 50. There are only three games left. These were reasons for the Lakers to celebrate a 112-95 loss Friday to Golden State at Staples Center. The season that won't ever end is down to a handful of days. Nobody's complaining. No crying. Tension was sucked out of this season a month ago, if not longer. BOX SCORE: Golden State 112, Lakers 95 There's a lot of losing, though, six in a row for the Lakers (25-54) after a late run fell short, extending their team record for losses in a season.

Kobe Bryant was annoyed. Really, really annoyed. The Lakers traded Steve Blake before the February deadline, immediately sending a dissatisfied Bryant to Twitter. He said he was "not cool" with the trade "AT ALL," hitting caps lock for effect and also calling Blake a "psycho competitor. " Blake is still appreciative two months later. He'll play with his new team, Golden State, against the Lakers in his return Friday to Staples Center. "Whenever you have support like that from a teammate, it feels great, especially from one of the greatest," Blake said in a phone interview.

California, the media like to tell us, faces an unprecedented fiscal crisis. The budget deficit is $40 billion and growing. The state is so short of cash that, within days, it may issue IOUs, rather than checks, to pay its bills. The Legislature, bitterly divided, seems unable to agree on a way out. The governor warns of "financial Armageddon." How should we prepare for apocalypse?

Steve Nash will play Saturday night against Golden State, his first game since Oct. 31. The Lakers point guard missed 24 games because of a small fracture in his lower left leg. With Steve Blake also sidelined by injury, the Lakers have had to go with Chris Duhon and Darius Morris as their point guards. Blake has started shooting after practices but is still out at least four more weeks as he rehabilitates after abdominal surgery. The Lakers have struggled with their lack of point-guard production, part of the reason for their 12-14 start.

Texas Gov. Rick Perry says that his swings through California to poach businesses work. As proof, Perry said Wednesday that California companies had created about 14,000 new jobs in Texas over the last two years. These Golden State companies, which number 60 in all, have expanded, relocated or moved jobs to Texas, Perry said. Eleven of the businesses have relocated their headquarters to the Lone Star State, including longtime Los Angeles-based Occidental Petroleum. PHOTOS: World's most expensive cities "As states continue to compete for jobs and investment, it's clear the formula for this success exists in red states," Perry said in a Wednesday statement.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Welcome to the Lakers. Enjoy the crossfire. Newcomers Kent Bazemore and MarShon Brooks went all of six days before the latest Lakers drama unfolded, indirectly bringing them into the battle of words between Pau Gasol and Lakers Coach Mike D'Antoni . Bazemore's take since being traded to the Lakers? Whoa. "It's been a long season, especially for them," he said. "They've been probably doing this all year. I don't get caught up in that stuff.

The wild, wild Western Conference is so nutty that the standings can't even be believed. The Clippers hold the No. 4 playoff seeding, five games behind conference-leading Oklahoma City. On track to receive the No. 5 seeding is Portland, which has a better record than the Clippers and is only four games behind the Thunder. Houston has the No. 3 seeding despite having the same record as the Trail Blazers. Say what? Say it's getting crowded in here. The Rockets have the edge on the Blazers because they've won two of three games against them.

Two straight games for newcomer Kent Bazemore -- two straight career highs. The Lakers traded Steve Blake for the second-year guard/forward on Wednesday (along with MarShon Brooks). On Sunday, Bazemore made the first start of his NBA career. In a loss to the Brooklyn Nets, Bazemore scored 17 points in 29 1/2 minutes.  In his first appearance with the Lakers, a win over the Boston Celtics, Bazemore chipped in 15 points off the bench in almost 33 1/2 minutes. How has Bazemore handled the transition from a sparsely used reserve with the Warriors to a full workload with the Lakers?

Kent Bazemore used to be known for two things. He was the guy with the comically over-the-top celebrations on the Golden State Warriors' bench, spinning his arms wildly or punching the air with his fists. He was also the rookie who found his car filled with popcorn as part of a prank last year. His basketball life has changed considerably in the span of a week. Bazemore, 24, keeps getting points and playing time with the Lakers, scoring a career-high 15 on Friday against Boston and upping it two days later with another career high, 17 points against Brooklyn.
