By all rights, there should have been an air of desperation or defeat around English band Gomez at the House of Blues on Monday. More than six years after winning Britain's Mercury Music Prize for its debut album, "Bring It On," the group has had little impact in record sales, with four full albums plus other collections, and now is without a recording contract.

Former UCLA All-American pitcher Gerrit Cole, in his second season with the Pittsburgh Pirates, took exception to Milwaukee Brewers center fielder Carlos Gomez flipping his bat after connecting for what turned out to be a triple on Sunday, igniting a benches-clearing brawl that led to three ejections. Gomez and Pirates outfielder Travis Snider were ejected as was Pirates bench coach Jerry Narron. Gomez's shot to deep center field came with two outs in the third inning. As Cole headed back to the mound after collecting the ball from third baseman Josh Harrison, he appeared to have a few words for Gomez about the posturing at home plate as the ball headed toward the wall.

Gomez is a British band, but its roots-inspired rock sounded so American on Friday at the John Anson Ford Theatre, an unsuspecting listener might have guessed the sextet was from California, or perhaps upstate New York. Having already conquered its native land with a pair of albums, the low-key young band is poised to continue the grand U.K. tradition of exciting Americans with a fresh spin on our own traditional music.

Colton attorney Eloise Gomez Reyes has become the first candidate to send campaign mailers in the seven-way race for an open Inland Empire congressional seat. Over the weekend, Reyes, one of four Democrats vying to replacing retiring Rep. Gary Miller (R-Rancho Cucamonga), sent a mailer to likely voters detailing her childhood in the Inland Empire. It features what she describes as her close-knit, working-class family and describes how she worked to put herself through college and law school.

Second of two parts In San Antonio, the Catholic Church has long been a political force, often providing a voice to poor neighborhoods that can feel like an entirely different metropolis from the upscale communities in the north end of town. "It's like you need a passport to go from one side to the other," said Father Virgil Elizondo, a San Antonio vicar. For a quarter-century, the archbishop was Patrick Fernandez Flores, whose remarkable journey -- he was the seventh child of migrant farmworkers and a high school dropout -- resonated deeply.

Tiny 10-day-old Hunter Carrillo lay sedated on an elevated bed at Children's Hospital Los Angeles, hooked to a massive machine taking the place of his heart, lungs and kidneys. His parents, Tami and Joe, hovered nervously nearby. Every few minutes, Tami Carrillo carefully stepped around the tangle of cords and monitors to get a closer look at her newborn son and to briefly hold his fingers. For nearly a week, the Carrillos have watched as a team of doctors, nurses, respiratory therapists, cardiologists and surgeons worked around-the-clock, helping Hunter recover from an infection that caused him to stop breathing and his heart to stop pumping.

In a homily stressing the need for immigration reform, Archbishop José Gomez of Los Angeles said Sunday that immigration is not only a political issue, but also a spiritual one that is at the root of what it means to be a Catholic. The Mass was part of a nationwide effort by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops to show Congress that there is broad support in the Catholic community for legislation that would include a path to citizenship for the estimated 11 million men, women and children who are in the country illegally.

A homeless man convicted of trespassing at Selena Gomez's home was charged Monday with stalking and violating a court order to stay away from the former Disney star. The charges filed against Che Cruz come just days after he pleaded no contest to trespassing at Gomez's home, after which he was sentenced to 45 days in Los Angeles County jail and ordered to stay away from the star's home. Cruz, 20, was arrested March 30 inside a bathroom of a guest house on the property being purchased by Gomez, 21, authorities said.

Within hours after getting out of jail for trespassing at singer Selena Gomez's Calabasas  home, a homeless man returned to the property on Friday and was arrested again, Los Angeles County sheriff's officials said. Authorities say Che Cruz, 20,  violated the specific orders of a judge earlier this week to stay away from the singer. Cruz was arrested on suspicion of trespassing, sheriff's officials say. His arrest came two days after he was sentenced to 45 days in jail and three years' probation for entering Gomez's guest house bathroom on Sunday.

A man was arrested Friday after allegedly jumping the fence at Selena Gomez's  Calabasas home, Los Angeles County sheriff's officials said. The man was not immediately identified, but was seen being handcuffed and led away by deputies. The arrest came two days after a homeless man found in the performer's guest house bathroom on March 30 was convicted of trespassing and sentenced to 45 days in jail. That man, 20-year-old Che Cruz, was released from jail early Friday. Cruz pleaded no contest in his initial court appearance to one misdemeanor count of unauthorized entry of a dwelling house, said L.A. County Deputy Dist.

It is a mile over a rough and stony road from our house to Gomez's store at La Bocana, but we walk it at least once on every visit. We feel obliged to reassert our ties to the patriarch. When we topped the hill and the store came into view, I realized we might be in trouble. I saw Gomez's dogs spring to life from the store's porch and fling themselves toward us. There was pure fury in their attack--five of them, coming toward us like wild dogs attacking prey.

Emerging from the chaos at the start of the Olympic marathon, Polin Belisle of Burbank sprinted to the front of the pack, running shoulder to shoulder with some of the world's best distance runners for nearly a mile. An improbable achievement for Belisle, it all seemed too good to be true. It was. Belisle was not supposed to be in the marathon. He wasn't even supposed to be in the Olympics.

Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez, together again? Well, it seems they were for a couple of hours Friday morning in Texas. Just days after Bieber posted an Oscar-night photo of ex-girlfriend Gomez on Instagram , captioning it "Most elegant princess in the world," the two were caught on camera leaving a perfume store in downtown McAllen, Texas. That after hitting up a Starbucks and Don Pepe's Mexican restaurant, where according to south Texas newspaper the Monitor they spent $153.

Is Justin Bieber longing for simpler times? The off-the-rails pop star on Monday posted to Instagram a photo montage of ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez, taken upon her arrival at the Vanity Fair bash Sunday after the Oscars. "Most elegant princess in the world," he captioned it . Of course what pops to mind is a previous Vanity Fair arrival shot - one taken in 2011 - that showed Bieber and Gomez, then 17 and 18, respectively, together in public as a couple for pretty much the first time.
