The dark and desperate days are over now for Kevin Greene--at least the dark and desperate Sundays when he had to line up against 300-pound monsters every down and sacrifice life, limb and sack total for the defensive system. Coach Chuck Knox has decided to move Greene back to left outside linebacker, away from the end spot he held last year, back to the position from which he averaged more than 15 sacks from 1988-90. Last year, as the right-side defensive end, he got three.

Based on his own version of the facts, lawyer R. Browne Greene failed to deal ethically with his clients in turning down a $2-million settlement offer in a case he ultimately lost, an expert witness testified Tuesday. Costa Mesa lawyer Garvin F. Shallenberger, a former president of the State Bar of California, appeared to provide the toughest testimony yet against Greene since jurors began hearing the case on March 11.

Picking up where they left off in February, the two teams in Super Bowl XLVIII, Seattle and Denver, open the 2014 NFL season with blockbuster games. The league released its schedule Wednesday, revealing the defending champion Seahawks will play host to Green Bay in the opener Thursday, Sept. 4, and Indianapolis will play at the Broncos in the opening Sunday night game. Packers-Seahawks is a rematch of a 2012 "Fail Mary" game won by Seattle on the final play, a controversial touchdown pass that from every camera angle looked to be an interception by Green Bay. Replacement officials called it a touchdown for the Seahawks, however, and that game proved to be the final straw that ended the officiating lockout.

The superpatriot militias now have Timothy McVeigh to add to Waco and Ruby Ridge as evidence of the evils of our government as opposed to the one they want. WILLIAM S. GREENE Granada Hills

I am aghast at the blatant exploitation of graffiti employed by Wells, Rich, Greene in its campaign for Herradura Tequila ("Graffiti Fills the Bill for Herradura Tequila," Sept. 5). The people at WRG obviously don't realize the problems faced by local residents in fighting the blight of graffiti, otherwise they wouldn't be pandering to the interests of their target audience. I hope the local ad industry will eschew this repugnant and trite device. The real bad boys here are Wells, Rich, Greene.

"Hunting Humans?" is archaic in thought and old in data. You should have stressed the work of the Mountain Lion Foundation and others in educating us how to live with our fellow creatures. Twenty verified attacks on humans since colonial times shows how little we have to fear from our last great predator. Kenyon B. De Greene Woodland Hills

Greene doesn't want us to cut funding for civil defense. She says, "We cannot allow politics to prevail over reason." I think that if we really could put reason first we'd cut all civil defense funds. She's talking about protecting Americans against the combined effects of 50,000 nuclear warheads. The next big war will be the explosive equivalent of 10,000 World War II's, all in an afternoon. I agree, 119 million civil defense dollars won't protect us from that. But will 119 billion?

Norma Basgall, in her Oct. 14 letter, exactly expressed my feelings regarding United Airlines and its $100 fee for changing ticket dates. I had a similar experience with United on Oct. 9. I had canceled my reservation for Oct. 11, and my travel agent suggested that I plead my case to them. My daughter had been diagnosed as possibly having spinal cancer. I wanted to stay home for her. The United representatives were rude and disinterested. They also charged me a $100 change fee. WENDY S. GREENE Tustin

After having grown up on the Monterey Peninsula, L.A. architect Polly Osborne couldn't help but take nature into consideration in her work. "It was all around me," Osborne says. So too were pioneers whose ideas would ripple down the history of green architecture. Will Shaw, one of the founders, with Ansel Adams, of Foundation for Environmental Design, was her stepfather. Lawrence Halprin, a revered elder of landscape architecture, and George Brook-Kothlow, architect of handmade houses, were friends of the family.

A Green Party candidate for secretary of state is planning to crash a debate Wednesday in Sacramento, after he and two other contenders were excluded from the event. This is oddly amusing for a couple of reasons. First, when has there ever been so much interest in the race for secretary of state? It's a job that largely involves overseeing election procedures and managing various business and political filings. Second, David Curtis, the Green Party candidate who was not invited to the debate, recently placed higher in a Field Poll voter survey than two other candidates who were invited to debate.

"We're the world's greatest Replacements cover band," Paul Westerberg cracked as his band took the stage Friday night at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. He may have been joking, but there was more than a little truth to his remark, in part because Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong would arrive a few songs later and take over vocal duties.  On the first day of the second weekend of the desert festival, a number of the marquee acts were seeking to recapture the magic of days gone by, including headliners Outkast.

WASHINGTON - The political attack ad that ran recently in Arizona had some familiar hallmarks of the genre, including a greedy villain who hogged sweets for himself and made children cry. But the bad guy, in this case, wasn't a fat-cat lobbyist or someone's political opponent. He was a solar-energy consumer. Solar, once almost universally regarded as a virtuous, if perhaps over-hyped, energy alternative, has now grown big enough to have enemies. The Koch brothers, anti-tax activist Grover Norquist and some of the nation's largest power companies have backed efforts in recent months to roll back state policies that favor green energy.

To understand the impact and influence Tyrone Green had on Joakim Noah, just go back to Noah's 2007 draft night. Wearing seersucker, a bow tie and an exuberant smile, Noah, minutes after he shook then-Commissioner David Stern's hand and walked offstage, ignored a question on live TV to get serious. “I just want to thank Mr. Green, who has been my mentor,” Noah said that night. “I love you to death, Mr. Green.” Green, an influential figure in New York youth basketball for 35 years, died unexpectedly last week at 63. Noah returned to practice Saturday after flying to New York for an excused bereavement leave to spend time with Green's family.

It's been more than 40 years since architects started embracing green design principles. Spurred by the environmental movement of the 1960s and 1970s, architects began to think about building homes that were more environmentally friendly. Today, green has become standard even as the term itself reaches saturation. Green features such as solar panels, low-flow shower heads and tankless water heaters, once considered cutting-edge, are now commonplace in Southern California. Nearly a quarter of all newly built homes in the U.S. last year were green, according to industry research firm McGraw Hill Construction.

Kevin Green, a Tustin man who was wrongly convicted of raping his pregnant wife and causing the death of their unborn daughter 20 years ago, on Tuesday settled a wrongful-death lawsuit filed by his ex-wife, who continued to hold him partially responsible for the crime. The settlement brings closure to a two-decade-long legal ordeal for Green, who was set free in 1996 after authorities linked the crime to another man.

Call it the Great Easter Egg Smackdown of 2014. Every time I write about hard-boiled eggs, I seem to get a flood of mail telling me, essentially, "You're an idiot, and you're doing it all wrong. " So this year I threw down the gauntlet. On our Daily Dish blog and on social media, I posted a challenge to all those hard-boiled naysayers: You tell me how you do it, and we'll give it a try. Not to get all smug, but my method won out again. Though I did pick up a couple of refinements along the way. (None of which is to say, however, that I am not an idiot; just that I can boil an egg.)

During the Q&A session of a Saturday panel at the L.A. Times Festival of Books, "The Fault In Our Stars," author John Green revealed two favorite lines that he's written. Both are from his first book, "Looking for Alaska. " The first is from the character Miles "Pudge" Halter feeling inadequate in the face of the girl he admires, Alaska Young: "If people were rain, I was drizzle and she was a hurricane. " The author revealed two additional secrets about that line. He almost cut it out of the final version of the text, thinking it was too cheesy, and the original version compared people to 'precipitation" instead of "rain.
