SACRAMENTO -- State Sen. Ed Hernandez (D-West Covina) portrayed Monday the shelving of his amendment to overturn the state's ban on affirmative action in higher education as an attempt to defuse the increasingly heated backlash the proposal has generated in recent weeks. "Given the scare tactics and misinformation used by certain groups opposed to SCA 5, we felt it was necessary to have a discussion based on facts and take the time to hear from experts on the challenges our public universities and colleges face with regards to diversity, as well as the implications for California's workforce and our overall competitiveness in a global economy," Hernandez told reporters at the Capitol.

Say this much for Padre pitcher Jimmy Jones in his tiff with Keith Hernandez Tuesday night. He tried. He pitched him inside on the knuckles. He pitched him out past the fingertips. The New York Met first baseman was so impressed that in his first two at-bats, he singled and doubled and drove in a run. Finally, in the fifth inning, Jones dispensed with ceremony. He stuck his knee in the side of the man's head. Left him face down in the first-base-line chalk. Knocked him out. Didn't work.

Jack Kerouac's encounter with a "Mexican girl" he calls Teresa, or Terry, takes up about 20 pages of his classic 1957 novel "On the Road. " He's at a bus station in Bakersfield when he first catches a glimpse of Terry, "the cutest little Mexican girl in slacks," with hair that was "long and lustrous black" and eyes that were "great big blue things with timidities inside. " Kerouac ends up spending two weeks with her. The point of the young writer's life is to keep moving, and when Kerouac takes one last look at Terry as he leaves California on his way back to New York, he knows he'll never see her again.

Francisco Hernandez was a fiercely independent man, refusing help from family and neighbors - even firing Meals on Wheels - as he moved into old age at his Mount Washington home. So it's not surprising that the 89-year-old World War II Purple Heart recipient was home alone with his bulldog, Nero, when a fire late Friday tore through the tiny cottage he lived in for the last 40 years. Hernandez's body was found Saturday among the charred remains of the structure that sits on a winding, narrow street in the 500 block of West Avenue 44. His dog survived the fire.

Flores, an attorney who has represented Hernandez, as it looks at $3,900 provided by Flores' law firm to Hernandez's campaign in 2009.

TUCSON - He held her in an upright position against his chest to keep her from drowning in her own blood and applied pressure to her head wound. It was then that Daniel Hernandez Jr. remembered a television show he watched when he was 10 years old. It was about brain injuries and he knew he had to keep Rep. Gabrielle Giffords engaged. He kept asking her questions, such as whether she knew she'd been shot. She'd reply with a squeeze of the hand, move two fingers or give a thumbs up. His actions on Jan. 8, 2011, helped save Giffords' life and thrust Hernandez, then a 20-year-old intern for the Arizona Democrat, into the national limelight.

A judge might impose a formal gag order in the murder case against former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez after his attorneys accused the state of allowing leaks they contend could jeopardize his right to a fair trial. At a hearing in Fall River (Mass.) Superior Court on Monday, defense attorney Michael Fee blamed prosecutors for out-of-court statements reported in the media that he says have tarnished the ex-player. "Mr. Hernandez is entitled to a fair trial," Fee told Judge Susan Garsh during the hourlong proceeding.

Why can't television newscasters and commentators at sports events, especially baseball games, learn to pronounce the names of Spanish-speaking persons correctly? Perhaps some of them learned in high school Spanish that words ending in "z" are accented on the last syllable; and since the printing of Spanish names in our newspapers is lacking in accent signs, they don't realize that most Spanish names ending in "ez" have an accent on other than the last syllable. For example, if they care and are sensitive enough, they would not pronounce: 1. Juarez as "WarEZ", but almost correctly as "WARez."

There are certain things art-comics creators are generally expected to do: Find a tone and stick to it, concentrate their efforts on one major work every few years, stay away from the trappings of genre fiction unless they're putting them in ironic quotation marks. Gilbert Hernandez, blessedly, has no interest in those sorts of expectations. In the early '80s, when he and his brothers were Southern California punks, they launched the long-running comic book "Love and Rockets" - a series that initially seemed extraordinary for not being genre fiction at least as much as it did for the startling originality of Los Bros Hernandez's visual and narrative styles.
