UCLA defensive end Owamagbe Odighizuwa could sit out the 2013 season after surgery on his right hip Tuesday. UCLA Coach Jim Mora feared he had lost the sophomore defensive lineman for the season, but doctors found that the damage wasn't as extensive as previously believed. Owamagbe had a frayed rotator cuff in his hip, and Mora was unsure of the timetable for his return. Odighizuwa, who will be a junior this fall, underwent surgery on his left hip during the off-season and did not participate in spring practice.

Hip, hip, hooray for Austria for standing up to Jewish propaganda in electing Kurt Waldheim. I hope now we will look into the criminal past of the leaders of the Jewish entity in Palestine as well. Will Menachem Begin be barred from entering the United States, too? ANDRE NICOLAI Carlsbad

The season is officially over for Jerry Hairston Jr., the Dodgers' utility player extraordinaire. The Dodgers announced after Wednesday's game that Hairston will have surgery on his left hip sometime in the next two weeks. Hairston has been on the disabled list since Aug. 13 with what the Dodgers initially called an inflamed hip. He did not respond to an anti-inflammatory injection last week. Head trainer Sue Falsone said Tuesday that Hairston would likely be examined by a couple more hip specialists before the exact nature of his potential surgery was determined, but it would likely involve an arthroscopic procedure similar to what is more commonly performed on shoulders.

Some comments on Nina J. Easton's July 30 article about the Ron Howard's film "Parenthood," which, according to the headline, "reflects the movies' latest discovery: kids and families." Brian Grazer, Howard's partner in Imagine Films, is quoted as saying: "Now being hip is being a responsible dad. . . . It's hip to have substance." Hip? He makes child rearing sound like the latest dance step. 'Hip to have substance" now? Does that mean that a short time ago it was "hip to be superficial"?

I enjoyed Geoff Boucher's piece on Gary Calamar ["Music Man Who Sets the Mood," Nov. 23]. I especially love the music on "Cold Case," which often uses many very hip selections. I believe it was the very first episode that used Gene Pitney's "Town Without Pity," which I've always liked. I've been a gigging musician since 1960, and I backed Pitney for a weekend in Milwaukee in 1963. Gary E. Myers Downey

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Clayton Kershaw survived a minor scare in the first game of the Dodgers' doubleheader against the Washington Nationals on Wednesday, as he was hit on the side of the head by a fragment of Hanley Ramirez's shattered bat. The incident occurred in the third inning, when Ramirez singled to right field. Kershaw was sitting in the Dodgers' dugout. Kershaw, who is sidelined with a hip injury, was said to be fine. “I have ruled out the ear surgery,” Manager Don Mattingly said, smiling.
