Hulk Hogan, arguably the most famous wrestler ever to grace the WWE's mat, is coming back to the ring. His first WWE appearance in seven years will be Monday, Feb. 24, on "Raw" on the USA Network and on "WWE Raw Backstage Pass" on the newly launched WWE Network. Monday is the first night of the subscription-based wrestling streaming video service. After that, he'll be back again. This time as host of WWE's "WrestleMania 30" to be held April 6 in New Orleans. The man who gave the world "Hulkamania" in the 1980s hasn't been part of a televised WWE event since 2007, when he appeared on the 15th anniversary of "Monday Night Raw. " While the 60-year-old semi-retired pro wrestler is billed only as host of the event, anyone want to guess if some outrageousness will transpire and the elder statesman of wrestling will be forced to jump in the ring?

Hogan said that after meeting separately Friday with Tyson and the alleged victim, Michael Devine, he concluded that there was insufficient evidence to prosecute the case. "I don't think the evidence shows he (Tyson) was guilty beyond a reasonable doubt," Hogan said.

Re "One Parent's Mission: Change the Curriculum," by Sue Larson Pascoe, Voices, Jan. 24: My younger son is in fourth grade this year; his brother is in fifth grade. And yes, once again we're studying the missions, which means we not only study the missions but the local natives who were displaced, converted and, maybe in some slight way, "saved" by those early missionaries (when one considers how the Eastern states did their best to annihilate the Native Americans they encountered).

At the time of its occurrence, the Vietnam War was generally regarded as a shameful, horrible fiasco. Today (witness "Platoon," et al.), the war is viewed in retrospect as having engendered its participants with a certain tragic-heroic nobility. It is a tribute to the human spirit that only pleasant memories perrsist. I look forward to the day when we all remember the Vietnam War as actually having been fun.

Re "Local Travel Pioneer Helped Put Hawaii on Vacation Map," Aug. 1. I liked this article but am surprised that it didn't mention [Ed] Hogan's recent donation of Gardens of the World in Thousand Oaks. Also that his new Lake Sherwood home has been specifically designed to accommodate large group fund-raisers for nonprofit organizations. This world needs more people like the Hogans!

Hogan completed 12 of 19 passes for 123 yards and also rushed for 54 yards in seven carries. “I was happy with myself,” he said Friday. “Obviously, there were throws that I would have liked to have made. “Certainly near the end of the game I remember we could have put it out of reach, but that's stuff that you can learn from and it's going to be so nice to be on that same field this year and be able to hit those throws again and kind of get a second chance.” Hogan, a junior from Virginia, is looking forward to the Cardinal's New Year's Day matchup against Michigan State in the 100th Rose Bowl game.

There have been few games like this for UCLA in the last decade. The ninth-ranked Bruins face No. 13 Stanford in Palo Alto. Staff writer Chris Foster examines the story lines. Quarterback A UCLA's Brett Hundley had 410 yards passing against California last week, and it wasn't close to being his best overall performance.
