PHOENIX -- Showers forced the Dodgers to practice indoors Wednesday. Instead of taking live batting practice on the rain-soaked field, hitters took their swings in the covered batting cages. The pitchers who were scheduled to throw, including Chad Billingsley and Chris Capuano, threw as scheduled. Some other notes: The first major injury of the spring was sustained by Dodgers spokesman Joe Jareck, who is believed to have torn his hamstring trying to leg out a triple in an employee softball game.

I am writing to accent the warning about summer camping at Joshua Tree National Park ("Lying Low in the Desert," Oct. 8). My companion, from the Mideast, was confident about a short trip there this year. But the heat overwhelmed us both after a day and banished us to the air-conditioned indoors for the duration.

WASHINGTON - Greetings from the nation's capital, where winter seems to be firmly entrenched even though spring officially began last week. It's snowing here, and accumulations of two to four inches are expected to build until the snow tapers off Tuesday evening. The snow isn't sticking on roads and streets but it is slowing traffic locally. The Kings arrived early Tuesday morning from Philadelphia, boarding a train after their 3-2 victory over the Flyers. Because of their arrival in the wee hours, they canceled their morning skate.

Five feisty pelicans flapped their wings in protest and faced off Thursday with workers at the Bronx Zoo who were trying to move the birds indoors for the winter. The zookeepers won. The scene was Cope Lake at the zoo, where the five birds spend the milder months of the year until chilly weather dictates their move inside the Ostrich House. Four zookeepers rowed out onto the pond with giant nets to capture the birds.

Ginnie Ryder's attempt to ease her conscience by writing a fantasy tale of "Kitten Instinct" is disturbing and disgusting (Orange County Voices, Jan. 24). The kitten is dead because Ryder was negligent. Cats, like children, lack common sense. Cats are not outdoor animals. Cats have evolved completely dependent on humans for their care and protection. Many cats escape the dangers of outdoor life for a while, but so do people who drive in an unsafe manner or play with guns. Cats must be kept indoors at all times.

An indoor arena with tightly banked turns and an enthusiastic crowd is Eamonn Coghlan's phone booth. Outdoors, he's just another world-class miler, but when he's running indoors, there's a startling, Clark Kent-like transformation. The only man ever to run a sub-3:50 mile indoors, Coghlan is the world indoor mile record-holder at 3:49.78. Britain's Sebastian Coe holds the world outdoor record of 3:47.33, and Coghlan believes that Coe's record can be lowered--on an indoor track.

BOSTON - As family members called on him to surrender, a 19-year-old college student remained on the run Friday as thousands of police armed with rifles and driving armored vehicles combed the nearly deserted streets of a region on virtual lockdown. Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, one of a pair of ethnic Chechen brothers who came to the United States a decade ago, has been in flight since a shootout with police in the early hours of Friday. His brother, Tamerlan, 26, was killed in the confrontation.

The Minneapolis Metrodome died suddenly Sunday, when its roof collapsed under the weight of too much snow. The big, ridiculous balloon/metaphor was only 28. "Frankly, I'm glad to see it go," said Santa Claus, a tackle for the Minnesota Vikings in the 1960s, when the team played outdoors. "The place stank like reindeer. " But seriously, folks, wasn't what happened Sunday just God's way of saying that real Vikings play football outdoors? I hope you saw the video of the roof collapse.

"I felt a creative spirit the first time I walked in this house," says Rina Welles of the 1921 Santa Monica house that was once home to renowned German playwright Bertolt Brecht. "I liked the energy. " The foursquare house was where Brecht penned "The Caucasian Chalk Circle" and other plays during the 1940s. Today the house is one component in a multigenerational family compound for Welles, husband David Golubchik, her mother, Joanna, and their children, Leah, 10, and Alek, 6. The home, which has been renovated and complemented by a new addition by Dub Studios , also stands as a success story for preserving cultural landmarks in fresh and inviting ways.

If you're a city person, you might only have read of chamber pots, an inconvenient though useful contraption from an earlier time. In the part of Texas where I grew up, the term "chamber pot" was a tad too genteel. We called these essentials "slop jars" or just "the pot. " Whatever you called it, I had to empty it. Our house sat on a slight rise facing busy Highway 31. The outhouse was back of the house, toward the woods, maybe 50 feet away. PHOTOS: 5 Senate women to watch in 2014 It was tricky running with the pot to the outhouse.

Will the Dodger Stadium hangover merely be a 72-hour condition or can the Ducks manage to shake the malaise before it lingers? The Ducks started slowly, and sloppily, not showing the necessary urgency until falling behind by three goals in the third period. Their offensive verve eventually showed up - as expected - but it was that age-old story of a too late arrival. The Wild protected the lead and held on to beat Anaheim, 4-2, on Tuesday night at Honda Center. It was only the second time the Ducks have lost in regulation at home this season, the first time was a 3-2 loss to the Winnipeg Jets on Jan 21. Minnesota star Zach Parise, playing in his third game since returning from a foot injury, had a hand in three of the four goals, recording two assists and scoring on a nifty deflection to make it 3-1 at 6:35 of the third period.

Indoor tanning is a great way to get skin cancer - especially if you start young. People who use tanning beds, sunlamps or tanning booths before age 35 are up to 75% more likely to develop melanoma, and those who begin before 25 may double their risk of other types of skin cancer. So we are once again surprised to to find that indoor tanning remains popular with the young women whose fair skin makes them the most vulnerable to the harmful effects of ultraviolet radiation. The latest evidence comes from researchers at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

If you're traveling with a pet at San Diego International Airport, your four-footed friend can find a potty without having to go outside. The pet relief area inside Terminal 2 features fake grass and a faux fire hydrant as well as two deodorizers, a hand-washing area and free baggies too. "It's with our other restrooms, men's, women's, family and animals," airport spokeswoman Katie Jones says. Jones says San Diego is one of a handful of airports nationwide that have created pet relief places in post-security areas.

World on Wheels, the last full-fledged indoor roller skating rink in the city of Los Angeles, will hold its final lace-up Sunday night. For three decades, the Mid-City institution has won loyalists as an indoor amusement park, party venue, fitness center, haven for young people and hip-hop incubator. It has even played matchmaker. But a bankruptcy proceeding, a change in ownership and evolving neighborhood tastes have conspired to end its free-wheeling days. "It's like losing a member of the family," said Nelson Bracamonte, 55, a weekly regular at the rink since its opening on Halloween 1981.

Hooliganism aside, I wonder if your editorial writer and reporter asked themselves: What's a person to do when the necessity to urinate strikes? Perhaps the D.A. did ask himself that question. Under the circumstances, the odds were very much on a confrontation and (Myron) Haag would have been much wiser to stay indoors even without the hindsight of the tragic outcome. ERIC HEATH, Oceanside

Inside a warehouse in Los Angeles, the cast of "All Together Now" partied in an artificial forest filled with fog and piercing music. In order to bring in numerous bands to provide the soundtrack for the film, director Alex Mirecki opted for a faux forest rather than shooting in the great outdoors. He said the controlled climate of the set guaranteed that bands wouldn't be rained out. In the film, Ron (played by Lou Taylor Pucci) hosts a party in the middle of the woods. As the night goes on, a hodgepodge of characters comes to the event and connects over the music, performed by bands Pedestrian Deposit, Night Control, Manicorn and Nice Face.

Captured: Boston bombing suspect "We were outside and heard them and grabbed the kids and ran inside," she said.
