"Jerome," a standout at the 1998 AFI FilmFest, looks even better on a second viewing. When you know what's coming, you're better able to pay close attention to the high level of artistry and craftsmanship that went into it. Yet so taut and compelling is this picture, an example of mature, disciplined American independent filmmaking at its best, that you are caught up in it all over again.

Every traveler has weaknesses. With my wife, it's horses and shoe stores. Mine - well, one of mine -- is flatiron buildings. Put me in front of a three-sided building - tall, squat, immaculate or broken down -- and my jaw goes slack. Pretty soon my camera's memory is full and I'm circling the property, trying doorknobs. My name is Reynolds and if I'm getting the Latin right, I am a trivallumophile. The telltale moment came early this year, on a trip to Arizona. There I sat in Jerome, an old mining town that looks to be slowly sliding down a hardscabble hillside between Sedona and Flagstaff.

I want to clarify some issues regarding the Aug. 8 story on me, my uncle Jerome, cousin Leland and the Goldbaum family. I don't feel abandoned by Jerome. He is the reason why I'm here in California. He came to my rescue when I was in the projects in Texas and he paid for my schooling and housing when I first came to California. He filled the shoes of my father and that's why I look up to him. In my eyes, he's still my legal guardian. If I had a problem, I'd go to him first.

In Martha Brockenbrough's heaven, old people show too much leg playing leap frog, and the church choir covers classic rock. Clearly, Brockenbrough is not a follower of the New Testament. That's good news for heathen readers who will delight in the author's absurdist take on the after life in her devilishly riotous young adult debut, "Devine Intervention. " Steeped in the heavenly tropes of guardian angels and lost souls, "Devine Intervention" is a satire in the vein of Libba Bray's "Beauty Queens," only with a decidedly sacrilegious twist.

Sometimes, the difference between freshness and cliche is no more than a hair's breadth. What, after all, is fresher--or more predictable--than youth; what experience as unique--or as common--as falling in love? Francoise Sagan, who rocketed to fame in 1954 with her novel, "Bonjour Tristesse," has continued to tread the fine line between triteness and truthfulness.

The pickup basketball game at a North Hollywood park was being played by a group of hyperkinetic teen-agers on an unsanctioned holiday from school. One of them, a slender 17-year-old named Jerome, was being referred to as "Dominique." Like Atlanta's Dominique Wilkins, Jerome spends most of the game in flight. For every blocked shot and soaring rebound, he would hear his teammates shout, "Way to sky, Dominique!"

Shaquille O'Neal weighs 341 pounds and carries 16.3% body fat, he said Sunday. While he refused to concede that his feet would be more sound if he were lighter, O'Neal recently returned to daily weightlifting and a cardiovascular program that he believes could extend his career, or at least get him to the end of his contract. He scored 24 points in his second game back from the injured list, a 20-point win against the Toronto Raptors, then soaked his aching feet in a tub of milk and ice.

WASHINGTON - President Obama will nominate Stanley Fischer, the former head of the Bank of Israel, to be vice chair of the Federal Reserve, and also tapped two others for seats on the central bank's Board of Governors, the White House said.

Powell, a former Treasury official and investment banker who has served on the Fed board since 2012, will be renominated.

Maybe Jessica Jerome will finally realize what she has done come Monday morning. Jerome won the U.S. Olympic team trials in women's ski jumping over the weekend, qualifying to represent America as her sport makes its debut at the 2014 Sochi Winter Games. "It's pretty surreal," Jerome said on Sunday. "I'm glad I can take a breath now and focus on training to prepare for Sochi. " The U.S. is expected to have as many as four spots in Russia, so additional Americans can still qualify.

While L.A style might seem to be synonymous with denim and the contemporary clothing market, several Southern California-based, high-end footwear labels are creating lines that preserve the art and quality of luxury shoes. Newbark Created by sisters and renowned stylists Marjan (the Dixie Chicks) and Maryam (Heidi Klum, the Rolling Stones) Malakpour, Newbark refers to the phrase "my dogs are barking" - meaning tired feet. The women created the line as an alternative to the standard ballet flat, infusing inspiration from Moroccan flats and 1920s men's slippers.

At the center of "Passion," the new psychosexual thriller from master manipulator Brian De Palma, is a split-screen sequence featuring a classic work of modern choreography alongside a highly choreographed murder. Occupying one half of the screen is a performance of Jerome Robbins' ballet "Afternoon of a Faun," set to the music of Claude Debussy. The modern ballet, which was created in 1953, is a pas de deux set in a rehearsal room . The spare production, in which a man and a woman approach and repel each other, is a ballet about the ballet, in much the same way as De Palma's movies have always been about the movies.

The railbirds. They arrive early at Hollywood Park on Breeders' Cup day, staking out their favorite positions near the rail, getting into the rhythm of the day, sniffing the air and the tout sheets for winners. They pay $2.75 to get in, and if they're lucky, they get a free Breeders' Cup sweater-vest before the supply mysteriously runs out. They have come to bet the big one, but they don't often win. Somebody has to pay the jocks and horses and program vendors and winners.

CLEVELAND  - It happened so fast, like one of those summer thunderstorms that can plunge a brilliant Midwest afternoon into darkness. Five runs ahead and 10 outs away from a three-game sweep in Progressive Field, Angels starter Jerome Williams collapsed within a span of 10 pitches in the sixth inning Sunday, and the Angels lost to the Cleveland Indians, 6-5. "It was kind of a shock, really," catcher Hank Conger said. "You give up one hit and you're pretty much cruising through five innings.
