Jim Campbell received the kinds of honors Thursday that often go to public heroes who risk their lives to help others. Campbell, a Lancaster carpenter, went to a luncheon, accepted several framed plaques and endured repeated handclasps with public officials--all because he stopped on his way to work last Jan. 30 and aided three people trapped in an overturned car. What Jim Campbell did not expect for his brief heroism was a lawsuit.

"Presentism: Light as Material" at YoungProjects is first and foremost a visual experience. The work by a dozen artists has plenty of conceptual heft and emotional resonance, but stakes its primary claim on our attention through optical means. This used to be a given in art, but for many decades now it's been just another option on the strategic menu. "Presentism" awakens a wistful gratitude for the direct sensual hit. The show, intended to complement the James Turrell retrospective recently closed at LACMA, induces a state of wonder that often feels primal, inversely related to the sophistication of the technology used to achieve it. Most of the pieces, whether videos, projections, or light-driven sculptural installations, reverberate in the body with a distilled, low-tech purity.

The Williamson gallery of Pasadena's Art Center College of Design currently houses an intriguing exhibition with the rather long title "Memory, Reflection and Transformation, Reactive Works by Jim Campbell." The hot potato in that little word-stew is certainly "reactive." If we respond one way to this work, it's a dud. Choose an equally available alternate and it's quite wonderful. Campbell is not an artist of the familiar kind. Based in San Francisco, he's just a hair over 40.

St. Louis rookie Jim Campbell gets his first face-to-face opportunity to show up the Mighty Ducks tonight. Not that his statistics haven't already made them look as if they made a mistake. Campbell, 23, who wasn't re-signed by the Ducks after scoring two goals in 16 games for them last season, has eight goals and 15 points in 19 games for the Blues and ranks among the NHL's top rookies. He was also leading the league in game-winning goals with four.

Paul Kariya's return figures to boost the Ducks' paltry offense. But while the Ducks are wondering why they couldn't score more than 2.18 goals a game without him, they have to stomach seeing a former Duck prospect among the NHL's top 10 goal-scorers. The Ducks didn't re-sign center Jim Campbell after last season. Now he's the leading goal-scorer for the St. Louis Blues, with six goals in 11 games. What's more, Campbell is tied for first in the league with three game-winning goals.

Los Angeles City Councilman Joel Wachs said Monday he will seek to have the city provide the legal defense for a Lancaster carpenter who is being sued as a result of his efforts to help three people escape from an overturned car last January. Wachs said he will introduce a City Council motion today to have the city defend Jim Campbell, 31, who joined a Los Angeles police motorcycle officer last Jan. 30 to aid a pregnant woman, her husband and a teen-age cousin.

Some mistakes are content to exist quietly. Others shout. Jim Campbell, the unwanted Duck who has become one of the leading rookies in the NHL for the St. Louis Blues, made his point politely but emphatically Sunday when he scored what proved to be the winning goal in St. Louis' 4-2 victory over the Mighty Ducks in front of 14,853. "That was perfect," the baby-faced Campbell said in a Kiel Center hallway as television cameramen lined up for interviews.

The Mighty Ducks made their first trade of the season Sunday, acquiring minor-league center Jim Campbell from Montreal for defenseman Robert Dirk. Dirk became expendable after the Ducks picked up defenseman Fredrik Olausson on waivers from Edmonton on Tuesday. Campbell, 22, will be assigned to the Ducks' minor-league affiliate in Baltimore. He had 28 goals and 51 points in 44 games with Montreal's minor-league team.

June 5, 1988 | Bill Blum, Blum is a Los Angeles attorney specializing in criminal and constitutional law
As heinous crimes go, the murders of Houston attorney James (Snake) Campbell and his wife Virginia were coolly efficient. In the sultry predawn hours of June 10, 1982, a masked figure entered the Campbell home through an open downstairs window, crept silently into the master bedroom and methodically extinguished the lives of his victims with six shots from an automatic pistol.
