Jim Nabors, beloved to audiences as TV's Gomer Pyle, has married Stan Cadwallader, his partner of 38 years. The wedding took place Jan. 15 in front of a judge at a Seattle hotel, said Hawaii News Now , which first reported the news Tuesday. Washington state legalized gay marriage in December "I'm not ashamed of people knowing. It's just that it was such a personal thing, I didn't tell anybody," said Nabors, 82, a resident of Honolulu. "I'm very happy that I've had a partner of 38 years, and I feel very blessed.

Mother's Day has come early at CBS: Its veteran comedy "How I Met Your Mother" will return next season - the final one for the series. The entire gang is set to return for the show's swan song. And patient viewers of the long-running comedy will finally learn the identity of the enigmatic mother in the title. CBS and 20th Century Fox TV made the news official Wednesday after much speculation about the show's fate. The series, from Carter Bays and Craig Thomas, premiered on CBS in September 2005 and is averaging about 10 million viewers per episode this season.

Sometimes, The Times' website is like the old “Wide World of Sports” -- you know, “spanning the globe to bring you the constant variety” -- of news. Why, just perusing it on Wednesday, I stumbled onto these tidbits:   1: Jim Nabors -- forever known to those of us of a certain age as Gomer Pyle -- not only is gay but has married his male partner of 38 years. And the great thing is, most people's reaction (beyond the younger folks' “Who the heck is Jim Nabors?”)

He walked into the empty theater, 35 years since he'd first walked around Mayberry, first pumped gas at Wally's, first chirped "Hey, Andy! Mornin' Aunt Bee." Would he, could he, still be Gomer? Go-llll-ly, shazam, surprise. It was Gomer. "How you been?" drawled Jim Nabors, greeting the musical crew he'd come to rehearse with Friday before staging his one-man show at the Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts.

Golllllllly! Six years after a successful liver transplant, Jim Nabors is happy, healthy and has just released a new double CD of inspirational music, "When He Spoke." Celebrating his 70th birthday this year, Nabors doesn't look much different than he did when he debuted in 1962 on the classic "The Andy Griffith Show" as Mayberry's endearing, optimistic Gomer Pyle. In 1964, CBS gave Nabors his own spinoff series, "Gomer Pyle, USMC," which was a ratings hit throughout its five-year run.

I just finished Brian Lowry's article on "Entertainment Tonight" and I want to thank him for bringing their methods to the attention of the viewing public (" 'Entertainment Tonight' and the Cult of Celebrity," March 7). I would like to make the public aware of one more aspect of the way that show works. On Jan. 13, they did a "Weekend Special" called "Whatever Happened to TV's Favorite Stars." They did stories giving updates on Jim Nabors, Ricardo Montalban and yours truly, to name a few. The story they did on me I found to be extremely offensive and inaccurate.

Jim Nabors slept here. The actor-singer, who gained fame as goober Gomer Pyle in his own comedy series (1964-72), once called this classic Bel-Air estate home. Almost every room in the Mediterranean mansion opens to a city-to-ocean view, and yet the house and its grounds are private. The landscaping, with antique brick pathways and sandstone retaining walls, helps to ensure seclusion. There is a courtyard with a fountain and a hidden lily pond with a wishing bridge.

Andy Griffith's death on Tuesday meant the most prominent cast member of the landmark "Andy Griffith Show" had finally departed. Costar Don Knotts preceded Griffith in death in 2006 and Frances Bavier (who played Aunt Bea) died in 1989. Many of Mayberry's older residents have been long gone, such as Floyd the barber (Howard McNear) in 1969 and Otis the drunk (Hal Smith) in 1994. But fans of "The Andy Griffith Show" can take heart that the streets of Mayberry haven't gone completely empty.

What was actor Jim Nabors' reaction to getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame? "Go-ol-ly!" he said Thursday, using the catch phrase of the hayseed Gomer Pyle he played on television for many years. Actresses Carol Burnett, Loni Anderson, Phyllis Diller and Florence Henderson joined about 75 fans crowded around the Hollywood Boulevard site for the unveiling of the 1,929th star.
