Loretta Sanchez (D-Garden Grove) has introduced a bill that would help the family of Santa Ana Police Department range master Joseph Boyd receive benefits--even though Boyd was a civilian working for the department and not a sworn officer when he died. "The tragedy to me is my dad was working on a really huge case," said Keith Boyd, a 32-year-old teacher in San Diego. "He was killed in the line of duty. . . .

In directing a play or musical from another era, too much faithfulness can sometimes be as damaging as too little. By slavishly adhering to every punctuation mark in a script, you may end up locking your staging into a state of utter irrelevance. In the bubbly Reprise! revival of "Damn Yankees," which opened Wednesday at UCLA's Freud Playhouse, Jason Alexander, in his first season as the company's artistic director, takes substantial liberties.

Boston Red Sox fans know the words well. "Damn Yankees" is something they've undoubtedly muttered a lot over the years and especially now, with their beloved team fighting the dastardly New York Yankees for the American League Championship. With the series as a backdrop, the timing for the Fullerton Civic Light Opera's "Damn Yankees" is close to ideal. Baseball is in the air, and director Rob Barron's appealing staging of Richard Adler and Jerry Ross' featherweight musical fits right in.

Who even knew Amoeba Music had a sea shanties section? But that's where Joe Boyd heads upon entering the cavernous Hollywood music store, right to that rack in the folk compilations bin, seeking out last year's "Rogue's Gallery" project of pirate and seafaring tunes put together by eclectic producer Hal Willner. "My taste is fundamentally arcane," he's already explained while sitting in a coffeehouse across the street a few minutes earlier. No kidding.

I applaud Record's article. As Record accurately points out, AIPAC is not representing the interests of Israel, or more importantly, the United States. On the contrary, it is hurting both. Its political clout is being misused. JOE BOYD Los Angeles

A baseball postseason in Washington is as rare as bipartisanship in that city. Hall of famer Walter Johnson got the Washington Nationals to the World Series in 1924 and 1925. But when was the last time a Washington team reached postseason? Why it was the Washington Senators in 1958. Of course, getting to the World Series required Satan's help. Joe Boyd, middle-aged Senators' fan, is transformed into Shoeless Joe Hardy by the Devil in the movie “Damn Yankees.” While he makes the hapless Senators a contender, Hardy sours on the deal and tries to use an escape clause.

The Police Department's shooting range master, responsible for weapons training, shot and killed himself Wednesday in what police described as a freak accident. Civilian employee Joseph Samuel Boyd, a former Marine with an extensive weapons background, was killed by a single shot to the neck as he examined an outlawed MAC-10, 9-millimeter assault weapon at the police firing range.

Any one-man crusade is likely to fail, but a rom-com character's war against sincerity is doomed from the start. Recently unemployed David (pastor-turned-actor Joe Boyd) has good reasons for being a Negative Nancy, and his aloofness earns him early triumphs over the omnipresent forces of perkiness and optimism. But writer-director Brad Wise's "A Strange Brand of Happy" is determined to make David experience the film's titular emotion: delight in the knowledge that fulfilling one's potential pleases God too. So along comes a lady ex machina in life coach Joyce (Christian singer Rebecca St. James, mugging her heart out)
