A look at two of the top high school football games Friday. Santa Ana Mater Dei (7-1, 2-1) at Bellflower St. John Bosco (8-0, 3-0), 7:30 p.m. (Fox Sports West): This Trinity League game has been marked on many calendars as a must-see game. Mater Dei was upset by Santa Margarita, 16-7, last week, but the Monarchs usually play well in an underdog role. Receivers-defensive backs Jonathan Lockett and Ben Humphreys will be turned loose against St. John Bosco's many weapons. St. John Bosco's offense hasn't been held to fewer than 24 points all season.

A federal judge Monday dismissed a lawsuit by O.J. Simpson demanding telephone records that he claims can prove he did not murder ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend, Ronald L. Goldman. U.S. District Judge Dean D. Pregerson said the former football star's suit should not have been filed in federal court. "I think your lawsuit borders on the frivolous," Pregerson told Simpson attorney Douglas E. McCann, apparently referring to his claim that federal civil rights laws were being violated.

As if having Gardena Serra, West Hills Chaminade and Los Angeles Cathedral together didn't make the Mission League strong enough in football this fall, beware of La Canada St. Francis. With 15 starters back, the Golden Knights will certainly be able to play with the big three. They went 4-1 in the Rio Mesa tournament last weekend, but standout sophomore receiver Dylan Crawford suffered a broken jaw (yes, these passing tournaments get physical). Coach Jim Bonds is has been more than pleased with the improvement of 6-foot-3 senior quarterback Ty Gangi, who was the backup to Jared Lebowitz last season.

The commanding officer of a $1-billion warship that ran aground along the coast of Honolulu has been relieved of duty, the Navy said. Rear Adm. Dixon R. Smith, commander of Naval Surface Group Middle Pacific, relieved Capt. John Carroll of his duties pending the results of an investigation into Thursday's incident. Carroll had taken command of the guided missile cruiser Port Royal in October. The Navy on Monday freed the vessel, which ran aground while offloading sailors, contractors and shipyard workers.

Turn-of-the-century homes and old oak trees give Long Beach's Carroll Park the feel of another time. The curving streets serve as a barrier to the outside world, deterring traffic and the noise and bustle it brings. This quiet historic district began as an Irishman's desire to build a community in a temperate climate in such a way that he could shield his young daughter, who had health issues, from the dust of horse-drawn carriages. Beginnings California bungalows, Craftsman chalets, Colonial Revival-style homes and Spanish/Mediterranean Revival homes are among the architectural styles represented in Carroll Park.

The course of true love does not run smooth, at least not most of the time in "The Rivals," Richard Brinsley Sheridan's 1775 comic gem playing at Lamb's Players Theatre through March 30. But, since this is comedy, not tragedy, the fault for that lies not in the fates, but in the lovers themselves. Their deceptions and delusions make them their own worst enemies in reaching their hearts' desires.

The pocket square, that flourish of breast-pocket plumage that once belonged to the old school, has become a sartorial signature for a whole new generation of men, from the Hollywood celebrities and folk rock musicians who walk red carpets and grace magazine covers, to NFL players and the average guy on the street. At a pre-Super Bowl news conference in New Orleans, it was Baltimore Ravens' linebacker Terrell Suggs' suit, tie and pocket square ensemble that earned honorable mention in media reports.

John Shannon's "Dangerous Games" is that rara avis -- a beautifully plotted, character-rich crime novel, both hard-edged and humorous, that is as spot-on in portraying today's Southern California as Raymond Chandler's books were in his day, while paying considerably more attention to the area's ethnic neighborhoods.

The visible body count in Denise Hamilton's "Sugar Skull" is relatively limited; the traditional unities of place, time and action are only slightly stretched; but the lust, greed and turmoil are exhilarating. Vincent Chevalier, a sound engineer, breaks through the security of the Los Angeles Times to seek reporter Eve Diamond's help in locating his 15-year-old daughter, Isabel, who has disappeared from home.

"What are you reading?" the errant husband asks his unsuspecting wife in "A Pure Clear Light," Madeleine St. John's novel of love, faith and infidelity. Flora, the wife, is reading a novel. "What's it about?" Simon, the husband, politely inquires. "Adultery," she replies. "It was remarkable how, with his head swimming--as if a great red wave had suddenly engulfed it--he was able to converse as if nothing . . . were amiss. Once you've had the education, the words simply speak themselves.
