As the former co-leader of the seminal '80s L.A. band X, John Doe is something of an icon in the music world. Though the alternative rock group has long since disbanded, Doe still performs in clubs around the country with a group he calls the John Doe Thing. But in the last 10 years, he's also made a name for himself as an actor in such films as "Salvador," "Forces of Nature' and "Touch." His latest film is "Sugar Town," Allison Anders and Kurt Voss' indie satire about the current L.A.

The last time Shane and Dane Valdez saw Calvary Chapel compete in a dual meet was 5 1/2 years ago. So when the former Eagle standouts came back to lend a hand to their former high school coach this season, both agreed it was great to be back, but also just a little bit strange. "A lot of things have changed. The people I knew are gone and I really don't know that many who are here now," Shane Valdez said. "It was kind of weird coming back, but it was also exciting."

Those who preferred Swept Overboard over Forest Camp in the $107,200 San Miguel Stakes Saturday at Santa Anita were happy about the outcome. How Swept Overboard won for the second time in three starts was the surprising part of the Grade III sprint. Expected to be in front from the outset, the gray son of End Sweep and 19-10 second choice in the field of six 3-year-olds broke slowly, seemingly hurting his chances of beating Del Mar Futurity winner and 7-10 favorite Forest Camp.

After UCLA and Arizona won their opening games here at TD Ameritrade Park, the Pac-12 has nearly guaranteed itself a participant in the championship series. The second-seeded Bruins (48-14) will face Arizona (44-17) in a winner's bracket game at 6 p.m. PDT Sunday on ESPN2.

Gray, who transformed a museum devoted to the legacy of film and recording star Gene Autry into an intercultural history center with a broad view of the term "Westerner," will announce his retirement Tuesday as president of the Autry National Center of the American West. Opened in 1988 as the Gene Autry Western Heritage Museum, the institution evolved over Gray's 11-year tenure into the Museum of the American West and merged with the Southwest Museum of the American Indian in 2003.

It did not figure that Hoover High School would beat perennial Central League power Lincoln last Friday. After all, Lincoln was undefeated and had dominated its opponents in its first seven games, outscoring them, 358-35. There was also the matter of history. Lincoln had not lost to Hoover since 1970. John Roots, a senior at Hoover, was unfazed by Lincoln's reputation. Roots, The Times' Player of the Week, caught a pass for a touchdown and intercepted two passes in Hoover's 21-20 victory.

Steve Carnes resigned Wednesday as Leuzinger High's football coach, thus ending one of the most successful coaching reigns in South Bay history. Carnes, who took over the program in 1984, guided the Olympians to seven playoff appearances, four league titles and a CIF championship during his seven seasons as coach. His teams never finished lower than third in league play. Even with that success, though, Carnes says he suffered from burnout.
