Dodgers co-owner Peter Guber said Wednesday he has no interest in buying the Oakland Athletics. The East Bay Express reported Wednesday that Guber and his ownership partner in the Golden State Warriors, Joe Lacob, lead an investment group exploring the possibility of buying the A's and building a ballpark in Oakland. "Absolutely not true," Guber told The Times. "100% not true. " Guber declined comment about whether Lacob might be interested but called it "categorically incorrect" to say he might be. "I have not had any conversations with the league or any of the owners about buying the team," Guber said.

ARCHITECT John Fisher has always loved actors. In fact, he married one and moved his family to Los Angeles in 1975 so his wife, the late Bonnie Johns, could pursue her craft. "When we got here," Fisher recalls, "the theater scene was mostly just the Mark Taper and all these non-Equity houses that were ad hoc transformations of some other kind of space. Besides that, there weren't many other theaters, though we sure tried to find them."

When people show up for midnight Mass on Friday night at Corpus Christi Church in Pacific Palisades, they will find the same Christmas Eve magic as always. Gauzy angels will be suspended on high as if flying over the congregation. Brightly lit Christmas trees will twinkle in the sanctuary. The story of the shepherds in the field learning of the birth of Jesus will still captivate: "And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them?" FOR THE RECORD: Midnight Mass: In some editions of the Dec. 24 LATExtra section, an article about the move by some Catholic churches to schedule traditional midnight Masses at earlier times contained a garbled quote.
