Most TV fans of a certain age know the answer to the question, "Who played the Lone Ranger?" Those who say Clayton Moore are correct, at least partially. There was another actor who played the Masked Man on "The Lone Ranger" TV series, temporarily replacing Moore in the title role for 52 episodes beginning in 1952. John Hart, 91, the handsome and athletic actor who also starred in the 1940s movie serial "Jack Armstrong: The All-American Boy" and the 1950s TV series "Hawkeye and the Last of the Mohicans," died Sunday at his home in Rosarito Beach in Baja California, said his wife, Beryl.

WASHINGTON -- When $50 billion in disaster aid for victims of Superstorm Sandy came before Congress this year, three of Oklahoma's five representatives and both of its senators were among the "no" votes. At the time, some of the Oklahoma lawmakers demanded spending cuts as a condition of aid to the hurricane-ravaged Northeast. Now that a devastating tornado has hit their state, it's not clear whether Oklahoma lawmakers who demanded budget cuts will continue to hold that line when it comes to their state's recovery efforts.  "When we increase spending in one area, we must cut spending in another area," Rep. Jim Bridenstine (R-Okla.)

So John Hart dismisses Mike Hargrove as manager of the Indians because the team needs to start "a new era of success." Perhaps the place to start instead should be a new general manager who wouldn't doom his field manager to unavoidable defeat by trading away awesome baseball talent such as Sean Casey, Brian Giles, Jeromy Burnitz, et al, without even being able to come up with a single decent starting pitcher in return. From where I stand, John Hart's action is one of a craven coward.

And Now, the News: Longtime NBC anchor John Palmer will become anchor of the Discovery Channel's "World Monitor" on Dec. 2. He takes over for John Hart, who unexpectedly decided to leave the program last week. . . . Several ABC affiliates interrupted local programs Wednesday to broadcast an old bulletin on the outbreak of the Gulf War. WUTR of Utica, N.Y., had asked for a retransmission of the file video for a special program, but the transmission was inadvertently aired by a number of stations.

Now that graffiti vandalism seems to be slowing down somewhat in the Valley, perhaps it is time for action against the private signs being posted on city-owned trees, parkways, utility poles and other public property. This kind of brash advertising is just as illegal and unsightly as graffiti ever was. Everything from yard sales to real estate to antiques to gym memberships to dancing classes is being promoted this way. This is especially true on weekends near busy intersections.

John Rocker, who never fit in when he joined the Cleveland Indians last season, was traded to the Texas Rangers on Tuesday for minor league pitcher Dave Elder. Rocker, whose remarks on minorities and homosexuals in a magazine article led to his suspension for two weeks in 2000, will be reunited with new Ranger General Manager John Hart. "I'm really excited about it," Rocker said in a conference call from Puerto Rico, where he is pitching in a winter league.

John Hart and Dodger owner Frank McCourt spoke by telephone Sunday, a discussion in which Hart maintained his interest in becoming general manager of the Dodgers. After several days of confusion, during which Texas Ranger officials claimed Hart had no intention of leaving his position as consultant to Ranger owner Tom Hicks, Hart and McCourt scheduled a formal interview, perhaps for this week.

San Diego Padre right fielder Tony Gwynn, who was chasing his fifth National League batting title, underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee and probably is lost for the rest of the season, team doctor Jan Fronek said. Gwynn, who led the NL in hitting for most of the season, had been bothered by the knee since sliding into second base at Houston in early August.

The nation's most widely read cartoonist is once again challenging a popular belief in the separation between church and the funny pages. Johnny Hart's Stone Age comic "B.C." usually spoofs the human condition, but this Sunday's solemn panels are devoted to the last words of Jesus Christ during crucifixion. The comic strip depicts the candles of a menorah being extinguished one by one until the Judaic symbol is finally transformed into a cross.

John Hart may be bowing out as the successful general manager of the Cleveland Indians, but it is clear he will be open to offers after the season. Hart's decision, in fact, should make him the immediate favorite to replace Kevin Malone if Chairman Bob Daly decides to dump Dodger Boy.

In 10 years, John Hart built the Cleveland Indians from a baseball punch line into a power. And now that he has the club on top, Hart wants to enjoy the view. Hart, who inherited a team that lost 105 games in 1991, announced Thursday that he will step down as Cleveland's general manager on Nov. 1 and be replaced by his assistant, Mark Shapiro. "I wanted to make sure this was the right time for the organization," Hart said during an emotional news conference at Jacobs Field.

Your story ("Hanging on for Dear Life Up the Matterhorn," Feb. 14) was an excellent piece of work. This aging mountaineer was amazed to learn how much it costs to climb a famous peak in this day and age. Half a century ago, college students like myself used to hike all the way in from Brig to Zermatt to conserve funds for the actual ascent. A capable Alpine porter was willing to accompany my climbing buddy and me to the summit of the Matterhorn for $12 each. What we faced was an upward three-hour scramble in darkness by the light of flickering candle lanterns.

If you love the songs played on country radio stations these days, John Hart is a hero. If you don't, he's a villain. Hart polls country music fans and then uses the data to help record companies decide which songs to promote and which to dump. Seventeen Nashville record labels pay his company, John Hart Media Inc., a $2,000 to $3,000 monthly retainer for polling information. Detractors see Hart as an unwelcome gatekeeper who keeps the wraps on exciting new music.
