Back when he was working toward a doctorate in the philosophy of aesthetics and teaching at UC Irvine, John Langley seemed an unlikely candidate to preside over a criminal empire. Yet the producer is doing precisely that, parlaying "Cops"--the cinema verite prime-time series heading into its 13th season on Fox--into additional crime-related programming as well as an ambitious new Web site, Crime.com, which Langley has launched in conjunction with the Court TV network.

John Langley Howard made his reputation as a Social Realist with a Depression-era mural in San Francisco's Coit Tower in 1934. And, while it's tempting to try to see a certain militant idealism in his more recent perfectionist paintings of nature, that would give the work an unwarranted ecological rather than a transcendental emphasis. What is immediately clear from this exhibit is that after the rampant politics of the '30s Howard let go of social commentary altogether. He began instead to display a robust fascination with landscape and minutely observed nature.

The Cincinnati Police Department withdrew permission Thursday for the television show "Cops" to record officers on the job, a day after some City Council members complained it could undo progress made since the city's 2001 race riots. On Tuesday, crews from the long-running Fox series began a planned eight weeks of taping Cincinnati officers for the program, which depicts police from cities nationwide on patrol and making arrests.

When discussing his series, "Cops" mastermind John Langley can't help mentioning a few of its 700-plus episodes. Like the one in which an overweight woman lunged at an officer with a butcher knife. "She falls down and the knife goes all the way in her gut! I mean, to the hilt! And she lived!" He's clearly still amazed. "And then we had the naked burglar in Philadelphia. The cops answer the call, and the guy's on PCP, which for some reason makes people take their clothes off.

Monroe High took advantage of four Grant errors in the first three innings to score three unearned runs and build a lead that proved insurmountable in a 6-1 win Thursday in a Valley Pac-8 Conference game at Monroe. The miscues started early for Grant (10-4, 7-3 in the East Valley League), which Wednesday had defeated Monroe, 5-2, with the help of Viking errors. Monroe's first batter, Ernie Echeveste, hit a routine grounder that rolled between first baseman Raul Montero's legs.

April 28, 1989 | MIKE GLAZE and a car accident last week, won three events as Hart (7-0, 5-0) clinched its first league title since 1951.
Sylmar High pitcher Tom Ball took the mound at Monroe on Thursday with a simple plan. "I was just trying to stay within myself, take deep breaths and think about every pitch," Ball said. The plan worked to perfection as Ball, who had 20 strikeouts in six previous starts, struck out 10 while scattering five singles in a 2-1 Valley Pac-8 Conference victory. Ball escaped a bases-loaded jam in the fourth and improved his record to 6-0 with his fifth complete game. "He's been a big surprise for us," Sylmar Coach Gary Donatella said.

Producers of police "reality" shows were unfazed by Monday's decision by the Supreme Court calling a halt to the police practice of taking news reporters and crews with them to observe raids in private homes. Most, like "Cops," the pioneer of the police reality genre that is preparing to enter its 12th season, have already made adjustments in filming techniques to address privacy issues.
