Shinn shouldn't get away Scott-free It was obvious 2008 coach of the year Byron Scott was in trouble, but firing him in nine games was fast even for Hornets owner/bailout king George Shinn. Now if Coach/General Manager Jeff Bower (read: we owe Byron $5 million, so let's combine jobs, even if we have to hire former USC -- and Hornets -- coach Tim Floyd to show him what to do) can't turn them around, there goes the illusion the problem is anything but their ragtag selves. Is there any way this could be a bigger disaster?

A gunman opened fire at a Reno hospital Tuesday afternoon, killing at least one person and critically wounding two others before apparently taking his own life, state emergency officials said. Reno Deputy Police Chief Tom Robinson told reporters the gunman apparently shot himself. The incident took place on the third floor of a medical building at Renown Regional Medical Center, Robinson said. He estimated that about 100 people were inside at the time. "The building is secure and safe,"  he said.

It was dubbed one of the longest red carpets ever by revelers at Saturday's world premiere of “The Lone Ranger.” One passerby said it made the Academy Awards carpet feel short. Rolled out at Disney's California Adventure, it was so long, in fact, that by the time guests made it to the end, they looked worn out. Tiny beads of sweat dotted Armie Hammer's hairline as thousands of fans cheered him and other arrivals under the hot Anaheim sun. “The Lone Ranger” also unspools in staggering heat - in the desert landscapes of the great American West, where the film was shot.

ALBUQUERQUE - Johnny Depp was the picture of breezy relaxation as he walked bare-chested across the "Lone Ranger" film set in the high desert of New Mexico last May - despite the punishing midday glare and the pelting sand from a brewing windstorm. "At the very least, I'm one of the lucky ones, since I don't have to wear a shirt," said Depp, who plays a reimagined version of Tonto that defies the standard sidekick expectations in the film that arrives in theaters on July 3 as the most expensive Hollywood western ever made.

Cal State Fullerton's most recent NCAA graduation-rates report confirmed John Reid's belief that many African American male athletes are not performing well academically--of the 34 who enrolled and received financial aid in 1985-86, only five (15%) graduated within six years. But Reid, a 51-year-old Fullerton graduate student who played football and ran track at Norfolk (Va.) State University, didn't need any official statistics to grasp the severity of the problem.

Two and a half years after Delores Jackson drowned in his swimming pool, businessman Donald Bohana pleaded not guilty Wednesday to her murder and was ordered held in lieu of $1-million bail. A short bail hearing in Los Angeles Superior Court depicted Bohana as a 60-year-old businessman with widespread contacts, a pilot's license--and more than $4 million in debts.

Craig Tefertiller, girls' volleyball coach at El Modena High, used his powers of persuasion when Marni Hichborn and Melizza Benitez tried out for his team three years ago. He convinced Hichborn and her parents that she should continue to play despite struggling with grades during her eighth-grade year. She improved her grades, and started as a freshman on the varsity. And he persuaded his assistant coaches not to cut Benitez, a newcomer to the sport, from the freshman-sophomore team.
