"In a world of conflict and strife, there is but one fact we all can agree upon: Everybody loves Hugo." Last week's "Lost" episode began with that statement, as Hugo Reyes, also known as the lovable Hurley, accepted a Man of the Year award. As played by Jorge Garcia, Hurley is the sweet, emotional center of the "bizarro" island, the chicken-loving, numbers-plagued hero who has grown from follower to leader, always expressing what the audience is thinking. Garcia's funny, heartfelt and self-possessed performance made Hurley a fan favorite from the moment Oceanic 815 crashed on the island.

Though not technically an onomatopoeia, as its origins are in the Spanish word for pelican, Alcatraz, with its standing-stones line of tough consonants, has an undeniably sinister sound. That it also famously names the iconic island prison turned national park rising from the frigid, forbidding waters of the San Francisco Bay only increases the shiver value. So when Sam Neill, a man not short on shiver value himself, stares into the camera and says "Welcome to Alcatraz," you're certainly not going to argue with him. You're going to sit up straight, zip your lip and watch the darn show.

The brave one's right eye won't stop twitching. "My therapist says that will end when I start sleeping through the night," Jorge Garcia says. The brave one's mind won't stop wandering. "Sometimes I'll dream it was me who was killed," he says. Three weeks ago, Garcia, a junior guard on the football team at South East High in South Gate, was the only student who attempted to save classmate Cindi Santana when she was stabbed in a crowded school courtyard, allegedly by former boyfriend Abraham Lopez.

In many ways, the scene on a cold and rainy day in Tsawwassen, Canada, looked like your run-of-the-mill murder. There was a trio of detectives who had arrived in a vintage forest-green Mustang. There was a dead body, of course. And the cops were after the usual suspects. Except these suspects were from a half-century ago — and all were inmates in one of America's most notorious prisons. The scenario seems puzzling until you realize that it's a story line in J.J. Abrams' new midseason show "Alcatraz," which is set to premiere Jan. 16 on Fox. The series' premise is that a group of Alcatraz prisoners who were supposedly dead have somehow returned to modern day and are wreaking havoc on the streets of San Francisco.

There are two Jorge Garcias in Los Angeles County, each with the same birth date. Because of that oddity, Jorge Garcia Soto found out the hard way that his driving record had been listed with warrants for another Jorge Garcia. Soto was stopped July 7 for making an illegal turn in Orange, and police there found that arrest warrants were outstanding for a Jorge Garcia.

South East's 31-28 victory over Garfield on Friday night did more than give the Jaguars their first victory in the history of an Eastern League rivalry that has spanned seven years. It also served as a tribute to two South East players who were sidelined after a tumultuous week. Running back-linebacker Gerardo Leos is out indefinitely after being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Offensive lineman Jorge Garcia was sliced in the arm Friday morning while assisting a female classmate who was fatally wounded in a campus stabbing . "We've always said this game was going to be for them," said South East cornerback Juan Nevarez, who made two big plays to preserve the victory.
