ST. LOUIS -- It happens overnight, the Dodgers relevant again, fun and preparing to sell baseball caps with dreadlocks attached, everybody charged up by the arrival of Manny Ramirez -- except for Juan Pierre. Is there some kind of rule that says every time we are rewarded with athletic excellence we're also supposed to be reminded how selfish today's millionaires can be? Boo-hoo, says Pierre, it's great the Dodgers were able to land Ramirez, but what about me?

In a major upset, the awards winning streak for Colombia's Juanes ended Sunday when the Grammy for best Latin rock/alternative album went to Mexico's Mana and its cliched tropi-pop. Mana's bland "Revolucion de Amor" was arguably the weakest in the category. Perhaps voters split among more provocative contenders, such as Mexico's Kinky and the Cuban hip-hop/salsa group Orishas. That's the best spin on a disappointing outcome.

The Rev. Gary Tucker has been elected president of the San Juan Capistrano Chamber of Commerce. Tucker, 52, minister of pastoral care at Rancho Capistrano, joined the board of directors less than three years ago when another director resigned. Tucker said he is honored that business leaders selected a member of the faith community as president of the chamber. "Everyone has had someone make a difference in their lives," he said.
