"Everybody knows Kent," Charles Dickens wrote in "The Pickwick Papers," "apples, cherries, hops and women." Almost 175 years after publication of "Papers," Kent, just 50 miles south of London, is still known as the garden of England and the larder of London. Its formal flower gardens make it a destination, but it also has become a destination for foodies interested in locally produced artisanal foods and locally raised livestock. With its oast houses for drying hops, its farmhouses, rounded tiles and clear, leaded windows, Kent remains stubbornly rural in character.

The Fine Arts Theater in Beverly Hills, a classic Art Deco venue with a celebrity-studded past, has been sold to Paula Kent Meehan, the philanthropist who also is buying the Beverly Hills Courier. Built on Wilshire Boulevard in 1936 as the Regina, the compact, single-screen theater served for years as a venue for small premieres that drew Hollywood A-listers. In 1948, it was renamed the Fine Arts Theater and showed the premiere of "The Red Shoes. " Among the invited guests were Susan Hayward, Joan Crawford, Ava Gardner and Shirley Temple.

The House Judiciary Committee unanimously approved four articles of impeachment against U.S. District Judge Samuel Kent of Texas in an attempt to remove him from office for lying about sexually assaulting two women. If the full House approves the impeachment, the Senate would conduct the trial. The impeachment articles allege that Kent, 59, sexually assaulted two female employees and lied about the assaults to a federal court of appeals investigative committee, twice to the FBI, and to Justice Department officials.

A federal judge pleaded guilty in Houston to lying to investigators about sexually abusing his secretary; in exchange, prosecutors dropped five charges alleging he groped the secretary and another female court employee. U.S. District Judge Samuel Kent is the first federal judge ever charged with a sex crime. As part of the plea agreement, he admitted he tried to force his former case manager into unwanted sex acts in August 2003 and March 2007, and did the same with his secretary from 2004 through at least 2005.

Re George V. Kent's Nov. 13 letter ("German Monument") in which he pointedly asks, "Why single out Berlin?": Nothing would please me more than to see the people of the world's various capital cities erect just such a series of monuments as those suggested by Kent. While it has become vogue to pity Native Americans, we continue to use $20 bills with President Andrew Jackson's face on them; and though President Clinton and his ilk mouth words about "never again," few lift a finger while atrocities do occur again and again.

Wow. Now you can actually buy lunch with the increase to $15 a day for jury duty pay (July 12). Are these people serious? How about this: Compensate people to whatever their current wage is. Then at least they won't feel so insulted and the government might even get a real jury pool. KENT A. DEL ROSSO Culver City

Scottish miners ended a revolt against their union, obeying a union directive calling for a halt to Britain's yearlong coal strike. The National Coal Board said 95% of the nation's miners--about 176,000 men--were back on the job. But about 3,000 miners in Yorkshire, the militant heartland of the dispute, and 1,700 in Kent in southeast England continued to defy the back-to-work directive.

A season of epic losses continued for the Lakers, who are dropping players almost as fast as they are games. Kent Bazemore was the latest to go down Monday after an MRI exam revealed the shooting guard had suffered a torn tendon in his right foot the previous day against the Clippers. He will miss the season's final five games and undergo surgery to repair the tendon. A timetable for his recovery will be given after the surgery. Bazemore joined Kobe Bryant (fractured knee)

Kent Bazemore cried a little bit. Nick Young planted his face in a towel for a long time. Sunday was rough on them, the latest two injured Lakers. In another sign of a bad season, the Lakers have more hurt players (eight) than healthy ones (seven). Bazemore crumpled to the court and rolled around after sustaining a sprained right foot in the second quarter against the Clippers. The weird part was how it happened: Bazemore was merely dribbling near the three-point line, trying to keep the ball away from Darren Collison , when he felt a pop. He was helped off the court and scheduled for an MRI exam Monday.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Welcome to the Lakers. Enjoy the crossfire. Newcomers Kent Bazemore and MarShon Brooks went all of six days before the latest Lakers drama unfolded, indirectly bringing them into the battle of words between Pau Gasol and Lakers Coach Mike D'Antoni . Bazemore's take since being traded to the Lakers? Whoa. "It's been a long season, especially for them," he said. "They've been probably doing this all year. I don't get caught up in that stuff.

Kent Bazemore used to be known for two things. He was the guy with the comically over-the-top celebrations on the Golden State Warriors' bench, spinning his arms wildly or punching the air with his fists. He was also the rookie who found his car filled with popcorn as part of a prank last year. His basketball life has changed considerably in the span of a week. Bazemore, 24, keeps getting points and playing time with the Lakers, scoring a career-high 15 on Friday against Boston and upping it two days later with another career high, 17 points against Brooklyn.

Two straight games for newcomer Kent Bazemore -- two straight career highs. The Lakers traded Steve Blake for the second-year guard/forward on Wednesday (along with MarShon Brooks). On Sunday, Bazemore made the first start of his NBA career. In a loss to the Brooklyn Nets, Bazemore scored 17 points in 29 1/2 minutes.  In his first appearance with the Lakers, a win over the Boston Celtics, Bazemore chipped in 15 points off the bench in almost 33 1/2 minutes. How has Bazemore handled the transition from a sparsely used reserve with the Warriors to a full workload with the Lakers?

The rivalry that produced Jerry West versus Bill Russell, Magic Johnson versus Larry Bird and Kobe Bryant versus Paul Pierce offered a new matchup Friday night: MarShon Brooks versus Jerryd Bayless. It was actually more enticing than it sounds, Brooks nudging a proud but wayward franchise ahead of its archnemesis, if just for one night. Brooks sparked an 11-point comeback in the fourth quarter of his Lakers debut, helping his new team blow past the hated Boston Celtics in a 101-92 victory that had Staples Center rocking for one of the few times this season.
