Even though Camarillo High pitcher Laura Richardson had retired Thousand Oaks' Nicki Ochoa in four previous at-bats, Ochoa was not the batter the right-hander wanted to face Thursday with the bases loaded in the bottom of the 11th inning. Richardson plays on the same Amateur Softball Assn. summer team with Ochoa and is fully cognizant that the third batter in the Lancer lineup is a power threat.

Camarillo finally got on the scoreboard in the eighth inning to beat Katella, 1-0, in the semifinals of the Southern Section 5-A playoffs Tuesday at El Dorado High School. With one out in the top of the eighth, Kelly Bannon reached base on a bunt single. She moved to second on a fielder's choice and scored on Miki Mangan's single to left. Camarillo's Laura Richardson, who had given up only two hits and an intentional walk in seven innings, walked the first two batters she faced in the eighth.

A legal ethics watchdog group Wednesday called on the House Ethics Committee to investigate Rep. Laura Richardson (D-Long Beach) for actions surrounding the foreclosure of her Sacramento home and defaults on her homes in San Pedro and Long Beach. William Marshall, a spokesman for Richardson, called the complaint "pretty mean-spirited. It rehashes old news." He said the House ethics counsel last week met with the congresswoman and said her ethics statement met House rules.

Rep. Laura Richardson (D-Long Beach) is getting lots of press this week, just not the kind that a candidate running for reelection might hope to attract. On Wednesday, the House Committee on Ethics recommended Richardson be reprimanded for violating codes of ethics and standards of conduct and fined $10,000. The committee concluded that Richardson pressured her legislative staff to work on her campaign, often against their will. Richardson is running against Rep. Janice Hahn in the newly created 44 th Congressional District that stretches from San Pedro to Watts and across to South Gate.

In the race for the new 44th Congressional District, two Democrat incumbents are pitted against each other. Rep Janice Hahn, who currently represents the 36th District, is running against Rep. Laura Richardson, who represents the 37th District. The race is worth following not just because it's a smack-down between two Democrats but also because it's one of several congressional seats drawn specifically to comply with Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act. What does that mean?

The three related one-acts in Horton Foote's "The Roads to Home," now at the Lost Studio, don't have a lot of action, per se. For the most part, the characters simply chat. However, those trivial, epic interchanges can be stunning in their emotional impact. A great humanist, Foote understands that fate is the villain in most of life's melodramas. It's fitting that his daughter, Hallie Foote, who starred in the 1982 premiere of "Home," has co-produced this excellent production.

SACRAMENTO - Former campaign treasurer Kinde Durkee agreed Tuesday with a recommendation by federal prosecutors that she be sentenced to eight years in prison for stealing $7 million from as many as 50 political clients, including U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein. Such a punishment "is a just and appropriate sentence," says a court filing by Durkee's attorney, Daniel V. Nixon, on the eve of her sentencing. The 15-page filing, set to be considered Wednesday by U.S. District Judge Kimberly J. Mueller in Sacramento, is the first detailed explanation Durkee has offered about what happened to the money she stole.

After finishing second in the Marmonte League for five consecutive seasons, the Simi Valley High softball team's goal is obvious. The Pioneers, striving for the league championship, took a small step toward achieving that goal Thursday by beating defending champion Camarillo, 1-0. Although Thursday's game was just the league opener for both teams, Simi Valley placed extra importance on the matchup. Camarillo, after all, began the season ranked No. 1 in the state by Cal-Hi Sports magazine.
