The new indie drama "Touching Home," arriving at Laemmle's Sunset 5 in West Hollywood on Friday, is unlikely to register more than a blip at the box office. Starring Ed Harris as a man who wrestles with sobriety and compulsive gambling as he labors to raise two sons, the film hasn't been generating the level of reviews that art-house releases must have to flourish; in limited rollout from upstart distributor CFI Releasing, "Touching Home" has grossed just a little more than $100,000 over the course of several months in a handful of cities.

"Veronica Mars," the movie, is just so Veronica Mars. The teenage private eye from the 2004-07 TV series starring Kristen Bell has grown up. But like fans of the show, a.k.a. marshmallows, it is quickly clear that while Veronica may have left her life in Neptune, Calif., behind, she hasn't moved on. Director Rob Thomas, creator of the prime-time show, and series executive producer Diane Ruggiero, finally do what they refused to do when "Veronica Mars" was canceled in 2007 - deliver a script that ties up a lot of loose ends and opens up a new can of worms.

Despite fevered social media speculation to the contrary, the green velvet tuxedo that Ben Haggerty (the Macklemore half of Macklemore and Ryan Lewis) recently wore to the 56th Grammy Awards did not come from a thrift shop -- it was custom-made for the musician by fashion designer Logan Neitzel. Ever since the Grammy telecast we've been on the hunt to get the details about the eye-catching threads since it was one of our favorite classy but just-different-enough looks of the whole night.

Boysen: The standard of quality in hybrid blackberry flavor, rich and distinctive; fruit is large, soft, juicy and dark purple when fully ripe. Originated as a cross of Logan (see below) with an Eastern dewberry (trailing blackberry) such as Lucretia or Mayes (a.k.a. Austin). Supposedly bred by Rudolph Boysen in the early 1920s at John Lubben's farm near St. Helena in Napa County, and later brought to Southern California, where it was popularized by Walter Knott. Grown in the 1950s on several thousand acres in California, where fewer than 70 acres now remain; Oregon still has 600 acres, mostly for processing (production was 3 million pounds in 2009)

The sweet but not too syrupy romance of "The Lucky One,"starring a buffed Zac Efron and a blond Taylor Schilling, is about love emerging from the war-ravaged rubble of a young soldier's heart and the unlikely things that save him. Directed by Scott Hicks ("Shine"), with Will Fetters adapting the Nicholas Sparks novel, this is the latest and the best Sparks-inspired film to come along since "The Notebook" won over hearts, if not minds, in 2004. The Sparks-styled romance has almost become its own movie genre - predictable, pure of heart, sentimental and never straying from the boy-meets-girl basics, or the surface, for that matter - and in that "The Lucky One" delivers.

Two white supremacists from Illinois have been indicted in a 2004 mail bombing that injured the diversity director in the Phoenix suburb of Scottsdale, federal authorities said. Twin brothers Dennis and Daniel Mahon are charged with conspiracy to damage buildings and property by means of explosives. The indictment says the brothers intended to "promote racial discord" on behalf of the White Aryan Resistance, a decades-old group based in California. The package detonated in the hands of Don Logan, who is black, on Feb. 26, 2004, in the city's Human Resources Complex.

I am clearly not of the same mind as the Dornanites who now must work at the pitiable task of soothing and cajoling their fallen hero. I am a realist who can't understand why it took so long to rid Garden Grove of this embarrassing blemish. It will be a breath of fresh air to have a real person like Loretta Sanchez uplifting the people in her district. G. FRED LOGAN Laguna Niguel Stop picking on Bob Dornan when he's down. In recognition of his many years of service, I nominate him for the Michael Huffington Graceful Winner Medal.

The Dodos' singer/songwriter Meric Long (pictured front) plays guitar like a drummer -- choppy down strokes and percussive, athletic fingerpicking. The band's drummer, Logan Kroeber (at left), plays his kit like a guitarist -- more conscious of tone and atmosphere than keeping time. Armed with the lovely new album "Visiter," the San Francisco band may vanquish the shivering, beatless singer-songwriter scene for good. "Logan played in metal bands, and I was into Balinese and West African music," Long says.

EL PASO - UCLA All-American linebacker Anthony Barr has a different idea of "fun. " This week that describes going up against Virginia Tech quarterback Logan Thomas , a 6-foot-6, 260-pound senior in the Hyundai Sun Bowl on Tuesday. Asked whether he ever had to tackle someone so big, Barr said, "I don't think so, but it'll be fun. " The Bruins are hoping Barr has a rollicking good time. Thomas is the key to the Hokies' offense, UCLA defensive coordinator Lou Spanos said, much in the same way that quarterback Brett Hundley makes the Bruins' offense tick.

I never had dinner at Sue Mengers' house, and though I had a nodding acquaintance with her completely charming husband, director Jean-Claude Tramont, I never even met the woman in question. But after seeing John Logan's "I"ll Eat You Last: A Chat With Sue Mengers," a bracing play about the woman who in her prime was viewed as the most powerful talent agent in the world, I wish I had. And, judging from the reaction on opening night at the Geffen Playhouse, a lot of other people shared that wish.

"We were wrong," she told co-hosts Norah O'Donnell and Jeff Glor in an Friday appearance on "CBS This Morning. " The correspondent explained how she and producers had been misled by a key source, Dylan Davies, known by the pseudonym Morgan Jones.

Looks like "60 Minutes" is getting ready to walk away from at least part of Lara Logan's controversial Benghazi report. The CBS newsmagazine featured a segment last month about the deadly attack on the U.S. mission in Libya, which happened on the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. The CBS newsmagazine and Logan herself had been staunchly defending the segment for days against critics who argued that a key source -- British security expert Dylan Davies, a.k.a. "Morgan Jones" -- may not have been telling the truth.

When it comes to the darkly comic revenge western "Sweetwater," it's hard to tell if the Miller brothers - Logan (who directed) and Noah (who co-wrote with Logan) - are fans of such pictures or just their more parody-ready elements. Another bro duo once flirted with genre insincerity too, but where Joel and Ethan Coen mastered storytelling and character eccentricity, the Millers offer up a grim, wearying jumble of tones. January Jones adapts her "Mad Men" steeliness to play prostitute-turned-frontier-wife Sarah, who suffers mightily at the hands of landowning, power-hungry Prophet Josiah (Jason Isaacs)

His family said he had stomach cancer. Hired by baseball owners in 1978 after 20 years at General Electric Co., Grebey succeeded John Gaherin as the sport's chief labor negotiator. After arbitrator Peter Seitz struck down the reserve clause, Gaherin worked out the deal in 1976 that created free agency.

After a terrific turn in last year's fine indie drama "The Perks of Being a Wallflower," Logan Lerman is back in franchise-land. This time, the engaging young actor reprises his role as earnest demigod (that is, half human-half god) Percy Jackson in the action-fantasy "Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters. " Skippable 3-D aside, it's a serviceable, limber follow-up to 2010's "Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief," again based on a novel from the Greek mythology-inspired adventure series by Rick Riordan.
