Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa spoke publicly for the first time Monday about the breakup of his 20-year marriage, saying he was responsible for the split even as he refused to talk about what caused it. In a somber meeting with reporters at City Hall, Villaraigosa declined to answer questions about whether the break with his wife, Corina, was triggered by another romantic relationship.

AUGUSTA, Ga. -- Like John Travolta's character in “Saturday Night Fever,” Jordan Spieth strutted down the Augusta National practice range, one confident stride after the next. While onlookers applauded, Spieth high-fived Sean Foley, the swing coach for Justin Rose. After reaching the practice green, Spieth bantered with playing partner Bubba Watson. He appeared completely in his element, a 20-year-old ready to prove that experience matters as much as the color of your shirt.

Los Angeles police officers tampered with voice recording equipment in dozens of patrol cars in an effort to avoid being monitored while on duty, according to records and interviews. An inspection by Los Angeles Police Department investigators found about half of the estimated 80 cars in one South L.A. patrol division were missing antennas, which help capture what officers say in the field. The antennas in at least 10 more cars in nearby divisions had also been removed. LAPD Chief Charlie Beck and other top officials learned of the problem last summer but chose not to investigate which officers were responsible.

Las Vegas-based Allegiant Air has rolled out a roomier seat dubbed the "Giant Seat. " It represents the latest way the airline industry has created new seating options for travelers willing to pay more for extra elbow room. In the first row and the mid-cabin emergency exit row, the six Giant Seats on the carrier's Boeing 757 offer more than 36 inches of legroom and a width of 25 inches, compared with a typical 17.5-inch width on Allegiant's economy seats. The seats are locked in a semi-reclined position.

Jamal Crawford missed five of his first six shots Saturday, a clear sign the Clippers reserve shooting guard was out of rhythm after sitting out the last five games recovering from a strained left calf. But Crawford made his next two shots, a clear sign he is confident enough to take shots when the result hangs in the balance, even if he's still trying to find his way after being out for so long. "I think in the second half, I got more comfortable," Crawford said after scoring 10 points on three-for-eight shooting.

If you ask Ian Rush, Sunday's English Premier League match between first-place Liverpool and fast-closing Manchester City is about more than soccer supremacy. Oh, sure, it will be a clash of styles and philosophies, one that will push the winner closer to the Premier League title with less than a month left in the season. But to hear Rush tell it, it will also be a battle of the banks, one matching the haves against the have-mores. "Manchester City, you expect it because of the amount of money they pay for players," says Rush, Liverpool's all-time scoring leader and now an ambassador for the club.

Actress Scarlett Johansson topped the box office charts last weekend playing the character of Black Widow in the Marvel superhero flick "Captain America: The Winter Soldier. " That same weekend she was on screen as a man-eater of a different type in the cryptic indie sci-fi film "Under the Skin. " As a space alien in human form who lures male victims into a mysterious black void, Johansson gives a performance at once sinister, sultry and unexpectedly sympathetic. If "Captain America" was the latest product of a studio franchise machine, "Under the Skin" was the handcrafted result of writer-director Jonathan Glazer's 10-year quest to bring a singular experience to the screen.

Reading is such an improbable idea -- a miracle, really. Yet simple squiggles on a page, arranged just so, can convey ideas that change the way we think or introduce to us characters we love for a lifetime. In celebration of reading -- and of this weekend's Los Angeles Times Festival of Books -- we asked four readers (who also happen to be writers) to celebrate books that mattered in their lives. In 1975, when I was young, I went to hear James Baldwin speak. Afterward, I waited in a long line and finally got to stand before him. I told him that his book "Giovanni's Room" had made me want to be a writer.

The owner of a Little Saigon lounge who federal agents say was victimized in a loan shark operation has filed a lawsuit against the Police Department in Westminster, charging that officers formed a "team" to provide muscle for the key suspect. Hanh Le said officers threatened and intimidated her, pulled her over on bogus traffic stops and showed up at her lounge unannounced, pushing her to pay her monthly installments on a high-interest loan. "My client lived with so much fear," said Mark Eisenberg, Le's attorney.

Faced with losing an ambitious $1-billion plan to revamp the Los Angeles River, Mayor Eric Garcetti on Friday raised the stakes by offering to split the cost with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The corps, which manages the river as a flood control channel, last year recommended a $453-million package of parks, bike paths and other enhancements to make the river more inviting to Angelenos. It recently informed the mayor's office that it was sticking with that plan rather than pursuing the $1-billion version, known as Alternative 20, that Garcetti backs.

In 2010, when Mike Trout was a relatively anonymous minor league outfielder, Tyler Skaggs was his roommate. Trout watched with delight from center field as Skaggs fired fastball after incredible fastball. The way Trout remembered it, Skaggs could hit 96 mph, and 97, and even 98. The Angels sent Skaggs to the Arizona Diamondbacks in the Dan Haren trade. As the two players arrived in the major leagues, Trout kept up with his old roomie on television. He turned on one game last year and could not believe his eyes: Skaggs was throwing 89 mph. "I was wondering what was going on," Trout said.
