SALT LAKE CITY  - Mitch Kupchak paused for several seconds. It wasn't an easy question to answer. What will be Mike D'Antoni's fate? Finally, the Lakers' general manager spoke briefly about the Lakers' coach. "I'm not going to discuss Mike other than to say there is no timetable for any type of decision. So there's really nothing to share," Kupchak told The Times. It represented a departure from his comments last month that D'Antoni was "doing a great job under the circumstances.

For nearly two decades, Barbara Garnaus maintained a modest, delicate life balance: keeping her part-time Orange County school district job and juggling her bills and credit card debt. Now 63, living alone, she counts every dollar, has no cellphone and commutes an hour in traffic so she can keep an affordable apartment in Laguna Woods. Having good health helped. Garnaus got by without medical insurance, relying on yearly exams at a free clinic. But that changed last year: Garnaus now needs treatment for cancer, and she bought insurance under Obamacare.

WASHINGTON - For the Central Intelligence Agency, he was a catch: an American citizen who had grown up overseas, was fluent in Mandarin and had a master's degree in his field. He was working in Silicon Valley, but after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, he wanted to serve his country. The analyst, who declined to be named to shield his association with the CIA, was hired in 2005 into the agency's Directorate of Intelligence, where he was assigned to dig into Chinese politics.

A bit of ratings counseling is in need for Charlie Sheen's TV comeback: His FX series"Anger Management" saw another double-digit drop in viewership in its third week. Its fourth episode, which aired Thursday night, delivered 2.4 million total viewers, according to Nielsen figures - down 28% from the previous week and 27% in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demo. The viewership dive is all the more troubling considering its second week had already experienced a drop of 2 million viewers.

Question: The new board is trying to cut down unnecessary expenditures, but our homeowners association has a law firm on retainer and a management company on contract. Periodic audits unearthed what looks like duplicate and excessive billings for telephone conversations and communications between the attorney and management company owners and employees, also billings for attorney and management attendance at association activities. We have not asked either the law firm or management company to partake in these communications or activities.

Among the highlights of my interview with D-Fenders CEO Joey Buss: -- How he hopes the fourth season in overseeing the D-Fenders will help prepare him for a role in Lakers' management. -- The idea behind the D-Fenders playing their homes games at Toyota Sports Center instead of Staples Center. -- What impact the move has made. -- The team's success in the 2011-12 season. -- How he's driven to prove he's not just a silver spooner living off the success of his father, Jerry Buss, who owns the Lakers.

Question: I'm a board director of my homeowner association, with over 500 units. Our management company has been removing association files from our on-site office and storing them in the manager's garage at his residence. There's no official "office" for the management company listed in our records, only a P.O. Box. While our management contract names the company as "custodian" of our association records, management has removed our records from the very safe, gate-guarded location of our complex to a rented residence.

It could always be worse. The Lakers could have been pounded into a sad corner of team history with Dwight Howard in Houston's lineup. So they got hit with the next worst thing, losing to the Rockets without the injured Howard, 145-130, and clinching their most miserable win-loss record since moving to Los Angeles in 1960. With four games to go, the Lakers (25-53) already outdid the 1974-75 team that went 30-52. The Lakers keep seeking stability, a main reason team executives Jim Buss and Mitch Kupchak recently sat down with Kobe Bryant for a clear-the-air meeting, The Times has learned.

A Vernon battery recycler may not resume lead smelting until its furnaces can operate in compliance with tough new air district rules on arsenic emissions. The South Coast Air Quality Management District's hearing board ruled Tuesday that Exide Technologies, which is accused of endangering the health of more than 100,000 people across southeast Los Angeles County, must maintain "negative pressure" in its furnaces. That means particles from the smelting process must be sucked into air pollution control devices that can keep toxic compounds from wafting over neighborhoods.

Question: Our manager refuses owner requests for documents, causing our association to be sued several times a year. Each time she comes to court as a defendant, she brings her so-called evidence and answers, "Your honor, see Exhibit X. " She overloads on exhibits, most of which are contrived for the purpose of that hearing. Her main strategy includes putting on big exhibit head notes supposedly explaining what each exhibit consists of, but when the exhibits are scrutinized and read, they have little or nothing to do with what is head-noted.

Animation giant Pixar uses technology only as a means to an end; its films are rooted in human concerns, not computer wizardry. The same can be said of the new book "Creativity, Inc.," Ed Catmull's endearingly thoughtful explanation of how the studio he co-founded generated hits such as the "Toy Story" trilogy, "Up" and "Wall-E. " Catmull was a 1970s computer animation pioneer (university classmates included Netscape co-founder Jim Clark), but his book is not a technical history of how the hand-drawn artistry perfected by Disney was rendered obsolete by the processing power of machines.

Sandy Koufax, sprinting out of the dugout to home plate to catch that pitch amid shrieks of surprise, was on time. Yasiel Puig was not.

As the Angels prepared for the 2002 World Series, bench coach Joe Maddon looked at the spray charts and came to a radical conclusion: If the Angels wanted to align their defense based on where Barry Bonds most commonly hit the ball, they should play three infielders and four outfielders. The Angels ultimately decided not to play Bonds that way, although Manager Mike Scioscia said they were "a couple pitches away" from deploying the scheme in certain scenarios. In 2005, Maddon left to manage the Tampa Bay Rays, who have been at the forefront of baseball's shift toward unconventional fielding alignments.
