Infielder Mark Lewis, recently signed to a minor league contract, could be the Dodgers' opening-day third baseman. "We will get him over here [into major league camp]," Manager Jim Tracy said Friday. "And we will get him some opportunities soon." Adrian Beltre is scheduled to undergo abdominal surgery Monday for the second time in two months, and backup third baseman Dave Hansen might be sidelined early in the season because of a broken bone in his left hand.

At Harbor College, the coaching staff requires baseball players to be tough and play with intensity. Dirty uniforms are evidence of aggressive play in each game and practice. That kind of physical, scrappy athlete has helped the program win 12 league titles and three state championships. Mark Lewis is such an athlete. The 5-foot-10 shortstop from El Segundo High has emerged as the team's leader in his sophomore season.

Unless you're Australian, or have a long memory for short films, you've likely never heard of cane toads. But be prepared, they're coming at you. And in 3-D no less. "Cane Toads: The Conquest" had its world premiere at Sundance on Tuesday night before an audience that roared with delight at the amphibians' antics. The reception fulfilled the expectations of filmmaker Mark Lewis, who called it "just like 'Avatar,' except with toads." An Australian with a lively and playful sense of humor, Lewis has been to Sundance before, with the irreverent "The Natural History of the Chicken."

Well, once again we saw another woefully unprepared USC team against Cal. Missed tackles, fumbles, an unimaginative game plan, no team concept, fundamental breakdowns--in other words, the typical Tollner-era USC team performance. With a 4-7 or 5-6 season likely, Tollner will have performed the impossible at USC in two of his three seasons--having losing seasons. Hopefully, he won't have a chance to make it three out of four!

Junior welterweight Mark Lewis of Mira Loma will attempt to get his once-promising boxing career back on track tonight against Joani Cervantes of Bell in the Marriott's 10-round main event. Lewis fought Cervantes to a technical draw two months ago in Northern California. The bout was stopped in the fourth round when Cervantes developed a cut stemming from an accidental head butt.

Since when does a city manager have carte blanche regarding expenditures and salaries? When the city manager of Monterey Park is called on for accountability on seemingly unethical hiring practices or unauthorized expenditures, a group of beneficiaries raise up a smoke screen by suggesting that racism is the motive for the investigation. I cannot believe the blatant excuse Mark Lewis used for purchasing a $10,000 computer (at the request of his new employee) without the approval of the City Council, knowing full well that he must have expenditures of over $5,000 pre-approved.

Mark Lewis took a trip into the unknown Thursday and survived in the main event at the Irvine Marriott. Lewis scored a seventh-round knockout over Eduardo Leon in the junior welterweight bout in front of a sellout crowd of 1,120 in the first show of the 14th year of the event. But a few hours before the bout, Lewis, who is from Mira Loma, had no idea who he was going to be fighting because his scheduled opponent, Joani Cervantes, dropped out because he had the flu.
