E&J Gallo Winery and Dick Clark Productions Inc. said they've teamed up to celebrate the millennium. Clark will appear in commercials for Gallo's Ballatore Sparkling Wine and use it to toast the new year on his "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve" special. The Gallo campaign for the wine also includes in-store promotions and radio ads. Financial terms weren't disclosed. Gallo had a similar deal with Clark in 1998.

VANCOUVER, Canada  - The panicked hue and cry from the Kings' fan base when defenseman Drew Doughty left Thursday's game in San Jose was almost like that bleak November night in Buffalo when goalie Jonathan Quick suffered a serious groin injury. That's where the similarities end. Quick immediately went home to Los Angeles and missed a substantial portion of the season. By contrast, Doughty, who appeared to injure his shoulder against the Sharks in the first period, continued on the trip with the team to Canada.

PHOENIX -- Ted Lilly was scheduled to face the San Diego Padres Wednesday, but will instead pitch in a minor-league game on a practice field at Camelback Ranch. There were two reasons for the move. With Lilly scheduled to face the Padres on March 27 and again in his first start of the regular season, Manager Don Mattingly wanted to limit the number of times the division rival saw him. Also, a rain-shortened game on Sunday limited the workload of some relievers competing for the final roster spot and Mattingly wants to see them pitch in game conditions.

President Obama is scheduled to visit Pope Francis at the Vatican on Thursday, and the meeting will probably take the usual form of encounters between presidents and pontiffs: a polite conversation about their common agenda on poverty and world peace, plus a gentle remonstrance from the Holy Father on abortion and religious liberty. But if Obama and Francis had time to get to know each other, they might each benefit by trading notes on practical politics, as presidents and British prime ministers often do, and on the lessons they can draw from each other's experiences.

"Are there scholarships to rehab?" Michelle Andrade endearingly asks in "Surrender Michelle," the most absorbing and among the largest of her drawings at Charlie James. Andrade nearly smothers the 31-by-50-inch sheet of paper with inked ramblings, doodles, intricate patterns, propositions, reflections and self-doubts: "I have the best taste in music....I am still filled with Catholic guilt....My mind races....Don't get too close....Want to come to the Verdugo tonight?" Andrade's drawings meld teenage exuberance with adult anxiety.

If last year's quietly wrenching Oscar-winner "Amour" revealed the artistic heights achievable by a story of lifetime love and imminent death, "Unfinished Song" reveals an all-too-common middlebrow miasma of easy tears and microwaved warmth. Much like a critic faced with one too many movies like this, cranky pensioner Arthur (Terence Stamp) thinks of the eccentric, ebullient choir practice his ailing wife (Vanessa Redgrave) goes to at the senior center as a waste of time. Perky choir director Elizabeth (Gemma Arterton)

We at the Hollywood Bowl were delighted to have our "musical notes" landscape pictured in the So SoCal article about topiary ("A Cut Above," by Bill Stern, June 16). Stern didn't mean to say, of course, that Hollywood has really gone to seed. We think of our "notes" not as seedy but as magical, like the music played here.

This is supposed to be the week of D.C. in Minneapolis, but Monday was the day of A.C. at the Forum. . . . A.C. Green worked hard during every one of his 39 minutes in the Lakers' win over the Seattle SuperSonics. He hit the boards. He ran the court. He played good defense. He made some outside shots. He got a double double--16 points and 16 rebounds. . . . Perhaps most important of all to the Lakers, he has begun to emerge as their floor leader in the first season of the post-Magic Johnson era.

Notes for sale Re "Stern lecture from CSU," Oct. 15 Cheating and plagiarism have been problems on college and university campuses for years. To me, buying someone else's lecture notes falls into a similar category. More than 20 years ago, two students in one of my classes turned in nearly identical "research" papers that they bought from an entrepreneur of the time. I told them what I would tell students today who purchase someone's notes: Doing your own research and taking your own notes are part of your university learning experience.

Meeting notes released reluctantly and under legal pressure by San Diego Mayor Bob Filner's chief of staff portray him as a tough, insulting and demeaning boss whose behavior shocked and disappointed even people who had worked for him in the past. "People in my off[ice] crying," according to one notation. But the notes also suggest what may be Filner's defense against a sexual harassment lawsuit filed by a former staffer: she was judged to be doing a poor job and possibly was angry that she was facing removal from her $125,000 a year post.

A front-page article in the Los Angeles Times on Dec. 7, 2013 , was incorrect in reporting that Occidental College failed to disclose 27 alleged sexual assaults that occurred in 2012. The article ("College shelved more assault reports") dealt with Occidental's obligations under the federal Clery Act, which requires schools to publish statistics annually on reported crime on or near campus. Occidental representatives approached The Times early this month to seek a correction.

At just 21, a kid from the San Fernando Valley named Jim Berk began work as a music teacher at Carson High School. Within a couple of years, the teacher, not much older than some of his students, had turned a woebegone marching band into one of the best in Southern California. Then Berk moved to struggling Hamilton High School to launch a music magnet program. It gained national acclaim and so many new students that officials reversed their threat to close the Westside campus. "The Wunderkind of education" the Times dubbed him in 1992.

Samsung's Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 is a powerful tablet with a huge screen rivaling that of laptops. But don't think of it as replacing your laptop anytime soon. The South Korean tech giant has packed the Galaxy Note Pro with an enormous 12.2-inch screen and numerous software features meant to let users perform the same types of tasks that they could on a computer, such as running one app on top of another at the same time. Samsung says it made the tablet so users can be productive and look professional holding it. The tablet features Samsung's stitched faux-leather back cover that the company has begun to use on many of its products.

A race-against-time thriller set in a crowded concert hall, director Eugenio Mira's "Grand Piano" may never match the silky suspense of Hitchcock's classic of sinister decorum, "The Man Who Knew Too Much," but it has a certain virtuosic joie de vivre. Elijah Wood stars as a celebrated pianist who, five years after a notorious fiasco of a performance, is making a nervous, much-hyped return to the stage. As he begins to play for the eager audience, however, his score reveals a scrawled note from a hidden sniper (a mostly unseen John Cusack)

PHOENIX -- Zack Greinke performed defensive drills with the Dodgers' other pitchers Tuesday morning. Provided he doesn't feel any discomfort in his calf as a result, he's scheduled to pitch a couple of innings Wednesday against the Arizona Diamondbacks. The Dodgers have six exhibition games remaining before they leave to Australia for their season-opening series. Hanley Ramirez and Andre Ethier won't play Tuesday in the Dodgers' game against the Kansas City Royals in nearby Surprise.

PULLMAN, Wash. -- Maybe UCLA Coach Steve Alford can get a deal on a crate of mouthwash. Point guard Kyle Anderson talked this week about writing a better finish to this season. A year ago, the Bruins lost to Oregon in the Pac-12 tournament final and followed that up with an embarrassing loss to Minnesota in the first-round of the NCAA tournament. “That left a lasting taste in our mouth,” Anderson said. BOX SCORE: Washington State 73, UCLA 55 Time to rinse and spit again.

When it came to officially launching her latest service, Findery , Caterina Fake decided that she wasn't going to be rushed.  "With apps, it's really important to get it right the first time," Fake said.
