Benedict Cumberbatch is living proof of that elusive quality known as charisma. Thin and somewhat awkward, with a long face, a pronounced nose and an impish smile, the British actor has seemingly set the world on fire. Prior to his appearance on Monday at a PBS panel promoting the third (and highly anticipated) season of his television show, "Sherlock," rabid fans could be seen camping out near the entrance of the Langham Huntington Hotel in Pasadena.

Paul Bryan, a volunteer assistant football coach at San Pedro, has been suspended from coaching next season after he was caught cheating on videotape filmed by another school.

The Pirates, holding a 7-6 lead at the time, were awarded the first down without a measurement.
