For fans of the South Bay veteran hard-core band Pennywise, bro hymns will sound all the sweeter today. Jim Lindberg, the band's original and longtime lead vocalist, has rejoined the band after his 2010 departure. The band broke the news on KROQ-FM's "Kevin and Bean" show, simultaneously annoucing Linderg's comeback show on Jan. 18 at the Hollywood Palladium. Lindberg replaces Zoli Teglas, the former Ignite singer who replaced Lindberg, after Teglas bowed out after suffering a serious back injury at a European show.

Here's a sign that a punk band is out of touch: When its fortysomething guitarist stands before a sold-out crowd of four thousand mostly white, beefy dudes, and rails against the one thing he hates the most - using a violent homophobic slur to do so. Granted, Pennywise's Fletcher Dragge was trying to rip on his heavy metal-listening high school nemeses, and the rest of the band cringed and mumbled “Not cool” while Dragge tried to walk it...

Adhering to its uncompromising punk philosophy, Pennywise has passed up opportunities to sign with major labels and strives to set a conscientious example. The Hermosa Beach quartet tackles social-political issues not only in its music, but also through actions such as organizing the benefit show it headlined at the Los Angeles Sports Arena on Friday. Concert proceeds were earmarked for two local charities dealing with suicide prevention and battered children.

After more than 20 years in the Southern California punk band Pennywise, lead singer Jim Lindberg said Friday he is moving on. "Being the singer for this band has been an amazing experience, and along the way we made some of the best fans anyone could ask for," Lindberg said in a statement that wished "everyone in the Pennywise family the best of luck and continued success." The release said Lindberg is working on a documentary based on his 2007 book, "Punk Rock Dad," and also is planning a recording project.

Punk rock dads open up In the documentary "The Other F Word" the word implied in the title is fatherhood; the film takes a look at the seemingly contradictory transition into middle age for men who are in a working rock band and also trying to settle into a stable family life. The most boldfaced name in the movie is likely Flea from the Red Hot Chili Peppers (interviewed alongside his daughter), but the main character who emerges is Jim Lindberg, longtime singer with the band Pennywise who also published his own book called "Punk Rock Dad. " He gives the greatest insight into the struggles of being a present, active parent and husband while making a living brashly rocking out, juggling tour dates with father-daughter dances.

Re "Punk Rocks," (Feb. 19): Around 25 years ago, there was a musical movement taking hold in a few key cities around the world known as punk. There were some key people from the South Bay who recognized it and seized it and really made stuff happen. The '80s crew of South Bay kids were there to take it to the next level and knew they were on to something because this music was original and it said something. The fact that no one else liked it made it all the better. It was their own. It was a musical movement completely identifiable with the early American folk music scene that was "do-it-yourself."

The menu included steak and fancy fish, but the man most responsible for sustaining the Dodgers' success ordered a tuna sandwich. "I grew up poor," Logan White said. "I'm a pretty frugal person. I don't like to have ridiculous waste. I was raised to be wise and prudent and not overpay." This makes White the perfect person to run the Dodgers' scouting operations at a crucial juncture in club history. The no-longer-young core is rapidly approaching free agency, and how the Dodgers manage the inevitable roster renovation might well determine whether the franchise preserves the anticipation of a World Series or reverts to the mediocrity of the post-Kirk Gibson era. The Dodgers no longer spend big bucks on free agents, so White and his staff must sign enough prospects to replenish the major league roster and provide General Manager Ned Colletti with a stash of trade chips as well.

It's been a long, loud journey for Pennywise. The Southern California punk stalwarts released their debut album 17 years ago on Epitaph Records and went on to rack up 3 million CDs sold worldwide. This week, they release their ninth collection as a true 21st century endeavor: "Reason to Believe" finds the Hermosa Beach punks partnering with MySpace Records, and the 14-track album will be offered free to fans for two weeks beginning Tuesday.

Took a trip to Hermosa Be-aatch and kung-fu'd my way in to Penny-wise's rehearsal space. Front-man Jim Lindberg--the most important songwriter in contemporary punk--told me how lousy it felt to be banned from playing an outdoor show in his hometown. The group, which was scheduled to perform a free show Tuesday in Tower Records' parking lot, was diss-invited by the city of WeHo, which claimed the band caused a ruckus last week at the Key Club.

California's next governor probably will have to pay millions of extra dollars in social welfare costs because Gov. George Deukmejian doesn't believe in state support for family planning and has cut the program as much as he can. That is a legacy that a thrifty governor should have tried to avoid. It is certainly not a legacy of a governor who cared about the health needs of women in poverty. The Legislature put $36.2 million in the state budget for the Office of Family Planning.

ALARMED by skyrocketing gas prices and the prospect of an ever-weakening American economy, my husband casually announced one morning that maybe we should "rethink" the two trips we plan to take to Europe this year: three weeks in Amsterdam and Germany in July and two weeks in Paris at Christmas. "We're not rich, you know," he said from behind the safety of the shower door.

The sushi at the Bait Shoppe, a restaurant in the new Hooters Casino Hotel here, was only middling -- though at $5 per two-piece order, the price wasn't bad. Anthony Curtis' verdict? "You won't encounter big crowds here," he said, "so it could work as a quick midday sushi play." Curtis polished off Hooters' $7 lobster wonton, too. But unlike the sushi, that didn't merit any mention in the Las Vegas Advisor, a quirky, chatty, retro-looking monthly newsletter that Curtis has published since 1983.
