Choose any significant soccer event in Southern California over the last 38 years, and chances are Ralph Perez was there. The 1984 Olympic Games? He worked as a statistician "just so I could get to the games. " The World Cup a decade later? He was a technical advisor. Major League Soccer? He was with the league from the start and even helped coach the Galaxy to two MLS Cup wins. He also founded programs at Cal State Los Angeles and Cal State San Bernardino, ran teams at Cal State Fullerton and Whittier College and might be the only man in history to coach teams in all three divisions of NCAA play, the MLS, the Olympics and the World Cup. All of that won him a lifetime achievement award last month at the National Soccer Coaches Assn.

The Pac-5 Division has been long considered the strongest in Southern California football. In the five years of CIF state championship bowl games, the Pac-5 champion has been chosen four times to play at the Home Depot Center. This season, the debate is going to be loud and furious about whether the Inland Division champion deserves to be chosen over the Pac-5. There are two bowl games available (Division I and Open Division) among the champions from the City Section and the Pac-5, Inland and Northern divisions.

The other morning I woke up to find a football in my bed. Down where the dog should have been, a football. Guess I'd had a little too much grape juice the night before, at least that's what I'm telling the wife. I snuggled the football. Whispered sweet nothings. Made a lunch date. Spooned. See, football is more than a one-night stand with me. It's a chronic, lifelong commitment. I've studied football back to the days of Cactus Face Duggan. Yes, he was an actual player (for the Giants)

Dark as dirt, the Depression-era drama "Redland" opens with an act of terrible self-violence and maintains a tone of misery and dread for much of its running time. There's undeniable beauty too in much of the imagery in this ambitious first film, but if its gutsy, handmade aesthetic makes it unfashionable among American indies, the undernourished narrative puts it on common ground with many of its digital cousins. Hardscrabble would be a step up for the family at the center of the story.

Filmmaker Asiel Norton has come a long way from his childhood growing up in a remote mountain cabin with limited electricity, water collected from a nearby stream, and that horror of all horrors: no television. But the Northern California native ? and son of real-deal hippies ? credits his off-the-grid youth for sparking his deep creative streak. "When you're up in the woods and there aren't a lot of people around, you're always imagining stories to yourself," said Norton, 32, during a recent visit at his publicist's West Hollywood office.

The department has about 50 of its 74 officers working the case, said Carl Baker, a police spokesman. "We don't have a lot of homicides in Redlands," Baker said.

Redlands police are seeking a lone gunman in connection with a shooting at an apartment complex playground that left two teens dead and two others seriously wounded. The incident has potential racial overtones, authorities said, because the victims are black and the unidentified suspect is Latino. Quinn McCaleb, 17, and Andrew Jackson, 16, both of Redlands, died of wounds suffered when an assailant opened fire late Wednesday on the group in the 900 block of Oxford Drive. A fifth teenager was not hit. The wounded teens, whose names were not released, are expected to survive, said Carl Baker, a spokesman for the Redlands Police Department.
