Re "Clear the tracks," Opinion, Oct. 29 Jim Newton writes that some vociferous objectors in Cheviot Hills are launching another effort to block the Expo Line's construction. This action is ironic. The route of the Expo Line is not a new one; most of it follows the Pacific Electric Railway's Santa Monica Air Line, last used for freight in the 1980s. The Red Cars that ran along that route until 1953 were noisier than the sleek cars planned for the new service. But the residents of this very same area were most vociferous in retaining the service and kept it running for nearly 30 years (since the early 1920s)

It's not too long after Labor Day that the glow of summer starts wearing away. Back in an office cubicle or in a classroom, that beach vacation or afternoon enjoying the great American pastime in a ballpark can seem very far away. But Dune Jewelry offers a way to keep the memories close -- as close as a sterling silver necklace, bracelet or ring that incorporates a tiny bit of sand from your favorite beach, or, in some cases, ball field, park or other vacation-reminiscent spot.

With the Los Angeles County Museum of Art 's expansive "Stanley Kubrick" exhibition set to close on June 30, the museum's film department is revisiting several key movies in the maverick filmmaker's oeuvre.

The series opens May 31 with Kubrick's 1957 anti-war film, "Paths of Glory," starring Kirk Douglas, followed by Joseph Losey's 1957 drama "Time Without Pity," revolving around a man's (Michael Redgrave)

When it was first announced in early 2010, the idea of a new Superman movie prompted a mix of eye-rolling and excitement. On the one hand, didn't we just do this in 2006? On the other,  Christopher Nolan. It's fitting, then, that the movie it became, the Zack Snyder-directed “Man of Steel,” received the reaction it did this weekend: a somewhat tepid response from critics but widespread popularity among audiences, who came out to see it in massive numbers. So what does it mean that one of the most beloved characters in the history of moviedom received this particular reception?

The campus protests of the 1960s happened long enough ago that the images filter through in black-and-white, the tint of television newsreels and newspaper photographs back in the day: Mario Savio, ushering in the Free Speech Movement from atop a police car and exhorting fellow Berkeley students to block the arrest of their friend in the car below. The months-long student strike at San Francisco State, marked by the college president yanking out speaker wires to disrupt a rally.

Any wide-ranging motorist in the Los Angeles area must wonder about the apparent absence of interagency coordination with respect to the carpool lane work on the San Diego Freeway and the repaving of Sepulveda Boulevard in Sepulveda Pass. To simultaneously tear up the pavement and add the visual distraction that such work evinces is madness redux. Tossing in sewer replacement work on southbound Pacific Coast Highway as well as private sector pipeline replacement on Woodley Avenue (a key north-south Valley arterial)

Beleaguered Oscar host Seth MacFarlane made no secret leading up to the show that this year's gig was a one-and-done proposition. So Tuesday's tweet to a follower's inquiry about a return engagement -- "No way. Lotta fun to have done it, though" -- wasn't a surprise. If anything, it could be seen either as MacFarlane's way of washing his hands of the Academy and its deadly serious awards show or reassuring haters that they wouldn't have him to kick around anymore. “Do me a favor and don't read the press tomorrow,” MacFarlane told guests at a West Hollywood after-party following the show.

Kristen Stewart wore another sheer outfit by Zuhair Murad to the London premiere of "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn -- Part 2" on Wednesday. This one was a jumpsuit that showed a lot of peek-a-boo skin. And it seemed to make quite a point of covering her buttocks, unlike the sheer gown that accidentally gave onlookers a view at Monday's Los Angeles premiere. [Styleite] Rihanna, Ben Affleck and Hannah Simone were among the celebs who turned out for GQ's Men of the Year party at the Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles.

Former UCLA Coach Rick Neuheisel remembers the last time UCLA and USC fans could have a legitimate argument about who had the best quarterback. "In 1988, when Troy Aikman and Rodney Peete were around, I guarantee you this was a two-quarterback town," Neuheisel said. Aikman led UCLA to a 20-4 record in two seasons, 1987 and '88. Peete gave Aikman two of those losses and took USC to a pair of Rose Bowls in three seasons as a starter (1986-88). Who was better? Pick one and get screamed at by the other side.

Carmageddon Redux came to an end according to plan before Monday's commute got underway. But unlike last year's freeway closure, which wrapped up an unexpected 17 hours ahead of schedule, this time construction crews used most of their allotted time to make as many improvements to the 405 Freeway as possible, officials said. While motorists opted for alternate routes, alternate modes of transportation or just stayed home, transportation officials deployed extra crews along the Sepulveda Pass to fill potholes, trim trees and pave three Southbound lanes - weeks of work squeezed into a two-day time frame.

PARIS -- Although Morrissey played on the soundtrack, Gloria Estefan and the Miami Sound Machine played in my mind when I saw the spring-summer 2013 Paris Fashion Week collection from Balmain's 27-year-old creative director Olivier Rousteing, who presented a love letter to 1990s style: leather bras, high-rise trousers, oversize hoop earrings and all. The inspiration: 1990s Latin cool; Miami street rappers. The look: Cropped jackets with big shoulders, midriff-baring tops and full cut, peg leg pants.

The fierce battle to pass a law in Maryland that offers in-state college tuition to illegal immigrants who graduate from the state's high schools immediately launched another fight — one aimed at persuading voters to stop it from taking effect. Maryland's version of the DREAM Act was approved in May by the General Assembly and signed by the governor, and would have become law on July 1. But in a state where public referendums are rare — the last one was 20 years ago — the polarized tone that dominates the national debate on immigration helped opponents launch a petition drive that had no trouble amassing the minimum 55,700 signatures to put the issue before voters in November 2012.
