The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival may have wrapped up last week, but still unfurling in Coachella's Pueblo Viejo District is an ambitious project that has brought together about a dozen muralists and international contemporary artists. "Coachella Walls," which has no formal connection to the Goldenvoice-produced festival, is billed as an "arts-driven community revitalization project. " Its organizers are Coachella-based Date Farmers Art Studios, a.k.a., the artists Armando Lerma and Carlos Ramirez, who grew up in the area and now show their work at Ace Gallery in Los Angeles.

Thousands are expected to commemorate the 99th anniversary of the Armenian genocide on Thursday, with several high-profile events scheduled across Southern California. The observances come just days after Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan  offered condolences to Armenian descendants of the massacre - an atrocity that Turkey still refuses to describe as a genocide. Roughly 1.5 million Armenians were killed starting in 1915 amid the chaotic collapse of the Ottoman Empire.

Transportation officials have shelved plans for a second entrance to a downtown subway station across from L.A. police headquarters and the Los Angeles Times because the newspaper's parent company says it may develop the site, according to Metro documents published Tuesday. The Tribune Co. property, a parking lot in downtown L.A.'s Historic Core, is the site of a future station along a $1.4-billion subway aimed at closing one of the most frustrating gaps in Los Angeles County's growing rail network.

SACRAMENTO - Judging by your emails, many readers agree with me that a proposed ballot measure to split California into six states is crazy. "Ridiculous. " "Laughable. " Also, you concur that this bird will never fly. Not only would the plan need to be approved by California voters, Congress and the president would have to sign off, too. "Do you really think Democrats would ever allow anything to disrupt the 55-electoral-vote advantage they get every four years?" from California, reader Kurt wrote.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has massed tens of thousands of troops along Ukraine's eastern border, a reminder of his vow to protect ethnic Russians in the neighboring country. Using his army, however, is probably Plan B. Rather than repeating the "Crimean scenario" - invading, seizing and annexing territory - the Kremlin would prefer to keep Ukraine weak and divided by forcing a change in how it is governed, analysts say. Increasing regional autonomy at the expense of the central government would force Ukrainian authorities to constantly balance competing visions of the country to hold it together, and in effect give Moscow veto power through its influence among ethnic Russians in the east.

They were two teams too close for comfort. Each other's. The width of a slip of paper separated Arizona and Wisconsin in Saturday night's NCAA West Regional final. And in the end, when Wisconsin won an overtime thriller of thrillers, it was the kind of game they will remember in NCAA basketball tournament lore forever. The final score, before 17,814 in Anaheim's Honda Center, was 64-63, and few will remember that. Margin of victory is all that mattered. Those who were there, or were watching on TV, will remember it as the kind of game where every screen was contested, every shot, even every referee's call.

A look at the NCAA tournament regional finals on Saturday. West Regional at Honda Center, Anaheim NO. 1 ARIZONA (33-4) VS. NO. 2 WISCONSIN (29-7) WHEN: 5:49 p.m. PDT. TV: TBS. Wisconsin put on a clinic in basketball fundamentals in Thursday's semifinal destruction of Baylor. The Badgers used precision passing to dissect Baylor's 1-3-1 zone and, defensively, held the Bears to 16 first-half points. Wisconsin made 26 of 51 shots, marking only the third time in program history the Badgers have made more than 50% of their shots in an NCAA tournament game.

The Arizona coach is like a quivering tea kettle. Wisconsin's guy is witty enough to do stand-up comedy. The only one of these four head coaches I'd ever buy anything from - a toaster, an annuity - is Baylor's, and he's gone. Also gone is the Aztecs' Steve Fisher, who had to be the inspiration for Coach T in those Toyota spots. In the postgame confab Thursday night, he lashed out over a breach of protocol, then ended the odd session by asking the media about the timing of a goaltending call.
