A Green Party candidate for secretary of state is planning to crash a debate Wednesday in Sacramento, after he and two other contenders were excluded from the event. This is oddly amusing for a couple of reasons. First, when has there ever been so much interest in the race for secretary of state? It's a job that largely involves overseeing election procedures and managing various business and political filings. Second, David Curtis, the Green Party candidate who was not invited to the debate, recently placed higher in a Field Poll voter survey than two other candidates who were invited to debate.

 In a 14-0 loss to Huntington Beach Edison on Thursday, Los Angeles Garfield earned the respect of Edison Coach Dave White. "That's the best Garfield team we've played," White said. "They are athletic. They're very young. That's scary. " It was the third time Edison and Garfield have played, and the two schools will meet again next season. Garfield has been competitive with two top Southern Section teams _ Edison and Ventura St. Bonaventure despite being 0-2. "I think we're representing the City well," Garfield Coach Lorenzo Hernandez said.

ANSAN, South Korea - For South Korea, a country that pulled itself out of abject poverty to become the world's 15th-largest economy, the most stinging accusation about last week's ferry sinking is that it looks like a Third-World disaster. While the captain escaped and the crew dithered and bickered with emergency officials, hundreds of passengers, most of them high school students, obediently remained in their cabins as the ferry rolled and slipped beneath the surface of the cold, gray sea. Mistake piled atop mistake turned a near-shore mishap into the nation's worst maritime disaster in decades.

In response to the Al Martinez column "A Tale of Two Teachers" (April 23) I would have to comment that the teaching profession has never been given the respect or the consideration that it merits. Some of the blame for the lack of respect in the classroom may be blamed on the students, but it's only part of the problem. MARY M. MORENO Monterey Park

Justin Bieber can't get no respect. For two days in a row now, he's been a victim. On Tuesday, the Biebs had some of his electronics swiped while he was performing at the Tacoma Dome in Tacoma, Wash. "yesterday during the show me and my tour manager josh had some stuff stolen," he tweeted Wednesday. "really sucks. people should respect other's property. " No big deal, right? He's rich enough to replace pretty much anything? But it's not that simple. Just like the rest of us, even Bieber can't buy back memories.

We need a "National Thumbs Up Attitude" for our senior citizens. These people lived through the Depression and World War II and have literally had to grow up fast. Senior citizens, when they were young, accepted responsibilities and made sacrifices that today's youth couldn't even imagine. The older people of today helped to preserve the freedoms we all enjoy. We need to appreciate our senior citizens and to pay them the respect they deserve. If the middle-aged and young adults can show admiration, perhaps disrespect from the youth will disappear.

So the Lancaster City Council is considering building two new streets through a desert woodlands area to protect children walking to school (Part B, Feb. 7). We get this news on a page filled with news about a drive-by killing near Carson High School and another in Sylmar. The next page relates the trial of a man who drove into a group of pedestrians in Glendale and killed four people. So the parents want two streets built to protect their children? This brings to mind the time in Manhattan Beach when parents complained about the dangers of Polliwog Pond, a small body of water once big enough for small boats and fishing.

Kudos to Anne Taylor Fleming for "The Importance of Earning Respect" (Commentary, Feb. 19). I was fortunate to grow up in a family that affirmed my sense of positive self-worth (self-esteem) by encouraging the development of my self-respect. Positive self-esteem helps us to be selfish, so that we can help ourselves. Self-respect helps us to be selfless, so that we can help others. For me, having both and balancing them has been the key to personal and professional success. Fleming's column is a gentle reminder of what's really important.

YANGON, Myanmar - Win Tin, one of Myanmar's most respected opposition leaders who was jailed for nearly two decades by his country's military rulers, died early Monday. He was 84. His death, attributed to organ failure, came as Myanmar marked the end of Thingyan, the Buddhist New Year, and five weeks after he was admitted to Yangon's main hospital on the evening of his 84th birthday. A former journalist who in 1988 co-founded the National League for Democracy Party with his longtime ally, Aung San Suu Kyi, Win Tin was one of the most prominent leaders of the movement to challenge the military junta that ruled what was then known as Burma.

The battle for buyers of family sedans - already the most competitive U.S. auto segment - will heat up this fall when Toyota and Hyundai launch dramatically restyled versions of their respective offerings, the Camry and the Sonata. A decade ago, the default choices in this biggest slice of the auto market were the Camry and Honda's Accord, but the competition has grown fierce in the last five years. Automakers can't afford a misstep with a new model, and they can't fall behind with a dated model.

Rest or not to rest. That's something Clippers Coach Doc Rivers has pondered with two regular-season games left. Rivers has thought about sitting some of his starters in one or both of the next two games. But Rivers said, “No,” when asked if he had decided whether to sit any of his players when the Clippers play the Denver Nuggets on Tuesday night at Staples Center or Wednesday night at Portend in the regular-season finale. “I think some of them want to play,” Rivers said.

LAS VEGAS - Manny Pacquiao has been in so many more big fights than his Saturday opponent Timothy Bradley that apparently he can now read body language. "They seem very nervous," Pacquiao whispered to trainer Freddie Roach on the MGM Grand stage, where Pacquiao weighed in at 145 pounds and Bradley at 145.5 for their World Boxing Organization welterweight championship bout. Pacquiao (55-5-2, 38 knockouts) is seeking to avenge what most viewed as a badly scored split-decision loss to Bradley (31-0, 12 KOs)

Paul Salamunovich, the widely respected choral conductor who led the Los Angeles Master Chorale for 10 years, died on Thursday. He was 86 and was suffering from multiple health complications due to West Nile virus. Salamunovich served as music director of the Master Chorale from 1991 to 2001, and later became the organization's director emeritus. Under his leadership, the chorale continued to rise in international prominence and take on adventurous programming that put new music alongside classical standards.

Chorale master Paul Salamunovich once said that the greatest moment of his life was a 1988 concert at the Vatican for Pope John Paul II with the group he had led continuously since 1949, the St. Charles Borromeo Church Choir of North Hollywood. But it was his experience with choral music as a Southern California teenager that provided the underpinning for nearly everything he did over the next six-plus decades, including his role in shaping the Los Angeles Master Chorale into one of the world's finest choirs.

OKLAHOMA CITY - Pau Gasol heard about Kobe Bryant's front-office rant. He understood it. "I respect a guy that speaks his mind and I respect a guy that wants to win," Gasol told The Times on Friday. "And that's what Kobe's trying to do, to make sure everybody's doing the best they can for him to be in a position to be able to win. " A day earlier, Bryant challenged Lakers upper management to bury any differences, singling out team executives and siblings Jim Buss and Jeanie Buss.

If you're a city person, you might only have read of chamber pots, an inconvenient though useful contraption from an earlier time. In the part of Texas where I grew up, the term "chamber pot" was a tad too genteel. We called these essentials "slop jars" or just "the pot. " Whatever you called it, I had to empty it. Our house sat on a slight rise facing busy Highway 31. The outhouse was back of the house, toward the woods, maybe 50 feet away. PHOTOS: 5 Senate women to watch in 2014 It was tricky running with the pot to the outhouse.
