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.

 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.

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.

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.

Robinson Cano, who was introduced Thursday at a news conference making his 10-year, $240-million contract with the Seattle Mariners official, has a different definition of respect and effort than most people. When asked if he felt the Yankees wanted him back, he said: "Honestly, I would say no. I didn't feel respect. I didn't get any respect from them and I didn't see any effort. " The Yankees last offer to Cano was seven years, $175 million. That seems like a lot of respect and effort.

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.

After more than three years as lieutenant governor, Gavin Newsom is painfully familiar with the small indignities of a job with few responsibilities of consequence. So it came as little surprise that he was relegated to the last - and least desired - speaking slot at the state Democratic convention late Saturday afternoon in Los Angeles. “Thank you for coming - it's good to see all four of you,” Newsom called out to stragglers scattered among the rows of empty chairs in the cavernous hall at the L.A. Convention Center.

SOCHI, Russia - Ranked 1-2 in the world, Heather Richardson and Brittany Bowe are the United States' best two options to get the U.S. speedskating team on the board and take the pressure off an ongoing medal drought. On Sunday, the former in-line skaters race in the 1,500 meters. After swapping a new Under Armour suit for an old one, the male counterparts on the team went 0-4 in Saturday's 1,500. Richardson and Bowe have struggled in Sochi as well. FRAMEWORK: Best images from Sochi Richardson, 24, finished eighth in the 500 and seventh in the 1,000.

DURHAM, N.C. -- With temperatures hovering around freezing and more snow on the way, North Carolina struggled to recover Thursday morning from a snow-and-ice storm that left highways clogged and roadsides littered with abandoned cars. Gov. Pat McCrory asked drivers to stay off the roads Thursday as the state braced for an additional one to three inches of snow that was expected to blanket major highways that crews had just cleared after an icy mess on Wednesday.  "The bottom line is, this storm is still dangerous," McCrory said during a midmorning news conference in Raleigh, N.C. "Stay at home unless it's an emergency.

Re "'America does not stand still,'" Jan. 29 Former Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine had by far the best response to the State of the Union speech. In 2006, he said, "I think people question whether the State of the Union - and the response - has outlived its usefulness. " There is an old saying: "Don't tell me what you are going to do; do it and then tell me. " All these politicians should get to work solving the nation's problems instead of sticking their faces in front of the cameras and grandstanding.

Bach and Handel did not lead intersecting lives. Bach never left central Germany, while Handel became a cosmopolitan Londoner. Bach was a man of the church and had 20 children. Handel caught the theater bug and was not a family man (recent musicology presumes him to have been gay). But what are the odds that these two pillars of the Baroque would be born less than a month apart in the winter of 1685 and 90 miles away? And in another magnificent coincidence, each produced his most compelling spiritual summing-up, a resplendent working through of crises of faith, in 1749.

MIAMI -- Kobe Bryant kept asking people to vote for someone besides him for the All-Star game. So when the votes were tallied and he was announced a starter Thursday , he didn't exactly celebrate. Bryant said it was "always a tremendous honor" to be selected to the All-Star game but added that, uh, he had no desire to play in it. "No, I don't think so," he said flatly. How come? "With all due respect to the fans who voted me in, and I certainly appreciate that ... but you've got to do the right thing as well.
