Re "Sahara Eden is unearthed," Aug. 15 I was fascinated by this story. Let's see, a faint wobble in Earth's orbit changed the climate enough to turn the Sahara desert into a lush paradise over 10,000 years ago. One has to wonder if people then had their own version of Al Gore, claiming all those campfires were causing global warming? Richard Fine Los Angeles

Inevitably, the recent paintings of multicolored dots by B. Wurtz put a viewer in mind of Damien Hirst, he of the thousands of paintings with grids of multicolored circles on a white background. Hirst was neither the first nor only artist to harness the visual theme; but the sheer volume of his parodies of abstract painting colonized the territory, like white cells overwhelming the art-world bloodstream, giving him the dull equivalent of a brand. All the more reason that Wurtz's dot paintings at Richard Telles Fine Arts, seven of which are in the New York-based artist's first solo show at the gallery in several years, are so captivating.

Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman has been fined $7,875 by the NFL for taunting the San Francisco 49ers during the final minute of the NFC championship game on Sunday in Seattle. With 30 seconds left in the fourth quarter, Sherman deflected a pass in the end zone intended for 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree. Seattle linebacker Malcolm Smith intercepted the tipped pass, sealing the Seahawks' 23-17 victory over San Francisco. After the play, Sherman ran after Crabtree, patted his behind and tried to shake his hand, prompting the San Francisco receiver to push the Seahawks cornerback in the face.

CHICAGO -- Kings Coach Darryl Sutter said Sunday that center Mike Richards is fine after being momentarily dazed by a hit from Chicago's Dave Bolland on Saturday in Game 1 of the Western Conference finals. Sutter, as usual, wouldn't disclose his lineup. But it's likely that Richards will play Sunday at the United Center when the Kings try to tie the series. Sutter wouldn't discuss the hit by Bolland late in Saturday's game. It drew no supplementary discipline from the NHL. “It's not an issue,” Sutter said.

A 70-year-old lawyer who was sentenced to jail "indefinitely" on contempt-of-court charges was abruptly released Friday evening after spending a year and a half behind bars. Richard Fine was released from Los Angeles County Jail in downtown Los Angeles shortly after 9 p.m. but did not wish to speak to a Times reporter, said his daughter, Victoria. Fine, an antitrust and taxpayer advocate attorney, was thrown in jail last year by Superior Court Judge David P. Yaffe for failing to answer questions about his finances and for practicing law without a license.

In the three months since he was jailed for contempt of court, attorney Richard Fine has been sitting in solitary confinement in an 8-foot by 13-foot cell with bare white walls and no windows. What's left of his silver-gray hair is disheveled, and a bright orange prison jumpsuit and a yellow wrist tag have taken the place of his usual dark suit and bow tie. For lunch, he gets a bologna or a peanut butter-and-jelly sandwich; for dinner, two hot dogs or a white glob he assumes is breaded chicken.

A Los Angeles judge who had jailed a disbarred attorney on contempt charges 18 months ago released him last week because the attorney was "irrational," "bizarre" and incapable of making a rational choice, according to the judge's order. The contempt charges against Richard Fine, a 70-year-old antitrust and taxpayer advocate, arose out of a lawsuit he filed on behalf of Marina del Rey residents fighting a new development in the area. When the state bar suspended Fine's law license shortly after the case was filed, Judge David P. Yaffe ordered Fine to pay fees and sanctions to the developers and reveal details of his finances.

After a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge sent him to jail indefinitely for contempt of court last year, veteran attorney Richard Fine vowed to take his case all the way to the nation's highest court. "To fight me is to fight me all the way to the Supreme Court," he said in a jailhouse interview with The Times last May. On Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court declined to take up Fine's petition, effectively putting an end to the attorney's dogged legal quest to end his confinement.

A Municipal Court judge on Wednesday allowed a taxpayer lawsuit against the Los Angeles County district attorney's child support unit to proceed. Judge S. Patricia Spear did not grant the demurrer sought by county attorneys, which would have ended the lawsuit that seeks to compel the office to release child support money it has collected but says it cannot distribute. The office has held as much as $25 million in an interest-bearing account, sometimes in violation of state law.
