I can see what our choice will be in November: tax-and-spend Democrats or spend Republicans. R.C. Richards Corona

Richards, El Modena's principal for the past five years, has spent her entire teaching career in the Orange Unified School District.

In a summer filled with CGI-driven tent pole movies, writer-director Richard Linklater's coming-of-age drama "Boyhood" makes use of a unique special effect: Time. To tell the story of a 6-year-old boy and his journey into young adulthood, Linklater and his cast shot the movie over the course of a dozen years, and the results can be glimpsed in the newly released trailer. Ellar Coltrane, who was 7 when filming began, plays Mason, a dreamy grade-schooler dealing with his single mother's (Patricia Arquette)

In Paul Brownfield's article about the upcoming "Michael Richards Show" ("Master of This Domain," Sept. 17), he writes that it will be compared with "Get Smart," when in truth the only series that ever came close to that classic's inspired lunacy was the '80s spoof "Sledgehammer." There was also a comparison made to Peter Sellers' Inspector Clouseau, but Austin Powers seems a more likely heir to that comic throne. Richards seems to be taking himself far too seriously, which is dangerous for a comedian.

In spite of the fact that Jackson has been dubbed the "cannot win" candidate by the media, I still found myself having a delightful fantasy: Bush and Jackson in a series of six debates--and the best man won. CHARLENE A. RICHARDS Venice

Civil rights groups, the ACLU, the media and others seem to think that our policing organizations are the bad guys, when in the performance of their duties they use as much force enforcing the law as criminals do in breaking it. DON RICHARDS Costa Mesa

A 62-year-old man died early Sunday morning in the UCI Medical Center jail ward, where he had been in custody since his arrest in Orange three weeks ago on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, a Sheriff's Department spokesman said. The coroner's office listed the cause of death of William Frank Rice of Orange as "apparent natural causes" pending the outcome of toxicological tests, Sheriff's Sgt. Richard Moscowitz said. Orange Police Lt. Dean Richards said Rice was arrested Feb.

A Marine sniper shown urinating on Taliban corpses in a video circulated on the Internet has been reduced in rank after pleading guilty to dereliction of duty and other charges. Sgt. Robert W. Richards was reduced to corporal for his role in the incident, in which four Marines in full combat gear were shown urinating on the bodies of three insurgents in Helmand province in southern Afghanistan in July 2011. Richards pleaded guilty at a court-martial at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina on Wednesday, according to a Marine Corps spokesman, Col. Sean Gibson.

The Santa Barbara band Dishwalla spikes its solid rock punch with hip-hop beats and urban soul, resulting in a big, U2-ish sound with a kick: dancing feet. At the Troubadour on Tuesday, the group hauled a Moog keyboard onstage and singer J.R. Richards fiddled laboriously with an elaborate sampling system, hinting at a heady display of rock-for-the-'90s wizardry, something a little high-risk for the straight-rock set. But that promise was never quite fulfilled.

There's a substantial difference of opinion between the man who runs Golden Boy Promotions and the former world-champion boxer the Los Angeles-based company is named after. A day after Golden Boy President Oscar De La Hoya said he wanted to re-start business with his former promoter and rival, Top Rank promotions Chairman Bob Arum, Golden Boy's Chief Executive Richard Schaefer said he doesn't. In a lengthy telephone conversation with The Times on Tuesday, De La Hoya said, “If anyone with Golden Boy has any differences with Bob, it's on them.

The documentary "Cesar's Last Fast" covers much the same ground as the dramatized "Cesar Chavez" released last month. Both center on the labor leader who in the 1960s helped to form the United Farm Workers union, organize the California grape workers' strike and foment a nationwide boycott of table grapes. Although "Cesar's Last Fast" extends the coverage by two decades, the same criticisms lodged against "Cesar Chavez" are applicable here: Richard Ray Perez's documentary concerns the myth more than the man. Perez has made a commendable effort rounding up archival footage, photographs and interviewees.

Were they grasping at straws or coaxing small embers into becoming flames when the Kings repeatedly pointed out that their best players played better in the team's third straight playoff loss to San Jose than in the first two defeats? Better, in this case, is a relative term. And despite a more intense and effective effort by the top players who must carry the load, the Kings still lost, 4-3, in overtime. Now, they must defeat the Sharks on Thursday at Staples Center to avoid being swept - and to prolong a season that only a few weeks ago held great promise for another long postseason run. "It's a good opportunity for us to show - everybody's kind of writing us off right now - a good opportunity to show how resilient we are right now as a group," forward Mike Richards said Wednesday after the Kings' optional practice in El Segundo.

The Kings are the only team in the Western Conference to be mired in a 3-0 playoff hole, which is why there was more talk Wednesday about 2010 than their 2012 Stanley Cup championship resume. There is something special about rallying from an 3-0 series deficit, so extraordinary that it has happened only three times in NHL history. Current Kings Mike Richards and Jeff Carter are members of that select club, having accomplished the feat when they were with the Philadelphia Flyers, who pulled off the trick against the Boston Bruins in 2010.

In the latest sign that business interests are coalescing around his candidacy, Los Angeles County supervisorial candidate Bobby Shriver was endorsed Friday by former Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan. Riordan cited Shriver's time on the Santa Monica City Council and his business and nonprofit backgrounds in announcing his support for the candidate. Shriver is seeking to replace Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky on the five-member Board of Supervisors. "The job of Los Angeles County supervisor is a challenging and important one," Riordan said in a prepared statement.

In so many ways, the paths of Dr. A. Richard Grossman and firefighters crossed. When firefighters pulled badly burned people out of the flames, they took them straight to Grossman, a plastic and reconstructive surgeon who pioneered the comprehensive care of burn patients. When the firefighters themselves were burned on the job, they went to him too. On Sunday, hundreds of uniformed firefighters, nurses and former patients gathered beneath the burning flame of the Los Angeles Fire Department's Fallen Firefighters Memorial in Hollywood to honor the doctor's life.

I must take issue with T. J. Richards' letter. Competition in today's market is especially stiff. If agents are to be successful, they have to look the part, or they are going to lose out to the other guy who looks more professional. And of the more than 300,000 real estate licensees in California, relatively few are lucky enough to afford "sun-roofed Mercedes," and "laugh all the way to the bank." As agents, we spend hours preparing competitive market analyses for sellers to give them a realistic idea of what they can expect for their home--only to have them list their property with another agent who tells them what they want to hear, which is a violation of the code of ethics anyway.

A choice between the sacred and the secular is not a decision for a nun, so Mother Shaun Vergauwan and Sister Mary Richards will not be making the trip to the Final Four this weekend in Detroit, the Meriden Record-Journal reported. They were invited by Connecticut Coach Jim Calhoun, who for two decades has had a special relationship with the Franciscan Sisters of the Eucharist. Vergauwan and Richards were in St. Petersburg, Fla.

"How you doin', baby?" Marlon Wayans said, leaning down to kiss a doll on the lips. The toy, a prop from Wayans' latest movie, "A Haunted House 2," was propped up in a chair across the table from the actor at a stuffy Beverly Hills restaurant. The doll, named Abigail, was meant to resemble a creepy figurine from 2013's "The Conjuring": Both shared the same dead green eyes, sooty peasant dress and pigtail braids. Wayans, 41, has long been known for his outrageous comic taste. He dressed as a Caucasian female FBI agent in "White Chicks" and has been poking fun at the horror genre for years, launching the hit "Scary Movie" parody franchise in 2000.

Reading is such an improbable idea -- a miracle, really. Yet simple squiggles on a page, arranged just so, can convey ideas that change the way we think or introduce to us characters we love for a lifetime. In celebration of reading -- and of this weekend's Los Angeles Times Festival of Books -- we asked four readers (who also happen to be writers) to celebrate books that mattered in their lives. The book was called "The Royal Road to Romance," and to a pre-adolescent boy with a fear of anything girlish, it sounded an awful lot like a bodice-ripper.
