Robert Davis spent a significant part of the last six weeks standing by himself in the middle of Camelback Ranch. Every now and then, the security guard at the Dodgers' spring training complex would tell overzealous autograph seekers that they had to stand behind the ropes along the dirt paths leading from the clubhouse to the practice fields. Sometimes he made small talk with other workers. But interspaced in these countless hours of tedium were memories of a lifetime.

November 21, 2008 | Robert Abele, Abele is a freelance writer.
Thanks to a sandpapery mug, beady-eyed stare and menacing baritone, actor Robert Davi has carved out a sturdy career in movies and television playing hard cases on one side of the law or the other. So it's pleasant to report that his directorial debut, "The Dukes," while not without problems, at least showcases a tenderness and lightness of spirit that starts with Davi's performance as Danny, a doo-wop singer struggling to make ends meet in an unforgiving world for oldies acts.

Four people were injured in a four-car accident on the northbound San Diego Freeway about 1:30 p.m. Wednesday that forced two lanes to be closed for 1 1/2 hours, officials said. CHP Officer Keith Thornhill said three cars in the fast lane slowed to avoid wood debris just past the Fairview Road exit, but a fourth vehicle, a Ford flatbed truck driven by David Duerson, 31, of Santa Barbara, failed to slow down and collided with the rear of a 1984 Buick driven by Robert Davis, 64, of Lakewood.

I would like to add a few observations to the June 30 story on the West Hollywood Sheriff's Department. We who have demanded additional police for crime prevention have been told since April that the deputies were working overtime to meet our demands. Now we find that is not true, and that the city has been engaging in a cover-up. It also seems clear from the evasive nature of the official responses that the department was deliberately shorting the city on patrols. There is also a very serious question not yet addressed: What has happened in previous years?

Robert Davis, a retired sixth-grade teacher at New Orleans' McDonogh Elementary School, had just finished a free meal of Salisbury steak, mixed vegetables and blueberry pie, served at the Doubletree Hotel here for people made homeless by Hurricane Katrina. It was pleasant last Saturday night, he recalled, so he decided he would take an "evening constitutional" down Bourbon Street. His plan was to pick up a pack of Kool cigarettes and head back to the home of friends he was staying with here.

Moving from starter to reserve seems to have been best for Robert Davis--and the Loyola Marymount men's basketball team. Davis, a senior guard, has averaged a team-high 14.5 points, and 5.3 rebounds, in his four games as the Lions' sixth man. He had 18 points Saturday in a two-point loss to Nevada Las Vegas, Loyola Marymount's first defeat with Davis coming off the bench. Lion Coach Steve Aggers said Davis has flourished in a reserve role because he maintained a good attitude.

Early returns in the San Diego mayoral race showed that among 12 candidates to succeed Mayor Susan Golding, county Supervisor Ron Roberts and banker Peter Q. Davis appeared headed for a runoff. Golding is blocked by the city charter from seeking a third term. Golding, a Republican, did not endorse any candidate, although she is expected to make an endorsement before the November general election.

I knew that Robert Davi loved horseback riding and motorcycling and had a passion for boxing and kicking back with a cigar. What I didn't know was that the co-star of NBC's "Profiler," an hourlong crime drama on Saturday nights, has a singing voice--opera, no less. During our phone interview, I asked Davi, who's married and has two children, about how he was "discovered." Question: Is it true that you were overheard singing when you were in the eighth grade? Answer: Oh, yeah.
