In all of film history, there are few characters iconic enough to speak across generations and national divide. One of those is the Terminator, a grim hallucination from the future, a totem of invincible, implacable masculinity. "Everybody on the planet can tell you the Terminator wears a black leather jacket," says director Jonathan Mostow. "This character is so burned into our movie consciousness. There are very few mythologies that are known all over the world."

He's a confessed rabble-rouser, the incarnation of everything you think Utah isn't. Truth be told, there are those who still can't reckon how Rocky Anderson got himself elected mayor. He's a lapsed Mormon, twice divorced. Former president of the American Civil Liberties Union board, anti-death penalty activist, Democrat. Marshal of the gay pride parade. A fan of the Dalai Lama, the Kennedy brothers and artist Peter Max.

Pinch-hitter Ben Petrick singled home the winning run in the 12th inning and the Colorado Rockies, despite Barry Bonds reaching base six times, defeated the San Francisco Giants, 3-2, Friday night at Denver. Bonds, leading the majors with 60 home runs, went three for three with three walks. He hit a tying double in the eighth inning. With 20 games remaining, Bonds needs 10 homers to tie the record of 70 set by Mark McGwire in 1998.

Maybe the Dodgers could play worse on the road, though that might require extraordinary measures. They have been awful away from Dodger Stadium and their poor performance continued Tuesday night in an 11-8 loss to the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field. The club with the National League West's worst road record dropped to 2-6 on their trip that ends today, and 8-15 overall before 41,563. The Rockies pounded reliever Matt Herges (1-4) for three hits and three runs in 1 2/3 innings.

The round of hugs was over. The high-fives had long ended. It wasn't until much later Friday night, when Al Walin walked alone into Magnolia's empty gym, that the significance of his 400th coaching victory became clear. The Magnolia coach walked to center court and glanced at the pictures and jerseys of former players Mike Goff and Zamiro Bennem that adorned the wall.

Beneath the scrubby hillsides east of Santa Clarita are millions of tons of sand and gravel--two precious commodities for the booming building industry in Southern California. At least five companies already excavate gravel in the area. But a proposal by Azusa-based Transit Mixed Concrete to dig 78 million tons from a 460-acre site just outside the Santa Clarita city limits has residents fuming.
