The fringed maroon shawl just wasn't him. Neither was the wheelchair. Nor the arm sling. Nor the leg cast. Nor the helping hands that were required to push his burly 200 pounds through the sliding glass door and onto the back-yard patio. But Buck Rodgers looked good. Fantastic, as a matter of fact, for someone who not only has to manage the Angels but who also managed to absorb the brunt of the May 21 accident that mangled a team bus bound from New York to Baltimore.

WASHINGTON - The House Ethics Committee announced Thursday that it has extended a preliminary probe into unspecified allegations against Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, the fourth-ranking House Republican who recently delivered her party's official response to the State of the Union address. The committee's action does not necessarily indicate that a violation of House rules has occurred, and McMorris Rodgers' office has denied any wrongdoing. The matter is in the hands of the 10-member ethics panel after the independent Office of Congressional Ethics referred the case in late December.

Angel Manager Buck Rodgers had a new cast put on his surgically repaired right elbow Friday and was in sufficient pain to convince doctors to keep him at Centinela Hospital through the weekend and probably until Tuesday. Rodgers, who has been upgraded to good condition, has begun rehabilitation exercises.

The centerpiece of the Republican party's attack on the Affordable Care Act following President Obama's State of the Union address this week was the story of "Bette. " Bette was an otherwise unidentified Washington state resident featured in the official GOP response to the Obama speech delivered by Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-Wash.). According to Rodgers , Bette had written her a letter stating that she had "hoped the president's healthcare law would save her money - but found out instead that her premiums were going up nearly $700 a month.

Angel Manager Buck Rodgers said he wasn't overly perturbed that his team got only two hits against three San Diego pitchers Monday during a 4-0 loss at Yuma, Ariz. "The obvious is we didn't pitch very well and we didn't hit very well," Rodgers said. "But we got a lot of work with men on base, and the pitchers kept us in the game even though there were a lot of hits. It could easily have been 8- or 9-0."

Film music/orchestra division makes its way up Cahuenga Pass each season, a natural alliance in the Hollywood Bowl concert season. Sunday's "The Big Picture: Rodgers and Hammerstein at the Movies" extended a real-time-meets-reel-time twist, showcasing the duo's musicals that made the transition from Broadway to Hollywood. Unlike other more instrumental movie music-focused Bowl shows, the concert linked and synced the live -- and reliably solid -- Hollywood Bowl Orchestra with archival on-screen singing, framed by the composer-lyricist team's first collaboration, "Oklahoma!

Re "A Boy's Face, a Man's Crime," editorial, May 18: The issue isn't what we should do with violent teenagers. It should be how we can prevent them from becoming violent in the first place. Kids need our respect and love. A kid who believes he is respected doesn't have to prove it by carrying a gun. Robert S. Rodgers Culver City

Re "Tax-Cut Hemorrhage," editorial, Aug. 29: Governments waste money through huge bureaucracies and fraud. Tax cuts keep money in the hands of private citizens, where it's used more efficiently. Also, inflation, not tax cuts or high deficits, leads to high interest rates. Congress should make last year's tax cut permanent--and seek even greater cuts. Robert S. Rodgers Culver City

The biggest winners of the night were also the most silent. It's unsurprising that the duo Daft Punk didn't lift their helmets to collect their bounty of Grammys, which included album and record of the year, leaving mostly Pharrell Williams to do the honor.  Backstage two of their collaborators, Paul Williams and Nile Rodgers, were reveling in their big night.  For Rodgers the evening was especially poignant. In 2011 the legendary disco-funk producer-songwriter and Chic guitarist was stricken with “aggressive” prostate cancer (he documented it on a blog)

Aaron Rodgers is scheduled to start at quarterback for Green Bay in a winner-take-all game at Chicago on Sunday. Rodgers missed the Packers' last seven games after suffering a fractured collarbone in a Nov. 4 loss to the Bears. The winner of Green Bay-Chicago will be the NFC North champion, while the loser is eliminated from postseason contention. Packers Coach Mike McCarthy announced the Rodgers decision during his regular Thursday news conference. "Aaron Rodgers is our starting quarterback," he said.

Had Steve Jobs commissioned a song, it would have felt like Daft Punk's "Get Lucky. " Modern but ageless. Sleek, streamlined, memorable and futuristic. "We're up all night to get some, we're up all night for good fun," Pharrell optimistically declares, imagining joy on the horizon. Released in April, the single went on to soundtrack the year's wedding receptions, bar mitzvahs, drives along the Pacific Coast Highway and hairbrush-as-microphone bedroom singalongs, no small feat for two helmeted Frenchmen.

Aaron Rodgers looked fine on the practice field Thursday. It doesn't mean he is going to play. There was no definitive word on whether Rodgers would be medically cleared to return from his left collarbone injury in time for Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. It was just another day in the guessing game called "When Will the Franchise Quarterback Return" for the Packers. Coach Mike McCarthy indicated he would name his starter Friday. Rodgers also made several references to his playing status being an "organizational decision.

The young British dance duo Disclosure drew nearly universal acclaim this year with their exuberant debut album, "Settle. " But if there's one guy right now with more club-scene mojo than Guy and Howard Lawrence, it's Nile Rodgers, the influential Chic guitarist whose guest turn in Daft Punk's summer smash " Get Lucky " has introduced him to a fresh generation of groove-seekers. So it makes all kinds of sense that the Lawrence brothers would enlist Rodgers for a new single on their label Method Records.

On the same day you ran Mike Epstein's letter urging time for the philosophies of Angel honchos Herzog and Rodgers to work, it was noted that the Angels have signed Dick Schofield, who hit .225 last year, to a $1.5-million contract. To further add some punch to their attack, perhaps they should next go after Bob Uecker as a backup to Lance Parrish. I also note that Epstein, who hit 30 home runs as a Washington Senator, didn't have quite the sock of Schofield, batting .215 and .161 in his two seasons with the Angels.

In her autopsy of "Ishtar," Broeske quotes Guy McElwaine as saying, "How much of the negative was covered by outside revenue sources? Imagine that I'm not stupid. Assume that we had a good portion of that negative covered before we ever started filming." So who was stupid? Let me guess. Elaine May discovered a secret map or something that the U.S. government badly needed, and to get that map Ronald Reagan agreed to finance $40 million for May's motion picture, even though everyone knew she was a total loon who couldn't be trusted to take a passport photo for under a million.

Tough news for the Green Bay Packers. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers confirmed Tuesday he sustained a broken collarbone in Monday night's loss to Chicago, and doctors have not given him a timetable for his return. "I feel like I've been a quick healer in the past, and I'm hopeful this will be on the short end of whatever prognosis comes us," Rodgers said on his regular Tuesday radio show on 540 AM in Wisconsin. Rodgers said he tried to play after suffering the injury, "but at that point, the amount of pain I was in, it was rough.

Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers have gotten past a shaky start to string together four straight wins for a half-game lead over the Detroit Lions at the top of the NFC North standings. If he hadn't already, Rodgers established himself as a contender for MVP honors with a stellar showing on national television Sunday night, throwing for 285 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions for a 130.6 passer rating in a 44-31 victory over the Minnesota Vikings. As Chris Wesseling of NFL.com pointed out , Rodgers did so without the services of Randall Cobb, James Jones and Jermichael Finely, who had combined to catch 54% of his passes this season.
