Some musicians wait what seems like a lifetime for the chance to record their own album. Ruben Gonzalez did. Literally. It took the 82-year-old Cuban pianist more than 50 years, from the day he started playing with the legendary orchestra of Arsenio Rodriguez, to 1996, when Ry Cooder arrived in Havana and started recording an album with the Afro-Cuban All Stars. Gonzalez played the piano on that record. And then he played on another one, the Grammy-winning "Buena Vista Social Club."

When Bill Shanahan, general manager of the San Bernardino Spirit, talks about first baseman Ruben Gonzalez, he is quick to mention a secondary skill, not of real value on the field. Gonzalez, as Shanahan will attest, plays a mean game of video baseball. Recently, the two squared off in a best-of-seven series, with a Spirit dress shirt on the line. Gonzalez won the series and the shirt, four games to one.

The brilliant-red "BEAM ON" sign surged to life in UCI Medical Center's cancer unit, alerting Ruben Gonzalez that the radiation treatment had begun. Gonzalez, a volunteer driver for the American Cancer Society of Orange County, knows the treatments don't usually last long--10 minutes is typical. Still, on this recent Friday, Gonzalez had enough time for a cup of coffee before taking home the two patients he had taken to the Orange center.

It's just past 3 a.m. as Ray Orozco and Ruben Gonzalez fly down the Pacific Coast Highway on this crisp summer morning. It's quiet on the road at this hour, and the moon is just light enough to give them a spectacular ocean view. They set the cruise control on their way to downtown Los Angeles, gliding along as fast as their borrowed pickup will take them. Their own aging Chevy has broken down again, and to reach the L. A.

Attorneys filed an appeal Tuesday of a ruling that upheld a "living wage" law for employees of hotels along Century Boulevard near Los Angeles International Airport. Two months ago, a three-judge panel upheld the Los Angeles City Council's decision to pass the law, which was approved after the hotels attempted to force the issue onto the municipal election ballot. Business leaders complained about the law. But after they collected 100,000 signatures to challenge it, the City Council rewrote the ordinance and passed it again without taking it to the voters.
