Is Winona Ryder's case of sticky fingers contagious? A day after the film star was convicted of felony grand theft and vandalism for shoplifting $5,560.40 in designer goods from Saks Fifth Avenue in Beverly Hills, a confidential report turned up missing from her file at the Santa Monica Courthouse. Both Santa Monica police and the Los Angeles County Probation Department are investigating the highly unusual case, according to Ken Kondo, a Probation Department spokesman.

Just after telling reporters that Patrick Reed already has "street cred," Tom Watson showed his with his message to the U.S. Ryder Cup team that he will captain. "We have something to prove," Watson said about the U.S. team's recent losses in the Ryder Cup, including squandering a big lead in singles play on the final day to Europe two years ago. "If that's the only thing I have to say to the team, I'll say, 'Remember 2012. Remember 2012. What are you going to do about it?' " Watson was at Newport Beach Country Club, site of the 20th Toshiba Classic, which begins Friday.

Re "Warning, Probation for Ryder," Dec. 7: The justice system in L.A. County has finally gone insane. Dist. Atty. Steve Cooley and Deputy Dist. Atty. Ann Rundle are the people who need counseling. The Winona Ryder trial and sentencing were a vendetta. Ryder was accused of shoplifting -- not a violent crime. Rundle actually passed on a murder case to one of her colleagues so she could prosecute Ryder for what must be one of the weakest felony cases in the history of L.A. What a waste of taxpayer money!

Thank you very much for showing that Winona Ryder "Acting as Fast as She Can," Dec. 9) is a meritorious young woman rather than a silly teen-ager. Ryder is one of the best actresses out there today. It doesn't matter if she's 19 or 40, she knows what she wants and she's getting it. VALENTINA SILVA Norwalk

Tony Scott is a director who makes the trains run on time. Not just the specific subway cars of his efficient thriller "The Taking of Pelham 123," but the metaphorical trains of action movie pyrotechnics in general. Though he's worked somewhat in the shadow of his more thematically adventurous brother Ridley, Scott has earned his Hollywood reputation as a shooter, someone who knows how to make things move like lightning on screen. Collaborating here with stars Denzel Washington and John Travolta, Scott puts those talents to use in this crisp, effective New York subway hostage drama.
I've always liked trucks. The bigger, the better. I hauled oranges as a teenager, but none of the trips was more than 150 miles. Later, as an adult, I owned a small avocado grove. That justified buying a truck of my own, but it was only a pickup. So when my wife's parents--now well into their 90s--finally decided last fall that it was time to move to a retirement home, opportunity smiled.
Three have been fired and 10 have quit. Nine have been promoted. Two have killed suspects while on duty. And one stands accused of falsifying evidence in a murder case. For most of the 44 Los Angeles Police Department officers labeled "problem officers" in the landmark 1991 Christopher Commission report, the past four years have been tumultuous. The commission said its intention was to illustrate, not define, what it called "the problem of excessive force in the LAPD."
One Potato, Two Potato, Three Potato, Fore! Until 1975, when work began to construct a golf course in England that would prepare European players for the U.S. tour, the undeveloped land about a 20-minute drive outside industrial Birmingham was a potato patch. Now, it is The Belfry, a long course with a lot of water and sand. The Europeans might have more of an advantage on one of their traditional links courses, where the gales and gorse often frustrate Americans.

The golf world is currently focused on the Tour Championship in Atlanta, but there is also news from New York this week, where officials announced that Bethpage Black will host the 2019 PGA Championship and the 2024 Ryder Cup. The Long Island venue has long been known as "The People's Country Club" and has previously hosted the Barclays and two U.S. Opens. Those events could pale in comparison to the combination of an international competition and a rowdy New York crowd. "This venue, this course, this city, is going to take the Ryder Cup to a place that it has never been before," PGA of America President Ted Bishop said.

Truck rental company Ryder announced Thursday it would make 39 light- and medium-duty vehicles powered by compressed natural gas available for lease or rent in California. Because of their lighter frame, the Greenkraft and Navistar trucks powered by 6.0-liter GM engines will tap existing natural gas stations throughout the state. The more than 300 heavier-duty natural gas trucks in Ryder's existing fleet require stations specially equipped to handle large commercial tractor-trailers.

The Kings' official Twitter account received a game misconduct penalty Tuesday … from the Kings' front office. Kevin Ryder, of KROQ's "Kevin & Bean" morning show, handled the Twitter posts for the Kings' Stanley Cup playoff game against the San Jose Sharks on Tuesday. He took over after the first period, with embarrassing results for the team. At one point Ryder made light of sexual assault when describing a play that happened in front of the San Jose Sharks' net when the Kings' Anze Kopitar was knocked to the ice. Complaints poured in via reply tweets.

When Eve's last album was released, Kanye West was known only as a producer, Drake was playing an awkward teenager on Canadian TV and waitress Nicki Minaj was slinging Red Lobster's famous cheddar biscuits. To say a lot has changed is an understatement. More than 11 years after that album, countless delays, a focus on acting and more than a few growing pains, the Grammy Award winner's long gestating fourth album, "Lip Lock," dropped last week. "For some reason it all came together at this moment.

Tom Watson, who captained the U.S. to a Ryder Cup victory the last time the U.S. won in Europe in 1993, will return as captain for the 2014 team. And he has an important supporter in his corner: Tiger Woods. “I'd like to congratulate Tom Watson on his selection as Ryder Cup captain,” Woods said in a statement. “I think he's a really good choice. Tom knows what it takes to win, and that's our ultimate goal. I hope I have the privilege of joining him on the 2014 United States Team.” The Americans have lost seven of the last nine Ryder Cups.

Michael Ryder had two goals and an assist Thursday, and Tim Thomas made 35 saves to earn his fourth shutout of the season as the Boston Bruins defeated the Ducks, 6-0. "It found a way to turn in their favor in a hurry and we didn't respond well to adversity," Ducks Coach Randy Carlyle said. "That's a first-place hockey club. They played well and stuck to their system."

MEDINAH, Ill. - Hold off on that red, white and blue party. Throw a little more ice on that champagne. And for goodness sake, don't get Ian Poulter stirred up. The Americans might yet win back this Ryder Cup, but the Europeans aren't going down without a fight. Poulter and Luke Donald defiantly kept the transatlantic clash from turning into a runaway, raining down European birdies on Medinah's back nine during Saturday's four-balls to hold off a pair of American rallies and stay within striking distance of a miracle.

MEDINAH, Ill. - U.S. Ryder Cup captain Davis Love III will take some flak for benching Team Terrific (Phil Mickelson and Keegan Bradley) in favor of Team Tiger (Woods and Steve Stricker). The Terrifics are 3-0 and made such quick work of Lee Westwood and Luke Donald in morning foursomes, they were finished by brunch. The Tigers - despite Woods' electric back nines - have had as much success together as Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries. But before you go hating on Love, keep this in mind: Mickelson asked out. Asked if he considered putting The Terrifics out Saturday afternoon, Love replied from behind the 14th green: "There was a thought.
