2013 was a very good year for writers with many years behind them. When she was 81 years old, author Alice Munro published her 16th short story collection, "Dear Life," and told Canadian news outlets that she was done with writing. At 82, after she won the 2013 Nobel Prize for Literature, Munro admitted she might not be ready to quit after all. "I have promised to retire but now and then I get an idea," she told the Wall Street Journal. Writing is an art that, with persistent ideas and enduring talent, can be carried on for a lifetime.

Tanenbaum, are on the April 12 ballot.

Tim Salter has been known to play the ponies on occasion looking for a little luck, so it came as no surprise the veteran Upland coach decided to gamble and go for two points and a victory during overtime Friday night against Corona Santiago. When quarterback Tyler Hilinski made a successful two-point conversion pass to Trevor Wright, Upland was able to pull out a 43-42 victory, its third in a row since starting the season being pummeled by Santa Ana Mater Dei and Westlake Village Oaks Christian.

The longstanding rivalry between Beverly Hills Mayor Maxwell Salter and Councilman Robert K. Tanenbaum resurfaced with surprising ferocity this week, during a council review of the Beverly Hills Family Y's financial troubles. In a meeting Tuesday, Salter blasted Tanenbaum, who chairs the Y's volunteer board of directors, for glossing over the deficit facing the organization, which since 1987 has received about $226,000 in city funds.

The age-old disconnect between father and son spirals through the techno-paranoiac overview of "A Number," with penetrating results. English dramatist Caryl Churchill's enigmatic one-act about human cloning receives a spare, arresting production by Rude Guerrilla Theater Company in Santa Ana. First staged in 2002 at the Royal Court with Michael Gambon and Daniel Craig, the title refers to the dilemma faced by Bernard (Mark Coyan), who confronts dad Salter (Vince Campbell) about his lineage at the outset.

Al Martinez's Dec. 15 column, "The Heart & Soul of Max Salter," was bittersweet. I wonder if the citizens of Beverly Hills are aware that at the time Salter was wrestling with his problems in the day-to-day operation of his business, he was diligently serving our city as mayor twice. When I asked him, "Why put in such long hours day and night?" he said, "I always took this beautiful city for granted; I feel it is time to pay back." The many seeds he planted while in office are now coming to fruition throughout the city.

Sitting there stroking his Mickey Mouse tie, round-faced and fully bearded, Max Salter looked a little like everyone's favorite uncle. But he was not a happy uncle. Everything he had built in the past 49 years seemed to be coming apart, a victim of changing tastes and economic decline. At age 75, after a lifetime of hard-won success, he was staring failure in the face. All but a few of the 65 clothing stores he had once owned had been shut down.

Tom McCarthy and James Salter are among the winners of the inaugural Donald Windham-Sandy M. Campbell Literature Prizes, announced Monday at Yale University's Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library.

The Riverside boy who shot and killed his neo-Nazi father had a history of violence since he was a toddler, but there was no indication that his father condoned such brutality, a mental health expert for the prosecution testified Monday. Clinical psychologist Anna Salter said the boy, who was 10 years old when he pulled the trigger, told her that his father tried hard to get the boy's violence under control - on occasion beating the child as punishment for an outburst. "He didn't know what else to do," Salter testified during the juvenile court proceeding in Riverside.

EIGHT years ago, in a presidential campaign far, far away, Republican candidate John McCain released his first book, the rightly acclaimed early-years autobiography "Faith of My Fathers." Written with the help of aide Mark Salter, "Faith" was a delightfully profane redemption tale of how an underachieving, hard-living Navy brat was broken, then made stronger, during his captivity in Vietnam.

The Lancers were runner-up in 1994 and semifinalists in '97 and '98. Salter, who lives in Westchester, said the opportunity to work close to home, the benefits available to teachers in a public school system and the chance to build a program were factors that caused him to change jobs.

Bookshelves can be found throughout James Salter's house, arranged alphabetically and by subject matter. When the author's eye happens to fall upon the fiction section, letter "S," he will on occasion give in and reach for one of his own novels. "I might say, 'Ah, here's "Light Years." Let's have a look.' And I turn to a page and I might read three to four pages, hoping to be filled with satisfaction," he explains.
