"Tomorrow they will wear another face," is how Ralph Waldo Emerson began the closing couplet of his poem "Experience. " And now, the Emerson String Quartet wears, for the first time in 34 years, another face. Founded in 1976, the year of America's bicentennial, this commandingly all-American string quartet, a national symbol of sorts, welcomes a new nationality. British cellist Paul Watkins recently replaced David Finckel. "Succession swift," the Transcendentalist poet and essayist also wrote in "Experience.

Ducks owner Henry Samueli, whose management company operates the Honda Center, said Wednesday he doesn't anticipate bringing an NBA team to the arena as a tenant any time soon but he remains committed to backing his money-losing NHL team and maintaining a state-of-the-art arena. Samueli and his wife, Susan, bought the Ducks from the Walt Disney Co. in 2005 and have since spent $80 million on arena improvements. That includes upgrading locker rooms to NBA standards and undertaking the $20-million Grand Terrace entertainment project that will open Oct. 10, coinciding with the Ducks' home opener.

Henry Samueli, the billionaire co-founder of Irvine-based Broadcom Corp., is gambling possible prison time that an appeals court will accept a plea deal that a lower-court judge rejected in one of the nation's largest cases of stock-option backdating. Samueli is leaving his guilty plea in place as he pursues the appeal, his attorney, Gordon Greenberg, said at a hearing in Santa Ana before U.S. District Judge Cormac J. Carney. In June, Samueli pleaded guilty to lying to investigators about backdating at Broadcom.

If Henry Samueli could persuade an NBA owner to move his team to the Arrowhead Pond and that owner wanted to identify his team with Los Angeles, Samueli would not stop him and the Anaheim City Council could not stop him. Samueli owns the Ducks, runs the Pond and wants an NBA franchise there, either through purchase or by persuading an NBA owner to move.

Requests heated up after his business partner, Henry Nicholas, donated $1.3 million to South Coast Repertory in January.

Broadcom Corp. and the Orange County Sheriff's Department. Two highly visible operations headed until recently by relatively young men of power and charm. The kind of guys who inspired others while basking in their own success and the prospect of more of it to come. Until the feds came calling, that is. The two -- Broadcom co-founder Henry Samueli and former Sheriff Mike Carona -- have spent 2008 in the cross-hairs of federal prosecutors.

Anaheim Mayor Tom Tait called the meeting "historic" at its opening, and said after the vote he was "stoked" by the council's action.

Ducks owners Henry and Susan Samueli , in their first comments since the NHL lifted its suspension of Henry in November, said they remain committed to the franchise for the long term despite losing "double-digit millions" and seeing the team's slide since its 2007 Stanley Cup triumph extend to missing the playoffs last season. "We have so much passion for the team," Susan Samueli said Thursday. "It just makes us appreciate the Stanley Cup even more, that we had a difficult year last year.

Federal prosecutors decided Friday not to appeal a judge's recent dismissals of criminal stock options backdating charges against Broadcom Corp. co-founders Henry Samueli and Henry T. Nicholas III. The decision brought to a close a two-year legal battle between the billionaire executives and the Justice Department. Late Friday, Nicholas released a statement that said, "The decision by the Department of Justice reconfirms my faith in our criminal justice system." In December, U.S. District Judge Cormac J. Carney dismissed the charges against Samueli and Nicholas, accusing prosecutors of a "shameful" campaign to intimidate witnesses and obtain unjustified convictions.

The Securities and Exchange Commission on Thursday dropped a stock-options backdating lawsuit against four Broadcom Corp. figures, the latest legal victory for the Irvine chip company. SEC attorney Molly M. White said the commission chose not to pursue the litigation against Broadcom co-founders Henry Samueli and Henry T. Nicholas III and two former executives "after careful consideration" of comments that a judge made about the case at a hearing in January. The lawsuit, filed in 2008 in the Santa Ana federal courthouse, had sought civil penalties against the men for failing to disclose that they had backdated stock-option grants.

Samueli, who founded Broadcom in 1991 with friend Henry T. Nicholas III, resumed his former positions in December after a federal judge threw out his guilty plea in a stock- option backdating case, said Bob Marsocci, Broadcom's vice president for corporate communications.

A federal appeals court panel today refused to reinstate a proposed plea bargain that guaranteed Anaheim Ducks owner Henry Samueli that he would spend no time in prison as a result of alleged stock manipulation at Irvine microchip designer Broadcom Corp. The three-judge panel of the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals did not rule on the merits of the arguments by Samueli, the billionaire co-founder and former chairman of Broadcom. It said instead that it has no jurisdiction at this time, ruling that Samueli must wait until after he is sentenced before appealing the rejection of his plea agreement.

Ducks owner Henry Samueli, spared a criminal record when a judge this week set aside his guilty plea in a stock backdating probe, got a near-apology Friday from NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman, who had suspended Samueli from June 2008 until last month. "In retrospect, it is regrettable and unfortunate that the circumstances at that time caused the Samuelis and the Anaheim Ducks to endure any suspension," Bettman said in a statement. "We were pleased to welcome the Samuelis back to the NHL when the suspension was lifted this past Nov. 12."

In a dramatic twist, a federal judge on Wednesday cleared Broadcom Corp. co-founder Henry Samueli of a criminal charge of lying to investigators in a probe of improper accounting at the Irvine microchip designer. U.S. District Judge Cormac J. Carney a year ago had rejected a plea bargain for Samueli because it did not allow for any jail time for the Orange County billionaire and philanthropist, who owns the Anaheim Ducks hockey team. But in a seeming about-face, Carney dismissed the felony case.
