We're at the point where any San Diego Chargers victory can be summarized in two words. This goes back to Nov. 19, when between updates I saw a 24-7 San Diego deficit against Denver turn into a 35-27 Chargers victory and I text-messaged a friend to ask what happened. My buddy's reply: "LT happened." Flash-forward to Sunday, when the Chargers had to deal with a strong Oakland Raiders defensive effort, a shaky performance by quarterback Philip Rivers and a 14-7 Raiders lead in the fourth quarter.

San Diego Opera has placed its longtime general and artistic director Ian Campbell on paid leave after a three-decade tenure that has been rocked in recent weeks by public and internal criticism over his role in the decision to close the company. The opera said in a news release Friday that Campbell and his ex-wife, Ann Spira-Campbell, who is a high-ranking administrator in the company, have both been placed on leave. A company spokesman said in an interview that the Campbells will no longer be involved in the day-to-day operations of the organization, but they are still being paid and are technically still part of the company.

A state court judge in San Diego has upheld new state rules requiring election workers to recount ballots in 10% of precincts when elections are close. Election officials in San Diego, Riverside, San Bernardino and Kern counties argued that the recounts are unnecessary, expensive and may delay the certification of election results. Under old rules, workers only needed to recount ballots in 1% of precincts. Tuesday's ruling means the new standard will go into effect for the state's Feb. 5 presidential primary.

The U.S. Border Patrol intercepted a semi-truck on Interstate 8 that was hauling 61 illegal immigrants Saturday night, agents said. The discovery was one of the largest of its kind in recent years in the San Diego area. The immigrants were crowded behind boxes inside the cargo container, agents said. No one was hurt, they said, though in the past such incidents have resulted in injuries and suffocation. Agents pulled over the truck on the eastbound lanes near the Kitchen Creek Road exit, about 40 miles east of San Diego.

Dist. Atty. Bonnie Dumanis said Thursday she understands the public's frustration with her office and the Oceanside Police Department for not releasing details about the March 15 incident in which an off-duty San Diego police officer shot and wounded a woman and her young son in their car. But she said that releasing information could jeopardize the investigation. In a television interview, Dumanis suggested that the investigation was being hampered by Rachel Silva's refusal to talk to police.

Although I don't wish to deny cognitive psychologist Kristen Taylor her Mother's Day indulgence, I do wish that she'd balanced her writing with more cogitating ("Wife Envy," Metropolis, May 11). For example, Taylor, self-amused, broadly swipes at fathers' parenting and household management skills, then gets serious and specific about the amount of housework men do. However, she neglects to state whether men are out of the house and in the work world twice the hours that women are, perhaps explaining why they do less housework.

SAN DIEGO -- The percentage of parents opting for the "personal belief exemption" to avoid vaccinations for their children in kindergarten has tripled in a decade, county health officials said Wednesday. The result is that 4.5% of the 43,000-plus kindergartners in San Diego County schools are missing one or more of the recommended vaccinations, said public health officer Dr. Wilma Wooten. That totals more than 1,900 students. Among the 14 diseases that vaccinations can prevent are measles, mumps, polio, chickenpox and whooping cough, Wooten said.

Given that local television news personalities are the closest things to celebrities in San Diego, with the exception of a few sports figures, politicians and well-publicized zoo animals, televising the presentation of the local Emmys live Saturday night should have made for great television. Would San Diego's hottest couple, Kimberly Hunt and Billy Ray Smith, be there? Would Michael Tuck show up with new plastic surgery?
