For the first time in several seasons, there doesn't appear to be a clear-cut favorite in the Grossmont League baseball race, which begins today. "There is no dominant team in the league," Valhalla Coach John Marlow said. "It could be a five- or six-team race. It could go to anybody." Said Jim Saska, coach of Santana, defending league and San Diego Section 3-A champion: "You could see the league champ losing four games this year."

Los Angeles' top budget official Monday advised city leaders to resist the temptation to expand services, saying they should work instead toward eliminating a recurring deficit by 2018. In a 37-page report, City Administrative Officer Miguel Santana said a rebounding economy and greater stability in the city's finances have created new pressure to add or expand local government. He recommended that council members focus on initiatives to stabilize the budget, such as reducing entry-level city salaries and securing new healthcare concessions from the workforce.

Los Angeles City Hall's top budget analyst, who has succeeded in pushing an array of cost-cutting measures opposed by labor leaders, is becoming a lightning rod in the contest to replace Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. Union activists have been pressing top mayoral candidates to stake out positions on City Administrative Officer Miguel Santana and his approach to balancing the budget, which has included employee layoffs and furloughs, cuts in basic services and reductions in pension benefits.

Santana: An article and headline in Wednesday's Calendar section about Santana's upcoming residency at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas said the group would play about three shows a week at the hotel's concert venue, the Joint. The plan calls for Santana to appear about 36 times per year this year and in 2010, with performances concentrated into two- to three-week periods spaced throughout the year. The initial dates have the group playing four shows a week in the final week of May and the first two weeks of June.

Although Carlos Santana's comment about Seattle music being too white for his taste sounded racist, he is, in fact, quite accurate (Letters, Aug. 16). Since the time we moved to Seattle from L.A. in 1994, we have noticed the same fact . . . and we are white. Evolved from a largely Nordic community, this area offers more polka music than most humans can stand. Grunge is gone. Hip-hop is rare. We have only heard Latin music on the few occasions Los Lobos has visited. We miss the diversity, depth and tradition of cultures found in L.A. Santana is just being truthful.
