VANCOUVER, Canada - Three games remaining in the regular season on the yellow brick road to the playoffs, and the Kings finally catch a break in the schedule. They don't play again until Wednesday. Kings Coach Darryl Sutter is always mulling schedules and timetables - maybe it's the lasting influence of his early farm years - and he pondered what to do during the three days between games. One consideration was having a mini-camp in scenic Banff, Alberta, before Wednesday's game at Calgary.

If he ever returns to prison, Jerry Dewayne Williams knows he'll probably never get out. To stay clear of trouble, he has left behind the Compton neighborhood where police knew him and cut ties with friends from wilder days. Once a hard partyer, the 43-year-old says he prefers the company of a mystery novel or a "Law and Order" episode on television. Williams is one of more than 14,000 felons who, under California's three-strikes law, face a possible life sentence if they commit another felony.

Everyone calls it the Century Freeway. But that's not its name. The freeway, which is under construction, actually has two names. West of the San Diego Freeway, it is officially designated the El Segundo Freeway; east of the San Diego Freeway it is the Norwalk Freeway. Now, in a tribute to Congressman Glenn M. Anderson (D-Long Beach), state senators have voted to rename the freeway in recognition of his work in funding numerous area transportation projects.

In 21st century high school sports, finding athletes who actually live in the same ZIP Code as their school is a major accomplishment. That makes Saturday's Northwest Division championship football game between El Segundo (90245) and Ojai Nordhoff (93023) a throwback final to the days when families went to the school in their own neighborhood. "It's an amazing thing," Nordhoff quarterback Tanner Workman said. "It means playing for something bigger than ourselves. " El Segundo players arrive at school via bicycle, skateboard, scooter or simply by walking.
