Culver City, in those days--forty-five years ago--was nearly as urban in spirit as it is now. But there were still bits of unoccupied land, including especially the riverbed, where the young people who hung around Jute Smith's Sunset Stables could ride. But I didn't know much about it. I was a boy of 12 then, and my home and Ben's stables were in Brentwood. The Sunset Stables kids I knew about mostly by hearsay.

Canadian star goalkeeper Shannon Szabados made her debut in a men's professional hockey league when she made 27 saves for the Columbus Cottonmouths in a 4-3 loss to the visiting Knoxville Ice Bears in a Southern Professional Hockey League game Saturday night. Szabados had not played in a game since helping Canada win the gold medal in women's ice hockey at the Sochi Olympics last month, although she did participate in an Edmonton Oilers practice when the NHL team was in need of an extra goalie.

A new "Worst Mother in America" is crowned every week. Currently wearing the tiara of disapproval: June Shannon, mother of "Toddlers & Tiaras" breakout star Alana Thompson, a.k.a. Honey Boo Boo, whose spinoff show, "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo," premiered Aug. 8 on TLC. The new show covers both Alana's forays into the hair-spray-lacquered pageant circuit and the rural Georgia family's decidedly less glamorous downtime activities: four-wheeling through the mud, telling fart jokes and eating cheese puffs.

The Edmonton Oilers were in a quandary Wednesday. They had traded backup goalie Ilya Bryzgalov to Minnesota and newly acquired goalie Viktor Fasth had yet to arrive from the Ducks. That left them with just one goalie, Ben Scrivens, for practice. Unless they wanted to run Scrivens ragged, what to do? Place a call to Shannon Szabados, the goalie for Canada's women's hockey team, which just won a gold medal at the Sochi Games. "She's pretty good," Oilers right winger Jordan Eberle told Chris Purdy of the Canadian Press.

In 2005, Deborah Kincaid called her estranged husband for an uncomfortable conversation. With the police listening in, she accused Jeffrey Kincaid of sexually abusing her daughter, Shannon, who was 11 when the couple married. When she asked why he had abused the girl, he said he didn't remember the abuse but continued on an enigmatic aside. "I don't know. I don't remember," he said. "You may be right. I'm beginning to believe that you're right. I — I can't make sense of it. " This week, an appellate court ruled that Kincaid could sue her ex-husband in civil court for allegedly causing her daughter's eventual death by suicide, based on recorded conversations between the couple and between Jeffrey Kincaid and his stepdaughter.

T.J., great piece on Coach Wooden [April 30]. Somehow three hours condensed into 1,071 words leaves this reader wanting more. How about usurping Plaschke's space like Shannon Brown took Jordan Farmar's minutes: long overdue with little backlash from the masses all in the name of the greater good? Fred Nunez Manhattan Beach

My wife and I are having a tiff. One of those woman-of-the-'80s-versus- macho- mentality-of-the-'50s imbroglios. In her bitterness, she has accused me of being intractable, anachronistic and utterly blind to reality. I suppose I am. But it's for her own good. I say that because, right now, my tough-guy posturing is all that stands between her and a bottomless pit of grief.

His backup plan is a change of scenery -- Shannon has been painting sets in Hollywood for 26 years, most recently for TV shows such as "Cold Case," "Pushing Daisies" and "Without a Trace." He has been able to make good money, earning $100,000 or more a year. Recently, though, the Huntington Beach resident took steps to apply for a contractor's license, concerned that the TV work would dry up and he wouldn't be able to pay his ex-wife the $3,200 a month required for spousal and child support.

As a child, Shannon Studstill sold gum to her classmates to finance her weekly trips to the video game arcade. That early investment in "Pac-Man" and "Defender" would pay huge dividends. Studstill, one of the most powerful women in the male-dominated world of video games, now runs Sony Santa Monica Studio, the development group responsible for the company's hit franchise "God of War" and the publisher of such critically acclaimed independent titles as "Journey. " The 43-year-old executive is an anomaly in an industry known for its underrepresentation of women.

After cutting former Lakers forward Metta World Peace, the New York Knicks have since increased their collection of ex-Lakers. On Thursday, the Knicks signed Earl Clark and Shannon Brown to 10-day contracts. Clark joined the Lakers a year ago from Orlando as part of the Dwight Howard trade. Injuries thrust the 6-foot-10 forward into a sizable role. He played in 59 games (including 36 starts) while averaging 7.3 points and 5.5 rebounds a game. In July, Clark signed a two-year, $8.5-million contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Lakers are well-represented throughout the NBA. On Saturday, former Lakers center Andrew Bynum signed with the Indiana Pacers. Guard Shannon Brown, who won two titles with Bynum and the Lakers, also signed a 10-day contract on Saturday with the San Antonio Spurs. On Friday night, the Lakers fell to the Charlotte Bobcats, 110-100, a team armed with four ex-Lakers. In total, 14 former Lakers are under contract with other teams -- more if training camp invites and traded draft picks are included: Charlotte Bobcats: Ramon Sessions, Josh McRoberts, Jannero Pargo and Chris Douglas-Roberts (training camp invite)

Former Lakers shooting guard Shannon Brown was traded by the Phoenix Suns on Friday to the Washington Wizards. His stay in Washington was brief. The Wizards waived Brown on Monday, despite his $3.5-million guaranteed salary.  If he clears waivers in 48 hours, Brown will become a free agent. Originally acquired by the Lakers in 2009 in a trade with the Charlotte Bobcats, Brown helped the Lakers win back-to-back NBA titles in 2009 and 2010. It's unclear if the Lakers would be interested in a reunion with the athletic, 6-foot-4 guard.

SAN DIEGO - A 67-year-old woman on Thursday accused Mayor Bob Filner of sexually harassing her even as accusations about his conduct toward women were about to become public. Peggy Shannon, a part-time employee at the senior citizens service desk at City Hall, said Filner continually made sexually inappropriate comments to her about wanting to begin a personal relationship. She said he once kissed her on the lips and on another occasion asked her: "Do you think I could go eight hours straight?"

Actor Michael Shannon's recent high-profile run of villains turns to Superman's nemesis, General Zod, in Warner Bros.' "Man of Steel," opening June 14. Shannon, 38, lives in Brooklyn with actress Kate Arrington and their daughter, Sylvia. Do you consider General Zod a bad guy? No, I don't consider him a bad guy. He's a general just trying to do his job. Ask any general what their purpose in life is and it's to defend whatever people they happened to be aligned with. He's aligned with Krypton.

Manila, 1986 turf champion and favorite to be elected 1987 Horse of the Year, broke a cannon bone Thursday morning and is being retired to stud, United Press International has learned. The 4-year-old son of Lyphard came up lame shortly after he cooled following a three-quarter-mile workout at Belmont Park. Sources said Manila worked well and walked off the track in apparent good health. The injury, to the lower leg, showed up after the colt returned to the barn of his trainer, LeRoy Jolley.

When Jack Miles makes the statement (referring to the 1950s), ". . . I cannot imagine a decade of American history to which I would less like to return," I can't help but wonder to which decade he would prefer to return ("Please, Don't Bring Back the '50s," Nov. 1). The depression of the '30s? The World War II of the '40s? Maybe he would like to return to the '60s with the Vietnam War, the hippies and the drug culture that spawned people like Charles Manson? With the '70s came the sexual revolution and an ever-widening drug culture.

Ultramarathons are to running what the Marquis de Sade was to romance. Not sure I support such extremism. When one of the sport's stars, a frantic rabbit by the name of Shannon Farar-Griefer, runs the infamous Badwater, she races on desert roads so hot they cheese-melt her shoes. That's insane, right? I make it a point to make allegiances of madmen and misfits — they're just more entertaining. But this ultramarathoning? I wouldn't recommend it to my worst enemies, many of whom happen to be lizards.

Michael Shannon has basically rewritten the book on how to portray dark, volatile men in film with his unerring way of channeling rage and repression. It was never more chilling, or more fully realized, than his turn as a family man both paralyzed and driven by his apocalyptic fears in 2011's "Take Shelter. " But even Shannon has his work cut out for him in the new crime drama "The Iceman. " Based on the true story of convicted killer Richard Kuklinski, who was arrested in 1986 and later claimed to have carried out 100 hits for the mob over a 20-year span, it seemed to be right in Shannon's wheelhouse.
