It's going to take a lucrative payment to nominate Obviously for the $2 million Breeders' Cup Mile next month at Santa Anita, but trainer Mike Mitchell and co-owners Anthony Fanticola and Joe Scardino are convinced the 4-year-old gelding has earned a shot based on his freakish-like performances in his last two races. Last month, Obviously set a course record for a mile on the turf at Del Mar in 1:32.10. On Saturday at Santa Anita, Obviously won the $150,000 Arroyo Seco Mile by a half-length over Trailblazer in 1:31.95, just six-hundreths of a second off the course record of 1:31.89.

It was three years ago, in the 2010 Pac-5 Division semifinals, that Alemany gave unbeaten Servite perhaps its toughest game of the season. Servite prevailed, 28-21 , despite 153 yards rushing and 273 passing by Alemany quarterback Vernon Adams. Now the two teams are set to meet again in Friday's Pac-5 Division quarterfinals at Cerritos College. Both teams have quarterbacks capable of doing just what Adams did _ run and pass. Alemany has Alif Grayes. Servite has Travis Waller, who Alemany Coach Dean Herrington said, "He's RG3," referring to Robert Griffin III. The key to the game will be Alemany's defense.

SAN FRANCISCO -- The doors to the Lakers' shoot-around opened, and there was Dwight Howard working on a series of mid-range jumpers. From 14 feet. Sometimes 16. A few from 18 feet. "He can make those," Lakers Coach Mike D'Antoni said Monday morning, sounding hopeful. Improving his outside touch can only help Howard offensively. He has been a diminishing star late in games. He had no fourth-quarter shots in the Lakers' loss Friday to Washington and also none a week ago in their loss to Phoenix.

David Laut traveled the world as an Olympic shot-put medalist, but he never forgot his roots in Oxnard. When his glory days ended, Laut -- who earned a bronze medal at the 1984 Olympics in Los Angeles -- bought a home in south Oxnard, taught in the local public schools and raised a son with his wife, Jane, his high school sweetheart. About midnight Thursday, Laut, 52, stepped outside of his home to confront prowlers and was gunned down, according to law enforcement officials and neighbors.

NEWTOWN, Conn. -- School shooter Adam Lanza killed his mother with "multiple" shots to her head and killed himself with a single shot to his head, according to a coroner's report released Sunday. After killing his mother in the home they shared, Lanza, 20, drove her car to Sandy Hook Elementary School, where he opened fire in two classrooms Friday morning, killing 20 children and six adults. He then turned the gun on himself. The autopsy reports were released by Connecticut Chief Medical Examiner Dr. H. Wayne Carver II, who said earlier that all the children had been shot multiple times.
