Johnny Cash's life in the 1960s is mostly remembered as a time of glorious achievement - from the landmark prison albums at Folsom and San Quentin to the launch of the ABC-TV series featuring such guests as Bob Dylan and the Doors that led to his becoming a giant figure in popular culture, a symbol to millions, no less, of the best of American social values. But Cash also experienced excruciatingly dark times in the decade, fueled by drugs and guilt over the breakup of his marriage.

RICHMOND - For sheer memorability, the Toyota Owners 400 earned its place on the list of unforgettable Sprint Cup Series races at Richmond International Raceway. Crazy start. Twenty lead changes. Multiple car fires. Great beat-and-bang finish. The 400-lap, 300-mile race never failed to offer the kind of Saturday night short-track atmosphere so many fans crave, and even threw in a good fistfight afterward. Joey Logano emerged victorious in a multi-car battle for the checkered flag over the final laps, with Jeff Gordon second, Kyle Busch third, Brad Keselowski fourth and Matt Kenseth fifth.

Halloween is my favorite time of year. And I love to be scared. Over the years, I've been through my fair share of theme park mazes, independent haunted attractions and backyard spookfests. I even dress up every Halloween as a chainsaw-wielding maniac in a hockey mask and scare the neighborhood kids at the haunted house on our block. So I like to think I've seen it all - from the mundane to the extreme. But I've never experienced anything like McKamey Manor . > Photos: Inside the McKamey Manor backyard haunt in San Diego On Friday night I went through the backyard haunt tucked behind the three-bedroom, brick-and-stucco home of Russ and Carol McKamey in an otherwise ordinary San Diego subdivision near Poway.

The process was routine. L.A. County Sheriff's homicide investigator Kevin Lloyd was flipping through snapshots of tattooed gang members. Then one caught his attention. Inked on the pudgy chest of a young Pico Rivera gangster who had been picked up and released on a minor offense was the scene of a 2004 liquor store slaying that had stumped Lloyd for more than four years. Each key detail was right there: the Christmas lights that lined the roof of the liquor store where 23-year-old John Juarez was gunned down, the direction his body fell, the bowed street lamp across the way and the street sign — all under the chilling banner of RIVERA KILLS, a reference to the gang Rivera-13.

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.

Olympic sprint champion Florence Griffith Joyner died after suffering an epileptic seizure, according to autopsy results released Thursday, and her family and friends say they hope the findings will put to rest rumors that drug use contributed to her death. Griffith Joyner died last month in her sleep at age 38. Her husband, Al Joyner, bitterly criticized those who suggested that she took performance-enhancing drugs.

"E ntertainment Tonight" will air its 2,000th show on Friday. Although thumped by critics since it debuted on Sept. 14, 1981, the syndicated program has survived. Entertainment reporters are now as common on TV as weather reporters, in part because of "ET," which has remained television's leading news show devoted solely to the entertainment industry. Last September, at the start of its eighth season, "ET" introduced a new format, with glitzier graphics, strobe-light pacing and two new features--its opening Inside Story and the ET Insider, a gossip-column-style commentary by co-star John Tesh.

What do guys do to lose weight? Our "two guys" have been chronicling their efforts since January. At the moment, Tony is eating cookies, and Jimmy’s doing Nutrisystem. And film director Kevin Smith is doing … um ....not sure. Smith chatted earlier this week with Joy Behar on her TV show (see video above) and talked about his weight rather than his controversial movie "Red State. " There's less of him, 65 pounds less, but he never reveals how he did it -- smart and sensible or fast and faddish?

NEW YORK--Lena Dunham found her show "Girls" under criticism earlier this year for an absence of minority characters. The controversy only mushroomed after, in an apparent bid to make light of the issue, "Girls" writer Lesley Arfin tweeted sarcastically that she didn't think "Precious" offered a representation of her either. At an event Sunday hosted by the New Yorker and its TV critic Emily Nussbaum, Dunham offered some context on the incident. After saying that Arfin had actually no longer worked on the show at the time she sent the tweet, Dunham elaborated on what was happening on the "Girls" set during the controversy.

NEW YORK - John Oliver will have the crab cakes - but that's all, thanks. In a private dining room at HBO's plush headquarters overlooking Bryant Park in midtown Manhattan, a waitress in a crisp black uniform asks the 37-year-old comedian if he'd like anything else - perhaps some soup or salad? He declines with a polite insistence that suggests he's not quite used to all the luxurious trappings. Then, as soon as the waitress leaves the room, he launches into a riff about possibly sinister deeds going on behind the scenes at HBO. "I don't know what happens here," he says, "This is, like, unsettlingly nice.

One, two, three. One, two, three. One, two, three. Down batters went as Clayton Kershaw pitched for the Class-A Rancho Cucamonga Quakes on Friday night as part of his effort to return from a back injury that put him on the disabled list for the first time in his career. The Dodgers pitcher said after his appearance that he "felt good, felt healthy" and that he was "ready to go. " His only hiccup came in the fifth inning - the final one he pitched - when he gave up a solo home run to the first batter he faced, Carlos Perdomo of the Lancaster Jethawks.

The Libertines have reunited, and for the most Pete Doherty-ish reason possible. The acclaimed but troubled English rock band will perform in London's Hyde Park on July 5. The group had previously reunited for a festival run in 2010 but had not released a new album in over a decade. Before the formal announcement, frontman Doherty told the Israeli paper Ynet  ( via Pitchfork ) that the group had accepted an offer to play the show. Spiritualized and the Pogues will open.

Migraines can be a sign of celiac disease, researchers say. Celiac patients had a greater incidence of headaches - and severe headaches, at that - than a control group in a study published last year by researchers at Columbia University in New York City. Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder in which gluten, the protein found in wheat, barley and rye, causes illness. People are often diagnosed after complaining of stomach and digestive problems, but scientists believe migraines too may be a symptom.

Terry Bradshaw has a loyal following in Pittsburgh. I don't know. Something about winning four Super Bowls with some team called the Steelers. So who better than the blond bomber to kick off a summer concert series June 14 that also features Motown legend Smokey Robinson and old-school favorites the Oak Ridge Boys and 38 Special at the Meadows Casino in Washington, Pa., about 30 minutes outside of the Steel City? Sounds great. He can just stand there and tell football anecdotes while laying on that down-home charm that has made him a favorite during Fox's football coverage all these years.

A bitter political tug-of-war over who will host a Fourth of July fireworks show at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum took another turn Friday when City Councilman Bernard C. Parks withdrew his bid to host the show -- and said he would hold a separate event. Parks said he was pulling out because Councilman Curren Price had received a copy of his "blueprint" for the proposed event, which he argued should have remained confidential. He said he would hold his Independence Day fireworks event elsewhere, without indicating a location.
