The all-women's Colorado Silver Bullets, saying the competition in the Northern League is too tough, called off their scheduled baseball games with the minor league. "At this time, I feel that we cannot compete at their level," Silver Bullet Manager Phil Niekro said Thursday. The Silver Bullets played an all-star Northern League team last weekend in Fort Mill, S.C., and lost, 19-0.

Vice President Joe Biden culminated a week of meetings on gun policy Friday, telling representatives of the video game industry that “there's no silver bullet” when it comes to confronting gun violence. “We know this is a complex problem,” he said, emphasizing the diversity of groups he has consulted since the initiative began in late December, including law enforcement, medical groups, hunters and gun owners and the entertainment industry. That range, he said, proved that the video game industry has not been not been singled out. “I come to this meeting with no judgment.

In "Blade," a bulked-up Wesley Snipes plays a superhero who's half human, half vampire. He spends his spare time prowling for vampires, dispatching them with an array of silver and garlic-treated weapons. Rated R. * "Blade" is one of those brainless action flicks that tends to leave most adults numb. In other words, a movie that often appeals to kids.

  President Obama launched a fiery defense of his energy policy Thursday amid growing pressure to stem rising gasoline prices, perhaps by releasing oil from the nation's emergency petroleum reserve. Obama avoided mentioning the Strategic Petroleum Reserve option, but acknowledged the pain Americans feel at the pump and mocked Republicans for "acting like 'We've got a magic wand and we will give you cheap gas forever.' " "We've seen it all before; we know better. You know better," he told a crowd at Prince George's Community College in Maryland.

"My brother, Capt. Dan Reid, was one of the finest men that ever lived," the "Lone Ranger" says in the distinctive voice known to viewers of early television. "We were Texas Rangers in the same company." Thus begins Clayton Moore's dramatic first-person narration of the legend of the Lone Ranger, the role he played in 169 TV episodes over six years.

Kim Braatz-Voisard held her temper in check. Even after she was hit by a pitch, the Colorado Silver Bullet outfielder stayed calm. Then the pitcher laughed at her, and she lost it--prompting an all-out brawl. "If they were playing with guys, the same thing would have happened," teammate Tamara Ivie said. "We just didn't want to say, 'Well, we're girls . . . .' " It was inevitable.

K.C. Clark was working at a grocery store in Fullerton and Missy Coombes was teaching at Montclair High when they heard about the Colorado Silver Bullets. Both of them jumped at the chance to try out for the first women's professional baseball team to play against men. Both made the team, and now, halfway through the Silver Bullets' first 50-game season, they're calling this experience one of the best of their lives.

It is a peaceful Mother's Day in Ft. Mill, South Carolina--warm, sunlit, with no hint of dread. A good day to play two, as Ernie Banks used to say. Inside Knights Castle, a minor league stadium, the air is filled with the lulling sounds of baseball. The crack of a bat against a ball. The soft crunch of spikes digging into red clay. The slap of a fist into leather. The Colorado Silver Bullets, preparing for their first formal game, are being watched over lovingly by family members and supporters.

Even Joe Swanberg has to stop to count the number of Joe Swanberg movies out there right now. Just this year he premiered "Uncle Kent" at Sundance and unveiled "Silver Bullets" and "Art History" at the Berlin International Film Festival. The 30-year-old filmmaker also released "Autoerotic" on video-on-demand with limited theatrical play dates. He has been shooting throughout 2011 as well and is on course to soon finish his 15th film (10 of those he made in just the last two years). The AFI Fest 2011, which starts Thursday, will spotlight Swanberg, hosting the world premiere of his newest film, "The Zone," alongside screenings of "Art History" and "Silver Bullets.

At a time when most people are avoiding metals such as lead and mercury, there's a full-out rush among the health-conscious for silver, a metal that is showing up in elixirs and sprays, soaps and toothpastes. Considered potentially toxic by the Environmental Protection Agency and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, silver enjoys a lustrous reputation in alternative health circles.

Six years ago on this date, I wrote that "California needs an electric train set for Christmas." Santa still hasn't come through. I had in mind a big train set that's 700 miles long with locomotives barreling at 200 mph. A bullet train. To be honest, I'm no longer as excited about it as I once was, anyway. Turns out, as a Sacramentan, I wouldn't be allowed to use the train for a very long time. Neither would people in San Diego, Riverside, San Bernardino, Modesto or Stockton.

President Bush's plan to slow the mortgage meltdown could help prevent hundreds of thousands of people from losing their homes, but many others would get no relief -- and the plan's effect on the broader economy remained a topic of sharp debate. Under the plan outlined Thursday, lenders would be given broad latitude to fix troubled loans, notably those with low introductory teaser rates that will reset to higher payments between Jan. 1, 2008, and July 31, 2010.

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- It was in a sticky heat on Monday that heralded freshman quarterback Jimmy Clausen walked across campus toward his first fall football practice at Notre Dame. He wore sandals and a red T-shirt, rolled up to mid-chest. He carried one football shoe in each hand. It marked a beginning, for sure, but of what? More than being the answer for Irish football right now, Clausen is just one of many questions.

Last July it was Lonesome George without believers versus Dukakis who had enthusiastic friends at every level of his party. Today, it's Bush looking almost like a winner . . . with GOP friends he's never known before. And Dukakis seems the Lone Ranger. This Lone Ranger will need three things to win: 1. Silver bullets--simple issues that maim whenever they hit. Dukakis has a six-shooter full: Iran-Contra, Noriega, sleaze, consultants, the Quayle choice. 2. A horse to ride--a way Dukakis can stay close enough to keep his silver bullets from seeming desperate.

It's Del Harris Night tonight in Richmond, Ind., his former home in more ways than one. The town near the Ohio border is where he started a basketball coaching career, at Earlham College in the 1960s and '70s, that would eventually lead him to the Lakers. And Harris, who was a semi-pro pitcher until his arm went dead when he was 32, used to work from the same Don McBride Stadium where the ceremonies will take place. So the salute is a natural.

Funny how the images and phrases of long ago can thrive so vividly in aging memories that stumble now over new ATM passwords. A fiery horse with the speed of light.... A faithful Indian companion.... Return with us now to those thrilling days of yesteryear, the Lone Ranger rides again. Ninety years ago this week, Jack Carlton Moore (later Clayton Moore) was born in Chicago and dreamed of becoming a trapeze artist.
