The current celebration of the 300th anniversary of Handel's birth continues to bring us his neglected masterpieces. A case in point is the oratorio "Solomon," to be performed by the Irvine Symphony Orchestra and the UC Irvine Concert and Alumni Choirs under the direction of Joseph Huszti Saturday at 8 p.m. at the South Coast Community Church in Irvine. Written seven years after "Messiah," "Solomon" falls between the also rarely heard "Joshua" and "Susanna."

The lines in Bart Exposito's new paintings at Thomas Solomon Gallery do things the lines in his old paintings didn't: slip away from the shapes they demarcate to float in spaces that are more atmospheric than anything the artist has painted since he began exhibiting 15 years ago. This transformation may have something to do with Exposito's recent move from Los Angeles to Santa Fe and his commute to Albuquerque, where he teaches. Like the landscape he drives through, most of his new works are horizontal.

The last time the Rev. Gordon Solomon spoke from the pulpit at Christ's Community Church in Inglewood, he asked the congregation to pray for him and his family as he faced troubling times. Members had assumed last month that the 50-year-old pastor had an illness in the family. But on Wednesday, they discovered Solomon was battling allegations that he had sexually abused a teenage congregant. "I didn't think it was something like this," said Walter Woodard, 57, a musician for the church.

Weight loss expert and syndicated columnist Dr. Neil Solomon admitted Wednesday that he enticed patients into having sex in his office and elsewhere. "I admit that for at least 20 years, I have used my position as a physician to instigate a wide range of sexual relations with at least eight women patients," the 61-year-old said in a letter to the state Board of Physician Quality Assurance. "This conduct included acts of sexual intercourse, as well as other explicit sex acts," Solomon wrote.

Prosecutors have decided not to file charges of soliciting a lewd act in public against Santee City Councilman Gerry Solomon, who was snared in an anti-prostitution sweep last month by an undercover La Mesa policewoman. Lou Boyle, chief of the district attorney's East County division, said he was dropping the case because the "word game" that went on between Solomon and the police decoy just before his arrest was not explicit enough to convict the councilman.

Re "Multiculturalism Gets Whacked By Popular Culture," Voices, July 28: When James Solomon equates Fox Sports promos featuring foreign "sports" like blindfolded clubbing, dirt diving and competitive face slapping with mean-spirited xenophobic behavior, he overlooks a simple fact of life. Humans are still tribal. We laugh at exotic behavior. It will be forever thus until everyone speaks Esperanto, enjoys eating gusanos with guacamole and appreciates Bill Maher. At this very moment, millions of mean-spirited folks are gathered around their satellite TVs in Kabul, Constantinople and Chichicastenango, guffawing derisively at professional log tossing, tractor pulling, ice hockey brawls, XFL reruns, the "X Games," "American Gladiators," arena football or two World Wrestling Federation guys or gals banging each other over the head with folding chairs.

I was personally offended by Solomon's article. I am an executive producer and writer of children's programs. Over the last 10 years I have written more than 340 animated teleplays for dozens of Saturday morning series, including most of the episodes of "Jim Henson's Muppet Babies," for which I won two Emmy Awards and the Humanitas Prize. I was not offended because Solomon panned any of my shows. I was offended because The Times allowed someone to review the new Saturday morning lineup who obviously has nothing positive to say about anything.

Despite his avowed wish to take the money and "give it to the Little Sisters of the Poor," U.S. District Judge Jim Carrigan ruled in Denver that art dealer Jacques Michel and antique trader Charles Angelucci must split the profits realized when a William Merritt Chase oil, purchased for $500, was resold for $410,000.

This pairing has the makings of a sitcom, or possibly a buddy movie. California seniors Justin Cobbs and Richard Solomon have been together since their salad days at Torrance Bishop Montgomery High. "It's been kind of like a big brother, little brother relationship," said Bishop Montgomery Coach Doug Mitchell. "They are totally different people. " Cobbs, one of the best point guards in the Pac-12 Conference, has that life-is-serious view. Solomon, a handful of a 6-foot-10 power forward, does not. "I thought Richard was just goofy when I met him," Mitchell said.

SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. - In the film "12 Years a Slave," free black man Solomon Northup dreams of one thing during his long captivity in the antebellum South: returning to his family and home in Saratoga Springs. In the film, as Northup, played by Chiwetel Ejiofor, undergoes grueling labor and horrific punishment on a series of Southern plantations, Saratoga Springs becomes a promised land, its name uttered with a sense of longing and hope. Yet mention Northup's name to many locals in modern-day Saratoga Springs or ask about the memoir or movie that tells his story and they'll raise an eyebrow, largely unaware of the man and his legacy.

A nearly universal desire among writers is to make themselves conspicuous in their work. It's completely understandable. When a script that you've spent months - if not years - writing has your name on the title page, who wouldn't want the material inside to crackle with style; full of snappy rejoinders that audiences gleefully repeat as they exit the theater. Moments that scream: "I wrote that. " Having worked the whole of my professional life toward achieving such, it's kind of ironic that in adapting Solomon Northup's "Twelve Years a Slave" I would end up taking the exact opposite approach.

Since its debut at the Telluride and Toronto film festivals earlier this fall, the historical drama "12 Years a Slave" has garnered considerable critical acclaim, including nearly unanimous positive reviews and seven Spirit Award nominations , the most of any film this year. While the film's story - based on the autobiography by Solomon Northup, a free black man  from the North who was kidnapped and sold into slavery in the antebellum South - is remarkable, perhaps even more astonishing is that the story is so little known.

When a production benefits the Bulgarian economy as much as "Getaway" apparently did, it might seem mean-spirited to knock it. And when its wall-to-wall car stunts are the real, metal-on-metal deal, shot in the streets of the capital city, that's worth noting. But unless you're a demolition-derby fetishist or a connoisseur of vehicular mayhem, none of that will buy you a thrill in this video game posing as a movie, a preposterously plotted kidnapping story starring a high-performance Mustang.

With 20 minutes to go before making their high-stakes start-up pitches, the wannabe entrepreneurs were understandably nervous. In one corner of the room, Marc Pakravan and Robert Davis, who came up with the idea for an online shopping site for men's ties, were struggling to put on their own neckties. A few feet away, Jessica Chan-Ugalde looked exasperated as she chastised her partner for not knowing what a hashtag was. Meanwhile Neil Serebryany, whose start-up idea Transformo offers language translation through a headset device, was utterly unfazed as he surveyed the last-minute frenzy.

Re "Taking the Borchard Road Quandary to a New Level," Ventura County Perspective, March 12. This article made a quasi-humorous attempt to describe how Solomon, in his wisdom, might have resolved the conflict over the Borchard Road extension in Thousand Oaks. The writer guessed that Solomon would have decided that one half of Borchard Road [should] be built at the city standard of a 5% maximum slope and that the opposite side [should] be built to the extremely dangerous 12% slope pushed by the developers and their attorneys.

Phil Solomon is categorized as an experimental filmmaker, a label both redundant (experimentation being implicit to every art) and inadequate. Solomon is a cinematic painter, a cultural anthropologist, an archaeologist of personal and collective memory and a kinetic poet. Several L.A. institutions have showcased Solomon this month with one-night screenings of his widely exhibited prize-winning films. "Phil Solomon: Before and After the Falls," a complementary exhibition at Young Projects, offers a sustained opportunity to experience a range of new and older work.
