After Santiago Soto rode Felliniana, a 39-1 shot who was the longest price on the board, to a second-place finish in the first division of Saturday's Osunitas Handicap, he said: "I'm a turf jockey, I think, like Fernando Toro." In the second division of the Osunitas, which was run before 24,133 fans on Del Mar's first Saturday of the season, Soto went out and proved his claim.

 Former Santa Ana Mater Dei basketball player Mario Soto, who transferred to Saddleback Valley Christian, is now seeking a hardship waiver of CIF transfer rules in an attempt to gain immediate eligibility. He did not have a valid change of residency, so gaining a hardship waiver is his last resort to being able to play in his senior season.  It is now under consideration, according to the CIF.

When Hector Soto answered the phone at Mama Fina's Dominican restaurant early Thursday, he did so with a question. "Did he sign?" Soto asked in Spanish. There was no need to ask who "he" was. Albert Pujols was coming to Southern California with a fresh $254 million to spend. And for Soto that was good news — not only for the Angels but for his Bellflower business as well. "It's great that they gave that money to a Dominican," Soto said. "He'll come to the restaurant.

Controversy has erupted over the transfer of Santa Ana Mater Dei senior forward Mario Soto to Saddleback Valley Christian. He has sought immediate eligibility from the Southern Section via a change of residency, but Mater Dei has yet to sign off on the transfer, Southern Section spokesman Thom Simmons said. Soto has hired an attorney, John Manly, who is alleging that Soto was subjected to bullying at the school for three years. Manly, a Mater Dei grad who has sued his alma mater more than a dozen times since 1997, said he wrote a letter to the Diocese of Orange last week asking "the diocese to take action.

In the Labor Day issue of Calendar, Norman Frisch shared his recollections of Groucho Marx's radio and then TV show "You Bet Your Life" ("Groucho a Memorable Boss? Bet Your Life on It"). It has been nearly 50 years but I can still recall Groucho's on-the-air ad-libs. I had to follow them closely since I was the newest and youngest staffer in Chrysler's De Soto Division Advertising Department. One of my toughest jobs was to write back to listeners who had been offended by some off-color nuance they perceived in a Groucho one-liner zinger.

After a decade in the Legislature, Assemblywoman Nell Soto (D-Pomona) said she would not run for reelection. Under term limits, Soto, 81, could serve, if reelected, until 2012. She will retire when her current term ends in December, she said. She has missed every Assembly session this year because of illness. Democratic candidates who have filed to run for her Inland Empire seat in the June primary election include Maurice E. Ayala of Chino, Norma J. Torres of Pomona and Kenneth M. White of Ontario.

I'm eager to buy my daughter the children's books by Mexican American poet Gary Soto ("If Fresno Could Write," by Lisa Broadwater, June 9). But I was surprised to learn that he chooses not to write about any aspects of his 21-year marriage to a wife of Japanese descent because it doesn't interest him. I'm Mexican American and married to a Japanese man. It's a privilege to experience intimately the interesting aspects of Japanese culture, and I'm...

Speaking as one who strongly opposes rewarding illegal immigration, I would like to respond to Msgr. Jaime Soto's July 20 column, "Supervisors Should Value Immigrants." Human nature requires that we all be motivated in order to act. The overwhelming explosion of illegal immigration into the United States is absolute evidence that there are rewards awaiting here. Remove these rewards, you remove the incentive. There will be no motivation and there will be no cause for action. Yes, it is that simple.

Re "Soto Urges Anaheim to Restore the Trust of Latino Residents," March 21: As a disillusioned and nonpracticing Catholic, I am livid that the church once again is sticking its nose into affairs of the state and federal governments. Rather than trying to change the laws of our country, perhaps Bishop [Jaime] Soto should encourage others to obey the laws of our country. Americans are sick and tired of importing more people who cause the American taxpayer to foot the bills for education and medical treatment.

Re: "Amid Middle East Strife, a New Focus on Economies," James Flanigan, March 17: I hope you can give some "ink" to the solution proposed by Hernando de Soto, president of the Institute for Liberty and Democracy in Lima, Peru. In essence, his concept is to ultimately eliminate the need for foreign aid on the part of the U.S. There is so much potential for internal growth and capital creation in these areas. However, the legal processes in place make it virtually impossible for ordinary people in these countries to create and expand capital.

 Santa Ana Mater Dei appears on the verge of losing a second talented varsity basketball player, with 6-foot-5 Mario Soto transferring. Soto is no longer listed on Mater Dei's roster on MaxPreps. He has been an important contributor for the Monarchs, though he was injured last season. He interviewed on Friday at Saddleback Valley Christian, but nothing has been finalized. Earlier, the Monarchs lost center Jayce Johnson to JSerra.   Eric.sondheimer@latimes.com

We know too much about Mexico's drug war and not enough. We hear about it constantly, about the 60,000 murders and the slaughter of innocents, but getting a sense of what that means on the ground - and how pervasive its cultural influence is - is harder to come by. The potent documentary "Narco Cultura" is an excellent place to start. This dispassionate but devastating film looks at the drug wars from two very different but chillingly complementary perspectives. As directed and shot by Shaul Schwarz, an accomplished photojournalist who spent two years in this world as a still photographer before starting to film, "Narco Cultura" benefits from the access Schwarz earned through his time on the ground.

This post has been updated below. Service on the Metro Gold Line between Union Station and the Soto Street Station was delayed during the rush-hour commute Wednesday because of a power outage, transit officials said. Trains were sharing a single line of track, causing delays up to 15 minutes, Metro said. Earlier, service between the stations was entirely shut down for about an hour. Buses were transporting passengers from Patsaouras Plaza at Union Station to the Soto Station, Metro said on its Twitter account.

ARLINGTON, Texas - Jered Weaver allowed one run and five hits in seven splendid innings, "the best I've ever thrown the ball in Texas," he said, and J.B. Shuck, who got the silent treatment after hitting his first big league home run, responded by walking the length of the dugout and hilariously high-fiving invisible teammates. It was all fun and games for the Angels at the Ballpark in Arlington Monday night . . . until someone got hurt. Closer Ernesto Frieri failed to protect a one-run lead in the ninth inning, giving up a leadoff home run to A.J. Pierzynski and a two-out, walk-off homer to Geovany Soto in a crushing 4-3 loss to the Texas Rangers that extended the Angels' losing streak to four and buried them deeper in the American League West standings, 14 games behind first-place Oakland.

They had to bury Vicki Soto on Wednesday and took care in doing so. Soto -- her full name was Victoria Leigh Soto -- lived in Stratford, Conn., about a 40-minute drive from Sandy Hook Elementary School, where she taught first grade. She liked the Yankees, she liked books. She had a big black Labrador retriever named Roxie. Soto, 27, had blue eyes and a big smile. She died Friday morning trying to protect her students from Adam Lanza, 20, who had shot his way into her school and found her in her classroom.

At least the Dodgers didn't have to worry about who would be their closer Wednesday. On a day when incumbent closer Jonathan Broxton and hot-hitting Andre Ethier joined third baseman Casey Blake on the sidelines because of elbow problems, the Dodgers used a patchwork lineup that included only one player, Matt Kemp, batting over .250. That proved no match for Chicago Cubs starter Carlos Zambrano (4-1), who held the Dodgers to one run through eight innings, and home runs by a trio of Cubs powered Chicago to a 5-1 win in an afternoon game at Dodger Stadium.

The lost interest in Saturday's fight card resulting from a canceled main event did not apply to Humberto Soto and Urbano Antillon, who staged a stirring world lightweight title bout at the Honda Center. Soto, relying on his ability to strike the challenger with barrages, made his third successful title defense by outlasting Maywood's Antillon in a close unanimous decision. Soto (54-7-2) weathered the tough, charging Antillon (28-2) even as the champion's legs weakened in the final rounds, claiming victory by scores of 114-113 twice (Alejandro Rochin and Alan Krebs)
