Christo has long been a familiar figure on the international art circuit, but later this year, his name, his face and his spectacular ambition will become even better known in Southern California. Come October, the Bulgarian-born artist will be staging a monumental project: the planting of thousands of huge, brightly colored umbrellas on an inland valley north of Los Angeles, and on another north of Tokyo.

Techno team The core of LaMarcus Aldridge, Damian Lillard and Nicolas Batum is approaching Big Three status. Newcomers Mo Williams, Thomas Robinson and Dorell Wright have added quality depth that was missing last season. Shooting guard Wesley Matthews has made an insane 50.5% of his three-pointers. There's also the iPads. The what? That's right, one of the reasons the Portland Trail Blazers (13-3) bring the second-best record in the Western Conference into Staples Center on Sunday against the Lakers is their use of hand-held devices often associated with playing video games and surfing the Internet.

Will the trend continue: It might be a good omen if College of the Canyons wins this week's Stengel tournament. The tournament's two previous winners, Canyons in 1986 and Cerritos in 1985, have won the state community college championship. Canyons was runner-up in '85. The Cougars (1-1) will meet Southwestern College at 2:30 this afternoon in the first round of the tournament at Rancho Santiago College in Santa Ana.

The latest case of alleged political corruption in San Diego headed to a federal jury Wednesday after the lead prosecutor and defense attorney disagreed sharply about whether the case was even worthy of action by the United States attorney's office. The Duke Cunningham case it is not. The Cunningham case involved bribes of $2.4 million, tax evasion of $1 million, hundreds of millions of dollars in defense contracts and a prison sentence of eight years and four months for a veteran congressman.

Victoria Montemayor was a 17-year-old manager trainee in 1984 when police barred her from entering her job at a McDonald's here where a crazed gunman was killing her co-workers and their customers. Brushing tears from her cheeks, Montemayor, now 24, moved her camera Thursday through a crowd of 200 people outside Southwestern College for the dedication of a long-awaited monument to the slain. A student journalist at Southwestern College, she was assigned to cover the event.

Kelly San Martin, a 14-year-old honors student from Bonita, completed five weeks of mathematics classes at Southwestern College on Thursday, but she doesn't have a single test score or homework paper to show for it. She took two classes a day, five days a week, and didn't crack a book the whole time. "For the first couple of weeks I was afraid to tell my dad what we were doing," Kelly said. "He kept saying, 'So when are you going to get books?'

Two immensely powerful installations are now on view at the Southwestern College Art Gallery (900 Otay Lakes Road) under the collective title, "Blood is Thicker." To enter each environment is to step into a living memory, a realm ripe with tenderness, pain, suffering and inspiration. Slightly dampened peat moss covers the floor of Johnny Coleman's installation, "City/Country/City: Song for David." The cushioned ground inspires slower movement, hushed actions, heightened senses.

The American musical isn't dead. It's just getting too expensive for most theater companies to tackle. That's what New York playwright Edward Gallardo found when he wrote the libretto for "Fantasma" with composer Marc Allen Trujillo. The musical tells the story of a Puerto Rican who deserts his heritage and everyone he loves--including his son--in pursuit of the American dream.

"Dead Heads Grateful for Big Treat--Nostalgia Rides High at the Band's Southwestern Gig" by Janny Scott (Sept. 16), was a super story on the Grateful Dead's Sunday concert at Southwestern College. When their music invaded my office, I took a break from grading papers to view the scene from a lawn outside the stadium where there was dancing, hugging, skateboarding and thoughtful listening. The sun's rays and the music had a relaxing effect on everyone. I'm glad Janny described the activity within the stadium because black plastic around the fence obscured it. I even considered buying a $15 ticket, but the concert was sold out. Anyway, sound travels, and on the lawn I enjoyed all the vibes, plus the experience warmed my Scot heart.

Orange Coast College's Brett Recktenwald returned a kickoff 99 yards, scored on an 85-yard punt return and made a key interception on his own three-yard line. But the Pirates couldn't overcome the passing of Brad Platt, as Southwestern College defeated Orange Coast 34-27 in a Mission Conference game Saturday. Platt was 18 of 33 for 253 yards, including touchdown passes of 49 and 23 yards to wide receiver Robert Claiborne. Southwestern is 5-1 in conference and 6-1 overall.

Swen Nater, the former UCLA and San Diego Clippers center, has ventured into the music business, in part to help raise money for Christian Heritage College, where he is athletic director and men's basketball coach. "He sings in church or at various banquets," said Marlene Nater, his wife, "and people kept asking him when he was going to make a tape." They will not have to ask anymore.
