Stop Rehema Stephens and you stop the UCLA women's basketball team. That's what some benighted opponents try to do. There's only one thing wrong with that notion: It doesn't work. Her mother tried to stop her when she was an All-American at Oakland Technical High. She didn't object to her daughter's high school games, only to all the pick-up games she played in her free time against men and boys at the neighborhood playground. "I enjoy everything about basketball," she said.

On Tuesday, Stephen Colbert stopped by "Late Show" to say hello to David Letterman, whom he will be replacing next year. On Wednesday, Colbert returned to "The Daily Show" to tell Jon Stewart how he had "won television. " Colbert got his start as a correspondent on "The Daily Show" from 1997 until 2005 when he left to host his own show, "The Colbert Report. " But on Wednesday, Colbert had to break the news to Stewart that he was ending his show, which airs immediately after "The Daily Show," to go to CBS. Stewart already knew this, but it didn't stop Colbert from breaking the news to him again.

OAKLAND -- At some point, Clippers Coach Doc Rivers told his players repeatedly this season, they were going to have to win a playoff game on the road. That time came Thursday night for the Clippers in Game 3 of the Western Conference first-round playoff series against the Golden State Warriors at Oracle Arena. The Clippers made that stand behind another monster game from Blake Griffin, DeAndre Jordan's strong all-round effort and a tremendous three-point defensive performance that pushed them to a thrilling 98-96 victory over the Warriors.

In a letter found at his suicide scene, the son of actress Mercedes McCambridge exonerated her of any wrongdoing in his investment thefts from a Little Rock brokerage. "Guilty: John Markle traded your account on an undisclosed discretionary basis. I added funds to your account, I added losses to the Stephens account," said John Markle in a letter to his mother about his trading practices at Stephens Inc. of Little Rock. "Innocent: You are clearly innocent of any wrongdoing in this matter.

Stephens misses one very important factor in his analysis: the presentation of written material. It is ironic because the layout of his article ignores the prospective reader entirely. It includes a variety of line lengths, which makes it exceedingly difficult to read. The use of garish or gaudy graphics and type for the title lend nothing to Stephens' serious and thoughtful effort. GARRY ROSENBERG PUBLISHER, SAN DIEGO JEWISH TIMES

Peter Thomas Stephens was 3 and America had just entered World War II when his father, a naval officer, last held him. "I had scarlet fever," remembered Stephens, 69. "He was at the door and I was in his arms." His father, Lt. Millener W. Thomas, left to serve on the U.S. submarine Grunion. Months later, it vanished in the Pacific. For the next six decades, the fate of Thomas, who was the Grunion's executive officer, and 69 other crewmen was a mystery. Then, in late 2006, Stephens got a letter from a stranger.

Re "Animal-Rights Group Targets O.C. Vet Who Is an Avid Hunter," Aug. 23: How can veterinarian Jack L. Stephens, founder and head of one of the larger pet insurance companies, proclaim his love for animals when he avidly hunts animals on safari for sport and hangs their heads on his wall? David Reisman, speaking on Stephens' behalf, has a simple answer: What Stephens does in his free time is no one else's business. I guess that means that Martha Stewart's free-time investments are nobody's business but her own, Bill Clinton's free-time dalliances are nobody's business but his own, and Dick Cheney's free-time interest in the oil industry is nobody's business but his own. And if elected, Larry Flynt's free-time publication of pornography would be nobody's business but his own, and ... well, you get the point.

On June 17 you ran a first-person article by R. David Stephens headlined "The Reality Behind the Image of Beverly Hills High." Being a student at Beverly, I must say that his description was unfair. He claimed that the paint is peeling, concrete is cracked, and tiles are falling from the ceilings. Give me a break! Was he looking at the same school that I have been in for the past year? Beverly is a great school, and in my opinion, is in fabulous condition. Stephens failed to mention our beautifully kept tennis courts, our several theaters, the lavish artwork that is displayed all over campus, the greenery throughout the school, our planetarium, library or the many vending machines.

Stephen Gaghan, the Oscar writing screenwriter, and his wife, fashion designer Minnie Mortimer, have put their Brentwood home up for sale at $4.995 million. Set behind gates and stone columns, the shingle-clad house looks like it could be set in Nantucket. The 5,267 square feet of living space features wood-beam ceilings, a painted wood-paneled den/library, a corner sunroom,  a media room, five bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms. There's a balcony off the master suite. A covered brick patio extends the length of the back of the house and connects to the balcony area above by an exterior stairwell.

Chris Paul stood before the assembled media Wednesday in his Clippers practice gear, a black brace loosely hanging from his lower right leg. After answering several questions about his right hamstring injury and how the Clippers were ready to play the Golden State Warriors in Game 3 of the playoffs Thursday in Oakland, Paul eased his way to a training table and sat. Paul didn't practice for the second straight day. In fact, Clippers Coach Doc...

The passing of the "Late Show" torch has officially begun. On Tuesday, Stephen Colbert paid his first visit to the Ed Sullivan Theater following the news that he will be taking over for David Letterman next year.  To answer your first question: No, Colbert was not in character, as evidenced by the stylish black glasses he wore, rather than the conservative wire-rim frames his blustery character prefers and, of course, by his modest and affable...

Stephen Curry isn't one to snap at referees. Technical fouls aren't his thing. But his shot hadn't been falling, his team was getting crushed by the Clippers and, yeah, he was angry. So he picked up his first technical foul this season after yelling at a non-call, thinking he was fouled by Chris Paul and/or Blake Griffin on a layup in the Clippers' 138-98 dismantling of the Golden State Warriors. Strange game for Curry, an All-Star who pretty much disappeared as the Clippers took a 26-point halftime lead Monday.

The announcements have been made and the pundits have commented. Now it's time for America to witness the first public meeting between Stephen Colbert and David Letterman since the announcement was made that Colbert would be taking over CBS' late-night slot sometime next year. Colbert has appeared on Letterman's show 12 times since the premiere of his Comedy Central show, "The Colbert Report," in 2005. But when he sits down on "Late Show" next Tuesday, he'll be there kicking the tires and seeing how the audience treats him. Face-to-face with the man who will one day take over his job, will Letterman suddenly have second thoughts and renounce his retirement plans?

Papa Bear is angry that his acolyte is leaving, it seems.  On Monday night's edition of "The O'Reilly Factor," a reader wrote in to host Bill O'Reilly commenting on CBS' choice of Stephen Colbert to take over late night from the retiring David Letterman. While Colbert's Comedy Central show, "The Colbert Report," is a deliberate parody of "The O'Reilly Factor" and Colbert refers to O'Reilly as Papa Bear on the air, the Fox News host seemed less than positive about Colbert's prospects in his new role.

Re "Not a conservative pick," April 11 Steven Colbert is a super-smart comic actor. "Steven Colbert" is a character on TV. Neither would currently be famous without the other. Once one is gone, will the other be worth watching on the "Late Show"? Apparently Colbert and CBS are willing to bet his career on that question.

Conan O'Brien is playing nice in late-night land. The comedian and former host of “The Tonight Show” praised the choice of Stephen Colbert to replace David Letterman on the “Late Show” in 2015. Colbert's brand of wit, satire and high jinks, which is expected to be refashioned in his new role, is at least partly a move by CBS to go after a younger audience after a long reign by the cranky but endearing 67-year-old Letterman. “I love Stephen. I think Stephen's great. I'm a huge fan of his as a comic and as a human being,” O'Brien, who hosts “Conan” on TBS, told the Associated Press.
