Pitcher Chad Billingsley was scratched from his scheduled start Sunday against the San Diego Padres due to "elbow pain" in his right throwing arm, Manager Don Mattingly said. Billingsley was scheduled to have an MRI exam Sunday and the Dodgers hope to have the results by Monday. Chris Capuano (9-4) replaced Billingsley in the lineup, and Nathan Eovaldi (1-5) was scheduled to pitch Monday night in the opener of a three-game series with the Philadelphia Phillies at Dodger Stadium.

A season of epic losses continued for the Lakers, who are dropping players almost as fast as they are games. Kent Bazemore was the latest to go down Monday after an MRI exam revealed the shooting guard had suffered a torn tendon in his right foot the previous day against the Clippers. He will miss the season's final five games and undergo surgery to repair the tendon. A timetable for his recovery will be given after the surgery. Bazemore joined Kobe Bryant (fractured knee)

In the Sample Ballot and Voter Information pamphlet, Conrad DeWitte claims that closing the Fullerton Public Library on Sundays resulted in a 40% loss of the service hours available to students and working people. Prior to the Sunday closing, the library was open 63 hours per week. Now, after Sunday closing, it is open 59 hours per week--a reduction of four hours. Students and working people, of course, are not able to use the library during school and working hours, but the late afternoons, evenings and Saturday are still available.

Of all the indignities, this was the lowest of the low: Clippers 142, Lakers 94. It wasn't only the Lakers' worst loss ever to the Clippers. It was their worst ever to anybody. The Clippers appeared to play five-on-three that night, outscoring the Lakers in a particularly wild second quarter, 44-13, with a blaze of alley-oop dunks, three-pointers and satisfied screams exactly a month ago. "They smelled blood in the water and they killed us," Lakers Coach Mike D'Antoni said at the time.

I read with great interest "Customer Is Last in Germany" (April 23), not with an interest in regard to lack of service but, rather, with an eye for what effect the closing statutes had on family life in Germany. Although the Germans cannot chase the mighty mark (or sale) on Sundays, it must have some positive effect on family life. It wasn't too long ago that we too had no malls and most stores were closed on Sundays. I remember Sunday mornings when most of my friends and their families got dressed in their "Sunday best" and went to church in the morning.

Could it be that the honeymoon is over? Will the winning end and the losing start? Will St. Louis fans wake up one morning, roll over, and see Georgia for who she really is? Eewweee! BOB ARRANAGA Pasadena Sundays just aren't the same. While I agree there are quite a few other activities to do in Southern California, unfortunately, I don't surf. Bring back football!

It is a bookworm's dream come true. The San Pedro Regional Branch Library plans to extend its hours and open its doors on Sundays. The increased hours were made possible because more money was allotted in the Los Angeles city budget for eight regional libraries. The extended hours are scheduled to begin in October. The library will be open Sundays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The hours will be extended to 8 p.m. on weekdays and to 6 p.m. on Saturdays. The facility is at 931 S. Gaffey St.

The Croatian parliament has passed a law forcing shops to close on Sundays in a concession to the Roman Catholic Church. The church has campaigned for years for Sundays to be devoted to family or Mass in Croatia, which is almost 90% Roman Catholic. But Croatians have begun spending weekends in shopping malls that have flourished across the country in the last few years and remain open seven days a week. The law takes effect Jan. 1. It allows Sunday shopping over the summer and Christmas holidays.

In an effort to increase parking space for beach traffic on weekends, the City Council has revised the traffic enforcement code on parking in loading zones on Sundays. "The controversy has been how to handle yellow curbs--loading zones. In previous years, our loading zones have been enforced Monday through Saturday," said City Clerk Verna L. Rollinger. "On Sunday you could park in a yellow space, so if you could find yourself a yellow curb on Sunday, you had a parking space all day long."

Circulation continues to drop at U.S. newspapers, though the rate of decline slowed from the previous six-month reporting period. Figures released Monday by the Audit Bureau of Circulations show average weekday circulation fell 8.7% in the six months that ended March 31 compared with the same period a year earlier. Sunday circulation fell 6.5%. That's a slight improvement from April through September of last year, when average weekday circulation dropped 10.6% from a year earlier and Sunday circulation fell 7.5%.

SAN DIEGO - The game between the Dodgers and San Diego Padres on Sunday broke in Major League Baseball's expanded instant replay system. Well, kind of. Neither team challenged a call in the Padres' 3-1 victory. Manager Don Mattingly didn't sound particularly concerned with the implementation of the new technology, even though it wasn't available to the Dodgers until they hosted the Angels on Thursday in the opening game of the Freeway Series. The new system wasn't in effect for the Dodgers' season-opening, two-game series in Australia against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

MINNEAPOLIS - Sunday was a day of rest and no practice for the Clippers, giving Glen Davis time to reflect on his run-in with Coach Doc Rivers and allowing Blake Griffin time to get more treatment for back spasms. The drama-filled moments from Saturday night's game between the Clippers and Houston Rockets also included reserve guard Jamal Crawford suffering from a sore and tight left Achilles' tendon. Davis had gotten into an argument with Rivers during the game Saturday night and was eventually escorted off the bench and into the Clippers' locker room after Rivers told the team's security to remove his backup power forward.

"700 Sundays" began as a sad calculation. Right before my 50th birthday, I found myself thinking about how life has been like an express train whizzing by as I stand on the platform watching the blur, the wind and noise almost knocking me over. I thought of my father and our all too short relationship. He died when I was just 15 years old. He worked at two, sometimes three jobs, and our one day together was Sunday. I remember doing the math on a piece of paper and figured that we had roughly 700 Sundays.

What a difference a road makes. Highway 39, the winding mountain road that provides the only access to Crystal Lake and other recreational areas of the Angeles National Forest from Azusa, quietly reopened this spring, breathing new life into a mountain resort that dates to the 1930s. Now forest officials are working to fully reopen trails and campgrounds at Crystal Lake, which is open for day use. The natural lake at almost 6,000 feet was closed after the Curve Fire of 2002 destroyed about 20,000 acres as well as hiking trails and campsites in the area.

The Dodgers won two games on their season-opening trip to Australia last week, but they may have lost two of their top three starters along the way after Clayton Kershaw was scratched from Sunday's game in San Diego because of a sore back and Hyun-Jin Ryu was considered questionable as his replacement after tearing the nail on his right big toe. “There's not a whole lot to tell you,” Dodgers Manager Don Mattingly said. “I think from this point we move forward carefully.” Ryu was injured running the bases during his start in Australia.
