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 person was hit by a car and killed early Sunday while crossing the 110 Freeway on foot, the California Highway Patrol reported. The collision happened around 4:30 a.m. on the southbound lanes of the highway, north of Century Boulevard. CHP officers arrived to find the male victim in the road. The car, a 2000 Toyota, was on the right shoulder of the highway. Its driver, a 36-year-old Los Angeles man, was not injured. In footage captured after the incident by LLN videographer Scott Lane, a man who appears to be the driver says he was trying to avoid hitting two people who were running across the highway.

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.

One helped revolutionize the church, becoming an enduring icon among progressive Roman Catholics who view religion as a vehicle for justice and peace. The other figured in a societal revolution outside the church, earning the adulation of conservatives by battling communism and contributing to the downfall of the Soviet Union. On Sunday, Pope Francis will canonize two pontiffs - John XXIII and John Paul II - in a ceremony here, marking the first time that two popes were made saints at the same 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."

"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.

DALLAS - It's taken them longer than they wanted, but the Ducks have found a formula to beat the fast, physical Dallas Stars. Now it's just a matter of proving it translates to the enemy ground of American Airlines Center. "You want to finish it here. That's our mind-set," Ducks forward Corey Perry said Saturday. Friday's 6-2 victory in Anaheim gave the Western Conference top-seeded Ducks a 3-2 lead in the first-round playoff series with Game 6 Sunday in Dallas, where both of the Ducks' losses have occurred.

DALLAS - The Ducks have been here before, and not just in the physical sense. Of course they've been to American Airlines Center, where they lost the third and fourth games of their playoff series against the Dallas Stars and surrendered the edge they'd earned by winning the first two games at home. But by overpowering Dallas, 6-2, at Honda Center on Friday, the Ducks took a 3-2 series lead and moved into position to close out the series Sunday. They've been there, too, needing a road win to wrap up a playoff series, but didn't do it. It was just last season.

Picking up where they left off in February, the two teams in Super Bowl XLVIII, Seattle and Denver, open the 2014 NFL season with blockbuster games. The league released its schedule Wednesday, revealing the defending champion Seahawks will play host to Green Bay in the opener Thursday, Sept. 4, and Indianapolis will play at the Broncos in the opening Sunday night game. Packers-Seahawks is a rematch of a 2012 "Fail Mary" game won by Seattle on the final play, a controversial touchdown pass that from every camera angle looked to be an interception by Green Bay. Replacement officials called it a touchdown for the Seahawks, however, and that game proved to be the final straw that ended the officiating lockout.

Gather 'round for a history lesson, of bright playoff campaigns gone bad . . . and gone south, fast. Sunday night's debacle at San Jose wasn't the first time the Kings have given up seven consecutive goals in a playoff game. It happened during, of all things, the Wayne Gretzky era when his former team, the Edmonton Oilers, beat the Kings, 7-0, in Game 1 of a second-round series in 1990. That team featured Gretzky, Luc Robitaille (now a team president), Rob Blake (now a Kings assistant general manager)

ABC's "Once Upon a Time" and CBS' "Good Wife" posted some of the biggest numbers on Easter Sunday, but Fox's "Cosmos" reboot was one of the only shows to improve on its ratings from last week.  "Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey," hosted by astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, earned a rating of 1.4 in the key 18- to 49-year-old demographic, up 8% week-to-week, according to early numbers from Nielsen. In 18-49, a ratings point equals roughly 1.3 million viewers. Overall, the science documentary averaged 3.7 million viewers.

During four decades, Annie Leibovitz has been a dominant force in portrait photography, first at Rolling Stone and then with increasing skill and vision at Vanity Fair and Vogue. At 64, Leibovitz works hard at it still and isn't ready for a broad career retrospective but takes a look back at some of her most lasting images in "Annie Leibovitz," a huge limited-edition book from Taschen. In the tradition of Helmut Newton's "SUMO," the new volume is about 20-by-27 inches and 476 pages deep.

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.

Fox's "Family Guy" and ABC's "Resurrection" were Sunday night's highest-rated network shows among key young adults, though it appears that golf-boosted CBS had the best ratings overall.  "Family Guy" scored a rating of 2.1 among key 18- to 49-year-old viewers, according to early numbers from Nielsen. Though Peter Griffin et al were down 9% from last week, the animated comedy was the top nonsports program on the major networks in the advertiser-coveted age group.  In 18-49, a ratings point equals roughly 1.3 million viewers.  PHOTOS: Behind the scenes of movies and TV "Resurrection," ABC's drama in which residents of Arcadia, Mo., are visited by dead relatives, earned a 2.0, down 9% week-to-week.

AUGUSTA, Ga. -- Like John Travolta's character in “Saturday Night Fever,” Jordan Spieth strutted down the Augusta National practice range, one confident stride after the next. While onlookers applauded, Spieth high-fived Sean Foley, the swing coach for Justin Rose. After reaching the practice green, Spieth bantered with playing partner Bubba Watson. He appeared completely in his element, a 20-year-old ready to prove that experience matters as much as the color of your shirt.
