It appears as if Clippers reserve guard Jamal Crawford will play Saturday after completing a two-hour practice Friday, though the team still has him listed as a game-time decision. Crawford, who has sat out the last five games because of a strained left calf, said there was "definitely a chance" he would play against the Sacramento Kings at Staples Center. Crawford said the decision will be made after he wakes up Saturday morning and sees how the calf responded to practice.

Tribune Co.'s newspaper unit will pay a dividend of up to $275 million to its parent when it is spun off later this year, according to a government filing. The new Tribune Publishing Co. will own the Los Angeles Times and seven other newspapers. Shares of the company will trade on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol TPUB. Details about the dividend were made public in a lengthy filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission submitted late Friday. The dividend has sparked opposition from critics who say it would weigh on the company at a time of diminishing advertising revenue and intensifying digital competition.

 Birmingham pulled off the shocker of the week on Friday, knocking off Chatsworth, 5-4, in a West Valley League thriller. It was Birmingham's first win over Chatsworth since the 2002 season. In the seventh, freshman Justin Rorick led off with a single. After a walk, Victor Robles put down a bunt that was thrown away, allowing Rorick to score the winning run. Alexis Miranda had two hits and two RBIs for the Patriots. El Camino Real completed a sweep of Taft with a 7-2 victory.

Last week, the Senate Intelligence Committee, led by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), voted to declassify parts of its report on the CIA's rendition, detention and interrogation program. The White House, the CIA and the Senate still have to negotiate which portions of the report will be redacted before it is made public. But this is an important step in resolving the ugly dispute that has erupted between the intelligence committee and the intelligence agency. The dispute presents two very serious questions.

Call it a curveball that nobody wants to swing at. After decades of forcing consumers to pay for channels they don't want, the pay-TV industry is strongly resisting Time Warner Cable's efforts to make subscribers of all its rivals pony up $4 to $5 a month for a Dodgers channel. All eyes are currently on satellite heavyweight DirecTV, whose 1.2 million Los Angeles customers give it a roughly 30% share of the local pay-TV market, slightly less than Time Warner's estimated one-third market share.

Miami's loss has become UCLA's gain. Malcolm Bunche left Miami's football program seeking more playing time, and he fills UCLA's greatest need on the offensive line. Left guard Xavier Su'a-Filo made himself available for the NFL draft and Bunche slides nicely into what had been a vacancy. "He gives us that big body, gives us that experienced offensive lineman we need," Coach Jim Mora said. "He has acted a little bit like a mentor to some of those guys as well, in his own quiet way. I appreciate that he's here.

Mariners 5, Angels 3 KEY MOMENT: Angels left-hander Hector Santiago struck out Brad Miller for what appeared to be the third out of the third inning, but his strike-three wild pitch went to the backstop, allowing Miller to reach base. That sparked a four-run rally, as Robinson Cano walked, Justin Smoak hit a run-scoring single and Corey Hart hit a towering three-run homer to left on an 0-2 fastball for a 4-3 Seattle lead. BOX SCORE: Mariners 5, Angels 3 AT THE PLATE: Mike Trout singled, Albert Pujols crushed a two-run homer to left, and David Freese followed with a solo shot to center for a 3-0 Angels lead in the first.

ISLA VISTA, Calif. — The scene Monday on Del Playa Drive was a curious, uniquely Isla Vista mix: part laid-back beach vibe, part riot aftermath. Beach towels fluttered over cliffside balconies as UC Santa Barbara students enjoyed spring weather. Dumpsters overflowed with beer boxes and red cups. "I was in the riot," one young woman said nonchalantly to her friend as they rode beach cruisers. "I got hit by a tear gas grenade," a male student told his friends as they carried an inflatable pool over their heads.

More than a year after it approved a report critical of the CIA's interrogation and detention policies, the Senate Intelligence Committee has voted to make a portion of the document public. It's now up to President Obama to ensure that the agency doesn't mount a rear-guard attempt to censor or sanitize the committee's findings in the name of national security. Thanks to news reports and a report by the CIA's inspector general, Americans long have been aware of both the broad outlines and some abhorrent details of the Bush administration's mistreatment of suspected terrorists after 9/11.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - The slow and awkward decay of the powerful aura of Tiger Woods continued here Tuesday on a rain-soaked golfing cathedral that smelled like a damp towel. For the first time in 20 years, Woods will not be here for the Masters, a tournament he has won four times, his virtual ownership of Augusta National symbolizing his decades of dominance. Yet his fellow golfers do not sound relieved. They do not act as if reprieved. They spoke of this giant, haunting presence with neither fear nor reverence.
