As thoroughbreds were groomed and prepped for the day's races, a group of elderly Japanese Americans circled the stables of Santa Anita in a tram. For six months in 1942, they lived here, in the same stalls where horses had slept, before being shipped to internment camps in isolated areas of the country. Back then, arriving adults mourned the loss of homes and businesses, while children explored the grounds, making new friends. In the barns, a thin layer of asphalt was all that separated families from layers of manure.

VANCOUVER, Canada - First place in the Pacific Division became the Ducks' again Saturday night, when they returned to the brand of play that put them there in the first place. "It's a goal" to win the division, said center Saku Koivu, one of five Ducks players who scored in a 5-1 victory over the Vancouver Canucks at Rogers Arena. "We're more trying to pay attention to our game, the way we want to play, the way it has to be," Koivu said. Ducks rookie goalie Frederik Andersen stopped 31 of 32 shots as Anaheim established a new team record for most road wins (23)

Dodgers President Stan Kasten was full of good news. The Dodgers have sold a record 35,000 season tickets. For the first time they will have sold 3 million tickets by their home opener. TV ratings were up 40% last year and are expected to rise again this season. Only, about that. Those rising TV ratings just might require that most of Los Angeles is actually able to view the games. The Dodgers' mainland opener in San Diego is Sunday and Time Warner Cable has yet to sign an other major provider up with the team's new regional sports network.

Profit at Tribune Co., the parent of the Los Angeles Times and other newspaper, radio and television properties, fell sharply last year amid a further decline in newspaper advertising and a significant drop in earnings at its broadcast division. The Chicago media company reported net income of $241.6 million for the year, down 43% from $422.5 million in 2012. Total operating revenue fell 8% to $2.9 billion, with a 6% decline in publishing and an 11% drop in broadcasting. For the fourth quarter, revenue dropped $97 million, or 11%, to $773 million, partly because the quarter included one fewer week than the previous year's final three months.

Regularly scheduled service on California's bullet train system will not meet anticipated trip times of two hours and 40 minutes between Los Angeles and San Francisco, and are likely to take nearly a half-hour longer, a state Senate committee was told Thursday. The faster trips were held out to voters in 2008 when they approved $9 billion in borrowing to help pay for the project. Since then, a series of political compromises and planning changes designed to keep the $68-billion line moving ahead have created slower track zones in urban areas.

Just in case anybody wonders, Don King is alive and well. Actually, more so than ever. He is 82 going on 50. The hair doesn't quite stand on end in its salute to electrical shock treatments as it once did. That's because there isn't enough of it anymore. But the faded American flag jacket, and the big cigar that he just kind of chews on, and the five or six layers of jeweled necklaces, and the American flag tie, remain standard props. Also standard is the hilarious babble with which he promotes a boxing match from a podium.

DALLAS -- Even when the Clippers lost their composure Thursday night, they still found a way to own the Dallas Mavericks. Even though the Clippers have trailed the Mavericks in the fourth quarter in each of their games this season, Los Angeles still found a way to own Dallas. With Chris Paul leading the offense and Blake Griffin playing lockdown defense, the Clippers overcame three technical fouls and a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit to defeat the Mavericks for the third straight time this season, 109-103, at American Airlines Center.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. - Florida defeated UCLA in the 2011 NCAA tournament, eliminating the Bruins in the second round. Still, it was a Sweet 16 moment for current UCLA freshman guard Bryce Alford - his birthday was a couple of months earlier. "I just got my driver's license," Alford recalled. "I was driving. " To a high school kid from New Mexico, UCLA's loss was far from monumental. "I probably watched the game, or saw the score, whatever," Alford said. "It didn't have a whole lot of importance to me. " It's said that those who don't learn from history are doomed to repeat it. But does that apply to basketball?
