Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) urged labor leaders Sunday to prepare for an uphill battle as they seek to strengthen the labor movement, beat back "powerful interests" and enact financial reform.   Warren made a speech at the quadrennial convention of the AFL-CIO, which kicked off Sunday in Los Angeles. The labor federation's convention has brought together traditional union groups with new, progressive allies such as the Sierra Club and the NAACP.  Warren, the freshman senator and newest member  of the Senate Banking Committee, voiced her support for the labor movement, which has seen its political power wane in recent years as union membership has dropped.  Photos: Jobs with the longest and shortest workdays "In every fight to build opportunity in this country ... in every fight for working families, we have been on the front lines because our agenda is America's agenda," Warren said.  "But let's be clear, we have always had to run uphill," she said.

 Perhaps Downey Warren should change its nickname from Bears to Phantoms, as in Cathedral Phantoms, because there's a big Cathedral influence. Former Cathedral Coach Scott Pearson has three of his former players on his roster _ pitchers Alan Trejo and Byan Duenas and catcher Julian Perez. Perez, a senior, had to sit out last season after transferring. Duenas, a junior, will sit out until April. Trejo sat out about a month last season. All are top players for a team that's beaten Loyola, JSerra and Lakewood in winter games.

HOUSTON - Polygamist sect leader Warren Jeffs, who has been serving a life sentence in Texas prison, has been hospitalized, officials said. Jeffs was in stable condition Monday at a Galveston hospital, where he was admitted March 11 for treatment of a non-life-threatening condition, according to Texas Department of Criminal Justice spokesman Robert Hurst. Hurst declined to release additional details, including why Jeffs, 58, was hospitalized. Jeffs was transferred to the hospital from a state prison in Palestine, about 140 miles north of Houston, where he had been held in isolation.

Of all the many jaw-droppingly dishy anecdotes in Peter Biskind's new biography, "Star: How Warren Beatty Seduced America," I found myself especially astounded -- in a "what would a therapist make of this?" kind of way -- by the saga of Beatty's on-again, off-again early '60s affair with Natalie Wood. It was a soulful romance, even if Beatty wasn't exactly faithful, but the strangest events occurred after Beatty had moved on. The coda to the affair, according to Biskind, occurs in the mid-1960s, when Beatty began dating Maya Plisetskaya, the Bolshoi Ballet's prima ballerina who, inconveniently, was already married and didn't speak a word of English.

Re "Campaign calls for Christians to adopt needy kids," May 13 Contrary to this article, Saddleback Church Pastor Rick Warren did not come to an adoption summit hosted by Focus on the Family in Colorado Springs, Colo., to "criticize a narrow focus on abortion, homosexuality and pornography as un-Christian." He came to exhort churches nationwide to find room for the 115,000 U.S. children awaiting adoption. Is the quote attributed to Warren accurate? Sure. But it's hardly a criticism of the "religious right," as the article states.

With the partial exception of Bartletts, great locally grown pears are scarce at farmers markets in Southern California, where warm winters and disease render cultivation problematic. This makes it all the more special that Al Courchesne of Frog Hollow Farm, a rock star organic fruit grower from Brentwood, Calif., an hour east of San Francisco, will make a cameo appearance the next two Wednesdays at the Santa Monica farmers market to sell his legendary Warren pears. Arguably the most delicious pear variety in the world, praised by the likes of Alice Waters, Martha Stewart Living and Oprah Winfrey, the Warren combines the best features of its ancestors, with the intensely sweet, rich, spicy flavor of Seckel, and the larger size and voluptuous juiciness of Comice.

WASHINGTON -- Sen. Elizabeth Warren has launched a campaign to make banks boring again as she pushes legislation to enact stricter regulations forcing deposit-taking financial institutions out of the investment business. The Massachusetts Democrat wants to reinstate the Depression-era Glass-Steagall law, which separated what she called boring checking and savings accounts that are backed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. from risky investment banking. And after joining three other senators Thursday in introducing a bill to do that, Warren went to the Twitterverse to rally support.

Warren Sapp wasn't happy when Michael Strahan set the all-time sack record in 2002 on what appeared to be a dive by Green Bay quarterback Brett Favre. And with Strahan a leading candidate to join him in the Hall of Fame this year, Sapp is unhappy with his fellow former lineman again. "When you stack it up, and he only has four straight Pro Bowls and a mythical sack record that y'all still walk around like it's something to be praised -- I mean y'all have got to get off your high horse in New York and speak about the real," Sapp, now an analyst with the NFL Network, told Newsday.

Even billionaires like Warren Buffett think watching sports is more fun with a little money on the line. Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway is insuring a Quicken Loans contest that will award $1 billion to anyone who can correctly guess the winners of all 67 games in this spring's NCAA men's basketball tournament. Buffett said the idea for the contest was his. He said he was talking sports with Quicken Loans founder and Chairman Dan Gilbert in November when he pitched the idea to insure a $1-billion prize for a perfect bracket.

WASHINGTON -- Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Tom Coburn on Wednesday introduced legislation requiring federal agencies to disclose more information about settlements that end government investigations, such as whether the money paid by companies is tax-deductible. The bipartisan bill -- Warren is a Massachusetts Democrat and Coburn an Oklahoma Republican -- reflects widespread concern on Capitol Hill that banks such as JPMorgan Chase & Co. and other companies often cut deals to avoid potentially steeper penalties and court costs for violating federal laws.

Pagett, the basketball coach at Rancho Santiago College in Santa Ana, was the keynote speaker at a jam-packed South Bay luncheon honoring Rolling Hills High School Coach Cliff Warren, Pagett's mentor at El Segundo High in the mid-1960s. Soon after taking the dais, Pagett broke down, brushing away tears. "I used to pop off at officials.

WASHINGTON -- Billionaire investor Warren Buffett said a failure to raise the nation's $16.7 trillion debt limit would be "pretty damn dumb" as Democrats and Republicans square off in a showdown that could lead to the first-ever federal government default. Buffett called the fight "disturbing" in a CNBC TV interview that aired Friday. But he said it's "so dumb" that investors and business people know it would get resolved quickly. "The market is not going to fall apart because they expect Washington will only act irrationally for a certain length of time," said Buffett, chief executive of Berkshire Hathaway.
