One New York critic wrote about their hair stylist before even discussing their choreography, but Bill T. Jones and Arnie Zane don't care. By now, they're in seventh heaven with the premiere of their latest choreographic collaboration, "Secret Pastures," to be seen at Wadsworth Theater on Saturday as part of the UCLA "New Directions in Dance" series.

Bestselling erotica author Zane has been declared the biggest individual tax scofflaw in Maryland by the state's comptroller. The writer reportedly owes more than $340,000 to Maryland in back taxes. That's not all: She apparently owes the IRS about $540,000, the Washington Post reports. Zane was publishing bestselling steamy erotica for years before "Fifty Shades of Grey" was even a glimmer in E.L. James' eye. Her first work of short fiction hit the Web in 1997; she self-published three books before landing a deal with Atria, an imprint of Simon & Schuster.

Walt Disney Concert Hall - quite possibly Los Angeles' most photographed building - didn't come with a complete list of care instructions prior to opening. Architect Frank Gehry, the mind behind the $284-million structure, didn't know how the building's swooping stainless-steel arches would stay spotless. "Not only Frank Gehry but the window-cleaning consultant … were unsure how to clean certain areas," said Zane Britt, president of the Burbank-based Sunrise Window Cleaners.

Background: They were friends and foes, the Odd Couple of Santa Monica politics. After 12 and eight years, respectively, Dennis Zane and Herb Katz turned off their microphones at the same time, retiring from the City Council this month. They were the bookends of the council, Zane leading the renters' rights majority and Katz leading what are called the conservatives, even though he is a liberal Democrat.

The view from the sideline has never been this gloomy for longtime Baldwin Park football Coach Tony Zane. Sure, the Braves have had their share of early-season adversity during Zane's 30 years at the school, but the coach had always been quick to institute a new scheme or impart a few words of wisdom. That hasn't been the case the last two weeks, after Baldwin Park Unified School District officials banned Zane from coaching upon learning he has an irregular heartbeat.

Loren Grey, the 83-year-old son of Western author Zane Grey, was surrounded by a crowd Wednesday at the Fred Hall Fishing Tackle & Boat Show at the Long Beach Convention Center. He signed autographs and remembered what it was like growing up with his famous father, a passionate fisherman who wrote such books as "Riders of the Purple Sage." On display at the Zane Grey exhibit were two unpublished manuscripts, "Log of the Gladiator," and "Tales of the Coral Reef."

PBS' "Dance in America" undertakes a bizarre mission tonight (at 9 on KVCR Channel 24 and at 10 on KCET Channel 28 and KPBS Channel 15): presenting an hourlong promotion for a performance project that no longer exists. In form and content, "Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane and Company" looks exactly like one of those behind-the-scenes profiles of upcoming motion pictures that can be seen everywhere from "Entertainment Tonight" to MTV.

Dan Zanes isn't just a rock star: The Brooklyn-based performer with the raspy voice and the untamed mane of hair, who in an earlier life fronted the band the Del Fuegos, is also the granddaddy of the family-friendly folk music movement. He's released 10 albums targeted to toddlers and slightly older children, earning Grammy Awards and an ardent following. His tiniest fans are unlikely to take in his latest creative endeavor, however. The cross-generational folk singer segues from indie rock to indie cinema with "Wonderful World," an R-rated dark comedy about a failed children's musician played by Matthew Broderick, set for limited release Friday.

After floating the Rogue River's rapids and falling in love with its steelhead, Western writer Zane Grey bought a mining claim in 1926 at Winkle Bar, where he built a crude one-room cabin of peeled logs and hand-split shingles that became his wilderness retreat. After Grey's death, the cabin was acquired by the Haas family of San Francisco, owners of Levi Strauss and at one time the Oakland A's, who built their own modern cabins on the property but allowed the public to walk around the old Zane Grey cabin as long as they took nothing but pictures.

The letters are simple, full of gratitude and overflowing with history. "Zane, I received your letter of May 21 on June 13," wrote Sonia, an 89-year-old Ukrainian Holocaust survivor. "I also received the gelt [money] -- thank you very much to everyone." She continued, "During the war, our family was evacuated to far Siberia. We lived through cruel deprivations; hungry, naked and barefoot we returned home after Kiev was liberated.

Zane never intended to surround herself in mystery and intrigue. The author, whose steamy sex novels set among black professionals have propelled her onto the New York Times list of bestsellers, says if she could do it over, she'd have chosen a less provocative pseudonym. About a decade ago, she was in an America Online chat room and needed to call herself something. She picked Zane because it was the first thing that popped into her head; she's always liked the name.

Sounding as if he's trying to be a younger 2Pac who raps over the kind of bouncy tracks currently in favor with Southern hip-hop acts, this Atlanta rapper (whose "Callin' Me" single is a Top 10 hit) fails to present himself as anything other than a hand-me-down on his debut album. His lyrics are straightforward but unoriginal, and his production ranges from faceless to entertaining. * Albums are rated on a scale of one star (poor), two stars (fair), three stars (good) and four stars (excellent).

Dennis Zane, senior member of the Santa Monica City Council and a leader of pro-rent-control forces for more than a decade, said he will resign Jan. 1 to concentrate on his career and family life. Zane's midterm departure is expected to leave a significant gap on a relatively inexperienced council. Council members said they frequently rely on Zane's experience and institutional memory to guide them in their deliberations. "I panicked when I heard he was leaving," council member Kelly Olsen said.

DAN ZANES' idea of a good time is hanging out with family and friends old and new, making music, swapping stories or just grooving to the rhythm of the day. That casual approach and an all-inclusive spirit have fueled Zanes' plunge into the growing family music pool. And it's paid off for the former frontman of the alt-rock band Del Fuegos.
