Over the MLK holiday I took the family to visit the USS Iowa that is permanently docked down in San Pedro. Ever since it was moved here in October, I wanted to visit the famous battleship. Wanting to avoid the huge crowds that it attracted, I figured a Sunday with two NFL playoff games was a good day to go. Since the attraction is fairly new, no guided tours are available yet. However, strategically spread around the massive ship are volunteers, including former veterans who speak firsthand about the experiences of being on the Iowa.

Peter Samore EL SEGUNDO -- Crescenta Valley High softball pitcher Kris Franks said the game was about respect. Her coach, Dan Berry, agreed. San Pedro came into Saturday's El Segundo Tournament semifinal as the top seed in the L.A. City Section playoffs -- which begin today -- and arguably one of the better teams in Southern California. But what angered the Falcons was that they weren't recognized in the same elite category as the Pirates. Franks and CV used that as inspiration and beat San Pedro, 1-0, in just 72 minutes at Richmond Park in El Segundo.

Erik Boal GLENDALE -- It became clear to Verdugo Hills High baseball Coach James Mulcahy that as the innings unfolded in his team's first-round game of the L.A. City Section Invitational Bracket playoffs, that fate was destined to play a cruel trick on the Dons' second-year mentor. As if relinquishing a five-run lead early in the game and a one-run advantage in the sixth inning weren't evidence enough, Mulcahy's fears were finally confirmed in the ninth inning of Friday's contest.

I was on the phone with George Ellison of the Special Collections Room at Central Library the other day when he suddenly put me on hold. When he came back, he told me he had just given the historic Verdugo branding iron to someone from the parks department and that it was on the way to the Verdugo Adobe. There it would join the Verdugo platter, which had been delivered several weeks before. "It's too bad to see it go." Ellison said. "But people will be able to see it up there."

Don’t let fear keep out the arts I would like to second Laura Friedman’s motion to establish an art district in the San Fernando Road corridor (“Paradigm change needed to bolster arts,” Community Commentary, Dec. 19). Diane Roberts is correct in saying that the district should be on Brand Boulevard (“Arts district: location, location,” Mailbag, Tuesday). Logically, that’s the best location. But, as Roberts said, the rents there are too high.

After my wife graduated from high school, she enrolled in a community college downtown. She wasn't given a car to take her to classes. She, like the rest of her high school classmates, got to her new school the same way she had traveled to her high school -- by public transportation. At that time, taking a trolley car to school or work was the normal and accepted way of getting there. Pat had her choice of three modes of transportation: subway surface car, elevated train and interurban train system.
