Q: I know the angels were very much a part of Jesus' birth (for example, in making the announcements to Mary and the shepherds), but do they still do anything? Or are angels no longer active? — Mrs. J. McL. A: The Bible makes it clear that God's angels are still very much at work, although their ministry is largely unseen by us. Even when they take human form (as they can do on occasion), they may not be recognized as angels. The author of the book of Hebrews wrote: "Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some people have entertained angels without knowing it" (Hebrews 13:2)

We are witnessing the birth of a transcendent baseball career right in front of our eyes, as Angel outfielder Mike Trout has electrified his team and Major League Baseball in the first half of the 2012 season. There has not been a rookie this dazzling since the days of New York Yankee outfielder Mickey Mantle. It is evocative of Robert Redford in "The Natural. " The first year of a player in any sport is traditionally a time of adjustment. The competition is so intensified compared to the minor leagues or college that the first year is filled with misadventure.

Chris Yemma Costa Mesa American Little Leaguer P.J. Maloney avoids labeling himself a leader, with his rationale being baseball is a team sport. Sometimes, though, it's tough to avoid the truth. The Angels' pitcher tossed a complete-game four-hitter and drove in two runs to lead the Majors division team to a 5-1 District 62 Tournament of Champions first-round victory over the Robinwood Astros Tuesday at Huntington Valley park. "I knew I could pitch the whole game if I started off good and didn't give up a lot of hits," said Maloney, 12. The Angels will face Fountain Valley's second seed in the quarterfinals at 9 a.m. Saturday at the same location.

This post has been corrected, as noted below. So much about the punk band X is a testament to Ray Manzarek - from its music to its lingering presence. "The fact that we exist is in and of itself a tribute to Ray," said Exene Cervenka, co-lead vocalist of the Los Angeles ensemble. She recalled receiving a text about the death of the Doors' founding member and keyboardist, who produced four albums for X in the '80s, and praying it was a mistake. It wasn't. Manzarek, 74, succumbed to a prolonged battle with bile duct cancer on May 20. Having last played alongside him at West Hollywood's Roxy Theatre in summer 2012, Cervenka retired to bed that night in tears.
