Here's Hollywood clout: After the media became bored with the story of Polly Klaas, the young girl who was kidnapped from her home in Petaluma, Calif., Winona Ryder stepped up and kept the story alive in the national consciousness by offering a reward for the safe return of a little girl who, 15 years earlier in that same town, might have been her.Klaas was eventually discovered to have been murdered. "Little Women," which opened yesterday, is dedicated to her memory."I thought it was an appropriate dedication because it was her favorite book and I was offered the movie the day after she was kidnapped," Ms. Ryder recalls.

Nielsen Company's 211 Designated Market Areas.

There Winona Ryder was at a preliminary trial hearing in a girly Marc Jacobs dress complete with a schoolgirl pleated skirt. For jury selection? She effected a One-With-the-People simplicity in a floral sundress and a pink sweater. But she got serious once the trial began, often pulling her hair back in sweet Alice in Wonderland hairbands and pairing prim black coats with stylish Fendi purses. As she stood trial on charges that she stole more than $5,500 in designer clothing from the Beverly Hills Saks Fifth Avenue, it was clear Ryder had tossed aside her grunge chick look and cheeky Hollywood kitten style.

When the lights go out at McKinley High, there's speculation (from Sam) that it's a zombie apocalypse or (from Unique) that it's Beyonce's Superbowl half-time show. (Shout-out to the Ravens!) Anyhow, the power outage leads to the decision that New Directions' theme for the week is "unplugged. " Up first is Sam's acoustic rendition of The Righteous Brothers' "You've Lost that Lovin' Feelin'. " Then he goes on a rampage about how everyone is too technology-obsessed. Later we get Ryder on REM's "Everybody Hurts.

Zack Ryder has had the most up-and-down two years a WWE superstar can have. The 2011 calendar year was a dream for Ryder, whose YouTube hit Z! True Long Island Story made him the fifth-most followed WWE superstar on Twitter with more than a million fans. He was the United States champion, and was regularly showcased on TV and pay-per-view. But 2012 was a nightmare for Ryder. Seemingly all the glory of his YouTube hit fizzled (but the hard work of editing remained). After Wrestlemania, he was rarely seen on WWE TV. So far, 2013 is par for the course.

Pick, don't bet on U.S. Teddy Greenstein Chicago Tribune I'll pick the Stars and Stripes. You can justify the pick like this: Even though the Americans have lost four straight on the road, they've won two of their last three in the land of the free. Plus Tiger Woods is to Chicago golf what pre-busted Lance Armstrong was to the Tour de France. Woods won the last two majors played at Medinah. But the Europeans have the better putters (Luke Donald, Rory McIlroy, Ian Poulter)

It hit pretty hard in the immediate aftermath at Celtic Manor, where Mahan struggled more than once to get words out as he discussed the pressure that went with having the Cup tilt on the final match's result....

It's not the question one wants to hear hours before boarding a trans-Atlantic charter for one of golf's biggest weeks. Are you gassed? Matt Kuchar paused a beat but made no attempt to dodge. "I could use a couple of down days," the FedEx Cup runner-up admitted Sunday. "But I don't get a couple of down days for a couple weeks. I've understood that. " Ryder Cup vs. FedEx Cup. It's a delicate balance. Four years ago, one of the prime reasons offered for the United States' back-to-back Ryder Cup wipeouts was that the PGA Tour's best couldn't get back to high gear after essentially shutting it down after the PGA Championship.

— The British have a marvelous way with words. Journalist Oliver Brown has written that England's Lee Westwood is "golf's perpetual nearly man. " Truth is so much better when it is also lyrical. As today's Ryder Cup plays on toward Sunday's expected dramatic conclusion, one thing can be established without any final results. This is Westwood's time. He is 37, has been a fixture on both the European and U.S. tours for more than a decade, has won millions, has been the top dog on the European Tour twice — winner of the Order of Merit — and is the veteran on this European Ryder Cup team with six previous appearances.
