"What's in California?" quizzed Don Worsham, the self-proclaimed Mayor for Eternity of Glen Ridge Drive. "Just a lot of congestion and pollution, from what I've heard. And phony actors and singers. Betcha there's not even an American Legion post there. " Well, dear friend and neighbor, you're right on the first two points, but a bit off base on the last. During our eight hotel tour de force, I saw dozens of Legion posts. And all of them, like most of the Golden State, were draped in fragrant red, yellow and white roses, all wild.

IRVINE, Calif. - If this year's Phillips 66 National Championships hold any enduring place in Michael Phelps ' mind, he might remember them as a needed, albeit painful, slug of reality. Until the past week, Phelps had treated his four-month comeback as something of a lark, working out when he wished and recapturing his past brilliance in fleeting bursts. He'd said he was happy simply getting back in the pool. But in truth, Phelps' love of swimming and his fierce need for victory always have been inextricably linked.

What stopped the murder rampage in California was a bullet to the brain ( "UC Santa Barbara begins 'day of mourning' for shooting victims," May 27). It was self-delivered by the murderer, but that should not be a controversy among the living. Knife, car and gun combined to visit misery to the community. If only someone had been able to deliver that bullet to the brain faster. That would have required a "good guy" with a gun on his hip. We as a society give police officers guns that we fully expect will never be used during an arrest (especially our own)

While plenty of Hereford High School teams have won county or state championships over the years, it took a group of engineering students to bring national recognition to the school.

They faced five other high schools in the national competition.

Immediately after the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the nation's unemployment rate dropped to 7.8 percent in September, conservatives started attacking the agency for producing figures that sounded a little too convenient for the Obama administration. The most prominent doubter was former GE chairman Jack Welch, who tweeted shortly after the announcement, "Unbelievable jobs numbers..these Chicago guys will do anything..can't debate so change numbers. " But he was hardly alone.

It certainly would seem that way. One calamity after another has hit the Golden State. Earthquakes. Firestorms. Prolonged drought. Intense smog. Unreal traffic gridlock. Recession. And now massive urban rioting. California seems to be under a perpetual state of siege.Yet for millions, California remains the land of opportunity. A vast tidal wave of Asian and Latino immigrants has swelled the population to 30 million, with another 650,000 people arriving each year. They are placing a strain on a state government already on the verge of breakdown.

CHICAGO -- Part of becoming an adult is accepting responsibility for the consequences of your actions. That's one tempting argument for arrested adolescence. It's much more satisfying to congratulate yourself for everything good that happens to you while blaming someone else for everything bad. Judging from his recent conduct, California Attorney General Bill Lockyer has been watching too many reruns of Peter Pan. His is the latest bid for membership in the Have Your Cake and Eat It Too Club.

Whenever Baltimore-area companies sell themselves to out-of-state firms, economists and local leaders alike bemoan the loss. Another headquarters gone. Fewer corporate decision-makers here. Possible job cuts. But Silicon Valley's deals for two Columbia firms - the planned Micros Systems acquisition, announced last week, and Sourcefire last year - strike local entrepreneurs in an entirely different way. They want more California tech giants doing business here, more billion-dollar-plus acquisitions.

The San Francisco 49ers will stay in the Baltimore area for several days following their Aug. 7 preseason matchup against the Ravens to participate in joint practices with the team that beat them in Super Bowl XLVII.

Have no fear that California ever will become "normal" or "boring" -- at least so far as its tourism advertising is concerned.Recently the state kicked off a $3 million nationwide television-and-print ad campaign geared to polish California's tarnished image as a vacation destination. Developed under contract with the J. Walter Thompson agency in San Francisco, the campaign includes as a component a new, toll-free telephone number -- (800) GO-CALIF ([800] 462-2543) -- that consumers can call to receive any of four "travel tip sheets" within minutes via fax machine.

LOS ANGELES -- A large rooftop billboard looking down at the Bill Clinton state campaign headquarters on Wilshire Boulevard proclaims: "A Race Even a Democrat Can Win."The sign does not, however, refer to this year's presidential race, but rather is an advertisement for the Hollywood Park racetrack -- an ad that mocks the Democratic reputation for losing, as in the string of five defeats in the last six presidential elections.Mr. Clinton hopes to demonstrate he has the support to buck that sorry record by winning the final major primary on the 1992 political track here in California on June 2. Ordinarily a candidate so far ahead in delegates at this time -- 1,824.
