The bad news came, as it always seems to, in the middle of the night.My wife answered the phone. Shadows cast by the headlights of a passing car rippled through the blinds. "Oh, no," she muttered, still groggy. "Oh, my God. No."She hung up. "Jeff and Ann are dead," she said. She made it sound as though dead were the most improbable thing anyone could ever be."What?""And Siena. There was a car accident."I got up and wandered downstairs. Memories of the Fairbanks family darted through the dark rooms.

2005 Edna Valley `Paragon' Sauvignon Blanc, San Luis Obispo County ($15) This full-bodied, ripe dry white wine offers an outstanding array of penetrating flavors. There are nuances of peaches, figs, honey and herbs, and the wine snaps to a finish with refreshing "bite." It's an interesting balance of lushness and edginess. Serve with fish, Cajun or creole cuisine.

1995 B.R. Cohn Cabernet Sauvignon ($17)This smooth, refined red wine (80 percent San Luis Obispo County, 20 percent Sonoma County) is a worthy little brother to Cohn's flagship Olive Hill Vineyard cabernets. There's generous black-cherry fruit here, a light hint of Provencal herbs and a Bordeaux-like acidity. This moderately complex wine should improve for a year or two but basically is structured for early consumption.Pub Date: 10/19/97@

Just when you thought there was no place left to plaster advertising, someone has come up with one: grocery checkout dividers.The dividers are those black or gray rubber tubes you put between your lettuce and corn flakes and those of the next person in line at the supermarket.A California company, Alpine Promotions, has come up with the idea of using them to advertise not only in-store products like Wrigley's gum, but also things like new films and theme parks."All we've done is turn these unsightly rubber sticks into something attractive to both shoppers and advertisers," says Glenn Hogle of Alpine.
