A stolen car, 40 tires and a couple of pay telephones were among the items that a crew of workers discovered Tuesday in the third annual cleanup of La Tuna Canyon in Tujunga.

Joey Gomez won the 15th annual Turkey Trot in 31 minutes, 11 seconds, then about 20 minutes later, people at the 10-kilometer race heard sleigh bells: Santa Claus and his reindeer had crossed the finish line. More than 2,700 runners took part in the Dana Point Chamber of Commerce event, making it the largest Thanksgiving race on the West Coast, according to organizers.

Here, time seems to move at a slower pace as out-of-towners pushing baby strollers through the rows of quaint antique stores mingle with dog-walking locals in a sociable parade of window-shopping, polite bargaining and people-watching.
