If Los Angeles ever wants to join the ranks of Las Vegas or Miami in attracting tourists who want to party, it needs to free its night spots from having to make the last call for alcohol by 2 a.m., according to one state lawmaker. State Sen. Mark Leno (D-San Francisco) has introduced legislation that would allow California cities to seek permission from the state Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control to allow their nightclubs, restauraunts and bars to sell drinks until 4 a.m. "Many cities in California have dynamic social activities that are vital to their economies, but they lack the flexibility to expand their businesses,” Leno said.

Dear SOS: I recently moved from San Luis Obispo to Denver. I miss the berry bars at House of Bread in San Luis; they were my favorite breakfast after a run or before class, and they were even my last meal before commencing the 18-hour drive from SLO to Denver! I'd love the recipe so I can have a slice of my old college town here in my new big city. Thank you! Gabby Robinson Denver Dear Gabby: These bars are rich and buttery, with nice tart and sweet notes from the jam, and you might never guess how easy they are to make.

SAN DIEGO -- One of San Diego's more infamous sex criminals, due to be released from prison after serving 25 years behind bars, will instead stand trial to determine if he remains a "sexual predator" and should be kept at a state mental hospital. That was the decision Thursday by San Diego County Superior Court Judge Louis Hanoian after a hearing involving convicted rapist Alvin Quarles, who had been set for release from prison. Dist. Atty. Bonnie Dumanis and Los Angeles attorney Gloria Allred are attempting to keep Quarles from being released.

When Kenneth Hartman was 19, he came across a drifter in a Long Beach park and, for no particular reason, beat him to death. For that 1980 murder, he was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. There, Hartman proved himself to be the kind of aggressive, violent man society is relieved to have behind bars. He was big and pumped iron to get bigger; he did drugs; he got thrown into solitary; he fought, brutalized and stabbed his enemies. It's hard to say what's more remarkable: that he eventually turned away from all that, or that he is able to write about it with such clarity and grace.
