When Sean Burroughs steps to the plate in the Little League World Series, dozens of children scramble from their hillside perches beyond Lamade Stadium to stand behind the right-field fence. Two hundred feet away, the left-handed hitting standout of the Long Beach All-Stars waves an aluminum bat in the still central Pennsylvania air, eagerly awaiting a pitch he can drive over the short fences.

Ordinarily, Ron Paradis answers the phone at Johnny Rocket's, his downtown hamburger joint, by saying, "It's a great day at the beach!" But lately, he says it differently, as though the caller had said, "Hold the sincerity." These days, Paradis' anger has gone from rare to well-done. "We're lucky no one's been killed" in Laguna, he said with a snarl Wednesday. "We're aggravated, frustrated, depressed. . . . We expect another storm, and there's not a damn thing we can do about it.

The letters had been written, the machine guns loaded, the landing craft readied. This amphibious assault ship was steaming ever closer, and the captain was on the bow. More than 1,800 young Marines were at the brink of war. And then--peace. Just two hours after the fighting men of the Wasp were told that they were headed for combat in Haiti, and just four hours before the helicopters were to whop off the flight deck, their commanders announced a stand-down.

Timmy Lewis steps to the plate, his hair flowing from beneath a batting helmet like a golden waterfall. His father, Larry Lewis, paces in the dugout. Seconds later, Timmy cracks a home run that clears a sign board 260 feet away in left field. It propels Long Beach to a 5-2 victory over San Ramon Valley in the final game of the Western Regional in San Bernardino.

SAN FRANCISCO - For decades, surfers, smelt fishermen and picnickers flocked to Martin's Beach - a crescent-shaped haven south of Half Moon Bay, backed by stunning cliffs. They paid a small entry fee to the family that ran the property for a century, and their good times were memorialized in bucolic postcards. Then in 2008 a new owner came along and barred the gate, spurring protests and a spate of litigation. That battle intensified Tuesday when a suit was filed on behalf of the Surfrider Foundation, alleging that the limited liability companies that own the land - with a Silicon Valley billionaire behind them - are in violation of the California Coastal Act. Helping to litigate the case is former Republican Rep. Pete McCloskey.

Pvt. Robert Murphy looked down. In the moonlight, through the open door, he could see the coastline. The C-47 banked to the left. Over the engine noise, his commanding officer shouted: "Hook up!" At 300 feet, the pilot hit the green light and yelled: "Let's go!" Murphy, face blackened, carrying his Thompson submachine gun, 300 rounds of ammunition, a six-inch boot knife, a switchblade and a 40-pound radar, was the third man out the door.

Catalina blue. Descanso green. Toyon red. Manchu yellow. Decorative tile in those shimmering hues is almost everywhere the eye alights in Avalon--its primitive-style artwork defining and highlighting the Santa Catalina Island town.
