The Bel-Air Country Club, one of the top golf clubs in the Los Angeles area, has admitted aviator Brooke Knapp as its only regular woman member, a club official said Thursday. Knapp, whose 50-hour, 22-minute flight around the world in 1983 set a speed record for business jets, said Thursday she waited about a year to obtain membership card No. 448. She said she understands she is the club's first woman regular member.

Word is out that financier Gary Winnick is quietly floating his storied estate in Bel-Air for sale at $225 million. Winnick, who founded and later sold Global Crossing, bought the Bellagio Road mansion in 2000 from Dole Food Co. owner David Murdock. The $94-million deal, which involved the telecom mogul ponying up a parcel of land, stood as the highest-priced home sale in California for years. Although a seller can ask any amount for a property, the 8.4-acre trophy home is for sale at the right price, said a person familiar with Winnick's real estate dealings who wasn't authorized to speak publicly.

Philanthropists Bud and Betsy Knapp, then the owners of Architectural Digest, set out in the 1990s to create a personal living space that allowed for large-scale entertaining and civic events, could display an extensive art collection and met their need for privacy. Five years in the making, the gated estate bordering the Bel-Air Country Club is pavilion-style, with the indoors and the outdoors connected through the extensive use of glass walls and doors.

A gated estate that was once home to producer David Wolper and then composer Jerry Herman has come on the market in Bel-Air at $23.45 million. The compound sits on an acre overlooking the 16th hole of the Bel Air Country Club. Built in 1951, the "French inspired" house has been redesigned with extended families in mind. Its 19,000 square feet of living space include a kitchen with great room, a formal dining room, a library, a bar and cocktail area, a catering kitchen, a gym, a sauna, a screening room, nine bedrooms and 11 bathrooms.

On the wall of the checker-carpeted cubbyhole that houses Bel-Air's rarest treasure, there hangs a cartoon. It is of a golfer wearing glasses, a cap, a tie, a glove and spikes while holding a driver. The golfer has everything but a body. The clothing and equipment seemingly float in mid-air. The golfer is a ghost. The cartoon was drawn for Eddie Merrins, the giant Little Pro, and anybody who has felt his gentle touch understands why.

Richard J. Sheirer NYC emergency official at time of 9/11 Richard J. Sheirer, 65, the former New York City emergency management chief who helped guide the city through the aftermath of the Sept. 11 attacks, died Thursday after experiencing chest pains. Sheirer had respiratory problems after Sept. 11, and his family did not know whether exposure to toxic dust from the World Trade Center contributed to his death. An official cause of death is pending. "He worked enormously effectively behind the scenes and gave credit to everyone else," said Rudy Giuliani, the city's former mayor.
