Scott Sterling, the 32-year-old son of Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling, died as a result of a pulmonary embolism and  "narcotic medication intake" in what Los Angeles County coroner's officials classified as an accidental death, authorities said Monday. Sterling was found dead in his apartment on Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu on New Year's night. Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department officials quickly determined his death did not involve foul play but appeared to involve some type of drug overdose.

QUITO, Ecuador - As the four-car train rolls through the clouds and begins its descent of the Andes, Bette Bleeker has a practical concern. "I hope someone checked the brakes," the Chicago resident asks. It's a fair question, given the 1,755-foot descent we're about to make on the Devil's Nose, one of the steepest sections of railroad in the world. The historic route requires several switchbacks, including one length where the train reverses direction and heads backward as it gingerly stair-steps down the highlands.

Among the revivals and West Coast premieres that dominate our theatrical offerings, the startling phrase “world premiere” implies an exhilarating, possibly risky novelty: You can't help expecting pyrotechnics. But Rachel Bonds' “Five Mile Lake,” receiving its world premiere at South Coast Repertory, is a small, quiet play in which nothing particularly momentous happens. In fact, you may forget you're watching a play at all, and that the people in whose every fleeting expression you have become so deeply absorbed are actors reciting memorized lines.

Two men were rescued from the waters off the Marina Del Rey coast Wednesday night after their boat capsized. The boat was outside the marina breakwater and somehow got tangled in a lobster net line after 7 p.m. and was taking on water, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. "When the deputies arrived, they saw the vessel ... capsize and saw two men jump into the water," the Sheriff's Department said. The men were pulled aboard the deputies' patrol boat and taken to safety.

LET 'EM EAT TUNA: Lobster hunting, a popular wintertime sport along the South County coast, ended last week, and none too soon. Overfishing early in the season wiped out the harvest, leaving latecomers empty-handed, state officials say . . . . "It was really good when the season opened, then it tapered off," said Andy Olsen of Dana Wharf Sport Fishing . . . Fish and Game officials tell divers not to worry, the population will regenerate by the October lobster season.

Can someone please communicate the following to the people responsible for scheduling the NHL games on Fox: 1. Wayne Gretzky no longer plays hockey in Los Angeles on a regular basis. 2. New York is on the opposite coast from Los Angeles; 3,000 miles away. 3. New York Ranger games have no bearing on the Mighty Ducks or Kings making the playoffs. 4. We don't care to see the Rangers every week. 5. If you could forget to load the batteries in the glowing puck it would be greatly appreciated.

Since changing the name of Crystal Court to South Coast Plaza, the name seems to get more and more burdensome. It is now often referred to as the Crate and Barrel, Macy's Home Store Wing, formerly Crystal Court. May I suggest an easier one? West South Coast Plaza and East South Coast Plaza.

Reading "Coasting at Water's Edge" by Christopher Reynolds [Feb. 1] was enough inspiration for me to drive up the coast for a couple of days. If you're headed to Ragged Point, featured in the article, you may want to take time to stroll the locals-built footpath along Moonstone Beach Drive in Cambria. On the other side of the street I stayed at the cozy Castle Inn by the Sea. Someday I plan to follow Reynolds' trail all the way up to the Battery Point Lighthouse in Crescent City. Problem is there are too many distractions along the way, so this may take a very long time.

Lana Del Rey was in no way afraid of the selfie. At three different points in the alt-torch singer's 45-minute Outdoor Stage set Sunday night, Del Rey descended into the audience to vamp and pose with fans, allowing - encouraging, even - the rampant repurposing of her image across social media. She even prolongued one cinematically sexy smooch with a male fan who couldn't seem to get his phone-camera game together quickly enough to simply point and shoot.   Given Del Rey's nostalgia-tinged sex appeal, who could have blamed him?

Kauai's Na Pali Coast is too rugged for roads, but it can be admired by land, sea and air. For some travelers, it is the most compelling part of the North Shore. Land options: The Kalalau Trail begins in Haena State Park, next to Kee Beach, at the end of Kuhio Highway. It's 11 miles each way, muddy and steep. The path, full of rocks and wayward roots, climbs slopes, dips to the beach and crosses five valleys. If you want to hike six or more miles of it, you'll need enough food and gear to camp at least one night, perhaps two or three.

KAILUA-KONA, Hawaii - "Don't dip your head into the dark chocolate," a male voice behind me said. Dark melted chocolate swirled in 2-foot-wide pots, filling the air with the scent of cocoa as our group toured the Original Hawaiian Chocolate Factory in Kailua Kona on the Big Island. During our weeklong trip to the Big Island in October, my husband, Michael, and I had decided that when we weren't snorkeling, we would explore its back roads, an investigation that soon turned into a do-it-yourself foodie tour of the Kona Coast.

This post has been updated. See note below for details. Some residents in Long Beach and the north Orange County coast reported feeling and hearing what some thought was an earthquake Wednesday afternoon. But Caltech seismologist Kate Hutton said no earthquakes were reported in the area during the time the shaking was reported. “It's not an earthquake. It's probably an offshore sonic boom,” Hutton said. Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor said any sonic boom would come from a military aircraft.

A Vernon battery recycler may not resume lead smelting until its furnaces can operate in compliance with tough new air district rules on arsenic emissions. The South Coast Air Quality Management District's hearing board ruled Tuesday that Exide Technologies, which is accused of endangering the health of more than 100,000 people across southeast Los Angeles County, must maintain "negative pressure" in its furnaces. That means particles from the smelting process must be sucked into air pollution control devices that can keep toxic compounds from wafting over neighborhoods.

Whatever critics might say about George Noory, he earns credit for keeping an open mind. In fact, Noory's unmatched success on overnight talk radio may be due to his willingness to think the unthinkable -- such as when NASA gadfly Richard C. Hoagland rails about a government cover-up of ancient structures on the moon, or when a listener calls to report being attacked in bed by a dark, malevolent spirit. "It sounds kind of farfetched," Noory conceded of the latter, "yet I can't tell you how many people have had this syndrome . . . the 'Old Hag Syndrome.

If the producers of the HBO series "Getting On" go to Costa Mesa to see Samuel D. Hunter's "Rest," the American theater might lose another talented playwright to television. This prolific dramatist's latest play, which is having its world premiere at South Coast Repertory in a finely acted production directed by Martin Benson, put me in mind of the American version of the dark British television comedy in which the old and frail are tended to by caregivers who could use some urgent care themselves.

Los Angeles-based models-turned-fashion-designers Anine Bing and Katheryn Rice both count Alessandra Ambrosio and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley among those stepping out in their clothes, and each captures a take on effortless West Coast style. But the similarities end there. Both designers "understand what the cool girls like, in a different way. But it's the same girl," says Jeannie Lee, owner of Satine boutique on West 3rd Street, which carries both lines. Hard rock Danish-born Bing's eponymous label (www.aninebing.com)
