Sinking into a big living room sofa, George Jacobs is ringed by a lifetime of mementos, his Palm Springs apartment a shrine to koo-koo years of highballs, high rollers and voluptuous dames overflowing strapless gold lame. There are snapshots of Marilyn Monroe, signed publicity portraits of Frank Sinatra and Mia Farrow and scores of images -- movie stills, lobby cards, even a poster-size mug shot of Sinatra -- arranged collage-style on the wall.

Fremont Coach Taja Rodisha did not offer any excuses for the way the Pathfinders played Friday against San Pedro. "San Pedro outclassed us," Rodisha said after the Pathfinders were humbled, 31-7, in the City Section 3-A Division finals at Gardena High. "They showed us tonight who was the best team in the City." Fremont had four turnovers in the second half. San Pedro, which won its second consecutive 3-A title, took advantage of the mistakes to outscore the Pathfinders, 24-0, in the second half.

A triplex in West Hollywood that has counted both singer Frank Sinatra and film star Marilyn Monroe among its former tenants has come on the market at $4.75 million. Sinatra's and Monroe's rentals overlapped in 1961. He used his apartment as a getaway and she lived in hers, according to "Mr. S: My Life With Frank Sinatra," written by George Jacobs, his valet at the time. The owner is Beverly Coburn, actor James Coburn's first wife. She bought the building in 1989 for $1.643 million from interior designer Kalef Alaton, who had remodeled it. The three units in the gated compound share a courtyard and patio space.

A pedestrian was critically injured Saturday evening when he was hit while crossing Coast Highway in Laguna Beach.
