To the wonderment and, no doubt, perplexity of hundreds of thousands of commuters daily, it rises in Sepulveda Pass like a 14th Century mountaintop stronghold. Sprawling along a ridge line high above the San Diego Freeway, the emerging structure of boxlike buildings and interlocking walls presents a portentous visage of money and power.

One of roughly a half-dozen mountain lions living in the Santa Monica Mountains was killed Tuesday trying to cross the 405 Freeway near the Getty Center at the start of the morning rush hour. Circumstances of the death, apparently from a collision with a vehicle, were not known, and the California Highway Patrol said it had no record of an emergency call reporting an animal-related incident in that area Tuesday. "We believe it may have made such a daring crossing attempt possibly because it was being flushed out of the area it was in by another male lion," said Woody Smeck, superintendent of the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area.

For nine sun-drenched months, Stanislaus von Moos, a leading architectural theorist from Switzerland, lived rent-free in a furnished apartment in Santa Monica. He enjoyed a cozy office with a world-class library and ocean view. On leave from his real job, he was surrounded by fascinating colleagues who, like him, spent their time thinking, reading, doing whatever they wanted--and getting paid for it.

Five and a half years ago, when dust was still rising at the Getty Center and all the world was speculating about what, exactly, the $1.3-billion castle on a hill would be, the Getty's No. 1 art guy made an astonishing statement. "We have gained respect for visitors who don't come to a museum with the idea they are visiting a school or library, but as if they are going to a park," said John Walsh, a scholar of Dutch painting who directed the J. Paul Getty Museum from 1983 to 2000.

An important Jackson Pollock painting owned by the University of Iowa that Republican state legislators have lobbied to sell is now leaving the state -- temporarily. Next month the massive 1943 oil painting called "Mural" is traveling to the Getty Center, where it will be the subject of an extensive conservation effort expected to last 18 months. Pollock painted the canvas, which measures roughly 8 feet tall by 20 feet long, as a commission for collector Peggy Guggenheim a few years before he began his so-called drip paintings, his most famous work.

The Getty Museum is introducing a new parking program that will allow visitors to visit both the Getty Center in Brentwood and the Getty Villa in Pacific Palisades on the same day and only pay once for parking. The new rule is scheduled to go into effect Saturday. Parking at either location currently costs $15. If visitors want to experience both sites on the same day, they would have to pay a total of $30 per vehicle. Under the new program, visitors will only have to pay $15 once and obtain a coupon that is good for same-day complimentary parking at the other Getty.

Visitors who drive to the Getty Center are encouraged to make parking reservations to ensure their admittance to the center's parking structure, museum officials said. The Getty Center has attracted large crowds during the holiday season and the center has parking for only 1,200 cars. Last week, the Los Angeles City Council imposed a two-hour parking restriction in neighborhoods surrounding the museum (residents are exempted).
