Tessla, the 2-year-old filly champion of England in 1988, will make her U.S. debut Saturday at Del Mar in the $75,000-added Osunitas Handicap for fillies and mares at 1 1/16 miles on the turf. "She was trained in England by Henry Cecil and was one of the favorites for the Oaks there," trainer Eddie Gregson said. "I got her last winter at Santa Anita but she got a minor shin injury." The Kentucky-bred daughter of Glint of Gold has won three of nine starts and earned $177,422.

So as the sun declines below Detroit (the lake a cool assurance of alternatives to hard dark high-rise miscellaneous) the colors of the end of light relax along the horizontal edge of this blue place with burnt sienna rose and oranges that soften into regular domestic tragedies of night without a lover's willing face to stop the desperation of the chase for daytime stars that glint and blur and mix and lift like mica sprinkling on a concrete hierogylph of altered space where by himself a young

Bear Flag Fish Co. is the seafood wonderland we all long for on idle summer days, a fish market-cum-restaurant where brilliant slabs of tuna glint like rubies and the spindrift of crashing waves hangs in the air. It's minimalism at its seafaring best — Bear Flag understands that often all a fish needs is a satisfying char and the salty rush of a beach breeze. The restaurant sprouted from between the corporate cracks of Newport Beach's Balboa Peninsula. Since it opened in 2008, owner Thomas Carson, a Newport native who grew up working on his father's commercial fishing boat, has seen Bear Flag blossom.

I was beginning to think we'd never get around to making the CD that Nathaniel Anthony Ayers has been talking about for years. Last summer, on a trip to San Francisco, where Mr. Ayers was honored for his spirit by the National Alliance on Mental Illness, we came up with the perfect name for it: "Putting on Ayers." But when readers and friends asked when it would be available, I had no good answer. Some days Mr. Ayers is fine; some days not. Some days he wants companionship; other days he needs to be alone.

There was something for everyone: style, show-biz flair, camaraderie, nostalgia, friendly competition and, above all, a somber reminder of the times in which we live. Organized by members of the California fashion industry, the event was held last Friday night at the Century Plaza Hotel to benefit AIDS Project Los Angeles.

Wind finds the northwest gap, fall comes. Today, under gray cloud-scud and over gray Wind-flicker of forest, in perfect formation, wild geese Head for a land of warm water, the boom, the lead pellet. Some crumple in air, fall. Some stagger, recover control, Then take the last glide for a far glint of water. None Knows what has happened. Now, today, watching How tirelessly V upon V arrows the season's logic, Do I know my own story? At least, they know When the hour comes for the great wind-beat.

Say you're a hotelier in downtown Los Angeles. And in the spring of 2010, a fancy new Marriott and Ritz-Carlton land in your front yard. What's your move? For the owners of the former Holiday Inn City Center Hotel, the answer was simple: Redo your rooms, change your name and move upscale. So on March 15, the hotel dropped the Holiday Inn brand. Beginning this summer (the date's still in flux), it will be known as the Luxe City Center Hotel. Its prime location, affordable rates, bus-friendly parking lot and spacious rooms (about 380 square feet)
