As the volunteer manager for the Southern California Chapter of the Over the Hill Gang I thank you for the support The Mature Traveler column has given. The response has always been terrific. The Sept. 20 article by Hank Kovell about our opening an Orange County branch was very good . . . but since I have mail sparked by the article, asking questions about the rest of Southern California, I would appreciate it if you would share the following with your readers: The Over the Hill Gang is a national organization based in Denver, with 10 chapters nationwide.

A Superior Court judge has ruled that Los Angeles city officials can seek to recover $5 million from a street gang that has long held a monopoly on the downtown heroin trade, officials announced Tuesday. The civil judgment was sought by City Atty. Rocky Delgadillo, who called it a new front in the fight against gangs. It was the first such judgment since a 2007 state law was passed allowing county and city prosecutors to go after a gang's ill-gotten assets.

The Sugar Hill Gang sued the Beastie Boys on Tuesday, accusing their fellow rappers of illegally using portions of Sugar Hill's "Rapper's Delight" on their new CD, "To the 5 Boroughs." The suit, filed in Manhattan federal court, says the Beastie Boys' song "Triple Trouble" infringes the Sugar Hill Gang's copyright. The Beastie Boys "credited the sample on the album but they never had a license," said the Sugar Hill Gang's attorney, James Cinque.

The May 7 article, "Already Over 50, and They're Gaining Speed," in the San Diego At Large column, reflected the spirit of the Over the Hill Gang. It reflected it so well that many other active seniors have been trying to reach us to get more information. In this volunteer organization we don't have a listed phone number. To make it simple for you readers to get our free information we welcome stamped, self-addressed envelopes to OHG, P.O. Box 1113, Solana Beach, CA 92075. GEMMA PARKS Solana Beach

Regarding the letter from Gemma Parks Oct. 18 on the Over the Hill Gang walking group: My Rainbow Walkers group has been going for five years. It's open to all ages of adult hikers. Singles are especially invited. We walk and talk on the horse and hiking trails in the La Canada-Flintridge area. We meet the most interesting people and sights. There is a requested $1 donation; I do this on my own and don't have the backing of a nonprofit organization. Please write, including a stamped return envelope, for details.

Dave Butz has reached the point in his football life where he's become the game. Free as a 305-pound bird, ready and seemingly eager to be bagged by the highest bidder, he may be the only player in National Football League history twice able to sell his services in a mostly unrestricted market. Coming to the Washington Redskins and, perhaps, going. Predictions about where Butz might play next season, if he plays at all, are oil-slick slippery. With two Super Bowl rings, he might be the sort of on-the-field and clubhouse presence a contender covets.

The fast-growing Over the Hill Gang, a national organization for people older than 50 who are interested in travel and group sports activities, has started a branch in Orange County. Until now, Los Angeles-area members have been making their arrangements through the San Diego branch.

Hail, hail, the now-Way Over the Hill Gang was mostly all here Saturday to witness the induction ceremony for George Allen, the Washington Redskins' and Los Angeles Rams' quirky, consumed and singularly focused former head coach. Allen was enshrined posthumously in the Pro Football Hall of Fame on a steamy afternoon that his son, echoing his late father, described as "a great day to be alive." Close to 18,000 streamed into Fawcett Stadium just behind the Hall to hear Sen. George Allen (R-Va.

The Over The Hill Gang, which started in Colorado a number of years ago primarily to promote skiing among seniors, has grown into an active year-round group, nurtured chiefly by local chapters across the country. The groups of 50-plus skiers now include fast-growing chapters in Los Angeles, Orange County and San Diego. Winter sports, namely downhill and cross-country skiing, are still the primary attraction.

They take a very long time warming up before a game. Very long. Oh so long. The game could be over before they even take the field. But they have to be careful: These legs slathered with liniment have been running bases since F.D.R. was President--or maybe a bit before that. When play does begin, the competitors use special rules that allow them to overrun bases and avoid sliding.

Producer Martin Bregman is playing coy about a sequel to actor-writer-director Alan Alda's 1981 hit, "Four Seasons"--"I plan to make an Alan Alda film next summer" was about all he'd tell us. But Jack Weston, a co-star in the dramedy about three couples sharing a mid-life crisis together, spilled the beans.
