The home designed by renowned Modern architect John Lautner for  comedian Bob Hope and his wife, Dolores, is for sale in Palm Springs for $50 million. Sited to overlook the Coachella Valley, the concrete, steel and glass house was built in 1979 and has about 22,000 square feet of living space. The curving copper roof plays off the shape of the nearby mountains. There are six bedrooms and 12 bathrooms, according to public records. Murals on the first floor and the pool area are by Garth Benton, who did the murals at the Malibu Getty.

J.S. Bach had to put his wig in his shorts on Sunday. "It was getting in my eyes and I was having a hard time seeing," said Bach, a.k.a. Wes Ashford, a 33-year-old runner from Alta Loma. "The wig was hot, so I took it off at the mile mark and stuffed it into my shorts." The stuffed hairpiece didn't keep Ashford from winning his race, however. And so ended the fourth annual "Bach Bay 8K and 1/2 Marathon," one of Southern California's more colorful road races.

Jheri Hatten is banished to The Bench whenever she breaks the most minor rule at Hope House. Refuse to do her chores, tell someone to "shut up" instead of "be quiet," or even call another resident "dude," and she could be sentenced to spend up to 45 solitary minutes in a corner of the room--on The Bench. But Hope House is no kindergarten. It is a rigidly structured and highly disciplined program for 40 men and women who are among Orange County's most chronic drug abusers.

At Hope House, the news lent a bit of extra cheer to the annual potluck Christmas dinner. At Phoenix House, a senior counselor could only say, "Whoopee!" There were deep sighs of relief Sunday at relief agencies throughout Orange County as news spread that a council managing Orange County's dwindled funds had authorized emergency payments to 108 desperate nonprofit groups.

A serious shortage of treatment centers is making it increasingly difficult to help hundreds of Orange County's worst drug addicts, many of whom must wait up to six months for care after qualifying for the government-funded programs. Discouraged by long delays and harmed by continuing drug abuse while on waiting lists, roughly half of those promised a bed at the county's two residential treatment centers never show up on admission day.

Takeharu Shiraishi dreamed up the idea on a trip to Arkansas: If he built a full-size replica of Bill Clinton's boyhood home right here amid the swimming pools and the personally assigned golf carts on his sprawling resort in Okinawa, they would come. And come they did. Not Clinton, at least not yet, but the tourists.

The rate of delinquent home loans is falling as high-risk mortgages from the housing boom are replaced by loans written to the strict standards enforced after the bust. A Mortgage Bankers Assn. report Thursday said that after seasonal adjustments 7.58% of all residential mortgages were delinquent by at least one payment as of the fourth quarter of 2011. That was down from 7.99% in the third quarter of 2011 and 8.25% in the fourth quarter of 2010. The trade group said its quarterly survey covers about 88% of home loans.

For the last dozen years, Capitol Hill hasn't been the friendliest place for organized labor. But that's changed with the new Democratic-controlled Congress, and labor is pressing its agenda. That was apparent Thursday as the House approved a bill to make it easier to form a union -- a longtime priority of labor, an important Democratic constituency. The vote was followed by a victory celebration in the House speaker's office attended by the president of the AFL-CIO.

Carrying three surfboards, a wetsuit and his George Foreman grill, Eddie Solt arrived at Cal State Channel Islands ready for the ultimate California college experience. The 21-year-old English major, a junior transfer from Torrance, was among the first to move into new student housing over the weekend at the Ventura County campus. Solt said he was stoked about his new apartment, but with the nearby beaches and a full academic load, he wasn't planning to spend a lot of time there.

Republican Dick Zimmer conceded his House race to Democratic Rep. Rush Holt on Wednesday, 22 days after the election and 12 days after Holt declared victory. Zimmer's concession came after a recount that started Monday and that increased his opponent's lead to 755 votes out of 291,527 votes cast for the two men. "I had hoped the recount would narrow the margin, but in fact the ball bounced in the other direction," Zimmer said.

The sand of the title is the Third World or, specifically, Iran. The fog is America or, specifically, the San Francisco Bay Area. The house is everything people have struggled over through history's shifting tides and fortunes: survival, possession, identity, pride. Or, specifically, it is an unremarkable waterside bungalow in dispute between a hard-pressed young American woman and an immigrant, a former colonel in Shah Mohammed Reza Pahlavi's air force.

The woman with the long, chestnut hair curled up on a couch Thursday and wondered what was going to become of her face. Catherine Mary Williams, 30, hoped that today a surgeon's knife would restore her badly disfigured face into at least some semblance of what it had been before. "I don't expect a miracle," she said, "but I do have high hopes." Williams' dreams of becoming a model were crushed when she was hit by a car and dragged along 1,500 feet of asphalt and railroad tracks.

Until now, two pressing questions have been facing America: Just how much money did Bob Hope pay in taxes last year and what does his massive mushroom-roofed palace in Palm Springs look like inside? Who would know the answers better than Hope? More on the taxes later--but the operative figure for last year was $4 million in taxes. The question of money first came up at a charity dinner at the Hopes' extraordinary Palm Springs home.

Here, along the streets of Boyle Heights, are buildings emptied by the subway that may never arrive. A large gray Craftsman-style house sits boarded up in Mariachi Plaza. Vacant apartment buildings and a travel agency on Soto Street are shuttered with plywood. And on Fickett Street, weeds sprout in front of a rambling white house with wide red steps and a yellow rosebush in the frontyard.

Martin and Michelle Frank both grew up in the Jackson, Wyo., area, but they were almost forced out because they couldn't afford to stay. "I know of several people that we went to high school with that have had to move out of town," said Michelle, a night desk clerk at a local motel. With spectacular mountain views, good skiing and easy access to two of the country's best-known national parks--Yellowstone and Grand Teton--Jackson has seen housing costs soar.
