To the show-biz set, "Sunset Beach" triggers memories of the short-lived TV soap opera, in which women were inseminated with turkey basters and drinks were spiked with "Niagra." But to nature lovers, surfers or day-trippers eager to leave city life behind, the town from which the show lifted its name is one of Orange County's best-kept secrets. Less than an hour's drive from Los Angeles, it's still flying under the radar. An unincorporated area abutting Huntington Beach, Sunset Beach is only 1.

Los Angeles rap singer Dasean Cooper, a member of Da Lench Mob, was sentenced to 29 years to life Friday for the 1993 murder of his girlfriend's male roommate.

A jury last year convicted Cooper, known to the rap world as J-Dee, in the murder of Scott (Pearl) Charles, 23.

Crow is a rotten entree, especially for a true believer. I had been so sure about singing. I would mildly berate people who shied from it, who claimed a tin ear (very unlikely), a terrible voice (can be trained) or consuming stage fright (for wienies). It had never occurred to me that I might be wrong. After all, I had been a choral singer since college, and I had notched up some of my life's most satisfying moments on various stages with my vocal colleagues.
