The urge to smoke was just too great for James Ellis. Low-tar, low-nicotine cigarettes didn't work. Nicotine gum didn't work, nor did nicotine patches. Treatment centers, where he was pumped full of shots and pills for months, didn't work. He puffed on cigarettes through it all, as he had since 1956. Even the removal of a polyp from his vocal cords in 1991 barely deterred him. "I was smoking almost before I could talk again," the Huntington Beach resident said.

By a 4-1 vote, the San Diego City Council Rules Committee decided Monday to oppose statewide legislation that would require port commissioners to be elected, not appointed as they are now. The committee also unanimously opposed another Port District bill that would allow tidelands leases to be reviewed by the state Lands Commission and would permit leases at below-market rates if the tenants were in danger of closing their businesses. State Sen. James Ellis (R-San Diego) proposed both bills.

Anthony James Ellis, 53, had been given a sentence of 120 days in jail, but Orange County Superior Court Judge Susanne Shaw altered it. After Ellis' bird bit him in March 2003, Ellis became angry and broke the bird's leg and beak.

The fire, at 2977 Mendoza Drive, began about 10 a.m. in a second-floor bedroom of one of the apartments, Battalion Chief James Ellis said. There were no injuries, but three people fled the burning building and the rest of the tenants, who weren't home at the time of the fire, were told to stay out of the building until Monday.

SPEND enough time trolling YouTube and Hollywood gossip blogs, and it's clear why so many celebrities guard their private lives almost as zealously as they hoard swag bags.
