Jeffrey Cross, who has served as interim director of the Southern California Coastal Water Research Project since June, 1991, has been named to head the agency, which is a key source of information on contamination of Santa Monica Bay and other coastal waters. The agency, based in Long Beach, had been without a permanent director for a year and a half, leading to what officials said was poor morale and the resignations of nearly half of the scientific staff.

More people will be able to raft the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon each year, but they will be spread out over more of the year and will travel in smaller groups, under a management plan the National Park Service adopted Thursday. More rafters will be shifted to fall, winter and spring, and the number of daily summertime launches of both motorized and nonmotorized commercial rafts will decrease. The result is expected to be more tourists overall.

Long ago, glaciers scooped a large bowl out of the north shoulder of onetime volcano Magee Peak. Thousand Lakes Valley, as the bowl is known today, is filled with ponds and small glacial lakes. The valley is a favorite destination of hikers looking for a remote getaway in the southern Cascade Range, which is about an hour from the Oregon border. The lakes within Thousand Lakes Wilderness (part of Lassen National Forest) are much less visited than those in nearby Lassen National Park.

It's New Year's Day, and everyone wants to know what's ahead. Shall we call Chase Econometrics or badger Henry Kaufman? Don't be silly. California is just crawling with psychics. Better yet, they have fax machines. They work at this full time, and their clients include entrepreneurs, investors and movie stars. Why should we be any different? Thus, in honor of the New Year I've impaneled the first Times Board of Psychics in order to bring readers crucial business news of the future.

UCLA surgeons performed a rare "domino" liver transplant Tuesday, giving a 29-year-old victim of a genetic disease half of a close friend's liver and then implanting his organ in a woman with liver cancer. The complex surgery, which is expected to save both patients' lives, illustrates the desperate steps surgeons must sometimes take for patients who are not likely to receive conventional transplants.

For nearly a century, Southern Californians have outwitted the climate, going to extraordinary lengths to quench their enormous thirst. They have punched holes through mountains, carved channels in the desert floor, drained distant rivers and lakes and lifted water up steep passes. Yet after all these Herculean efforts, perhaps the simplest and only drought-proof option for overcoming the chronic water shortage lies right at our doorstep, in the vast, salty Pacific.

The show was "The Edge," an MTV-esque television magazine production by the British Broadcasting Corp. The topic was "Baywatch," a runaway hit in England. The scene: Santa Monica in late July. The statements: outrageous. "Santa Monica Bay, with the most polluted beaches in the entire world," intoned a well-coiffed anchorman in tank top and very un-British tan. Scantily clad "Baywatch" actors, he continued, face grave dangers as they gambol in the surf while shooting their scenes.
