After the battle of Marathon, in which the Greeks drove the Persian invaders into the sea, an Athenian athlete named Pheidippides was commissioned to run the good news the seven leagues back to Athens.

By a 3-2 vote, the Avalon City Council denied a transportation permit requested by Jerry Dunn of the Hotel Vista del Mar to provide courtesy bus service to hotel guests from the boat dock to the hotel. The council said courtesy vehicles add to traffic congestion and the city has enough taxis and trams for hotel guests. Dunn said he could not obtain an auto club's "four diamond" rating without courtesy transportation.

How do you get ready for a marathon? Well, if you're Jerry Dunn of Spearfish, S.D., you run 26.2 miles every day for the 25 days preceding the Boston Marathon on April 15. Dunn, 50, is a marathon junkie. In 1991, he ran across the United States, averaging 17 miles a day, six days a week during the 3 1/2 month trip. In 1993, he broke the world record for most marathons in a year, with 104. "I have a passion for running," he said. And for understatement.

Japanese media baron Kagehisa Toyama bought 2,000 acres of the Ojai Valley to build a private golf club for millionaires, and his Farmont Corp. has launched a sophisticated public relations effort to win approval for the project. What's dismaying is the way Farmont keeps changing its image in response to the winds of public opinion. In 1987, Mr. Toyama tried to gain approval for a development so massive--golf course, resort facilities, swimming pools, tennis courts, equestrian facilities and up to 30 guest bungalows--that it immediately ran afoul of the county.
