For Judith King, who left Southern California seven years ago to escape traffic, crime and congestion, it has been a long and rough road to a new home. First King and her family moved to the open spaces of Santa Fe, where they indeed found enchantment in New Mexico's sunsets and desert vistas. But she also encountered resentment from locals, who blamed Californians for raising property values and stealing jobs. She struggled for a year before she found full-time work at a biotech company.

Some movies sneak up on you. Some bowl you over. "Posse" (citywide) is definitely in the second category: a big, rousing, hip-hopping, trash-talking, dynamite-lobbing, all-stops-out, rock-the-house comic/epic Western that comes at you with both guns blazing and barely lets up for a second.

Call it a case of the American Dream gone dry. Ken and Eileen Bowman, both bus drivers for the Los Angeles Unified School District, were fed up with the smog and the traffic around their Northridge rental home. So they came to Green Valley, a rustic community of 1,200 people nestled in the mountains north of Santa Clarita. But the continuing drought in Southern California has transformed the Bowmans' rural town from a retreat from civilization into an outpost living on the edge.

"How many of you have watched 'NYPD Blue'?" Oxnard Det. Joe Chase asked a group of Camarillo High School students on a recent afternoon. The students raised their hands. "What do they do to the suspects?" he asked. "They beat them up," one student yelled. "Well, it doesn't happen like that here," Chase said. "We don't do that. We can't even touch them."

With reigning champion Moorpark High School out of the competition this year, Simi Valley High trounced 12 other schools in Ventura County's annual academic decathlon Saturday. When county schools Supt. Charles Weis, serving as the decathlon's moderator, announced that Simi Valley had bested the rest with a score of 43,733, the school's nine-member team burst out of the bleachers.

Here's a pop quiz: Which lecture sounds more appealing--a discussion of the three branches of American government or how O. J. Simpson's DNA might nail him for double murder? The overwhelming answer for students at Camarillo High School is O. J. all the way. A new course that explores the U.S. criminal justice system and its corresponding careers has proven so popular that instructors intend to offer it six times next school year--the first time the class is available.

There's a woman standing in a lush, sun-buttered field, where poppies are in riotous bloom and the air has the languorous, slo-mo quality of an endless summer's day. Still--we know this is coming--all is not quite right. "It's not supposed to be here," the woman mutters, as the camera backs off at warp speed, showing that she's not in the Amazon, she's in Antarctica, and her garden is a deep green scar across a vast white desert.

The dot-coms are digging in at the Sundance Film Festival. A year after the first swarm of Internet companies invaded America's premiere independent film festival, a smaller, more subdued cadre of dot-coms has returned to Park City, Utah. Shaking off the effects of last year's bloodletting on Wall Street, the dot-coms are ready to try again to connect with Hollywood.
