As a boy, Jim York was a frequent and enthusiastic visitor to Marineland, a seaside amusement park on the Palos Verdes Peninsula where killer whales hurtled through the air, dolphins frolicked and an immense great white shark--stuffed and mounted--leered at delighted throngs. Along with a generation of Southern Californians, York marveled as Orky and Corky--the popular male and female killer whale act--rocketed out of the water in awesome leaps. He laughed at the sea lions' antics.

What if a shadowy organization told you it had been quietly keeping its eye on you and had concluded that you were exactly the sort of person who should be privy to its secrets for wealth and power? What if that organization promised the success and youthful vitality of investment guru Warren Buffett and Viacom chief Sumner Redstone, who already possess these secrets? And what if all this could all be yours absolutely free? "I'd think it was a scam," said Los Angeles resident Jim York, 60, who recently received a 10-page letter from a recruiter identifying himself only as Bill.

The sister-in-law of GOP presidential hopeful Paul Laxalt committed suicide by taking a lethal dose of the sedative phenobarbital, Napa County Coroner Jim York ruled today. The body of Katherine Ann Laxalt, 52, was found June 2 along the banks of the Napa River. York said that questions were raised about the death because of the relatively moderate amount of phenobarbital discovered in Laxalt's system and that all other possible causes had to be ruled out.

Re "Area has great view, foggy future," Nov. 13 Dear Lord, please help developer Jim York understand that taking beautiful open space in a huge landslide complex and trying to make millions by building ugly McMansions on it, possibly reactivating the landslide complex, is wrong. Lord, we don't need any more developers to build ugly McMansions on Palos Verdes Peninsula. We are rich with ugly McMansions. Lord, we don't need any more geologists paid for by developers to claim the land is stable, only to have it slide into the ocean, and then expect the city, and the citizens, to pay for the damage.

Not long after he moved to California, John Monks bought three acres of land on the Palos Verdes Peninsula on which he planned to build a home with enough land to indulge his joy of gardening, where his kids could grow up, and he and his wife could retire. The land in Portuguese Bend had a 180-degree view of the ocean, and on a clear day, Catalina seemed so close it felt like you could walk there. "It was probably my father's favorite place to be," said Monks' son Dennen. "My father desperately wanted to live there."

It hardly appears historic, just another small house on another shady street in the suburban landscape of Long Island. "I'm older than the house," quips owner Charles J. Weber, 83, a retired American Airlines aircraft mechanic who moved in with his wife, Kathleen, when the house was built all of 48 years ago. But the house has a special place in history because of one name: William J. Levitt.

NAMES AND NUMBERS * Sweet Music: It is difficult to determine which of Frank Viola's statistics is more impressive: 5-0 record, 0.99 earned-run average, or 40-3 strikeouts-to-walks ratio in 36 2/3 innings. The New York Mets' left-hander, determined to re-establish his fastball in the wake of last year's 13-17 record with the Mets and the Minnesota Twins, has revived memories of his 24-7 American League Cy Young Award season in 1988.
