* The proprietor of the California cuisine restaurant Joe's in Venice. Gone South: We frequently take short trips. One we did recently, which was really, really fun, is we got a room at the Four Seasons in Carlsbad. Our kids have a great love of Lego, so we've made numerous trips there to go to Legoland. We always look for a hotel that has a pool, which is almost as important, if not more so, than going to the amusement park.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Since the bullets began to fly on freeways here, Taylor Stevens has stuck to the back roads. Rikki Rohret keeps her eyes on the overpasses. Behind the wheel, Joe Miller tries not to think about being an anonymous gunman's next victim. Somebody has been firing at vehicles, a serial triggerman who police warned seemed to be randomly targeting motorists, declaring his own misguided war against his fellow drivers. Since the shootings began in March, police have linked at least a dozen incidents along the network of freeways that connect this Midwestern city, which sees itself as a genteel cousin of Rome for its fountains, or Paris for its boulevards, not as some hulking U.S. city where an armed man could run amok.

Joe Miller was fired as the baseball coach at San Clemente High School, the school's athletic director, Jim McNaught, said Monday. Miller was dismissed from his position in June, at the end of the school year. The Tritons were 22-64-1 overall during Miller's four years as coach. San Clemente was 13-47 in South Coast League play during that time and never finished higher than fifth place.

SEATTLE -- Now that the mole who helped bring down the leadership of the Alaska Peacemaker Militia has talked publicly , the big question on some minds in Alaska is: Why was federal FBI informant William Fulton involved in political campaigns? The controversy has erupted over the past few days, as it emerged that Fulton, an Anchorage military surplus store owner who helped gather evidence against militia leader Schaeffer Cox, had helped manage the unsuccessful campaign of right-wing former radio host Eddie Burke for lieutenant governor in 2010.

Going to the dentist and going to a shopping mall have just about equal appeal for me. And the idea of eating at the mall has never been compelling. At least not until a few weeks ago, when I decided to expand my horizons and venture out to Reed's, the new Manhattan Beach restaurant opened by Brandon Reed in partnership with Joe Miller (of Joe's in Venice). Say "beach," and I picture a restaurant at least flirting with sand, something with the tang of seaweed in the breeze.

Tell me, what food-loving traveler can visit San Sebastian in the Spanish Basque country and not fall head over heels for pintxos (pronounced "peenchos"), the local version of tapas? It happened to me. It's happened to countless other foodies discovering Basque cuisine for the first time. And it happened to Joe Miller, chef-owner of Joe's Restaurant in Venice and now of Bar Pintxo in Santa Monica too. Slip into one of the more than 50 tapas bars lining the twisting, narrow streets of San Sebastian's old town, order a glass of Txakolina wine, try one or more of the house specialties and then move on to the next bar for its specialties.

It's a late Sunday morning and sun is streaming into the window of Joe's Restaurant, onto the worn wood floors of the raffish bungalow, and dancing off the beams of the high ceiling. The effect is utterly charming, adding to the relaxed atmosphere of this beloved Venice restaurant.

Once, after I had bemoaned southern California's lack of good fish houses, I heard from a man who wanted to remind me of the salmon at Joe's Restaurant in Venice. "I'm too old to drive anymore, and I don't go out at night, but I'll take two buses each way to go to lunch at Joe's a couple of times a week," he told me. "It's my little treat to myself." All restaurateurs should have such loyal customers. The truth of the matter is that Joe's has dozens of them. Some will corner me at social occasions to insist that Joe's is the best restaurant in L.A. It definitely stands out in the crowd of corporate, concept-driven restaurants that dominate the scene.

Lisa Murkowski was certified as the winner of the Senate race in Alaska on Thursday, ending two months of legal wrangling over the seat she has held since 2002. Murkowski has scheduled a swearing-in reception on Jan. 5 in Washington, according to her website. Murkowski will become the first senator to be elected in a write-in campaign since Strom Thurmond in 1954. Joe Miller, a "tea party" movement favorite, won the GOP primary over Murkowski in August, forcing the incumbent to wage her successful write-in campaign.

Sen. Lisa Murkowski claimed victory Wednesday night over defiant challenger Joe Miller after building a decisive lead in near-final vote tallies. The Republican incumbent persuaded more than 100,000 Alaskans to write in her name ? a highly unusual feat in a statewide race. If her victory holds up through a possible recount and court challenge, she would become the first senator elected by write-in since 1954. "I think we can say our miracle is here," she told about 50 cheering supporters in Anchorage as the state was completing its count of the last 700 absentee ballots.

The outcome of the U.S. Senate race in Alaska may well turn on a legal standard established by a state election so hotly contested it was eventually decided by a coin toss. After a recount, two lawsuits and much hand-wringing, the 2006 balloting was still a tie. But despite the coin-flip ending, the case firmly established the state's approach in deciding disputed write-in ballots. "We have consistently emphasized the importance of voter intent," a court ruled. In the current race between Republican Joe Miller and write-in candidate Lisa Murkowski, the Republican incumbent, legal experts say that Miller will probably have a hard time disputing write-in ballots just because of slight misspellings.

With the count of write-in ballots trending heavily toward Lisa Murkowski in the U.S. Senate race, the campaign of Republican nominee Joe Miller announced Thursday it would file suit to gain access to precinct voter records in an attempt to track down what campaign officials said were instances of voting irregularities. Conservative political consultant Floyd Brown, acting as what he called a "volunteer strategist" for Miller, said the campaign had opened a voter fraud hotline to collect reports he said were flowing in to conservative radio talk show programs claiming bullying of voters, threats of job losses and other forms of purported intimidation aimed at garnering votes for Murkowski.

The tedious scrutinizing of the more than 92,500 write-in ballots cast in the U.S. Senate race in Alaska got underway in a chilly warehouse Wednesday, with observers for Republican Joe Miller's campaign determined to challenge any variation in the spelling of rival Lisa Murkowski's name. And judging from the multiple derivations voters attempted ? Lisa Muroski, LSI Murkswke, Lisa Mvrowski, Lesa Merkesken, Lisa M., along with at least one ballot cast for Jesus Christ ? there will be no shortage of opportunities for argument.

The day before Tuesday's election, 30 mph winds and freezing rain buffeted the state capital of Juneau, but no matter: Mark Vinsel, head of the United Fishermen of Alaska, stood on a street corner waving signs for U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski. A week or so earlier, Vinsel and some of his fellow commercial fishermen had mailed 4,000 postcards urging boat captains to write in Murkowski's name on the ballot. They organized phone trees to remind friends and crew members of the senator's work on Exxon Valdez oil spill tax benefits, fishing subsidies and salmon habitat protection.

DEAR SOS: The apple tarte tatin at Joe's restaurant in Venice is the best this side of the Atlantic (or maybe the other side too). Would you ask Chef Joe Miller for the recipe? --SUSAN DEAR SUSAN: Joe is a fine California chef, and his French apple tarte tatin is simple and indeed very good. He warns that the apple syrup will make a mess while it bubbles on your stove top. "If the spatter is cleaned up while it is still hot," he says, "the syrup will wipe right off."

U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski's unusual write-in bid to hold on to her Alaska Senate seat appeared to be gaining steam through early Wednesday, but analysts warned the state is almost certainly in for a long, close ballot count whose official outcome may remain unknown for weeks. With more than 78% of the precincts tallied, write-in votes ? most presumably cast for Murkowski ? were leading with 39.96%. Tea Party Express-backed Republican Joe Miller was trailing with 34.89%, while Democrat Scott McAdams had 24.15%.

U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski held on to an apparent lead Wednesday in her write-in bid to hold on to her Senate seat in Alaska, though "tea party" candidate Joe Miller's campaign leaders said they were not nearly ready to concede. With more than 98% of the ballots counted in the tense, three-way race, write-in ballots had gained 41% of the vote ? a mark considered crucial to success by many analysts ? while Miller still trailed with 34.2%. Democrat Scott McAdams had 23.7%. "This is about our state.
