If you can hold it up to your ear and hear the ocean, most likely John Haney has it. Haney owns Seal Beach's California Seashell Co., one of the oldest shops on Main Street. The store carries more than 400 types of seashells from all over the world. They adorn mirrors, necklaces, picture frames, wind chimes and other craft items. "We thought it was a good idea, because tourists want to take home an ornament from the town they're visiting. It's a memory of their vacation," said Haney, 44.

It has been almost 10 years since a rainy-day idea for a board game turned into Trivial Pursuit. The game has sold about 76 million copies and is available in 22 languages in 32 countries. Of the family and friends who originally invested in the phenomenon, several have become millionaires, including Scott Abbott, a wire-service copyboy from Montreal who borrowed a few thousand dollars from his mother to participate, and John Haney. And what are Abbott and Haney doing with their money?

It was cinnamon-scented whisk brooms last year. But this year, Christmas tree ornaments crafted from seashells are the odds-on favorite to become the hot sellers at the annual Christmas Crafts Festival at Knott's Berry Farm. And with good reason. They are a transplant from the swap meet at the county fairgrounds in Costa Mesa, where John Haney has sold them for years. He has made a career of selling the $2 to $9 ornaments through his California Seashell Co.

Anne Haney, the late-in-life character actress who portrayed the family court supervisor in "Mrs. Doubtfire," Michael Douglas' secretary in "The American President" and a nun in "Changing Habits," had a novel explanation for going into the movie business.

Can Charlie deal with Charlie? This is one of the questions that will be answered Sunday in the 49th running of the $200,000 Hollywood Derby at Hollywood Park. Certainly, Charlie Barley, the 3-year-old Canadian colt, will be outnumbered by the forces of Charlie Whittingham, the 76-year-old Southland trainer. Seeking to win the Grade I Derby for only the second time this decade, Whittingham will enter four horses--River Master, Seven Rivers, Live the Dream and Shining Steel.
