John Morgan, an ocean swimmer, says the beginning of a race is chaos, but he never realized how difficult it could be until he entered the Seal Beach 10-Mile Rough Water Swim last summer. He dove into the surf and swam toward the Huntington Beach Pier where a paddler waited to guide him through the race. But, his paddler followed the wrong swimmer, and Morgan floundered alone as the others continued southward.

For John Morgan, first came the screams from his wife, then the silence, which now haunts their home, shorn of the "angel" who filled their life with joy. "Our baby is dead!" Rosa Morgan, 40, screamed at him as he lay on a hallway floor, he said. That same afternoon, the 52-year-old motorcycle magazine freelance writer was arrested on suspicion of having killed his 3-year-old daughter.

Five years ago, John Morgan had a kind of identity crisis. It wasn't that he turned to drink or left Connie, his wife of 34 years. He didn't start gambling. Yet what else could you call it? For a practical, workaholic sort, a man past 50, to throw over a tidy grocery business, which had carried him for three decades, and turn to . . . carriage building? Sometimes Morgan can hardly believe it himself.

John Morgan was one of Argentina's top swimmers in 1980 when his run of success suddenly ended. A set of stretching bands he was working out with snapped and sent pieces of metal springs flying into his eyes. Morgan lost his vision and was unable to swim again for two years. He spent much of that time in and out of the operating room.

Walk down the dark, crumbling corridors of Mosfilm Studios and, for a moment, you might think you've entered Frankenstein's castle. The music filling the air would certainly underscore that feeling. Behind heavily guarded studio doors, the Moscow Symphony Orchestra has been recording music from the 1944 Boris Karloff horror film "House of Frankenstein."

John F. Morgan is working hard to bring the horse-and-buggy days back to Ventura County. Morgan, who started restoring old stagecoaches and other horse-drawn vehicles 15 years ago as a hobby, now makes his living at it. Not only does he scour the country looking for old buggies and other relics from the past to polish up, he manufactures his own line of horse-drawn Petaluma carts for a clientele that includes actors Robert Wagner and Richard Widmark.
