It is not a response Justin Rudd expects from a would-be Miss America. But as he coaches Miss Nevada in his Long Beach living room, asking her mock pageant questions about cosmetic surgery and her diet of chicken fingers and fries, he is unfazed by this potential misstep: "What," Rudd asks Crystal Wosik, "do you dislike most about yourself?" Miss Nevada does not pause. "My back fat." Rudd gives no grimace. "And my nose," she goes on. Rudd doesn't blink.

Hey, beauty pageant contestants. We know you can walk the walk, but can you talk the talk? If your biggest flaw is an inability to answer those heady questions about world peace and public health, you may want to consult with Justin Rudd--a pageant enthusiast who steadfastly prepares hundreds of contestants, coaches and judges for the grueling interview phase, which can sometimes count for 50% of an overall score.

The Port of Long Beach has received an award from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for promoting clean air and water, despite recent criticisms of the port by clean-air activists. The port is one of 37 "environmental heroes" named this week in EPA Region 9, which encompasses the Southwest. The fast-growing ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles together constitute the single-largest air polluter in the Los Angeles region. Long Beach is the nation's second-busiest seaport, after Los Angeles.

JUSTIN RUDD did not set out to become Long Beach's Easter weekend activities maven. It just turned out that way. "I just love Easter," Rudd says. "And I love celebrating it with two- and four-legged creatures." Southern Californians' celebrations of Easter are as varied as the population itself.

Now really. Amid the holiday madness this week, you're expected to scrub the house from top to bottom (or maybe just the guest room), crawl down the 405 to pick up your in-laws at the airport, shop for that book on feng shui and a Beanie Baby or the nearest equivalent, and then cook enough yams to feed the 82nd Airborne Division? Please.
