All your exes live in Texas. So you won't take the job there. But the man of your dreams is in Ely, Nev., just off Route 50--"The Loneliest Road in America." That's where you should go to work. But wait. If you stay here (even though you're not sure you like the city), you could make partner in a year or so. Then again, you really love San Francisco. Hiking on weekends, near the water, great road trips, cool people . . . maybe you should just move there and then look for a job.

Less than three weeks after basketball superstar Magic Johnson shocked the world by announcing he had contracted the virus that causes AIDS, the specter of the disease has hit the rock-music community. Even before the death Sunday of Queen lead singer Freddie Mercury, however, music figures were reassessing their lifestyles in a field that long took pride in the slogan "sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll."

In a city that seems to have no seasons, summer might be expected to pass on by like every other part of the year--a few degrees hotter, perhaps, but otherwise just another uneventful stretch of time. Instead, the onset of summer--which starts today--triggers a multitude of programmed responses in Angelenos that simply do not compute in any other part of the year. Natives flee, replaced by strangers who cannot fathom why anyone would ever want to leave.

Jose Albeiro Espinosa spent more than two years in a trance killing people in Medellin. He shot them from bicycles, motorcycles and cars. He killed them as a gang member and hired assassin. "We were blind," he recalls, "on cocaine, pills or marijuana, without thought or compassion. We would kill one, two, three, four people and then realize the next day what we had done. Then we would keep killing, because we knew someone was going to come for revenge."

The drought has come to Shangri-La--or, at least, to Hugh Hefner's version of it. Playboy Mansion groundskeepers are throttling back on the 25,000 gallons a day that have made Hefner's Holmby Hills estate one of the most well-watered residences in a city where the average homeowner consumes around 400 gallons a day. They've installed the first low-flow toilet--and now at night they are going to turn off the waterfalls.

Once, before congressional hearings, newspaper headlines and the word gangsta overwhelmed it, rap music was a world in which Puma tennis shoes with colorful fat shoelaces, sweat suits, breakdancing battles in the street and boom boxes were more important than posing with guns and drinking malt liquor. It was fun.

When almost 72% of this city's voters passed a $21-million bond issue to preserve open space for parkland, they reaffirmed a stance toward controlled growth that has been growing in the historic community since the early 1970s. But Tuesday's special election did more than solidify longtime sentiments to substitute land preservation for land development. City officials agreed that people were also voting to safeguard a lifestyle they believe is unique within Orange County.

He clocks in punctually each day a bit before noon, bearing the tools of his trade. A fishing pole is in one hand, an old scuffed tackle box in the other. He sports a plaid flannel shirt, baggy blue jeans and a dirt-smudged, canvas hat with a thin twine of dock rope stitched to the brim and gold portholes on the sides. Gene Peach has arrived.

A blue tattoo that reads "White Pride" etched along Scott Toglin's neckline once defined the person he was, but now it only reminds him of the life he wants to leave behind. Toglin, 23, said he joined a skinhead gang during his teens but has since been in search of a different kind of life. Through a program sponsored by the Orange County Probation Department and the Beckman Laser Institute at UCI and championed by Superior Court Judge David O.

Warning: Living in Orange County may be hazardous to your health. So says Dr. Barbara Best North of Laguna Niguel's Healthworks Medical Group. It's not just the often-brownish air, or the noise level, or the stresses of crowded freeways and hefty mortgage payments, she says.
