Scott Sterling, the 32-year-old son of Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling, died as a result of a pulmonary embolism and  "narcotic medication intake" in what Los Angeles County coroner's officials classified as an accidental death, authorities said Monday. Sterling was found dead in his apartment on Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu on New Year's night. Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department officials quickly determined his death did not involve foul play but appeared to involve some type of drug overdose.

Here in the land of cars, parking spaces are scarce and sought-after. Nowhere is that more true than in the popular communities along the coast, where tension is common between the visitors drawn to the beach and the residents who live there. Malibu, in particular, is notorious as a place where some locals obscure public accessways to the beach and put up fake "No Parking" signs and orange traffic cones curbside to discourage visitors from parking. And Malibu's latest move is unlikely to dispel the "no trespassers" vibe that sometimes emanates from its shores: Volunteers are being empowered to hand out parking tickets with fines of $50 to $75 attached.

Al Martinez's June 13 column calls Eris the goddess of strife and that's OK because strife is synonymous with discord. However, he leaves out the key word "mischief." My Greek mythology book called Eris the goddess of mischief and discord. This newfound knowledge when I was a teenager was a glorious revelation. Mischief adds a little levity to the title--her mischievousness led to discord (look it up). Malibu will be much better off with Eris as a logo. Dolphins are much overused and the overexposure isn't good for them.

Scottie Pippen has filed a countersuit against a Malibu man who alleged the former NBA All-Star assaulted him at a restaurant last year. Camran Shafighi filed a $4-million lawsuit against Pippen, accusing him of a “brutal and unjustified physical attack" that allegedly occurred outside upscale Nobu restaurant after Shafighi had sought a picture with the former Chicago Bull. But in a cross-complaint filed earlier this month, Pippen's lawyer Mark J. Geragos alleged Shafighi cursed at Pippen using racial slurs, spat on him and his children and said, “I'm going to kill you.” The cross-complaint also alleges that Shafighi was “extremely aggressive and noticeably intoxicated” and calls for unspecified damages “according to proof.” Reached Tuesday, Shafighi's attorney, Kathryn Lee Boyd, said she had no comment on the cross-complaint “at this time.” In August, about a month after Shafighi filed his complaint, the Los Angeles County district attorney's office announced Pippen would not face assault charges after prosecutors determined there was insufficient evidence to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Pippen was guilty of committing a crime.

Gleason that was destroyed last summer by the devastating Station fire. But when residents of the beachfront city realized that the camp would be staffed by prison inmates, they began organizing to stop it. They succeeded Wednesday, when Fire Chief P. Michael Freeman announced that he would look elsewhere. FOR THE RECORD: Malibu: A Jan. 22 editorial said that residents of the city of Malibu blocked a proposed fire station staffed by prison inmates.

" Uncoupling papers will no doubt eventually reveal who gets the John Lautner-designed home, which is set on a secluded acre of land and surrounded by tropical landscaping. The forward-thinking architect designed such structures as the octagonal Chemosphere house in Los Angeles and the poured-concrete Elrod Residence in Palm Springs.
