Not long ago, I read an article about how some men stay in shape, and one guy said his tactic was to hit the gym any time he could and take whatever class was on tap. That speaks to the appeal of classes -- a defined start and end time with a leader to put you through your paces, no aimless wandering around the gym waiting for equipment, plus the camaraderie of exercising with a group. And going to class regularly can be important. Besides the obvious physical benefits, studies such as one recently published in the Journal of Comparative Neurology suggest that inactivity affects the structure and function of the brain and contributes to an increased risk of cardiovascular disease.

Ten years ago, it would have been difficult to find more than a few brands of mezcal around town. Now most wine shops that also sell liquor have at least a few of the best-known labels. And some have gone deep into the subject with dozens of labels and expressions of mezcal. Here's where to start your education and, in some cases, get an advanced degree in this fascinating spirit.

At the new version of the Jamaica Bay Inn, Marina del Rey gets what it has needed for a long while: an on-the-water, upscale hotel that doesn’t take itself too seriously. Call it barefoot luxury. The Jamaica Bay Inn sits at the intersection of Palawan Way and Admiralty Way, along the marina’s tranquil Mother’s Beach, known for its gentle waves. The Pacific Ocean and the Venice  fishing pier are a short walk away. More than 16 months ago, the hotel closed for an extensive renovation that expanded it  to 111 rooms and added marina-view suites and a 150-seat indoor/outdoor restaurant called Vu that serves breakfast, lunch and eclectic dinners.

A 70-foot powerboat anchored just south of Marina del Rey ran aground early Thursday. Officials said the captain of the Angelique awoke about 4:30 a.m. to the sound of the boat dragging its anchor. Attempts to start the vessel's engines were unsuccessful, and before rescue boats could arrive, the boat ran aground in heavy seas. Los Angeles County lifeguards and sheriff's deputies took three people and three dogs from the Angelique onto the rescue boat. No one was injured.

On a recent weekday morning, a Starline tour bus swung open its doors at Fisherman's Village in Marina del Rey, and Australian tourists Laura Ross and Kate Lund surveyed the scene. The faux maritime shopping center - with eateries and gift shops built around a fake lighthouse - was mostly empty. Many of the trinket shops were barren, their windows dusty, the walls ripped out. The ocean air had long ago turned vibrant red, yellow and turquoise paint to pastels on the dilapidated wooden buildings.

Join Times staff writer Matt Stevens at 9 a.m. Thursday for a discussion about boat owners in Marina del Rey who are resisting plans for the first extensive pollution cleanup in the area's history. On Thursday, the Los Angeles Regional Water Quality Control Board is scheduled to consider changes that would force boaters to strip copper paint from the bottom of their vessels and replace it with a less toxic alternative. Almost all of the marina's more than 4,500 boats have bottoms covered in copper paint . Officials estimate that paint stripping will cost $6,000 for a 40-foot boat, and that isn't sitting well with the marina's boaters.

Plans for the first extensive pollution cleanup in Marina del Rey history have sparked a revolt by boat owners at the tony harbor that could echo along the length of the California coast. The Los Angeles Regional Water Quality Control Board on Thursday will consider rules that would force boaters to strip copper paint from the bottoms of their boats and replace it with a less toxic alternative. To clean copper already in the water, the plan also calls for the county to spend at least $147 million dredging the nearly 50-year-old marina, the nation's largest manmade recreational boating harbor.

To the thieves, it was just a bicycle - an electric-powered, orange-colored bike  they took from a Marina del Rey condominium complex. But what the two men stole was the joy that 12-year-old Mia Timbrello felt when she rode the three-wheeled bicycle that was given to her last April by the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Mia is nonverbal and severely autistic and has had a double organ transplant, her mother, Yolanda Rangel, told KTLA-TV Channel 5 . “Whenever she was able to ride the bike, her face lit up and she was obviously enjoying herself,” L.A.
