A vegan diet: That's what Santa Monica College track coach Joshua Garrett credits for helping him traverse the famed Pacific Crest Trail and possibly setting a record doing it. The rugged 2,650-mile trail runs from the border of Mexico to Canada, crossing some of the most scenic wilderness in the world. It's a once-in-a-lifetime accomplishment for hikers, many of whom cover the distance in chunks over the course of several years. And then there are endurance athletes such as Garrett, 30, of Pacific Palisades, who tackled it all at once.

BART announced late Thursday an end to a four-day strike that had ground to a halt the Bay Area transit agency's trains. Officials made the announcement at a press conference just before 11 p.m., saying negotiations with striking unions will continue and that service will begin again Friday afternoon. The 104-mile rail system shut down Monday, leaving 400,000 weekday riders scrambling for transportation. The biggest sticking point is money. The unions initially had asked for a 5% raise per year for three years, with inflation protection.

Jim McGinn, a TV writer and producer, moved into his Pacific Palisades home on July 1, 1967. Three days later, the world, or so it seemed, streamed by the neighborhood newbie's front door. "That's when we found out about the parade," McGinn said. Pacific Palisades' two-hour Fourth of July procession - replete with bands, dogs wearing flag bandannas and kids riding bunting-bedecked bikes - is the centerpiece of the coastal enclave's rapturous celebration of Independence Day. "It is not the Rose Bowl Parade, with million-dollar floats coming down the street, but it is one of the best hometown parades you're going to see," said Robert Weber, 45, president of the Palisades Americanism Parade Assn., the organizing committee.
