When you get dumped, not only do you lose the person you loved, you also lose the places where that love played out. Spots that once welcomed you become enemy territory - collateral damage that takes years to repair. I met Nicky in 2005 when she was a sophomore at Pepperdine, triple-majoring in international relations, German and success. I was a budding F. Scott Fitzgerald shelving books at a library in Temple City. Because of her ambitious schedule, I made the 100-mile round trip to Malibu every weekend in my old Chevy.

Construction is underway on the connector roads that link Newport Boulevard with Coast Highway, known as the Arches Interchange. The work will be completed over the next 18 months. During the project, the ramp connecting the southeast lanes of Coast Highway to southbound Newport Boulevard will be closed. Traffic will be detoured onto Balboa Boulevard. In addition to repairing the interchange ramps, the bridge over the Newport Channel will be rebuilt.

I'm saddened that two people had to die for the issue of bicycle safety to come to light (Sept. 14). But it's not restricted to the Pacific Coast Highway. As a rider who's commuted regularly between Hollywood and Santa Monica for eight years, I can tell you there is no safe road for bicyclists given the numerous construction sites throughout Los Angeles. L.A. should be a model city for bicycle commuting: We have perfect weather, wide boulevards and lots of land, but it's more dangerous here for bicyclists than in most East Coast cities.

Officers spotted the stolen vehicle about 7 p.m. at Pacific Coast Highway and Magnolia Avenue, Long Beach police spokeswoman Nancy Pratt said in an email. The driver refused to pull over and fled westbound on PCH. He attempted to get on the southbound 103 but lost control. The passenger died at the scene, while the driver fled on foot and was taken into custody a short distance away.

On weekday mornings and on beach days, a torrent of traffic from the San Fernando Valley pours through the Malibu canyons, emptying onto Pacific Coast Highway. At such times, the locals speak wistfully of tollbooths. They long for a guard and a gate, strategically placed at each through-road intersection with PCH to discourage, or even staunch, the flow of cars.
