Action sports and high fashion may not seem like the most likely of companions, but in the past decade designers have done more than dip a toe into surf culture; they have embraced the easygoing, sun-drenched lifestyle common to Southern California and found plenty of inspiration. The fashion industry's love affair with surfing became most apparent about 11 years ago, when Karl Lagerfeld sent models clutching Chanel-logoed surfboards down the runway as they modeled clothes for spring 2003.

The hunt is on in San Francisco for vandals who have now tipped over four Smart cars over the past 48 hours. Three of the pint-sized cars were discovered upended late Monday or early Sunday. A fourth was found on its side later Monday morning. The vandals -- described by a witness to one car-tipping incident as a group of eight people wearing hooded sweatshirts -- remain at large, with little more for police investigators to go on. PHOTOS: Smart car tipping spree "All we have right now are multiple suspects wearing black hooded sweatshirts," San Francisco police Officer Gordon Shyy told KGO-TV.

Some girls choose soccer or cheerleading. Ivy Wolk chose roller derby. "This is it, this is for me," the petite, wide-eyed 9-year-old said to her mom the first time she saw the Los Angeles Derby Dolls hit the track, and one another, two years ago. Split lips, black eyes, rink rash and bruises are trophies here. "It's not child abuse, it's derby," she once told her mother, who made sure she alerted her daughter's pediatrician about the girl's newfound love for the sport. "There have literally been days where I have been like, 'I must be crazy.' But she just picks herself up and gets back out there," said her mother, Tracy Wolk.

Measles is a contagious childhood disease. Also called rubeola, it's caused by a virus. An infected person is contagious several days before the rash appears and remains so until the rash is gone. The rash, which shows up about four days after the onset of cold-like symptoms, usually starts on the face, and spreads to the entire body. It starts to fade within several days. Measles is rarely serious, but in a small number of cases can lead to brain damage or death. Data on measles in the U.S.

Officials probing the shooting deaths of three people believe they may be linked to a pair of California teen-agers arrested in Oregon, and they fear there may be more victims. The Yolo County Sheriff's Department reported late Monday the discovery of two bodies in Dunnigan Slough, about 15 miles northwest of Sacramento. Both victims had been shot to death, said Sheriff's Lt. Jerry Shadinger. Throughout the day Tuesday, authorities hunted for a possible third body, but none was found.

Off WE GO TO ANOTHER soccer game, I and several of the star players, wiggly as "Soul Train" dancers. A sorority of highly trained soccer talent, ready to take on the world and drink boxed drinks. "I have a dent in my head," the little girl says from the back seat. "I have a dent in my head too," Marisa says. They are talking about their hair, I think, though I'm not exactly willing to pry.

Welland Rudd isn't a typical American. He's never eaten Thanksgiving turkey or watched fireworks on the Fourth of July. At 52, he has yet to set foot on U.S. soil. Rudd isn't a typical Russian, either. Although he speaks the language fluently and has lived his whole life in Moscow, he cuts an unusual figure here. What sets him apart is the cafe-au-lait color of his skin.

Lower Oconee Community Hospital in southern Georgia closed its doors this month, eliminating 25 hospital beds and up to 100 hospital jobs. This was the fourth Georgia hospital to fold in two years and the eighth rural hospital in the state to close since 2000. Although Lower Oconee's shutdown may not have registered much media coverage, those in search of medical attention in Glenwood, Ga., should be mindful that the closest hospital is now 30 miles away. As reference, Santa Ana is 30 miles from Los Angeles.

TEHRAN - As world powers in Geneva negotiate the future of Iran's nuclear development program, Islamist hard-liners here continue to warn of a deceitful, perfidious West scheming to enfeeble the Islamic Republic. Yet in the trendy, smoke-filled cafes of this busy capital city, ritualistic denunciations of the United States are as passe as instant coffee among the mostly young, jeans-clad set. "In art, in fashion, in cinema and in our daily lifestyle, we copycat American culture," said Sarah, proprietor of a cozy cafe in the basement of a high-rise in northwest Tehran.

Oscar-winning screenwriter Jim Rash ("The Descendants") hosts Sundance Channel's series "The Writers' Room," a chatfest with scripters of such hit TV shows as "Game of Thrones," whose staff sits down with Rash on Monday. Rash also plays the energetic Dean Pelton on NBC's "Community," which has been picked up for a fifth season. How did "The Writers' Room" come about? It was a creation with Sundance in partnership with Entertainment Weekly, and they came to me wondering if I'd be interested in hosting a show that was an open panel discussion about the act of writing and particularly the inner workings of a writing staff on popular television shows.

When he watches a NASCAR race on television, Greg Scott feels his heart sink if smoke suddenly billows from the cars of Kyle Busch, Matt Kenseth, Denny Hamlin or some other Toyota drivers. The smoke usually means one of Toyota's engines blew up from the enormous stress placed on the power plants. "I take it hard," Scott says. "I don't feel good at all. " That's because Scott helps build the motors at Toyota's engine plant in Costa Mesa. But when his drivers win "it's exhilarating," said Scott, a 16-year veteran of Toyota Racing Development.

Just two days into filming "The Way, Way Back," the delicate balance that first-time directors Nat Faxon and Jim Rash had carefully planned was already crumbling. Rain had forced them to change the schedule, pushing up the shooting of an indoor scene that was one of the very few in the movie in which both of them also had to act at the same time. The two knew the moment would come but had hoped to have much more experience directing before having to call the shots while in character.

Readers flooded me with emails over the weekend; they couldn't say enough about the new indie "The Way, Way Back. " So I couldn't resist saying a bit more too. Don't miss one of this summer's pure pleasures. Written and directed by Nat Faxon and Jim Rash, the film is full of fun, family insights and just enough of a burn to keep things interesting. Its terrific acting ensemble includes Steve Carell, Toni Collette and a deliciously naughty Allison Janney. But go for the heart - Sam Rockwell as Owen, the cool dude who runs the local kid-magnet, a water park.

Al Greenwood, known to Southern Californians as "the Bedspread King," has died. He was 93. Greenwood, a longtime Long Beach resident, died of congestive heart failure Wednesday night at his daughter's and son-in-law's home in Seal Beach. A Massachusetts native who made his way west during the Great Depression, Greenwood became known in his later years for his kitschy late-night TV advertisements.

Modern-day desperadoes have taken a page from the exploits of train and bank robber Jesse James, robbing Los Angeles County post offices at an alarming rate--13 in the last 2 1/2 months, federal postal inspectors said Tuesday. Officials, who are offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to arrests and convictions, are at a loss to explain the sudden rash of post office heists. "We just really don't know," Postal Inspector Terry Fail said.

To begin talking about the new indie film "The Way, Way Back," I want to go way, way back. Praise for the movie's excellent cast, anchored by Sam Rockwell, Toni Collette, Steve Carell, Allison Janney and teenage rock Liam James, will come later. As good as the actors are, we must begin with the originality of the screenplay by Nat Faxon and Jim Rash. The writers, who also co-direct and have small roles in the film, take a fairly straightforward story of coming of age in a time of divorce, with all the frictions that arise as kids find themselves dealing with mom and dad's new loves, but they make it feel fresh.
