At nightfall, this picturesque town near the meeting of the Cascade and Sierra Nevada mountains gets people choked up, but not with emotion. The culprit is wood stoves. After work, folks like to build a nice, cozy fire. On Main Street the smoke is thick enough to suggest an antique steel mill lurking around some corner. The roads are a more immediate danger than air quality. The rate of auto fatalities here in sparsely populated Lassen County is almost triple the statewide average.

Two blocked punts in the last 10 minutes resulted in a safety and a touchdown for Los Angeles and a 30-21 win over Wilson in a nonconference game. After Wesley Watson blocked a punt, Buster Bradley recovered the loose ball for the Mules but was tackled by Los Angeles linebacker Dipo Akinmurela in the end zone for a safety. On its next possession, Wilson tried another punt, which was blocked by Randy Simmons and recovered by Travon Kitchen for a touchdown.

Like any resale, condo conversions don't come with the same construction warranty protection most new homes have. Still, statewide provisions offer some consumer protection. The California Department of Real Estate requires converters to document any known defects in a written statement. In addition, although not required, developers are asked to submit inspection and structural reports before receiving a public report -- a green light for moving ahead -- from the department.

Deaths in Michigan and Canada. Bans in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Angry public hearings in Florida. Yes, 1992 has been tough on bungee jumping. The sort-of sport, once expected to go the way of mood rings and pet rocks, instead bounced from fad to growth industry (at $35 to $80 a jump). A 1991 death, the first in the United States, barely bothered business; bungee attracted daredevil wanna-bes, the curious and those with something to prove or nothing to lose.

The prospect of a $1,000 repair bill was pretty unpleasant for Susan Silverman when the air conditioning broke in her recently purchased Woodland Hills townhouse. It was in the midst of a heat wave, and Silverman could think of other ways she would rather spend her money. Suddenly, it dawned on her that she didn't have to pay for the repair after all. The seller of her townhouse had paid for a one-year warranty--and Silverman was covered.

In "Orinoco," over-the-hill showgirls Fifi and Mina, adrift on a tramp steamer on an exotic South American river, can't understand the sudden and mysterious disappearance of their captain and crew. They awake to an empty ship, stare out at the passing lush jungle and talk, cavort, yell, even dance. No one is at the helm. Where is the boat taking them? As you might have surmised, the journey is symbolic, the mood dreamlike, the tone non-realistic.

Dondre Bausley grew up in Southwest Los Angeles watching Charles White and Marcus Allen rush to Heisman trophies by way of Student Body Right and Left--the staple of the USC offense during the Trojan glory years. "I just fell in love with that kind of offense," said Bausley, who plays tailback for Valley College. "It seemed like all you needed was the ability to move a little bit through the hole." Bausley, a 5-11, 190-pound sophomore, has some of that ability.
