In the eons since Zeus permitted the sun god Helios to create the island of Rhodes (450 miles southeast of Athens in the aqua waters of the Aegean Sea), it's been one damned thing after another for the citizens of this meteorological and botanical paradise: They've been enslaved at most, or exploited at least, by Phoenicians, Minoans, Achaians, Dorians, Persians, Macedonians, Romans, Saracens, Venetians, Genoans, Turks and Italians. Give or take.

Renaissance Cruises, a Fort Lauderdale, Fla.-based line with eight ships in Europe and the South Pacific, abruptly ceased operations Tuesday, leaving an estimated 2,000 passengers in ports, mostly in the Mediterranean. The company blamed its failure on a sudden drop in business after the Sept. 11 attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon and said it filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy status, which allows for reorganization.

It has no fingers, but a one-ton chunk of limestone hauled from the sea Sunday off the Greek island of Rhodes looked enough like a clenched fist to prompt excited government officials to speculate that divers had found a part of the Colossus of Rhodes--a fabled giant statue that was one of the seven wonders of the ancient world.

Among the Newport Harbor Art Museum's key criteria for choosing an architect to design its new home in Corona del Mar was that the person be an internationally recognized talent not represented by other major buildings in the Los Angeles area. After an 18-month examination of dozens of architects, the museum's search committee settled on Renzo Piano, a Paris-based Italian who was in Orange County last week for his first site visit.

Scott Ayakatubby brought it to the beach as a reminder of his brother, as a push when he needed one, as a final reason to keep moving forward when his 38-year-old body no longer wanted to. Ayakatubby had been carrying the memorial program given out at his older brother's recent funeral and pulled it from his backpack Sunday after winning the Hermosa Beach Open for the first time in his 19-year career.

The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force has released a draft recommendation that PSA tests no longer be used for routine screens for prostate cancer. What is PSA anyway? Prostate-specific antigen is an enzyme of a type called a protease; it cuts up other proteins. Scientists believe it helps liquefy semen, and it may help sperm find its way to an egg by digesting the mucus covering the cervix. When cancers develop in the prostate gland, levels of PSA can start to climb in the blood.

Legend has it that after the sun god Helios wed Rhodos, daughter of Poseidon, he was so overwhelmed by her beauty that he promised to create an island equally as lovely. The island of Rhodes has managed to retain much of its legendary beauty, in spite of a few Miami Beach-style hotels and its reputation as the most cosmopolitan resort in Greece. Rhodes' classic beauty rewards the sojourner afoot: mountaintop monasteries and traditional villages, a fantastic castle and a preserve for butterflies.
