The playoffs are considered the "second season," but Friday's second-round game of the Southern California Regionals will be second nature for the Rancho Santiago and Riverside baseball teams. The Orange Empire Conference teams have already met four times this season, splitting the two games at each site. They also met last year in the first game of the double-elimination regional playoffs. "Is it deja vu or what?" Rancho Santiago Coach Don Sneddon said.

When a convicted rapist was recently charged with murdering 10 L.A. women, some longtime residents were reminded of a grisly case from the 1920s. On Feb. 2, 1928, Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies found a burlap bag containing a headless body in a La Puente ditch. A male teenager had been shot through the heart with a .22-caliber rifle.

Jesse James has definite ideas about fashion. He knows what he likes, and what he doesn't. The plaid shirt he's wearing buttoned up to the rim of his beefy neck--a shirt from the West Coast Choppers line that you can buy at Wal-Mart for $20--is something he likes. Of course he does: He designed it. He also likes the enzyme-washed, deconstructed T-shirts silk-screened with images of pistols and skulls that are hanging on racks in an office down the hall from his workshop in Long Beach.
