The first time Joe Jennings and Rob Harris jumped out of an airplane they felt a rush so strong that when they landed, each plunked down his credit card to do it again. Little did they know where that first jump would take them. Jennings, 33, and Harris, 28, were the sky-surfing champions at the ESPN Extreme Games and held the 1994 world title before that. Sky surfing is free-fall sky-diving taken to the max.

Two North Hollywood men pleaded no contest Wednesday to robbing actor Harry Dean Stanton at his Mulholland Drive home. Jose Rivera, 18, and Martin Guerrero, 20, faced other charges that included carjacking and assault with a deadly weapon in connection with the home invasion robbery of Stanton, 69, in January. Those counts were dropped in exchange for the no-contest plea to robbery charges. Stanton, whose films include "Repo Man" and "Alien," was bound and pistol-whipped by robbers at his home.

It wasn't supposed to happen to Rob Harris. Not this way. Not to this expert sky diver who logged thousands of jumps, who was a world-champion sky surfer, who had parlayed that envelope-pushing sport into numerous commercials, who was scrupulous about safety. Harris wasn't supposed to die three days before his 29th birthday. It was a by-the-books jump for a soft-drink commercial, a maneuver he had done a number of times. A walk in the park.

Hollywood has come to the harbor. Warner Bros. Studios crews have converged upon Dana Point Harbor, where they are filming the feature film "The Perfect Storm" starring George Clooney, studio spokesman Rob Harris said. The movie is loosely based upon the Sebastian Junger book about a 1991 storm in which the fishing boat Andrea Gail sank in the Atlantic. The crews will be filming several miles off the coast until Saturday and aren't scheduled to do any shooting near land, he said.

Major League scouts came to watch pitcher Allan Hebert, but it was the bat of Cal State L.A. teammate Johnny Hilo that made a lasting impression. Hilo went three-for-five with three RBIs as the Golden Eagles defeated Cal State Dominguez Hills, 7-3, Thursday in a California Collegiate Athletic Assn. Conference game Thursday at Reeder Park. Hilo extended his hitting streak to 10 games with a leadoff home run in the third inning and another solo shot in the seventh.

The marvelously talented Brazilian pianist Eliane Elias returned Tuesday night for the start of what promises to be a bountiful week of contemporary jazz at the Catalina Bar and Grill in Hollywood. Her opening set--despite recurring problems with a sound system that seemed determined to eliminate synthesizer keyboardist Rob Harris and bassist Lincoln Goines from the band--bristled with the high energy and passion that are intrinsic to Elias' music. Among the more attractive pieces were "So Far, So Close" (the title track of a new album, scheduled for release later this month)

Pete Rose is one of the most polarizing figures in baseball. Just the mention of his name can spark a huge debate on whether or not baseball's all-time hits leader deserves his lifetime ban from the sport for allegedly betting on games. Topps baseball cards has joined the debate -- without even mentioning Rose's name. In fact, the company has joined the debate by not mentioning his name. Rob Harris of the Chicagoside website wrote that Rose -- and apparently only Rose -- is left out of a new feature on the back of the 2013 cards.

A speeding forest fire destroyed several houses near this Bavarian-theme tourist town Saturday after forcing workers to shut down the water plant. "Smoke is hanging in heavy and there's a lot of anxiety," said city administrator Mike Cecka, although the fire had turned away from the town itself. About 25 miles northeast, a fire that had burned across 86,000 acres of grass and pine trees was moving away from the lake resort town of Chelan, but a number of houses in the area remained evacuated.
