Max Ataka loves insects. All kinds, from the beetles on his T-shirt to the Anise swallowtail butterfly perched on the back of his hand. The 12-year-old loves the colors, the weird behaviors, the fact that he can actually handle them. "When I was a baby, my first insect was a grasshopper," he said, recalling the memory as if it were from a distant era. Max is the youngest member of the Lorquin Entomological Society, an organization of Southern Californians who prefer six legs to four (or two)

They lured him with Clippers tickets and the promise of money for college. The deal required Eric Antuche to give up years of Saturday mornings. But it all paid off for the graduate of Verbum Dei High School in Watts. His family drove him up to Humboldt State University last weekend, where he'll begin his freshman year classes Monday. He owes the opportunity to Neighborhood Youth Achievers and a handful of generous donors. Neighborhood Youth Achievers is one of those grass-roots groups we don't hear much about.

Authorities declared the death of a prominent L.A. attorney shot in the head outside his Rolling Hills Estates home a homicide and said they were now scrutinizing his casework for potential clues. Detectives have already interviewed Jeffrey Tidus' family and business partners at Baute & Tidus, a downtown Los Angeles law firm specializing in civil litigation, to help them identify any cases or incidents that could have spurred conflict. Los Angeles County sheriff's Lt. Dave Dolson said that the motive for the Monday evening shooting remained unclear and that his investigators had not ruled out anything from a targeted killing to an unplanned confrontation.

The rescue occurred earlier this month, when the 4-year-old Australian shepherd and his owner, Linda Fitton, 34, were taking a walk near one of Rolling Hills Estates' many horse trails at nightfall.

The investigation into the fatal shooting of a prominent Los Angeles attorney outside his Rolling Hills Estates home took a new twist Wednesday as Los Angeles County sheriff's detectives said they did not find a weapon at the scene. The revelation heightens suspicions over Jeffrey Tidus' death as detectives try to determine whether the litigator was the victim of a homicide or self-inflicted gunshot wound. "We have not located the weapon used, but we haven't ruled it a homicide," said Lt. David Dolson.

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the New International Version of the Bible, the publishing house Zondervan is inviting people across the country to copy a verse in their own hand.

Norwegian expatriates who fought their homeland over the rights to a soccer field in Rolling Hills Estates celebrated victory Saturday with a dinner of torsk, or poached cod in dill and butter sauce. In January, U.S. District Judge Harry L. Hupp ruled that Nansen Field, an 8.7-acre soccer field, belongs to the Seamen of Norway Inc., a Los Angeles-based nonprofit group. But the Seamen ran up about $250,000 in legal fees fighting Norway.

Re "Palin talks tough on Russia, Iran," Sept. 12 Has The Times become the apologist for the McCain-Palin ticket? I found the Sarah Palin interview with Charlie Gibson to be alarming at best, even frightening. Do we really want an everyday "hockey mom" as leader of the free world? Do we want someone who believes that decisiveness without prior thought is a good thing? I think we've had enough of that over the last eight years. I want an elitist in office, someone who seems smarter than average!

If good fences make good neighbors, what do bad fences make? Inmates -- at least in Rolling Hills Estates. That's what Francisco Linares found out this week, when an L.A. County Superior Court judge sentenced him to six months in jail. His crime? Erecting a 180-foot-long fence while building his dream home in the horsy hills of the Palos Verdes Peninsula. Never mind Paris Hilton and her 45-day sentence for serial probation busting.
