Ron Ross is nothing if not controversial. Critics of the innovative clothier say he berates suppliers, argues with customers and threatens former employees-turned-competitors with lawsuits. Fans, on the other hand, praise his unerring sense of style. Most importantly, loyal customers have traveled to his modest Tarzana store, a jumble of unrelated rooms, for nearly 20 years to shop for high-end designer-caliber merchandise.

It was about 3:45 p.m. Monday when Ron Ross told his wife to call 911. Outside their Angelino Heights home off Douglas Street and Calumet Avenue, a chaotic scene was unfolding. A geyser of water was shooting into the air, flooding the sidewalk. A postal truck lay on its side. And its driver, a petite woman who had been on the job only since May, was injured, bloodied and pinned underneath. And off to the side, according to witnesses, stood a 13-year-old boy who police later said was responsible for it all.

It was a really bad scene.

A geyser of water was shooting into the air, flooding the sidewalk. A postal truck lay on its side. And its driver, a petite woman who had only been on the job since May, was broken, bloodied and pinned underneath. And off to the side, according to witnesses, stood a 13-year-old boy who police later said was responsible for all of it. “It was like something from a movie,” said Rita Olivera Ross, the 32-year Angelino Heights resident who dialed 911. “There's this young Latina, and this truck is on top of her. It was a really bad scene.” It took about six residents to lift the truck and free the woman, who Ron Ross affectionately calls “Running Girl” because of how quickly she moves from house to house.

The return of the mini offers trend addicts an opportunity to pile on one more accessory: thigh-highs. These long socks--or short stockings, if you prefer--are are favorite of the grand dame of style, Madonna, who wore them to a recent society benefit. Made of cotton, wool or a cotton blend, thigh-highs cost $6 to $28. They stay up by means of an elasticized top or by long, dangly ties which are meant to be wrapped around, then knotted. Either way, they show plenty of thigh.

Los Angeles may not be known as outback country. But chukkas--durable, ankle-high boots originally created for hikers--are being worn by L.A. men whose daily treks are largely confined to studio back lots or Beverly Hills sidewalks. What prompted the boot-wearing boom? Some manufacturers credit TV shows such as "Northern Exposure" with popularizing rugged garb. Others say the boots telegraph wearers' sensitivity to environmental issues.

Question: What caused some of the different colors in glass that can be seen in collectible bottles?--L.B. Answer: A bottle's off color, which can make old bottles highly collectible, was caused by impurities in the sand that glassmakers used to fashion their products. As glassmakers became more sophisticated, the impurities were removed, resulting in clearer glass.

THE SHOW: "America's Funniest Home Videos," 8 p.m. Sundays, Channel 7. THE SETUP: People mail in videos of private goofs or a loved one's humiliation to gain laughs on national TV.

THE LOOK: America is wearing lots of cotton, lots of loose clothing, lots of pastel colors. You won't see much Spandex or black (few camcorders on Melrose).
