In East Hermosa, the waves don't crash outside your doorstep, but neither does the party crowd that descends upon Pier Avenue every weekend. Yes, this is still surfurbia -- just east of Pacific Coast Highway. What it's about Known as the "less expensive" section of Hermosa Beach, East Hermosa, the 12-block slice south of Artesia Boulevard and roughly north of Anita Street, offers peaceful streets and stunning views.

SOCHI, Russia - Aw, Canada. It's hard to work up any sort of serious dislike for those quaint neighbors living in America's attic, but this hockey thing is getting ridiculous. Twice during a 24-hour period at the appropriately named Bolshoy Ice Dome, the Canadian Olympic team has danced all over the United States, first the women, then the men, causing one nation to joyously scream and the other one to, well, absently shrug. FRAMEWORK: Best images from Sochi We just don't care about pucks as much, do we?

For many Orange County executives, 1991 was a year when their pay packages came under greater shareholder scrutiny and corporate boards were cautious in handing out cash bonuses and perks. It mirrored a trend statewide of keeping executive compensation in line with a company's financial performance. Of the top 100 county executives on the list of publicly traded companies, one-third of the officers saw their cash compensation remain unchanged or had it reduced.

SOCHI, Russia - Canada will have the opportunity to defend the gold medal it won four years ago at Vancouver, a chance it earned Friday with a thoroughly sound defensive effort that stifled a fast and prolific U.S. team in the Sochi Olympic hockey semifinals. A second-period goal by Jamie Benn, who wasn't invited to Canada's Olympic orientation camp last summer but played his way onto the team, held up as the difference in a 1-0 victory by Canada at the Bolshoy Ice Dome. Benn redirected a pass from defenseman Jay Bouwmeester past a helpless Jonathan Quick and Benn's teammates protected the lead with discipline and energy.

As a chief boatswain's mate yelled one of the most unusual orders ever heard aboard ship--"Release the whale!"--the California gray whale named J.J. was lowered gently into calm seas Tuesday two miles off the San Diego coast. The 19,200-pound, 31-foot-long mammal--the largest ever kept in captivity--initially began swimming back to San Diego.

Call it a movable laboratory, a testing ground of possession futbol . And Friday's petri dish, featuring the U.S. men's national soccer team, happened to be the Home Depot Center. Unfortunately, for the Americans, the dish imploded with some suspect defending in the second half against Costa Rica, a full-scale breakdown leading to defender Rodney Wallace's goal, a header, in the 65th minute, leading Costa Rica to a 1-0 win. And shortly after the lone goal, there was more imploding, in terms of temper, between the sides.

SACRAMENTO -- Southern California Edison Co. will pay the federal government $1.8 million to settle a lawsuit seeking damages from a 2007 wildfire that burned parts of the Sequoia National Forest. The lawsuit alleged that negligence by the Rosemead electric utility caused the blaze. QUIZ: Do U.S. corporations pay too little in taxes? "Poorly maintained hardware on a power distribution line owned by Edison caused an electrical fault, and molten material fell to the ground below, igniting dry vegetation," said a statement issued by Benjamin B. Wagner, U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of California in Sacramento.

SOCHI, Russia -- He came to these Olympics determined to stay his chilled-out, snowboarding self at the pressure-packed Winter Games and, in his own words, continue to “march to his own beat.” With that attitude and special flair, 20-year-old Sage Kotsenburg of Park City, Utah, marched off with the first gold medal of the 2014 Sochi Olympics in men's slopestyle on Saturday at Rosa Khutor Extreme Park. This marked the Olympic debut of one of the livelier extreme sports and Kotsenburg won it with an eye-popping first run in the final, earning 93.50 points.

American consumers are savings hundreds of dollars a year thanks to a natural gas boom that has pushed down energy costs. The average U.S. household already saves between $425 to $725 a year as technology such as hydraulic fracturing unlocks previously inaccessible stores of natural gas, according to a Boston Consulting Group report. Those savings -- which shoppers see in both lower utility bills and cheaper prices on goods -- could jump to $1,200 or more by 2020, the report said.

Denver is unstoppable. Baltimore is toast. San Diego chokes. So do Washington and the New York Giants. Detroit and Kansas City have finally turned the corner. It's so tempting to look at what happened in Week 1 of the NFL season and extrapolate the way the rest of the fall will unfold. We do it every year, forever forgetting that the snapshot we get in the first couple of weeks of the regular season is almost always deceiving. Let's look back at some of what we gathered from the first two weeks of the 2012 season, and how our initial impressions weren't always on target: •Watch out, single-season sack record.

CHICAGO - Juergen Klinsmann said there was no team better than the United States in the last month of the CONCACAF Gold Cup soccer tournament. The Americans showed their coach exactly why Sunday in the final. The U.S. didn't allow a single shot on goal and picked up the game's lone score on an opportunistic shot by midfielder Brek Shea in the 68th minute. The 1-0 victory over Panama gave the U.S. its fifth Gold Cup championship. "You want to win it in a way that you feel you deserve it," said Klinsmann, who watched the game from a Solder Field luxury suite while serving a suspension.

As a relative newcomer to Southern California, KCET programmer Stephen Kulczycki may be forgiven his glib observation that ". . . television has not organized the history of Los Angeles very well" ("Voyage of Discovery to L.A. Past," by Diane Haithman, May 9). Not so, however, for Haithman, who should have researched her subject more diligently before declaring KCET's "The Los Angeles History Project" the first TV series to focus on Southern California's past. Had they been around the local TV vineyards in the years 1964 through 1969, Kulczycki and Haithman would certainly have recalled the highly acclaimed and popular "Ralph Story's Los Angeles," a weekly series on KNXT, Channel 2. In its six years on the air, that venerable series--more than 250 half-hours--affectionately explored L.A.'s history in all its varying shades, poking into its lore and its legends, its movers and shakers and memorable eccentrics.

The Americans are making a habit of this 1-2 thing. Bridget Sloan edged teammate Rebecca Bross for the title at the world gymnastics championships Friday night at London, just as Nastia Liukin beat Shawn Johnson for the Olympic gold medal last summer in Beijing. And it couldn't have been closer, with Bross' fall on her final tumbling pass on floor, the last event, the difference. Sloan, the lone holdover from the U.S. team that won the silver medal in Beijing, finished with 57.825 points.

SANDY, Utah - Needing a win to move a big step closer to a berth in next summer's World Cup in Brazil, the U.S. rode a late goal by Jozy Altidore to a 1-0 victory over Honduras in a regional qualifier Tuesday before a sellout crowd at Rio Tinto Stadium. The win gave the U.S. (4-1-1) the maximum of nine points from its three June qualifying matches, leaving it atop the standings in the six-team tournament with four games to play. That guarantees the U.S. no worse than a two-point lead in the table, pending the result of Tuesday's late qualifier between second-place Costa Rica and Panama.
