There are big backyards, and there are humongous backyards. For those who fancy the latter for hiking, riding mountain bikes and horses, or just watching golden eagles and prairie falcons take off and land, Horsethief Canyon Ranch may be the ticket. The west Riverside County neighborhood abuts the ultimate local wilderness address: the 460,000-acre Cleveland National Forest.

Art and architecture blend seamlessly in this contemporary Laguna Beach home in the private community of Irvine Cove. A heavily detailed three-quarter-inch layer of French limestone encloses the steel-framed structure, creating the illusion that it's one, monolithic column of limestone. On both sides of the main entry, curved glass panels are accented with rivets. A bridge leading from the entrance to the great room crosses over the atrium. Inside the gallery-styled great room, an art wall features a sculptured circular black brick fireplace with stainless steel trim.

Despite the NBA player lockout, new Lakers head coach Mike Brown is busy setting up shop at the office and at home. Brown and his wife, Carolyn, closed a $3-million deal last month for a house in a gated Anaheim Hills community. That will be quite a drive to Staples Center and even a longer one to the Lakers offices and training center in El Segundo. Perhaps Kobe Bryant can swing by to pick him up on his way from Newport Coast. Although Brown declined to comment on the purchase, a Laker spokesman said the coach wanted his children to attend a high school near his new house, so he was willing to make the long commute.

In 1960, Huntington Beach had more than one oil well for every three people. The Red Car took passengers along the coast from Long Beach to Newport Beach. A salt-water pool was the big attraction at the Huntington Beach pier. At Huntington Beach High School, the Oilers were having their best season in many years. They were off to a 5-0 start and would go on to post a 6-2-1 record. In 1989, there still are a few oil wells pumping away in Huntington Beach.
