For 40 slow miles, a Mexican Federal patrolman paces a milelong string of four-wheel drives, RVs and packed family four-doors until they reach the concrete arches of this fishing community 230 miles southeast of San Diego. Two young men stop each car and ask for $10 donations to help the town deal with the influx. And although many opt to give a few dollars, the city can't deal with the influx. Visitors who ask innocently about possible hotel vacancies are laughed at.

A group of about 40 Pepperdine fraternity members got together Saturday and went to church in Ventura, not to attend a service, but to volunteer their services as sanders, painters and tree trimmers. Pledges, active members and alumni from the Lambda Omega Sigma chapter of the national Psi Upsilon fraternity spent six hours doing handyman work at Community Presbyterian Church on Poli Street as part of a weekend retreat.
TRAVEL

While reading Dan Neil's Airstream camping article ["Hi-Yo, Silver," Aug. 31], I was reminded of a conversation I had with my wife about a return trip to San Felipe, Mexico, where we had camped on the beach. When I asked whether she wanted to go again, she said, "Well, if you will do the shopping, pack the car, set up the camp, do the cooking, clean the dishes, unpack the car and do the laundry when we get home, I will go." Did we go? No. What most men may not realize is that when a woman has to do more work on a camping trip than she would at home, it's no vacation -- no matter how aerodynamic the vehicles.

I've always believed that William Burroughs was bad for rock 'n' roll. Too many self-proclaimed heroin "dabblers" think they won't die because Burroughs didn't. That old fool just got lucky. . . . James Carter didn't. The Hollywood scene is still mourning the loss of the Dragonfly bar-back who apparently OD'd two weeks ago. Take a cue from tattoo artist Mark Mahoney and trade in old vices for a Red Bull. It's got twice the kick, and you get to live.

Los Angeles Yacht Club is the first West Coast club to adopt the International Measurement System (IMS), formerly Measurement Handicap System, for its offshore racing series, the opener of which is the race around Catalina Island today. An IMS class will be added to this year's Whitney series, along with the International Offshore Rule (IOR) measurement system.

An off-road racer was believed to be among four passengers presumed dead after a small plane crashed off the Orange County coast over the weekend. Jason Baldwin of Laguna Beach and three others were returning from a racing competition in Baja California when their Cessna 210 plunged into the Pacific on Saturday afternoon about three miles off Dana Point, the U.S. Coast Guard said Sunday. Nearby pleasure boaters had watched the plane spin out of control.

Though hampered by swift currents and a troublesome anchor line, deep-sea divers Tuesday found four bodies inside the small plane that crashed over the weekend off Dana Point, authorities said. The search team, assisted by a robot, reached the wreckage of the Cessna 210 about 3 p.m. after currents swept one diver hundreds of yards from the crash site and another became tangled in an anchor line. Both had to be placed in a decompression chamber, delaying the recovery effort for several hours.

The gig: Decades before Los Angeles had a Taco Bell, La Salsa or Baja Fresh restaurant on every corner, there was a modest taco stand in Studio City called Poquito Mas. The name means "a little bit more," and that's been McCarney's cautious growth philosophy since he opened his first restaurant in 1984. "Poquito" at a time: Poquito Mas turned 25 in October, and in that span, the chain has "slowly, methodically" added nine more locations in the Los Angeles area, from Rolling Hills to Chatsworth and the Sunset Strip to the Warner Bros.

When missionary Linda Mendez was 10 months old, her grandmother noticed that her legs went out from under her whenever the toddler tried to take her first tentative baby steps. At her grandmother's urging, Mendez's parents took her to Orthopaedic Hospital in downtown Los Angeles, where doctors identified a congenital hip problem. Even though the family could not afford the $10,000 in medical costs, doctors still treated Linda, strapping braces on her legs.
REAL ESTATE

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and his wife, Maria Shriver, have sold three residential properties in their Pacific Palisades compound, originally listed a year ago at close to $18 million for the entire 5.3 acres. The fourth and final parcel is in escrow. The couple hasn't lived on the property since they bought a new home in a gated Brentwood community for about $11.9 million in 2002. Although offered as a compound, the four parcels also were marketed as three separate homes.
