José Enrique, chef-owner of José Enrique in San Juan, Puerto Rico, was just named one of Food & Wine magazine's Best New Chefs (along with Danny Bowien of Mission Chinese Food in New York, Justin Cogley of Aubergine in Carmel and our own Michael Voltaggio of ink in WeHo, among others). When's the last time you've seen a chef in Puerto Rico on such a list? I'm pretty sure the answer is never. And in my opinion, the award is richly deserved. After spending a few days in Puerto Rico in January, the touted new resort restaurants paled beside the vivid flavors, funk and sheer fun of José Enrique in the ragged neighborhood near the city's covered market on la Placita de Santurce.

For local trips, try Metrolink, which offers a $10 weekend day pass [Saturday or Sunday]. Angelenos might enjoy the antiques stores in Orange and the pier in San Clemente. There is more to see in San Juan Capistrano than the mission. In Riverside, the Mission Inn is definitely worth seeing. Metrolink, http://www.metrolinktrains.com . Susan Ostrowsky Corona del Mar

Some San Juan Elementary School parents believe their school has been "neglected" for too long for it to have more students foisted upon it. At a Capistrano Unified School Board meeting Monday night, two parents asked trustees to scrap plans allowing a new charter school to operate there. The parents railed against the crowding and noise complications they say could occur if 60 students from Journey Charter School, the district's first charter program, inhabit the campus.

Morgan's Rock Hacienda and Ecolodge in San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua, is the best place I've stayed in Central America. There are 15 exquisite bungalows set in a 4,000-acre jungle. We had the entire beach to ourselves, where we rode horses. The kids also toured the farm where they milked cows and took the eggs from the hen and made a wonderful breakfast (hands-on cooking, where they learned to make tortillas from scratch). We went on beautiful rain-forest hikes and dined at its wonderful restaurant - really had it all in one spot.

Investigators in Orange County are looking into the business dealings of a man and woman who were shot to death inside their multimillion-dollar home in San Juan Capistrano over the weekend. The killings have shocked this normally quiet mission town, where violent crime is rare and homicides even rarer. Bradford and Andra Sachs were found dead at home early Saturday. An 8-year-old boy believed to be their son was also found shot and remains hospitalized. Two teenage girls, believed to be their daughters, were in the house at the time but were not hurt.

The man and woman who were killed in an upscale San Juan Capistrano home were identified as a divorced couple who continued to live together while they raised five children. Bradford Hans Sachs, 57, and Andra Resa Sachs, 54, were found dead inside the home at 32271 Peppertree Bend a little before 2 a.m. Saturday. An 8-year-old boy who was also at the home was taken to a local hospital with serious injuries. Investigators now are looking at the case as a homicide and are “exploring all possibilities,” but no suspects have yet been identified, Orange County Sheriff's Department spokesman Jeff Hallock said.

Flip-flops are banned at two city parks in San Juan Capistrano, and now city officials are scratching their heads, trying to figure out how and why the rule came to be. The flip-flop ban affects Los Rios Park in the city's historic district and a recently opened dog park, said city spokeswoman Cathy Salcedo. The rule had gone largely unnoticed at Los Rios. But when the dog park opened in August and the rules were posted, several commissioners with the city's Parks, Recreation and Senior Services were befuddled.
