As you watch Scott Smith, a 6-foot-2, 215-pound, muscle-bound right-handed hitter, swatting balls over the fence during JetHawk batting practice, all the numbers make sense. 4--his spot in the batting order. 17--his season home run total between the JetHawks and Class-A Wisconsin Timber Rattlers, third best among Mariner minor leaguers. 82--his total runs batted in this season. And .332--his combined batting average.

Here are a few fashion tips for exotic travel one can glean from "The Ruins" -- regardless of the calendar's relationship to Labor Day, white jeans should not be worn for a jungle excursion, and flip-flops aren't such a hot idea either. Also, young women should heed the old truism about wearing clean underwear just in case, because somehow you will end up with your pants off, no matter the circumstances.

When James M. Cain published "The Postman Always Rings Twice" in 1934, a critic at the New York Herald Tribune--Franklin Pierce Adams--thought the novel so good he reprinted the first chapter in its entirety. The opening passage of "A Simple Plan" raises hopes of similar success, for while less dramatic and more conventional, it, too, briskly and forcefully locates the narrator in a particular place and time.

Gregory Scott Smith pleaded not guilty Wednesday in Ventura County Municipal Court to sexual molestation charges that prosecutors added to the murder, kidnap and arson charges he already faced in the death of an 8-year-old Northridge boy. An earlier complaint was dismissed and refiled with the new charges after a jailhouse informant told investigators that Smith discussed some circumstances surrounding Paul Bailly's death.

A psychologist testified Thursday that Gregory Scott Smith's kidnap, rape and murder of 8-year-old Paul Bailly had all the earmarks of premeditated sexual sadism. Christopher Hatcher, a San Francisco expert in child abduction cases, testified in the penalty trial in Ventura County Superior Court that evidence in Paul's death resembles evidence in dozens of other child slayings that he has analyzed.

Gregory Scott Smith's lawyer pleaded for his client's life Thursday, and a prosecutor urged jurors to give him the death penalty for the rape and murder of an 8-year-old Northridge boy 22 months ago. The attorneys' impassioned closing arguments in Ventura County Superior Court followed two months of testimony in a case that authorities have called the most disturbing in recent memory. Jurors must decide whether to recommend that Judge Steven Z.

The title of Scott B. Smith's page-turning novel "A Simple Plan," and the smartly condensed script he adapted for director Sam Raimi, describes the solution that a winter hiker comes up with after he and two others happen onto the carcass of a downed single-engine plane, and decide to keep a duffel bag found inside containing more than $4 million in cash. The plan's architect is Hank Mitchell (Bill Paxton), a married, underpaid accountant for a small mill in a depressed Midwestern town.

A Ventura County jury recommended Tuesday that Gregory Scott Smith be sentenced to die in the gas chamber for kidnaping, raping and murdering an 8-year-old Northridge boy and setting his body on fire near Simi Valley two years ago. Smith, 23, a former Canoga Park day-care aide, sagged and sobbed loudly under the arm of his attorney as Judge Steven Z. Perren read the verdict, which the jury reached after two months of testimony and less than eight hours of deliberations.

One hazy March morning last year, Ventura County firefighters sped to a grassy field in Simi Valley to answer a motorist's report of a brush fire. Instead, they found the body of a boy, gagged with duct tape, soaked with gasoline and burned beyond recognition. It was 8-year-old Paul Bailly of Northridge.
