Good news out of Palm Springs this week: Work has begun on dismantling "Forever Marilyn," the grotesque colossus fabricated with typical ham-handedness by sculptor J. Seward Johnson, which has been marring an already vacant lot at a prominent downtown corner for the last two years. The sculpture is headed out of town by flatbed truck for an exhibition back East. Good news because good riddance. "Forever Marilyn" is a 26-foot-tall leviathan whose claim to notoriety is that it besmirches the memory of a marvelous 1955 movie by the late, great Billy Wilder.

One of Los Angeles' longtime developers is betting big on the revival of Hollywood as he launches work on a $138-million speculative office development near Santa Monica Boulevard. After dusting off plans for an office complex first conceived before the 2008 recession brought development to a halt, Jerry Snyder has begun construction of his 959 Seward project, even though he has no tenants lined up. Snyder, who has been in the real estate business since 1949, thinks demand is strong enough among businesses in creative fields such as entertainment to justify the risk of building a campus-style complex catering primarily to them in a part of Hollywood known as the Media District.

A Napa woman died of injuries suffered when she was hit by a half-ton piece of ice that fell from Exit Glacier in Alaska's Kenai National Fiords Park. Park Service spokeswoman Nancy Stromsen said Thais Grabenauer, 59, and her husband, Ken, were taking photographs within a few feet of the glacier near Seward when the chunk of ice, estimated to weigh at least 1,000 pounds, broke free. The ice landed on Mrs. Grabenauer and shattered.

We have lived at the foot of Pittsfield Lane for more than 15 years, less than 50 yards from the site of the neighborhood-built volleyball court. We are not players, but we feel the attitude that "we know what's best for you" shown by the Ventura County Parks Department's decision to remove it is bureaucratic arrogance. The posts were planted and the net put in place at no cost to the taxpayers. There is no threat to public safety, there are portable restrooms half a block away at the end of Seward, and most of the players live in the neighborhood and use their own facilities.

Christ College Irvine blew a 14-point first-half lead and lost to Concordia Seward of Nebraska, 72-62, in a nonconference men's basketball game Friday at Christ College. Concordia Seward (10-4) trailed, 20-6, early in the first half before rallying. Devin Smith scored 21 of his game-high 27 points in the first half as Concordia pulled to within two points, 29-27, at halftime. "We kind of fell apart a bit and helped them," CCI Coach Greg Marshall said. "We made some key turnovers."

Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin helped Auburn celebrate hometown son William Seward's purchase of Alaska in 1867 as part of the upstate New York community's inaugural Founder's Day. More than 20,000 people turned out to see Palin lead a parade through Auburn and sign a proclamation honoring Seward, the U.S. Secretary of State who negotiated the $7.2-million deal with Russia for Alaska, which is celebrating its 50th year of statehood. Later, Palin spoke to several hundred people at a private fundraiser for the Seward House, a national landmark, where she criticized the Obama administration for its policies on national security and energy and its handling of the economic crisis.

Seward Street is part of the real Hollywood. The working Hollywood, that is--not the glamour side and not Hollywood Boulevard, with its strange nocturnal life forms. Seward Street is a street you'd probably never have any reason to drive down unless you were getting some film reels developed. Big blank walls, most no higher than two stories, line Seward: Film labs and sound stages don't go in for a lot of windows.

Fashion's power to transport. That's what I look for at the runway shows, the kind of enchantment that breeds desire. It's what I crave in the gray days of winter too, right about this time of year when I get spring fever. But on a cold, crisp Paris day last October, I found it at a showroom on Rue du Faubourg St. Honore, where Vanessa Seward, artistic director of the under-the-radar French fashion house of Loris Azzaro, was hosting a presentation of her spring collection.

For Wall Street investors, an annual dividend of $2 to $3 per share is about as good as it gets. So one might only imagine what the reaction would be to receiving $650 per share in dividends in six months. That's been the payout to the 7,000 or so shareholders in Cook Inlet Region Inc., an Alaska Native corporation that hit it big in the telecommunications business. Some $408 million has been paid out to the shareholders, all of them Native Alaskans and most owning 100 shares in the corporation.

Signed letters from Franklin D. Roosevelt and Richard Nixon were among dozens of political keepsakes found inside a scrapbook salvaged from a car wash trash bin. The black, leather-bound book chronicles the life of Charles Seward, grandson of Abraham Lincoln's secretary of state, William Seward. A woman rooting through the bins stumbled across the book and turned it over to authorities last week.

Frigid temperatures, gusting winds and a touch of rain greeted Mike Seward of Antelope Valley High as he stepped to the plate in the bottom of the seventh inning Wednesday. Seconds later, however, Seward and his teammates were walking on sunshine after the junior singled to drive in Sean Douglass from second base with the winning run in the Antelopes' 5-4 Golden League baseball victory over Palmdale at Antelope Valley.

When Bill Walsh left as coach of the San Francisco 49ers and found work as a commentator for NBC, he had no previous broadcasting experience, but received a multiyear contract that paid him between $500,000 and $600,000 a year. When Bill Seward left his job in 1985 as football coach at St. Bernard High to pursue a broadcasting career, he took a pay cut. But Seward was eager to start an $800-a-month position as a sports director and anchor at KVIQ, a CBS-TV affiliate in Eureka.

It's 6 a.m. and a hazy dawn has broken over Ventura Harbor. This is a peaceful time of day, when the two southernmost blocks of Ventura's Seaward Avenue are deserted. Midday finds the area bustling. If you're spending the day at San Buenaventura Beach, you're bound to get hungry--and that is perhaps the best reason to visit this unusual street. The beach end of Seaward Avenue was dreary and run down a few years ago.
