Visibly aging but young at heart? Don't count on it, suggested researchers Tuesday. In a study following more than 10,000 people over 35 years, the presence of visible signs of aging signaled an increased risk of heart attack and heart disease. The research was presented at the American Heart Assn.'s Scientific Sessions in Los Angeles and was conducted in Denmark by University of Copenhagen biochemist Dr. Anne Tybjaerg-Hansen and colleagues. The team analyzed data collected from participants in a large study of heart disease, noting whether subjects developed heart disease and also whether they had any of six signs of aging: baldness at the crown of the head, receding hairline at the temples, gray hair, wrinkles, earlobe crease and fatty deposits around the eyelids.

The campaign for president may have hit a new low. First my "John Kerry for President" signs that I placed on the back hill of my property were stolen. After replacing them, the signs were torn down. Now my neighbor has had his Kerry sign defaced with a Bush/Cheney sticker. If we want to bring honor and integrity back to the White House, we need a change, and we need it now. And we need those lawbreaking, unpatriotic folks who walk my neighborhood to calm down and settle in, for Kerry and Edwards soon will be our leaders for good.

Amazing, isn't it? Sign makers for foreign demonstrators can always write in English. Especially when U.S. cameras will be snap- ping. AL HIX Hollywood

Reading the article "Lack of Hospitality," by Arnold Stone (June 24), reminded me of our drive last July from Vancouver, B.C., through Washington, Oregon and into California. There were many helpful directions and signs for tourists all through Washington and Oregon, but the moment we crossed the border into California, the first sign we saw was "$500 Fine for Littering." Very few directional signs were evident along the California coast. Winding through the hills near Bodega Bay, we were strictly on our own, fervently hoping that we were heading for San Francisco.

Nowhere in Orange County is there more campaign paraphernalia than in Huntington Beach. Surf City is plastered from vacant lot to telephone pole with colorful placards for the 10 candidates in two competitive races in today's election. "We're inundated," said Arnie Samardich, a code enforcement officer for the city. "There're definitely people who don't like it much."

Chris Johnson has gone from the Tennessee Titans to the onetime New York Titans. The former 2,000-yard running back signed a two-year deal with the New York Jets on Wednesday, according to multiple reports, potentially adding punch to an offense ranked 25 th in total yards last season. The Jets were the only team Johnson visited after being released by the Titans almost two weeks ago. Johnson, 28, is coming off a down season in which he averaged a career-low 3.9 yards per carry and didn't have a run longer than 30 yards.

New USC basketball Coach Andy Enfield has added a transfer from UNC Charlotte to his roster. Sophomore Darion Clark, a 6-foot-6, 235-pound forward, will have to sit out the 2013-2014 because of NCAA transfer rules and will have three years of eligibility left for the Trojans. Enfield said Wednesday, "Darion fits our style of play. We're excited to have him. " Clark played in 32 games as a freshman and started in 18 games for Charlotte. He averaged 6.2 points and 4.6 rebounds in 17.6 minutes a game, shooting 54.2% from the field.

The California Republican Party, long given up for dead, is showing surprising signs of life. The last two decades have marked a slow, steady decline for a party that once yielded such national figures as Earl Warren, Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan. Its registration rolls have fallen substantially. Worse is the recent record of statewide futility, a nearly unbroken skein of losses save for the 2003 election of Arnold Schwarzenegger under extraordinary circumstances (a snap recall vote)
