The two men and two women were found inside a car Saturday but their identities were not confirmed until Thursday.

Don and Mera Rubell are known in the art world as the New York-to-Miami transplants who helped to bring the Art Basel art fair to Florida and opened a museum-like space there for their cutting-edge collection. Not so well known: their connections to California. They lived here briefly in 1969, when Don did his internship at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center before becoming a gynecologist. In 2005 and 2006 they flew from Miami to Los Angeles so often in search of new, exciting art that they called their resulting exhibition "Red Eye. " "We could have called it GPS," Mera said, laughing, remembering crisscrossing the city to reach artists' studios.

A 20-story floating city nicknamed Abe arrived Monday morning at the Port of Los Angeles, complete with several thousand giddy personnel who, throughout the day, donned civvies to storm Southland beaches and attractions as part of L.A. Navy Week. Hours earlier, the sailors had "manned the rails" — standing near the edges of the flight deck in their summer white uniforms as a tugboat towed the enormous Nimitz-class aircraft carrier into place. The Navy vessel returned in March to its home port of Everett, Wash., after a six-month deployment to the Persian Gulf, and is one of several ships in town for a grand show-and-tell this week.

In "Treason Probe--or Witch Hunt?" (Commentary, June 16) Tom Plate describes yet another important international issue, this time the Chinese rocket launching of U.S. communications satellites, where Republican Party hysteria in Congress is out of step with underlying American interests. The Republican Congress fails to pay United Nations dues, subverts international population planning efforts and will not move to approve the $18-billion contribution to the International Monetary Fund.

Sam Hall Kaplan misses the mark in "Save City West Plan From Deal Makers" (Aug. 20) when he says that the "first and highest obligation should be to the residents who now live there" and their alleged need for housing and schools. The highest and best use of this area is for development of the downtown Los Angeles business district, which serves the needs of all 15 million Southern California residents, not a handful of what are probably largely illegal aliens who could live in any of a number of other places.

We just returned from Las Vegas for a short vacation; we visit about twice a year. I think Southern California readers should realize that the amusement attractions at the hotels in Las Vegas are extremely expensive. Take, for instance, the roller coaster at the New York-New York casino hotel. Although it is very thrilling, its price of $10 per ride is outrageous. Compare this with a full day's trip to Knott's Berry Farm in Buena Park for $21 per adult (when purchased at Ralphs with a Ralphs Club Card)

Noble Threewitt, a thoroughbred trainer for 75 years who was known in Southern California for his friendly, gentle demeanor and dedication to helping workers in the barn areas, died of natural causes Friday at an assisted living facility in West Covina, said his grandson Chris Chinnici. He was 99. "He was a great man and did so much for racing," trainer Henry Moreno said. "They don't make them like him anymore. " Born on Feb. 24, 1911, in Benton, Ill., Noble Winfield Threewitt trained more than 2,000 winners after taking out a trainer's license at age 21 in 1931 at Agua Caliente Racetrack in Tijuana.

Tens of thousands of homeowners in Southern California are being forced to buy costly flood insurance because new maps issued by a federal agency say they live in a high-risk flood area. The federal government has informed property owners in more than 150 cities and unincorporated areas in Los Angeles, Orange, Ventura, Riverside and San Bernardino counties about the new requirement. Most live near rivers and creeks, below dams or in low- lying areas that are at greater risk of flooding than previously believed, according to maps developed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

Dena Lansford, 49, would like to have a cholesterol check, a mammogram and, soon, a colonoscopy. She hasn't seen a dentist in more than a year. She worries that she might suffer a similar fate as her mother, who had a stroke at 47. But after losing her job and health insurance last year, the Wildomar woman said, "I'm not doing any preventive care." As of February, an estimated 3.

Nestled among the rolling vineyards and horse ranches of the Santa Ynez Valley, the Ballard Inn rarely rents more than two or three of its 15 rooms on a Monday night in March. It doesn't even bother to open its well-regarded Cafe Chardonnay restaurant. But Monday -- five days into the war with Iraq -- the bed-and-breakfast filled nine rooms. In fact, business is up by about a third compared with this time in 2002, said Christine Forsyth, the innkeeper.

Three figures stand out in The Times Poll of 2,032 Southern California residents that was reported in Tuesday editions of The Times, concluding a series on the car culture and how automobiles have shaped the region. One is that 84% of those polled drive to work alone in their cars. Another is that 83% have not taken a bus in a year or more. And fewer than one-third of the respondents said they would use mass transit frequently even if it were available.
