David "Panama" Francis, whose drumming was featured both in top Harlem nightclubs and legendary rock songs, has died. He was 82. Francis died Tuesday in Miami after a stroke. His career spanned seven decades. He first achieved fame in the late 1930s playing with the Savoy Sultans--once described by Dizzy Gillespie as "the swingingest band there ever was"--at the Savoy Ballroom in Harlem. The Sultans reemerged four decades later under Francis' leadership and drumming prowess.

With temperatures heating up, it's a good time to take your workout to the water. After years of getting a bad rap as "senior-cize," water workouts are finally moving into the younger mainstream, as they did years ago in Europe, Japan and South America, says Lori Templeman, a Sacramento trainer with the Aquatic Exercise Assn. "You can work hard in the water and maintain your intensity without banging up your body," Templeman says. Water's buoyancy protects your joints, while its resistance loads your muscles in a way that makes recovery easier.

Six elephant seals and one California sea lion were released back into the ocean Wednesday by workers at the Marine Mammal Care Center at Ft. MacArthur in San Pedro. The animals had been found either sick or injured. They were released a few miles west of Catalina. "They slid down the ramp, into the ocean and off they went," said Jack Cameron, a volunteer. "We saw one of them at a distance kind of look back at us, but once they get out there, they're gone."

I am sure you've seen the advertisements for golf balls with so many hundred dimples. It seems to me that golf balls are getting to be a little bit like child movie stars. The more dimples the better. I go all those dimples one step further. I have golf balls with 392 dimples and 292 smiles. Like most weekend hackers, I use those cut-up balls when I have a water hazard in front of me, even if it is no bigger than a bath tub.

For Southern Californians trying to save water and reduce their use of energy, a pool may seem like the biggest unnecessary luxury around. But with about 500,000 pools in Los Angeles, Orange and Ventura counties combined -- the largest concentration of pools in North America, according to research firm Pool List USA -- pool culture is ingrained in the region.

Question: What's the only thing worse than a game between the Baltimore Orioles and the Angels in the rain? Answer: Two of them, which is the grim prospect for today. Heaven help us, unlike Wednesday night, when the skies opened just enough to let a little more rain into the lives of the teams with the worst records in the American League--but not enough to force a second consecutive postponement.

Each swimsuit that Jennifer Schuman designs was inspired by--and named for--one of her girlfriends. She hasn't run out of names yet, but then her company, Luce di Sole--"Italian for sunlight"--has only been around for about six months. "My inspiration also comes from the ocean and sun and the colors of watermelon," adds the 26-year-old native Angeleno, who admits to having no previous design experience beyond whipping up the occasional prom dress and a "Charlie's Angels" Halloween costume.

April 7, 1991 | MICHAEL FESSIER JR., Michael Fessier Jr. is still conserving water in Santa Barbara. He is the author of "The Disappearance, Death and Rise to Stardom of Roy Radin," a book about the Cotton Club murders, due to be published in the fall.
I CAN'T BE ABSOLUTELY SURE WHY he set his automatic sprinklers to pop on at 4:30 every morning. It's possible he did this as a wise gardener, watering in the cool hours of the least evaporation. On the other hand, he may have done it because he didn't want his neighbors to know what he was up to in the middle of Stage Three, the darkest, driest moment in Santa Barbara's water crisis. I leaned toward the second explanation.

Water polo goalies are moody fellows, for they have some heavy, fast things to consider. That funny yellow rubber ball, heavier and harder than a volleyball and so strangely released by the shooter, is coming at them, quickly . Eventually there will be an unpleasant collision among the saves, and the goalie has half a game in still water to think about it. Goalies, see, take it in the face. A lot.
