Neither blazing sun nor chilly nights nor threat of rain can keep Marlene Madsen of Seal Beach away from "the thrill of the hunt." But it's not furry creatures that she and neighbor Dottie Black have come to search out in this Irvine parking lot where they have lived for days in a tent. The target: a sale. As they have for the last 11 years, they have come to bag St. John designer clothes, shoes and accessories from previous seasons at 50% off or more.

When David St. John makes his annual pilgrimage to Moonstone Beach, he looks at the crashing tide and recalls his incarnations from years past. Sometimes, he envisions the child who splashed with wonder in the tide pools, or the teenager who piled in the car with friends for surfing trips. Other times, he sees the middle-aged poet who used the waves as a recurring backdrop. At different phases of his life, the ocean has signified adventure, mortality or hard-earned wisdom; he's sure that other epiphanies will come.

When Hillary Rodham Clinton makes the rounds at the weeklong inaugural activities later this month, look for her dressed in a lavender, two-piece knit suit at one of the day events or a black dressy knit jacket for an evening gala. Marie Gray will undoubtedly keep an eye out. After all, the new First Lady will be wearing designs Gray created as co-owner and head designer of Irvine-based St. John Knits.

Call it a failed experiment. After an attempt to skew the St. John brand to a younger customer failed to jell with its knitwear-suit-wearing loyals, the company's original founders are returning to their design roles at the $400-million Irvine-based brand, which counts Hillary Rodham Clinton, Madeleine Albright and Gloria Allred as fans. Marie Gray, co-founder, and her daughter Kelly Gray, who was the face of the pre-Angelina Jolie ad campaigns, are both back and acting as creative consultants.

Top executives at public companies are well rewarded with salaries, bonuses and stock options. But a less obvious, but nonetheless lucrative, sort of compensation comes in the form of real estate deals and service contracts some have with the public companies they help manage. In such cases, they are the customer, the salesperson and the merchant rolled into one. But companies assure shareholders in their proxy statements that these familial deals are in the best interest of everyone concerned--and that the transactions are no less favorable than could be obtained from unaffiliated parties.

I was lost. Again. Signs for Malta's police headquarters in Floriana, which heretofore pointed right, now inexplicably pointed left, meaning that between the sign in front of me and the last one I passed, there should have been a police station. But unless officers hang their laundry from the second-floor balcony and sell fruit and vegetables out front, I had missed it. Help, however, was at hand. "Yoohoo, dearie," a nearby voice called.
