Big Bird snorts cocaine. Mr. Hooper uses his store as a front for stolen goods. Oscar the Grouch keeps pornography in his trash can. If these are the stories you are looking for, too bad. "Street Gang: The Complete History of Sesame Street" is not a Hollywood tell-all. No puppeteer hung himself by his own strings; Cookie Monster was not discovered on a casting couch. It is not even set in Hollywood.

Four hikers were stranded between two rain-swollen waterways in Malibu Creek State Park on Saturday night as rescuers attempted to reach them. Because of the stormy weather, a helicopter could not access the area, which is near the 1900 block of Las Virgenes Road between a rock pool and a creek, said Michael Pittman, a supervising dispatcher for the Los Angeles County Fire Department. The hikers, who called for help about 7 p.m., are not in danger, but a search-and-rescue team was expected to take four or five hours to bring them out of the canyon.

It's always a sunny day on Sesame Street in the West Bank, where the neighbors are friendly and the muppets never see an Israeli army checkpoint. "Shara'a Simsim" teaches Palestinian children they can achieve an independent state through tolerance, education and national pride -- and not anti-Israeli violence. "Our problem is that for so long, we've been focusing on resistance, and we gave up on other things like culture, education and tolerance," said Daoud Kuttab, executive producer of the Palestinian version of the TV show.

SOCHI, Russia - The sun shines brightly as a gentle breeze rustles palm trees along the shore. The forecast calls for a mostly clear sky with mild temperatures through the week. Welcome to the Winter Olympics. The 2014 Sochi Games will take place 1,000 miles south of Moscow, at a Black Sea resort that qualifies as one of only a few Russian cities with a subtropical climate. If that seems less than hibernal, the organizers insist they can stage a successful competition no matter what kind of weather there is over the next month.

Southern California residents stowed their umbrellas and stormed area parks and beaches Saturday as a blast of sunny, unseasonably warm weather broke what seemed to be a monthlong curse of rain-soaked weekends. Saturday's temperatures were balmy with highs of 84 degrees in Anaheim, 83 in Fullerton and a slightly cooler 65 in Newport Beach, said Amy Talmage, a meteorologist with WeatherData, which provides weather information to the Los Angeles Times.

My wife and I found Redondo Beach crowded with young people on their spring break when we went for a walk along the shore on Sunday. As we walked we saw a sailboat get into trouble when the wind and surf drove it aground onto the sand offshore. Los Angeles County lifeguards immediately swam out and took two young girls (about 8 years old) off the boat and then tried to push the boat (about 35 feet long) and her skipper off the sandy bottom. At this point, about 25 young men and one young woman went out to assist.

On a balmy day in 1932, Ellsworth Vines became in 40 minutes what hundreds of people wait decades to become--a member of the All England Lawn Tennis & Croquet Club. Nowadays, winning the gentleman's singles title at Wimbledon may be the easiest way to gain membership to the club. There are currently only 375 members, and club officials have stopped counting the number on the waiting list.

A sunny day in Juneau is cause for a celebration. In fact, there was a time that whenever the sun ruled over a cloudless sky, the governor pronounced a "sun holiday" for southeast Alaska. Boaters have been known to cut short a salmon-fishing trip in order to haul out and paint their vessels in the sunshine. "Juneau sneakers" (rubber boots) are put aside, flannel shirts are shed and pale skin turns sunward in the pink. "For me, a day like this makes it all worthwhile," said a smiling taxi driver.

The Pentagon recently postponed a missile defense test due to poor weather. A few days later when the weather improved, the test was resumed and the dummy warhead was destroyed, as planned ("Rocket Scores Third Hit in Missile Shield Tests," Dec. 4). Our president and the Pentagon hailed this test as a great success. I hope that any nation with nuclear capabilities that chooses to attack us does so on a warm, sunny day. Larry Wilcox Los Angeles

Could I really believe my eyes? Armored vehicles driving up the freeway into L.A.? Was this really happening on a bright, sunny day in May? My memory turned back to those days in 1946 when, as a child, I saw the same thing happening in England. Only then, we were at war, in the midst of a conflict. This time, the vehicles were rolling into the city, to prevent more destruction and bloodshed. How can we prevent it from happening in the future? As a democracy, the answer lies in our hands . . .

In Southern California, where the abundance of sunshine can lead to numerous days at the beach and a summer full of pool parties, the purchase of a new swimsuit is serious business. For some women, it's the toughest sartorial challenge of the summer. The shopping process often involves many trips to the mall, the nightmare of dressing room lighting and small pieces of stretchy fabric that will force a shopper to take notice of every bump and ripple on her body. This season, however, the less-is-more philosophy in swimwear is taking a back seat to a focus on smart, fashionable styling.

Suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome meant I was exhausted all the time. I felt like I had cotton candy where a brain should be. Embarrassingly for a former English major, I lost words, even simple ones. "You know, those things! They go on feet!" I'd cry, frustrated. "Shoes?" my mom would ask. "Socks?" I also lost my life as I knew it. One week I had a full college load, my nights spent clubbing or writing essays, surviving on caffeine and chocolate. The next, I became so exhausted pulling on pantyhose that I had to lie down for an hour.

On a sultry midweek afternoon at the grand new Resort at Pelican Hill, a scant dozen vacationers lounged at what is billed as the world's largest circular pool, flanked on one side by a Coliseum-style amphitheater and on the other by an ocean-view golf course. A few miles south in Laguna Beach, most of the 170 lounge chairs at the Montage resort's oceanfront pool were empty as the afternoon wore on. Cocktail hour arrived, but at 5:45 p.m. only a single table at the poolside Mosaic Bar & Grille was occupied.

Matthew Williamson's haute hippie look is splashing through H&M with a kaleidoscope of the strong color and ethnic influences the British designer is known for. It's a collection that will have you booking a sunny getaway as an excuse for picking up the clothes and accessories. The first installment of Williamson's collaboration with the fast-fashion chain -- a selection of women's apparel -- went into H&M stores two weeks ago.
