Not much in the men's shoe department at Nordstrom interests Dan Ledieff. The former La Habra and Cal State Long Beach football standout is a rat all right, but he's of the gym variety, not the mall type. Ledieff has little use for anything in a wingtip with high polish. Cleats with caked mud are more his style. There's a time and place for everything, and Ledieff is spending many of this summer's waking hours at the gym lifting weights and on the track running laps and stadium stairs.

Dr. Jeffry Life smiles when I tell him about the general reaction I get about the famous picture of him with his shirt off, the shot that turned a mild-mannered doctor in his mid-60s into a poster boy for super-fit aging and controversial hormone replacement Appearing in medical-clinic ads in airline magazines and...

Dr. Jay Goldstein of Anaheim Hills has spent the last five years researching and treating patients with chronic fatigue syndrome, a debilitating disease characterized by incapacitating exhaustion and a range of other perplexing symptoms. Explaining his theory of an unknown retrovirus invading the immune system, inducing cells to produce a chemical transmitter affecting the entire body, Goldstein pauses.

LAS VEGAS - For nearly five years, the steel-and-concrete skeleton of the abandoned resort project has taunted this city, a glaring reminder that casino operators here can't win every economic wager they place. The stalled Echelon project sits on hallowed gambling ground: It's where the old Stardust casino was imploded. Construction on the new $4-billion resort began in 2007 and froze a year later - a failure so embarrassing that city officials later ordered owner Boyd Gaming Corp.

"That Constant Coyote" consists of six new stories and 19 that Haslam published as long ago as 1972.
