The San Fernando Valley is 260 square miles of suburbia. Actually, make that suburbia on nutritional supplements. And antidepressants. With perhaps a little cosmetic surgery south of Ventura Boulevard, where the big money is. Or maybe - now that it's grown to more than 1.7 million people in nearly three dozen cities and neighborhoods rich and poor - the Valley isn't even a suburb anymore. It begins just 10 miles northwest of Los Angeles City Hall, sprawling west to the Simi Hills, north to the Santa Susana Mountains, and east to the Verdugo and San Gabriel mountains.

Mammoth Mountain plans to be open Memorial Day weekend and is featuring a $180 three-day pass and 20% off lodgings for the holiday weekend. Spring skiing rates at the Mammoth Lakes, Calif., ski resort started this week, with savings and slope time for those who don't want to give in to summer just yet. The deal: The ski resort Thursday reported a base depth of 20 inches at the main lodge (8,900 feet) and 50 inches at the summit (11,053 feet). Though temperatures were in the low 50s on Thursday, the resort was expecting more than a foot of snow by Saturday morning.

If it please the court, let us stipulate to a few things upfront: First, Zsa Zsa Gabor does n ot look so fat that it would take three or four strong men to lift her onto a horse. And Elke Sommer does not resemble a bald-headed, Hollywood has-been who hangs out in seedy bars and has to sell hand-knitted pullover sweaters to eke out a living.

Jermaine Jackson says he took a biting musical swipe at his superstar sibling, Michael, because his younger brother had frozen him out of his life. In an interview, Jermaine explained that the cantankerous lyrics to his song "Word to the Badd!!," which criticize Michael for allegedly changing his skin color and obtaining plastic surgery, were written in retaliation for eight months of unreturned phone calls.

When they converged in San Francisco about 45 years ago, Wolfgang Paalen, Gordon Onslow Ford and Lee Mullican wanted nothing less than to be image makers of cosmic freedom. The purpose of art, they thought, was self-transcending awareness.

REMEMBERING HER DAYS AS A young girl--"No one would have accused me of being a happy child"--Leslie Abramson has an enduring memory of her favorite means of escape. After school, at the corner luncheonette, she'd buy button candies and chocolate marshmallow twists (two for a nickel) and spend hours at the comic-book racks, reading. Mad magazine was good for a giggle. But it was the spooky stuff, the horror comics like "Tales From the Crypt," that she really loved. And hated, too.

The night before had been unseasonably cold for late April, with a low near 20, but now the campus was basking in sunshine. Shirtless joggers bounded past pale co-eds stretched out on blankets, and leafless trees seemed to sprout green buds in a matter of hours, as in time-lapse photography. In a dark and cramped basement room in venerable Sorin Hall, a restless freshman football player slipped on a pair of shorts and boat shoes.

Thousands of bills are introduced in a congressional session, but only a fraction become law. Even without that success, they call attention to their causes - or their sponsors. Here are a few of the eclectic measures awaiting action in Congress. Apollo Lunar Landing Legacy Act: Would establish the Apollo Lunar Landing Sites National Historical Park on the moon. Argument for: "In 1969, led by the late Apollo astronaut Neil Armstrong, American ingenuity changed history as humanity took a giant leap forward on the surface of the moon," said Rep.

Here are some ideas for a more sustainable workout - for you and, perhaps, the planet. Walk. No equipment, no driving, no gym. If you're more ambitious, run. No more disposable water bottles. Or paper towels. Go old-school, with push-ups, jumping jacks and other exercises or yoga routines you can do at home. Try grown-up playgrounds. Some city parks have "fitness zones," with outdoor gym equipment. There's one set in La Cienega Park, at the corner of La Cienega and Olympic boulevards, with kids' equipment nearby.

I'd been living in Los Angeles a short time when I found myself in an improv comedy class in Hollywood. A friend who was also an actress had encouraged, well, nagged me to enroll in what is now iO West, the West Coast offshoot of Chicago's ImprovOlympic. I was intimidated, but I also was lonely and looking for a challenge, so I went. That choice, to face my fears and connect with others, forever changed my life. From the outside, the tiny theater space on a stretch of Santa Monica Boulevard looked industrial - not the beachy sort of place I, a newcomer to L.A., had imagined it would be. I was not impressed.

So much ado about leggings. Blogger Charlotte Allen recently took to task the overly sensitive parents of middle schoolers who were outraged that the administration of Haven Middle School in Evanston, Ill., seemed to be banning short-shorts, leggings, yoga pants and skinny jeans on girls because they were too distracting to middle school boys. The parents contended that such an edict essentially said it was the girls' responsibility not to entice hormone-addled middle school boys.

University officials and the NCAA have been reluctant to acknowledge that top-tier college football programs are run these days less as athletic programs than as businesses. But a labor administrator's decision Wednesday that Northwestern University's scholarship football players are, in fact, employees with the right to unionize should get their attention. This issue has been bubbling for decades as major sports programs evolved from important but ancillary parts of a college's mission into powerful businesses enriched by multimillion-dollar TV contracts and merchandising revenue, all built on the labor of student-athletes who received no compensation beyond scholarships.

We live in a contradictory age, when city slickers pay a fortune to become weekend buckaroos herding cattle in the Wyoming outback, yet disdain red meat at the dinner table in favor of some pale bottom-trash fish with a sprig of parsley in its mouth. I'm sorry, Hopalong, but this won't do. If you seek the authentic western experience you had better be prepared to sink your canines into a serious chunk of bovine.

Kenny Chesney must have gotten word about the Malibu dress code: It's baseball caps, dude, not cowboy hats. What other possible explanation is there for the country music legend to have bought a house in the Carbon Canyon neighborhood for $7.4 million in February and then promptly re-listed it for sale at $7.95 million? The home, which was listed at $7.5 million when Chesney bought it a nanosecond ago, has expansive ocean views.

"It's time to get going again. " With these words, host and astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson kicks off the new documentary series, "Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey. " Premiering on Fox, the National Geographic Channel and eight other affiliated networks Sunday night, it is a follow-up to "Cosmos: A Personal Voyage," the groundbreaking and hugely popular 1980 PBS series hosted by astronomer Carl Sagan. Tyson, strolling along the scenic California coastal cliffs of Monterey - just as Sagan did in the opening minutes of the original - is talking about bringing the franchise to a new generation, but with a command that can also be interpreted as a mission statement.
