Today's Features

  • You must know that as I write these weekly columns, I try to keep a positive spin on things. After all, to me that’s what assets really boils down to.
    On the other hand, sometimes it is hard to pretend all is right in the world, when it really isn’t.
    The asset for this week is peaceful conflict resolution. While the definition entails ending conflict non-violently, I feel that should also extend to words and deeds, and not just boil down to throwing punches.

  • LOS ANGELES (AP) — Jane Russell, the busty brunette who shot to fame as the sexy star of Howard Hughes' 1941 Western "The Outlaw," died Monday of respiratory failure, her family said. She was 89.

    Although Russell largely retired from Hollywood after her final film, 1970's "Darker Than Amber," she had remained active in her church, with charitable organizations and with a local singing group until her health began to decline just a couple weeks ago, said her daughter-in-law, Etta Waterfield. She died at her home in Santa Maria.

  • LOS ANGELES (AP) — These were supposed to be the younger, hipper Academy Awards, the ones that shook up the ceremony's conventions with popular, great-looking emcees in actors James Franco and Anne Hathaway, who were unlike the middle-aged comedians and TV talk-show hosts of years past.

  • Duke Snider, the Hall of Fame center fielder for the charmed "Boys of Summer" who helped the Dodgers bring their elusive and only World Series crown to Brooklyn, died Sunday. He was 84.

    Snider died at the Valle Vista Convalescent Hospital in Escondido, Calif., said the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum, which announced the death on behalf of the family. Snider had been ill for months. His family said he died of natural causes.
