If you drove down the center of Hurstview Avenue heading east, you would be in the city of Monrovia. But your passenger would be in Duarte. Or hop on South Myrtle Avenue in Monrovia. As you cross Altern Street, you are under county jurisdiction for about half a mile. Pass Wayland Way and you return to Monrovia, but only for about 350 feet. Then it's back to the county again--for another three-eighths of a mile.

AOL Mail has changed its policies to prevent spammers from sending messages out of addresses that are made to look like real AOL email accounts. The company announced the change Tuesday afternoon after numerous users took to Twitter to complain that their accounts were being used to send spam and that changing their passwords was not resolving the issue. Some users complained that spam was being sent from AOL accounts that had been deleted. That was possible because the spam messages were not being sent from users' actual accounts.

In the film "The King's Speech," Colin Firth plays King George VI of Britain. After his older brother Edward ran off with an American woman, George took over the throne. But in order to address his subjects, the new king had to overcome a major obstacle: his stutter. By portraying the difficulties the king faced in confronting his speech disorder, the film promises to bring awareness to a topic that is often misunderstood by the public, say national leaders in the field. "We are absolutely thrilled to see stuttering portrayed in a way that is going to introduce a whole new generation to how devastating this problem can be," says Jane Fraser, president of the Stuttering Foundation of America, a national nonprofit organization.

WASHINGTON - Atty. Gen. Eric H. Holder Jr. has been crusading for more lenient treatment for nonviolent drug offenders, making it a top priority before he is expected to leave office this year. Recently, however, he has been forced to confront an epidemic of deaths from heroin and prescription drug abuse, one that his opponents have cited as a reason for not loosening drug sentences. In prepared remarks for a speech Wednesday, Holder cited the "stunning rise in heroin and prescription opiate overdose deaths" and vowed the Justice Department was committed to "rigorous enforcement" of the drug laws and "robust treatment" of drug addicts.

The judge in the Jerry Sandusky trial on Tuesday ordered prosecutors to turn over the telephone numbers and addresses of those who say they were sexually abused by the former Penn State football coach, so that the defense can seek them out before the trial. The ruling comes as both sides are fighting through the pretrial stage in the closely watched case, which is scheduled for court in mid-May. Sandusky, 68, is charged with more than 50 counts of sexually abusing 10 boys over 15 years.

Vice President Joe Biden praised the 972 Army cadets who graduated from West Point on Saturday for their decision to join the military, “knowing full well that you were likely to be deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan.” “Your generation, the9/11generation, is more than worthy of the proud legacy that you will inherit today,” Biden said in his commencement address to the newly commissioned second lieutenants. “Most of you were in elementary school on Sept. 11, 2001, when your nation was attacked; old enough to remember, perhaps, but young enough that that tragic day need not have shaped your lives,” he said.

Betsy Andreu might not have collected the affirmation she sought from Lance Armstrong, but she indeed emerged vindicated from the tarnished cyclist's interview with Oprah Winfrey. “It's a relief for myself because he told the truth.… For him to get on TV and say he was a cheat and a fraud for all of his seven Tour wins, that took a hell of a lot of courage,” Andreu said. “He's broken, and that's sad.” Andreu, the wife of Armstrong's former Tour de France teammate and close friend Frankie Andreu, was a determined critic of Armstrong's for years, dating to her insistence that the couple heard Armstrong tell cancer doctors at an Indiana hospital in 1996 that he indeed had been using several performance-enhancing substances.

Jon Bon Jovi has addressed his daughter Stephanie Bongiovi's recent heroin overdose, calling the incident "human" and expressing appreciation for fans' concern. Bongiovi, 19, was arrested a week ago at her Hamilton College dorm after an overdose was reported. She was charged with misdemeanor drug offenses, but the charges were quickly dropped under a New York state law granting immunity to those involved when official help is sought during a life-threatening overdose. "It's human," Bon Jovi told Fox 11 on Tuesday night while promoting the soundtrack to "Stand Up Guys.

Call it A-List Los Angeles. L.A. County has plenty of high-end neighborhoods, from Palos Verdes Estates to Pasadena. But when it comes to finding the best mansions in town, there's still nothing quite like the golden corridor from Beverly Hills to Malibu. This Westside area boasts one of the world's great concentrations of premier residential estates. The highest-price home transaction ever in California took place in this territory: the 2000 sale of an 8-acre Bellagio Road estate in Bel-Air by Dole Food Co.'s billionaire owner, David Murdock, to financial executive Gary Winnick in a $95-million deal.

Ken Burns' new documentary, "The Address," which premieres Tuesday on PBS, is not at all what we have come to think of as a Ken Burns film. There are no celebrity voices reading documents of the dead; no narrator reading the words of Geoffrey C. Ward; no team of experts to elucidate the American past or an American pastime; no Buck O'Neil to bring back a world lost, but remembered. No "Ken Burns Effect," for that matter, the signature, all-but-patented, slow, close caress of old photographs that has taken his name.

"Touching the Wild" (PBS, Wednesday). "That deer was willing to see me as an individual, and he very clearly saw that I granted him his individuality," says naturalist Joe Hutto of the meeting that led to years spent becoming one with the mule deer of Wyoming. "I was not seeing something, I was seeing someone. " If any part of that sentence or this one -- "I don't mind going beyond science, and I try to walk a fine line between the science and the sentiment; this is about making contact with the wild" -- seems wrong to you, you will want to stay far from this lovely film, presented as an episode of "Nature," a companion to Hutto's book "Touching the Wild: Living With the Mule Deer of Deadman Gulch.

A new report on spurring job growth in Los Angeles covers the bases, but leaves Hollywood out of the picture. The Los Angeles 2020 Commission report, titled "A Time for Action," was commissioned last year by City Council President Herb Wesson and offers various prescriptions to reverse a net decline in jobs over the last two decades. The recommendations include such ideas as promoting bioscience research, establishing a regional tourism authority and combining the ports of L.A. and Long Beach.

Rather than launch a follow-up to Charlie Sheen's "Violent Torpedo of Truth" live tour, "Two and a Half Men" star Angus T. Jones is partially apologizing for his recent comments against the successful CBS sitcom. The 19-year-old actor made headlines Monday after appearing in a testimonial posted by the Forerunner Christian Church, in which he labeled the CBS ratings juggernaut "filth" and urged viewers not to watch the show -- in addition to noting his desire to no longer be part of the series.

Los Angeles school district officials announced a lawsuit settlement Tuesday that will provide $60 million in pay increases, services and staff at about three dozen schools, many hit hard by teacher layoffs. But the pact fails to deal with whether instructors should continue to be dismissed based on seniority. The case of Reed vs. L.A. Unified, filed in 2010, was intended to protect a school from disproportionate layoffs during difficult economic times. Three campuses named in the suit had lost about half their faculty because teachers had less experience than those elsewhere in the system.
