Emma Stone is Vogue's May 2014 cover girl, and we're pretty relieved that the hype  around April's notorious cover stars has died down. For the second time, the 25-year-old graces the cover of the fashion codex , and this time it's just ahead of her return to the big screen May 2 as Gwen Stacy, the early love interest of Andrew Garfield's Peter Parker, in "The Amazing Spider-Man 2. " And while she acknowledges that the process of...

It's hard to believe that only 50 years have passed since Julia Child set foot on the new continent of American Foodlandia. And yet in that short period, it seems we've already seen the full cycle of colonial development: discovery, exploration, exploitation. Three books on recent food history offer glimpses of each stage. Luke Barr's "Provence, 1970" describes the beginning; Colman Andrews' "My Usual Table" hits the middle period; and Allen Salkin's "From Scratch," a pulp history of the Food Network, covers the descent into decadence.

With more than 96% of the vote in, Democratic challenger Kent Conrad was 2,236 votes ahead in an upset of freshman Republican Sen. Mark Andrews. Andrews, a maverick who frequently voted against Reagan Administration policies, won his seat in the Reagan landslide of 1980 after serving 17 years in the House. He had characterized Conrad as an ultra-liberal pawn of the Eastern Establishment. Conrad accused Andrews of favoring cuts in Social Security and not doing enough to help farmers.

Irving Stone once wrote that a writer is "a composer, attempting to capture the music of life for a tone-deaf world." Harriet Doerr (obituary, Nov. 26) did that in her three books, writing with a crystal's edge of brilliance and lyric intensity. We are the richer for that accomplishment. T.F. Andrews Altadena

A 93-year-old Acton man was arrested Sunday morning on suspicion of manufacturing the illegal drug PCP after an all-night standoff that ended when sheriff's deputies fired tear gas into his home. Walter Todd was charged with operating a PCP laboratory and held in lieu of $75,000 bail, Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies said. Todd was not hurt but, because of his age, he was being held in the jail ward at County-USC Medical Center.

As the economic picture remains dark, gang-related shootings move to the suburban schools, and public investigations of those accused of abuse of the public trust drag on, I favor any open discussion that promotes understanding, especially among the young people who stand to inherit all the problems. Maybe Supt. Andrews and those individuals who objected to the visit of Mr. King would prefer persons like Supervisor (Don R.) Roth or Mitchell Gold or State Department officials to give "motivational" talks to young people.

The arts continue to baffle, boggle and bewilder. Last week during a hearing on its new allocation process for transient occupancy tax dollars, the city's Commission for Arts and Culture was stumped by Councilwoman Judy McCarty. Miffed because the commission had the temerity to suggest that maybe the Hall of Champions sports museum did not come under the general rubric of culture, McCarty, a Hall of Champions partisan, said, OK, define culture. The silence of the commission was deafening.

Andrew Garfield sounds more at home in the snappy suit he wore to the London world premiere of "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" than in the classic red-and-blue costume his character dons in the film.  Blame it on his "British reserve. "  "Spandex does not suit the British," Garfield told the Mirror on the red carpet Thursday. "You are pretty much naked, so you have to trust what you have is enough. " PHOTOS: Our favorite ripped Hollywood hotties We'll assume he just means enough fabric , mmm-kay?

A doctor has been indicted on federal drug trafficking charges for allegedly turning his East Los Angeles and San Gabriel clinics into lucrative mills where he doled out prescriptions for powerful painkillers and other widely abused medications in exchange for cash. Dr. Andrew S. Sun, 78, of La Mirada, surrendered to federal authorities and was expected to be arraigned Thursday. Sun faces 24 counts of prescribing Vicodin, Xanax, a cough syrup with codeine known on the street as "Purple Drank" and other dangerous narcotics to undercover agents who had no medical need for the drugs.

VANCOUVER, Canada - All the years of near misses, tedious bus rides and one excruciating waiting game faded away on Saturday morning for Andrew Campbell. Kings Coach Darryl Sutter summoned the 26-year-old defenseman and told him that he would be making his NHL debut, against the Vancouver Canucks. Televised on "Hockey Night in Canada," no less. "I got like a shiver right down my body, 'Wow, This is going to be the night,'" Campbell said after the morning skate. Arguably, this was the most important conversation of Campbell's hockey life.

Kansas forward Andrew Wiggins declared for the NBA draft on Monday. "It wasn't an easy decision because the fans showed me so much.... " said Wiggins, as reported by the Associated Press.  "I just wish I had more time. College goes by so fast, I can see why people stay all four years. " The 19-year-old, 6-foot-8 forward averaged 17.1 points a game for the Jayhawks (2nd seed), who were eliminated in the second round of the NCAA tournament by the 10th-seeded Stanford Cardinal.

Barry Bonds, long reviled by many in Pittsburgh after leaving the Pirates after the 1992 season to sign a free-agent deal with the San Francisco Giants, will get a chance to make amends Monday. Bonds, now a special instructor with the Giants, will present Pirates center fielder Andrew McCutchen with his National League MVP award before the Pirates play the Chicago Cubs. Pirates President Frank Coonelly joined Starkey and Mueller to explain the thinking behind this move and how it all came together.

CALGARY, Canada -- Achieving redemption, conquering pressure and gaining two points on the teams above them, the Ducks took extra satisfaction from their 3-2 victory over the Calgary Flames on Wednesday. Andrew Cogliano, who bluntly assessed the Ducks' 7-2 loss to the Flames at the Saddledome two weeks earlier as a teamwide “embarrassment,” scored the game-winning goal with 5 minutes 19 seconds left in the third period. The Ducks (47-18-7) stared down not only a 2-1 deficit at the start of the third, but another round of relentless pressure from the young, rising Flames (30-36-7)

I am a five-years-sober member of Alcoholics Anonymous who applauds Colman Andrews' "Getting Drunk" (Jan. 2). How typically American it is to go overboard with the drinking-is-bad-for-everyone mentality. I don't drink because I have a problem with alcohol. But why lay a guilt trip on those without such an affliction? HOLLY BEAM Palm Desert I hope that someday I happen to meet Andrews in a bar, imbibe a bit with him and congratulate him on being willing to accept responsibility for his alcohol consumption rather than blaming it on society, his alcoholic father or whatever.

Don't let Andrews fool you. Dinner at Arzak will cost a little more than $75 for two. First there's the cab ride to the airport. Then the flight to New York. From there a Concorde to the South of France. That would put us "like within 500 miles or so." We then take a cab to Arzak, to be waited upon by "an extremely well-trained squad of pleasant but no-nonsense waitresses." How fun. That's about $1035.25 American money, not including a way to get home, tips and the long-distance bill I receive after calling for reservations.

TEMPE, Ariz. -- The Detroit Tigers needed help at shortstop, and the Angels took advantage of that need to fortify their pitching depth. The Angels acquired left-hander Jose Alvarez from the Tigers on Friday for shortstop Andrew Romine. Angels General Manager Jerry Dipoto said Alvarez would join the team Sunday and could emerge as a minor league starter or major league swingman. Romine, 28, was out of options and unlikely to make the Angels. Tigers General Manager Dave Dombrowski told reporters that the switch-hitting Romine could be the left-handed batter in a platoon to replace the injured Jose Iglesias.

TEMPE, Ariz. - The Detroit Tigers needed help at shortstop, and the Angels took advantage of that need to fortify their pitching depth. The Angels acquired left-hander Jose Alvarez from the Tigers on Friday for shortstop Andrew Romine. Angels General Manager Jerry Dipoto said Alvarez would join the team Sunday and could emerge as a minor league starter or major league swingman. Dipoto said the trade addressed the "much-discussed" issue of whether the Angels had sufficient depth among starting pitchers.
