Design fans, set your DVRs: Bravo's "Million Dollar Decorators" returns for its second season tonight at 10. The series chronicles the extravagant exploits of Los Angeles designers Martyn Lawrence Bullard, Kathryn M. Ireland, Mary McDonald and Jeffrey Alan Marks, who are given to proclamations such as "Decorating is totally delicious" (Bullard, in a droll English accent) and, "Who wouldn't love a job where you get to spend other people's money?" (McDonald). As an antidote to the eye-popping, wallet-bruising shopping trips and frequent bickering you'll see during the course of eight episodes , we posed a simple, light-hearted challenge: Use their "Million Dollar Decorators'" eyes to find the best buys at Kmart and Marshalls.

At the Wisteria Village shopping center, grocery carts from a defunct Winn-Dixie supermarket sit idle near the front doors, and a pink neon seafood sign still glows in the back. Barely a mile away, a former Target department store looms over an empty, down-at-the-heel section of the Fountain Square center. Smaller shops overlooking acres of deserted parking lot feature "For Lease" signs. The death of shopping in a decrepit suburb? Hardly.

The City Council has ended months of controversy over the future of "Horse Country" by tentatively approving regulations that favor large lots for horse-keeping while allowing construction of some low-density housing. The council is expected to take final action June 22. The new rules are designed to preserve the area's rustic atmosphere by increasing open space, lowering housing densities and imposing aesthetic controls.

In a pair of developments Monday illustrating the volatility of coaching in the NFL, the Washington Redskins replaced Coach Marty Schottenheimer with Steve Spurrier; and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers dumped Coach Tony Dungy, paving the way to hire Bill Parcells. The firings underscore the pressure league owners feel to win, and win now. Most are long on money, short on patience.

Believing they were under fire, Inglewood police officers Sunday shot and killed a passenger in an approaching car and wounded the driver, but no weapons were found and no one has been charged, authorities said. The passenger was identified as 19-year-old Michael Byoune of Los Angeles, who died at the scene from gunshot wounds to the torso, said Los Angeles County coroner's investigator Jerry McKibben. The officers were in their patrol car near Crenshaw Boulevard and 8th Avenue about 1:40 a.m. when they heard gunfire and pursued a man who was running, said Inglewood Police Sgt. Hector Ramirez.
