April 30, 1987 | From Associated Press
Kathleen Turner, whose roles have ranged from the seductive murderess in "Body Heat" to the naive author in "Romancing the Stone," is expecting her first child later this year, her spokeswoman said today. Turner, 32, is married to real estate agent Jay Weiss. The sultry, husky-voiced actress was nominated for a best-actress Academy Award earlier this year for her role in "Peggy Sue Got Married."

Search teams combed mountain terrain for a 12-year-old Boy Scout who disappeared after lunch Saturday during a Greensboro troop outing in the Blue Ridge Parkway. Searchers found part of his mess kit less than a mile away. Searchers spread out from the trail into rugged terrain but were narrowing their search at night because of the risks involved, authorities said. The broader search was to resume at today. A helicopter with a body heat sensor was assisting.

On a good day, Nan Schwartz Mishkin will squeeze three minutes of music out of eight hours of work and still make it home in time for dinner. On an off day, the notes don't come so easily, and the thirtysomething composer sits in her San Fernando Valley studio until they do. The music Mishkin slaves over will never be heard on mainstream radio, and isn't likely to wind up on a CD player anytime soon.

In 1941, Justice Laub was an Air Corps staff sergeant stationed on an island about the size of an Orange County shopping mall in the middle of a crater lake in Goose Bay, Labrador. "I was a city boy," recalled the Leisure World resident, a retired clothing salesman, now 66. "I didn't know much about these wilderness things, but I knew how to shoot, of course. One of the first things I shot up there was a porcupine. I found out later that porcupine is considered the trapper's friend."

On the shade inside his bathroom door, Mickey Rourke has scribbled his warrior credo. "I must be mentally and physically prepared so defeat does not exist in my mind and body. Shadow box in a mirror 30 minutes a day. Movement is concentrated. Positive attitude to survive and be as good as I can possibly be. No excuses for laziness. And no second chance again."

EVERY fall, when braising season begins in earnest, we pull out our favorite heavyweight: a 5.5-quart round Le Creuset enameled cast-iron pot. It's perfect for slow-cooking meat until it's meltingly tender, turning the braising liquid into a deeply flavorful sauce. We love everything about this pot -- from its heavy-duty cast iron construction to its pale enamel interior, which makes it easy to judge browning (it's also easy to clean).
TRAVEL

In her On The Spot column on Aug. 31 ["Flier Frostbite"], Catharine Hamm describes sitting on a flight listening to Motown sounds of the '70s: "You're doing nothing but losing body heat and killing brain cells with bad music." That kisses off landmark albums by Marvin Gaye and Stevie Wonder and such classic singles as Diana Ross' "Ain't No Mountain High Enough," the Temptations' "Papa Was a Rollin' Stone" and the Commodores' "Easy." I'm glad Hamm is a travel writer and not a music critic.
