I loved the restaurant's name, a compact curve of a word. Its sign, five big letters rimmed in neon, hovered above the roof. I almost never saw the sign with its neon lit; my parents took me there for early summer dinners, and even by the time we left--father cleaning his teeth with a toothpick, mother carrying steak bones in a doggie-bag--the sky was still bright. Heat rippled off the cars parked along Hollywood Boulevard, the asphalt gummy from hours of sun.

Josh Carlisle, a 10-year-old with Down's syndrome, followed two dogs from his Springfield, Mo., yard into the Ozarks. For three days, as temperatures dipped into single digits, the dogs apparently kept the boy alive with their body heat. The dogs are "God's angels," said Josh's stepfather, Lynn Coffey. He and Josh's mother, Johnny Coffey, pledged to give the strays a new home.

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 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."

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.
