A man's body was found in a riverbed in Pico Rivera on Thursday morning, but it was not immediately clear how he died or whether foul play was involved.

The body was found in the bushes on the bank of the river, he said. Sheriff's detectives were on scene awaiting the coroner and the man has not yet been identified, Smith said.

When Nancy Ebsen was growing up in the early 1930s in Winnetka, Ill.--a plush northern suburb of Chicago--her mother used to take outings with some of her suburban women friends and their children at the Women's Athletic Club in the city. When gossip time arrived, the children were sent off to do their own thing.

Margaret Tante Burk, a businesswoman, publicist and book enthusiast who co-founded one of the country's largest literary lunch groups, died Oct. 6 in Los Angeles of natural causes, her son, Harry, said. She was 93. For 30 years, until 2007, Burk ran Round Table West with business partner Marylin Hudson, hosting authors as varied as Maya Angelou, Walter Cronkite, Ray Bradbury, Jane Russell and Gloria Steinem. Inspired by New York's legendary Algonquin Round Table of the 1920s, their version was a lively and sophisticated affair, blending Pulitzer Prize winners, first-time authors and venerable Hollywood stars at thrice-monthly meetings held at elegant venues, from the Beverly Wilshire Hotel to Newport Beach's Balboa Bay Club.

Kiki Ebsen can remember when being her father's daughter made her the most popular girl inschool. Some three decades later, she says it sometimes makes her the object of curiosity. Jed Clampett's daughter playing keyboards for Chicago, Al Jarreau and Belinda Carlisle? Barnaby Jones' youngest girl fronting her own band and writing her own songs?

This week Universal Studios released "The Little Rascals," a multimillion-dollar remake of the scruffy kid series that has charmed the world since its birth in 1922. This "Rascals" is remarkably faithful to the Hal Roach originals, right down to Alfalfa's cowlick, Darla's feminine mystique, Froggy's croak and the circle around Petey's eye. Even some of the original locations have been used, with filming in Burbank neighborhoods unchanged since the '20s and '30s.

Fess Parker, whose star-making portrayal of frontiersman Davy Crockett on television in the mid-1950s made him a hero to millions of young baby boomers and spurred a nationwide run on coonskin caps, died Thursday. He was 85. Parker, who played another pioneer American hero on television's "Daniel Boone" in the 1960s before becoming a successful Santa Barbara hotel developer and Santa Ynez Valley winery owner, died of complications from old age at his home near the winery, said family spokeswoman Sao Anash.
