Cattle Rancher

Capt. Charles (Rick) Dinse has been named commanding officer of the Los Angeles Police Department's Hollywood Division. Dinse, a 24-year police veteran and a captain for five years, replaces Capt. Rick Batson, who retired last month to become a Missouri cattle rancher. Dinse, 48, has served in various field and staff assignments, including patrol, vice, internal affairs, training, traffic and in the office of the chief.
He is of an era when men rode the range, packed steel revolvers and toughed it out with nature, protected only by their wits and good fortune. The problem is that Larry Rosenbaum lives in a time of cell phones, digital recordings and television. Still, Rosenbaum has managed to carve out a niche for himself, creating a way of life that resembles the 1890s more than the 1990s. He doesn't own a television, uses a bedroll instead of a tent when camping and shuns matches in favor of steel and flint.

KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. - For decades this rural basin has battled over the Klamath River's most precious resource: water that sustains fish, irrigates farms and powers the hydroelectric dams that block one of the largest salmon runs on the West Coast. Now, one of the nation's fiercest water wars is on the verge of erupting again. New water rights have given a group of Oregon Indian tribes an upper hand just as the region plunges into a severe drought . Farmers and wildlife refuges could be soon cut off by the Klamath Tribes, which in March were granted the Upper Klamath Basin's oldest water rights to the lake and tributaries that feed the mighty river flowing from arid southern Oregon to the foggy redwoods of the Northern California coast.

Paula Kissinger, 97, mother of former Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger. She held the Bible at the 1973 White House ceremony in which her firstborn son assumed the country's highest Cabinet post. The German-born Paula Stern Kissinger was the family member who decided she, her husband and their two young sons should flee the Nazis after Adolf Hitler came to power. They emigrated to New York in 1940, and she remained in the same apartment in Manhattan's German-Jewish community until her death.

Lt. Gov. John Wayne Mixson, sworn in Saturday as Florida's 39th governor, entered office with a brief agenda. But, after all, he knew he would be in office only for the weekend. Mixson, a 64-year-old cattle rancher, accepted the reins of power from Gov. Bob Graham, a Democrat, who resigned three days early to become the state's junior U.S. senator at noon Saturday. "It's the shortest time, but it's just as high," Mixson said.

Millionaire cattle rancher Leonardo Subias, who is serving 10 years in prison for cocaine trafficking and is a suspect in the slaying of an American drug agent, was sentenced Monday to an additional three years in prison for jumping bail in 1980. Subias, 42, was sentenced to 10 years in prison Aug. 31 for selling about 2.2 pounds of cocaine to an undercover officer in Monterey Park in April, 1980. When that indictment was returned in 1980, Subias posted bail and fled.
