Listening to the calm, distinctly British speech of Don Brown, you might not believe that this mild-mannered 23-year-old is the same guy whose spectacular skateboard tricks won him the title of 1989 World Freestyle Champion. But seeing him perform a few of his flips, handstands and other tricks will quickly clear up any doubts.

Removing intoxicated drivers from Burbank streets may be the only thing that can save the two modest, one-story houses at the intersection of Buena Vista and Vanowen streets from further damage. That was the assessment Monday of city officials analyzing an accident at the intersection last weekend. A man who police believe was intoxicated died in the Saturday night crash when his car slammed into a lane divider and catapulted him through the kitchen wall of one of the houses.

The president of NBCUniversal's Telemundo network is stepping down, clearing the way for the company to make sweeping changes to its Spanish-language media operation. NBCUniversal said Tuesday that Don Browne, Telemundo's leader for six years, will retire from the company June 3 — the eighth anniversary of his arrival at Telemundo. The company plans to name a new Telemundo president within a few months. Browne, who turns 68 next month, becomes the latest high-level veteran to leave in the wake of Comcast Corp.'s takeover of NBCUniversal.

After more than 20 years of writing Thanksgiving turkey recipes, I thought I had seen it all. And then came the "Judy Bird." Inspired by the chicken-cooking technique of my friend Judy Rodgers, chef and owner at San Francisco's Zuni Cafe, it couldn't be simpler: You just salt the turkey a few days in advance, give it a brisk massage every so often to redistribute the salt, and then roast it. The results are phenomenal.

Whether it's their first Bonne Bell Lip Smackers or playing dress-up with their mothers' lipstick, many girls start experimenting with makeup early. For tweens and teens, one of the rituals of back-to-school time is the fight with Mom over what is and isn't age- and school-appropriate. And, yes, that discussion is starting earlier. Though women ages 18 to 64 are using less makeup, tween girls (ages 8 to 12) are using more, according to a new report from market research firm the NPD Group.

Of all the items up for sale at the Jackie Kennedy Onassis auction, the one that impressed me the most was Lot 755: a set of golf clubs in a red and black bag with the initials "JFK" monogrammed on the outside. The item sold for $772,500, and the buyer was Arnold Schwarzenegger, an avid restaurant owner. Since I don't play golf, I couldn't tell if Arnold got a bargain or not. So I called around to friends who are crazy about the sport.
