Eileen Winters, 84, comedian Jonathan Winters' wife of 60 years, died after a long battle with breast cancer Sunday evening at home in Montecito, said their son, Jay. The couple met at the Dayton Art Institute after World War II. In 1949, the year after they were married, Eileen encouraged her funny husband to enter an amateur talent show. "The first time I heard him talk," she later recalled, "my jaw began hanging open. Did he make up all those things by himself?"

DeAndre Daniels, a 6-foot-9 junior forward from Connecticut, announced Friday that he will forgo his senior season and enter the NBA draft while twins Aaron and Andrew Harrison of Kentucky said they have decided to play another year in college. Daniels, who starred at Woodland Hills Taft High, had stellar performances during the Huskies' run to the NCAA tournament title, averaging 16.7 points and 7.4 rebounds a game while shooting 48% from the field. UConn announced that junior guard Ryan Boatright, who averaged 12.1 points, 3.5 rebounds and 3.4 assists last season, would return for his senior season.

BEIJING - DMG Entertainment, the Beijing-based company that co-produced Hollywood films including "Iron Man 3" and "Transcendence," is in the process of going public on the Shenzhen Stock Exchange. The move will see DMG enter the exchange through a reverse takeover with meat-processing company Sichuan Gaojin Foods. The deal still needs regulatory approval. According to DMG and Sichuan Gaojin, the deal values DMG at $970 million. That's three times the value of Gaojin at the end of 2013.

Contrary to Richard Showstack's Jan. 31 letter regarding our entry into World War II, the liberals, progressives, leftists and Democrats were adamant that we intervene. Opposition was led by the so-called America Firsters, led by the radical right wing. It was only after the bombing of Pearl Harbor that we were free to enter the war. In the meantime, we provided what help we could through the Lend-Lease program. Ann Bien Anaheim

Regarding your Aug. 6 editorial ("Keep Open a Window to Police"): "detaining illegal aliens who had committed no crime"? The last time I looked, it was a crime to enter this country without permission and proper papers. This is why those who enter without permission are called illegal aliens--they are here illegally, having broken federal law in the process. DUNCAN McCARTHY San Diego

Nowhere in the article on the reduced attendance at Yosemite (July 15) do you mention the outrageous $20 fee, merely to enter the park. Perhaps people are going elsewhere because they are upset about having to pay so much money to see something they already own. DOUGLAS E. WELCH

As an amateur composer, I concur with Chris Pasles' observations in "Not Taking It Sitting Down" (Jan. 9), but wish he took the discussion further. Perhaps the accompanist in many cases is treated as "second class" because the piano part is such. If accompanists do not want to be sidelined, then perhaps they should enter into agreements where for part of the program they perform solo! It doesn't have to detract from the singer or instrumentalist. Imre Sutton Fullerton

In your "Anti-Immigrant Sentiment Protested" article of Dec. 10, you only once stated that the two major groups trying to bring the border problem to attention in Washington, D.C., are concerned about "illegal immigration," not those who do the paperwork and wait in line like other honest citizens of all nations of the world. I give "open arms" to any immigrant who enters this country through the border checkpoints for people, autos, aircraft or ships. Anyone entering this country illegally, I support giving the chance to plead his or her case to the government as to why he or she had to enter the country illegally.

Colorado junior guard Spencer Dinwiddie, who helped the Buffaloes open the season with a 14-2 record and a victory over highly regarded Kansas before he sustained a season-ending knee injury, has announced that he will forgo his senior season and enter the NBA draft. Dinwiddie, a 6-foot-6 swing player who helped Taft High in Woodland Hills win the 2011 L.A. City Section championship, averaged 14.7 points, 3.8 assists, 3.1 rebounds and 1.5 steals a game last season after averaging 15.3 points, 3.0 assists, 3.2 rebounds and 1.3 steals as a sophomore.

WASHINGTON - Netflix Inc. and other Internet companies may soon be able to pay for a faster road online for streaming movies and other content into customers' homes, raising concerns about who ultimately may end up with the bill. The nation's top telecommunications regulator, breaking with his agency's long-standing position, will propose new rules that would allow broadband network owners to sell a high-speed toll road for content providers, the Federal Communications Commission said Wednesday.

Comprehensive immigration reform is probably dead for yet another year, the victim - once again - of a dysfunctional Congress that can't even reach agreement on the things it agrees on. There is nothing President Obama can do about that, although if therapy were available for political relationships, there'd be a referral waiting to be made. In the meantime, the president still has to administer immigration laws as they exist, and he reportedly is considering dropping his opposition to bond hearings for detained undocumented immigrants.

She's the star of television's "New Girl" series, She & Him singer, creative director and a red-carpet standout. Now, Zooey Deschanel is adding fashion designer to her considerable list of talents, with a new collection of dresses for Tommy Hilfiger that hit Hilfiger and Macy's stores last week. Deschanel's distinctive quirky-preppy-feminine style - on-screen, on red carpets and in real life - is what attracted Hilfiger to her. "It's unusual and spirited. She doesn't take herself too seriously, which is nice," he says.

WASHINGTON - On Monday, if all goes according to plan, I'll be lining up at the start of the Boston Marathon. Let's just say this up front: I probably shouldn't be. I signed up last September, but over the last few months, training season, I've been fighting one of those frustrating injuries that just would not come around. Figuring for weeks that it was just a bad hamstring, I stubbornly dragged my bad leg like a piece of wood over snow and black ice, all through a relentless, miserable Northeast winter.

Art aficionados planning to attend the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books this weekend will be able to watch artists create works live on the USC site as well as hear the many assembled writers. Artists' Row, a new feature at the festival, will house six artists who specialize in various media as they create pieces guided by the festival's theme, “Inspire Your Fire.” The artists will work throughout the weekend at the gathering at the University of Southern California; their pieces are expected to be finished by the end of the day on Sunday.
Arming themselves with more statistics that they say demonstrate the need for a commercial airport at the El Toro Marine Corps Air Station, county planners Wednesday released a new aviation forecast suggesting that passenger demand in the region will nearly double by 2020. In unveiling the findings, the county's aviation experts said they need to rely on their own information to ensure accuracy when they draw up the airport master plan, scheduled to be completed in the fall of 1999.

Reading is such an improbable idea -- a miracle, really. Yet simple squiggles on a page, arranged just so, can convey ideas that change the way we think or introduce to us characters we love for a lifetime. In celebration of reading -- and of this weekend's Los Angeles Times Festival of Books -- we asked four readers (who also happen to be writers) to celebrate books that mattered in their lives. In 1975, when I was young, I went to hear James Baldwin speak. Afterward, I waited in a long line and finally got to stand before him. I told him that his book "Giovanni's Room" had made me want to be a writer.

Joining this spring's bumper crop of L.A.-area mega estates for sale is Liongate, entering the fray priced at $65 million. Other Westside contenders include the $135-million Beverly House, Jamie McCourt's $55-million home and Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen's $50-million moated residence. Although two lion statues still stand at one of the gates, the reworked 1938 mansion in Bel-Air has dropped the plural from its former Lionsgate name. Singer Kenny Rogers, who sold the estate in 1983 for $5.8 million, is credited with placing the lions outside the gate.
