Kupchak, a former Laker player who joined the front office after his retirement in 1986, would not discuss specifics of his new deal, but it is believed to be for five or six years.

County Executive Officer Jan Mittermeier warned supervisors two weeks ago that their intent to separate El Toro planning and place it under their direct control would violate her contract, forcing her to leave the job she's held since 1995.

The packing boxes have arrived. Studio executive VP Danielle Lanford has lost more than her $250,000-a-year job. Lanford already misses the Hockney print on the wall.

The reason: She could never have afforded the decorator.
