A tiny Orlando, Fla., family entertainment center plans to add seven attractions over the next few years in a bid to become a small amusement park with a collection of new rides that rivals its better-known neighbors. Any of the new additions - from a pair of roller coasters to a trio of towering thrill rides to a quartet of water park slides - would be the envy of any regional theme park. PHOTOS: New rides coming to Fun Spot Orlando The $20-million investment will expand the Fun Spot Action Park located along Orlando's International Drive corridor from 5 to 15 acres in three stages: The first stage will add a wooden roller coaster, a Screamin' Swing thrill ride and a double-decker carousel by February 2013.

When members of the County Board of Supervisors first laid eyes on Edward Kienholz's "Back Seat Dodge '38," way back in 1966 at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, they saw pornography. Labeling the sculptural portrayal of a drunken, life-size couple making love in a truncated automobile "revolting," "blasphemous" and "dastardly," the supervisors charged that the scruffy artwork went "way beyond the limits of public decency" and strongly urged the museum to remove it.

Ted Stevens, the gruff and bullishly determined longtime former U.S. senator from Alaska, died in Monday's crash of a small plane near a small fishing town on Alaska's Bristol Bay, a family spokesman confirmed Tuesday. "The family has just been notified that he did not survive," said Mitch Rose, former chief of staff for Stevens, 86, who served 41 years in the Senate before being convicted on corruption charges and losing his seat in 2008. The charges were later dismissed because of prosecutorial misconduct.
