Developers of a three-story condominium project under construction in Woodland Hills may have to tear off part of the roof to make the $7.5-million structure comply with zoning laws, Los Angeles officials said Thursday. But whether the building will actually have to be lowered won't be decided before June 6, when city planning commissioners discuss how the height should be measured, officials said. The height of the 24-unit condominium project has been debated since March, when neighboring homeowners complained that the hilltop structure is too tall to meet a 45-foot height restriction imposed on the site 10 years ago by the city.

Homeowner groups from areas spanning the Santa Monica Mountains are accusing the Los Angeles City Council of undercutting hillside building restrictions by allowing a Bel-Air home to exceed height limits by nearly 40%. "Little by little, they are dismantling" hillside development limits enacted three years ago, said Marian Dodge, president of the nonprofit Federation of Hillside and Canyon Assns. The latest flare-up in the long-standing battle over hillside construction, encompassing some of Los Angeles' priciest neighborhoods, centers on a home proposed for Bellagio Road in Bel-Air.

The taller a postmenopausal woman is, the greater risk she faces of developing cancer, according to a new study. In a paper published Thursday in the journal Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention, researchers concluded that a woman's cancer risk increased 13% with every 4 inches of height. The study is the latest of several to report an association between women's height and cancer, according to lead study author Geoffrey Kabat, a cancer epidemiologist at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York.

By now, "iCarly" fans are aware of the looming reality: The Nickelodeon teen sitcom will be wrapping its run after five seasons. The series, from Dan Schneider ("Drake & Josh," "Victorious"), broke new ground with the way it entwined the Internet and technology into its story about three friends who start up a Web show, speaking to a generation glued to their cellphones and laptops. It was a scheme that would prove beneficial. Early in its run, "iCarly" would outpace fictional teen queen "Hannah Montana" in the race for young viewers.
