For anyone who grew up when TV and movie heroes tended to be cowboys rather than secret agents or Ninja Turtles, Rhino Records' "Songs of the West" is a treasure chest of musical memories. Accompanied by a lavishly illustrated 60-page booklet, the four-disc box set, produced by James Austin, is a celebration of songs in the heroic cowboy tradition--from records by screen idols Gene Autry and Roy Rogers to themes from such popular shows as "Gunsmoke" and "The Rifleman."

Early prison releases of the kind ordered by a federal court panel pose no threat to public safety, according to experts who testified on the matter the last time it came up in California. In those 2009 hearings, five experts on crime, punishment and prisons told the court that allowing inmates with good behavior to shorten their prison terms by several months has little, if any, effect on crime in the community. "There is no difference in recidivism rates by length of stay," James Austin, a Washington-based corrections consultant, testified at the time.
