Detectives investigating the slaying of Hollywood publicist Ronni Chasen have surmised from evidence that she was probably shot from another vehicle, perhaps an SUV, the mayor of Beverly Hills said. Mayor Jimmy Delshad said that although many questions remain unanswered, police believe Chasen's assailant fired into her passenger-side window from another vehicle and not from the street or a sidewalk. "Indications are [the shots] could have come from another car, higher up, maybe an SUV," Delshad said.

In his bid to become this city's first Iranian American mayor, Vice Mayor Jimmy Delshad was in danger Wednesday of losing his City Council seat altogether. After Tuesday's balloting, he held only a seven-vote lead over third-place finisher Steve Webb, with 892 provisional and absentee ballots to be counted Friday. Nancy Krasne received the most votes of the six candidates, with 2,486 votes. The top two finishers in the race gain seats on the five-member council.

The Beverly Hills City Council agreed Tuesday to review Mayor Jimmy Delshad's proposal that the city eliminate its pension fund investments in foreign companies operating in Iran. The proposal, designed primarily to back the state divestiture bill, AB 221, will be sent to a subcommittee to determine possible ramifications of its adoption, Delshad said.

Voters in 38 cities in Los Angeles County and one in Riverside County went to the polls Tuesday to decide more than 100 elected positions and a handful of ballot measures. Turnout was light. In Covina, voters defeated an extension of a 6% tax on their water, telephone, gas, trash and electricity bills. The measure would have brought in $5.5 million annually to fund general city services such as the fire and police departments.

With street protests raging in Iran, political activism is on the rise among Los Angeles' already vocal Iranian American community. Flag-waving demonstrators clad in the opposition movement's signature green have been a common sight outside the Federal Building in Westwood, and Iranian-language media is abuzz with debate. But when it comes to the three young American hikers being held in Iran on espionage charges the community has been decidedly silent. No large demonstrations, little conversation, virtually no push for action.

Say you want a "Revolution"? Enough viewers did on Monday to give NBC a much-needed burst of good news. An average of 11.6 million viewers tuned in to the premiere of "Revolution," NBC's sci-fi drama about a post-apocalyptic world that has mysteriously lost all battery and electric power. That number handed the network an easy victory in the 10 p.m. time slot. "Revolution" was the top-rated drama premiere on any network since the opening of the now-canceled "V" on ABC in 2009.

Along Westwood Boulevard south of Wilshire Boulevard -- a.k.a. "Tehrangeles" -- Iranian merchants on Friday had reason beyond the Persian New Year's holiday to shout out cheerful greetings to friends and customers. They also praised President Obama for extending an olive branch to the Iranian people and government, as he did in a speech to mark the start of the 12-day Nowruz holiday. "Somehow you have to break the ice," said Farhad Djavanshir, 58, manager of Flame restaurant.

Times might be tough, but you can still smell like money. The city of Beverly Hills and its partners plan to unveil three city-licensed perfumes Tuesday at a coming-out gala. With names like "Must Have" and "Iconic," the $120-a-bottle fragrances will feature the city's name and famous brown shield logo. Retail sales will begin in department stores in January, and if all goes well, an entire line of Beverly Hills-themed scents and skin care products will roll out in the next year or so. But don't worry.
