The United Auto Workers authorized its second strike against General Motors Corp. in less than a month Friday, warning of a walkout at the Lansing body plant. The "five-day letter" was received by the leading auto maker at 10 a.m., notifying the company that the 4,200 members of Local 602 will strike Sept. 25 unless issues are worked out, GM spokeswoman Linda Cook said.

Prime time's most controversial couple, Tom and Roseanne Arnold, took a trip to daytime last month. After several postponements, "General Hospital" viewers got to see the Arnolds March 22-24 in a story line that took Luke and Laura to an Atlantic City casino, where the Arnolds' characters, natch, could be found. Roseanne, who is a fan of "General Hospital," played Jennifer Smith, the daughter of crime figure Frank Smith (played by Susan Haskell).

"Love and Dishes: Scene-Stealing Recipes From Your Favorite Soap Stars," edited by Irene Krause Keene (Hearst Books, 1996; $16.95), seems to be another sign that old-fashioned Hollywood glamour now belongs to soap operas, whose stars don't disdain all the little things it obligates them to do. Somehow it's hard to imagine Brad Pitt or Emma Thompson giving out recipes.

General Motors prepared to close two more assembly plants Friday because of an 8-day-old strike at a GM parts plant here as marathon negotiations to end the walkout continued. The auto maker said it would close plants in Wilmington, Del., and Lansing, Mich., Friday because of a lack of parts. The plants join seven others that have already been shuttered. The supply shortage had already closed assembly plants in Oklahoma City; Wentzville, Mo.; Flint, Mich.; Baltimore; Orion Township, Mich.

Huntsville, Ala., set a record at 17, and Jacksonville, Fla., fell to a record 27, while Orlando, Fla., was a record 32. Lows were in the single digits and teens over parts of New England, the Mid-Atlantic, the Appalachians, Great Lakes, Ohio and Mississippi valleys.

A strike at a crucial General Motors Corp. parts plant threatened to spill over to a nearby car factory Friday and cause shortages at other GM facilities. General Motors was forced to halt production Friday at a Chevrolet Cavalier and Pontiac Sunbird facility due to a strike at its Lordstown, Ohio, parts plant. It was the second day GM was forced to halt production at one of its car plants in response to growing shortages of metal body panels and other parts.
General Motors is close to completing a deal with a Woodland Hills-based partnership to develop the abandoned GM assembly plant in Panorama City, a high-ranking City Hall official said Monday. The team includes Selleck Properties of Woodland Hills, a company whose partners include actor Tom Selleck, his father and two brothers, and Voit Cos., the firm that developed much of the Warner Center, the source said.

Chris Mancantel, who created the role of Curtis Alden on "Loving" in 1983, has returned to the show in his former role. Mancantel's scenes began airing on Dec. 3. His character is being held hostage in a cage by Dante (a.k.a. Joe), played by Thom Christopher. When Curtis returned the last time (he was played by Michael Lord, who was subsequently written out), he thought that while he was serving in the Gulf War he had killed Dante, the husband of Tess Wilder ( Catherine Hickland).

Women who have breast enlargements tend to drink more, have more sex partners and get pregnant younger, and are more likely to have abortions, use the pill and dye their hair--factors that researchers should consider when studying the health risks of breast implants, says a study in today's Journal of the American Medical Assn.
