Los Angeles police officers gave an overwhelming thumbs up to a proposed contract that will grant them raises totaling 18% over four years, according to balloting that ended late Friday. Of almost 4,000 officers who voted, 94% approved the contract. The contract will cost taxpayers about $130 million, and does not require officers to give up any perks, as had previously been demanded by city negotiators.

Auctions combine the thrill of the hunt with the danger of being swallowed by the prey. Since buyers set the price, the events can be a bargain hunter's paradise. "People can get stuff dirt-cheap," says Larry Wilson, owner of L & L Auction in Canoga Park. How cheap? A box of old books went for $1 at one of Wilson's weekly auctions; two antique chairs brought $4 each; the winning bid on an old manual typewriter was $5; a stack of National Enquirers from the '70s was $10.
