When Sean "Stanley" Leary's friends heard he'd gone missing in Utah's Zion National Park, they drove hundreds of miles to help. Leary was well-known in the tight-knit world of mountain adventurers. At Yosemite National Park, he was an old hand, with more than 50 ascents of El Capitan under his belt - including a record-setting 2 1/2-hour scramble up a 2,900-foot wall that demands several days from seasoned climbers. He explored new routes up peaks in the Arctic and in Antarctica and was an ardent BASE jumper - an adventure enthusiast who leaps off mountains and other high places.

Kurtwood Smith turned the image of the sitcom dad on its ear in the raucous Fox sitcom "That '70s Show" as Red Forman, the tough-nosed war vet father of Eric (Topher Grace). Red was the antithesis of such sweater-clad warm-and-fuzzy TV dads as Ozzie Nelson on "The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet" and Bill Cosby on "The Cosby Show. " In fact, Red was more Tasmanian devil than teddy bear. He loved his power tools, drinking beer, hunting and fishing. Red was known for his pungent put-downs of his son: "What are you going to put on your resume?

The practice of using flaps of tissue from both the forehead and cheek to reconstruct a severed nose was begun in ancient India, where facial disfigurement served as a form of punishment, according to Dr. Robert X. Murphy, president elect of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons . "They were very far advanced in using the forehead skin to refashion a semblance of a nose," Murphy said.

LeBron James knows that what's in the best interest of the NBA is usually in his best interest, which probably is why he complied with the league's request to wear a clear mask to protect his broken nose Saturday night rather than the cooler-looking black one he wore Thursday. No need for the Miami Heat forward to thumb his nose at the NBA, which prefers that players wear clear masks and goggles when protecting their faces and eyes. "It's not a league rule, but it's the league's request that you don't wear the black one," James told reporters before a 112-98 victory over the Orlando Magic in Miami on Saturday.

Reports of the demise of clowns in America might be as exaggerated as the expressions on their brightly painted faces and the oversized shoes on their feet. "There is no shortage," said World Clown Assn. Vice President Bob Neil, emphasizing each word. "If there were fewer clowns, I'd be a rich man. " On Wednesday, a story from the Daily News in New York declared the advent of a national clown shortage as those seemingly ageless faces under all the makeup start to wrinkle.

Squatting next to his quarry, the dog's eyes locked onto an athletic blond woman who was approaching cautiously. Her hand reached into her backpack and the Belgian Malinois rose slowly to his feet, his butterscotch eyes burning with intensity. As the woman brought out a length of knotted rope and leather, he lunged and snapped his powerful jaws around the tanned hide. He bared his teeth and began to pull, peddling backward. She set her heels and the two whirled around the Western Montana grassland on this crisp autumn morning in a ferocious game of tug of war. "This," said Megan Parker, "is his paycheck.

More than five decades ago, Arthur Rankin Jr., a producer-director working in stop-motion animation, had an idea to develop a family-oriented TV special around a popular Christmas song. He hoped a network would like it enough to run it two or three times. But when "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" aired in 1964, he and partner Jules Bass found they had a blockbuster - one that launched them into TV history as pioneers of the animated holiday special. Fifty years later, "Rudolph," with its catchy tunes and charmingly misfit characters, remains the longest-running Christmas TV special, "one of only four 1960s Christmas specials still being telecast," according to the Archive of American Television . The others are "A Charlie Brown Christmas," "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" and another Rankin-Bass creation, "Frosty the Snowman.
