Nicholson voted to allow H & M Recreational Vehicle Storage at 4656 Lincoln Ave. to operate from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. during Daylight Savings Time.

Hilary de Vries' interview with Liam Neeson ("It Doesn't Hurt to Be a Hunk Too," March 7) makes me wonder, is she a New Yorker with an L.A. attitude, or were Neeson's remarks out of context? He does seem to be unduly involved with noses. "I don't seem to have one of those cute noses that everyone seems to have in L.A." Or looking down his broken nose and pretentiously commenting, "That comes with my repertory theater background." Well la de da! When the bucks roll in, I'm sure his tune will change.

By a unanimous vote, the Supreme Court has ruled that contract employees at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory must undergo the same background checks ? including questions about drug abuse and treatment ? that are required of government employees. The decision is defensible on the grounds of consistency, and such checks are a long-established feature of both public and private employment. But privacy advocates still have reason to cheer this decision. The court could have held that people have no right to withhold personal information from the government, but most of the justices declined to do so. Instead, in his majority opinion, Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr. assumed for the purposes of argument that Americans have a constitutional right to "informational privacy" that limits what the government can require of them.

Sunset Boulevard power lunches may never be the same: Come September, the National Enquirer plans to open an office on the Strip, almost directly across from Le Dome and Nicky Blair's, two of Hollywood's most prominent industry watering holes. Paparazzi already regularly stake out both spots. Now inquiring minds--and perhaps inquiring zoom lenses--will be just across the street. To better spy on celebs?

When the whole world is writing about someone like Michael Phelps, you tend to get a lot of overlap. If you've been following the Olympics by now, you probably know the basics: Phelps grew up just outside of Baltimore, and battled ADHD as a kid. He was raised mostly by his mother, Debbie, a middle school principal. You might feel as if you've heard those details hundreds of times by now. But that isn't everything you need to know about Phelps. In fact, here are some things you never knew. 1.

The potential threat that computers pose to privacy--and ultimately to freedom itself--has been fretted about as long as there have been computers, and Congress addressed this issue in the Privacy Act of 1974.

Naming a bike race Tour de Nez ("the nose tour" in French) makes about as much sense as naming a coffee house Deux Gros Nez (two fat noses). But it worked for Tim Healion, who in 1992 planned a street party to celebrate the seventh anniversary of his popular Reno espresso bar with, he says, "the silly stupid name that has nothing to do with anything" -- and then threw in a one-hour bike race to boot.

Neighbors are good for emergency cups of sugar, but nobody likes a snoop. A recent nationwide poll conducted by ServiceMagic.com, a website that provides names of pre-screened home-improvement and repair professionals, revealed that 64% of 1,100 people surveyed said their neighbors follow their lives too closely and that they have caught the culprits in the act. Further, four out of five said someone on their block "sees everything" going on.

Peppered with complaints about neighborhood eyesores, the Redondo Beach City Council ordered the city staff last year to draft a comprehensive property maintenance ordinance. But council members blanched when the proposal was unveiled Tuesday night and they found it would regulate everything from the pruning of trees to the placement of clotheslines. "I'm very nervous about this ordinance," said Councilman Terry Ward. "We don't want something that is Big Brother looking down everyone's throat."
