A $7.5-million offer was placed on the bargaining table by National Hockey League owners Wednesday for post-career counseling and severance pay. The sum is one-half of what Alan Eagleson, executive director of the NHL Players Assn., had requested from the owners. "It's a start," Eagleson said following the second day of a three-day session between owners' and players' representatives delegated to come up with a contract to replace the one that expires Sept. 15.

SAN FRANCISCO - Sandwiched between rows of homes in the fog-kissed Mission Terrace neighborhood, Little City Gardens provides salad greens and fresh-cut flowers to local restaurants from what was once a weedy vacant lot. Like many of California's urban agriculture practitioners, however, Caitlyn Galloway is plagued by a key uncertainty: She is on a month-to-month lease with a landlord who must recoup the lot's steep property taxes and may soon...

The list of potential buyers for the Dodgers — should Major League Baseball or a divorce court force a sale — features all the usual suspects. Forbes 400 types who have amassed personal fortunes large enough to afford every sports fan's dream. That includes men such as Eli Broad and Tom Gores, who do not have much experience when it comes to owning a team.

A few dozen sympathizers called Friday to offer condolences to Robert and Mary Lee Burdett, whose dog, Dumpy, was shot and killed by a Fullerton police officer chasing a burglary suspect. "We had a lot of people call us that were appalled at our dog getting shot," Robert Burdett said. Many of the callers said, "That's the dumbest thing that that officer could have done." "Policemen will tell you, 'Get a dog, it will deter burglars,' " Burdett said. "That's fine, until they start shooting them."

Question: Our association board allows the manager to control all the homeowners association notices that owners are supposed to get. The manager picks and chooses who will receive notice of meetings, elections and other important issues. Sometimes she puts these vital notices in a locked glass case, way at the other end of our huge complex, takes a picture of them as proof the notices were put up, then orders the security guards to remove those same notices from the case after the snapshot.

Before launching a business, some people invest in market research and feasibility studies. Josh Spencer is not one of those people — otherwise he might never have opened his downtown L.A. used bookstore in December 2009, let alone moved it a few blocks away this month to a 10,000-square-foot space.

"I've always just done what I do, and it seems to work.
