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.

The NBA players' union and the team owners are far apart in their labor dispute, having failed to strike a compromise in two years of on-and-off bargaining. Their latest meeting, a two-hour session Friday afternoon at a Beverly Hills hotel, was the first since November. It appeared to produce no meaningful progress toward a new collective bargaining agreement that would prevent a potential lockout after the old one expires June 30. "I'm going to tell my guys to prepare for a lockout," Billy Hunter, executive director of the NBA Players Assn.

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."

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. The scenario sounds familiar to Robert Kraft, who purchased the New England Patriots in 1994 after years of cheering from the stands.

Owners have filed class-action lawsuits against Audi and related firms.

When investor Izek Shomof and his family bought the faded Hayward Hotel in downtown Los Angeles, it was home to hundreds of low-income residents, many living alone in single-room units. He decided to keep the building as a residential hotel, so the city didn't require him to perform seismic retrofitting to make it better able to withstand a major earthquake. The story was different for an office building the Shomofs bought down the block on Spring Street, which they converted into upscale lofts for artists and professionals.
