The owners of two El Toro board and care homes for the elderly willfully violated state law by transferring a patient from one of the facilities to the other, one of the owners testified Thursday. But, said Ingrid Henshall, it was the only moral thing to do. Henshall, 52, took the stand on the second day of defense testimony during hearings to determine whether Love Haven I, owned by Henshall, and Love Haven II, owned by her son and daughter-in-law Mike and Karen Cabael, will remain closed.

Proponents call themselves an underground society of backyard chicken owners. Arizona authorities are squawking that they're just a bunch of code breakers. In recent months, hundreds of Phoenix-area chicken owners have faced nuisance and zoning violations after neighbors griped about odor and noise - clucking hens and crowing roosters. They say poultry poses a health risk and doesn't belong near homes, claims that chicken owners vehemently dispute. The clandestine chicken owners are accused of defying city zoning laws.

Red McCombs, the former owner of the San Antonio Spurs, was chosen as the Minnesota Vikings' new owner Thursday and will keep the NFL franchise in Minnesota. With a bid that blew away local favorite Glen Taylor, several other bidders and the 10 current owners, McCombs agreed to buy the Vikings for about $250 million. That was $50 million more than Tom Clancy's failed bid earlier this year, and about $30 million more than the offer turned in by Taylor.

There will be no more takeoffs for the Juan T. Trippe. The first 747 jetliner to ferry commercial passengers and a symbol of the golden age of air travel was demolished here Sunday as its owners gave up a frustrating decade-long attempt to make a profit from the mammoth piece of aviation history. "So, you've come to take part in the funeral," one of the owners, who asked that their names not be used, said to a bystander. After decades of flying to nearly every continent, the Trippe, named after Pan Am's founder, was bought in 2000 from a California airplane graveyard by the South Korean couple, who transformed it into an aviation-themed restaurant.

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.

The NFL and NFL Players Assn. participated in almost 10 hours of negotiations Tuesday ? their longest of 13 mediation sessions ? and emerged still far apart on their biggest issue: how to divide the league's $9 billion in annual revenue. Owners, who currently get $1 billion off the top before the remaining money is divided, are seeking an additional $1 billion to help cover such investments as new stadiums, emerging media opportunities and international initiatives. The players are resistant to changing the current system, and have been unyielding in asking owners to open their financial books.

Those much-maligned mischief makers with a badger's face and a weasel's body have been getting a bum rap, say a growing number of ferret fanciers. In fact, the smelly little relative of the European polecat, which was largely unwelcome in the United States until recent years, may be the hottest new pet of the '80s. The ferret fanciers have created a multimillion-dollar industry. "They're the ultimate pet," said Marcus Schneck, 29, of State College, who owns two ferrets.

USFL owners, angered and confused in the wake of a federal court jury's award of just $3 in damages from the NFL, will have to stand together when they meet today or the league could fold. Commissioner Harry Usher, whose league sought $1.69 billion in an antitrust action against the NFL, says he envisions owners taking one of three courses of action. They could cease operations, suspend them for one season or begin their fourth year of play--first in the traditional fall season.

The seven-acre Playa del Rey Stables has been ordered to leave its Culver Boulevard site, and the owners of some of the 90 horses boarded there say they may have to destroy their animals if new homes cannot be found. Summa Corp., which owns the land, last month sent an eviction notice that ordered the stables at 315 Culver Blvd. vacated by Sept. 1.

Ed Lynch, San Diego Padre farm director, poked his head into Joe McIlvaine's office, looking frantic. "Joe, you better get going," Lynch said, glancing at his watch to accentuate his point. "It's already after 6." "I know, I'll be there, Ed." "Joe, the party starts at 6:30, and it's a good 20-minute ride from here. You don't want to be late." "Don't worry, you go on ahead. I'll catch up with you there."
