A Glendale man faces up to seven years in prison after pleading guilty in a “sextortion” case in which he targeted 350 women and coerced them into showing him pictures of them nude. Karen “Gary” Kazaryan, 27, pleaded guilty this week to one count of identity theft and one count of unauthorized access to a protected computer. Prosecutors said Kazaryan hacked into the Facebook, Skype and email accounts of victims and changed their passwords, locking them out of their own online accounts.

Oops! I almost missed it. I am referring to Patt Morrison's May 30 column. I do like many of the things you are doing with redesigning the paper, but don't overdo it by eliminating pictures of the columnists. We longtime readers have become accustomed to responding to pictures of our favorite columnists and I, for one, miss them. Keep it interesting for the people who live here. Put the pictures back. Please! Bob Brach Desert Hot Springs

Don Cravens used to make his living by the shutter of his camera. Today he is more likely to be concerned with the shutters of a "desirable residence." The one-time Life magazine photographer has become a real estate broker. He is not one of the big boys in Beverly Hills. He has a relaxed, satisfactory business in Reseda. Cravens has virtually retired from press photography. But he still gets royalties from some of his famous pictures, which are reproduced again and again.

Additional observations have ruled out the chance that a recently discovered asteroid, believed to be about 1,300 feet long, could hit Earth in 2029, NASA scientists said this week. Last week, asteroid 2004 MN4 had been given a small chance of hitting Earth, based on observations this month and in June. Spacewatch Observatory near Tucson found faint pictures of the asteroid in images dating to March 15.

Redondo Beach Mayor Barbara Doerr wants professional and amateur shutterbugs to go out and take pictures of the city and its people on March 20. The 10 best pictures taken that day will be entered in a contest sponsored by the U. S. Conference of Mayors and could be used in a book called "A Day in the Life of America's Cities." Doerr said that the project especially wants photos that show "an imaginative exploration of the full range of Redondo's life."
