James M. Beggs, the administrator of NASA, was indicted today along with three other present or former executives of General Dynamics Corp. on charges of trying to hide overrun losses on the Army's ill-fated Sgt.

In the spring we followed students in the Woodbury School of Architecture's Design/Build program as they created miniature cabins using components from store-bought sheds. This last semester, another set of students were given 10-by-10-foot sheds from Home Depot and CC&Rs (covenants, conditions and restrictions for building) from professors Jeanine Centuori and Sonny Ward. Teams also were given a theme - performance, music, games, therapy or dining - for each of five cabins, which will be used as part of a therapy program at the Shadow Hills Riding Club.

For the last eight years, radio station KYXY-FM (96.5) was known as the odd bird in local radio. Some local programmers likened it to a station you might hear in a small town in Iowa--a one-station town, where the goal is to please everyone, and where a little saccharine goes a long way.

It's getting close to crunch time, or D-day, at KABC-AM (790). In what clearly was part pep talk and part warning, Drew Hayes, the new program director, hosted a bagels-and-cream-cheese session two weeks ago at KABC with 40 or so talk hosts, producers and other personnel. No lox, he explained--the ratings didn't merit it. "We're going to be No. 1," Hayes told the staff. "Some of you will be here--and some bodies will fly out of here."

With an overload of programming, it sometimes gets confusing which events are carried on all-sports radio station KMPC and which are farmed out to sister station KLITE-FM (101.9). Thursday night, the UCLA-Washington game was on KLITE, the Clippers and Chicago Bulls on KMPC. KMPC General Manager Bill Ward said program director Len Weiner got together with the American Network Group, the UCLA rights-holders, and the Clippers before the season to work out a schedule where conflicts existed.
