Under a proposal that was passed upon second reading last week by the City Council, the Planning Commission will increase its efforts to advise residents of developments proposed for their neighborhoods. The revisions in the commission's notification guidelines were prompted by complaints from neighborhood activists that they sometimes do not know of development plans until they have already won city approval. When dealing with large projects--more than 45 feet in height, more than 100,000 square feet in floor area and with a seating capacity of more than 500 people--the commission will send notices to property owners within a 500-foot radius of the proposed development site rather than within a 300-foot radius, as now required.

A bustling community of dog parks, gastropubs and historic lofts where people actually walk to work? That's hardly the typical depiction of Los Angeles, at least in the movies. Yet that is precisely the unconventional image of L.A. that emerges in the upcoming romantic comedy "About Last Night," a remake of the 1986 film starring Rob Lowe, Demi Moore, James Belushi and Elizabeth Perkins that explored the world of dating among four singles. Though the original movie was based on a David Mamet play set in Chicago, the contemporary remake joins the 2009 film "(500)

A proposed smoking ban in outdoor dining areas is back before the City Council after months of deliberation. Introduced in mid-2008, the ordinance would bar customers from lighting up within a 10-foot radius of outdoor seating areas at restaurants and food courts. Under the current draft, smoking would also be prohibited within a 40-foot radius of mobile food trucks and refreshment kiosks. The rules would exempt bars, nightclubs for the 18-and-older crowd, and venues closed to the public for private events.

State police followed trained dogs through the brush Friday in an area of southeastern Massachusetts where five bodies, four identified as women, have been found alongside highways since July. Authorities suspect that a serial killer may be responsible because the decomposed remains were found in a 6- to 8-mile radius, in dense woods within 25 feet of Interstate 195 and Route 140.

Re "Rocketdyne Report a Beginning," Ventura County editorials, Nov. 21. This sad beginning proves once again that the fox can't be trusted to guard the henhouse! The report by the federal Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry finding no link between the Rocketdyne / Boeing Santa Susanna Field Laboratory pollution and surrounding community health problems (cancer clusters) is shocking! However, ATSD chose not to do independent studies but rather to accept without question Rocketdyne's version of data that may have nothing to do with reality!

Thomas Curwen did an excellent job capturing the sights, sounds and feeling--both emotional and physical--of Tamco Steel in Rancho Cucamonga ("Steelyard Blues," Aug. 4). He was less diligent in his devotion to realism when he ignored another sense: smell. While living in Rancho Cucamonga before Kaiser Steel closed, we only had a few days a year (if the wind was right) when there was an unpleasant odor. People settle between Pomona and San Bernardino for the quality of life here. I then moved to Fontana about the same time that Tamco Steel was established in Rancho Cucamonga.

One of the best ways I know to add some real visual interest to any room is to throw your house a curve. Instead of the usual right-angle joint between walls, build in a nice, gentle arc. The basic procedure is pretty simple. Cut a pair of curved top and bottom plates out of three-quarter inch plywood. Fasten these to floor and ceiling, then nail in a series of ordinary studs between them as shown in the sketch, and then cover them with drywall.

Regarding articles on North Hollywood redevelopment, Jan. 30-31. Considering that the original Community Redevelopment Agency plan was overreaching, it isn't a failure that reality has fallen short of its goals. We don't need a hotel and five eight-story office buildings. Neither do we need to add greatly to the density of apartment units that already exist within a two-mile radius. What we do need is a lower-profile, serviceable business and entertainment strip that functions similarly to and complements Ventura Boulevard in Studio City.

We live in a contradictory age, when city slickers pay a fortune to become weekend buckaroos herding cattle in the Wyoming outback, yet disdain red meat at the dinner table in favor of some pale bottom-trash fish with a sprig of parsley in its mouth. I'm sorry, Hopalong, but this won't do. If you seek the authentic western experience you had better be prepared to sink your canines into a serious chunk of bovine.

State agricultural inspectors have enacted a quarantine and are going door-to-door in a Hacienda Heights neighborhood in an effort to help save the state's $2-billion citrus industry and beloved backyard fruit trees from a disease that has wreaked havoc in Florida and Brazil. The sale of citrus trees is banned in a five-mile radius around the Los Angeles County neighborhood where Huanglongbing, or yellow dragon disease, was first detected last week, according to the California Department of Food and Agriculture.

Forget "The Real Housewives of Orange County. " The next reality TV show should be the Real High School Football Players from South Orange County. If you think Texas is serious about its football, come to the 10-mile radius that incorporates Mission Viejo, Tesoro and Santa Margarita high schools. From coaching to booster clubs to player commitment, it's an area where no one wants to settle for being second. "It's a different world out here," Tesoro Coach Brian Barnes said.

Physicists might have to rethink what they know about, well, everything. European researchers dropped a potential bombshell on their colleagues around the world Wednesday by reporting that sophisticated new measurements indicate the radius of the proton is 4% smaller than previously believed. In a world where measurements out to a dozen or more decimal places are routine, a 4% difference in this subatomic particle — found in every atom's nucleus — is phenomenally large, and the finding has left theoreticians scratching their heads in wonderment and confusion.

The little clinic rests along a graceful curve of Eagle Rock Boulevard also occupied by a karate studio, a barber and a smattering of modest houses, one with a basketball hoop. The building, marked only by a metal placard that says "Cornerstone," is unremarkable, by design. In the waiting room, patients sit on stylish lounge chairs, flipping through magazines. There are dark bamboo floors and walls painted in shades of blue, chosen to foster warmth and serenity.
