About 200,000 select Frigidaire and Kenmore Elite smooth-top electric ranges are being recalled because the heating elements are not properly controlled by the switches and settings, causing ranges to turn on spontaneously, fail to turn off and fail to heat to the specified temperature. The company has received 126 reports of incidents, including four reports of minor burns and two reports of minor property damage. The ranges were sold by national chains including Sears and independent stores around the country from June 2001 to August 2009.

LAS VEGAS - Wielding signs and slogans, several hundred demonstrators rallied Monday to support beleaguered Nevada cattle rancher Cliven Bundy after authorities began to seize his cattle from federal land. Protesters had responded to an alert that promised: "Range war begins at the Bundy ranch at 9:30 a.m. We're going to get the job done!" Federal officials say Bundy is illegally running cattle in the 600,000-acre Gold Butte area, habitat of the federally protected desert tortoise.

Can a New Yorker help an Angelo navigate the maze of local home service providers? Elizabeth Franklin thinks so, having taken on the challenge with her latest Franklin Report, a Zagat-like guide for home improvement services. Two years ago, the former investment banker launched her first guide for New York after having experienced firsthand the difficulty of finding the right people to renovate her family's Manhattan residence. Last year, Franklin and her staff did another for Chicago.

Candidates hoping to succeed Los Angeles County Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky addressed a range of chronic challenges facing the county board Thursday evening and offered different prescriptions for reforming the governing panel. Meeting in their third debate, the candidates agreed that the county needs to build more supportive housing for the homeless to reduce the number of people living on the street. They also voiced support for initiatives to break up bureaucratic "silos" separating agencies and making it harder to deliver healthcare to the needy and help for families in the troubled foster care system.

Most of the signs for visitors to the Medicine Bow National Forest in southeast Wyoming are like those greeting people at most forests, with the requisite rules about camping, fires and vehicle use. But on a section of Medicine Bow between Cheyenne and Laramie, visitors see an additional sign -- warning them not to pick up metal objects that could be unexploded military ordnance. From 1879 until 1961, when the U.S.
The American military, the third-largest landowner in the United States, is looking for a few more good acres--and a few less bases. It is no simple contradiction. As they prepare to close or scale back some 70 military bases, Pentagon officials also say more open land is needed for realistic training with weapons that travel faster and see farther. The net result? Little change in the number of military acres, but a subtle shift away from population centers to large military reservations tucked away from the rest of America.

Your article, "The High Cost of Housing" (Oct. 1), properly identified the high cost of land as the culprit. That answer, however, merely raises another question: Why does land cost so much here? Land prices reflect supply and demand. Limits on the supply side of the relationship distinguish Southern California from other areas and explain much of the differential. Because of traffic congestion, commuting ranges--the distances that one can travel in a given time during rush hours--rank among the lowest anywhere.

I am saddened when I hear so many people say they don't like poetry, but I understand ("A Poet's Paradise, for Better or for Verse," by Rick Wartzman, From First and Spring, Aug. 27). If the public were exposed to less complicated poems, many people might develop an appreciation for truly great poetry. I find it strange that music ranges from opera to country and that prose ranges from great literature to comics, but most poetry--if it is to rate publication--must be so "deep" that it is opaque to the average person.

SEOUL - - North Korea test-launched two medium-range ballistic missiles early Wednesday in violation of U.N. Security Council resolutions, officials said. The South Korean military said the missiles were launched just after 2:30 a.m. and flew for a little more than 400 miles. The U.S. State Department said the two missiles flew "over North Korea's land mass and impacted in the Sea of Japan. " It appeared that North Korea did not issue maritime warnings about the launches, the department said.

Federal biologists clad in waders and armed with long-handled nets this week moved hundreds of red-legged frog eggs from a San Fernando Valley stream to carefully selected wetlands 10 miles away in the first attempt to expand the threatened species' range in Southern California. Five hundred eggs transported from the Upper Las Virgenes Canyon Open Space Preserve to the Santa Monica Mountains are expected to hatch any day. When they do, they will reintroduce red-legged frog tadpoles to historic haunts that are free of predatory fish, snails and crayfish that could tear them apart.

The Lakers are destined to have a high pick in June's NBA draft, but the franchise won't know where it isĀ  picking until the draft lottery on May 20. One of the top prospects in the draft, Kansas center Joel Embiid, received some disappointing news on Monday. According to the Associated Press, Embiid has a stress fracture in his lower back, which will knock him out of the Big 12 tournament and could sideline him for the first week of the NCAA tournament. Assuming he suffers no setbacks, the Jayhawks may need to survive a couple of rounds without their starting center.

In his classic tome "The Rest Is Noise: Listening to the Twentieth Century," critic Alex Ross compares Minimalism to driving a car "across empty desert, the layered repetitions in the music mirroring the changes that the eye perceives - road signs flashing by, a mountain range shifting on the horizon, a pedal point of asphalt underneath. " Think of the Los Angeles Philharmonic's Minimalist Jukebox festival, then, as a Mojave roadside diner where the menu changes constantly and there's always some unexpected disc spinning hypnotically on the turntable: John Adams' "Naive and Sentimental Music," Steve Reich's "Vermont Counterpoint" or perhaps "Autobahn," the robotic road-trip chamber work by post-human electro-pioneers Kraftwerk.

Taking to heart the adage, "If at first you don't succeed, try and try again," Anaheim Canyon High kept launching three-point shots at Honda Center on Saturday in the Southern Section 2AA boys' basketball championship game against Westlake Village Westlake. The Comanches made only two of 14 three-point shots in the first half, but Coach Nate Harrison didn't tell his players to stop firing away. They made eight of 13 in the second half and defeated Westlake, 71-54. Point guard Anthony Ballestero scored 20 points and junior Nick Anderson had 20 points and 16 rebounds.

Gov. Jerry Brown enjoys a unique position that no California governor has been in for 68 years. He is a virtual shoo-in for reelection. That gives him an extremely rare opportunity to rise above conventional political rhetoric and open a substantive dialogue with voters about the state's future direction. In a cakewalk, there's little risk of tripping. A California governor hasn't had such an opening since immediately after World War II. In 1946, Republican Earl Warren won both major parties' nominations and was reelected in November with nearly 92% of the vote.

Regarding Charlene Stevens' statement about Blanche the Wonder Dog: Blanche is in fact a yellow Labrador retriever. The dog she refers to is not a golden Labrador retriever. It is simply a golden retriever, and while it is a long-haired dog, it is not always red in color. It ranges from blonde to red-gold. If she is going to make a statement, she should be correct in her facts. JANICE PORTER, Canoga Park

TEMPE, Ariz. -- Mike Trout wore a million-dollar smile Wednesday. It was a good day for him and the Angels, with the anticipation of a much better day in the very near future. The Angels signed Trout to a one-year, $1-million contract, avoiding the rancor of the renewal process and setting the stage for agreement on a long-term extension. Trout's salary is the highest for a one-year deal with a player not yet eligible for salary arbitration. The previous record of $900,000 was shared by Albert Pujols (2003)

SOCHI, Russia - What will be the secret to future Olympic success for the extreme-sports crowd? That's easy. Just keep adding new events and the medal count for U.S. snowboarders and freestyle skiers will probably stay at a high level. Setbacks in Sochi were offset by the new kids on the slopestyle rail and freeski halfpipe. There were opportunities for eight more gold medals that were not there in Vancouver in 2010. FRAMEWORK: Best images from Sochi And the United States took terrific advantage of the expanded program.
