Despite intensive lobbying by gay rights advocates, a student-dominated board at UC Riverside on Thursday recommended that Carl's Jr. be allowed to negotiate for a fast-food operation on the new campus commons. The action by the Commons Board of Governors capped a months-long campus debate over the political philosophy of the Anaheim-based chain's chief executive, Carl Karcher, whose longstanding support of conservative causes and politicians was termed "homophobic" by critics.

Mayor Sonny Bono is selling his namesake Italian restaurant and tennis club that, four years ago, inspired his entry into local politics. "A restaurant is a full-time job, and so is politicking," explained Bono, who has been the owner of Bono's Restaurant on Indian Avenue since 1985 and mayor since 1988.

A dapper dresser dubbed the "Yuppie Robber," who police believe has held up three yogurt shops, apparently has expanded his culinary targets. A man wearing the Yuppie Robber's trademark trench coat and fedora robbed a sandwich shop, said Riverside County Sheriff's Sgt. Patrick McManus. Investigators believe the same man robbed yogurt shops in nearby Murrieta and Lake Elsinore. "He went from desserts to the main meal," McManus said.

Juan Guerrero takes orders at Burger King in Santa Ana. Higher education to him means management training at the fast-food chain, and Guerrero, a slight man of 19 with an explosive smile, has his sights set on "big money." "My teachers used to say, 'What are you going to do? Go flip burgers for a living?' " Guerrero says, pausing to wipe down the condiment bar. He stoops to pick up a wadded napkin on the floor and wipes the side of the trash can on his way back up.
