Reuben Law, 106, Nevada's last surviving veteran of World War I, died in Carson City on Saturday after suffering a stroke. Born in Minnesota, Law was working at a Ford plant in Minneapolis when he joined the Army. He almost died en route to Europe when a flu outbreak killed more than 60 soldiers on his troop ship. In Europe, he shuttled wounded GIs to a military hospital in eastern France. He returned to Minnesota after the war and worked in landscaping.

Actor Paul Reubens, best known for his role as "Pee-wee Herman," pleaded guilty Friday to a misdemeanor obscenity charge and was placed on probation, court officials said. Both sides claimed victory in the plea bargain, in which prosecutors dropped more serious charges of child pornography against Reubens, 51. His plea was entered in court by his lawyer, Blair Berk. "This is considered an absolute victory," Berk said. City Atty. Rocky Delgadillo also counted the case as a triumph.

After establishing a successful series block on Sunday night with the female-driven dramas "Strong Medicine" and "The Division," Lifetime is expanding its original dramatic programming to Saturday evenings with two new hourlong shows. And just as one would expect from the cable network for women, both new series revolve around strong female characters.

Summer should be the time for throw-it-against-the-wall -and-see-if-it-sticks gonzo experiments on network TV. In theory, anyway. Find the next "Survivor" or "Millionaire" and--presto!--prime time as we know it changes forever, for better or worse. The drill by TV nabobs should be this: Find something that is so wacky or groundbreaking that audiences are forced to turn their weary eyes to the tube. It doesn't always happen that way, though.

Looking for Super Bowl serving ideas? These turkey Reuben sandwiches are easy enough to whip up during halftime. The traditional Reuben is piled high with corned beef, Swiss cheese and sauerkraut and slathered with Russian dressing. Our version is made with lean turkey pastrami, low-fat Swiss cheese and a Russian dressing made with low-fat mayonnaise. Accompany the sandwiches with big wedges of dill pickles and raw vegetables such as celery and carrot sticks.

Just because St. Patrick's Day falls midweek doesn't mean you can't cook up something to celebrate, even if you have a busy schedule. Instead of slow-cooking corned beef, pick up sliced corned beef and Swiss cheese from the deli and make these quick grilled Reuben sandwiches with Swiss chard, a pleasant change from the usual sauerkraut. The oven-fried potato chips, developed in The Times Test Kitchen by Mayi Brady, can be made in a snap if you have a mandoline or food processor.

Between Howard Stern on the radio, Jerry Springer on TV and Bill Clinton in the Oval Office, is there anything about sex we don't know? And, if there is, is there anybody left in America who is afraid to ask about it? Apparently the answer on both counts is yes, according to physician and psychiatrist David Reuben, who has updated his 1969 bestseller, "Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex but Were Afraid to Ask" (HarperCollins).

As Dilbert might put it, the performance-management task force offered input to the peer review study group, which sent its recommendation to the strategic planning committee, which compiled the final report. There was simply no way that cartoonists picking the year's top comic strip could merely toss names in a hat--and then draw the winner.
