It was a broken kitchen hood that started it all. First the hood, then the refrigerator, then the air-conditioning system. But rather than replace everything, ABC-Disney executive Jana Winograde and her husband, actor Todd Sandler, saw an opportunity to rethink the home in which they had been living for nine years. Daughters Dylan, 9, and Riley, 11, needed a space of their own. "Our kids were getting older," Winograde said. "They really had nowhere to be with their friends that was separate except their bedrooms.

June Squibb earned her first Oscar nomination Thursday at age 84. If she were to win in the best supporting actress category for her role in "Nebraska," she would make Academy Award history by becoming the oldest winner in any of the acting categories.

The tea had just arrived when "all hell broke loose. " It was as though someone picked up Canter's Deli and dropped it. Silverware, napkins and hot tea flew off Christopher Ducra's table and the restaurant went black before yellow emergency lights flickered on.

Fairfax Avenue was still undulating, and a long stretch of swinging power lines cast an eerie blue light.

In its bleakest days in the mid-1990s, Cherokee Inc. realized it had overlooked a key asset - its name. The Cherokee brand, which began as a shoe line in 1973, evolved into a Van Nuys clothing manufacturing company focused on women and juniors sizes. It moved its headquarters two years ago to Sherman Oaks. By the early 1990s, as discount retailers such as Target Corp., Wal-Mart Stores Inc. and Kmart started elbowing out more expensive department stores, Cherokee found itself struggling to maintain sales.
