The issue at the Wupatki National Monument near Flagstaff, Ariz., has been building since summer, when the Hopi requested permission to take eaglets for use in a religious ceremony.

Los Angeles Police Chief Bernard C. Parks on Monday proposed an innovative gun buyback program that would give owners tax breaks, instead of cash, for every gun turned in. The benefit of a tax credit program, police officials said, is that it could be implemented without having to provide a pot of money for the exchanges. Such a program, however, would require either federal or state legislation. Parks said he will discuss the proposal in more detail at today's Police Commission meeting.
