Tony Haywood got his start in business because of a lemon. His car broke down so often that he became expert at fixing it, especially his engine's turbocharger. After working in Los Angeles County's heavy-equipment maintenance department, he eventually decided to open his own shop selling rebuilt turbochargers. These days, national and international mail-order customers make up about 80% of Haywood's business, much of it generated by his Web site (http://www.a1turbo.com).

Leaning out her front door in Alhambra, Laura De La Fuente furrowed her brows at the vacant dirt lot across the street and threw her arms up in despair. Once, all the children on the block, including her 7-year-old son, Steven, played there, chasing one another, playing baseball and flying kites.

Calabasas' top planning official said Friday he's recommending that the city reject a joint application for a Burger King restaurant and auto service center on Las Virgenes Road.

Question: I have been a shareholder of Snap-on Inc. and am rearranging my portfolio. Is it worth keeping? Answer: There's more to this company, founded in 1920, than a traveling van emblazoned with its name and loaded with tools. A pioneer in interchangeable sockets and wrench handles that snap on, the company offers products and services in more than 150 countries. Franchisees operate more than 3,000 vans in the U.S. that regularly visit vehicle service technicians and shop owners.
