Candidates competing to be the next Los Angeles County assessor tangled in their first public debate Sunday over tax policy and the best way to reform the office after a scandal that led to the arrest of the current assessor. But they were largely united in their criticism of one candidate who was not present: Jeffrey Prang, a West Hollywood councilman and special assistant in the assessor's office, who is so far the front-runner in fundraising and endorsements. Twelve candidates are running to replace Assessor John Noguez, who is on leave and fighting charges that he had property values reduced for campaign contributors.

She had me at privyet . I had just delivered a talk in Romania on Jewish-Mormon relations (a niche topic, to be sure) at a church in Bucharest, and standing before me was Florina, a raven-haired beauty who greeted me in Russian after learning we had both lived in Moscow. Then she switched to English, which she had acquired as an au pair in London. I was a never-married bachelor in my early 40s and had begun to doubt that Miss Right and I would ever cross paths, much less during a speaking tour of Eastern Europe.

CARACAS, Venezuela -- Interior Minister Miguel Rodriguez Torres of Venezuela confirmed Wednesday that West Hollywood filmmaker Timothy Tracy had been expelled from the country earlier in the day, six weeks after he was arrested on espionage charges. Tracy was put on an American Airlines flight bound for Miami. The documentary filmmaker was arrested April 24 by operatives in the SEBIN intelligence agency on accusations of "gathering information" including video and photographic images for what Torres described as the April Connection, an alleged conspiracy to overthrow the government.

You'd think giving away books would be an easy thing to do, but Melissa Eggerling tries to put a lot of creativity and a bit of theater into the act. On Wednesday, Eggerling will be one of 800 Southern Californians participating as "givers" in World Book Night, a program designed to distribute free books to people who might not read them otherwise. Last year Eggerling and her two young sons took boxes filled with the novel "Fahrenheit 451" and distributed them from a Los Angeles city fire truck in Eagle Rock.

It's hard to believe that only 50 years have passed since Julia Child set foot on the new continent of American Foodlandia. And yet in that short period, it seems we've already seen the full cycle of colonial development: discovery, exploration, exploitation. Three books on recent food history offer glimpses of each stage. Luke Barr's "Provence, 1970" describes the beginning; Colman Andrews' "My Usual Table" hits the middle period; and Allen Salkin's "From Scratch," a pulp history of the Food Network, covers the descent into decadence.

The L.A. County sheriff's deputies who mistakenly shot two victims of a knife attack in West Hollywood, killing one, will return to active duty next week, department officials said. The three deputies have gone through the psychological evaluation and training required after shootings in which a person is hit and have been cleared to go back on patrol, said West Hollywood station Capt. Gary Honings. The deputies had been on leave since April 7 when they fatally shot aspiring Hollywood producer John Winkler in the chest as he and another victim ran out of an apartment, officials said.

The second vintage from Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's wine estate in southeast France is a spectacular rosé from an unspectacular year. Made by the Perrin family of the renowned Châteauneuf-du-Pape estate Château de Beaucastel, the 2013 Château Miraval rosé is elegant and fresh, with a scent of wild strawberries. I could drink this very serious rosé all summer long. Quantities are limited, though, and this one may be gone even before summer gets here. Have it with radishes and butter, with toasts spread with tapenade, crudités, grilled salmon or a simple roast chicken.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department acknowledged Thursday that its deputies mistakenly shot and killed an aspiring TV producer earlier this week while responding to a stabbing and hostage standoff in West Hollywood. Sheriff's officials said deputies believed John Winkler, 30, was the attacker when they encountered him at a Palm Avenue apartment complex Monday night. In fact, he was one of three hostages being held inside an apartment by a man with a knife. Winkler was shot in the chest when he rushed out of the apartment with one of the other victims, sheriff's officials said in a statement.
