Some people said Paris Hilton looked as if she was going to burst into tears at the MTV Movie Awards, after comic Sarah Silverman made a joke at Paris' expense from the stage. Oh, please, if you're so fragile why spend your last night of freedom -- for 23 days, anyway -- at the MTV Awards? What about staying home with the Bible? We all know how devoted Miss Hilton is to matters of the spirit. I missed most of the MTV awards, except I did see Cameron Diaz, blond again and dazzling, handing Mike Myers his prize.

In the early morning of June 25, 2002, Officer 1st Class Patrick Eckley and his canine partner, Ben, searched for the source of piercing screams that caused nearby residents to call 911 and walked into the dark woods next to a Columbia apartment complex. The officer and his dog came upon a man sexually assaulting a 17-year-old girl. His hands were still around her throat. When the man started to run, Eckley unleashed Ben, who bit the suspect on the leg and held him until the officer could subdue and handcuff him. Eckley arrested the man, who was later sentenced to 65 years in prison for attempted murder and sexual assault.

When Bill and Amy Hubbard bought the old stone house on Webster Street in Bel Air more than 10 years ago, they knew it had good bones. Slowly they renovated and added on, making the home an example of how a little extra effort goes a long way. What was important to the Hubbards was that the architecture and historic charm that they fell in love with was not lost in the improvements. So when it came time to put on a 2,300-square-foot addition, they wanted it to blend in and look like it was always part of the house.
