She felt lost in the shuffle, so it was time to go. After about 15 years, Grammy winner Shawn Colvin decided to part ways with mighty Columbia Records and move to the smaller Nonesuch label. It's a new beginning. "I wanted a smaller label that would be more open to the type of projects I want to do," says the folk-pop artist, who's calling from her hotel suite in Santa Rosa, Calif. Colvin performs at Rams Head Live on Saturday night. "I wanted a label that was interested in me and my career."

THE MOST effective animal protection measure of recent times has been the "dolphin safe" tuna label campaign that has reduced the fishing boat slaughter of these marvelous marine mammals, following a grass-roots consumer boycott and then U.S. law in 1990. The killing of dolphins by tuna netting has dropped from 130,000 a year in 1986 to fewer than 3,000 in 1996.Now the White House wants to overturn this remarkable success, arguing that other nations will violate the rules anyway and that "dolphin safe" methods needlessly kill young tuna, sea turtles, sharks and other creatures.

1999 Francis Coppola Diamond Series Chardonnay, Gold Label ($15). The famed director's Napa Valley winery has expanded its line of wines with generally impressive results. This well-balanced, medium- to full-bodied California chardonnay shows a stylishness and vibrant character that is increasingly hard to find in this price range. It offers fresh flavors of apple, pear, lemon, toast and a subtle seasoning of white pepper. There's a soft, gentle texture to the wine, but good acidity in the finish.

About 10 years ago, mainstream critics buzzed about Alana Davis, who was supposed to be the next big thing in pop. The soulful, folk-influenced singer-guitarist wrote her own music, but she broke into the Top 40 with a memorable cover of "32 Flavors" by fellow folkie Ani DiFranco. Time magazine voted her 1998 debut, Blame It on Me, one of the year's best albums. Entertainment Weekly called Davis the "most promising newcomer of 1998." She also played Lilith Fair that year. But the momentum quickly fizzled.

How much perky can be squeezed into a polo shirt? Or a pair of patterned pants? Ask a Lilly lover. She'll tell you, in those famous pink and green and playful Lilly Pulitzer prints, women are happier, smilier, chirpier. Infinitely so. No matter the season, Lilly Pulitzer enthusiasts are on beach getaways and summer strolls. They're sipping lemonade spritzers and nursing sorbets. They find joy and love and - cloaked in those sherbet-shades - more cheerful, more carefree reflections of themselves.

Again and again, she made me smile that year. And just when I thought she'd be around for a while, just when I thought she'd lift me into the stratosphere with more of her music -- poof! -- the girl was gone. Adriana Evans is the mysterious songstress whose CD stayed in my changer and Walkman for an entire year, filling my headphones day in and out. I still play her album regularly. In '97, my sophomore year at the University of Arkansas, the San Francisco-raised artist dropped her self-titled debut.

BOSTON - Thus begins another day in the Internet cafe. I arrive at the office, decap my java, turn on the computer, and begin consuming the typical American breakfast: coffee and spam. On my electronic plate I find the usual fare: Several offers to enlarge my penis, an opportunity to lose weight while I sleep, a chance to get a lower mortgage, get out of debt, buy prescription drugs online, all while watching XXX-rated teen-agers. With the only utensil at hand - a plastic delete button - I pick at my food.

The timing is off -- way off. But Sunshine Anderson feels it's better late than never. After nearly six years of silence, the R&B singer has finally released her sophomore effort, Sunshine After Midnight. The CD belatedly follows her hit 2001 debut, Your Woman. Spurred by the sassy, strutting crossover smash "Heard It All Before," that album entered the Top 10 on Billboard's pop charts five Aprils ago, eventually going gold. Anderson's lyrical directness and swaggering, slightly off-key approach drew comparisons to the original 'hood-rat diva, Mary J. Blige.

WASHINGTON -- Federal health officials proposed new label warnings for all antidepressants yesterday, a move aimed at protecting 18- to 24-year-olds who might be at increased risk of suicidal thinking and behavior during early months of treatment. The "black box" update would follow similar changes made to antidepressants' labels in 2005 that added a warning of increased suicide risks among children and adolescents but did not give specific ages.

When coronary arteries get dangerously narrow, the solution -- increasingly -- is to prop open the walls with a device called a drug-eluting stent. Now, two new studies are adding fuel to a growing debate about whether these stents are being overused, with ill consequences for patients. The studies, both published in the May 9 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association, included large groups of patients who were treated for narrowing in their coronary arteries with the stents, which are tiny drug-coated cylinders used to prop open blocked arteries.
