MYRTLE BEACH, S.C -- Robert Brooks had a simple explanation for the success of his Hooters chain, known as much for its waitresses' tight T-shirts as for its chicken wings. "Good food, cold beer and pretty girls never go out of style," he told Fortune magazine in 2003. Mr. Brooks, chairman of the restaurant chain, was found dead at his home Sunday at 69. Coroner Robert Edge said an autopsy found Mr. Brooks died of natural causes, but he would not be more specific. Since opening its first restaurant in Clearwater, Fla., in 1983, Hooters of America Inc. has expanded into 46 states and 19 countries.

The Harford County Humane Society's board will review its policy on euthanasia Friday after a Bel Air man's cat was mistaken for a stray and put down within hours of arriving at the shelter. The man's lawyer and the shelter are also in settlement talks. "I loved that cat like a person," said Robert Brooks, the cat's owner. "I loved her for 18 years. I never would have put her in harm's way. " Brooks found the cat, which he named Mistoffelees, in 1995 and took her home, where she remained an indoor pet for 18 years.

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The Green Bay Packers lost return specialist Desmond Howard to free agency this year and replaced him with Qadry Ismail.They lost veteran defensive end Sean Jones to retirement and added the stability of linebacker Seth Joyner, a 12-year vet himself.They lost wide receiver Andre Rison to salary cap economics and effectively filled the void with Robert Brooks, who was the team's best receiver until a severe knee injury last October short-circuited his season.The more the Packers subtracted this off-season, the more they enhanced their position as the team to beat in the NFL this season.

Robert Henry Brooks Jr. of Pikesville, a master electrician in a family business who spent many happy Saturday nights patrolling Howard County as an auxiliary police officer, was electrocuted Wednesday in Stanley, Va. He was 27. Mr. Brooks had gone to the foothills of the Shenandoah Mountains to work on outdoor signs at several businesses owned by his grandfather, Emmett Brooks. When the younger Mr. Brooks reached into one sign to change a light bulb, his hand apparently grazed a live wire, said his mother, Susan Brooks.
