  • Oops! EPA goes off topic, tweets about Kardashian

    Yesterday

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Environmental Protection Agency's fight to clean up water pollution got a splash of pop culture Tuesday, thanks to an Internet flub involving reality TV star Kim Kardashian. The verified Twitter account for the EPA's Office of Water mistakenly published a message Monday night about an online game, "Kim Kardashian: Hollywood," in which players walk red carpets, attend photo shoots and get dolled up like a Kardashian. An agency spokeswoman said the off-topic tweet was done by an intern. The government's tweet was removed within hours from the @EPAwater account, but not before a tweet from the account of Rep. John Dingell, D-Mich., the 88-year-old co-author of the Clean Water Act, poked fun by asking what

  • Beshear: Health rulings won't affect Kentucky

    Yesterday

    FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear says rulings Tuesday on President Barack Obama's health care law won't affect enrollees in Kentucky's state-run health exchange. Beshear said in a statement released by the Cabinet for Health and Family Services that premium assistance that Kentucky enrollees have qualified for also won't be affected. Within hours of each other Tuesday, two federal appeals courts issued contradictory rulings on the subsidies that help low- and middle-income people afford premiums. Beshear said the confusion highlighted by the rulings just reiterates that Kentucky was in the right by creating a state-based exchange rather than going with the federal exchange.

  • George Harrison memorial tree killed by beetles

    Yesterday

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — A tree planted in Los Angeles to honor former Beatle George Harrison has been killed — by beetles. Councilman Tom LaBonge says the pine grew to more than 12 feet tall before succumbing to a bark beetle infestation. The tree was removed last month. LaBonge says it will be replanted in the fall. After Harrison's 2001 death in Los Angeles, the pine was planted near Griffith Observatory. A small plaque at the base commemorates the guitarist and songwriter, who had a deep appreciation of gardening. LaBonge says several trees at Griffith Park have been killed by the beetles.

  • Jeter, Bauer give Fox a strong week in TV ratings

    Yesterday

    NEW YORK (AP) — Fox can thank Derek Jeter and Jack Bauer for a strong week in the television ratings. Last week's telecast of the Major League Baseball All-Star Game was seen by 11.3 million viewers and was the week's most popular live program. The game had a bigger audience than any of the last three editions of the midsummer classic, as it turned into a tribute to Jeter, the retiring New York Yankees shortstop. Action hero Bauer, portrayed by Kiefer Sutherland, led the final episode of the "24: Live Another Day" miniseries into the Nielsen company's list of top 10 programs. An estimated 6.5 million people watched it last Monday. As a result, struggling Fox finished second in viewership among the networks and first w

  • Working late in life, directors refuse to say cut

    Yesterday

    Visiting a retired Frank Capra at his Sierra Nevada hideaway, Clint Eastwood was baffled. "I always thought: 'He could be making a film right now. He's as lucid as could be. Here's the great Frank Capra not doing it,'" Eastwood recalled of the famed director, who died in 1991 at 94, three decades after his last film. "I always thought, 'I wonder why that is?'" Eastwood, who at 84 just released the musical "Jersey Boys" and wrapped shooting on the Navy SEAL drama "American Sniper," isn't the only filmmaker blowing past conventional retirement age. This Friday, Woody Allen, 78, will, like clockwork, release his latest, the French Riviera romantic comedy "Magic in the Moonlight." He's also already on to the next one, shooting in
