Schwarzenegger amends filings on divorce
LOS ANGELES -- Arnold Schwarzenegger has amended a divorce filing and withdrawn a request that a judge terminate Maria Shriver's rights to spousal support.
The actor and former California governor's filing replaces a document he submitted last week that also indicated he wanted Shriver to pay her own attorney's fees. The amended response filed Monday in Los Angeles states Schwarzenegger is also willing to pay his estranged wife's attorney.
The former couple's 13-year-old son has been released from the hospital after a body-boarding accident on June 17 left him with a collapsed lung.
Shriver filed for divorce July 1. Her petition to end the couple's 25-year-marriage came weeks after Schwarzenegger revealed he fathered a child with a member of his household staff years ago.
Founder of band America dies
ST. LOUIS -- Dan Peek, a founding member of the popular 1970s band America and singer of high harmonies on hits that included ''A Horse With No Name'' and ''Ventura Highway,'' has died, his father said Tuesday. He was 60.
Peek's wife, Catherine, found him dead Sunday in bed in his home in Farmington, Mo., about 60 miles southwest of St. Louis, Milton Peek said. The cause of death was not known, and an autopsy was planned. Dan Peek suffered from arthritis, but it wasn't known if that was a contributing factor.
Crow auctioning car to aid Joplin
SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Some winning bidder will soon be cruising life's winding road in Sheryl Crow's 1959 Mercedes-Benz 190SL Roadster.
The Grammy award-winning singer said Monday that she's auctioning off the classic car next month and that the proceeds will go toward helping rebuild the tornado-ravaged city of Joplin in her native state of Missouri.
Crow said she loves the car and has had it for six years, but doesn't drive it anymore.
The Springfield News-Leader reports that Crow hopes the car will fetch up to $500,000 at the Aug. 21 auction in Pebble Beach, Calif. But she says she'd be happy if it raises $100,000.
Crow was a schoolteacher before launching her singing career, and the money will go to the Joplin Schools Recovery Fund.
