LOS ANGELES (AP) — Tight security is expected at Saturday night's seventh annual Governors Awards, where Spike Lee, Gena Rowlands and Debbie Reynolds will receive the first Oscars of Hollywood's award season.
Los Angeles police say security for the star-studded ceremony at the Hollywood & Highland Center will likely be increased in the wake of the Paris terrorist attacks, as it will at several other high-profile Saturday events around the city.

SUN VALLEY, Nev. (AP) — One of the first, actual on-the-ground disruptions caused by new U.S. efforts to protect the greater sage grouse isn't on a cattle ranch in Oregon or an oil field in Colorado.
