Small Boat Washes Ashore Near Palos Verdes, Coast Guard Searching For Possible Occupants
PALOS VERDES (CBS) — A multi-agency search was underway Tuesday morning for anyone who might have been aboard a small boat that washed ashore near Palos Verdes Estates.
The panga -- a small vessel commonly used by commercial fishermen -- was found about 6:45 a.m. near the 700 block of Paseo del Mar, the Los Angeles County Fire Department said. A number of gas cans were also found nearby. It was unclear if there were any occupants on the boat, fire officials said. The U.S. Coast Guard was sent to the scene and was looking for anyone who may have been on board, officials said. U.S. Border Patrol and lifeguards from Baywatch Cabrillo were also assisting in the search. (©2011 CBS Local Media, a division of CBS Radio Inc. All Rights Reserved.

NEW YORK (AP) — Mary Tyler Moore will be honored with the Screen Actors Guild life achievement award.

SAG announced Moore as this year’s recipient Thursday. The guild says Moore “created a new paradigm for female leads in television.”

The actress rose to stardom in “The Dick Van Dyke Show” and later starred in the landmark “The Mary Tyler Moore Show.” Her film credits include “Ordinary People” and her Broadway productions included “Whose Life Is It, Anyway?”

The 74-year-old Moore has won seven Emmys, a Tony award and been nominated for an Academy Award.

The 18th annual SAG Awards will be held Jan. 29 in Los Angeles.
