AUSTIN, Texas - Angel Olsen wrote the songs on Burn Your Fire for No Witness , her startlingly good, emotionally searing new album, in a fever. "I got back from tour and I didn't want to talk to anyone," said Olsen. She's an alt-folk singer of 27, with an arresting voice, and she plugs in and plays loud on Burn , her third and most riveting album. She plays a sold-out show at Johnny Brenda's on Wednesday. As she spoke, Olsen was sitting on a park bench on a bright, cool Texas morning during the South by Southwest Music Festival in March.

IT'S A MUG SHOT that's been seen around the world. It shows the face of Shanesha Taylor, a distraught mother of two, tears streaming down her face. Taylor was arrested on child-abuse charges last month after leaving her 2-year-old and 6-month-old sons locked in a hot car in Scottsdale, Ariz., while on a job interview. Most of us who read about what happened turned away from Taylor's anguish. Not Amanda Bishop. The 24-year-old New Jersey resident got busy, launching an online fundraising drive that has raised more than $100,000 for Taylor.

IT'S TRULY A SAD DAY for journalism, and for the world at large. An icon of the Daily News is gone. I spent many an evening of my youth with a dictionary in my hand reading Chuck Stone's columns. I may not have known every word he used in his column but I always knew what he meant to say. Yes, he used words the way Gillette wielded a razor, but in doing he always educated and inspired his readers to be more than they were before reading his words. And for those who felt he was their only hope for surviving, in surrender, they knew a truly good man without being one themselves.

I NEVER had the privilege of meeting Chuck Stone, but neither did I break bread with Michelangelo, Kipling or Debussy. Which is another way of saying you don't need to cross mortal paths with someone to perceive the depth of his eventual immortality. I started reading the Daily News in the sixth grade, and that precocity made me a fan of Mr. Stone at precisely the moment he started writing for the paper. At the time, I didn't understand a lot of what he'd be saying, and I was deeply disinterested in anything that had to do with race, but I liked his picture (bow tie, crew cut)

HARRISBURG - The hustle went down in a dimly lighted hallway outside his office in the state Capitol. Democratic State Rep. Angel Cruz had just finished talking to a Philadelphia lobbyist about a forthcoming House vote on the controversial voter-ID bill, when the lobbyist asked him to take a walk outside the office. There, he said, the lobbyist pulled out an envelope stuffed with cash and asked Cruz to vote against the legislation. "I'm like, whoa," Cruz said in an interview Wednesday.

The ninth annual Angels and Angelbugs Beauty Pageant in Woodlynne on Saturday did not quite go off without a hitch. Backstage, the only real moment of serenity was when the contestants, ranging from kindergartners to teenagers, held hands and prayed before the program. Otherwise, the classroom at Woodlynne Elementary School where the girls spent most of the three-hour pageant was happy, brightly colored chaos, with shoes, dresses, and props flying everywhere. The pageant is the signature event of the Angels on the Move Foundation, an organization led by Woodlynne Councilwoman Gwendolyn Torres that encourages girls from age 5 to young women age 21 to develop self-esteem and set goals.

ORIGINAL "Charlie's Angel" and longtime Kmart designer Jaclyn Smith spoke to media outside an LA courthouse yesterday. Smith offered her support to actor Ryan O'Neal . The "Paper Moon" actor is engaged in a court battle with the University of Texas at Austin over a portrait Andy Warhol made of O'Neal's late love Farrah Fawcett , who was Smith's dear friend and fellow Angel. O'Neal claims the Warhol belongs to him and Redmond O'Neal , his son with Fawcett. The university says Fawcett willed her entire art collection, including the painting, to the university.

Mike Trout's year may not have ended with a postseason appearance, but the Millville Marvel still put together a season that put him in some select company. The Angels centerfielder got his 190th hit Sunday, on a home run in the first inning of Los Angeles' season-ending 6-2 loss at Texas. That makes him only the third major-league player since 1900 with 190 hits, 100 walks, and 30 stolen bases in the same season. Since the other two on the list are Tigers star Ty Cobb (1915)

Gentlemen, set your alarm clocks. With Saturday's forecast for the north Texas metroplex indicating some severe thunderstorms starting in the early afternoon, the Rangers have rescheduled their game in Arlington with the Los Angeles Angels for 11:05 a.m. Central (around noon in Philadelphia). The game originally had a 7:05 p.m. start time. Since this would be Game No. 161 for both teams and Texas is still in the playoff hunt, it was either the early call or a doubleheader on Sunday.
