CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — President Nicolas Maduro announced Saturday that he will limit the number of U.S. diplomats allowed to work in Venezuela and also will require U.S. citizens to apply for visas if they want to visit.

Maduro said that U.S. meddling in the internal affairs of his country has forced him to adopt the series of restrictive measures.

Relations between the two countries have been steadily deteriorating. Earlier this month, Maduro accused the U.S. of working with local opposition groups to stage a coup that involved bombing the presidential palace. Washington called the accusation ludicrous.

The exhibit called "The Collection of Nancy Lee and Perry R. Bass" opens Sunday at the Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth.

Museum officials say the Fort Worth couple's collection of late 19th- and 20th-century art began on a 1961 trip to Europe. The Basses eventually acquired pieces by van Gogh, Picasso, Monet (muh-NAY') and Renoir (rehn-WAH').

The exhibit, featuring more than three dozen works of art, runs through May 24.

Perry Bass was the nephew and heir of Fort Worth oil tycoon Sid Richardson. Perry Bass died in 2006. His wife died in 2013.

WASHINGTON (AP) — California lawmakers and advocacy groups are ramping up efforts to win national monument designation for four scenic vistas in the state, from vast stretches of the Mojave Desert to redwood stands along the Pacific Coast Highway to canyons and mountains near the state's famous wine country.

The designation typically takes lands already owned by the government and walls them off from new mining, roads and power lines. Recreational activities such as hunting, fishing, hiking and horseback riding are commonly allowed, though each national monument has its own dos and don'ts.

The Department of Natural Resources says guided tours will start at Hardman Farm in White County March 5.

The farm's main house was built in the Italianate style by Captain James Nichols in 1870. It was originally known as West End because it was at the west end of the Nacoochee Valley.

The family of Dr. Lamartine Hardman, who served as Georgia's governor from 1927-1931, was the last owner. The family preserved it for many years and donated it to the state in 1999.

Visitors can go on a guided tour of the house and dairy barn.

The 2013 law barred state and local law officers from enforcing off-highway vehicle laws on closed federal lands. It was crafted after angry rural lawmakers complained that federal officials were closing roads used by hunters and other recreational users and then requiring state Game and Fish officers and local sheriffs to enforce the closures.
