Their message: no release for Edward Charles Allaway, the man who shot seven people to death in the basement of the campus library 25 years ago and has been in mental hospitals since. "In my opinion, he should have been put to death 25 years ago," said county Supervisor Todd Spitzer, who helped organize the event.

Prosecutors filed papers in Superior Court on Monday arguing the 1976 conspiracy indictment against former radical Sara Jane Olson should not be dismissed as overly broad because the grand jury had heard evidence of her direct participation in attempts to bomb Los Angeles police cars. The papers, filed by Deputy Dist. Attys. Eleanor Hunter and Michael Latin, responded to a previous defense motion asking the judge to toss out the 23-year-old indictment.

Moments after George W. Bush's 1976 arrest for drunken driving was reported, the media faced a dilemma: How do you cover a politically sensitive, late-breaking story of questionable origin and impact on the eve of an election? For a host of observers, the media's performance left much to be desired.

Later, friends and relatives would recount the episode and shake their heads. It wasn't just the naivete. By the time she married him seven years later at the age of 25, it seemed there had never been a time when the larger-than-life celebrity had not dominated her existence. Their home was his mansion.

She had started before sunup, swimming in the cool of the morning under the lights at Independence Park Pool in Fullerton, and she was still at it as her teammates finished their workouts and pulled themselves up onto the deck. As the members of the Fullerton Aquatics Sports Team picked up their gear and headed for the gate, they kept an eye on their celebrated teammate who was still working steadily, up and down in that first lane that she always has to herself.

U.S. oil imports last year jumped to the highest level since 1979 as consumption rose and domestic production hit a 12-year low, an industry trade group said today. The American Petroleum Institute, representing the major oil producers and refiners, said U.S. oil production fell to 8.1 million barrels a day, a nearly 3% drop from 1987. The rate was the lowest since 1976, the year before production began at the giant Prudhoe Bay oil field on the North Slope of Alaska.
