A federal jury in Tampa took only two hours Tuesday to find a 74-year-old Florida man guilty of espionage for smuggling thousands of pages of U.S. classified documents to the KGB. George Trofimoff, the German-born son of Russian immigrants and a retired colonel from the U.S. Army Reserve, could face a life term in prison. According to testimony at his trial, he was one of the Kremlin's most prized undercover assets during the Cold War, earning a Soviet medal for valor.

The Los Angeles City Council approved a first step Wednesday in supplementing the pay of city employees called into active military duty in Bosnia. The unanimous vote instructs the city attorney to draw up an ordinance that will allow the city to make up the difference between employee salaries and military pay for a period of up to 180 days. Similar subsidies were approved in 1991 for reservists employed by the city who were called to duty in the Persian Gulf War.

A federal court judge this week refused to dismiss a wrongful-termination lawsuit filed by an Army Reserve major who alleges that he was fired from his civilian job while serving in the Persian Gulf War. U.S. District Judge Lawrence T. Lydick denied a motion filed by Loral Aeronutronic Corp. and Ford Motor Co. to dismiss Maj. Stephen McConnell's complaint that the companies violated a federal law when they sent him letters of termination while he was in the Gulf.

A military panel found an Army reservist guilty of disobeying an order for refusing to take the anthrax vaccine and tossed her out of the Army on Wednesday. The panel of eight officers -- only two of whom said during questioning that they have taken the six-shot regimen -- took 40 minutes to return a guilty verdict against Pvt. Kamila Iwanowska and two hours to determine her penalty: a bad conduct discharge.

Camp Parks, a 2,268-acre reserve training center about 25 miles east of San Francisco, is "extremely vital" and should be kept open despite efforts by local officials to sell the aging base, said the commander of the U.S. Army Reserve.

Assemblyman Tom Umberg, stationed at the U.S. Naval Station in Guantanamo, Cuba, since August, came home to Santa Ana on Tuesday to give supporters the thanks usually shared on election night.
