Community fund-raising efforts to pay for the legal defense of four suspects accused in the April 29 attack on truck driver Reginald O. Denny have been churning away for several weeks, but family members and lawyers representing the suspects say they have yet to see a penny. In part, that is because the leading fund-raising campaign--sponsored by Bethel African Methodist Episcopal Church and endorsed by several of the lawyers and family members--has just started.

Bethel African Methodist Episcopal Church of Oxnard is sponsoring its first All Male Worship Service on Jan. 13. The Rev. Johnie Carlisle Jr. said the event stems from a church group called Sons of Allen that gives men an opportunity to exert a positive influence in church congregations--many of which, he said, are dominated by women. While comparisons with the recent "Million Man March" are inevitable, Carlisle said the event was planned before the rally in Washington, D. C.

Los Angeles officials on Tuesday revealed details of the city's upcoming gun buyback day, the first held after similar events in December yielded record numbers for some area municipalities. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and Police Chief Charlie Beck announced that residents can anonymously turn in firearms May 4 and receive up to $100 of Ralph's gift cards for handguns, shotguns and rifles, and up to $200 for assault weapons. Authorities will collect weapons at four locations from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. that day: The Los Angeles Fire Department Academy, 1700 Stadium Way; a South L.A. park-and-ride parking lot, 1300 West Pacific Coast Highway; the Bethel African Methodist Episcopal Church, 7900 South Western Avenue; and the Van Nuys Masonic Temple, 14750 Sherman Way. Though the event is usually held in the spring, the December shooting at a Newtown, Conn., elementary school prompted officials across Southern California to host buyback days at the end of the year.
