At 81, former World War II pilot Jim Modes still enjoys the thrill of flying. Modes also gets a kick out of thrilling others with his daredevil antics, as he did Sunday at the 19th annual Camarillo Air Show. The veteran pilot flew a vintage AT-6--the same type of plane that he used to train military pilots 50 years ago--to perform his trick flying. Shooting into the sky in a loop-de-loop, Modes left a ring of smoke before buzzing his plane close to the ground.

Senate Majority Leader Gloria Romero (D-Los Angeles) last week amended her bill, which seeks to move female offenders in the juvenile justice system to less expensive community programs where they can receive education and rehabilitation programs.
