A band of masked Asian teen-agers stormed into a home here, bound members of a family of five with duct tape and pistol-whipped the mother before fleeing with jewelry, police said Saturday. Brea officers, who police neighboring Yorba Linda, said the victims of the attack just before midnight Friday are Chinese but that the intrusion resembles home invasions that have plagued the county's Vietnamese community in recent months.

Nearly six years have passed since Ray Zhang last saw his parents. * It was the day he escaped Beijing's Tien An Men Square, where he had taken part in revolts against the Communist Chinese government that turned violent. His parents agreed he should flee for his safety, and he left without knowing when he would be back in touch. Zhang, now 26, thought they would finally be reunited Sunday, when he will receive a master's degree in business from Chapman University in Orange.

A quick drive down 11th Street, just east of Harbor Boulevard, reveals two blocks of modest, aging duplexes and fourplexes and a crop of new apartments under construction at the Santa Ana edge of Little Saigon. Look a little harder and you might discern the stamp of Anh Nhu Nguyen--a multilingual real estate agent whose specialty is finding chunks of investment property for largely Vietnamese clients.

A freighter carrying hundreds of illegal Chinese immigrants ran aground off one of New York City's most popular bathing beaches early Sunday. At least seven people perished as waves of immigrants leaped from the ship and struggled to reach shore through chilly Atlantic waters and heavy surf. Rescuers who converged on the beach said they saw hundreds of immigrants jumping off the 150-foot-long, rust-flecked freighter or scrambling down ropes into the water.

In an odd turn to a high-profile trial, a juror who was approached by a news reporter was dismissed Tuesday, on the eve of deliberations in the two-month murder case of Li-Yun (Lisa) Peng. The action came as the prosecution and defense wound up closing arguments in the trial of Peng, a Taiwanese national accused of killing her tycoon husband's mistress and the woman's infant son in Mission Viejo in August, 1993. Jurors are expected to begin deliberations today in Orange County Superior Court.

At the stroke of 9 on a Sunday morning, students by the hundreds are arriving at the deserted University High School campus in Irvine. Lines of Mercedes-Benzes, BMWs and Toyotas drop them off from stylish homes in Newport Beach, Anaheim Hills and Tustin. Dressed in trendy sweats and high-top tennies, they jostle, gossip and kid among themselves as they make their way to class.

The twinkle in the eyes of 100-year-old Chinese farming pioneer Sam Chang, who was honored Saturday night at the Irvine Hilton and Towers, will not soon be forgotten. Nearly 600 people attended "Golden Fields," a dinner sponsored by the Chinese-American Council of the Historical and Cultural Foundation of Orange County. The affair was a tribute to the Chinese farmers whose inventiveness with machinery and creative farming techniques helped establish a worldwide market for California agriculture.
