A Pomona man who led police on a short chase after refusing to pull over for a traffic stop is being held in connection with the Sept. 29 shooting death of another man, police said. Pomona police identified the suspect as Robert Louis Caballero, 32. They said he refused the order to stop about 1 a.m. Saturday and then led them on a pursuit into Montclair, where his Dodge Charger struck a light pole. He ran away but soon surrendered, they said. Police later said he was wanted on a murder warrant in connection with the death of Armando Vidana, 25. Caballero is being held without bail at Pomona City Jail.

I can't let 1998 slip by without writing this letter, which I've been putting off for months. I simply want to tell you how much my wife and I enjoy and appreciate Dana Parsons. In the midst of the surreal circus we read about every day, his voice of compassion, humanity and gentle humor is a welcome antidote. Since moving to Orange County, we've welcomed his commentary and savored his wisdom. DAN CHASMAN Laguna Hills

The historic Balboa Island ferry was out of service Wednesday after operators discovered a 2-foot hole in its hull late Tuesday night, the U.S. Coast Guard reported. The 57-foot ferry had no passengers when it ran aground about 11:30 p.m., but it was carrying an estimated 50 gallons of gasoline. The fuel was removed and the Coast Guard said there had been no reports of pollution in the harbor. Officials at Balboa Island Ferry, which operates the service, and South Coast Shipyard, where the ferry was taken for repairs, could not be reached for comment.

The two hunky guys passed each other in the yard and exchanged nods. Normally, both might have kept going, but each seemed instinctively to realize that the other could use a friend. Maybe it had something to do with this being the first day for both of them in federal prison. The smaller man, more loquacious by nature, broke the ice. "You're Barry, right?" he asked with a crooked grin. "Yeah," the other man replied. "And you are?" "Mike," he replied. "Mike Carona.

These could have been bad days for Bob Weinstein. Really dark ones. November is fast upon him, which means that it won't be much longer now for his beloved Book Baron in Anaheim. If we wanted to wax rhapsodic, we could say the Huns are battering at the gates of the literary fortress he's defended for the last 28 years. Forget the Huns and bad metaphors. Weinstein has very real problems: like coming in every day and staring at a sign that no business owner wants to see: "70% Off."

The whole crazy mess started, according to Ben Bennani, with a wayward hairpiece. Which means, I guess, that vanity is the real culprit in our tale of a guy who, in the simple pursuit of a better look, finds himself, six years later, with a sad story to tell. The thing is, Bennani says, it's not like he couldn't cope with baldness, which began its relentless assault in his 30s. Still, by 2001, when he was 50, he didn't like mirrors.

It should have been a deliciously satisfying moment for Lori Haigh, a form of vindication a quarter-century in the making. It's not a stretch to say she had hoped for years for something just like it -- when an official of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Orange would break emotionally and show at least a flicker of the same kind of suffering she'd felt so many times after being molested by a priest when she was a teenager. Then, it seemingly happened.

When Arte Moreno bought the Angels in 2003, I suggested that baseball's cruelties would inevitably lead to heartache. What I failed to mention was that City Hall might give him a headache. Losing streaks and tough playoff losses can be dealt with. Even the hot breath of the Seattle Mariners on Labor Day weekend now must feel like a refreshing breeze compared to the blasts he's gotten from Anaheim politicians. Baseball seasons end; Moreno's squabbles with City Hall go on and on.

As another glorious school year nears, teachers are hunkering down to do battle against that increasingly implacable classroom foe. No, not students. The cellphone. Like the sneakiest enemy, the phones seldom are seen. They hide in places like sweat shirt pouches, behind upright textbooks or under desktops. They are easily camouflaged. Usually, they aren't heard. But every so often, usually because of a tactical mistake, they emit a sound.
