A Diamond Bar couple were charged by federal authorities Friday with conspiring to export sensitive electronics technology to China, a crime that carries a potential 20-year prison sentence. York Yuan Chang, a naturalized U.S. citizen, and his wife, Leping Huang, a Chinese national, are accused of working with a government-affiliated technology firm in China to develop electronics that could be used in weapons and other military equipment. Chang, 53, also known as David Zhang, is being held without bond, while Huang, 49, was released on $1-million bail.

As foreclosure fights rage in the nation's courts, the battle over Shahida and Ather Ali's house in Diamond Bar looks like a classic mismatch. In one corner, weighing in at $2.5 trillion in assets, sits Deutsche Bank, which is attempting to evict the Alis from their home of 24 years. In the other is Zeenat Ali, the couple's diminutive 23-year-old daughter, who dropped out of medical school and sued Deutsche Bank after it foreclosed on the property. Hoping to reclaim title for her parents, Ali has spent half a year litigating in state and federal courts without the help of a lawyer.

There are times athletes do stupid things when they lose their composure in the middle of a sports competition, whether throwing a golf club, smashing a hand into a wall or letting loose a profanity-filled outburst at a teammate. That's why it is so important to teach teenagers how to respond when they experience failure, because once the lesson is learned it can be used in all aspects of life. In more than 30 years of covering high school sports, I have concluded that one of the most important situations for a coach occurs after a defeat.

After six innings of a scoreless game Friday that featured two elite high school pitchers in junior left-hander Kenny Mathews from Diamond Bar and senior right-hander Adam Plutko from Glendora, Tartans Coach Dan Henley had begun to think about what to do if the game kept going on and on. "I was making plans for the 10th, 11th and 12th inning," Henley said. "It was really to the point where you go, ‘These guys are dueling it out and are warriors out there.' It was a lot of fun."

Southern California gets a few drops of rain, and news stations call it "Storm Watch 2010." Everyone goes crazy. The Lakers are similar to that storm watch. When there are a few drops of rain or — in the Lakers' case —a few losses, the sky is falling. Kind of like the people in SoCal expect sunny weather every day, fans expect the Lakers to win every game. In both cases, it's unrealistic to demand such perfection. Want to see a real storm? Look at New Jersey's weather and then take a look at the Nets' record in the standings.

A faulty catalytic converter on a pickup truck was blamed Tuesday for sparking a series of brush fires that broke out along the 60 Freeway in Diamond Bar, threatening expensive hillside homes and forcing students to seek shelter in a gymnasium when their campus was clouded in smoke. At least eight fires were reported about 11:45 a.m. as the vehicle spewed out sparks and flames in the grass and brush-covered terrain next to the freeway, authorities said. Witnesses told The Times that the blazes were spread fairly evenly along the freeway, a busy east-west artery that links Los Angeles to the San Gabriel Valley and San Bernardino County.

For years Rowland Heights residents watched as neighboring cities nibbled away at the community's borders, annexing valuable commercial tax bases and eyeing its scenic open spaces. But as part of unincorporated Los Angeles County, they had little power to fight back. A group of residents, hoping to change that, recently launched a petition drive seeking cityhood for the San Gabriel Valley community of about 60,000. But their efforts stalled this summer after they failed to rally enough support.

Question: On July 31, we disembarked from the Crown Princess and tried to collect our four pieces of baggage at the cruise terminal in Southampton, England. One piece was missing. We searched for it, but no luck. We had bought a transfer from the cruise terminal to Heathrow, and a baggage handler urged us to get on the shuttle bus so we wouldn't delay the other passengers. He assured us he would put the bag on the next shuttle. At Heathrow, we waited 2 1/2 hours for our bag, which never arrived.
