A thousand firefighters battled a 4,000-acre brush blaze Wednesday that burned through the Cleveland National Forest near Lake Elsinore, forcing evacuation of at least 200 residents. "The smoke is so bad you feel like you could cut it with a knife," said Pat Rambo, a Riverside County Sheriff's Department employee stationed in Lake Elsinore. "We're also getting ashes falling all over the place." Wind gusts were pushing the fire in several directions, but by late afternoon, one arm of the blaze was moving toward Lakeland Village, a mile south of Lake Elsinore, and another was heading toward Rancho Capistrano, 5 1/2 miles south of Ortega Highway, said Carol Stein, a U.S. Forest Service spokeswoman.

Lance Cpl. Justin Hunt's dedication to the Marines could be measured in pounds -- as in the nearly 200 pounds the Riverside resident lost over 10 months to prepare for the rigors of boot camp. "He was turned down by the Army and the Navy. They told him he was too big and to come back when he lost the weight," his twin brother, Jason, 22, said.

When a teen lifted his baggy shorts and flashed a swastika and German army tattoos at Kenny Turner outside his high school last June, the popular black Lake Elsinore senior just kept walking. "It was the second-to-last day of the school year," recalled Turner, now 19. "I didn't want to be in trouble with one day left." But Turner and two witnesses said the young man, armed with an ice pick, ran after him and stabbed him while screaming a racial slur.

Hundreds of firefighters, hampered by steep terrain and darkness, struggled Tuesday night to halt the summer's first major brush fire, a 3,000-acre blaze that raced through the Cleveland National Forest east of San Juan Capistrano and threatened more than 100 homes. The fire roared unchecked on both sides of Ortega Highway, the primary link between south Orange County and Lake Elsinore in Riverside County. The highway was shut down shortly after the fire erupted about 4 p.m. near the Upper San Juan campground, about 15 miles east of Interstate 5. What sparked the fire is unknown, officials said.

A stubborn 7,000-acre brush fire, feeding on dense, dry vegetation, swept eastward out of Cleveland National Forest to the edge of Lake Elsinore on Wednesday night, destroying six homes and forcing the evacuation of several hundred residents. Stoked by erratic winds, the blaze raced out of the sparsely populated high country where it began Tuesday and took aim at several residential pockets on the west side of Lake Elsinore in Riverside County shortly before dusk. Six homes, valued at more $200,000 each, were destroyed in the Decker Canyon-Lakeland Village areas, where Riverside County sheriff's deputies had evacuated more than 300 residents earlier in the day, officials said.

Gubernatorial candidate Arnold Schwarzenegger attracted hundreds of supporters, a few naysayers and dozens of screaming autograph seekers at a lunchtime rally Thursday in downtown Riverside, a visit that underscored the important role the Inland Empire could play in the recall election. The boisterous event in the City Hall plaza, which attracted an estimated 1,500 people, was the Republican front-runner's first campaign appearance in the Inland Empire.

"Everything . . . is changing," Paula Miller said soon after her husband, former FBI Agent Richard W. Miller, was arrested in 1984 for selling U.S. secrets to the Soviet Union. "The ground is moving under my feet. I spend hours and hours lying in my room trying to come up with some answers." The dark ruminations for Paula Miller would lead to sweeping changes in her life--divorce, a new husband, new jobs, finally a move out of the country. She and her youngest children took up residence more than a year ago in the Philippines, where her new husband does civilian work for a U.S. military base, her attorney said Tuesday.
