Ernesto Montgomery must have known that the turnout would be sparse the other day when he called a news conference to announce that he knows who started this month's devastating Calabasas/Malibu brush fire. Montgomery is a psychic, after all. Events of the future, he says, have a way of appearing before his eyes with the clarity of a movie theater screen. It's been that way since he was a 5-year-old growing up in Jamaica who earned slices of mango by making predictions for grown-ups.

An organization that says it was promised $50,000 from USA for Africa and Hands Across America but was later turned down is suing the fund-raising groups. The Jamaica Christian Fund and its executive director, Ernesto Montgomery, contend in their Los Angeles County Superior Court suit filed Wednesday that the groups never intended to hand over the money. The suit said they were told they would get $25,000 from each campaign but that the money was "improperly withheld."

On Sept. 21, 1945, Pasadena minister Charles Long and his followers stayed up all night, reading Scripture and waiting for the world to blow up, as Long had predicted. "Many had sold their possessions, paid their debts and made peace with their neighbors," The Times reported. To their considerable surprise, the sun greeted them the next morning. The minister matter-of-factly explained that he had made a "minor error in his calculations," The Times said.

California Highway Patrol officers could hardly have found a grimmer illustration of the merits of seat belts: A 31-year-old Los Angeles man was killed when he was thrown from his car as it struck a guardrail on the Long Beach Freeway in Commerce. The vehicle plunged into a chain-link fence about 35 feet below. The driver had failed to buckle his seat belt. Paramedics pronounced him dead at the scene. His name was withheld until relatives could be told.
