MEXICO CITY - On the eve of President Obama's trip to Mexico, Mexican authorities on Tuesday announced the capture of a key drug cartel operative, the father-in-law and associate of one of the world's most-wanted fugitive kingpins. The major arrest - the first under new President Enrique Peña Nieto - comes as the extraordinarily close U.S.-Mexican cooperation in the drug war is undergoing significant changes. The Los Angeles Times reported this week that officials of the 5-month-old Mexican administration were alarmed to discover how deeply involved U.S. advisors were in sensitive areas of security and law enforcement during the six-year government of former President Felipe Calderon.

Jury Acquits Kennedy's Future Father-in-Law: A Lafayette, La., jury acquitted Edmund Reggie, Sen. Edward Kennedy's prospective father-in-law, of federal charges of defrauding a savings and loan. Prosecutors said Reggie, who founded Acadia Savings & Loan in 1957, headed schemes to defraud the S&L and tried to force two investors to buy stock in a failing bank in order to get loans from the thrift. Both institutions were closed in 1987.

MADRID - With a teenager in a wheelchair and four other children younger than 12, Tania Maroto can't work outside the home. For years, her family got by on her husband's construction paycheck and social security for their disabled daughter. But her husband, Jose Ramon Fernandez, lost his job a year ago. And now even his unemployment benefits are going to shrink as part of the most drastic budget cuts in Spain's  democratic history. All they have left, it seems, is family. Living with parents and grandparents well into adulthood used to be a tradition in much of southern Europe.

Multi-generational living: A story in Saturday's Home section on "granny flats" said that USC gerontology professor Jon Pynoos' father lived on his property and received end-of-life care there for five years. It was Pynoos' father-in-law, not father, who lived in the guesthouse, and he was not given end-of-life care there. The remodeling described, including leveling the floor and installing grab bars, was rather so his father-in-law could function independently in the guesthouse.

A suspected U.S. missile strike killed a wife of Pakistani Taliban chief Baitullah Mahsud at his father-in-law's house, Pakistani intelligence and military officials said. Mahsud associates acknowledged that a woman was killed but would not confirm her identity. They said Mahsud was not at the South Waziristan home during the attack, which authorities said also killed a second person. Two intelligence officials and one army official, who all spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to reporters, said the missile strike had destroyed the home of Mahsud's father-in-law, Akramud Din, and that two people had been killed, including the second of Mahsud's two wives.

Diane Zimmerman's tribute to her father-in-law which appeared in Valley View (Feb. 13) touched both of us. We were customers of Paul's for the many years he had his shop here in Studio City. It quickly became obvious to us that he was not just an ordinary man. His integrity would not let him carry any products that were not the very best! At times he could not furnish a particular cut of meat because he couldn't always obtain the best. His professional attitude, his knowledge and his caring for his customers still impress us deeply.

Alexander Kholmyansky said that his 27-year-old wife, Anna, began fasting Sunday to pressure Soviet authorities into granting the couple an exit visa. "She will just be taking water. No fruits, no vitamins, nothing but water," Kholmyansky said.

Bill Cosby can't play chess. On his Thursday night shows, Cosby has tried, on occasion, to play with his son and father-in-law. While watching the Nov. 21 episode, it occurred to me why he never wins: He doesn't know how to set-up the chessboard. According to World Chess Federation Part I, Article 2.2: "The chessboard is placed between the players in such a way that the corner square to the right of each player is white." PAUL QUADE Anaheim

SEATTLE - A mother of two young girls who once lived adjacent to Steven Powell in Puyallup, Wash., testified Wednesday that the images of naked young girls found in his home - playing in the bathtub, going to the toilet - were her daughters. “Do you recognize the people in these photos?” Pierce County deputy prosecutor Bryce Nelson asked the woman, identified only as “D.C.” in the extraordinary opening of Powell's trial on 14 counts of voyeurism. “Yes,” she replied impassively.

Mexican authorities said Wednesday that they had captured a close family member of fugitive billionaire drug kingpin Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman while busting a Sinaloa cartel operation that extended all the way to Ecuador. Victor Manuel Felix was one of 18 people arrested in Mexico and Ecuador, the Mexican Public Security Ministry said. Federal police identified Felix as the father-in-law of Guzman's son as well as the godfather of one of the drug lord's children. That makes Felix and Guzman compadres , or co-fathers, which in Latin America is an especially tight relationship.

UCLA's Ben Howland wishes he could run a zone trap on this one. He'd like to surround it, smother it until it can't function, wipe it out forever. But he can't. It is called Huntington's disease, a terrible affliction with no effective treatment and no cure and something that hovers over his family like a dark cloud. Four years ago, Howland's father-in-law, Arlo Zahnow, died of Huntington's at age 74. At the end, after years of walking with a lurch and gesturing wildly from uncontrollable limbs, Zahnow was unable to even do that.

The U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals refused Thursday to rehear an appeal by a Connecticut woman seeking the return of two of the Norton Simon Museum's most prized holdings. Marei Von Saher, who is trying to win the nearly 500-year-old paintings of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden by the German painter Lucas Cranach the Elder, had sought a rehearing before all of the court's judges. The ruling could mean that barring a successful appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court, families whose art was stolen during the Holocaust and now is owned by a California museum or gallery have lost their right to circumvent the usual three-year statute of limitations in suing for its recovery.

This is the pathetic, pitiful little girl of T.J. Simers' Jan. 25 column. I have been vindicated by my first sports idol, John Elway. He has restored faith in all my sports idols, past and present. I now believe that Billy Joe Tolliver really could hit the Pacific Ocean if standing at the end of Crystal Pier. I now believe that Bill Hanzlik could coach the Denver Nuggets to a winning season. I now believe that Ron Powlus just might be the No. 1 draft pick this year. John Elway has restored my faith, but I will forever owe my father for exposing me to my idols.

He is home in Irvine, but also back in Minnesota frequently, where his mother-in-law, Barbara Bachman, has recovered from the stab wounds she suffered in the attack at a tourist spot. The same attacker, Tang Yongming, killed her husband, Todd, the 62-year-old chief executive of a Minnesota gardening business.
