An accused murderer on the FBI's 10-most-wanted list was arrested in San Diego after a resident recognized him from an FBI poster in a local post office.

Demonstrators, some dressed as trees, launched Redwood Summer on Thursday with a protest at a lumber-export company, promising to "put their bodies on the line" to block cutting of virgin timber. The 50 demonstrators were matched one-for-one by police who are on edge because of a bombing that injured two members of Earth First!, the group organizing the summer of protest. The demonstrators gathered at the Port of Sacramento outside Gene West Inc., which exports logs to China, Korea, and Japan.

Although I share Dan Neil's concern about any plans Paramount Pictures may have for the next "Star Trek" feature film, I do not agree that the "franchise" should be abandoned ("Galaxy for Sale," 800 Words, Oct. 1). Certainly the series' creator, Gene Roddenberry, wouldn't feel that way, nor do millions of "Star Trek" fans worldwide. What "Star Trek" does desperately need is some new blood. Hopefully with J.J. Abrams at the helm, the next film will get the ship and her crew back on course!
