Hours after a senior Iranian court official declared an end to courtroom proceedings for 13 Jews accused of spying for Israel, more than 400 Angelenos gathered for a candlelight vigil half a world away to renew their demand that the prisoners be released.

For many of the students on the chartered bus that collided with a FedEx freight truck Thursday, the rare all-expenses-paid trip was the first time anyone in their family had been courted by a college. The students were part of a 20-year-old program called Preview Plus that seeks to enroll low-income students and those who are the first in their families to attend college. Many of them are Latino and African American, although the state ban on affirmative action forbids public universities from using race or ethnicity to specifically target students for enrollment.

When Alex Zamora randomly picked an education course from a list of electives in September, he hoped it would be an easy class he could breeze through on his way to graduation. But when the 17-year-old senior learned he would have to tutor elementary school kids to pass the class, he figured he was in for a long year. All that changed, however, once Alex began tutoring fifth-graders at Lankershim Elementary School, the same school he attended as a youngster.

Newport Beach police are searching for a 28-year-old tutor suspected of helping a group of Orange County high school students hack into a campus computer system to change grades and access tests. The private tutor, 28-year-old Timothy Lance Lai of Irvine, is wanted for questioning on suspicion of helping the students at Corona del Mar High School hack into the computer system, but his whereabouts are unknown, police said in a notice issued Thursday. Lai, who was not affiliated with the district, allegedly showed the students how to hack into the computers by using a device known as a key logger, officials  told KTLA-TV . “They plug this device into the back of the computer, on the keyboard cord, so it's not even identifiable,” Newport-Mesa Unified School District spokeswoman Laura  Boss said.
