After facing a barrage of questions from reporters in Los Angeles, the Rev. Jesse Jackson on Thursday called off a series of newspaper ads and television commercials that feature the Democratic presidential hopeful as the paid spokesman for a national chain of business and vocational schools. When Jackson first arrived shortly after noon to celebrate his 46th birthday at a Hollywood fund-raising party, he seemed confident that the controversy over the ads was minor.

The Rev. Jesse Jackson on Sunday urged Americans to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on the first national holiday marking his birth by showing that the slain civil rights leader's "dream" was a "concrete reality."

Jesse Jackson assailed President Reagan on Thursday for taking part in the celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday while at the same time refusing to meet with civil rights leaders.

PITTSFORD, N.Y. — Fred Jackson's path to the NFL was much like one of his long, serpentine touchdown runs, the ones where he zigzags across the field and beats defenders not with blistering speed but an uncanny feel for changing directions at precisely the right time. That Jackson made it to the Buffalo Bills — and became one of the better running backs in the league — is an inspiring testament to his determination, because a lot of other players would have long since given up. His career didn't route him through Los Angeles, Ann Arbor, Columbus, Baton Rouge or any other big-time college football hub. Jackson went to Coe College — a Division III school in Cedar Rapids, Iowa — wasn't invited to the scouting combine and barely got a sniff from anyone in the NFL. He's now a centerpiece of the Bills, who open the regular season Sunday at the New York Jets.

Bradley Jackson, one of the top high school point guards in the state, has committed to Cal State Northridge. The 5-foot-10 Jackson will play this season at Inglewood High after transferring from South Torrance. Jackson was also being recruited by Tulsa, Florida State, Loyola Marymount and UC Santa Barbara. He chose Northridge because Matador Coach Bobby Braswell has recruited him since Braswell was an assistant at Oregon in 1995. "Northridge really looks like a good place to be," Jackson said.

Prosecutors and police investigators don't expect to file charges in connection with Michael Jackson's death before 2010, law enforcement officials told The Times. The officials said there was so much evidence to review -- some of it complex medical data -- that they have sought the help of outside medical experts. A decision on whether to file criminal charges is "months rather than weeks away," one source said. Jackson's personal physician, Dr. Conrad Murray, who provided the pop star with the anesthetic propofol that coroner's officials say killed the singer, has been identified in search warrants as a suspect in a manslaughter investigation and remains the focus of the probe.
