For 42 years, Ronald Foster didn't know he had a felony conviction for cutting up pennies. It seemed like a nickel-and-dime crime at the time. President Obama apparently agreed; last week he pardoned Foster and eight other people for unrelated crimes. Foster stands out among the list of convicted thieves, drug dealers and users. In 1963, he was earning $82 a month as a Marine at Camp Lejeune, N.C., when he and 16 others hatched a scheme to cut pennies into dimes so they could use them in vending machines, he said.

The result: A go-ahead touchdown for No. 12 Tennessee (3-0, 1-0 Southeastern Conference), and the turning point of a 24-10 victory over No. 17 Florida (2-2, 0-1) on Saturday, giving the Vols their second straight win at The Swamp. They also won there two seasons ago.

Kyle Browning and Duane Coleman added scoring runs, helping the Tigers (9-4) to their fourth consecutive victory.

Buena Park police Friday announced the arrests of five alleged gang members in connection with two shootings in April, one of which wounded a 5-year-old boy. "What makes this case kind of cool," said Sgt. James Banks, "is that we didn't have any information at all. "Our investigator just pounded the pavement, got people to cooperate and eventually gathered enough information to make some arrests."
