Riverside police say that an avowed white supremacist and onetime water district board candidate was shot to death in his home by his own young son. Jeff Russell Hall, 32, was southwestern regional director of the National Socialist Movement, a neo-Nazi group based in Detroit. Police were called to his home at 4:04 a.m. Sunday and found Hall badly injured and lying on a couch, Riverside Police Lt. Ed Blevins said. Paramedics tried to revive Hall, but he died at the scene, Blevins said.

Congratulations to the Oakland A's for again making a move that will help the organization in the short and long run. Many fans believe that the trading of an all-star such as Canseco for a couple of pitchers and an outfielder will be paid for in seasons to come. In fact, the ailing A's pitching staff picks up two respectable pitchers, a starter (Bobby Witt) and a reliever (Jeff Russell), and an outfielder (Ruben Sierra) to fill Canseco's spot. Sierra was having what was considered an off-year, but his numbers compare with Canseco's this season; and two pitchers were thrown into the deal, plus cash, for good measure.

Apprehensive about their bullpen and in dire need of a fifth starter, the Angels confirmed Wednesday they have had preliminary talks with free agent reliever Jeff Russell and three veteran starters. Russell, a two-time All-Star who has at least 30 saves in three of the last four seasons, is considered the most prestigious remaining free agent. If the Angels are successful in acquiring Russell, he would replace Bryan Harvey, who was selected by the Florida Marlins in the expansion draft.
