Former coal miner John Evans, believed the world's oldest man, died in his sleep Sunday at the age of 112. His daughter-in-law, Betty Evans, said he died in a chair beside his bed at his cottage in Forest-fach, near Swansea, Wales, after feeling "a little unwell" for a few days. The genial Welshman, who received a heart pacemaker more than four years ago, firmly believed his longevity was due to not drinking, smoking, swearing or gambling.

Strange odors. "It was real eerie," recalled Evans, who once lived above a mortuary. "Even for me."

(714) 498-TROP. A yuppie joint with charm. Sit leisurely under the thatched roof and sip tropical drinks while viewing the pier and surfers below. The most memorable feature, though, is found in the ladies room: a mural of Tarzan that lets out a yell in the bar when you pull down the Ape Man's loincloth.

A fourth-generation Californian from Ontario, Miller earned a degree in history from UC Riverside. He worked for the U.S. Treasury Department in its Internal Revenue Service and Customs Service.

Richard George couldn't decide what shocked him more: the continuous zzz-zzz-zap that surged through his fingers and up his arm, or that schoolchildren were allowed to buy the small, black-and-silver device that delivered the electrifying jolt. The "shock pen" -- available through gag-gift Web sites, at fairs and flea markets, and even from ice-cream trucks -- is the latest "toy" to vex teachers and school officials, including George, principal at Levi Dickey Elementary School in Ontario.
