Two former officials of a Costa Mesa company were sentenced Tuesday in Orange County Superior Court for their role in schemes that bilked more than 1,000 consumers with a phony credit card offer, authorities said. Unlike other fraudulent telephone solicitations, the credit card scam involved asking consumers to send a relatively small amount--$198 for a one-time processing fee--instead of the thousands of dollars that hustlers of precious metals or other phony investments demand.

The owner of one of Southern California's largest defense subcontractors and one of his employees--who were both convicted of overcharging the government for parts of the B-1 bomber--were sentenced to prison Tuesday for inventing a tax scam to hide those illegal profits. Joseph Kasparoff, 55, of Encino, the owner of two Montebello aerospace firms, was sentenced to six months in prison; Harold C. Geyer, 71, of Brea, who was Kasparoff's messenger, was ordered imprisoned for three months.

Top officials of Super K, one of Southern California's largest defense subcontractors, were among three men convicted Monday for overbilling the Air Force on the construction of parts for the B-1 bomber. Joseph Kasparoff of Encino, owner of the Montebello firm, John P. Kasparoff of Newport Beach, its general manager, and Harold C. Geyer of Brea were convicted by a federal jury of conspiracy, felony false claims and making false statements to a government agency. The case stemmed from Super K's contract with Rockwell International to build about 100 bulkheads for the B-1 at a bid price of $47,000 for each part.

The West Coast will be sending a strong contender to the Kentucky Derby in Colonel John, who picked up an army of supporters after an impressive, hard-charging victory in the $750,000 Santa Anita Derby on Saturday in front of 50,358 in Arcadia. "This is a very special horse," said co-owner Bill Casner shortly after Colonel John, fourth going into the stretch, reeled in Bob Black Jack to win by half a length. Coast Guard, a 19-1 shot, finished third.
