Over the last decade, vacationers from Alabama and Georgia and Tennessee have transformed Destin from a sleepy fishing village into the crown jewel of the Florida Panhandle.

A federal grand jury on Thursday indicted 10 Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department narcotics officers--including all nine members of an elite team--on charges of stealing more than $1.4 million in seized drug cash and using much of that money to buy homes, luxury cars, jewelry and stocks. The 10 veteran officers were also accused of conspiring to take money from suspected drug dealers during narcotics raids over the last two years.

In the foothills of Mt. Fuji, just lightly dusted with snow this time of year, are the sprawling grounds of Taisekiji, the ancient temple headquarters of the Buddhist order of Nichiren Shoshu.

A suspected white supremacist who was caught three years ago with deadly bacteria was back in custody Thursday on charges that he and another man possessed anthrax, an even more lethal biological agent, "for use as a weapon." Larry W. Harris, 46, a microbiologist from Ohio, held up a vial at a hotel room here earlier this week and bragged to an associate that it contained enough anthrax to "wipe out the city," federal officials asserted in their criminal complaint.
