BART announced late Thursday an end to a four-day strike that had ground to a halt the Bay Area transit agency's trains. Officials made the announcement at a press conference just before 11 p.m., saying negotiations with striking unions will continue and that service will begin again Friday afternoon. The 104-mile rail system shut down Monday, leaving 400,000 weekday riders scrambling for transportation. The biggest sticking point is money. The unions initially had asked for a 5% raise per year for three years, with inflation protection.

Jim McGinn, a TV writer and producer, moved into his Pacific Palisades home on July 1, 1967. Three days later, the world, or so it seemed, streamed by the neighborhood newbie's front door. "That's when we found out about the parade," McGinn said. Pacific Palisades' two-hour Fourth of July procession - replete with bands, dogs wearing flag bandannas and kids riding bunting-bedecked bikes - is the centerpiece of the coastal enclave's rapturous celebration of Independence Day. "It is not the Rose Bowl Parade, with million-dollar floats coming down the street, but it is one of the best hometown parades you're going to see," said Robert Weber, 45, president of the Palisades Americanism Parade Assn., the organizing committee.

Sacramento-area police have arrested a 16-year-old boy in connection with the April slaying  of two elderly Davis residents. The arrest was announced Monday after local and federal authorities served multiple search warrants. Authorities were seen at a home near where 87-year-old Oliver Northup, an attorney, and his wife, 76-year-old Claudia Maupin, were found dead. Police say the 16-year-old Davis resident, who is not being identified because he is a minor, is the only suspect in the case.
