A city ordinance in Rancho Cucamonga requires that homes have tile roofs for "aesthetic harmony." But firefighter William Trudeau recently argued before the City Council that aesthetic judgments should be made by people, not the government. Trudeau, who wants to replace his leaky tile roof with composition shingles, said that in his experience fighting fires, tile roofs are slippery when wet and break too easily.

Donald Kurth stood in a New Jersey courtroom in 1969 at the mercy of the judge. A heroin addict, Kurth had been arrested for petty larceny and drug possession. His oversized jeans sagged at the waist. His belt had been stolen that week by a corner drug-seller in Harlem. Perhaps seeing a speck of promise in the 20-year-old, the judge offered him drug rehab instead of jail. Kurth balked. If he did the time, he'd be back on the street sooner. Consider it a gift and take it, his attorney told him.

"Thanksgiving is over, cooking is done and now we're on to Christmas," Darla Steffen said.

A San Bernardino County Superior Court judge ruled Tuesday there was sufficient cause to justify a double-murder trial for a 22-year-old man charged with the January slaying of two Rancho Cucamonga High School students. Lanny Woosley is charged with using a machine gun to kill seniors Blake Harris, 18, and Christopher Heyman, 17, atop the Haven Avenue overpass of the Foothill Freeway on Jan. 18. The charges make Woosley eligible for the death penalty if he is convicted.
