As a boy, Patrick Manyika looked up and watched packages of corn and canned fish fall from the sky. An airplane streamed overhead, dropping supplies to the hundreds of refugees living in isolation in the rolling hills and forests of northeast Rwanda. The relief packages read "USAID" - it was the first word he would learn to read. Manyika lived as a child in exile on the land of a national park, survived the Rwandan genocide as a teenager and eventually made his way to a private university in Southern California.

Redlands is one of the last agricultural zones left in the Inland Empire, and its Saturday morning farmers market - though overshadowed by its giant Thursday brother - is thriving. But while the Thursday market seems to be primarily a social event, dominated by prepared foods, music and crafts, the Saturday morning market features many small, local growers who sell in person and offer a good balance of basic and specialty produce. Glencairn Farm , started by former mayor Bill Cunningham, offers excellent summer citrus, including Valencia oranges, Chislett navels, Redblush grapefruit and a few Variegated Pink lemons.

Residents and hikers in Redlands have been put on notice after two mountain lion sightings were reported recently in the city's canyon areas. The last reported sighting occurred about 9 p.m. Saturday on Sunset Hills Lane near Horse Trail Drive, which is in a neighborhood that abuts hills in the San Bernardino County community. A similar sighting was reported in the same area last week. While hundreds of mountain lion sightings are reported annually in California, attacks are few and fatalities rare.

REDLANDS - Reading books like "Clifford the Big Red Dog" was a chance for 11-year-old Tifaha Farha to bond with her mother, Salwa.

"She helps me with my reading because it wasn't that good," said Salwa Farha, who acknowledges that her heavy Arabic accent can be a challenge for her children as well when speaking English. "Now, she can help me with her [younger] brothers and sisters.

He gained more than 1,700 yards and scored 20 touchdowns as a senior last fall.

A lead from a 10-year-old rape case has led to the arrest of a man suspected of killing a 23-year-old Perris woman, according to authorities. Police arrested Sue Robert Seiuli, 34, late Saturday afternoon in connection with the February slaying of Sylvia Marie Flores, whose body was found in a Redlands orange grove. A key break came with a DNA match linking the slaying and a 2003 San Bernardino incident in which a woman was kidnapped, assaulted and raped. No arrest was ever made in that case, but Redlands police decided to interview the woman.

A Redlands high school teacher who was placed on leave more than 2½ years ago is set to face accusations in court next week that she sexually abused one of her students, even checking the girl out of school so they could be together. Megan Kelly, a teacher at Redlands East Valley High School, was not charged when prosecutors reviewed the case in 2011 but is now being dragged into civil court to face her accuser, a former student who says the instructor preyed on her typical school-girl weaknesses and, over time, began sexually abusing her. The student, who is not being identified because of the nature of the allegations, is suing Kelly for sexual battery and emotional distress, and the school district for failing to prevent the alleged attacks.
