SAN DIEGO - Kris Warren, a Marine veteran with combat duty in Iraq, remembers the disorientation and other problems that kept him from reentering civilian life. Finally he mustered the courage to ask for help from the Department of Veterans Affairs in Los Angeles. With that help over months, he was able to reunite with his wife and children and avoid slipping into homelessness. Now, Warren, 36, is part of an innovative VA program set to begin in San Diego: a residential treatment facility exclusively for Iraq and Afghanistan veterans in danger of becoming homeless.

Actress Lindsay Lohan violated her probation Thursday by leaving a Newport Beach rehabilitation facility where she was to begin 90 days of treatment in a reckless driving case, prosecutors said. Mark Heller, Lohan's attorney, told Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge James Dabney on Thursday morning that his client had already begun her therapy at the Morningside Recovery facility after opting not to go to a Long Island recovery center. Heller told the judge the facility met all the conditions of Lohan's plea agreement in a case in which she was also convicted of lying to police.

SAN DIEGO - At the news conference that launched the sexual harassment drama involving Mayor Bob Filner, a former supporter demanded that he resign, then added that the next chapter was up to Filner. Five turbulent weeks later, the same is true. The scandal shows no signs of letting up despite demands by all nine City Council members that Filner step down. The 70-year-old Democrat has given no indication that he plans to quit - despite an avalanche of negative media coverage, numerous calls by political and business leaders that he resign and accusations by 16 women that he had made unwelcome sexual advances.

Meeting notes released reluctantly and under legal pressure by San Diego Mayor Bob Filner's chief of staff portray him as a tough, insulting and demeaning boss whose behavior shocked and disappointed even people who had worked for him in the past. "People in my off[ice] crying," according to one notation. But the notes also suggest what may be Filner's defense against a sexual harassment lawsuit filed by a former staffer: she was judged to be doing a poor job and possibly was angry that she was facing removal from her $125,000 a year post.

A Studio City-based teen counseling group is working to reopen Ventura County's only residential drug and alcohol treatment center for adolescents, hoping to fill what many say is a glaring void in services for the area's troubled youth. The Rainbow Recovery Youth Center for girls, which operated in a four-bedroom farmhouse on an avocado- and orange-tree orchard in Santa Paula, shut its doors in August because of lack of funding. It had six beds.

It was 9:15 on the night of May 27, and Cara Vanni was chatting with a friend on the phone, just like any number of San Clemente teen-agers. Suddenly the line went dead. A minute later, strangers appeared in her bedroom doorway. "My parents brought these three people into my room," Cara, 16, recalled. "At first I thought they were old friends of the family who were about to say they knew me when I was 4. They weren't."
