An Anaheim councilwoman is being asked to resign following her online remarks that the fatal police shooting of a 21-year-old man had "saved us a trial. " Lucille Kring, who is running for mayor in the resort city, quickly apologized for her comments, but some residents said it was too late and urged her to step down instead. The relationship between police and residents in the densely packed core of Orange County's largest city has been strained for years and came to a head in the summer of 2012 when a series of shootings ignited days of street protests and angry demonstrations.

John Ziegler's tenure as NHL president began in 1977 with cantankerous Harold Ballard mocking him, in public, as an "office clerk" and a "know-nothing shrimp."

The forced resignation of West German parliamentary Speaker Philipp Jenninger shows that the 1933-45 Nazi era in German history still smolders and can erupt in national guilt and anger, analysts agreed Saturday. "It indicates that Germans are still extremely sensitive about what you can say or not say about the Nazi period," commented one Western diplomat with long experience here. "That history is still deeply etched in the German psyche."

KIEV, Ukraine - The most ardent foe of Ukraine's embattled president was freed from prison Saturday and rushed to the capital, where she was greeted by tens of thousands of supporters chanting her name, some so overcome by emotion that they fainted. Events in Kiev and around the country had the feel of a revolution nearing its culmination. Having retreated to his eastern stronghold, President Viktor Yanukovich fulminated in an Internet clip against "Nazis" and "bandits.
