As the fax machine in bicycle designer Richard Cunningham's office beeps a trouble signal, he pokes his head through the door to the workshop to see who is trying to send a fax. Eddie Rea, who is one-third of the team building bicycle frames at Mantis Bicycle Co., is trying to reach Northumbria but isn't sure whether that's in England or Scotland. Going global has its problems. Last year the company dialed Mexico by facsimile and, because of a glitch, reached the Soviet Union--20 times.

A father and son are accused of stealing more than $1 million from the church where they worked as pastors. Richard W. Cunningham, 74, and Philip L. Cunningham, 50, allegedly stole the money from the Calvary Baptist Yorba Linda Church over a five-year period ending April 2006, Orange County prosecutors say. Prosecutors accuse them of also racking up unauthorized expenses on church-issued credit cards. The Cunninghams are free on their own recognizance and will be arraigned today.

It is not clear whether Doug Smith misunderstood or Ranger Dennis Hamm is misinformed, but the bow-driven fire drill demonstrated on a mountain hike (Sept. 30) is not a Chumash tool. As a matter of fact, the venerable bow type fire drill was unknown to the native Californians. California fire makers used a hearth in which a dowel-like shaft or drill was mated, then rotated or spun between the palus, while maintaining constant downward pressure: a neat trick. The trick, by the way, is so neat that I know of only one living fire driller.

Billiards players will have to chalk up their cue sticks elsewhere because the City Council this week denied a permit for a 5,600-square-foot billiards and pizza business. The council cited overwhelming opposition to the proposed Yorba Linda Family Pizza and Entertainment Center as well as potential parking problems in reaching its unanimous decision.

Two-thirds of the workers present at an Oklahoma uranium-processing plant during a January accident probably suffered kidney damage from inhaling uranium compounds, and doctors do not yet know if any will show permanent harm, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission was told Thursday. One worker was killed in the Jan. 4 accident at the Kerr-McGee Corp. subsidiary, Sequoyah Fuels Co., near Gore, Okla., from inhaling deadly hydrogen fluoride gas.

Motorola Inc., the largest maker of communications chips, said Monday that it invented a method of fusing two widely used semiconductor materials that may reduce the cost of making mobile phones and other gear. The company said it found a way to attach gallium arsenide, the main compound used in some chips critical to cellular phones and optical-networking equipment, to silicon, which costs one-tenth as much.

The worker who died in a gas leak at an Oklahoma nuclear fuel plant was killed by a lethal dose of acid, not radiation, a Nuclear Regulatory Commission official said Monday. Richard Cunningham, NRC safety division director, said James Harrison and five other workers at the Kerr-McGee plant in Webber Falls also may have inhaled "a small amount of uranium," but their burns and respiratory distress were caused by chemicals. Two of the five workers remained hospitalized Monday.

Hundreds of high school students lined up outside Roybal Learning Center near downtown Los Angeles on Saturday in letterman jackets and the kind of windbreakers worn by Olympians. Members of the Van Nuys High School team had black paint streaked on their cheeks like savage warriors heading into battle. Instead, the students marched into the school's gymnasium to answer questions about colonization, wars and imperialism as part of the Los Angeles Unified School District's regional Academic Decathlon competition.
