Ventura resident Marion L. Marshall died in an Oxnard nursing home Thursday after a long illness. She was 89. Marshall was born July 16, 1909, in Rochester, N.Y. She was an avid golfer and also enjoyed needlepoint and politics, said her son Robert of Ventura. "She was a pretty good golfer--she shot in the 90s," he said. Robert Marshall also remembers that a young, charismatic Irish senator was enough to persuade his mother to change her lifelong affiliation with the Republican Party.

Two Contra Costa County fire stations were broken into early this week while crews battled the wildfire raging in Mt. Diablo State Park. Firefighters' personal belongings were stolen from Fire Station 7 while crews fought to control the Morgan fire, said Robert Marshall, a spokesman for the Contra Costa County Fire Protection District. There also was an attempted burglary at Fire Station 3, but the crew was still inside the building, he said. Both stations are in Walnut Creek.  Marshall said he isn't aware of an incident like this happening before -- firefighters don't expect stations to be burglarized when they leave to protect the community, he said.  “It's just kind of unbelievable that somebody would think that that was a good idea to steal the belongings of people who are working to protect them,” he said.

THE LIFE OF BOB MARSHALL: A WILDERNESS ORIGINAL by James A. Glover (The Mountaineer Books: $17.95; 376 pp). In the great hall of conservation's heroes sits a man almost unknown to the world at large. Thoreau, Muir, Leopold, and Pinchot have made it as immortals; Bob Marshall, as yet, has not. James Glover has taken it upon himself to correct that situation. Born into a wealthy and prominent Jewish family in New York, Robert Marshall was an unlikely outdoorsman.

Golf is a spooky game. Occult forces are clearly at work as we play. Balls vanish in unaccountable directions, glass walls arise in the direction of the hole, putts run uphill.

Not long after he turned 40, Robert Marshall decided it was time for a career change. A successful optometrist since graduating from the University of Indiana in 1967, Marshall wanted to go back to his first love: horse racing. A bettor since he was 14 and a groom for Charles Waller at Atlantic City, N.J., while in college, he wanted to be a trainer. "I actually wanted to start training as soon as I finished college," said Marshall, who spent his summers during college working at the track.

A federal judge in Alexandria, Va., rejected an emergency request from a conservative state legislator that a feeding tube be reinserted into a severely brain-damaged man. Judge Albert Bryan held a hearing by telephone shortly after state Republican Delegate Robert Marshall made the request. The judge did not explain his ruling. Marshall had argued that depriving Hugh Finn of water and food violates Medicaid guidelines.

The man suspected of robbing a convenience store of about $200 Saturday night at gunpoint was later arrested based on evidence left at the scene: his wallet, police said. "Apparently he took out his wallet and then engaged a store clerk in conversation, robbed the store and forgot about the wallet," said Fullerton Police Sgt. Neal Baldwin. Police say Robert Marshall, 22, of Irvine used a chrome semiautomatic handgun to rob an AM-PM minimart in the 1200 block of Chapman Avenue about 10:30 p.m. Saturday.
