The FBI arrested a San Bernardino middle school teacher Tuesday on suspicion of child pornography for allegedly exchanging sexually explicit photographs with a 13-year-old girl in New Jersey. Eugene Ballantyne, 29, was taken into custody at his Running Springs home early Tuesday morning. Ballantyne told investigators that he also received sexually explicit pictures from a 15-year-old girl two years earlier and traveled 180 miles to have sex with a 17-year-old girl in July, according to a FBI affidavit filed in federal court.

A federal bankruptcy judge Friday rebuffed an effort by the state's pension system to sue San Bernardino and force it to meet its $1.7-million-per-month obligation to public workers' retirement funds, a decision that could have wider implications in the ongoing public debate over public pensions and municipal debt. U.S. Bankruptcy Court Judge Meredith A. Jury said requiring the financially troubled city to make payments to CalPERS would be a "death knell" to San Bernardino's effort to rebound from financial ruin.

The city of San Bernardino will raid restricted funds to pay its employees and try to remain solvent while it seeks protection in Bankruptcy Court. The decision came after a marathon Wednesday night meeting rife with finger-pointing and political sniping over how to slash city spending by nearly a third. In the end, the council postponed action on a budget and opted to do what city officials had previously done to forestall the fiscal crisis - borrow from funds not intended for day-to-day expenses, a practice that has drawn federal scrutiny of the city's books.

For Scott Beard, San Bernardino's decision to file for bankruptcy was just the last in a long list of grievances against the city where he has lived for 15 years. He saw crime worsen and more panhandlers on street corners. He saw an exodus of residents and businesses. He saw the city's core hollowing and its pride evaporating. San Bernardino, he said, has been in "substantial decline and spiraling downward. " The common denominator in all of this, he said, was the city's leadership.
