SAN DIEGO -- Police Chief Bill Lansdowne said Tuesday that he will retire effective Monday, after 10 years as chief. Lansdowne, 69, became chief here in 2003 after serving as chief in San Jose and Richmond. Lansdowne talked recently for an hour with Mayor-elect Kevin Faulconer but said that Faulconer did not request his resignation. Faulconer will be sworn in Monday. The San Diego department, with 1,856 sworn officers, has long been considered one of the nation's best, particularly in the technique of community oriented policing in which police and residents meet frequently to discuss problems.

Analysis of 3,000-year-old pottery shards from the ancient Olmec capital of San Lorenzo and other sites contradicts the notion among some researchers that the Olmec civilization was the "mother culture" that laid the foundation for the Inca, Maya and other civilizations of Central and South America. Many researchers believe that the Olmec were the primary culture of the region, dominating, inspiring and ultimately raising the other chiefdoms to the level of civilization.

Authorities on Wednesday asked mourners not to place memorial items on the San Mateo-Hayward Bridge where five women died after flames consumed their limousine. Leaving flowers or items on the bridge where the fiery tragedy occurred could create a safety hazard, the California Highway Patrol said.

PHOTOS: Fatal limo fire The victims, four of whom were nurses , were going to a bridal party for one of the women who was in the limousine.
