Spc. Paul T. Nakamura joined the Army Reserves against his father's wishes because he was a proud American, family and friends said on Saturday while remembering the gregarious 21-year-old killed in Iraq last week.

William Shakespeare strolled into the Whittier City Council chambers, smoothing his powder blue brocade tunic over navy blue polyester pants. He hurriedly secured a slightly off-center mustache and goatee, adjusted his black pancake hat and took a seat on the stage next to Mayor Gene Chandler. Shakespeare, played by Whittier Union High School District Supt. Lee Eastwood, picked up his script and read a few lines from the Bard's works in response to questions from Chandler.
