The Jacksons of Gary, Ind., rose to fame on pitch-perfect harmonies, synchronized dance moves and an unwavering devotion to family as personified by their pious and steadfast mother.

Michael Jackson's elderly mother learned that she had been reported missing when a broken television in her room at an Arizona spa suddenly powered on and began broadcasting a story about her alleged kidnapping, according to court documents filed Thursday. Katherine Jackson wrote that her companions at the isolated resort - a group identified in other court filings as including her children Janet and Jermaine - never told her that her grandchildren were trying to reach her. Her cellphone was taken when she arrived at the Tucson spa, her room phone didn't work and "when one of the people with me asked if I could communicate with my iPad and I replied yes, my iPad was also taken away," she wrote in the signed declaration.

The frustration was evident the first few times Lompoc touched the football Saturday night in its Southern Section Division VII semifinal against overmatched Los Amigos at Bolsa Grande High. A fumble snuffed out the Braves' first drive deep in Los Amigos territory and then a poorly executed field-goal attempt was partially blocked. When their second possession ended around midfield with a punt, Brave players could be seen pounding their fists into the damp turf.

Defending champion: Arroyo Grande, a 16-0 winner over Manhattan Beach Mira Costa. Seeded teams: 1. Covina (10-0); 2. Lompoc (9-1); 3. Beverly Hills (9-1); 4. Fullerton (9-1). Dark horse: Rancho Alamitos (4-5-1). The Vaqueros are one of two teams in the draw with a losing record.
