After four decades in prison for an Arizona mass murder he has always vehemently insisted he did not commit, Louis Taylor will sometime Tuesday walk out of the shadow of confinement -- a free man. Now 59, he was convicted in 1970 in connection with a Tucson hotel fire that killed 29 people. Taylor was 16 when he went to jail, sentenced to 28 consecutive life sentences. Now that crime and all that time will soon be in his past. He pleaded no-contest to the charges in a Tucson court, allowing the wheels of justice to move toward his freedom.

TUCSON -- Arizona police are investigating the deaths of two skydivers who collided and then plummeted to the ground after the canopies of their parachutes collapsed.

There are no guarantees in life. But UCLA freshman forward Shabazz Muhammad came close to making one. The Bruins, who lost to Oregon on Saturday, face sixth-ranked Arizona in Tucson on Thursday. “We have to win this game, especially after losing to Oregon,” Muhammad said. Muhammad took it a little further, taking personal responsibility. “I'm taking it upon myself to win this game,” Muhammad said. Easier said than done. The problems UCLA had against Oregon could pop up again in Tucson.

Mild temperatures make winter a good time to go horseback riding, hiking, mountain bicycling or just kicking back in Tucson -- and one dude ranch will pay you to fly there too. All-inclusive Tanque Verde Ranch offers up to $399 in airfare credit for guests who stay at least four nights. The deal: I like the Cold There? Fly Here! deal (even though it's far from cold here in L.A.) because of the credit, which guests receive when they present their proof of payment. Note that the perk is per booking, not per person.

In a city still reeling from a shooting rampage that killed six and severely injured a congresswoman, contrasting giveaways are being proposed for a handful of its working-class neighborhoods. One would dole out free shotguns to poor adults. Another would hand out free school supplies to needy children. Talk of the gun giveaway has divided residents in the Tucson neighborhoods of Midvale Park, Pueblo Gardens and the Grant-Campbell area. These communities now find themselves thrust in the middle of a nationwide conversation about gun ownership after they were singled out by a fellow Tucson resident as high-crime neighborhoods that he believed could benefit from free firearms.

TUCSON - This was a game the young UCLA Bruins seemingly had no business winning. Yet at the end, there was Kyle Anderson trying to give high fives to Arizona students, and finding no takers. There was Jordan Adams, weary from two days of illness, bouncing toward the locker room, grinning at the silence. There was Shabazz Muhammad having the last laugh, as the student section at McKale Center left behind the placards personally addressed to him - some funny, some not. Freshmen having fun. The 84-73 victory over sixth-ranked Arizona on Thursday probably won't sink in for a bit, at least with UCLA's freshmen.

Following are the names of the crew and some passengers who died aboard a Northwest Airlines jet that crashed after takeoff Sunday from Detroit's airport. Northwest on Monday released the names of the crew on Flight 255 and the names of three off-duty employees who were killed aboard the plane. However, the airline has said it will not release a passenger list, and Detroit officials said it would probably be Friday before a list would be available from the county medical examiner.

Reporting from Tucson — The Dodgers sent a part of their team to the Phoenix suburb of Surprise on Friday to face the Kansas City Royals. Another group traveled more than two hours from the team's spring-training complex to Tucson, where the Chicago White Sox were waiting for them. Matt Kemp and Andre Ethier were in the second group. So were fellow starters Dee Gordon, Juan Rivera, Mark Ellis and A.J. Ellis. Veteran reserves Tony Gwynn Jr. and Jerry Hairston Jr. also made the 130-mile trip.
