Memories of the clean-cut young man who checked out of Room 102 on Monday will always remind Arnold's Motel manager Marlene Anderson that it is what you do not see in people that can pose the greatest threat. Dean A. Mellberg, 20, was calm, even pleasant, Anderson said, when she upbraided him for being late in paying his bill and checking out that day.

Behind a barbed-wire fence, maintenance workers were busy Sunday removing nuclear bombs from B-52s. For the first time in 40 years, the planes would sit with their bellies empty. The "alert" facility here, home base for the men and women who were poised for war on a moment's notice, was a ghost town Sunday. Nearly everyone had gone home. "It's kinda like winning the war," said Capt. Bruce Adams, a B-52 bomber commander who has served eight years at Fairchild, intermittently on alert.

In the bloodiest shooting rampage in this city's history, a gunman toting an assault rifle marched into the Fairchild Air Force Base hospital and opened fire Monday, killing four people and wounding 19 others before he was slain by a military police officer. The unidentified assailant sprayed random gunfire from an AK-47 as he strode through the base emergency room, into the hospital and a three-story annex, authorities said.

The Navy has canceled plans to use dolphins as underwater guards at its Trident submarine base at Bangor, Wash., citing budget cuts and changes in global politics. "The Department of Defense is taking drastic budget reductions and canceling programs all over the place," said Tom LaPuzza, a spokesman for the Naval Ocean Systems Center in San Diego. "But we will maintain the capability to move the animals there if the Navy changes their mind and re-funds the program," he said.
