Connie Interlicchia was in her Upland home Monday morning, working on her laptop computer in the kitchen, when the house shuddered and chunks of metal started raining into her backyard. She grabbed her purse and her Chihuahua and dashed outside, where she found a mangled twin-engine plane parked on her garage roof. "I looked up and I saw these guys on the roof. I asked one guy, 'What happened?' " Interlicchia said. "But they were too hurt; they couldn't talk."

An apparent aftershock of the Upland earthquake on Feb. 28 shook the Upland-Pomona area at 10:25 p.m. Wednesday but apparently caused no damage or injury. Caltech seismologists said it was centered in the same area as the earlier temblor, 4 miles northeast of Upland. Upland police dispatcher Sharon Goodwin said, "I sure did feel it but we only got a few calls on it." Pomona police said they hadn't felt it nor had they received any calls.

The earthquakes that rattled both Northern and Southern California on consecutive days this week even startled a few scientists, although they insisted there is no reason to believe that the widely separated earthquakes were related events. "We're uneasy when we see earthquakes popping off all over the place," said William Ellsworth, a seismologist and geophysicist with the U.S. Geological Survey in Menlo Park.

This time around, there was little call for a wrecking ball, and barely a bulldozer was needed. No bridges had collapsed, no city blocks were ablaze, no World Series was postponed. The Jaws of Life were held in reserve, awaiting the next freeway smashup. Call it the handyman's earthquake, more a fix-it job than a catastrophe. The Moderate One was made to order for a putty knife in the hands of a glazier, and a good excuse for do-it-yourselfers to stay home from work.

The store would have been part of a new retail center between Foothill Boulevard and Baseline Road, although the center's developer had not yet signed a formal contract with Wal-Mart, city officials said.

A Superior Court jury ruled Tuesday that a 14-year-old boy from Upland was sane when he fatally shot his mother and younger sister more than two years ago. The decision means that Paul Yum, now 17, faces 80 years to life in state prison when he is sentenced in February. "His mother's family has been here throughout this trial," defense attorney Angela Oh told jurors outside court. "They want him to have a life and a future, and now he's not going to have one.
