President Ferdinand E. Marcos said today that Gen. Fabian Ver will be reinstated as armed forces chief if he is acquitted in the assassination of Benigno S. Aquino Jr., and that the military will also be revamped. Marcos said Ver, on trial with 24 other soldiers and a civilian in the 1983 slaying of Aquino, will be reinstated as head of the armed forces automatically if he is acquitted. "For how long, we will decide when we get there," Marcos said.

They've got the tattoos, they've got the piercings, they've got BlackBerrys in one hand and half-caf mocha lattes in the other, and iPods plugged into their ears. Sure, they always look busy, but if you sneak up behind them in their cubicles -- which isn't hard, because that iPod is blaring Maroon 5 -- you find they're actually watching YouTube videos while instant-messaging with four of their tattooed, pierced pals.

Former Gen. Fabian C. Ver, the most trusted aide of former President Ferdinand E. Marcos, visited neighboring Malaysia and came within 15 miles of the Philippines, Defense Minister Juan Ponce Enrile said Friday. The former armed forces chief of staff, who fled with Marcos to Hawaii after a civilian-military revolt in February, traveled to Sabah, Malaysia, on a fake Lebanese passport, Enrile told a community group. Ver's Philippine passport was revoked after the revolt.

Prosecutors in the Benigno S. Aquino Jr. assassination trial suffered a major setback Friday when the Philippines Supreme Court ruled that statements made by armed forces chief Gen. Fabian C. Ver before an inquiry commission cannot be used against him in the trial. The decision also upheld the trial court's rejection of testimony by Maj. Gen. Prospero Olivas, who told the commission that Aquino's assassin was purported communist agent Rolando Galman.

Writer-director Chris Ver Wiel, in only his second feature, has some fresh ideas and knows just what to do with an ensemble cast headed by Christian Slater, with Tim Allen, Richard Dreyfuss, RuPaul, Billy Connolly and "Ally McBeal's" Portia de Rossi.

Marlene Ver Planck has almost everything one could ask for in a jazz-based singer of classic American songs: a gorgeous, musically pliable sound, a solid understanding of the linkages between words and story, and a sure and steady feel for rhythm. Working at the Jazz Bakery on Friday in one of her rare Los Angeles bookings, however, Ver Planck was missing one more important element: sufficient rehearsal time with her backup duo.

The crowd that gathered Tuesday for the Southern Section 4-A playoff game between Rio Mesa and host El Toro came in part to see Rio Mesa's Dmitri Young. Young, a shortstop who is expected to be taken within the first two rounds of the baseball draft, already has signed with Miami. He came into the game with 158 hits, 28 home runs and 126 runs batted in for his career.

After pitching near-flawless baseball for five innings, El Toro High School's Marc Ver Wayne and Irvine's Bobby Ray took a little bit of a beating in the sixth. And it was Ver Wayne who survived with the fewest bruises. Ver Wayne, a 6-foot-4 sophomore, pitched a three-hitter and the Chargers scored all their runs in the sixth inning in a 6-2 South Coast League victory at Irvine. Ray (5-1) had cruised through the first five innings, giving up one hit, a single by Chad Hoelker in the first.
