While her husband was still in the White House, Nancy Reagan and her entourage four-wheeled up a bumpy dirt road to a hilltop that offers one of the last unspoiled views in eastern Ventura County.

It was my great pleasure recently to travel to Nicaragua for the fourth time since the democratic elections of 1990 which freed the Nicaraguan people after 10 years of Marxist Sandinista rule. I returned to a hopeful and vibrant Nicaragua. I saw new businesses along the avenues of Managua. I saw people repairing and painting the insides and outside of their homes. I saw the streets being paved and new public facilities being built.

Noriega was convicted of eight of 10 drug and racketeering charges Thursday, two years after the United States took the extraordinary step of invading his country and arresting him.
