Georgette Watson, honored by the President as one of his "thousand points of light" community volunteers, received death threats because of her support of police efforts to randomly stop and search suspected gang members, the newspaper said.

Nineteen deputy marshals have refused to report for evening and weekend traffic school duty at Municipal Court here until they are granted overtime pay and workers' compensation coverage.

Replacements for the traffic school sessions on Saturdays and weeknights will be found among the other deputy marshals who work in the county's five courthouses, he said.

The camouflage-suited men in the Miami motel room had a bold plan: slip into Nicaragua, steal a Soviet helicopter gunship and fly it out to collect an advertised bounty of $1 million. One of the leaders, the man armed with the German PPK .38 automatic handgun who called himself "Col. Flaco," advocated a second objective.

LONDON - Shortly before 9:30 a.m., Barbara Mulroney settles into her seat at the ExCeL Centre and thumbs through her souvenir table tennis program. Inside the booklet, the native Londoner sees the names of two athletes who will be competing in the preliminary rounds: Olufunke Oshonaike of Nigeria and Neda Shahsavari of Iran. Mulroney doesn't have the foggiest idea who they are or let alone how to pronounce their names. "No matter," she says, smiling. "I'm at an Olympic event. That's what matters.

Over breakfast at City Hall, an aide brought Mayor Pasqual Maragall what sounded like good news: In the absence of any foreseeable threat, the daily security bulletin by anti-terrorist experts protecting the Olympic Games was shrinking, day by day. "That's the problem," Maragall snapped. "We must fight not to let this become a routine. We've got to keep up the tension." Barcelona is slightly more than halfway home as host to the athletic world.

It was a weekday evening following the exhilaration of Holy Week, but St. Michael Catholic Church in South Los Angeles was still abuzz. There was a memorial Mass for a deceased parishioner, a spiritual encounter for couples, a women's prayer gathering and a session for new parents -- all conducted in Spanish. People arrived en masse as though headed to a sporting event, undeterred by a church bulletin noting five recent homicides in the vicinity. Word was just circulating that the Archdiocese of Los Angeles would soon have a new leader -- Archbishop Jose Gomez of San Antonio, Mexican-born, like most of these parishioners -- replacing Cardinal Roger Mahony, set to retire next year after a quarter-century guiding his hometown see. A pervasive sense of pride, even elation, greeted the news that a compatriot would become the heir apparent.

BOSTON--- Two bombs shattered the celebratory mood of the Boston Marathon Monday, turning the finish line into a zone of carnage that left at least three dead and more than 130 injured. The explosions hours into the 117th running of the iconic 26.2-mile race came well after the elite runners had finished, but near the time when the bulk of the about 27,000 runners were laboring toward the finish line.  Two bombs hundreds of yards apart went off within seconds of each other on what was also Patriots Day. Dazed and bloodied victims walked around seeking help as officials rushed to their aid, taking them to one of the medical tents that dot any marathon route.
