VATICAN CITY (AP) — Cardinals destroyed Pope John Paul Ilk ring and lead seal Saturday to formally end his reign, while the Vatican expressed confidence that jamming devices and other unprecedented precautions would keep the name of the new pope secret until it is announced to the world from a balcony overlooking St. Peter's Square.
The official nine-day mourning period for John Paul, which began with a tuner a1 attended by world leaders and hundreds of thousands of pilgrims, ended with a Mass celebrated Saturday afternoon in St. Peter's Basilica.
The destruction of John Paul’s Fisherman’s Ring and the seal marked a symbolic end of the pope’s 26-year reign and came during the cardinals' last meeting before they sequester themselves in the Sistine Chapel beginning Monday to choose a successor.
Vatican spokesman Joaquin Navarro-Valls said “specialized technicians” of the Vatican Gendarmeria had made sure no communications could emerge from the chapel and he said he was confident that no leaks would emerge from the conclave.

CITY DEALS WITH DEADLY SHOOTING — As the residents in this small Central Texas city deal with shock following a mur-der-suicide in which four people died this week, funerals were being planned.
Authorities think Erie Wayne Jacobs was distraught over his breakup with 22-year-old Angelique Riou when he broke into her family’s home late Wednesday, opened fire and then committed suicide.
Riou, her 44-year-old mother, Diana “DiDi” Norman, and 7-year-old brother, Trevor Elliott, were killed. Her 13-year-old sister, Brittney Gibney, and 41 -year-old stepfather, James Norman,
were seriously wounded.
“The focus of the whole neighborhood is to get things back together for the children as quickly as possible,” said resident Polly Edlund on Friday. “We’re trying to move forward. People are pulling together."
Police Chief Lee McVay said a few loose ends remain in what’s being called the deadliest crime ever in the city of 3,600.
“We’re just trying to put everything together now and determine the order of who was shot first,” he said.
around the time a registered sex offender unexpectedly visited her house, authorities said.
Hillsborough County Sheriff David Gee said he could not say whether the body was female, but said it was partially submerged in a creek about a half mile from Sarah Michelle Lunde’s home. It was found by a search dog.
Gee said he let Sarah's mother, Kelly May Lunde, know of the discovery.
BODY FOUND NEAR HOME OF MISSING GIRL - An
unidentified body was found Saturday near the home of a 13-year-old girl who disappeared
DETAINEES ESCAPE FROM U.S. DETENTION CAMP -
Eleven detainees upset about their treatment by U.S. captors escaped Saturday from the military’s largest detention center in
Iraq by climbing through a hole in the fence, and bombings around the country killed a dozen Iraqis.
Ten of the 11 escapees were recaptured after fleeing Camp Bucca, tile largest U.S. detention facility with about 6,000 prisoners, nearly two-thirds of all those in Iraq.
In the central Iraqi town of Madam, Sunni militants took about 70 Shiite males hostage and threatened to kill them unless all Shiites left the town, government officials said Saturday. Iraqi security forces were surrounding the area, trying to contain tile situation.
“There were about IOO masked men, riding in cars, roaming the city. They took hostages from the Shiite youth and old men, and demanded the Shiites leave the city,” said Haitham Husseini, spokesman for the Supreme Council of Islamic Revolution.

Some people can’t get enough of model trains
two Lionel trains passed before his eyes — a passenger and a freight that belched real steam!
“Cody’s been interested in trains since he was bom,” Kimberly said. “I Ie knew all die railroad crossings in town when he was a year old.”
It was true, Susan said.
“I Ie may not know all his letters yet, but he knows his R’s,” she said.
As mom watched, she thought about where all the interest came from. She thought she knew. It went back generations.
“His great-grandpa — my grandfather — was a train fanatic as well,” Kimberly said.
As it turned out, it wasn't all that easy getting Cody out of the Elks Club, either.
The Lionel was the first train up near the front door. There were several more spread around the room in all scales.
“We haven’t even gotten past this train,” said Susan, who only managed to herd the boy around the curve to another side of the Lionel layout. “We have others to look at here, too.”
Cody wasn’t hearing any of it, so he and his mom pulled up a chair alongside the Lionel and he kept watching as both trains, the passenger and the freight, came toward him from different directions.
A short distance away, the engineer adjusted his rheostat so they crossed, again, right in front of the boy.
“I like the engine!” he exclaimed.
“I want to drive the trains!” he said.
“You can’t right now, but you’ll be able to soon,” Kimberly said. “You have to get big like mommy.”
