BOGUS MILITIA MARCHED IN PARADES
LOS ANGELES — They didn’t have Army haircuts. Their boots didn’t shine. And their uniforms didn’t look right.
ILS. Army veteran Joaquin Lim sensed something was amiss with the troop that had popped up at civic events in Southern (California’s Chinese-American communities. At a flag-raising ceremony honoring a Chinese holiday, the Walnut city councilman stopped one of the recruits and asked to see his military II).
"There were actually typos on the ID card,” Urn said. Right away, I knew something was wrong.”
Those suspicions came into the spotlight Thesday when authorities arrested the so-called "supreme commander” of the U.S. Army/Military Special Forces Reserve unit and charged him with duping Chinese immigrants into thinking they had truly enlisted in the American armed forces.

PERRIS, Calif. — TWo weeks after a pair of experienced skydivers collided and plunged to their deaths, a similar accident in southern California has left one skydiver dead and another in critical condition.
The jumpers’ parachutes collided and got entangled about 200 feet above the ground Friday, a day before a memorial jump to honor the victims of the previous crash, PfeiTis Valley Skydiving manager Dan Brodsky-Chenfeld said.

Spring storms kill 17 in 4 states
The Associated Press
The storms that smacked the Midwest and South with howling winds and pounding rain left 17 people dead in four states. The system plowed through the Carolinas on Saturday, bringing flash floods, hail and reports of tornadoes.
A tornado collapsed a church with six people inside near the South Carolina coast, but there was no immediate word on injuries, said Melinda Wadford with the St. Stephen Fire Department auxiliary. In North Carolina, emergency crews had to scramble to rescue hikers. They were also working to clear trees from roads and survey damage.
Meanwhile, residents were reeling in Alabama. A weather service meteorologist estimated that a tornado’s winds reached 140 to 150 mph.
Willard Hollon, his son Steve and daughter Cheryl all were killed when the winds roared through. Hollon’s wife, Sarah, his granddaughters and Steve’s wife survived.
“When I shined the light out there I could see it was all gone,” said Willard’s brother, Henley Hollon said.

COUPLE: SERIAL KILLER SUSPECT STALKED WIFE
SAN FRANCISCO — A man charged in four killings that have gained national attention because of similarities in the victim’s initials had set his focus on an apartment neighbor 30 years ago, an upstate New York couple said Saturday.
Margaret Prisco and ITiaddeus lorizzo said a detective contacted them last fall saying that Joseph Naso — who lived downstairs from the couple in a San Francisco apartment building in the early 1980s — wrote in graphic detail about torturing a then 23-ycar-okl ITisco.
"It's disconcerting. When you're that age, living in San Francisco, you don't have your guard up and thinking that someone is after you," Frisco, 53, told the Associated Press on Saturday from her home in New York.

I he missing miner’s name was not released.
"We are doing every effort possible to expedite this in a safe manner,” said Melanie f lennessey, a company spokeswoman. “It is a rescue mission.”
A 10-member rescue team was part of the rescue operation under way at the site in Mullan, Idaho, an historic mining town of 840 people. Baker said additional equipment was being flown in to allow crews to use a front-end loader remotely to dig away the material.
“We’re securing the ground as we go,” Baker said. "We’re doing everything we can to reach the employee. We’re just
very concerned for the miner and his family right now.”
Mike Dexter, Hecla spokesman, said the two employees had just Finished watering down blasted-out rock and ore when the collapse occurred about 75 feet from the end of the tunnel. Officials say it’s unclear if the entire 75 feet collapsed, or only a portion of it, possibly leaving the miner trapped on the other side.
“We don’t know if the collapse went all the way to the end,” Dexter said.
The mine employs 275 workers, about 50 of whom were underground.
