Fire claims lives, fire doors propped
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Tenants jumped from the windows or collapsed on top of one another in the halls as flames raced through an apartment house whose fire doors had been propped open. Seven children and two pregnant women were killed.
The fire began Monday on the second floor of the three-floor, 40-unit building in the heavily Hispanic Westlake section near downtown, Fire Chief Donald Manning said.
Manning said the fire doors, which could have stopped the spread of heat, smoke and flame, probably had been propped open because of warm weather.
The cause of the fire was under investigation.
Restore Hope to continue with U.N.
MOGADISHU, Somalia (AP) — As Washington transfers responsibility for Somalia’s problems to the United Nations, U.S. soldiers take pride in a mission that has almost eradicated starvation and stilled a civil war.
Yet the country remains far from ready to stand on its own. Somalia will need help for years to come.
The U.S-led multinational effort, Operation Restore Hope, has helped restore some semblance of order to a country that last year imploded in civil war, famine and disease.
Tuesday, the United States turns control over to the United Nations, which will call the effort Operation Continue Hope. More than 4,000 Americans will remain for about a year.
Navy pepper paint to stop barnacles
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Talk about a hot product.
A new, experimental maline paint made with red peppers is so fiery it will blister fingers. More important, it will prevent mussels and barnacles from attaching themselves to boats, buoys and intake pipes, says inventor Ken Fischer.
To make Barnacle Ban, Fischer mixed oil from cayenne peppers with an epoxy-based paint.
The peppery paint is environmentally safe, which should help it win approval from the Environmental Protection Agency, said Jon Luikart, director of vendor certification for McCormick & Co. The spice company is supplying the pepper.
Folkfest, Kindermasken activities sweep city

Home made into Rose Garden
Burckhard and Dawn Mann hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony on Tuesday, May 4 to celebrate the grand opening of ‘The Rose Garden Bed and Breakfast” at 195 South Academy Ave.
Burckhard, who was born and raised in Hannover, Germany, moved to America in 1975 and became a United States citizen in 1987. His German heritage along with Dawn’s English background was implemented in converting this half-century old home, which belonged to the McKenna family, into a unique yet comfortable and elegant Bed and Breakfast.
The Royal Rose depicts the love that Dawn has for her English ancestry. This room is graced with pictures and books of the English Royalty; which still includes Princess Diana and Fergie. Burckhard and Dawn have enhanced the ambience of this room with crystal glassware, flowered wall paper in addition to lace-edged sheets and pillow covers.
The Country Rose atmosphere is the complete opposite of the
Royal Rose. The bed is victorain style and constructed of iron and brass. The room’s wood paneling and hardwood floors makes this room truly country living. However, this does not diminish the comfortable and homey atmosphere that is felt throughout the house and garden.
Breakfast is served daily, either at the glass table in the formal dining room or in the rose garden.
