AP Writer RICHMOND, Va. (AP) ? Friends knew Richard Marc Evonitz as a nice guy ? a married Navy man who was active in his community. Lurking beneath that exterior, authorities say, was a ??sexually sadistic psychopath" who abducted and murdered a string of young girls. Evonitz, 38, fatally shot himself in June after police tracked him to Sarasota, Fla. He had been sought in the abduction and rape of a 15-year-old girl in Lexington, S.C. On Tuesday, police announced what investigators had suspected since soon after Evonitz's suicide: that he had murdered three Virginia girls in 1996 and 1997.

Ante la crisis económica que ha afectado el poder adquisitivo y el crédito de millones de familias, el sistema de apartados, conocido en inglés como layaway, ha vuelto a ser un recurso popular. “Esto puede ser una buena idea, pero debe de fijarse bien en los términos del sistema de apartados porque tiene ventajas y desventajas”, señala Connie Costello, educadora de asuntos del consumidor de Extensión Cooperativa de la Universidad de California. Ella explica los puntos a favor y en contra: Entre las ventajas están: - Usted podrá aprovechar las ofertas de la tienda e ir pagando poco a poco su mercancía.  - Podrá pagar por la mercancía que puso en apartado en determinado plazo, y no tiene que hacer la compra con cargo a su tarjeta de crédito; así se evita el pago de intereses.

Green is charged with the murder of his father, 62-year-old Melvin Green, Friday evening at their El Centro home. “I'm confident that by the end of the day Mr. Green is not going to be convicted of this charge of murder that he has been charged with today,” Neil Green's attorney, Ryan Childers, said outside the courtroom.

How does it affect the ownership having a car with a salvage title? Does it affect insurance? Is it a problem trying to license a car with a salvage title? Does it affect resale value?

BRAWLEY - City officials expressed mixed feelings about a halfway house for federal prison inmates scheduled to open within the next few months.

How many times do I have to go around Bucklin Park to complete a mile? - Exerciser, El Centro As a general rule, we've always heard and been told by friends and associates that Bucklin Park is a half-mile loop if you walk the outside-edge path one time. So, make that outside loop twice, and you've got one mile. When we started jogging, we found some Web sites that allowed us to map our routes so we knew how far we were traveling. We did that with Bucklin Park, and the word-of-mouth was true.

I asked if any fertilizer had been applied to the lawn recently and the reply was Ironite was used a couple of weeks ago. I suggested that the neighbor use a "turfbuilder" type fertilizer to strengthen the growth of the lawn.
