Huntington Beach Rep. Dana Rohrabacher ratcheted up the pressure Wednesday in the controversial case of two convicted border patrol agents, demanding that a U.S. attorney who prosecuted the case either "testify or resign." Rohrabacher has been lobbying for months to get agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Alonso Compean pardoned. They are serving jail time for not following procedures when they shot a drug smuggler who was fleeing across the Mexican border. On Wednesday, Rohrabacher revealed documents that he said show the federal government allowed the drug smuggler, Osvaldo Aldrete-Davila, to cross the border freely, even after he may have brought more drugs into the U.S. U.S. Attorney Johnny Sutton and his team lied to the jury in the agents' trial, Rohrabacher said in a statement.

"To see God in everything makes life the greatest adventure there is." -- Unknown What started out as a three-hour tour for Gilligan led to years of the popular television show Gilligan's Island. What started out as a three-week bike trip for my husband Jon took a little longer than he expected to complete. Twenty-six years longer, to be exact. After graduating from high school, Jon wanted to celebrate by riding his bike across the United States, but he couldn't convince anybody to join him. A year later, Nick, a friend who was much like an older brother to Jon, agreed to join him for a scaled-down version of the ride.

HUMBERTO CASPA James Gilchrist, founder of the Minuteman Project, was just a few miles away from Costa Mesa last month to give a speech at the California Coalition for Immigration Reform headquarters in Garden Grove. There's little reason to doubt his love for this country -- but his tactics raise many concerns. Gilchrist is the man who led the controversial and highly publicized border patrols along the U.S. and Mexican border in Arizona a month ago. He has said he would like to extend his vigilante approach to California.

This corrects an earlier version. Authorities compared their ocean pursuit of drug runners over the weekend to a game of cat and mouse. Maybe, that is, if the mouse has to leave 5 tons of cheese behind to get away. In one of the biggest marijuana seizures in recent Coast Guard memory, authorities based out of Newport Beach announced Wednesday that they pulled nearly 10,000 pounds of marijuana out of the water over the weekend, the remnants of a three-plus hour chase with drug runners from Mexico trying to bring the narcotics into the United States.

For a photo gallery of the start of the race, click here. CORONA DEL MAR — Not even sunny skies or calm waters could hide the cloud hanging over this year’s Newport to Ensenada International Yacht Race which began Friday afternoon. Organizers saw a nearly 20% drop from the average number of yachts racing in the annual trip which traditionally culminates in a party in the Mexican border town. Due to recent drug violence in towns such as Ensenada, Tijuana, and Rosarito, many sailors and fans have scaled back their plans, or decided not to participate at all. The U.S. State Department issued a travel alert earlier this month warning because of the increase in carjackings and armed robberies in the area.

In the flap over the latest efforts to address illegal immigration, I have read in newspapers and heard comments (on TV and radio) that these people are all honest, hardworking individuals. That statement is just as wrong as saying they are all dishonest and only here for our welfare money. As usual, the truth lies somewhere in between those two erroneous conceptions. By our own government's estimate, 10% of them are criminals, not counting their illegal border crossing. At 12 million estimated to be in our county illegally, that means about 1.2 million are criminals.
