Tuesday's Headlines. No Surprises: Debbie Carona wants out
- Debbie Carona wants out: On Halloween day, the Weekly sat in a crowded Santa Ana courtroom and watched the odd trio of sheriff, wife and mistress twitching as they sat cuffed and in uncomfortably close quarters. Debbie Carona sat a lawyer away from her hubby and did not so much as look at him the entire time, though she seemed obsessed with the room's double doors. That chick wanted out and by George, she's working on it. Peggy Lowe at the Register reports that Mrs. Carona has asked that prosecutors specifically outline the case against her so she can begin “extricating” herself. Out of the 65 criminal acts detailed in the indictment, she's named in just seven and faces only one count of conspiracy.
- Hillary is coming to town: Madame Clinton will be speaking 1:15 p.m. Thursday at the annual Global Summit on AIDS and the Church at Saddleback Church in Lake Forest on a panel called "The Global P.E.A.C.E. Plan: Conversations with Leaders." She'll be joined by the guy some call the, er, "world's sexiest preacher." Other presidential hopefuls have been invited, and Martin Wisckol at the Register reports that four lazy louts have said they'd send a video instead of showing up in person.
- Story we didn't want to click on: Tree trimmer in Cerritos pinned and killed on the job.
- Taking it back at 5? The whole Disney housing hulaballoo may end this afternoon when Anaheim's City Council meets. The council is expected to repeal its decision to allow residential development near the resort area. Agenda here.
