  • Kidnapping captivated Las Vegas, NM, a century ago

    LAS VEGAS, N.M. (AP) — The two Colt six-shooters are relics of a bygone era and of a sensational kidnapping case that "stirred the city to its foundation" a century ago.

    The kidnapping of 2-year-old Waldo Rogers from his home near the New Mexico Highlands University campus generated relentless media attention with coverage in the New York Times and daily updates in the Optic.

    "Presented to Tim O'Leary by citizens of Las Vegas, N.M. April 1911," reads the meticulous engraving on the barrel of one of the silver-plated guns. The other is inscribed to A.A. (Apolonio) Sena.

  • Jane Russell, star of '40s and '50s films, dies

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Jane Russell, the busty brunette who shot to fame as the sexy star of Howard Hughes' 1941 Western "The Outlaw," died Monday of respiratory failure, her family said. She was 89.

    Although Russell largely retired from Hollywood after her final film, 1970's "Darker Than Amber," she had remained active in her church, with charitable organizations and with a local singing group until her health began to decline just a couple weeks ago, said her daughter-in-law, Etta Waterfield. She died at her home in Santa Maria.
