Gary Moskowitz GLENDALE - Michael Kouri ain't afraid of no ghosts. Once, while standing alone in a public restroom, the door suddenly latched itself shut and did not open until he closed his eyes, took a deep breath and asked the ghost to leave him alone. At a lecture in the basement of the Boy Scout Service Center Wednesday night, psychic/historian Kouri discussed old houses in the Los Angeles area and his dealings with ghosts inside them.

It's been a year and half since the deadliest train crash in Metrolink's history killed 11 people and injured nearly 200. Yet, the victims and their families are no closer to justice. Multiple changes in defense attorneys have stalled a legal case that should already be well on its way to determining if Juan Manuel Alvarez is guilty of intentionally causing the Jan. 26, 2006, crash and of murder for parking his Jeep Cherokee on the train tracks near Chevy Chase Drive and dousing it with gasoline ?

"The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. "For out of the overflow of his heart his mouth speaks." (Luke 6:45; Holy Bible, New International Version). Have you ever had someone in your life who said mean things to you on a regular basis? Perhaps this person claimed to know Christ. Maybe you are aware this person does not have a deep relationship with God and this is how you explained their cruelty.

Looking at Paul McKenna Jr., one thing is clear. “It’s not a young person’s war anymore. I turned 50 on my way to Iraq,” he said. “But to look at young people who I met for the first time and then six months later was in a combat zone with them, and to see the growth, it gives us a lot to be proud of.” McKenna, a Unites States Marine from 1977 to 1985, tried his hand at acting, teaching and served as vice president of a transportation company before joining the Army National Guard about 16 years later.
