Good through 101199 Calif, girl chained to her bed for years The Associated Press NORCO, Calif. For years, a little girl lived chained to a bed in a darkened room so filled with trash and feces that her mother tried to blanket the putrid smell with baby powder. So repulsive was the home, officials said, that paramedics eventually rescued the girl last week through a window because they couldn't bear walking back through the stench. Residents in this rural Southern California town now say they long suspected something was amiss at 1531 Elm Drive. But as the years passed, no one dared cross the vaguely drawn line that separates a good neighbor from a meddlesome one. "I would have given anything in the world to be wrong," said DeVora Antisdel, a former Elm Drive resident who finally made the call that led to the girl's rescue Tuesday. "Unfortunately, it's all too real." Paramedics estimated that the girl, Betty, is about 6 years old. She was in fair condition at Loma Iinda University Medical Center, said hospital spokeswoman Julie Smith. After the rescue, neighbors recalled strange behavior by Betty's mother, Cindi Sue Topper, and that the girl's grandfather, Loren Bess, was a recluse. Still, residents, said, there were no obvious signs of neglect, no screams or other loud noises coming from the house. Aaron Hawkins didn't think about calling police because he didn't even believe the child existed. "I thought it was (Topper's) brain, kind of wacko. She just kept rambling on, over and over again," said Hawkins, 31. Not on prior sales. I N. Korea to suspend missile tests, U.S. says SAVE 50.

Call Toll Free 1-800-989-1800 statement as a de facto moratorium and, as such, an extremely significant development "We are confident that North Korea understands our concerns and we don't expect there will be a missile launch," State Department spokesman James P. Rubin said. A senior administration official who declined to be identified said, "We believe this is an important step forward. Based on this statement, we don't expect North Korea to test ballistic missiles." A Japanese foreign ministry official expressed "hope that this process will proceed further and that peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula will be secured." In return for the commitment from North Korea, U.S. officials say the United States would be prepared to consider easing punishing U.S. economic sanctions that have been in force for more than four decades. The North Koreans stunned the West and some of America's closest allies in Asia one year ago when they fired a three-stage Taepodong I missile that flew east over Japan. Pyongyang insisted it was launching a space satellite, but arms control specialists harbored few doubts the missile could easily carry warheads capable of reaching Japan and U.S. officials are confident N. Korea won't launch missiles. The Los Angeles Times WASHINGTON After three years of diplomatic efforts and a summer of nervous tension, North Korea effectively agreed Sunday to suspend further missile testing, senior U.S. officials said. As is so often the case in dealings with the opaque Stalinist regime in Pyongyang, the language of the joint statement issued after a week of low-profile negotiations between U.S. and and North Korean officials in Berlin was indirect and contained no specific commitment from North Korea to refrain from further missile tests. Instead, it stated only that, as the talks continued, each side "would endeavor to preserve a positive atmosphere conducive to improvement of bilateral relations." "We agreed to make further efforts to solve apprehensions both sides face," said the senior North Korean negotiator, Deputy Vice Foreign Minister Kim Gye Gwon. He made the comment after the talks Sunday, according to the Japanese news agency Kyo-do.
