SOUTHLAND: BRIEFLY : LETTER CARRIERS SET FOR FOOD DRIVE TODAY.

One of the nation's largest drives to collect food for the needy is scheduled today by the National Association of Letter Carriers in conjunction with the United States Postal Service and United Way.

Last year, letter carriers collected more than 45 million pounds of food across the country.

People who want to donate food should leave it near their mailboxes for letter carriers to pick up when they deliver the mail. Only unopened canned, dried or powdered food will be collected. Perishable food such as fresh meat, bread, eggs and cheese will not be accepted, nor will glass, cash or checks.

Ritchie Valens tribute scheduled for park

PACOIMA - The San Fernando Valley teen who made it big with hits like ``La Bamba'' and ``Donna'' will be remembered this weekend at Ritchie Valens Park, which was renamed for him a couple of years ago.

Valens was 17 when he was killed in a Feb. 3, 1959, plane crash in Iowa with Buddy Holly and J.P. ``The Big Bopper'' Henderson.

Born Richard Valenzuela on May 13, 1941, Valens was just hitting his stride and riding the pop charts with songs like ``Come on, Let's Go'' and ``Donna'' when he was killed. Several bands are scheduled to perform at the park today.

Man arrested in threat to state senator

SACRAMENTO - An Internet message declaring an ``open season'' on state Sen. Tim Leslie because of the lawmaker's authoring of a state measure that could have opened the way for the hunting of mountain lions has been traced to a 19-year-old college student in El Paso, Texas, according to authorities.

Jose Eduardo Saavedra was arrested on a no-bail warrant based on felony charges filed in Sacramento alleging that he made terrorist threats and threatened a public official, El Paso County Sheriff's Sgt. Don Marshall said.

Leslie, a Republican, represents the Roseville area of Northern California.
