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.
