One year ago: Pope Benedict XVI, during his visit to Washington, talked and prayed privately with survivors of the clergy sex abuse scandal in what's believed to be a first-ever meeting between a pontiff and abuse victims.

Watercooler Talk
NEWARK, Del. (AP) - Police said a 22-year-old man broke into an apartment to steal $82 worth of chicken wings and Hot Pockets.

Police arrested the man on Wednesday and charged him with breaking into the apartment last month. Detectives said two people were sleeping inside their apartment about 3 a.m. on March 18 when the man broke in.

Police used video surveillance systems at the apartment complex to help identify the suspect.

Police said one of the stolen frozen food items was found at his home and he was arrested.

Police said he tried to enter six other apartments but the doors were locked.

A caption in Thursday's paper ("Boys & Girls Club Brings the Magic," April 16) should have identified the men in the picture as follows: Mark Wray, right, assists fellow magician Glenn Crites with his close-up routine as he practices for An Evening of Magic to be held Saturday at the Newhall facility of the Boys & Girls Club of the Santa Clarita Valley.
