Today's Highlight in History: On Feb. 14, 1920, the League of Women Voters was founded in Chicago; its first president was Maud Wood Park.

Five years ago: A powerful bomb assassinates former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri and 13 other people, devastation that harked back to Lebanon's violent past and raised fears of new bloodshed in the bitter dispute over Syria, the country's chief power broker.

Watercooler Talk
NORTH EAST, Pa. (AP) - Police in northwestern Pennsylvania suspect a scam in which people are asked to donate money to disabled firefighters was nipped in the bud when the con artist called a wrong number: that of the local fire chief. Crescent Hose Co. fire Chief Dave Meehl said the caller said he was "collecting money for disabled firefighters. Right off the bat, he said he took all major credit cards."

When Meehl told the man he was the fire chief, the caller hung up.

Police in the Erie suburb of North East, where Meehl is chief, said they've had no similar complaints in recent days. But Meehl said others have told him they've gotten similar calls.
