Powerball tickets sold in San Jose, Taft have 5 of 6 winning numbers
SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - California Lottery officials say two Powerball tickets sold in California have 5 of the six winning numbers.
Lottery officials said late Saturday that tickets sold in San Jose and Taft matched 5 of the six numbers in the near-record jackpot estimated at about $600 million.
They can't say yet exactly how much money those tickets will be worth.
National lottery officials say one ticket bearing all six winning numbers was sold in Florida.
Those numbers were: 10, 13, 14, 22, 52 and Powerball 11.
The jackpot was reset at $40 million for Wednesday's drawing.
BAY BRIDGE-RUSTED TENDONS
Report: steel tendons left exposed on Bay Bridge
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Thousands of steel tendons used to strengthen the skyway portion of the new eastern span of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge were exposed during construction to rainfall and salty bay mist, leading to corrosion concerns.
The Sacramento Bee reports that California Department of Transportation engineers in 2006 discovered that the ducts containing the tendons had been left unsealed, exposing the steel tendons.
Caltrans examined hundreds of the tendons and said it found little significant corrosion, but experts who reviewed the study raised questions about the agency's testing methods.
University of California, Berkeley engineering professor Thomas Devine told the Bee that Caltrans' tendon tests were inadequate.
Most experts agreed the mistake wouldn't result in a bridge collapse during a quake, but could make portions of the skyway unusable after a temblor.
1 of 2 fires north of LA contained
SANTA CLARITA, Calif. (AP) - A wildfire burning in the hills along Interstate 5 north of Los Angeles has been fully contained.
Los Angeles County fire officials said the 712-acre blaze was fully contained late Saturday after it broke out Friday and briefly threatened an elementary school and about 20 homes.
Another fire that broke out Wednesday near Frazier Park is 85% contained after consuming some 4,358 acres.
That blaze was not threatening any homes or buildings but fire officials say fighting it difficult because of the rugged and hard-to-reach terrain.

Body found near search site for missing CA hiker
BIG BEAR, Calif. (AP) - Search and rescue crews have found a woman's body in the same area near Big Bear where a female hiker went missing early this week during a day hike.
San Bernardino County sheriff's spokeswoman Cynthia Bachman said Saturday that the coroner must still identify the body.
Crews have been searching for 59-year-old Karen Dalman since Thursday after she got separated from a friend while hiking on Crystal Mountain on Tuesday.
The friend's dog escaped during the hike and Dalman and her friend got separated while looking for him.
The friend was able to hike out and alert authorities Thursday morning.
Bachman says the body was found in a remote area in a natural drainage about a mile from where the search began.
SIERRA PLANE CRASH
Pilot killed in Sierra plane crash
TRUCKEE, Calif. (AP) - Federal investigators are trying to determine the cause of a small plane crash that killed a pilot near the Sierra town of Truckee.
The Federal Aviation Administration says the pilot was flying alone when the twin-engine Cessna 421 crashed Thursday afternoon in the Tahoe National Forest about 15 miles northeast of Truckee.
The pilot's name wasn't immediately released.
The plane was en route from Santa Clara to Reno, Nev., when it went off radar about 20 miles west of its destination.
Witnesses reported seeing a fireball in the sky before the plane went down.
The FAA says the plane was registered to Reno-based Tri-Wings LLC.
The National Transportation Safety Board is leading an investigation into the crash.
Edward Furlong arrested in West Hollywood
LOS ANGELES (AP) - A Los Angeles sheriff's spokesman says 'Terminator 2' star Edward Furlong has been arrested on suspicion of violating a restraining order filed by his ex-girlfriend.
Sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore said that deputies responding to the scene Thursday in West Hollywood found Furlong hiding in a nearby property.
Jail records show he was released Saturday just after noon after being held on $100,000 bail.
In March, the 35-year-old actor had been sentenced to six months in jail for violating his probation in a 2010 case for violating a similar restraining order.
He has been the subject of such orders taken out by both his ex-wife and ex-girlfriend.
The actor was also charged in January of battery of an ex-girlfriend.
