Mouse & Maples
"Locklear was born in Westwood, Los Angeles, California, the daughter of Diane (née Tinsley), a production executive for Disney, and William Robert Locklear, an administrator at UCLA [Bill Locklear has served in a number high-level administrative positions at UCLA (Dean of the School of Engineering, Registrar, Director of the Office of Residential Life, etc.).]. ... She is the youngest of four children and a cousin of Donald Trump's second wife, Marla Maples. She is of Scottish and distant paternal Lumbee ancestry. ... "
LUMBEE? - LOCKLEAR IS PART AMERICAN INDIAN:
"The 40,000+ members of the Lumbee Tribe of North Carolina reside primarily in Robeson, Hoke, Cumberland and Scotland counties. The Lumbee Tribe is the largest tribe in North Carolina, the largest tribe east of the Mississippi River and the ninth largest in the nation. The Lumbee take their name from the Lumbee River which winds its way through Robeson County. Pembroke, North Carolina is the economic, cultural and political center of the tribe. ... "
" ... Locklear attended UCLA as a Psychology major and during her first year, met a casting director. He couldn’t help but notice her fresh-faced, all-American look and encouraged her to take a commercial acting class. By the end of that year, she had begun to do guest spots on television and decided to drop out of university to pursue acting fulltime. ... "
"In March 2008, Locklear was involved in a controversy when a "9-1-1" call was made by a caller claiming to be her doctor who said that she was trying to commit suicide. The authorities arrived at Locklear's home shortly afterwards. Locklear's publicist has since downplayed the incident stating that Locklear had never requested any medical assistance and the Ventura County Sheriff's Department later stated that no further action was taken once they arrived at Locklear's Westlake Village home as she appeared to be fine. They did, however, state that they still believed the call to be genuine. ... "
Who Placed the 9/11 Call?
" ... As the call wasn’t made from the “Melrose Place” star’s residence, it was firstly thought that the false alarm had been the joke of a prankster. However, it was later revealed afterwards that it was Locklear’s shrink who made the telephone call. Her psychiatrist reportedly spoke to her on the phone and the star sounded distraught. The shrink feared that the suicide could stem from an overdose with anti-depressive drugs she was taking. ... "

Fwd: The Heathers Home Page ... How Very!
Sat, 29 May 1999
Years ago I saw this movie Heathers; and you will note in the above subject page, that in th one girls locker was an old 7 year old magazine, November 1979....now, that was the month of Jonestown.....one of the most vicious mind control programs this country ever participated in.
Christian Slater.....in a cafeteria.....takes out a gun......school kids are murdered....and this dear little sweet Wynona Ryder, played the major role, along with Heather Locklear and of course the sicko, Christian Slater.
This movie was the plan soon to be materialized.....it was all there. The movie first, then the deeds.....drugs, guns, and throw in that horrible ignorant level of religion....Littleton is a sick community....these kids were playacting. ...
Carol Lin, Heather's college Roommate at UCLA, was the Anchor who Broke the News of the 9/11 WTC Assaults
Carol Lin anchor[ed] CNN Newsroom on Saturday and Sunday evenings on CNN. She is based in Atlanta. ... Starting her career at CNN in 1998, Lin anchored CNN Early Edition, CNN Live at Daybreak and the former news-magazine program CNN NewsStand. Before joining CNN, Lin was with ABC News. Lin was one of the few journalists brought to the network by former CNN president Rick Kaplan after he left ABC News. Earlier, Lin was a weekend news anchor for KTTV in Los Angeles.
She covered the shootings at Columbine High School, the rebuilding of Kosovo, CNN's Millennium night coverage from New York City's Times Square (and did a chat with CNN.com users) and the fall of the Taliban in Afghanistan in 2001.
However, Lin will be most remembered as the first anchor to break the news of the terrorist attacks on the United States on September 11, 2001. She broke into a commercial at 8:49 a.m. ET, 3 minutes after the first plane hit and said:
"Yeah. This just in. You are looking at obviously a very disturbing live shot there. That is the World Trade Center, and we have unconfirmed reports this morning that a plane has crashed into one of the towers of the World Trade Center. CNN Center right now is just beginning to work on this story, obviously calling our sources and trying to figure out exactly what happened, but clearly something relatively devastating happening this morning there on the south end of the island of Manhattan. That is once again, a picture of one of the towers of the World Trade Center."
Among other recognition, Lin was the first recipient of the National IMAGE Award by the Organization of Chinese Americans.
Lin earned a bachelor's degree in political science from UCLA. Lin was a dorm mate with actress Heather Locklear at UCLA, mentioned by Locklear while a guest on Larry King Live in 1999.
The Day Heather Locklear Stood in For Newt Gingrich
Touch of Glamour for Politicians’ Fund-Raisers
By Mike Downey
October 16, 1998
I have heard of some clever ways to get people to go to a political fund-raiser, but this one takes the cake. Randy Hoffman is a Republican who is running for Congress against incumbent Rep. Brad Sherman, in a district that stretches all the way from Sherman Oaks to Thousand Oaks. ...
With election day a few weeks away, Hoffman is happy to receive the support of any powerful figure who can sway the 24th District’s voters his way.
Therefore, he was naturally quite pleased to have House Speaker Newt Gingrich committed to a fund-raising rally Thursday morning. Let’s face it, Newt is a plum on any Republican’s plate.
At the last minute, however, Hoffman’s people got the word that Gingrich would have to cancel. He was too busy in Washington, running the right side of the country. Well, no Newt is bad news. Hoffman had to hurry. He needed to find somebody fast to fill in for Gingrich–and he did:
Having a political event at which Newt Gingrich is replaced by Heather Locklear is a little like having a Hollywood premiere at which Brad Pitt is replaced by Janet Reno. But that’s what happened. Evidently, the actress from “Melrose Place” is a neighbor of Hoffman’s ...
She and her husband, rock musician Richie Sambora, have reportedly donated $1,000 to Hoffman’s campaign. ...
