After another baby dies after being left in a hot car, a mother recounts a mistake that might have cost her daughter's life.

Batman, you make a valid point. It's the same way the law was changed so that 2000 vehicles have toRead More stop on a dime because pedestrians are encouraged to walk in front of moving vehicles. Pedestrians are doing this at all intersections including signalized ones in which the law does not apply. When someone gets killed the law will change again.
RAS July 11, 2014 at 11:46 am
Should read 2000lb. vehicles.
susan July 11, 2014 at 11:53 am
Well, then you would have to weigh the risk of being killed in a car accident against being left inRead More a hot car. Since automobile accidents are the number one cause of death for children, I don't think this would be wise. There are very simple devices that activate when the weight of a child enters the car seat. If the key fob then goes away from the car without the child being removed it sounds an alarm. Do you know why this item almost passed for marketing but not quite? Because too many people think that they would never forget their child in a car and so don't think it's cost efficient. I would think that saving the life of one precious child would justify the cost, but what do I know? Clearly most people here would rather point the finger of shame then save a babies life.
Bryan Stow was beaten and severely injured at Dodgers Stadium in March 2011. A jury has found the Dodgers business entity negligent in its security for the stadium. Patch file photo.
Laura Tollefson July 10, 2014 at 08:12 am
About 20 years ago, my husband was hit in the face by a drunk dodger fan and the man continued untilRead More I showed up in front of the man---Pregnant--two weeks due and was yelling and asking him what he was doing and why he had hit my husband in the face. Someone from dodger stadium came and wrote the incident down but nothing happened---No apology---nothing. The guys simply hit him because the dodger ticket agent was taking too long---so he hit my husband in the face. I'm glad this has happened to the dodgers.
Douglas Quillin July 10, 2014 at 08:38 am
This article is a little confusing. LA Times says the jury found the Dodgers "shared just 25%Read More of the liability for Stow's injuries." Still, the law requires they pay for all of the injury expense. Well, I'm no lawyer!

Glad to see limits (hopefully) being place on high school football. The research shows time andRead More time again the damage being done to the human brain after consistent hits to the head. Minimizing the risk seems like the natural and best thing to do.
JMarsh July 10, 2014 at 02:15 pm
I totally agree with limiting the chance of brain trauma. One thing we need to remember is thatRead More junior high and high school students' brains are still developing.

Please everyone boycott this circus. Let them see that there is no place forRead More "entertainment" that is based on the suffering of these magnificent creatures - or any animal.
Woody McBreairty July 9, 2014 at 10:06 pm
People who object to animal cruelty will not attend this circus or any other that uses abused animalRead More acts & calls them entertainment. Taking children to see abused animal acts teaches them it is acceptable human behavior. The only hope to eliminate the use & abuse of tortured animals in the circus is to tell children the truth & teach them that it is wrong. Children naturally love animals & they will understand
N July 11, 2014 at 06:29 am
They claim on the one hand that the animals are well-treated, then turn around and say that theyRead More won't be able to bring them anymore once the ban on bull hooks, "goads and prods" goes into effect? I have seen the wounds caused by bull hooks from close up- people sitting in the audience can't, but if they were able to, they would feel sorry for the way the poor animals are treated. Many dogs like the mental exercises of training and working with a human, so I don't argue against canine performers, but elephants and tigers?? Come on, I thought we had long ago advanced beyond that nonsense!

Sugar is the new cigarettes
Snag man July 11, 2014 at 06:07 am
These people are a joke.... they approve aspartame (a real poison) and now are concerned aboutRead More sugar intake...... Seriously is a demented and twisted world we live in.
Shelli B July 11, 2014 at 10:49 am
People don't realize how dangerous sugar really is. We all know it's important to brush our teethRead More after eating sweets but we don't make the connection that that same corrosiveness effects ALL of our tissues. Imagine tooth decay in our arteries, or attacking the cartilage that protects the ends of our bones, our joints. These images and other examples of sugar in our bodies in action are never shown because there is a HUGE, Billion dollar industry that doesn't want us to realize how bad, bad, bad sugar is. Add to that the fact that sugar is an addictive substance. These facts have been known for many years but the sugar lobby is just as powerful and destructive as the substance they push.
Manhattan Beach Pier. The spot where a fisherman caught a juvenile shark on his line, which ultimately bit a swimmer passing by. Patch file photo.
pj July 9, 2014 at 05:23 pm
This fisherman was NOT trying to lead the shark he caught back out to deeper water....he and hisRead More group are LYING!!!! A five minute video of these imbeciles laughing, cursing and saying the "R" word is proof enough. They were enjoying watching the shark struggle and enjoyed it when the shark in their words "f---en jumped right on top of him" when in actuality the shark really bit the man. Then you hear "He didn't get bit...he just S--- his pants." And some of the group of morons are still heard to be laughing. They should all be charged...wrong call Capt. Rebecca Hartman...did you not see this video???!!!! Jason...u and your moronic crew are white trash but for today, lucky white trash.
Chris Winter July 9, 2014 at 06:30 pm
It is not illegal to fish for shark, it is illegal to take great whites. There are many species ofRead More shark similar to Great white until it is identifiable the fish can be kept on the line. It is illegal to swim in the ocean beyond the scope of lifeguard safety and it is also illegal to swim within 100 ft of the pier. The pier was built for fishing in mind and in part paid for with tax dollars collected from a tax on fishing tackle. Additionally fishing is a protected class sport by the state constitution and as such the pier closure is an illegal action. If anything is banned it should be swimming. as the ocean is technically a wilderness full of dangerous predators if you choose to swim in it expect that you will be on a sharks dinner menue.
Scott Hanley July 10, 2014 at 08:25 am
Fishing for sharks from the pier IS illegal. The "we were fishing for batrays" excuse isRead More bullshit. Batray specific fishermen fish at night.

I feel terrible for the victim of the shark bite. I think some one should have notified theRead More lifeguards so they could have warned swimmers away from the area. The shark was supposedly on the line for up to 45 minutes so there was certainly time to clear the water and prevent this tragic attack. But, no medical insurance? Really? Previous articles say the victim is a 40 yr old realtor. Why would he not have insurance? Especially now with Obamacare and Covered California! Isn't he now required by law to have insurance?
Richard July 9, 2014 at 05:30 am
Thank you Obama!
Richard Clifford July 10, 2014 at 07:40 am
The reports are that last year this same swimmer did a 13 hour swim from Catalina to Trump NationalRead More Golf Course. He said later that it was a swim from Hell. The important point, however, is that as a consequence of the swim he suffered hypothermia and possibly a mild heart attack for which he was hospitalized. Did he have insurance then? He is wearing a wedding ring in some photos. So, can we guess that his spouse also lacks insurance? And,, many reports identify him as a 50 yo, not a 40 yo. There is a lack of information but one would think that this person is avoiding getting insurance. From my POV that is a very foolish base for a person who is an active OW swimmer.

Ken Lewis July 9, 2014 at 09:50 pm
The thing I find interesting is women are dead set against people that smoke but the major majorityRead More of them drink regularly. I suppose they justify it because booze won't give them lung cancer. So who cares about liver cancer, hardening of the arteries, heart disease, kidney failure, abdominal and bowel cancer and a permanent lose of thousands of brain cells with each drink. I have yet to see one report of a driver under the influence of nicotine killing anyone while driving. So heres lookin at ya drink up and put that cigarette out before ya kill somebody with second hand smoke and just use a car.
