Most everyone knows how important it is to properly place small children in a car seat when the child will be riding in a motor vehicle. But, evidently, not everyone knows about another seemingly small detail that also could be vital in safeguarding a small child. The excitement of a traumatic automobile accident or other incident that sends a young child to the hospital can be much more difficult for family members — and possibly even defer necessary treatment for the child — if emergency room personnel are unable to quickly determine who the child and their parent or guardian is, as well as any pertinent medical information.

Crescenta Valley Sheriff’s Station patrol officers, along with their counterparts from other law enforcement agencies, are on the lookout for unbelted drivers and passengers around the clock in a campaign that started Monday and runs through June 5. Although officers ticket seat-belt violators year-round, law enforcement groups specially enforce the state’s mandatory seat belt law in late May because it is generally a peak time for road travel,...

Q. My mom, who has Alzheimer's, has begun to wander around the house. I am worried that she will go outside when I am not looking and get lost. Wandering around the house may be irritating to the caregiver, but not necessarily unsafe for the patient. In this case, you may need to adjust your anxiety level about wandering. On the other hand, some wandering can be dangerous and must be prevented: going into areas of the house that are off-limits, especially stairwells, decks, hot tubs, and swimming pools; leaving the house alone via a window or door to go outside; or leaving your yard or property.

While no one can predict the future, I can't help but wonder if our country could have prevented the "deadliest massacre in U.S history." Cho Seung-Hui, a resident alien from South Korea, easily obtained Glock 19 and 22 caliber pistols from a pawn shop and a gun store near Virginia Tech, where 32 people were shot to death on April 16. In Virginia, all that one needs to purchase firearms is proof of residency. The White House issued a statement following the shootings: "The president believes that there is a right for people to bear arms, but that all laws must be followed."

In the past few decades, there have been a staggering number of changes in car design which have been reflected in our driving culture. I recall the old touring bus commercial featuring a handsomely uniformed fellow who enjoined us to, "Go Greyhound — and leave the driving to us!" Greyhound's glory days may be past, but auto manufacturers are scrambling to pick up the slack, exploiting the gist of that slogan with increasingly robotoid vehicles. Cars do a lot of things they didn't used to, theoretically offering luxury services but really … I think it's because manufacturers figure we're too dumb or lazy to do much for ourselves.

Letters to the Editor Window Posters Thank you to you and Elaine La Marr for the "Merchants Under Fire" column [May 25]. The day the city's enforcement officer came in to La Cañada Books & Toys to do her job was the last day I could effectively do mine. Down came the color photos of our local authors, down came the 'IMAGINATION' sign above the door, encouraging children (and the child in every adult) to embrace the magical world within. And gone was our ability to provide a public service by displaying community event flyers that connected our customers with the activities that benefited their organizations and families.

The battle of the studio-made movie versus the independent auteur rages on in Hollywood but a Spanish revolution of new voices has changed the scene dramatically. No longer are Latino directors part of a fringe network making foreign language films seen only in art houses. Suddenly in crossover English new Latino directors from Mexico have found an international audience and entered the mainstream of movie magic. Born within four years of each other and all self-taught, three filmmakers in particular, Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, Guillermo del Toro and Alfonso Cuaron, have broken the foreign language film barrier by moving seamlessly back and forth between Spanish and English-language films, bringing to their more commercial productions the rhythms and perceptions of their Mexican heritage.
