It’s hard to forgive someone who hurts your child. Last Sunday’s article in the Los Angeles Times (“Criminal Past No Bar to Nursing”) brought back painful memories of our own experiences with a particular nurse and the California Board of Registered Nursing.

A potential traffic tragedy was averted on Monday when a woman whose car would not stop accelerating on Foothill Boulevard was able to stop the vehicle, thanks to the instructions of a Crescenta Valley Sheriff's Station dispatcher. The woman, a 40-year-old resident of Sunland, and her daughter, 5, were eastbound on Foothill Boulevard at 10:55 a.m., approaching Sport Chalet Drive, when their car's accelerator became stuck, forcing the vehicle to move at 20-25 miles per hour. The woman called 911 from her cell phone, and said, sobbing, “There are cars in front of me and I can't stop.” The 911 operator patched the woman through to the local Sheriff's day shift dispatcher, Richard Engersbach.
