You know we hear horrible stories every day and I guess I get numb to alot as a protetive device,Read More I'm sure. But this one really hit me. All those kids and the adults on a mission to improve their lives or the lives of others. Made me so sad. And this couple sounds so kind and lovely. Thank you for sharing it. Although it hurts.

My son went on a school trip to SF and is coming home today. I heard about the crash the first timeRead More it was broadcast and was worried sick. This tragedy is very heart wrenching for a parent like me and as a person. My prayers go out to those that lost their lives & their families as well as to those that were directly affected by the accident.

Tracy, I'm with you. Obviously, being a journalist, there are terrible stories everyday. But thisRead More one cuts through bone. It's just horrific in every way and has ties to people up and down the state, with LA County, Riverside County and Orange County hit hard.

Unfortunately, there's trouble brewing in his family, which is feuding over where to bury the bodyRead More http://studiocity.patch.com/groups/around-town/p/mikey-rooneys-family-feuding-where-to-bury-the-body

Wonderful. Most disgusting power play ever- squabbling over the issues of a deceased person. ThoughRead More Rooney should have had a will that specified that issue of burial. Still remembering Gregory Peck in that uniform right now...............

karma..goes around and comes around........maybe next will be Brian D"arcy~~!!
Lisa Ohlund March 29, 2014 at 01:11 am
Mr. or Ms. D. Jude - If by karma you mean that he will have a wonderful afterlife because of the wayRead More he lived this life,then I would agree with you; Col. Foley was the epitome of an officer and a gentleman and a heckuva water man. If you mean something derisive, then you never met him, and I will pray that one day you will rest in peace.
Dr. Richard Grossman, who founded his burn centers, starting in Sherman Oaks, died today. Patch file photo.

This is such tragic news for mankind. Dr. Grossman probably saved more lives than any world leaderRead More could ever hope to. He was a hero and should have been a Nobel Peace Prize recipient. When my family and I moved to Southern California in 1971 the only local hospital taking emergency patients was Sherman Oaks Hospital. He patched me up once for a minor burn. His incredible lifelong work ought to be recognized and celebrated by neighbors, by the state of California and by the federal government. He was an outstanding humanitarian and a wonderful man. Dear Dr. Grossman, rest in peace. My very deepest sympathy to Mrs. Elizabeth Grossman and son, Dr. Peter Grossman who will carry on in his name. Blessings and hugs to you both. It's a stunning loss.

I remember going to the funeral of a friend who was a police officer in New Hampshire. I have knownRead More his family for decades. The display of love and brotherhood was so big that it made the front page of the Boston Globe. I feel that same love in the photo above. Police really are brothers and sisters and the unity extends to all departments around the country. The respect is amazing. The bond is unshakable. My heart goes out to them all.
Penny Arévalo (Editor) March 13, 2014 at 02:49 pm
True, and you see and hear it from "brothers" who didn't know him personally, fromRead More departments from far-flung locales. An on-duty death impacts everyone "on the job."

Her life and story will be an inspiration for generations to come. We owe it to her and theRead More countless others who went through hell that there will never be another horrible time like that.

Have you seen the documentary? I really want to see it.
Sid Caesar has died. He was 91. Patch file photo.
GreenInOC February 12, 2014 at 07:07 pm
If you ever get a chance to watch "Hail Sid Caesar!", it's a fantastic documentary. I'veRead More always found it fascinating that modern day comics continue to speak of Sid in awe and admiration.
Dave February 13, 2014 at 07:27 am
No question Caesar was a genius but he also had a great eye for talent, hand picking his co-stars onRead More "Show" and writers, Mel Brooks, an 18 year old Woody Allen, Neil Simon, Larry Gelbart and Carl Reiner to name some of the most prominent. I had the great privilege and pleasure to see Mr Caesar give a two hour talk in the board room of the Screen Actor's Guild on Wilshire just east of the La Brea Tarpits about 8 years ago. Although the once tall and strapping Caesar had become shrunken and bent with age, once he was seated on the dais with moderator Joe Mantegna, you'd have thought you had been transported back to 1954 as Caesar came alive telling us of his memories working with all these great talents while tossing out some of his best bits- the foreign language imitations being as fresh and funny as they were on "Show of Shows". It was a night I won't soon forget and I am so glad I was able to see him in this small and intimate room. Rest in Peace, Sid. We won't be seeing your like again any time soon.
GreenInOC February 13, 2014 at 08:21 am
@Dave, what a treat - I wish I had been able to listen to him speak in person.

Nora Ephron understood that an infinite number of ideas are out there and she was as capable ofRead More finding them as anyone. Time wasn't a limit for her. The example I use in my class is when she created the story for the movie "Bewitched." She got a call from a friend at Paramount one afternoon who said that Nicole Kidman had been in the studio that day and had shown everyone how she could twitch her nose. Nicole would be coming back the next day and the friend wanted to know if Nora could write a story that they could pitch. Nora didn't hesitate, said yes, and wrote one that evening. The next day Nora's story was pitched to Nicole; Nicole said yes; and the movie got made.

Sympathy to Andrews family and friends, a God of love would never leave us without hope, JohnRead More 5:28,29 says that there will be a resurrection of the dead right here on earth and Revelation 21:3,4 says that God is going to do away with pain and death forever, this will be soon, so you will be able to see Andrew again.
