LOS ANGELES (PRNewswire-USNewswire) -- Parents should take extra care in selecting toys for young children and supervising their play during the holidays, according to a leading eye surgeon.
According to Dr. Mark Borchert, director, The Vision Center at Children's Hospital Los Angeles, certain toys, such as BB guns, pose a particular danger for young children. "While a BB gun pellet may not break the skin of a young child, it can puncture his eye very easily. Unfortunately, every Christmas I see young children in our emergency room who have had an eye destroyed by a BB pellet."

With two weeks until the Nov. 3 election and the absentee ballots already out, the election is practically over at this point. That is the usual mantra from those who say their vote won't really make a difference. I don't believe that. With this advisory vote for the westside unincorporated communities, every vote matters.

What has become of the small town in which I grew up? Over the years I've watched folks move in and for some reason they want to elevate themselves to a status above all the rest. I often think I wish they would move back to wherever they came from.

When you think of California do words like innovative, leading-edge and trendy come to mind? A place where new ideas first take root before they become woven into the very fabric of the national culture and industrial base before becoming recognized around the world as being uniquely "American". If so, you may be surprised to learn that in one area, the critical business process of selecting and hiring new employees, California is lagging behind the rest of the country.
Energizer Bunnies keep going and going and going – and for a time, it looked like Buck McKeon would be equally perpetual in motion to those furry little drumbeaters. The man is after all, 75, and still beating war drums while running circles around most of us. Yet now it seems that both Buck the man, and his underlying message of perpetual militarism may be running down, with time well deserved for some R and R away from the military industrial complex.
