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.
Penny Arévalo (Editor) April 13, 2014 at 08:52 am
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...............

Let us only hope that all religions die off but from one disease;That of being found out.
Penny Arévalo (Editor) April 5, 2014 at 09:13 am
Well, that was certainly a rude comment to make on an obituary. I'm sure there are other places onRead More Patch for that discussion, but this isn't one of them.

David, even though I do agree with Penny that this isn't the right place and time to post this, butRead More in general I so do agree with you.

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.
Irene DeBlasio March 14, 2014 at 04:47 pm
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.
Penny Arévalo (Editor) March 14, 2014 at 05:03 pm
What a wonderful tribute you wrote. Hugs to YOU.

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.

And yet, all I hear is "last word."

Paul, just because the one you worship isn't recovery, doesn't mean he doesn't have an activeRead More problem. Are you also getting the help you need?
George March 9, 2013 at 01:04 pm
TK, I'm sure you are use to being ignored.
Tyler January 7, 2013 at 05:23 pm
Horrible. I wish someone could have talked to him or maybe they did and didn't help or they didn'tRead More know there was a problem. Sometimes we find out later that the person was battling with internal issues we were unaware of. I hope his family will be okay.
Tracy Lynch January 17, 2013 at 01:17 am
The first way you can help the family is to not misquote the family... My paragraph announcing myRead More brother's death said 15 MONTH not 15 year battle with alcoholism and depression. Is it that hard to copy and paste a paragraph?????
Joe Taglieri January 17, 2013 at 01:26 am
Apologies for the factual error, Tracy, and condolences to you and your family. The Press-TelegramRead More blog misquoted you, which I've addressed in an editor's note.

He also owned Pandora's Box: "West Hollywood might best know him as the KRLA deejay who boughtRead More Pandora’s Box, then a little jazz club along the Sunset Strip, and turned it into a teen club in 1962. For a number of years, Pandora’s Box was at the center of the Strip youth scene." http://www.wehoville.com/2013/01/15/jimmy-oneill-dj-and-pandoras-box-owner-dies-at-73/

Got the pleasure of meeting Huell at a UC Davis fund raiser. He was very nice and so funny. We haveRead More a picture we took with him and also he signed a t-shirt we have framed. Almost all our trips are because of him. He helped us learn and love California. RIP Huell.
joebanana March 3, 2013 at 02:55 am
Wow, Huell is so cool. So sad to hear the tragic news, he'll be greatly missed. There will never beRead More anybody as cool as Huell. I hope KCET will keep playing reruns.

One of our family treasures. My daughter, Molly, was unimpressed, however, and did a greatRead More impersonation of his "Hah, Ahm Hoowell Howser, etc." which in turn became a special memory for me. We promise ourselves to visit at least one of his special places.
Anthea Raymond September 2, 2012 at 02:16 pm
Downtown's Grand Performances presented David "conversation" with Alan Warner at theRead More California Plaza a few summers ago. Glad I got a chance to see this and to hear David explain he had no reason to write a song about San Jose. He "just wanted to."

This man was always very friendly to us. Can I leave a comment without being branded as anRead More alcoholic? Google RADMO and learn what life is like in weho when a 25 yr long friend steals $800 from you after you supported this guy when he had a loss of a job and homeless. God bless America-huh.

He was always nice to me and my many dogs through the years. I must have seen him his last nightRead More there and I'm sad for his family and all the employees there as they are a pretty tight crew there.
