Our new friend Ron, from New York, gave me a cd of the NOTEBOOK, wow, I fell in love with JamesRead More Garner all over again. He was wonderful, on the screen and off. No scandals and married for so long. A truly wonderful man. Thank you God for sharing him with us for such a long time. He will be missed. Antoinette

Hehe! RIP wonderful loving man!!!!!!

Power to the People! @ Jim you should get a handle on your anger issues.

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 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.

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.
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.
Julie Brancato September 22, 2012 at 12:47 am
Dr.O was the best doctor our family could of asked for! He was kind, caring, and concerned about ourRead More family. My husband was very young when he started going to see him...way before his amazing practice he worked at Sears! I requested Dr.0 To my entire staff at Grand View Elementary!! We all respected him and speak fondly of him! You will be sorely missed by my family and many of my friends! Julie Brancato
Keith November 7, 2012 at 05:45 pm
Called to make an appointment today...didn't know, he was a great doctor, and seemed like a greatRead More person, full of humor, kindness, and a pride for his family. He will be greatly missed, my thoughts and prayers to all of his family and friends. He truly was not just a great doctor, but a great man.
Miguel November 9, 2012 at 03:25 am
It is very unexpected, wow. My thoughts go the family. I knew Dr. Orenic, as an enteringRead More optometry student shadowing him for a few hours before he started his own practice. He was very good with patients. Now as an optometrist myself, I think the community has lost a great doctor.
Deborah wilcox April 17, 2012 at 09:13 pm
You were a great man you will be missed by anyone and everyone who had the pleasure of knowing you

My husband was also a patient of Dr. Berenson and he passed away last year. I used to see MarkRead More there all the time and I prayed for him...he was a model father and it saddened both my husband and I to see him there. God will welcome him with open arms and he will be with the angels. My prayers go out to you and his beautiful daughters...be strong. You will always be in my thoughts and prayers..

In memory of Manhattan Beach Police Officer Mark Vasquez and Hawthorne Police Officer Andrew GartonRead More One manner of honoring those who have left us is to honor life. In that vein, please consider the following poem by e.e. cummings. I thank You God for most this amazing day;for the leaping greenly spirits of trees and a blue true dream of sky;and for everything which is natural which is infinite which is yes (I who have died am alive again today, and this is the sun’s birthday;this is the birth day of life and of love and wings; and of the gay great happening illimitably earth) how should tasting touching hearing seeing breathing any—lifted from the no of all nothing—human merely being doubt unimaginable You?
