I've been seeing a lot of news articles recently about parents being arrested and their children removed from their custody because they let them play unsupervised outdoors. The first thing I felt upon reading these stories was intense indignation.

Why is this happening? Why has there been this tremendous change from my own childhood, in which it was normal for us to wander far and wide, unsupervised, as young as 6 or 7? There are a few reasons. First, the decline of community. During my childhood, all the neighbors knew each other and would keep an eye on each other's kids. The boundary between home and not-home was more fluid, more gradual. The neighbor's yard or the cornfield at the end of the street was still home territory.

Two weeks after the Butte Fire in Amador and Calaveras counties was contained, fire managers are assessing the blaze and the effort to fight it.

The Butte Fire burned more than 70,000 acres in Amador and Calaveras counties last month. It killed three people and destroyed nearly 500 homes. "The main message that I'm hearing is that history didn't help them at all to fight this fire," says McClurg. "It acted erratically, violently, completely unpredictably. And they feel like the fires they're seeing today... the Valley Fire, the King Fire last year. They're fighting the fires behind instead of out front because they can't predict what they're going to do."

The U.S Forest Service is assessing the damage and considering next steps to restore the landscape in the Butte Fire area. Nearly 71,000 acres burned in Amador and Calaveras counties in September.

Much of the burn area is completely devoid of life. The trees are blackened sticks. Large areas suffered "high severity" burns, which means no vegetation survived the extremely hot flames. "We don't have any trees there anymore," says Barnie Gyant, a deputy regional forester for the U.S. Forest Service. "No seed source for natural generation so when we look at this drought and what this costs on these fires are in the region, it's a system gone bad."

The U.S. government secretly allowed radiation from a damaged reactor to be released into air over the San Fernando and Simi valleys in the wake of a major nuclear meltdown in Southern California.

More than 50 years ago - fallout that nearby residents contend continues to cause serious health consequences and, in some cases, death. Founded in 1947 to test experimental nuclear reactors and rocket systems, the research facility was built in the hills above the two valleys. In 1959, Area Four was the site of one of the worst nuclear accidents in U.S. history. But the federal government still hasn't told the public that radiation was released into the atmosphere as a result of the partial nuclear meltdown.

If life wasn't hard enough these days, beware the scam artist. Have you had the call yet?  The one where Microsoft is calling you, telling YOU that...

But really? Does PG&E call you at home, not unless they have scheduled and outage and even then, it's an automated recording, not a real person. They just don't call and ask for money. Period. We've had several clients and friends who have endured the humiliation, the financial lost and the frustration of being ripped of for hundreds, even thousands of dollars.

Legislation blocking states and municipalities from requiring genetically modified food be labeled as such is languishing in the U.S. Senate.The Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act, H.R. 1599, passed the House by a vote of 275-150 on July 23.

"We're going to have a biotech hearing right off the bat," Roberts said Thursday. "We don't call it GMO, we call it biotech for a purpose. We are trying to prove to the American people that their food is safe and we have everybody from the FDA to the USDA to EPA testifying." Opponents of genetically modified food, such as organic farmers, argue its health effects have not been properly studied and that most Americans are in favor of GMO labeling. They refer to Pompeo's bill as the Denying Americans the Right to Know Act, or DARK Act.

California is now a "right to dry" state after Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill Thursday restricting homeowners associations from banning clotheslines, which the groups deemed unsightly additions to neighborhoods.

Assemblywoman Patty López (D-San Fernando) announced Brown signed her bill, AB 1448, which will allow line drying for people once restricted by their property management organizations. "Growing up, my family and many of my neighbors used clotheslines as the way to dry their clothes and other laundry," López said in a statement. "Californians can now do their part for the environment while saving money on their electric bill by using the sunlight to dry their laundry."

Thanks to a little-known congressional bill, it may soon be impossible to tell whether your Fourth of July burger is all-American Angus or beef imported from the Amazon, according to a Facebook meme.

Under the country-of-origin labeling law, or COOL, supermarkets have to tell consumers where their meat, fish, and nuts are produced with varying degrees of specificity (i.e. "Born in Canada, Slaughtered in the U.S.", "Farm-Raised in Vietnam", or simply a laundry list of all the countries the product has passed through). COOL passed in 2002 but wasn't fully implemented until March 2009.

A group of Cincinnati hospitals has mandated drug testing of new mothers and infants amid an 841 percent increase in the number of expectant Ohio mothers found to have an opioid addiction in the last decade, according to state health officials.

Seven hospitals in the Cincinnati area have universally tested for drugs since late 2013. The number of newborns in the area that were exposed in the womb to Percocet, methadone, heroin and other opiates quadrupled from 10.8 infants per 1,000 births in 2009 to 46 per 1,000 births in the first three months of 2013, according to Cincinnati Children's.
