-HEALTH DEPARTMENT CLOSES 7 YEAR OLD LEMONADE STAND-PORTLAND, Ore. — A county official in Oregon has apologized after health inspectors soured a 7-year-old's business venture by shutting down her lemonade stand.

-SECOND-CLASS AT THIRD BASE -The News In Major League Baseball, a racial disparity between the proportion of minority coaches at first base and those in the more prestigious third-base spot has been growing, according to an analysis by The New York Times. Behind the News The gap is meaningful because third-base coaches earn more and often use the job as a springboard to a managerial position. Despite baseball’s commitments to diversity, only 23 percent of third-base coaches are members of minorities, compared with 67 percent of first-base coaches. As a whole, 40percent of major-leaguers are black, Hispanic or Asian.
-$5.5M settlement reached in Redondo Beach cheerleader's injury-County officials are expected to finalize a $5.5 million settlement Tuesday in a medical malpractice case brought by the family of a Redondo Beach girl who suffered permanent brain damage after a cheerleading accident three years ago. The payment is one of the largest in county history for medical malpractice, due largely to the high cost of the girl's ongoing medical needs, county officials said. "This is obviously a very terrible situation," said Rich Mason, an attorney for the county. "We are pleased to have come to a mutual agreement and put this matter behind us." Elizabeth Nicks, now 15, was taken to County Harbor-UCLA Medical Center near Torrance after toppling to the ground during a pyramid-style cheerleading stunt at Aviation Park on Aug. 30, 2007.
She was diagnosed with a relatively small subdural hematoma, or bleeding of the brain, and was initially released after five days of observation, said William Karns, an attorney representing the family. "Over the course of her stay from Aug. 30to Sept. 4, she developed signs that indicated her subdural hematoma had increased in size throughout her hospitalization," Karns said. "Harbor-UCLA chose not to perform a CT scan upon discharge. If they had, they would have seen that the hematoma had grown in size and would have operated."
