With more than 4 million people visiting Yosemite National Park last year ? and that number expected to increase this year ? it's no wonder lodging inside the park is snatched up quickly. "We typically sell out during the summer season," Delaware North Cos. spokeswoman Lisa Cesaro said of its Yosemite accommodations (Ahwahnee Hotel, Yosemite Lodge at the Falls, Curry Village and the housekeeping camp on the Merced River; the Wawona Hotel, and in the back country, Tuolumne Meadows Lodge, White Wolf Lodge and the High Sierra camps)

Karla Rendon stood in front of the vending machine at Maplewood Mall in St. Paul, Minn., staring at an assortment of items ? diapers, baby wipes, sippy cups, bottles, grape juice and diaper rash ointment. Just what a mother shopping with her 13-month-old baby needed. "I wish there had been one of these when I was at the Mall of America," said Rendon of Maplewood, Minn., recalling a recent excursion with daughters Makayla, 5, and Daisy, 13 months. On that day, Rendon had forgotten Daisy's bottle.

Americans are expected to spend more than $2.2 billion this year on Halloween candy. If we didn't know better, we'd wonder whether Halloween was a plot by the American Dental Assn. "Halloween is the largest candy-selling holiday of the year," Susan Smith, a senior vice president with the National Confectioners Assn., told The Times. The association estimates that candy sales this Halloween will hit $2.273 billion -- a record. Unfortunately, you can't mention "Halloween candy" without acknowledging the fears that some people have about Halloween sadism -- the possibility that razor blades might be hiding in apples or that candy might be poisoned.

Concerning the girl in Covina who was dismissed from the band: I think the real problem is in allowing schools to ask youngsters to sell candy in the first place. We should have a state law making it illegal to ask students to sell candy or cookies for a public school. I often see kids selling candy at market entrances. Sometimes I purchase, sometimes I don't. But, until now, I didn't realize that if I didn't purchase any candy, I might be causing a child to be banned from extracurricular activities.
