The father of two young girls who froze to death because of his heavy drinking was sentenced to three years in prison by a Canadian judge. Saskatchewan Provincial Court Judge Barry Morgan said he believed Christopher Pauchay was remorseful but he noted that Pauchay, 25, has a lengthy criminal record and had done little to control his drinking. Pauchay had been trying to walk to a neighbor's home in January 2008 with his daughters Santana and Kaydence, aged 1 and 3, on a night of almost blizzard-like conditions.

My grandson has bad diaper rash. It is hard for him to walk, and he cries when we bathe him or clean his bottom. Someone suggested making a paste with Maalox. The Pharmacist's Letter, a professional publication, classifies Maalox for diaper rash as a rumor. Nonetheless, many parents and some pharmacists are enthusiastic about this home remedy. The baby's skin is cleaned promptly and gently with water. Maalox liquid is applied with a cotton ball.

Only days after federal inspectors completed a review of troubled Martin Luther King Jr.-Harbor Hospital, Los Angeles County public health officials cited the facility for a slew of lapses in radiation safety rules in a report released this week.

Former astronaut Lisa Marie Nowak didn't wear diapers during her 950-mile road trip to confront a romantic rival, her lawyer said Friday, disputing one of the more bizarre details to emerge from the case. "The biggest lie in this preposterous tale that has been told is that my client drove from Houston, Texas, to Orlando, Fla., nonstop, wearing a diaper," Donald Lykkebak said after filing motions to suppress evidence in Nowak's criminal case.

AT an age when most children's parents have just started to consider toilet training, Samuel and Hannah had already completed the task. By 21 months of age, the Rothstein children no longer needed to be reminded to go to the bathroom, and they never had toileting accidents -- day or night. Their mother, Melinda, had taken a somewhat unconventional approach to toilet training. She started her son when he was only 8 months old and her daughter right from birth.

The Oscar doesn't come with an owner's guide, but Steve Meissner thinks a page of instructions might not be a bad idea. An administrator for the president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, Meissner was the main caretaker of the statuettes Sunday night, and as he dusted and polished an hour before show time, he offered some advice for the care and feeding of Oscar: No cleaning fluid or polish is required and will in fact damage the golden sheen.

BUCKCHERRY lead singer Josh Todd might be sad to see 2006 close out. The hard-rocking frontman has had a banner year -- with the birth of a daughter, and a hit song that recently earned the long-running L.A. band a Grammy nomination for best hard rock performance. The group will celebrate with a show at the Key Club on Dec. 29 and a New Year's Eve gig at OCNYE's 2007 "Orange Drop." But here's how the Valley resident spends time off.

Standing just outside Pierce County Juvenile Court the other day, Todd Rogers conceded that it was probably wrong of Tina Marie Carlsen to have taken the couple's 9-month-old son, Riley, two weeks ago from a Seattle hospital, as the child awaited what doctors said would be lifesaving kidney surgery. But maybe not, he said. "It was all so confusing, I was 50-50 on whether we should do the operation," explained Rogers, 38, a construction worker.
