Nearly two dozen children at a Grand Terrace elementary school were sent to hospitals complaining of nausea and stomachaches Wednesday after inhaling fumes from a broken pesticide container, officials said. A 12-ounce bottle of Malathion was found in a vacant lot west of Terrace View Elementary School and the strong fumes made their way to the school, said San Bernardino County Fire Department spokeswoman Tracey Martinez.

Blake Baggett of Grand Terrace is trying to make a charge for his second consecutive motocross championship in the 250-class division of the off-road motorcycle series. Baggett, 21, earned his first win of the season Saturday at the Budds Creek National in Mechanicsville, Md., the fifth race on the 12-race schedule of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship. "It's a step in the right direction," Baggett said. The victory lifted the Kawasaki rider to fourth place in the championship standings, but he still trails series leader Ken Roczen by 32 points.

Carol Ann Brusven was raised in the Ventura County community of Moorpark and fondly recalls her small-town childhood. Looking for a place to put down roots as an adult, Brusven sought what can be elusive these days--"a place that had small-town atmosphere," she said. But she found it in the San Bernardino County town of Grand Terrace, population 12,600. Brusven, 38, moved to Grand Terrace nine years ago from nearby Loma Linda.

I opened up the Commentary page on Dec. 14, saw the headline "Clinton Has Little to Be Proud of" and without reading any farther knew exactly who the author of the column was--Arianna Huffington. I don't believe I'm the only person who is tired of this woman, in the name of journalism, using the same theme in everything she writes, over and over again. It seems that all she ever does is complain about the president and/or the Democrats. It's time for someone else who has an original thought and wants to provoke some intelligent discussion.

A city councilman in San Bernardino County was arrested Wednesday for allegedly using his position and influence to benefit a business he operated with his wife, officials said. The arrest warrant for Grand Terrace Councilman Jim Miller was for "conflict of interest," and his bail was set at $25,000, according to a statement from the county district attorney's office. "The allegations are that, over the last two years, Councilman Miller repeatedly voted for city expenditures that benefited a newspaper and printing business operated by Miller and his wife," the statement read.

The baseball playoffs on TBS come with a price. Ron Darling and Tony Gwynn. The games on TBS without Tim McCarver and Joe Morgan. Priceless. Dave Snyder Grand Terrace Talk about Dodger blues: Steve Springer takes umbrage (and offense?) with FSN's Jim Watson's dressing down of the L.A. media for its ho-hum Dodgers coverage. I'm a former newspaper reporter, and I don't mind the FSN "homerism." I expect Steve Lyons to be as Vin Scully-like in his commentary as much as I expect T.J. Simers to write graciously about Frank McCourt.

Riverside County sheriff's officials are investigating the death of a Fresno man whose body was found Saturday morning near railroad tracks in Cabazon. The body of Gustavo Morin, 49, was spotted shortly before 2:30 a.m. by a Union Pacific railroad employee as it lay between tracks that run parallel to Railroad Avenue and east of Main Street in Cabazon, about 17 miles northwest of Palm Springs, authorities said. He "had trauma on his body . . . that could be caused by the impact of a moving train," sheriff's officials said in a statement.

Joriz de Guzman has sat behind the wheel of a car only a few times. He is, after all, 15 years old. He'll wait until November for a learner's permit and even longer for his driver's license. This Sunday, he'll reach a different milestone: a diploma from Cal State San Bernardino. Understandably, the Grand Terrace resident is psyched: "It's pretty big.... The last time I was in a graduation was in kindergarten."

I read "Firefighters Demand Safer Exits for Students" (May 17) with great interest. The article even prompted calls to the local fire department and the state fire marshal. Alas, the new law will do nothing to require correction of the unsafe situation my students and I face daily. I teach in a portable classroom with only one door and no windows. I think it's great that classroom windows will have to be equipped with "breakaway" grilles, but what about the countless students and teachers trapped in rooms with only one door and no windows?
