California leads the nation in childhood deaths due to accidental poisoning from iron supplements, and most of those deaths have occurred in Southern California, state and UCI Medical Center officials said Thursday. In the past, poison deaths in children under age 6 were most often caused by over-the-counter pain relievers, said David Harden, an analyst at UC Irvine Medical Center's poison-control center.

The Food and Drug Administration Wednesday proposed stronger warnings, safer packaging and other measures to prevent accidental iron poisoning in children, the leading cause of poisoning deaths in children under the age of 6. Despite child-resistant caps, more than 110,000 cases of accidental ingestion of iron occurred between 1986 and 1992, leading to at least 33 deaths and numerous hospitalizations, the FDA said. The average age of the children who died was 16 months.

The biggest surprise was how neat and uncomplicated this ancient method of cooking is. No, come to think of it, that wasn't the biggest surprise. The biggest surprise was the upscale food that came from these old-fashioned cooking utensils. When was the last time you sampled a lemon meringue pie or a baked Alaska cooked in a cast-iron pot set on a layer of hot coals? It's likely that even the most ardent camper would not have been prepared for the downright elegant food that a group of Dutch oven experts produced from their heavy iron pots during the recent annual Great American Dutch Oven Cookoff in Logan, Utah.

SAN FRANCISCO - Luis Aroche learned about violence at Leonard R. Flynn Elementary School, across from the projects where his friend Carl lived. He remembers sitting down at his desk and seeing his teacher, Mrs. Foster, in tears. His class had just finished the Pledge of Allegiance. "Carl was playing on the swings and got shot," Aroche said. "And died. Kindergarten. He got found laying in a pool of blood in the park," Aroche paused. Swallowed. Started up again. "He was my desk buddy.
