The 28-year-old Ventura County Jail inmate who collapsed and died while playing basketball at the jail's rooftop court Saturday suffered a massive heart attack, coroner's officials said. The inmate has been identified as former Camarillo resident Laquentine Holt. He had a history of high blood pressure that contributed to his heart problems, officials said following an autopsy Sunday. Holt had been serving time at the main Victoria Avenue jail since August on suspicion of violating his parole.

Not only did Capistrano Unified School District trustee Mildred Daley Pagelow survive a massive heart attack Oct. 12, she only missed one board meeting before returning to the dais Monday. Pagelow, 71, said she was feeling better and that friends drove her to the meeting because she is not supposed to drive yet. The former sociology professor said she hurried back because she didn't want to disappoint those who helped her get reelected last year.

I can't help but think that the lovely fun of Ernst Lubitsch's 1943 "Heaven Can Wait" was colored by the massive heart attack that nearly felled him when he was finishing the film. It was the director's first go at color, and he's careful with its use. Don Ameche is absolutely charming as the dapper, devious businessman who finds himself knocking on Hades door with Satan not at all convinced he should let him in.

Television icon Dick Clark died Wednesday at age 82 because of a heart attack, leaving a New Year's Eve void that may never be filled. There are probably a lot of people out there who don't realize the amazing longevity he had, so to put it in a little perspective, consider this: Dick Clark started hosting "American Bandstand," the show that put him on the map nationally, in 1956. How long ago is that? The following baseball players made their major league debut that same year: Luis Aparicio, Gino Cimoli, Moe Drabowsky, Don Drysdale, Curt Flood, Tito Francona (father of former Red Sox manager Terry Francona)
