Someone experienced, evenhanded, apolitical, fiscally conservative and good with the public. On Tuesday night, those were the qualities residents said they desire in Thousand Oaks' next city manager. "This is a helluva great city. It should be a plum of an assignment," said resident Raul Gutierrez, who said he wanted to see a city manager similar to Grant Brimhall, who retired from the post in February after serving for 20 years.

WASHINGTON -- Employees of a major coal industry donor to Republican causes have raised complaints about their participation in an event earlier this month organized for GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney in the crucial swing state of Ohio. Several miners at Murray Energy's Century coal mine in Beallsville, Ohio, contacted a nearby morning talk radio host, David Blomquist, over the last two weeks to say that they were forced to attend an Aug. 14 rally for Romney at the mine. Murray closed the mine the day of the rally, saying it was necessary for security and safety, then docked miners the day's pay. Asked by WWVA radio's Blomquist about the allegations on Monday's show, Murray chief operating officer Robert Moore said: “Attendance was mandatory but no one was forced to attend the event.” The Century mine is owned by Robert Murray, an enthusiastic Romney supporter and major contributor to the Republican Party on his own and through Murray Energy, one of the largest private coal companies in the U.S. Murray and his wife have given Republican candidates a total of $471,185 since the 2008 election, including the maximum of $5,000 each to Romney this year, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.

In recent decades, as consumption of the beverage has steadily displaced the consumption of others —particularly milk — studies have consistently linked soda consumption with weaker bones. Now scientists are trying to figure out how and why, precisely, drinking soda may affect skeletons. One theory is that a component in cola may cause bone to deteriorate; another is that people who drink soda simply drink (and eat)

According to a survey compiled by the National Center for Health Statistics: * Americans sniffled through nearly 61.5 million colds in 1990. * The average annual odds of catching a cold are about 1 in 4. * When it comes to colds, preschoolers are the biggest germ-mongers. For every 100 children under 5 surveyed, 65 had contracted a cold. Middle-agers (defined as ages 45-64) are the least likely, with only 14 of every 100.
