San Diego Girl Dies After Eating Burger: A 6-year-old San Diego girl, infected with the E. coli bacteria, died Dec. 28, within two weeks of eating a fast-food hamburger, a San Diego health official said. Two deaths and hundreds of illnesses in Washington, Nevada and Idaho have been linked to an outbreak of E. coli infections caused by undercooked tainted hamburgers served at Jack in the Box restaurants, a unit of Foodmaker Inc.

A 93-year-old Pearl Harbor survivor and suspected victim of elder abuse was found disoriented, dehydrated and living in filth at his home near El Cajon this week, clutching his prized possession: a picture of the ship that he was serving on the day of the Japanese attack. Arnold V. Bauer, suffering from dementia and prostate cancer, was taken to the Veterans Affairs hospital in San Diego, authorities said. Bauer's caretaker for the last three years, Milagros Angeles, 63, pleaded not guilty Thursday to four felony counts of elder abuse, theft, forgery and false imprisonment.

After the Border Patrol van departed carrying the boys who did not run fast enough, Carlitos whistled, the sound echoing in the park beneath sun-glazed downtown office towers. "They're gone!" he shouted in Spanish, inhaling a blast of Octane Booster--a gasoline additive and makeshift drug--from a Coke can. "I chased them off." A dozen youths emerged warily from the trees: homeless illegal immigrants who earn a living in a verdant corner of Balboa Park where the cars circle day and night.

To the things that set this region apart from most urban areas, add this: San Diego County has no official needle-exchange program for drug addicts. The American Medical Assn., the National Institutes of Health, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say such efforts can reduce the spread of disease without increasing drug usage, but San Diego's conservative political leadership has been steadfast in its opposition. A bill signed by Gov.

The number of passengers from an Aerolineas Argentinas flight showing symptoms of cholera grew to 25 on Thursday as health officials worked furiously to locate other passengers in order to limit repercussions of the disease. Nearly half of the 52 passengers contacted in Los Angeles County have shown symptoms of the disease in the outbreak, which is known to have killed one and infected five others, health officials said.

Acting to avert a prospective health "catastrophe," San Diego County lawmakers Wednesday called on state legislators to attempt to restore $10.5 million in local funding slashed from a program designed to provide care for poor adults. "We now know exactly how catastrophic these cuts will be to San Diego's working poor," said San Diego supervisor Leon Williams, who said the reductions would prevent many low-income people from receiving any kind of preventive care, creating a health "crisis."

After an eviction notice was posted last month, several hundred residents of the Los Diablos migrant camp east of Del Mar have been given unofficial permission to stay put by the new owner of the land beneath their makeshift homes. Meanwhile, a migrant-advocacy group this week obtained a $10,000 loan to design a prototype day-laborer camp for the land.

The San Diego City Council touched off an angry response by a throng of people opposed to the U.S. air bombardment of Iraq Tuesday, when it approved a resolution supporting the efforts of President Bush and American troops deployed in the Persian Gulf War. About 75 people, many of whom had testified against two proposed resolutions, milled around the council chamber and shouted "shame, shame" at council members after the 7-0 vote in favor of the milder of two statements of support.

As Los Angeles County officials struggle to rescue their bloated, bureaucratic and financially desperate public health system, they might want to look southward. For a generation, San Diego County has made the sorts of cost-conscious moves that Los Angeles County is only now reluctantly considering in response to a crisis brought on by deep cuts in public funding.

The number of family doctors in San Diego is far below the state standard, helping to make medical care too expensive for hundreds of thousands of people in the county, health experts said Friday. The city's lack of general practitioners trained in family medicine mirrors a problem nationwide, according to American Academy of Family Physicians members meeting this week in San Diego. Academy doctors said the lopsided ratio of specialists to generalists has driven up the cost of basic health care.

Still reeling from the measles epidemic that killed 51 children in California in 1990, county public health authorities here plan to unveil an aggressive new immunization program during President Bush's visit this week. San Diego is one of six U.S. cities, and the only one in California, chosen to launch a national pilot immunization program, aimed not only at measles but also at diseases such as polio, diphtheria, tetanus and whooping cough.
