A Stanton bar had its liquor license revoked Thursday for allowing waitresses to solicit customers for beers at inflated prices and for permitting the sale of cocaine on the premises. "Our mission is to make communities stronger, and this obviously wasn't a business that was adding value to the community," Mark DeSio, a spokesman for the state Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control, said of the Extasis Caliente Nightclub in the 11000 block of Beach Boulevard.

A newborn boy found dead at a Stanton recycling center apparently was alive when he was dumped in the trash, a sheriff's spokesman said Wednesday. The baby, who died of asphyxiation and not strangulation as was widely reported, "was alive when it was dumped," said Jim Amormino, a spokesman for the Orange County Sheriff's Department. "It could have been a pile of debris on top of the baby that caused its death. Any number of things could have happened."
