A 67-year-old man who was working outdoors on his property died Thursday after suffering numerous bee stings, the San Diego County Sheriff's Department said. When deputies, responding to an emergency call, arrived at the Valley Center property, the man was already unresponsive, officials said. The man may have disturbed a beehive while burning brush. The county medical examiner will determine the cause of death. The man's name was not released. About 55 people die in the U.S. each year from bee, wasp or hornet stings, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

 Freshman Hagen Danner of Huntington Beach has been used primarily as a relief pitcher this season, but on Monday, he got a chance to hit and came through with two singles to help the Oilers defeat Elsinore, 6-1. Ryan Abady threw five shutout innings, allowing three hits while striking out three and walking none. Huntington Beach, ranked No. 3 by The Times, is 12-2. It was high drama in a Mission League showdown at O'Malley Family Field, where Harvard-Westlake and Loyola finished in a 3-3 tie after the game was called in the 11th inning because of darkness.

MENLO PARK, Calif. -- Samsung disclosed more details Monday of the company's planned Silicon Valley innovation center, including plans for increased venture capital investment in the U.S. The South Korean tech giant is making a big push to expand its Silicon Valley footprint on several fronts. One effort previously announced was a Samsung Strategy and Innovation Center, or SSIC, located on the valley's famed Sand Hill Road, the epicenter of the region's venture capital industry. However, few details were previously available.  10 tech companies to watch in 2013 Young Sohn, Samsung's president and chief strategy officer, said the center has actually been open at least since August and would be a place where Samsung's nine product divisions can tap into Silicon Valley's innovation economy to help it continue to navigate the tremendous disruption occurring as the world moves into the post-PC era. "That's an opportunity for Samsung," Sohn said.

A few California farmers have long pushed the envelope by trying to grow crops like pineapples or lychees that are really a bit too tropical for local conditions but still tantalizing in their possibilities. A case in point is the mango, which just barely gets enough heat in the scorching Coachella desert to merit being grown commercially; all the more amazing that Markov Farms of Valley Center, located in a coastal climate zone even less well adapted to the fruit, is finally starting to market its crop at farmers markets, albeit with a catch.

The opening of a new health and science center at Los Angeles Valley College should have been cause for celebration. The complex included the first new classroom building on the campus in more than three decades. There were chemistry and biology labs, a greenhouse, an aviary, even mock hospital rooms for nurse training. But when students and professors poured through the doors, excitement quickly turned to dismay. Ceiling panels and floor tiles were askew. Crooked cabinet doors would not shut.
