Beware Of Some Baby Food Samples

Observer Columnist


August 3, 2017

Has anyone told you about the Environmental Defense Fund and their analysis of eleven years of federal data found detectable levels of led in twenty percent of 2164 baby food samples? The toxic metal was most commonly found in fruit juices; such as grape and apple, root vegetables such as sweet potatoes and carrots, and cookies, such as teething biscuits. Doctor Ben Carson sold his West Palm Beach mini mansion recently for $920,000. It seems the cabinet member bought a larger home in Florida and another outside of Washington, D.C. When you are traveling between Savannah, Georgia and Jacksonville, Florida take a small detour and visit the Mildred Hule Plantation and Museum for an appointment and personal tour (912) 638-8425. You will be amazed with the art collection and St. Simon’s Island. I am activating a contest Theo and I had several years ago. Perhaps you remember our Where is Herman Cain These Days? The person to get to the newspaper office (4346 Sepulveda) with the correct answer could win a 2017 De Soto 4 door V8 with 50 gallons of Mohawk gasoline. Contest ends September 14, 2017. Why are we paying many people in the Culver City City Hall more (lots more) than our Congresswoman Karen Bass? Many of us just don’t know we have people earning wages and benefits of over $400,000 per year. The Culver City City Council is about to hire a company to get the very best possible Director of Parks and Recreation now that Daniel Hernandez is leaving. Note I didn’t say retiring, because after a short R and R, I feel Daniel will be back in the saddle probably in California. After all he isn’t sixty, so he can puff up his

CalPERS pension even further. If you don’t mind, may I please tell you the rumored secret floating about? No matter how much, probably between $50,000 and $100,000 it will cost to hire a head hunter to replace Hernandez conjecture has it Armando Abrego the current manager of our Senior Center is holding a royal flush. Now comes the interesting part who will be appointed manager of the Senior Center taking Abrego’s place? Because he reminds me of our California State Assemblymember Sebastian Ridley-Thomas – Darren Uhl is the odds-on choice – unless Scott Malsin wants the job; then all bets are off. Americans shrugged off rising mortgage rates and bought existing homes in January at the fastest pace since 2007. The National Association of Realtors says hone sales rose 3.3 percent in January 2017; to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.69 million. What cars would you say after three years of driving would have the fewest mechanical problems as reported by J.D. Power. Cars Number 1.Lexus 110 2.Porsche (TIE) 110 3.Toyota 123 4.Buick 126 5.Mercedes –Benz 131 6.Hyundai 133 7.BMW139 8.Chevrolet 142 9.Honda 143 10.Jaguar 144 Number of problems reported per 100 vehicles. From my perspective as a stockholder of the Boeing Company for over 30 years and as an employee of its predecessors starting in 1965 I firmly believe, but a guess never-the-less, within five or so years Boeing will own Air Bus. Furthermore, by December 31, 2018 Boeing’s stock will be around $250 per share. It’s only a guess so double check with your financial advisor before you purchase the stock. If it happens you can smile all the way to the bank – if it isn’t Wells Fargo.

For a million years or perhaps even longer we have been told, protect yourself from I.D. theft by shredding every financial document rather than just putting it in the trash. After I was appointed to Los Angeles County Consumer Affairs Commission I brought up a pet peeve – namely having one’s Social Security number on so many forms. They even changed my Army number to my Social Security number. Apparently, someone heard, because 2019 is the deadline to replacing Social Security numbers on Medicare cards. No news about the G.I.’s service numbers yet. Should I be a little bit nervous? Some weather forecasters are predicting a very busy hurricane season. They are calling for eleven to seventeen (11-17) named storms with five to nine being hurricanes that are expected to be major with sustained winds of at least 111 miles per hour. Does anyone remember watching on television the Gorgeous Ladies of Wresting or Glow for short? It was so screwy that I laughed myself silly. The big stars were Mount Fuji and Little Fuji as I recall. Glow was on Netflix on June 23. Keep your eyes peeled for the reruns of a female pro-wrestling league in the 1980s.Will they bring back the Gong Show?
