-- Danette Goulet Another bomb threat has been found scrawled on a high school bathroom wall, this time at Newport Harbor High School. But police in Newport Beach said they are not taking the threat seriously. "Something was written in the bathroom regarding a bomb threat, but we took it as a suspicious circumstance incident and not a crime because we don't believe it is credible," said Newport Beach Police Sgt. Steve Shulman. Shulman said when investigators studied the writing on the bathroom wall Tuesday, they felt it was not a real threat.

The following is a guide of tips from my student to yours in choosing a bathroom at a high school or junior high school in this district: 1. Don't drink anything all day, so you won't have to use the bathroom at school. I know it is bad for your health, especially if you have a big workout in physical education, but better to be safe than sorry. 2. If you ignored Rule 1, don't wait until the last minute to try to find a bathroom. Many of the bathrooms are locked right after lunch, so forget about making that mad dash, as things get more desperate.

We’ve all watched “This Old House” or similar shows on television where they go in and redo a house. It looks so easy. So when the wife and I discussed remodeling one of our bathrooms several months ago, we decided to take on the project ourselves. How hard could it be? A little tiling, putting in a new bathtub, toilet and sink, and a little paint. I remember a friend of mine telling me at the time “that’s what professionals are for.” Well, here’s the good news: My wife and I are not divorced, yet. Actually, our attempt at what we thought was going to be a fun project we would do and enjoy together has become a comedy of errors.

Deciding on a paint color is stressful. Light, dark, bold, soothing: Sometimes it's hard to fit all of my moods into one can of color. I believe in tester quarts and foam brushes. There are times when rooms in my house have looked like patchwork quilts. It's important to see how the color adjusts to morning light, evening light and artificial light. After you have made the difficult color decision, you breathe a sigh of relief and head off to the paint store -- only to be hit with a new series of questions.

A Costa Mesa man who allegedly caused his elderly mother's death by leaving her lying on the bathroom floor pleaded not guilty last week to two felony charges. Robert Dickerman, 47, told an Orange County Superior Court judge Friday that he was innocent of involuntary manslaughter and inflicting injury on an elder adult, according to court records. The charges stem from the death of Dickerman's 80-year-old mother, Yoshiko Dickerman. Police said Dickerman left his mother in a puddle of urine on the bathroom floor for two days before calling paramedics at 2:20 a.m. July 3, 2012.

HUNTINGTON BEACH - A guided tour of Robert Rizzo's home Friday offered an unusual peek into the affluent lifestyle he built while running blue-collar Bell. When he lived in the house near Huntington Beach's City Hall, the former city manager - who now stands accused of public corruption - walked on travertine flooring, looked through etched glass windows, passed through leaded glass doors and ate in a formal dining room beneath a coffered ceiling. He could choose between a steam shower or bathing under a chandelier in a bathroom lined in travertine, granite and marble.
