California roadkill tracking: The New York Times reports on a researcher who tracks roadkill on California streets. It's focused mostly on Northern California, but citizens can submit their own sightings, including several in the L.A. area:

To Ron Ringen, a retired veterinarian, roadkill is a calling. Nearly every week for the last seven months, Mr. Ringen, 69, has driven the roads north of this college town near Sacramento, scanning the pavement for telltale bits of fur and feathers.

Horse reunion: The Orange County Register has a story about a woman reunited with one of her old horses through Facebook:

In 2001, Poupee suffered a stroke that paralyzed the left side of her face leaving her ear floppy and her left eye shut. She was taken to a horse rescue in Huntington Beach. … According to the Facebook message that rescue facility had relocated to Winchester near Temecula.

Molotov cocktail attack: The Long Beach Press-Telegram reports that two Molotov cocktails were thrown at a duplex Monday, damaging a car:

At 9:40 a.m., Long Beach Fire Department personnel were called to a duplex at 1822 East 56th St. by a resident reporting an incendiary device on the premises, said Capt. Jackawa Jackson of the Long Beach Fire Department.
