Nearly 1,200 DUI arrests were made throughout Los Angeles County during 10 days of beefed-up law enforcement efforts designed to combat drunken driving in connection with the Fourth of July holiday period, authorities reported Monday.

I was thinking to myself a while ago that you don’t get in life what you deserve. You get what you negotiate. Have you have ever settled for less than what you deserved? Me too. I’ve found in my career, and in my personal life, that negotiation is truly an art form. I’ve learned from those experiences, and I’d like to share with you, in this limited space, a systematic approach that you can use to get what you want in most negotiations.
Police have arrested a man suspected of sexually assaulting a woman in an area of South Los Angeles where a possible serial rapist had already struck at least three times since Friday morning, authorities said.
An officer saw an injured, unconscious woman on a bus bench at Manchester and Normandie avenues just before 12:55 a.m. and her suspected assailant fleeing, said Officer Roger Aguirre of the Los Angeles Police Department’s 77th Street Station. A perimeter was quickly set up in the area and a police dog located the suspect about 2 a.m., he said.
The United States Supreme Court has refused to take up the appeal of a California attorney who has lost lower-court challenges to Barack Obama’s presidency based on a claim he wasn’t born in the United States.
The case originated with Rancho Santa Margarita-based attorney Orly Taitz and Ramona, Calif.-based lawyer Gary G. Kreep.
