A 3-year-old Nebraska boy who disappeared from his apartment turned up at a bowling alley across the street happily playing with stuffed animals inside a claw machine.

"I really don't think he noticed any of us outside the machine because he was just picking up stuffed animals and putting them down where they come out of," Rachell Hildreth, a bartender at Madsen's Bowling Alley and Billiards in Lincoln, Neb., tells KLKN-TV.

The boy went missing on Monday night, apparently slipping out of an unlocked door while his mother was in the bathroom, according to police.

When officers got to the apartment they were told that a boy matching the child's description was spotted at the street in the bowling alley across Dudley Street.

A pair of fire trucks collided at a Monterey Park intersection today, sending one of the trucks careening into a restaurant, injuring several people.

A Monterey Park Fire Department truck wound up largely inside the Lu Dumpling House at the corner of Emerson and Garfield avenues. The truck had apparently collided with an Alhambra Fire Department ladder truck.

Monterey Park Fire Chief Jim Birrell said the crews in both trucks were heading to the scene of a house fire in southern Monterey Park when the crash occurred.

According to Birrell, nobody died in the crash, but 14 people were treated. One person was critically injured, three or four suffered minor to moderate injuries and there were nearly a dozen "walking wounded."

The NCAA on Tuesday proposed that athletes receive unlimited meals and snacks, the collegiate sports organization said in a news release.

Member Division I schools could provide their athletes food in addition to the meal plan covered by the student's scholarship if the plan is approved, the release said.

The announcement comes not long after a University of Connecticut star told reporters covering the NCAA tournament that he sometimes goes to bed "starving" because he can't afford food. Shabazz Napier's remarks sparked a new discussion on what benefits athletes should receive. Napier, a senior, is a top NBA prospect.

It was just like old times at the Los Angeles Unified school board meeting last week. The board voted to close two excellent charter schools for reasons that had nothing to do with the quality of education they are providing to students but rather over provincial concerns about turf.

This was the kind of board behavior — common a decade ago — that drove so many frustrated parents and policymakers into the arms of the school reform movement. We had hoped those days were over.

As an internist, Dr. Marcy Zwelling’s aim is to treat the sick and maintain the healthy.

That’s why she got rid of the pain of health insurance.

In 2004, Zwelling turned her practice into what’s called concierge medicine, sometimes known as direct care. For an annual $2,000 fee, a patient can call Zwelling on her cellphone, drop into her Los Alamitos office anytime, or, for an additional cost, request a house visit. There are no insurance cards. Patients don’t wait long to see her, and Zwelling’s staff avoids drowning in hours of paperwork hoping for government reimbursements.

“I had to do this to be able to do my job,” said Zwelling who has been an internist since 1987. “I get to practice the way I think I can practice best. It’s capitalism at its best.”

Eric Garcetti caught the attention of voters during last year’s mayoral race when he raised concerns about parking tickets, fines for street sweeping and loading zone violations that anger many residents.

“Tickets should be used to manage parking, not as a revenue source, and that is what I am going to look to do,” Garcetti wrote during a chat session on the website Reddit last year shortly after being elected.

Also during that web chat, he suggested a possible discount on ticket prices if fines were paid early.

When Mayor Eric Garcetti unveiled his first budget this week, he proudly announced that he was doubling funding to fix broken sidewalks from $10 million to $20 million.

There's just one problem: None of the money that was budgeted for this year has been spent so far.

And it remains unclear how much of it will be used before the budget year comes to an end June 30. Any unencumbered money will be swept back into Los Angeles' general fund.

City officials said they held off on sidewalk spending because of a lawsuit filed by disabled residents who assert that broken sidewalks infringe on their rights to public access. A plan to spend the $10 million on sidewalks next to libraries, parks and other city facilities is still awaiting approval from the City Council, which is on recess until next week.

The best Rahm Emanuel story is not the one about the decomposing two-and-a-half-foot fish he sent to a pollster who displeased him. It is not about the time - the many times - that he hung up on political contributors in a Chicago mayor's race, saying he was embarrassed to accept their $5,000 checks because they were $25,000 kind of guys. No, the definitive Rahm Emanuel story takes place in Little Rock, Ark., in the heady days after Bill Clinton was first elected President.

It was there that Emanuel, then Clinton's chief fund-raiser, repaired with George Stephanopoulos, Mandy Grunwald and other aides to Doe's, the campaign hangout. Revenge was heavy in the air as the group discussed the enemies - Democrats, Republicans, members of the press - who wronged them during the 1992 campaign. Clifford Jackson, the ex-friend of the President and peddler of the Clinton draft-dodging stories, was high on the list. So was William Donald Schaefer, then the Governor of Maryland and a Democrat who endorsed George Bush. Nathan Landow, the fund-raiser who backed the candidacy of Paul Tsongas, made it, too.

Suddenly Emanuel grabbed his steak knife and, as those who were there remember it, shouted out the name of another enemy, lifted the knife, then brought it down with full force into the table.

''Dead!'' he screamed.
