Back Pain and Spinal Stretch

portable back traction, Spinal Stretch, sciatica, sciatic pain, spinalstretch, dr. david starr, back pain, back pain reliefAre you looking for a easy and affordable way of relieving back pain?

Do you have sciatica or back spasms?  Low back pain an issue?

Spinal Stretch may be your perfect solution!  Using it is simple.  Just a few minutes a day.  Most people notice a difference within a week.  If your experience is anything like my brother and mine, within a couple of weeks of using Spinal Stretch, you will feel noticeably better.

What does noticeably better mean?  Your back no longer is telling you ‘No’ when you think about lifting even the lightest of objects.  Or that sciatic pain, that almost crippling pain that makes even the simple task of walking difficult is relieved.  The idea of playing 18 holes has become an enjoyable experience again.

So what is Spinal Stretch?  Spinal Stretch is an affordable, spinal traction or decompression system that is so easy to use, you can use it your own house by yourself.  If you can lie down, you can use Spinal Stretch.  If you talk to your doctor, he will call it a low back traction unit.

Shows the difference between a healthy disc and a degenerative (unhealthy) disc. Using Spinal Stretch allows the spine to open up to allow the flow of nutrients and water to replenish the nourishment necessary for healthy discs.

Spinal Stretch’s design is so effective that one of the world’s leading neurosurgeons and spine specialists, Dr. Charles Burton, started using it in his clinic.

Spinal Stretch was invented by Dr. David Starr.  Having practiced chiropractic in Redondo Beach, CA for decades, Dr. Starr has spent years researching for an affordable solution of not only overcoming low back pain but  something that would assist in hydrating the disks between the spine.  Hydration is one of the keys to healthy disks and a healthy back.

Zamperini memorial Thursday: Family members, former Incubus bassist among speakers for Zamperini memorial

By Donna Littlejohn
07/29/14
The Daily Breeze
Louis Zamperini, Torrance Track Star, Unbroken movie, Torrance Airport

Louis Zamperini

Louis Zamperini will be given a hometown farewell Thursday night when the city of Torrance sponsors a public celebration of life at the high school football stadium named in his honor.

“He was our hometown hero and I think it will give people some closure, if you will,” said Debbie Hays of the Torrance Historical Society. “It’s just a way to pay tribute to the person who put Torrance on the map.”

Zamperini died July 2 of pneumonia, less than six months before the long-anticipated release of the film based on his life. “Unbroken” — based on Laura Hillenbrand’s 2010 best-selling book “Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience and Redemption” — will debut Dec. 25.

Zamperini’s July 13 memorial service at Hollywood Presbyterian Church was by invitation only to the 97-year-old’s close friends and family.

This week’s public outdoor ceremony begins at 6 p.m. and will feature remarks by Zamperini’s family — daughter Cynthia Zamperini-Garris, son Luke and grandson Clay — as well as Matthew Baer, producer of “Unbroken.”

Hays, who was a personal friend of Zamperini’s, will read the eulogy written by Hillenbrand. Angelina Jolie, who is directing the film by the same name, read Hillenbrand’s tribute at Zamperini’s memorial service.

Zamperini’s epic story of perseverance and survival spanned a run in the 1936 Berlin Olympics, 47 days adrift in the Pacific where he encountered sharks, and two years in a Japanese POW camp.

But before all of that, he was a track star at Torrance High School — the family home still stands in the 2000 block of Gramercy Avenue — and USC. His late brother, Pete, was a coach at Banning High School in Wilmington for many years.

While Zamperini moved to the Hollywood Hills after World War II, he never forgot his hometown — and the love was mutual.

The original field where Zamperini ran, known as Wood Field, was on the high school campus, near where the parking lot now stands on Martina Avenue and 218th Street. The city opened the new Torrance Stadium in 1962 in his honor and renamed it Zamperini Stadium in 1987, a push begun by the students at Torrance High.

In September 2010, it was rededicated with Zamperini in attendance.

In 1944, when Zamperini was erroneously declared dead, the city named the Lomita Flight Strip Zamperini Memorial Field in his honor.

On Dec. 7, 1946, a ceremony was held to rename the field Zamperini Field (at what is now Torrance Municipal Airport), dropping the “Memorial.”

Aero Way, which leads to the airport, also was renamed Zamperini Way, thanks to the efforts of Zamperini’s longtime friend Jim Standifer, who will lead the flag salute at Thursday’s gathering.

When Zamperini returned from the war, he was plagued with bitterness and anger, drinking heavily and vowing to track down and kill his former POW camp captor, Mutsuhiro “The Bird” Watanabe.

At the insistence of his wife, Cynthia, Zamperini attended a 1949 Billy Graham tent revival meeting on the streets of Los Angeles, experiencing a rebirth and Christian conversion that was to guide the rest of his days.

Rounding out Thursday’s schedule of speakers are musician Alex Katunich, the former bassist for Incubus, whose life was changed when he read “Unbroken” in rehab; Kyle Gauthier, one of the last at the Victory Boys Camp ministry that Zamperini influenced; Gail Morgan, president of the Torrance High School Alumni Association; and former Mayor Ken Miller, Zamperini’s former neighbor and childhood friend.

Several flyovers, including a banner tow salute and a missing man formation by the Tiger Squadron, will be held from 6-6:30 p.m.

Singer Laura Savitz, a music teacher at Victor Elementary School in Torrance, will sing “Amazing Grace.”

Other participants include honor guards from the Torrance Police and Fire departments; the Torrance High School Track Team distance runners, who will run a symbolic lap around the field; chaplain Dan Hudson; and former Torrance Mayor Frank Scotto.

Hays said the gathering will be part of a long tradition of honoring Zamperini in Torrance.

“The city has always come together to recognize Louis,” she said. “Louie would love it.”

King Harbor Boat Fires Thanksgiving

By Aaron Castrejon
November 29, 2013

Fire fighters battled extensive boat fires in King Harbor Marina Thanksgiving evening, officials reported.

Fire fighters with the Redondo Beach and Hermosa Beach fire departments responded to the fires around 6:51 p.m. A Harbor Patrol boat and 18 fire personnel responded to the “I” Dock and found two vessels well involved with fire spreading to adjacent boats, said Robert Rappaport, fire chief with the Redondo Beach Fire Department.

The fire was brought under control within 10 minutes. No injures were reported, Rappaport said.

The two boats, a power boat and sail boat, suffered heavy damage, while two additional boats suffered fire exposure damage. Initial assessments estimate a loss of $80,000. The cause is under investigation, Rappaport said.

The (ex) spy among us: Christopher Boyce carves out new life in Oregon

Chris Boyce at the time of his arrest in 1977 on suspicion of espionage, Jim Caldwell Redondo BeachBy Sheila G. Miller
11/22/13
The (Bend) Bulletin

On crisp fall days so common in Central Oregon, Chris Boyce likes to take his falcon out to open lands and watch him soar.

After spending more than two decades surrounded by the concrete of prison walls, you would forgive the 60-year-old for wanting a little space around him.

“When I go out there on the grasslands and I put that falcon up into the air and watch it climb up into the clouds, I’m forever grateful,” Chris said. “I love it here. I love flying falcons here. I love our little house. I love working in the yard and our flower garden. … I’ve found a peace here in Central Oregon.”

It’s a life Chris only dreamed of during his days of solitary confinement in federal prison.

Once the most wanted fugitive in America, his life was chronicled in a best-selling book and a movie, both titled “The Falcon and The Snowman.”

Chris Boyce is the Falcon.

The basic story: Two young Californians, Christopher John Boyce and his friend Andrew Daulton Lee, worked together to sell secret information about U.S. satellites to the former Soviet Union. The pair, friends since childhood and former altar boys at St. John Fisher Church in Rancho Palos Verdes, were caught and sentenced to hard prison time. That’s where the book and the movie end.

But it’s not where Chris Boyce’s story ended.

In fact, he’s living the sequel in Central Oregon.

And now, Chris and his wife, Cait Boyce, along with freelance writer Vince Font, have broken their silence for the first time since 2003, with interviews on CNN and other media and in a book telling their side of the story. “The Falcon and The Snowman: American Sons” was just released in paperback on Amazon.com and is available in e-book format.

Sentenced in 1977 to 40 years in prison for selling secrets to the Russians, Chris was sent to Lompoc Federal Correctional Institution, where he broke out in 1980 by hiding in a hole, cutting through barbed wire and climbing over a wall with a homemade ladder. He remained a fugitive for 19 months, living in Idaho and Washington and robbing a series of banks to pay for his life on the lam.

Caught while eating a hamburger in his car in Port Angeles, Wash. (a deputy marshal famously told him to “Drop the hamburger!”), he was sent back to prison and sentenced to stay there until 2046, locked up among criminals like Timothy McVeigh and Ted Kaczynski.

And that’s where Cait comes in.

Cait Boyce, a longtime paralegal, first took an interest in Lee’s case. Lee, who served as the courier of the secret documents, was sentenced to life in prison, in part because of his criminal history as a drug dealer. Beginning in 1980, Cait visited Lee at the prison in Lompoc, and began crafting arguments for his parole. It took a couple decades, but in 1998, she was successful.

During that same period, Cait started corresponding with Chris in an effort to build Lee’s case.

“We corresponded a lot,” she said, laughing. “Like every day. And then he would call me, every day.”

Chris was released from prison in September 2002.

They married the following month, and shortly thereafter discovered Central Oregon on a fishing trip with the Boyce family to the Metolius River. His parents lived in the area for a decade. Chris’ father, an FBI agent before working as the security director for McDonnell Douglas, an aerospace manufacturer and defense contractor, dedicated much of his retirement to fly-fishing.

Cannonball Run: Coast to Coast in under 29 hours

By Joshua GardnerUKMail.com

Coast to Coast in under 29 hours: Mercedes CL driver sets new record by averaging 98mph in car he spent months fitting with gadgets to keep eye out for police

  • Atlanta Lamborghini dealer Ed Bolian used a souped up a 2004 Mercedes to speed into the record books October 20
  • Midtown Manhattan to Redondo Beach: Bolian and two friends took the classic route first taken in the Cannonball Baker Sea-To-Shining Sea Memorial Trophy Dash of the 1970s
  • Bolian’s time of 28 hours 50 minutes beats the previous record set by Alex Roy in 2006 when he made the trip in 31 hours 4 minutes by over two hours
  • With a distance of 2,813.7 miles, Bolian and his two-man team did the Cannonball Run at an average of 98 miles per hour

An Atlanta man shattered the record for fastest drive from New York City to Los Angeles last Saturday by making the transcontinental trip in 28 hours 50 minutes.

Ed Bolian spent years outfitting a 2004 Mercedes with expensive gadgetry, spare gas tanks, and, of course, bedpans and finally realized his dream October 20. That smashes the record set in 2006 by an unbelievable two hours.

But his attempt is sure to gather controversy as it involved traveling at an average of 98mph, well in excess of many speed limits. He also used a series of gadgets to avoid getting caught for speeding.

Bolian and company made their historic dash across the continent in this CL Class Mercedes and some help from a few extra gizmos and additions

The Lamborghini dealership sales director is hesitant to show off the proof, but according to Jalopnik, the 27-year-old has GPS data tracking every inch of the journey he took with a co-pilot and passenger starting October 19.

‘I’ve wanted to break the record since I was 18 years old,’ Bolian said, explaining away the trip’s huge costs and many risks.

He began putting all the pieces together years ago, first by buying a used CL-Class blue Mercedes from a man in Palm Beach, Florida.

‘I thought about a Ferrari 612,’ said Ed. ‘But gas mileage would’ve been bad. A Bentley would’ve been perfect, but you’d want the V8 for gas mileage, and those are still way too expensive.’

Bolian planned the trip for years and pumped untold sums into the car for GPS, laser jammers, CB radio, and other gizmos that helped ferry him safely and very quickly through a dozen states

He chose the Mercedes for its fuel economizing V8 engine and active suspension he needed in order to pack in as much fuel as possible.

Bolian’s whip boasts two additional 22-gallon gas tanks, which add hundreds of pounds of fuel but allow the car to travel 800 miles between stops.

But breaking the record was going to take more than just a souped up Mercedes. To ensure a clear run, free from traffic jams and, perhaps more importantly, traffic cops Bolian, also invested in a police scanner, two GPS units that relay traffic information and iPhone apps such as Trapster.

1,000 Surfers Take To the Water To Honor Surf Legend Bob Meistrell

Paddle Out Memorial for Bob Meistrell

Over 1,000 surfers and and paddlers took to the water in Redondo Beach on Sunday morning to give a send-off worthy of legendary surfer, diver and Body Glove co-founder Bob Meistrell, who died in June at age 84.

Meistrell co-founded Body Glove International and co-owned Redondo Beach dive shop Dive N Surf with his twin brother, Bill. He passed away after suffering a heart attack on his boat.

“King Harbor’s main channel looked as if a tsunami warning had been issued Sunday morning. Slips emptied and power boats, sailboats and skiffs crowded the main channel on their way out to sea,” Easy Reader News reported.

They gathered around Meistrell’s boat, the 72-foot Disappearance, which was anchored a few hundred yards off shore, according to Easy Reader News. They were soon joined by a dozen boats.

As Meistrel’s ashes were poured into the sea, the paddlers and surfers splashed water into the air, Easy Reader News reported. Doves were released and the Redondo Harbor Patrol and Los Angeles County Lifeguard boats fired their water canyons.

After the memorial paddle-out, people gathered at Seaside Lagoon to share memories and eat meals from Bob Meistrell’s favorite restaurant, Carls Jr, Redondo Beach Patch reports.

“[Bob Meistrell] was probably not the best surfer that I’ve ever known; nor was he the best diver that I’ve ever known,” said Walt Puffer, a longtime friend who played water polo with Meistrell at El Segundo High in 1947 and served as a lifeguard with him after high school. “But he was a great waterman, and he was the best friend that anybody could ever ask for.”

A reputed gang member and his accomplice were arrested and a second man was being sought in connection with the fatal shooting of a Gardena father in Redondo Beach, police said.

Eduardo Antonio Losa, 42, of Lomita, was arrested on a murder charge. Police said he was a member of a South Bay gang.

Shelby Ann Johnston, 29, was booked into jail on suspicion of being an accessory to the murder in the shooting death of Bobby Darrin Reynolds.

Reynolds, a 38-year-old father from Gardena, was fatally shot on Friday at close range, police said.

Shortly after the slaying, police recovered near the crime scene a Chrysler 300 vehicle that was believed to be used by the suspects.

The registered owner of the Chrysler 300 is Erick Julian Ortega, 27, police said.

He was named as a person of interest in the case.

Ortega has prior arrests for robbery and narcotics offenses, police said.

Ortega communicates with other gang members who are in custody in state prison and is involved with narcotics trafficking, said Capt. Jeff Hink, of the Redondo Beach Police Department, at an afternoon press conference.

He also distributes the proceeds of narcotics to state prison inmates, Hink said.

Police released this image of Erick Julian Ortega, 27, of the South Bay, on June 22, 2013. Ortega was named as a person of interest in the June 21, 2013, slaying of a man in Redondo Beach.

REDONDO BEACH, Calif. (KTLA) — Investigators were looking for a person of interest on Saturday in the fatal shooting of a man at the intersection of Lilienthal and Ralston lanes.

Erick Ortega, 27, was wanted for questioning in the shooting death of Bobby Reynolds at about 8 p.m on Friday night.

Officers were called to the intersection after receiving a report of shots fired in the area.

The officers discovered Reynolds lying in front of 2423 Ralston Lane with multiple gunshot wounds.

He was taken to Harbor General Hospital, where he later died from his injuries.

“It appears as though Reynolds was specifically targeted.  This was not a random act,” Capt. Jeff Hink of the Redondo Beach Police Department said.

Investigators had taken custody of Ortega’s car on Saturday.

He has prior arrests for robbery and possession of narcotics.

Ortega has several distinctive tattoos, including one that covers most of his head.

Anyone with information was asked to contact the Redondo Beach police at (310) 379-2477 or the tipline (310) 937-6685.

Tipsters can also text their information to police at (310) 339-2362 or send it by email at crimetips@redondo.org.
