Galveston County Daily News, June 6, 2007 By Sally Robinson and Keith Bly GALVESTON - Is this year hotter than last year? We may never be able to agree on that, but it's hot enough to be dangerous. You don't have to be actively running around outside to be overcome by the heat, either. The elderly quietly succumb in apartments lacking air conditioning. Infants and children die locked in superheated cars, forgotten by neglectful parents. Whether you are active or shut in, heat can attack you. Parents can help kids avoid serious heat illness b practicing some commonsense rules.
