How to prevent weeds from taking over your lawn

Now that spring is here, everyone is paying attention to their lawns again. Unfortunately, fescue is not the only thing that is growing in many lawns.

(Yes, I do realize that Southern California is not an ideal climate for large, lush green lawns, but some of us East Coast natives still appreciate a bit of green. I just wanted to put that out there.) If you are plant...

Supreme Court to weigh whether 2nd Amendment gives citizens right to carry guns in public

The Supreme Court agreed to hear a major gun-rights claim on Monday.
