Alexander: Late October baseball in SoCal again this year? Count on it

Yes, we overreached a year ago. You might not remember, and I might be crazy for issuing this reminder, but This Space went out on a limb a few days before the 2018 baseball season began … a thin, shaky, precarious limb: “It is the beauty of spring training. When it ends, everyone is still undefeated. “So, in that spirit of optimism, why not indulge that wild dream that Southern California baseball fans have harbored for the better part of six decades. “The Dodgers and Angels, playing in October...

Crowds descending on Lake Elsinore poppy fields again this weekend

Despite a foggy start and new traffic control rules, thousands of people from throughout Southern California are piling out of shuttlebuses and onto the Lake Elsinore trail to the poppy superbloom. So far, visitors and officials say, the road restrictions seem to be working – the crowds are under control. And after last Sunday’s problems, when 100,00 people overwhelmed Lake Elsinore and officials shut the viewing area down, people seem upbeat. “Everybody’s smiling,” said Roger Dannen of Vista, v...

LA Clippers team up with LA tech stars to promote science, engineering, math careers

It was a Friday of questions and answers at the L.A. Convention Center, as scores of students and parents descended downtown for the Clippers SciFest SoCal. That’s right. Instead of a basketball court at nearby Staples Center, where players school each other in the art of hoops, this was about getting schooled in the science of things.

Perris Auto Speedway is growing its legacy for short track racing

Short track racing has always been popular and well attended in Southern California. The center was the half-mile Ascot Speedway in Gardena, run by the late J.C. Agajanian. The track opened in 1957 and remained active until 1990. The sport suffered for six years until Perris Auto Speedway opened March 30, 1996, in Riverside County. Since its opening, PAS has operated under Oval Entertainment and the Kazarian family on the SoCal Fairgrounds, a stretch of 18 years. And, if Oval Entertainment has i...

Pearl District is a New American culinary gem in Sherman Oaks

At one time, the large space at 14015 Ventura Blvd. in Sherman Oaks was home to a casual eatery called Café Cordiale. Then, it was taken over by the folks from the nearby Boneyard Bistro, and turned into a more elegant spot called SOCA. Which after a year and a half was replaced by a Mexican concept called Boneyard Cantina. Which you may have missed if you blinked; it didn’t last very long at all. Now, the space is a branch of the very popular Westlake Village New American called Pearl District....

Photographer remembers Linkin Park’s Chester Bennington with a sold-out exhibition in Burbank

Just before Southern California rock band Linkin Park’s landmark debut album “Hybrid Theory” was released in 2000, musician and photographer Jim Louvau had met vocalist Chester Bennington when their bands played a gig together at The Mason Jar in Louvau’s and Bennington’s hometown of Phoenix, Arizona. The pair became fast friends and later, as Louvau balanced being in a band with his passion for photography, Bennington became one of his favorite subjects to capture. “It was always a joke between...

Gardening: Enjoying the flowering rebirth of perennials while they bloom

Daffodils, whose appearance is an undeniable harbinger of spring, bring smiles not only to gardeners but to poets, too. When William Wordsworth lay on his couch and thought of their unforgettable nodding golden trumpets, he wrote that then “my heart with pleasure fills and dances with the daffodils.” The word “daffodil” is derived from asphodel, a related flower of the lily family. Asphodel for the Greeks conjured up a meadow encountered in the afterlife. There is something about the rebirth of ...

Master Gardener: How to keep your houseplants from getting shriveled and brown

Q: I have several houseplants that are shriveled and/or brown at the leaf edges. I take care to water them regularly, and I even have them sitting in a pebble tray so they can get some extra humidity. What could be causing these symptoms? A: Although you are careful to ensure that your plants are properly hydrated, many indoor plants demand more moisture than a pebble tray can provide. Our climate in Southern California is extremely arid, which can be tough on tender tropical plants. Dry leaf ma...

How gardening may be helping people live longer

Gardening saved Mary Lou Heard’s life. In the 1970s, Heard, who would later become known as Orange County’s patron saint of cottage gardens, went through a divorce that was so devastating she was hospitalized. On the grounds of the hospital, there was a small neglected garden. Mary Lou got down on her hands and knees and, for the first time in a long time, she would later write, felt peace. Now more and more studies are supporting what Mary Lou and many others have known in their hearts all alon...
