Master Gardener: Tips for how to plant an avocado tree

Q: Do you have any tips on how and when to plant an avocado tree?  Each year I get a free one from the city and every year it dies. A: When you bring your tree home, make sure you don’t let it dry out. Select a site that has good drainage, not windy, and is not prone to frost in the winter. Do not lift or carry the tree by its trunk because the root ball can be easily broken or damaged. Dig a hole about twice as wide and the same depth as the container. The top of the tree’s root ball should be ...

Stinky ‘corpse flower’ is ready to bloom at Cal State Long Beach

LONG BEACH — It blooms every seven to 15 years, lasts for about 24 hours and has an overwhelmingly awful stench. And now, the giant corpse lily is ready for its close up at Cal State Long Beach. The 4-foot cluster of flowers is expected to unfurl Wednesday or Thursday, with the bloom possibly continuing until Friday, revealing not only its colorful maroon interior but its even more notorious smell, similar to that of decomposing animals and vegetables. The species, native to the rain forests of ...

Gardening: There so much to see at Corona del Mar’s Sherman Gardens

Visiting Sherman Gardens in Corona del Mar is like spending time in a great museum. After an hour or so, you reach a saturation point and sigh, “There are just too many treasures to absorb in a single visit. I’ll just have to come back again to fully appreciate everything that’s here.” Nestled at the end of a row of shops, you could spend a significant portion of time examining planters in the surrounding streets and in the parking lot, replete with exotic botanical fare, before you enter the ga...

Despite trauma and turbulence, Southern California Muslims move into the month of Ramadan with prayer and positivity

Sheik Atef Mahgoub is a proud Steelers and Penguins fan. As someone who considers Pittsburgh his home, and as an imam who has worked closely with the Jewish community in that city, Mahgoub, who is now religious director of the Islamic Center of Irvine, was devastated on Oct. 27 when a self-proclaimed white supremacist fatally shot 11 people at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Squirrel Hill, a beloved Jewish enclave, on Shabbat morning. The carnage didn’t end with Pittsburgh. On March 15, a white su...

Morales: Canelo, Daniel Jacobs set for 50-50 title fight

Fifty-fifty fights are the best to anticipate, especially when the names are big. That’s the case for Saturday’s middleweight title-unification between Canelo Alvarez of Mexico and Daniel Jacobs of Brooklyn. They will tangle at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas (on DAZN). When the fight is over, unless there is a draw, one of the fighters will hold three of the four major belts as Alvarez holds two, Jacobs one. Often times, we have a strong opinion as to which fighter will emerge victorious. Not this ...

Cinco de Mayo celebrations Mexico

For better or worse (usually worse), Americans are known for celebrating holidays of every kind with themed drinking. Oftentimes, the true purpose of the celebration, or an understanding of why it’s a holiday in the first place, is neglected. One of those holidays is Cinco de Mayo, also insensitively referred to as Cinco de Drinko. For the unaware, Cinco de Mayo commemorates the Mexican army’s astonishing triumph over the better-equipped invading French army in the small village of Puebla on...

NBA playoffs ratings slide as LeBron sits out the postseason

LeBron James’ tumultuous first tour of duty with the Los Angeles Lakers cast a long shadow over the NBA’s regular-season ratings results, and the absence of the league’s most singular talent appears to be having an impact on the playoff deliveries as well. Through the first 48 games of the NBA postseason, playoff telecasts are averaging 2.92 million viewers and a 1.9 household rating, which marks a 14 percent decline compared to the year-ago draw of 3.4 million viewers and a 2.2 rating.

Homeless in California will have to wait another year for possible hate crime protections

A bill that would make it a hate crime to attack a homeless person in California has been shelved for this legislative session, but the South Bay lawmaker who authored the measure vows not to let it die. Assembly Bill 1422, by Carson-area Assemblyman Mike Gipson, stalled in the lower house’s Public Safety Committee last week, but Gipson said he would reintroduce it next year because those experiencing homelessness are vulnerable and “deserve protection.” Assemblyman Mike Gipson “We’re going ...

Youths needed to fill construction jobs as openings rise

Mark Long came from a family of high-school dropouts. And for a while, his siblings expected him to follow in their footsteps. Math and science weren’t his thing. “I just wanted to mess around,” the Orange County native said. Then, Long discovered a new class at his high school. Called BITA, or the Building Industry Technology Academy, the Katella High School course taught students how to hammer, saw, build walls and install wiring and plumbing. Students used their brains as well as their hands,...

Joe Lamp’l Launches Beginning Gardening Course Online

As a proselytizer for gardening, I’m always on the look-out for people who teach it well, and new ways they’re reaching potential students – especially ways that help pay their mortgage. (Because as we all know, paying gigs for garden communicators are drying up, as newspapers close, etc.) So when I noticed that Joe Lamp’l was adding paid online courses to his many educational offerings, I decided to check into it. After all, he’s been teaching millions of people for over 15 years through televi...

CHP Sgt. Steve Licon’s commitment to fix problems put him in danger the day he died

California Highway Patrol Sgt. Steve Licon was known as a hard-working officer who got results. He deftly coordinated the air show at March Air Reserve Base, parades and other events. “If you wanted something done right, you’d give it to Steve,” CHP Inland Division Chief Bill Dance said. It was that diligence that placed Licon in harm’s way the afternoon of Saturday, April 6, when he was struck and killed by a motorist while writing a ticket on the shoulder of the 15 Freeway in Lake Elsinore.

Brooks Koepka, Bryson DeChambeau make late runs at the Masters

AUGUSTA, Ga. — Rory McIlroy finished up with a 73 Thursday and wondered why the first-round scores weren’t lower. The explanation came a couple of hours later. Brooks Koepka and Bryson DeChambeau hadn’t played yet. Koepka, the reigning U.S. Open and PGA champion had that familiar cold stare and that unerring ball flight at the Masters, stomping through the back nine with five birdies and finishing at 6-under-par 66. “It’s the best ball-striking round I’ve had at a major,” he said. “It’s not like...
