Take a peek into the Huntington Library’s expanded Chinese Garden

Jagged rock formations and miniature potted trees accent the newly expanded Chinese Garden at the Huntington Library, Art Museum, and Botanical Gardens. The garden occupies 15 acres on the 207-acre grounds of the Huntington, a research institution in an upscale residential neighborhood of San Marino. The Huntington opened 11.5 of those acres to the public for the first time this month after declaring its third and final phase of construction complete. Susan Holman of Pasadena called the expansio...

Forget the ‘Trump’ or ‘Biden’ t-shirt, voters are told on opening day – that’s called electioneering

Leo Serna, donning a “Trump 2020” facemask and Trump t-shirt, was briefly turned away from the vote center at the Norwalk government complex as in-person began in Los Angeles County on Saturday, Oct. 24. Q&A: Here’s what you need to know about in-person voting in California Whether he knew it or not, election officials consider that electioneering.

Recipe: These stuffed bell peppers blend sweet and tart flavors

There is something very alluring about edible containers, especially if they are bright red, green or yellow skinned bell peppers. This delectable vegetarian version of stuffed bell peppers offers a hearty blend of sweet and tart flavors, supplementing the rice filling with ingredients such as raisins, lemon zest and pine nuts. Green bells have the strongest flavor profile, a grassy herbal quality that teams with a gentle spicy finish. Red bells are sweeter than green, with only a smidgen of her...

The LA Zoo has distinctive native plant types you might want to try in your own garden

At the entrance to the Los Angeles Zoo, I recently encountered three distinctive California native plants you might want to consider for your own garden. Along a ramp leading up to the entrance is a large planting of California wild roses (Rosa californica) that are currently showing off clusters of stunning red-orange hips. At this time of year when most flowering plants have shut down after a scorching summer, the brilliant hips grab your attention all the more. This is the classic color of ro...

Senior Moments: What’s that hanging around outside my bedroom window at 3 a.m.?

I heard the noise just as Lark finished her Downward Dog stretch. This is strange enough for a cat, but she ends it with a perfect arched-back yoga pose called the Cat. Since I never mastered either of these in yoga class, I am in awe, to say nothing of envious. I momentarily consider getting down on the floor and giving the dog cat poses another try. Then I hear the noise again. It was a scratchy rustling sound. I got out of bed and opened the window to peer out at the 3 a.m- ness of the night....

Vote for Prop. 25 to replace unjust money bail with a system based on safety

As a police officer patrolling the streets of Los Angeles, I made split-second decisions every day based on risk. Yet after we arrested someone, the decision to keep them in jail or send them home awaiting trial didn’t hinge on risk but rather on their wealth. Our cash bail system wastes critical resources by incarcerating people pretrial who aren’t likely to reoffend, while letting high-risk individuals pay for release. Thankfully, we have a chance to end money bail this November by voting Yes ...

Contaminated Exide plant turned over to state environmental trust

An environmental trust will take over the toxic Exide battery recycling plant in Vernon to prevent its bankrupt owners from abandoning the heavily contaminated facility, the Department of Toxic Substances Control announced Friday. Despite its earlier objections, California agreed to creation of the trust after a federal judge on Thursday rejected an emergency request to prevent Exide from dumping the site Oct. 30. The trust “avoids the many legal challenges posed by abandonment and ensures an or...

Successful Aging: 4 ways to thrive and be healthy during the pandemic

Dear readers, This past week I had the opportunity to speak at the Healthy Living Virtual Expo sponsored by the Southern California News Group. When I was asked for the title of my talk, I said, “Aging and Thriving during the Pandemic: Are You Kidding?” As I was sitting in front of my computer, faced with a blank screen, I said to myself, “What in the world was I thinking?” We are in the middle of a pandemic, high unemployment, economic disaster for so many businesses and individuals, mental hea...

Homebuying’s toasty summer: 10 things you should know

I did not see this coming: Southern California homebuying went from its slowest-selling spring in the record books to the fastest summer sales pace in 14 years. Few slices of the economy show how coronavirus whipsawed the economy better than the remarkable comeback for the homebuying business. The market’s fuel is a complex combination of historically low mortgage rates, generous loan forbearance programs, a short supply of homes to buy, and the need for larger living spaces in the pandemic era....

It’s pumpkin harvesting time, and here’s what else you can do in the garden

1. Harvest pumpkins and winter squashes. They are ripe when the shell hardens enough so you cannot easily puncture it with your fingernail. Leave a couple of inches of stem for best effect and longest keeping quality. Store in a cool, dry place with good air circulation. Be sure to laugh a lot as you and your kids make jack-o-lanterns with the pumpkins. 2. Take time now to clean up your garden by removing any fallen fruit, old vegetables, plant debris, and weeds. Many weeds are releasing seeds n...

5 ways your offer can stand out in a hot industrial market

Industrial real estate — those buildings geared for manufacturing and logistics warehouse providers — is on fire in Orange County! These are typically constructed out of concrete, located on little known city streets such as Blue Gum, Coronado, Carnegie, and Capricorn, and house companies that make and ship things. But, as the term “on fire” means different things to different folks not related to our industry, I believe it’s important to offer some context. 2020 – the year of the pandemic is no...
