Hospitals cope with coronavirus-mandated visitor restrictions

At the time they most want their loved ones around them, many hospital patients now find themselves alone or with just one visitor. Visitation policies vary by hospital and have evolved as novel coronavirus has spread, but most in Southern California now allow visitors only after they’ve been screened for possible coronavirus exposure and many only allow visitors to certain areas. That’s the case at St. Jude in Fullerton, which doesn’t allow visitors to see most patients staying in the hospital....

Three big Democratic clashes in Southern California

The coronavirus pandemic obviously overshadows this year’s political contests, but we presumably will still have an election seven months hence, so we cannot completely ignore its potential outcomes. Will President Donald Trump’s re-election chances, which were iffy before the pandemic struck, be enhanced by his handling of the crisis — so far erratic, at best — or diminished? Will Democrats ratify former Vice President Joe Biden’s pre-crisis lock on their party’s presidential nomination, or wil...

How Southern California restaurants are giving back during the coronavirus crisis

Since the ban on dining in, Southern California restaurants have fallen on hard times. Sales dropped off the cliff. Chefs laid off staff. Managers deferred their salaries. Meanwhile, bills from landlords, vendors and utility companies were stacking up. But instead of asking for handouts, many restaurants began lending a helping hand. • James Beard award-winning chef Nancy Silverton turned Chi Spacca in Los Angeles into a relief center, dishing up free meals and giving away diapers, toilet paper,...

From pruning ferns to feeding camelias, here’s what to do in the garden this week

 1. Cut off the old fern fronds nearly to the ground, so new ones, called fiddleheads, can come up unencumbered. Clean out any dead leaves from other plants as well. For instance, the old flower stems and leaf bases on birds of paradise become unsightly with time can be removed fairly easily with a sideways tug. Even houseplants, such as parlor palms, look better with some grooming. Remove dead leaf bases after they have dried. This cleanup treatment makes a wonderful, refreshing difference in t...

Master Gardener: How to grow blueberries in Southern California

Q: How can I grow blueberries here? I was told that our soil is not acidic enough, but I see blueberry plants for sale everywhere now. I’d like to grow them, but I don’t want to buy a plant just to see it die.  A: Blueberries will grow well here, but you must accommodate their need for acidic soil conditions. I recommend growing them in large, well-draining containers. We use half-whiskey barrels because they are cheap and readily available. Drill some large (1-inch) holes in the bottom of the c...

Airbnb's hosts aren't impressed with the company's $260 million package to make up for coronavirus cancellations . 'People see it for what it is — it's PR.'

Property managers who list accommodations on Airbnb weren't overly impressed with the plan the company announced Monday to help them out. The $250 million fund the company set up to reimburse hosts for cancelled reservations will only cover a portion of lost revenue, and some property managers may see no benefit at all. The separate $10 million pot that Airbnb set aside for its so-called superhosts will likely offer help to only a small number of property managers, because of the difficulty in...
