Taking America on the road

There are many ways in which seniors keep themselves active and "plugged in," but Valencia resident Molly Hodson, 70, seems to be taking things about as far as they can go.

Truth in the corner of your eye

Now, I don't credit fortune cookies with any more power to predict the future than I do horoscopes. However, I always enjoy reading both, if only to see just how far off the mark they are, or just how vague they can be … you know, vague enough so that those fools of us who read them might imagine there is some truth there and actually think they were written by wise wizards in tune with the universal vibration.

Under the swaying SCV palms

When it comes time to select trees for their landscaping, many SCV homeowners overlook one of the best choices: the palm. According to Richard Green of Green Landscape Nursery in Saugus, in general, palms are slow growing, drought tolerant and low maintenance, and they have a root "ball" that usually doesn't cause problems with sidewalks and retaining walls and such.
