Local Pinyon Trees Teeming With Wildlife

on September 29, 2019 - 9:01am

Much activity is spotted in recent days since the pinyon nuts have just ripened in the 30-foot tall pinyon trees growing at a residence on Andanada Street on Barranca Mesa. In the last week, all sorts of wildlife have appeared to feast on the bounty. In one day there were Steller's and California scrub jays, pygmy and white-breasted nuthatches, ravens, spotted towhees, morning doves, chipmunks, red squirrels and even a hummingbird. Here a California scrub jay is grabbing a nut from one of the pinyon trees. Photo by Ken Hanson

“Tick, Tick…Boom!” at LALT stole my heart. I wasn’t really expecting it. The tragic story of the death at age 35, of author-composer-lyricist writer Jonathan Larson made me a little scared of this autobiographical musical dramedy, written before the astounding success of “Rent”.

Would it all be tinged with the foreknowledge of what would happen when the story ends?

Daily Postcard: Leaves Turn Color On Cherry Trees

on September 22, 2019 - 7:59am

Daily Postcard: The change of color spotted today on the cherry tree in White Rock marks the start of the fall foliage. This is the last day of summer and with the autumnal equinox a debate erupts around this time each year — and it’s not about where to sip the best apple cider or peep the finest fall foliage. It’s over the exact start date of the fall equinox, which marks the beginning of autumn. Specifically, the 2019 equinox will begin at 3:50 a.m Eastern Standard Time on Sept. 23, when at that precise moment, the sun will be directly in line with the equator. Photo by Nancy Ann Hibbs

A student’s suggestion that this 13th year’s performance of The Family YMCA’s Dance of India classes center on something other than a universally known theme, got the instructor to thinking.

What should pop into the mind of instructor Alina Deshpande but a a ghost-murder mystery where the ghost makes its presence known through the tinkering of bells. It is a fitting theme for the month of October.
