In 1848, after some hostilities, a U.S. State Department chief clerk named Nicholas Trist worked out a deal whereby we bought California, New Mexico and Texas from Mexico for $15 million and change — a bargain price for 1.2 million acres. The Mexican signatories of the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo probably consoled themselves with the thought that most of what they were losing was, after all, desert. Most of it still is. Which is why water is so important out here. In the TV Westerns I watched as a boy, many plots were based upon the trek through the desert — the merciless sun, the empty canteen, the parched lips, the alkali dust.

Ventriloquism has been moving more and more into the entertainment mainstream of late, with "America's Got Talent" winner Terry Fator ensconced in Las Vegas and the ubiquitous Jeff Dunham filling the TV channels with characters ranging from a dead terrorist to a jalapeño on a stick. To that short list of comic spellbinders must now be added Jay Johnson, who's both a master ventriloquist and a devoted student of the art. He's currently demonstrating his ample skills in an all-too-brief engagement at the Laguna Playhouse.

Laguna Beach may be on the verge of losing its hospital, but those in the know aren’t talking. The agenda for a closed City Council meeting Friday has spurred speculation that all or part of Adventist Health’s hospital property in Laguna Beach is for sale. City officials declined to comment about the closed door meeting, the purpose of which was to discuss possible litigation and provide direction to city staff regarding real estate negotiations for three addresses connected to South Coast Medical Center, the city’s hospital for about 50 years.

The shooting this week of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords stunned our nation. For a few moments, no one was able to point fingers or abdicate responsibility. Everyone stood together in grief. Here is a highly respected and educated woman, a Democrat elected by her constituency to guide southern Arizona. She is considered one of the most centrist legislators in Congress, and is a strong supporter of fiscal responsibility, bipartisanship and government accountability. She has introduced legislations designed to hamper and curtail drug trafficking, immigration reform, and stronger border protection.

Steve Kawaratani "Tiptoe through the tulips..." -- Tiny Tim "Her Lips were red ... " -- Samuel Taylor Coleridge The tulip is the perhaps the best known of all bulbs. Its brilliant spring display is enjoyed in Laguna and throughout the world. The flowers vary considerably in color, form and height. Tulips are spectacular when massed alone or combine beautifully with other spring flowers such as alyssum, pansies and violas. Where you decide to enjoy tulips is only limited by your imagination, rock gardens, planting beds and containers are just a few suggestions.

The City Council has approved a partnership between Laguna Beach and local Little League to renovate baseball fields at Riddle Field and Alta Laguna Park in the next two months. The estimated cost for both fields is $33,000, with the league committed to paying $25,000, while the council's action - a 5-0 vote at its Jan. 7 meeting - allows the city to provide matching funds not to exceed $12,500, according to a city staff report. The league's board of directors in December approved renovations for both sites.

“The roses you lifted to your lips ... lucky roses!” — Charlie Chaplin The quest for perfect roses in your garden begins with the major rose pruning events during the summer: flower cutting, deadheading, grooming and disbudding. Cutting flowers is probably the most enjoyable summer pruning job. After all, many of us grow roses so they may be appreciated indoors. Those flowers that don’t make it indoors should be deadheaded. Remove flowers as soon as they have faded and the petals are about to fall.

Lord Tyson Chandler of Sausalito is 4 years old and four years wise — well sorta. While walking around he runs into walls, furniture, trees, people and anything else that gets in his path head first. (Note the flat face; and we thought it was the breed.) He is an English bulldog with very distinguishing brindle and white markings. The English bulldog is a wide, medium-sized, compact dog with short legs. The body and head are massive with extra skin on both the skull and forehead falling in folds.

On Sept. 12, 2001, Americans everywhere awoke and were, perhaps, blessed with a moment or two of forgetfulness about the horrors of the day before. Then the awareness came rushing back -- the memories of the fiery images of inhumanity -- and we knew that no matter how much we wished it otherwise, we would never be the same. Everywhere were signs that life was a long way from normal that Wednesday. Someone awaking from a two-day coma might have described the setting as peaceful and serene.
