Inside Linda Fargo's Epic Grey Gardens–Themed Birthday Party at Hayward House - Vogue.comWednesday, July 05, 2017
Linda Fargo’s Grey Gardens–themed birthday party held Friday night in New York City. Inspired by the Maysles brothers’ 1975 cult classic documentary, Hayward House was transformed into the Beales’ dilapidated East Hamptons compound. Cohosted by Marin Hopper and John Goldstone, the occasion called for decadent attire that followed suit. “In the spirit of Edie Beale, this is all DIY,” Fargo said of fashioning a black turtleneck into a turban and a mink fur coat around her waist like a ball skirt. “I think that’s what everyone remembers about Little Edie—how she took her old finery and recycled it. And brooches with everything.” Fargo made the look her own with custom mink earrings: “These are Ranjana Khan, and speaking of, here are Ranjana and Naeem Khan now,” she said just as the designer husband and wife walked through the door.Upon arrival, a pair of drag performers masquerading as Big Edie and Little Edie greeted guests. Little Edie took turns reading horoscopes, while Big Edie pointed out table assignments that had been given such names as Mother Darling and Cat Land. Past the replica of Big Edie’s rickety twin bed (where several lifelike kitt... http://www.vogue.com/article/linda-fargo-grey-gardens-themed-birthday-party-hayward-house
From flowers to housing: Family-owned Ah Sam property for sale in San Mateo - San Mateo Daily JournalTuesday, May 23, 2017
Developers of those two projects have cited the proximity to the Hillsdale Caltrain station and future grade separations as prime perks for the infill sites.
Further north, the Hayward Park Caltrain station has also spurred a flurry of redevelopment activity. Construction at Station Park Green is underway where 599 housing units will be located adjacent to the nearly complete Hines office complex along Concar Drive. Caltrain is also looking to redevelop a portion of its surface parking lot at the Hayward Park station into a mixed-use housing project as well.
Long gone are the days when neighbors were scattered and development sporadic as Ah Sam first got started in the 1930s. Now, traffic, parking and density are often cited as concerns by neighbors living nearby when housing is proposed.
But as one of the few remaining infill sites that’s completely underutilized, Paris noted he can’t imagine the city approving something other than a TOD housing proposal for the Ah Sam property. Plus, there are extensive planning documents such as the Hillsdale Station Area Plan that call for these types of projects, he said.
“Transit-oriented residential development is a premier use for any of these types of site,” Paris said. “Residential, in our market, is the highest and best use.”

Sensible signings pay dividends for Chargers GM Tom Telesco - ESPN (blog)Tuesday, March 14, 2017
NFL)Total contract value: $149,635,588 (20th in NFL)Three-year W-L: 18-30Biggest hit: Brought in to play nickel defender and add depth at cornerback, former Green Bay Packers defensive back Casey Hayward signed a three-year, $15.3 million deal with the Chargers during the offseason last year. Hayward developed into the Chargers’ best defensive back in 2016 after injuries sidelined starting cornerbacks Jason Verrett and Brandon Flowers. Hayward led the NFL in interceptions last season with seven, which earned him an invitation to the Pro Bowl for the first time in his five-year NFL career. With Verrett, who earned a Pro Bowl invitation in 2015, returning from an ACL knee surgery, the Chargers should have one of the best cornerback tandems in the league in 2017.Biggest miss: The Chargers inked veteran return man Jacoby Jones to a two-year, $5.5 million deal during the 2015 offseason. However, Jones struggled to stay healthy, and his lack of production on the field prompted the Chargers to release him eight games into the regular season. Jones averaged 21.4 yards per return in 2015, his lowest output since his rookie season in 2007 with the Houston Texans. And Jones had minus-4 punt return yards for the Chargers that season. The Chargers finished last in the NFL in 2015 with 84 punt return yards.Sneaky-good move: In search of stability at the center position since longtime anchor of the offensive line Nick Hardwick retired after the 2014 season, the Chargers finally found someone in vetera... http://www.espn.com/blog/san-diego-chargers/post/_/id/19724/focus-on-sensible-signings-pays-dividends-for-chargers-gm-tom-telesco
10 Things to Watch: What's the Plan for Verrett, Flowers and Hayward? - Chargers.comTuesday, July 26, 2016
July 30.What is the Cornerback Rotation?From the moment the Chargers inked former Packer Casey Hayward on March 13, many have wondered how the team plans to use their top three cornerbacks in unison.With Jason Verrett fresh off his first Pro Bowl appearance and former Pro Bowler Brandon Flowers back to full health, what tricks does Defensive Coordinator John Pagano have up his sleeve to deploy the trio at the same time?After seeing glimpses of those plans throughout the offseason program, training camp will offer the best look yet at how they will be used. According to Defensive Backs Coach Ron Milus, it may actually change from week to week come the regular season.“Casey and Brandon have played both outside and inside, but I want Jason to be able to go in there also at any time,” he said. “If we ever get into a game where our matchup is best for Jason to be inside, we can put him in there. If we can get Jason to that point where he is comfortable as the nickel defender, and the other two guys can go outside, I think that helps us. We want those three guys to be able to play al... http://www.chargers.com/news/2016/07/22/10-things-watch-whats-plan-verrett-flowers-and-hayward

Column: Farmers Open fixture: San Diego Police officer Ganley bounces from flowers to fugitives to fairways - The San Diego Union-TribuneSunday, February 09, 2020
Torrey Pines was hiring a golf starter. She had been wowed by Long Island’s Shinnecock Hills, ranked as the best U.S. Open track in history by Golfweek in 2018. Advertisement The Southern California gem hugging the Pacific Ocean coastline stole her breath, though. Still does.“I fell in love with this place,” said Ganley, 57.Along the way, a friend who worked in the police department arranged a ride-along. One thing led to another and, in 1998, she entered the police academy.Ganley shifted to the department’s Special Events Unit and a rare road presented itself. After providing security for a Rolling Stones concert at the Sports Arena, fans long gone and the house lights up, grizzled guitarist Richards sauntered out and parked near Ganley and an EMS worker.“Keith comes out and he’s watching the roadies,” she said. “He’s like, ‘I love watching the roadies. They’re the coolest.’ When they were playing, Sheryl Crow opened for them. So I’m standing stage-right and she’s standing right next to me. I’m like, Mick Jagger is right in front of me and Sheryl Crow is right next to me.“I’m a huge Stones fan, so I’m like, ‘What’s going on?’ ” San Diego police officer Debbie Ganley, left, handles security for Phil Mickelson during the Farmers Insurance Open. Ganley has been the officer in charge since 2002.(Courtesy photo) Memories at Torrey Pines, though, linger most. She was there for seven of Tiger’s eight wins. She was there in 2004, when Daly picked up the last of his five PGA Tour victories. She was there in 2016, when wicked winds uprooted trees and forced a fan-less final round as Brandt Snedeker lifted the trophy in surreal silence. Advertisement When Armen Keteyian co-authored the book “Tiger Woods,” he interviewed Ganley because of her many interactions with the star. She talks about the parents of player Pat Perez on a first-name basis, with a warmth reserved for family.A smile rushed across Ganley’s face as she drifted back to 2008, when a Golf Digest essay contest tied to the U.S. Open selected a random player to play with NFL quarterback Tony Romo, entertainer Justin Timberlake and TV host Matt Lauer.“The USGA said to me, only people with passes are allowed inside the ropes,” said Ganley, who will retire from the department in September. “I’m looking at passes, ‘You need to be outside the ropes,’ ‘You need to be outside the ropes,’ ‘You need to be outside the ropes.’ I wasn’t looking at faces.“I looked up at one point and I was kicking out (Hall of Famer and Masters winner) Freddy Couples. I’m like, ‘I’m sorry, Freddy.’ He laughs and I said, ‘You can stay.’ The rest of the round, he kept asking, ‘Am I OK?’ He is one of the nicest people ever.” San Diego police officer Debbie Ganley, the officer in charge at the Farmers Insurance Open since 2002, was given the tournament’s inaugural Hometown Hero Award.(Bryce Mille... https://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/sports/sports-columnists/story/2020-01-17/farmers-insurance-open-golf-san-diego-police-office-deborah-ganley-tiger-woods-phil-mickelson-john-daly
Gardening: Succulents not only save water and money, but offer other benefits - OCRegisterSunday, February 09, 2020
Santa Barbara growing grounds.The proliferation of succulents among the nursery’s selections may be attributed to a number of factors, but the long periods of drought in California over the past four decades is foremost among them. During this time, many municipalities have resorted to water rationing that makes the planting of lawns, for example, which need almost daily irrigation during the summer to stay lush, problematic. When lawns are removed, succulents — many of which are quite parsimonious when it comes to water consumption — are often called upon to fill the void.There are other reasons which explain why succulents have become the preference of many. Their slow growth means maintenance is less intense than in a garden of more traditional plant fare. Thus, a weekly gardening service is no longer required and the gardener’s monthly service fee is saved. Since there is no mowing and less pruning in a succulent than in a traditionally leafy garden, disposal of green matter is also less of a concern.For years, it was assumed that in order to have a garden of constant color, you needed to plant vivid annual flowers in every season. This was a somewhat costly proposition, however, especially when compared to a garden of evergreen and colorful succulents, where red, blue, yellow, green, pink, and gold are on display 365 days a year.Beyond savings in water, labor, money, and green waste, there is a bonus in store for those who wish to transition to succulents.

Shopping for holiday decor at the L.A. flower mart - Los Angeles TimesSunday, February 09, 2020
Holiday orchids at the Los Angeles Flower Market.(Al Seib / Los Angeles Times) We got up early and went wild retail harvesting with the pair at the Southern California Flower Market and Original Los Angeles Flower Market to see exactly how Juhos and Renna envision a winter forest, without going near a single silver spray-painted branch. Advertisement What does “Winter Forest” mean to you?Juhos: “It’s England, cozy, not wet but damp, think evergreen, snow, the smell of juniper and pine and that feeling you get when you walk into the mountains and being in that environment.”What about using what’s in your yard to decorate?Renna: “Forage, we encourage that. Look outside and you will be amazed at how much is there.” Advertisement How can we break away from that traditional holiday look?Juhos: “It’s psychological; you don’t have to do what your parents did. If your family had a fake tree, it doesn’t mean you have to. Start your own tradition. Trust what you like. People have collections of heirlooms from their families, incorporate those but still make it new.” Nicole Renna gathers her selection at O&J Growers in the early morning hours at the Los Angeles Flower Market.(Al Seib/Los Angeles Times) What’s the biggest mistake people make in their holiday decor? Renna: “They don’t take enough risks. People think there are rules — red balls, gold balls — but there are no rules. That’s the beauty of design: Make your own rules. If you want to have a pink Christmas, do a pink Christmas.”What are you looking for when you go to the flower market?Juhos: “Special things. Unique. Ideally long-lasting; we don’t want to be selling stuff that’s going to die in a day. We look for the freshest product possible, like a chef going straight to a farm.” Nicole Renna with protea at the Los Angeles Flower Market.(Al Seib / Los Angeles Times) Advertisement Do you like poinsettias?Renna: “We like them. But people assume that means the red ones with the foil you buy at the supermarket. That’s not the kind we’re talking about. The nontraditional colors are actually really pretty; there’s a light pink one, a sherbet color, a beautiful gold. Just use one in an arrangement.”Fiore Designs’ favorite stalls at the Southern California Flower Market... https://www.latimes.com/lifestyle/story/2019-12-14/browsing-the-la-flower-mart
