What causes honeybee die-off and how to help the bees

Q: I live in Huntington Beach and have a lot of dead bees on my patio. This happened last summer, too. I do not use pesticides, insecticides or herbicides. Any thoughts? A: Honeybee die-off has been an ongoing issue for the last 20 years. In the early 2000s, colony collapse was blamed on a tracheal mite that parasitized European honeybees. Treatment with miticide solved this problem – until the mites developed resistance. When you see a lot of dead bees in one place, insecticide exposure is the ...

Hope for California Republicans

Last week’s stock market crash offered hope for Republicans looking to make a comeback in California in 2022. When times are good, people don’t want to make a change. When the going gets tough, the tough want to elect somebody else. Many reasons were given for the Republican loss of the September 14 recall to Gov. Gavin Newsom: A hangover from Donald Trump. Latinos still are mad at Republicans for Proposition 187 from 1994 — 27 years ago. Republicans want to end the school mask mandates and kill...

French Ways

Finally at the end of summer the warm weather has arrived in Provence, driving everyone either inside or to the beach. Luckily, for us our maison du village (house in the village) has stone walls that are over three feet thick. Our maison's wall butts up against the neighbor's maison's wall creating a six foot thick stone wall. Insulation at its finest: Cool interior in the summer, holds heat in during the winter. Our home is a mere four hundred years old... and yes most French household ke...

What will come of commercial real estate tax breaks?

As one Register columnist once wrote, “they’re only opinions, but they’re all mine!” Today, I purge my inbox for another edition of a random commercial real estate thoughts.

STANFORD — They filed into Stanford Stadium as the visiting team amidst a sea of red on a hazy Saturday afternoon, wearing their white tops and gold pants. They warmed up in the end zone next to their band — which was tucked into the corner — their cleats stepping on logos on the field that were not their own. And when they ran back onto the field before kickoff with their fight song playing, barely anyone noticed after Stanford’s smoke-filled entrance was met with a roar from the home crowd. Fo...
