Rosemont Middle School’s semi-annual Lunch on the Lawn event is proof that middle schoolers really can enjoy their parents’ company. Under a warm sun, students and parents gathered on the school’s middle field and amphitheater for lunch on a recent Friday afternoon. Shade being at a premium, those who were able squeezed beneath leafy trees, while others sat under colorful umbrellas. Everyone appeared to be enjoying themselves, smiling, laughing and chatting together while enjoying an afternoon meal.

Dear Home Seller, Thank you for allowing us in your home during yesterday's open house. Our Realtor suggested we include this personal letter with our bid to set us apart from the 83 other offers you're likely drooling over right now. I'm supposed to tell you how thrilled we'd be to spend the better part of $1 million to be the next proud owner of your 1,200-square-foot, depression-era fixer-upper. We hope you find our bid of $75,000 over asking price pleasing. I fancy myself a writer, but I've got nothing on the wordsmith who drafted the listing for your "quaint California bungalow.

I have a sister who is wealthy enough to have installed artificial turf in her backyard (“Council, residents weigh in on allowing artificial turf in front yards,” Aug. 11). To her, it made sense because she has three dogs. In order for her to maintain the aesthetic of a green lawn with no yellow spots from dog urine, she wanted to try the artificial turf. After three years of having her artificial turf, there are no yellow spots, but her grass has lost its initial luster and color, and it does not resemble anything in nature.

Paul Clinton GLENDALE -- Police launched a murder investigation Sunday after finding a 65-year-old woman dead on her front lawn, a police spokesman said. Glendale police spokesman Rick Young would not release the woman's name, since her family had not been contacted, but said she died from blunt force trauma to the upper body. The woman's husband, Allen Reich, found his wife on the lawn of the couple's 192 Wonderview Drive home Sunday morning, shortly before he reported the death at 6:16 a.m., Young said.

The Crescenta Valley Water District last weekend dedicated its new water-conserving garden. It replaced the district's thirsty garden, originally created as a celebration of water. At the moment, the district's new garden doesn't really look like much. The native plants are still small, and to be honest there's a lot of dirt between them. It's a far cry from the mature pine trees the CVWD cut down to make room for this landscaping. But give it time, and it will be beautiful.

In a recent news article, it was suggested that David Wood’s synthetic lawn is a controversial violation of city codes (“Not the typical turf war,” Aug. 7). Forgive me for failing to see the controversy in such an isolated case. It is not as if Wood is scattering auto parts on his lawn, asking to put cardboard cutouts of Hollywood celebrities in front of his house, or even mounting those dreaded plastic flamingos. Then I would understand calling the tacky police and issuing a citation.

Guest Column By Vasken Yardemian As we prepare to turn back our clocks an hour on Sunday, Oct. 31, for the Daylight Saving that is also a good time to adjust our outdoor watering habits. This means more than just adjusting the clocks on our automatic systems. Shorter daylight hours and cooler temperatures mean gardens and lawns need less water. Those with automatic sprinkler systems or other irrigation devices with timers are encouraged initially to reduce the amount of time per irrigation by at least one-third for lawn watering in fall and plan for another reduction in winter.
