He liked what he saw. Isaac Lankershim, a successful grain grower and stockman, was impressed by the Valley's high wild oats, which he thought ideal for grazing. Later that year, he heard about the money troubles of Pio Pico, the last Mexican governor of California who also owned much of the Valley.

We simply couldn't resist the intriguing and unusual Japanese foods.

"Bluegrass" has an immediate credibility problem. As any Kentuckian knows, Louisville is pronounced Lou-vul , not Louie-ville . Probably no one will approach this undistinguished two-part CBS drama (9 p.m. Sunday and Monday on Channels 2 and 8) seeking enlightenment, however.
