I just got back from a week in New Mexico, and that usually means, by rough calculation, having consumed approximately 21 meals based on chile, most of it green. That's not including snacks. This time the number was far lower. And for the first time I can remember, I didn't have to smuggle hardly any home in my luggage, either. That's certainly not because I've lost my affection for the fiery stuff, but rather because it's becoming so readily available in Southern California. Green chile roasts are now regular fall events here, held at farmers markets and supermarkets alike.

Despite fevered social media speculation to the contrary, the green velvet tuxedo that Ben Haggerty (the Macklemore half of Macklemore and Ryan Lewis) recently wore to the 56th Grammy Awards did not come from a thrift shop -- it was custom-made for the musician by fashion designer Logan Neitzel. Ever since the Grammy telecast we've been on the hunt to get the details about the eye-catching threads since it was one of our favorite classy but just-different-enough looks of the whole night.

The fluorescent green Spring Street bike lane that bicyclists and downtown residents loved but film location scouts and production managers hated has been stripped off the street. It's been repainted a darker shade of green. In fact, it looks more turquoise than green. That should make the film folks happy -- or at least, happier than when Spring Street, one of the most filmed and photographed locales in Los Angeles, featured a 1.4-mile strip of green so bright that under lights for filming it bounced off and tinted everything it touched, including actors' faces.

The fading yet controversial green bike lane that stretches through downtown Los Angeles on Spring Street may be getting a fresh coat of paint that all - including the temperamental asphalt - can live with. Bicyclists and downtown residents love the highly visible 1.4-mile bike lane that runs from Cesar Chavez to 9th Street. But film and TV location scouts hate the fluorescent green ribbon that runs through the heart of the most popular filming location in Los Angeles. Under bright lights, this particular green bounces off every surface it hits (including actors' faces)

We have an international incident at the Cadillac Championship after Ian Poulter of England blasted playing partner Hideki Matsuyama of Japan on Twitter as an "idiot" for damaging the 13th green at Doral, Fla., with his putter after missing a par putt on Friday. Former Masters champion Charl Schwartzel noticed the half-inch gash in the green when lining up a 12-foot par putt on the same line while playing in a group behind Matsuyama and Poulter. An official was called to the scene of the crime and repaired the green.

Interest in the environment is heating up as fast as global warming. Contributions to the Sierra Club soared 33% last year, homeowners are installing solar panels, and even preschool children are recycling. At the same time, nonfiction filmmakers are trying to shape the ecological conversation, turning out an abundance of critically acclaimed, Earth-friendly documentaries. But three years after "An Inconvenient Truth" won over moviegoers and Oscar voters, many new works are suffering the same fate plaguing other intellectually engaging films: moviegoers would rather hug Transformers than trees.

Located in northern Beijing, the Olympics complex is not just green in name. Many of its newly built structures have been designed to be more energy-efficient than traditional buildings. -- Source: 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics

I did not finish the article about the eco-minded Post Ranch Inn ("Go Ahead, Indulge," June 1) because I believe the only "green" the owners of this hotel are concerned with is of the folding variety. Alex Fernandez Lakewood
