The history behind the Hacienda Restaurant is almost as good as its award-winning margaritas and Sunday brunches. The house, which began modestly as a garage and a small apartment, was built in the 1910s by the Strange family. When the Depression hit, most of the family returned to New York, with the exception of son William, a would-be Hollywood producer.

How to express the sense of freedom I felt when I learned that Hacienda Heights would maintain its unique characteristics by not becoming a city? Hacienda Heights is truly an oasis not bound by added rules, regulations, etc. like those imposed by neighboring cities--cities that are digging into their reserves to stay afloat. We, the people, were not fooled by the political rhetoric that bombarded us at our doorsteps and visually polluted the environment. DARLENE WILLIAMS Hacienda Heights

"One of these days, Mom," Jerome told her when he phoned Sunday evening, "I've got to settle down." Images of a wedding, a wife and grandchildren spun into Polly's head. She wished she could shove her arms through the receiver and hug her son. He had always been such a loner, traipsing the world with everything he owned on his back, but somehow he'd managed to stay alive, working as a fisherman, a lifeguard and a skipper of a garbage scow.
HOME & GARDEN
October 2, 2003
I enjoyed the pictorials on haciendas ("So Simple, So Natural, So Very California" and "In the Rancho Spirit," Sept. 25). The pictures remind me so much of my parents' house. They live in a hacienda from the '20s. The house was built by the Stoody family and sat on more than 60 acres in what is now Whittier. My parents bought the home from the family estate with some of the original furnishings. It was certainly good to see a homage to some of the roots of early Californian family life.
