Tribune Co. has a new strategy for boosting readership among Southern California's booming Latino population. The Chicago-based media company this week named Javier J. Aldape as general manager and editor of Hoy-Los Angeles, the Spanish-language sister paper of The Times. Aldape, 35, also was named vice president for audience development of the Los Angeles Times Media Group, a post in which he will try to help The Times figure out how to attract more Latino readers.

For almost 30 years, Chicago Tribune columnist Bob Greene was an institution in this city. With a straightforward Midwestern style, he came to epitomize the folksier side of American values. He wrote about Elvis and Michael Jordan and the plight of abused children.

I don't know how to say hello. The reason for my temporary inability to greet you with my usual loopy smile is that just a few weeks ago I wrote what seemed to be my last column for the L.A. by God Times, during which I said a pretty final goodbye. I had been fired, axed, canned, sacked or whatever verb you prefer. My career was kaput.

Jim O'Shea, who should know, says if you want to learn to make pasta, spend time in Saudi Arabia. Not that every oasis boasts its own trattoria, mind you; quite the opposite. "The simple fact," says O'Shea, who spent two years in the Middle East running a hospital, "is that if you want a good meal of any kind there, you have to make it." That is why the Irvine resident got into cooking.

Contrary to anything else you might've heard, things are really looking up for Tribune Co. employees these days. Tribune owns the Chicago Cubs as well as The Times, and recently both have gone on spending sprees. Happy days are here again. The Cubs just put out more than $230 million on employees such as Lou Piniella, Alfonso Soriano, Wade Miller, Kerry Wood, Aramis Ramirez, Mark DeRosa and Henry Blanco.

A meeting of San Diego State University's Associated Students Council scheduled for Wednesday could determine the fate of KCR, the campus radio station. For more than 20 years, KCR has operated as a training ground for radio personnel. Forget the posturing of XTRA-FM (91X), KCR is the top radio station in San Diego for programming new music that doesn't get aired elsewhere. In that sense, it has operated as a true campus radio station, always on the edge.

You'd think that California Highway 29 running through the heart of the Napa Valley would be slaughter alley. After all, in the 30-mile stretch of two-lane road between Napa in the south and Calistoga in the north, about three dozen winery tasting rooms on both sides of the road serve wine without charge.

Herbert and Marion Sandler guided Golden West Financial Corp. for 43 years, past the frauds and failures of other savings and loans in the 1980s, through a long California recession and sinking home prices in the early 1990s and to the brink of the mortgage meltdown last year. Then the Sandlers sold their Oakland-based company, the parent of World Savings, for $24 billion, emerging with impeccable timing from the battered home-loan business. What to do for an encore?

The Puente Hills fire that destroyed 13 homes on July 3 came within a mile of Michael Rodriguez's wood-roofed house. Rodriguez was planning to replace his 13-year-old roof eventually, but the fire motivated him to do it immediately. "It hurried things up a little because we thought we might get another fire," he said. The new tile roof was not cheap--it cost $12,000, and the attic of Rodriguez's two-story, five-bedroom home in Hacienda Heights had to be reinforced to support the extra weight.
