Lightning struck a judges stand at Huntington Beach Pier Friday night, forcing cancellation of today's surfing portion of the two-day Op Winter Surf Pro. The event combines surfing and snowboarding. Surfing was to be held today in Huntington Beach, with snow-boarding Sunday at Big Bear Mountain. The coordinator of the event, Judy Horton, said there wasn't time to rebuild the judging stand. She said a determination would be made today if the snowboarding will be held Sunday.

My heart goes out to the Shoemakers, as I am a racing fan and have followed Bill's career through the years. But after reading Elliott Almond's article on April 29, it became apparent to me that all those notables responsible for setting up the Shoemaker Foundation are forgetting that he was driving drunk and could have killed or maimed someone else. I am sorry for the Shoemakers, but more sorry for the rest of the people in the world who suffer tragedies as great (as) or greater than Bill's through no fault of their own. How about helping them?

Hooray, my Thursday morning garden read has been restored to normal. Last week's "to do" list was like a visit with an old friend ("It's January -- Time to Grab a Shovel," Jan. 15), and today's winter walk in Judy Horton's garden was so uplifting ("A Season of Quiet Beauty," Jan. 22). I hope it will be possible to continue to include Bob Smaus' point of view, along with the marvelous work of Emily Green and others in future issues. Susan Keirn Los Angeles

A tuft of poppies growing underneath a streetlight in the Hollywood Hills blasts unexpected color along the sidewalk, but the real surprise rests behind the tall ficus hedge, inside Judy Horton's 1925 cottage. When the garden designer and plant lover moved here in 2005, she knew she wanted to see her landscape from the interiors of the small rental. It is, she said, what drives her design process: gardening from the inside out. PHOTO GALLERY: Gardening from the inside out So before she planted anything, she stood inside every room in the cottage and looked out the windows and French doors.

I greatly enjoyed "A Family's Sanctuary" (Aug. 19). As a friend of Christy Hobart, I've had the pleasure of experiencing her incredible garden for myself. Each year, we are happy and grateful to sit among the fruit trees and flowers celebrating another birthday for her seriously ill son, Ben. Tuberous sclerosis affects as many people as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (also known as Lou Gehrig's disease), over 1 million people worldwide, yet it still remains virtually unknown by the general population and has very little funding for research.
Officials have dropped the team format for the Op Pro surfing championships in favor of individual championships for the 1993 contest, which is scheduled June 26-July 3 at the Huntington Beach Pier. The 12th Op Pro will be either a four- or five-star qualifying event for the Assn. of Surfing Professionals world tour and will offer at least a $75,000 purse, said Judy Horton, Op marketing and event coordinator.

THE 2-acre Storrier-Stearns garden in Pasadena, one of Southern California's few unaltered Japanese-style estate gardens designed before World War II, will open its gates for a rare public tour this weekend. Created by master landscaper Kinzuchi Fujii in the 1930s, the garden retains his original plan and many architectural and ornamental features installed before Fujii's internment during the war.

Lucy Toberman, who has launched at least 30 organizations in town in the last 50 years, will be honored today by The Presidents at a luncheon for 36 at Carolyn Singleton's house in Holmby Hills. Lucy founded The Presidents on the premise that no one wanted to be president of an organization, but they were all presidents anyway, or presidential timber, and enjoyed sociability. The concept: have a soiree now and then to raise big sums, but do it effortlessly.

It may look understated, but a green-and-white garden is far from simple. It takes careful selection of foliage plants in artfully mixed shades of green to paint a scene that looks fresh no matter the season. Interior designer Suzanne Rheinstein, who owns the West Hollywood antiques and furnishings store Hollyhock, redid her garden five years ago with this goal in mind.
When a garden is divided into "rooms"--a classic landscaping ploy--each takes on its own identity and purpose, making the whole more interesting and useful. Chopping a garden into pieces doesn't necessarily make it feel smaller. It often has the opposite effect, since there are now places to go and things to see around the next hedge, or through the next portal.
