Ann Thompson still marvels at the sliver of ranchland she has lived on for the last eight years. "I fell in love with the house," she says of the Spanish Colonial-style home known as the DeWenter Mansion that sits in the quiet foothills of La Verne. "For my husband, it was the property. " Thompson is the most recent resident of an enduring landmark that recalls the heyday of the orange and lemon industry that brought millions of dollars to La Verne in the early 20th century. Many of the original citrus trees still surround the house at this onetime ranch.

A stately traditional home with Spanish Colonial elements and a historic pedigree is the centerpiece of this oak-shaded estate in the hills of San Marino. Designed by noted residential architect Roland E. Coate, the home was built in 1926 for Annie Wilson, daughter of pioneering Southern California businessman and politician Benjamin Wilson, for whom Mt. Wilson is named. The gently sloping 1-acre-plus property was once part of the vast holdings of George S. Patton, father of the famed U.S. general, according to real estate historian Tim Gregory.

Re "Garcetti favors familiar faces," Oct. 10 This article is worthy of being turned into a "Seinfeld" episode - because it's about nothing. L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti is picking the team that will help him enact his policies. He must choose people he knows will do that. After Mayor Tom Bradley was elected in 1973, I collected resumes for his administration. Because of the historic nature of that election, its results were known worldwide. We received several hundred applications from all over the world, from Tarzana to Tanzania.

Here are tips for avoiding new fees on your checking account: Read your mail. Notice of a new fee will show up first in an enclosure with your bank statement. Push back. A new fee often is a test of what you will tolerate. Call your bank and ask how to avoid it. How do you bank? Your bank may offer another account type that fits better with your pattern of transactions. Shop around. If you can't avoid fees at your current bank, consider moving. Credit unions, community banks and small regional banks are more likely to offer a better deal.

Even when Pau Gasol scored those six points in the first quarter and took those five shots, it wasn't as though the Lakers were feeding the ball down low to their All-Star power forward. So perhaps, then, it should not have been a surprise that Gasol was not a force on offense during the Lakers' 93-86 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers on Friday night at the Rose Garden. But in many ways, Gasol and frontcourt mate Andrew Bynum were not overwhelming factors on defense either.

MEXICO CITY - Rescue teams were searching Thursday for an estimated 68 people believed buried in a mudslide after multiple storms battered large swaths of Mexico, killing nearly 100 people nationwide and leaving thousands stranded or homeless. While much attention was focused on tourists caught in the Pacific resort of Acapulco, grimmer reports emerged from villages in that hard-hit region of Guerrero state, which were largely cut off from aid and may have suffered large-scale devastation.

Re "Senate panel supports U.S. strike on Syria," Sept. 5 It's time to call everyone's bluff on the Syrian chemical issue to smoke out the contending parties. Whether it be Bashar Assad's regime, the rebels, the U.S. and its allies, Arab states, the Russians or the Iranians, all claim they are against chemical weapons use in Syria. Leaving aside the wink-wink involved - obviously, some party (think the Assad regime) used the weapons in the August attack - let's put the representations to the test.

The Angels, in desperate need of young, effective and inexpensive starting pitchers, appear to have found one right in their own house. Garrett Richards recovered from a shaky start Saturday night to blank Texas on two hits from the third through seventh innings and lead the Angels to an 8-3 victory over the Rangers in Angel Stadium, their 12thwin in 15 games. The 25-year-old right-hander opened the season in the bullpen, made four starts in late April and went back to a relief role before replacing struggling right-hander Joe Blanton in the rotation in late July.

Fire crews made significant headway Saturday containing the Silver fire, which has blackened 19,000 acres and destroyed 26 homes in the San Gorgonio Pass in Riverside County. By evening the wildfire was 70% contained and the 2,106 firefighters on the scene had succeeded in keeping the blaze out of the San Bernardino National Forest. "Things are looking real good," said Robbie Richard, a spokesman for the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection. Evacuation orders had been lifted for several areas, although they remained in place for the communities of Vista Grande, Twin Pines and Silent Valley.

Re "No-otter zone is sought by lawsuit," Aug. 2 I was the chief negotiated for affected fishermen before Congress established the "otter-free zone" off the Southern California coast in 1986. But in 1993, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service abandoned that program. Before the passage of Public Law 99-625 in 1986, our legal counsel at the time, the Pacific Legal Foundation, determined that the proposal to translocate sea otters to San Nicolas Island violated the Marine Mammal Protection Act. Attorneys for the Interior Department agreed.

Re "Israelis and Palestinians to confront tough issues," July 31 It is disappointing that the United States continues to show unconditional support for Israel even when our ally violates international law and ignores U.N. resolutions condemning its behavior. From 1972 to 2011, the United States has issued the only vetoes to 42 U.N. Security Council resolutions condemning Israel's behavior, most of which were related to the occupied territories. These negotiations would be unnecessary if Israel would respect U.N. resolutions and the International Court of Justice concerning settlements, borders, the right of return, the separation barrier with much of the West Bank and the status of Jerusalem.

Re "Politicians take to the couch," Opinion, Aug. 1 Meghan Daum makes an important point: Two weeks of psychotherapy treatment for San Diego's embattled mayor, Bob Filner, will barely begin to scratch the surface of behavioral patterns that have been in force for decades. Even if Filer had multi-hour daily sessions for two weeks (unlikely), his initial resistance to being forced into treatment, combined with an ulterior motive (protect his career) means that much of the time would be taken up dealing with those issues and not his behavior toward women.
