Frank Greminger, a fixture on the Agoura High sideline for 25 years, will be remembered every time anyone checks the score at the school's stadium. Before Agoura's game against Thousand Oaks, the stadium was dedicated to Greminger, the Chargers' coach from 1969-94. A new scoreboard, unveiled Friday night, reads "Frank Greminger Stadium." The honor was a surprise to Greminger, who was escorted to the field in a police car. "We kept this a big-time secret," Agoura Athletic Director John Crow said.

In truth, fall is probably the best all-around planting time for Southern California, according to Elaine Thompson, executive director of the California Assn. of Nurserymen. Gardening in spring is a transplanted Eastern tradition that doesn't quite translate to the West Coast. Planting in spring means that perennials will have to withstand the hot, arid Southern California summer before they can really establish a stable root system, and often that is simply asking too much of a plant.
