After months of chaotic growth, the homeless encampment known as Tent City dramatically shrank Monday as Ontario police evicted those who lacked ties to the city. Starting early in the morning, officers moved through dusty lots scattered with flapping tents and piles of old clothes and garbage. In many cases they were too late; the people had already left. "About 90% left on their own," said Det. Jeff Higbee, Ontario police spokesman. "There were no arrests, no altercations, no arguments."

With El Nin~o threatening an unusually wet winter and spring, be extra careful to remove all old foliage from your rose plants when you prune them. Old rose leaves protect disease organisms that later revive and thrive in damp conditions, initiating earlier and more damaging infection of new spring foliage.

Now's the time to grow your own roses--from cuttings. It's easy to do, and most varieties will respond beautifully. Here's how to do it: Prune off pencil-size branches from your favorite rose bushes between early November and the beginning of January. Use stems where the flowers have recently died but new growth has not yet sprouted. Ideally the cuttings should be just under three-eighths of an inch thick and about 9 inches long, but anything about the size of an ordinary lead pencil will work.
