An Oroville man facing two life terms in prison for child molestation was released from jail after a clerical error allowed him to post a significantly lower bail. Erbie Bostian, 38, was charged in August with five felony child molestation counts, including two that carry life terms upon conviction. His bail was set at $360,000. But the court paperwork sent to the jail listed bail at $36,000, which Bostian quickly posted.

Residents realized they were in for trouble when an early morning explosion shook the Koppers Co. wood-treatment plant south of Oroville, pushing up a tower of acrid black smoke that burned their lungs and blistered their skin. When small but unhealthy traces of the toxic material dioxin turned up a few months later in locally produced eggs, chickens and beef, they realized the problem was not going to go away.

Those Niemeyer boys are something else, they'll tell you up here. Clean-cut, good kids. Even better students. Chris was valedictorian at Oroville High in 1998. Hot on his high-tops came Jason, top academic graduate in the class of '99. But instead of finishing high school awash in accolades, the brothers Niemeyer each ended senior year swamped by controversy, tussling with school administrators over God and graduation.

Garden long enough, and you may tire of common flowers and gravitate toward the unique and unusual. Although local nurseries carry offbeat flower plants at times, they don't have the space or staff to consistently stock a wide variety. Open up one of the many mail-order garden catalogs, however, and you'll discover a whole new world of plants with captivating blossoms. There are flowers in just about every color and shape--and many you never dreamed existed.

After summer flowers have faded and before winter bloomers appear, asters light up the garden with their cheery, daisy-like flowers. Native to temperate regions in the Northern Hemisphere, they grow well in our mild Southern California weather.

Anyone who lives close to the beach probably is gardening on top of ancient sand dunes. These stable dunes may look like coastal hills, but dig into one and you'll find the soil is still sandy. Susan Rudnicki gardens inland on the second of three long dunes in Manhattan Beach, just above the old Pacific Electric line that now serves as a greenbelt and jogging corridor though the middle of the city. And her sumptuous garden shows what can be done with a sandy soil that has been improved.

Everyone loves lemon. Its smell enlivens and rejuvenates us, suggesting summer and the warmth of sunshine. The taste of lemon reminds us of iced tea with citrus slices and mile-high lemon meringue pies. It also makes our mouths pucker, creating that unmistakable twinge at the back of the jaws. A lemon garden not only lends to these sensory pleasures but also becomes a joyous burst of light in the summer landscape.
