When Jose and Alicia Esquivias first saw their 1920s Spanish Revival bungalow in the historic Rose Park district of Long Beach, it definitely didn't look like their dream home. Squatters had invaded the house, causing damage. "My wife's reaction was, 'No way am I going to live here,' " Jose Esquivias said. The two-bedroom, one-bath house had 30 code violations that had to be corrected before the Esquiviases could move in. In the bathroom there were holes in the walls and the floor.

Artist Joel Tauber was captivated the first time he laid eyes on the little sycamore in the middle of the Rose Bowl parking lot. "It struck me on a metaphorical level," he says. "It just seemed like this forgotten figure in this sea of asphalt, and that seemed indicative of where we are environmentally." Since that day two years ago, Tauber has devoted his life and art to the tree. He began watering it and installed metal railings to protect it from cars. Now he is helping it reproduce.

With water from the storms of the past week still standing on grassy areas around the Rose Bowl, Pasadena city officials decided Monday not to allow use of those areas for parking during the Rose Bowl game. The change, expected to reduce parking by 75%, will require increased use of shuttle buses for spectators going to the afternoon game and the parking of cars four and five deep on nearby streets.

Orlando Alayu was joyous last year when he was transferred to the Exposition Park rose garden and named senior gardener. To him, working among the 20,000 rosebushes is both the highest meditation and a public service. "You don't do this for money," says Alayu, who works for the Los Angeles Recreation and Parks Department. "Being able to come to work and see a bud become a blossom before you go home at night is a reminder of the mystery of nature.

Ronald H. Banner started small in 1988, opening a modest treatment center for addicts in Rose Park, an aging Long Beach neighborhood filled with turn-of-the century bungalows. Then he began buying the surrounding real estate, steadily building a portfolio of more than 20 buildings that were converted into treatment facilities and sober-living homes for an expanding client list. Virtually all are in the same square block.

While officials in Northern California on Tuesday worked to clean up from the weekend storms, some of their Southern California counterparts fretted over where to put tens of thousands of cars expected for today's Rose Bowl game. Parking for the big game in Pasadena will be tight because a nearby golf course that is used as a parking lot was flooded in the recent rainstorms.
