Scott Wilson, an ardent horticulturist known for his pledge to plant five trees a day for the rest of his life and his commitment to helping at-risk teenagers find employment in environmental restoration programs, has died. He was 89. Wilson was clipping red blossoms from a firewheel tree in the rose garden of his Eagle Rock home to decorate his church when he lost consciousness and fell Nov. 5, said Mark B. Kenyon, executive director of North East Trees, a nonprofit environmental organization Wilson founded in 1989.

The tech industry has been buzzing in recent weeks about the sudden burst of announcements about wearable computing, and in particular about rumors that Apple is working on some kind of iWatch. But in the view of some Apple fans, such a gadget wouldn't be Apple's first watch. As far as they're concerned, Apple already released -- and then withdrew -- its first watch when it introduced the 6 th generation of its iPod Nano in 2010. STORY: Waiting for Apple's iWatch As part of a larger story about Apple's iWatch plans, I spoke with Scott Wilson, a Chicago-based designer who has been involved in various ways with smartwatch efforts over the years.

Scott Wilson made the cover of Life Magazine in 1967. To prove it, as much to himself as visitors, he has a framed copy of the May 12 issue hanging in his study. It depicts Wilson, then 24, Robert Blake and Truman Capote--stars and author of "In Cold Blood"--posing on a lonely stretch of Kansas highway.

Making her narrative feature directing debut, septuagenarian singer-actress Connie Stevens has gathered an accomplished cast for "Saving Grace B. Jones," an "inspired by a true story" memory piece set during the Great Flood of 1951. Like many first-time directors, Stevens tries too hard to be "cinematic"; the material would have benefited from a more restrained approach. But at its most straightforward, the film is an effective drama about a 10-year-old city girl's eye-opening summer in the rural Midwest.

It is dark and musty here, a living duffel bag, crammed with the wrinkled spoils of a life in the bleachers. Nearly everything cluttering the tiny rooms is orange, or horned, or both. Flags drape the ceilings, posters fill the walls, a worn tangerine carpet covers the creaky floor. When Scott Wilson cheerfully says, "Take a seat," he could be talking about the giant University of Texas helmet that doubles as a stool.

I appreciated your article on the very underappreciated talents of actor Scott Wilson ("Actor Anonymous," by Glenn Lovell, March 17). I was saddened, however, to hear that he feels his career has been unsuccessful. While this may be the case financially, this is certainly not the case artistically. The dignity and soul which he has always brought to even the smallest of roles has been a joy to behold over the years. This is no small achievement in a business filled with the allure of easy money from straight-to-video thrillers or junk-food TV. While the words "art" and "integrity" are always overused during this awards show-saturated time of year, these words have always applied to Scott Wilson's work.

I was glad to see I wasn't the only one that had such a strong feeling about your Scott Wilson article ("Actor Anonymous," by Glenn Lovell, March 17). He broke my heart in "The Ninth Configuration," one of my favorite movies, delivering Capt. Cutshaw's explanation of why he wouldn't go to the moon, how unbearably alone he would have felt if he'd been stranded there. It still haunts me. JON COOKSEY Woodland Hills Here in Europe, we love to see our favorite character actors, sometimes more so than the actual film stars.

Tree planting is the kind of activity that grows on you. Just ask Scott Wilson, a founding member of North East Trees, who has been planting since he was a kid in Oregon. And Saturday he will be out doing it again with some young sycamores at Loreto Street Elementary School in the Mt. Washington area.

"Think of bouncing up and down in the back of the school bus," Scott Butler says. "Now think of 135,000 gallons of water bouncing up from a tank at the back of a ship that's a quarter-mile long. Even seas that don't seem that rough at all can send water jumping out onto the deck." Butler, a principal of Boston-based Wilson Butler Architects, is discussing the design challenges in creating the Aqua Theater on the Oasis of the Seas, which is almost as long as the Empire State Building is high.

A warehouse store manager was shot point-blank in the head before dozens of terrified shoppers who ducked for cover during the attempted robbery just before noon Thursday. Scott H. Wilson, 30, a customer service manager at Home Base in Santa Ana, had just finished making change for a $50 bill when someone lunged toward him, shouted and fired a shot at his right temple, police said. Wilson was taken to UC Irvine Medical Center in Orange and was in critical condition late Thursday.

Katy Perry is revealing details of her short-lived marriage to British comedian Russell Brand  - and they sure are fireworks. The 28-year-old pop star, who is voicing Smurfette in the upcoming flick "Smurfs 2," opened up about her relationships with Brand and musician John Mayer in Vogue's July issue , candidly expressing how hurt she was during her breakups and how she hasn't heard from Brand in some time. Her ex-husband Brand, 38, was "a magical man" when she first met him at the MTV Movie Awards in 2009, when he very publicly flirted with the singer.
