Question: Help. How do you treat macadamia nuts before you can crack them open? We have this beautiful tree and lots of nuts. Answer: Tom Cooper of Rancho Nuez Nursery was kind enough to furnish the following information compiled by the California Macadamia Society: Macadamia nuts should be allowed to drop from the tree naturally. Gather the nuts at least once a week and remove the husks with the aid of a large pair of pliers.

It was a bittersweet ending Monday when about 200 friends of the Los Feliz Theatre showed up to pay tribute on its closing night. The Laemmle family, which brought art and foreign-language films to Los Angeles in the North Vermont Avenue theater, had lost its lease after 40 years. But on Tuesday, it sounded like a new beginning.

There's been a kind of hush over the city for the past three days, the way it gets when everyone's waiting for something to happen. Well, I guess it's happened. By the time you read this, the likelihood is that a verdict has been delivered in what's been called with awesome media arrogance the Trial of the Century. They probably said the same thing about the Fatty Arbuckle murder case and the Errol Flynn rape trial a long time ago. Celebrity peril has always demanded lofty superlatives.
