• This coming Earth Day, architecture buffs are in for a Greene and Greene (and green) treat. On Sunday, April 22, 2012, The Gamble House will present Arroyo’s Edge: Greene and Greene Interiors 2012, a rare opportunity to visit six privately-owned properties designed by Charles and Henry Greene between 1902 and 1915. Featuring acclaimed architectural features and design by the masters of the American Arts & Crafts movement, the five private homes and one private garden will be open for touring along Arroyo Terrace and North Grand Avenue in Pasadena, all within easy walking distance of The Gamble House.

    It has been twenty years since a “Greene and Greene Interiors” tour featured the interiors of houses in the historic Park Place neighborhood. On April 22 from 12 noon to 5 p.m. (last entry 4 p.m.), this remarkably intact enclave of the Greenes’ work – once known as “Little Switzerland” for its woodsy, chalet-style structures – will once again be the focus of a tour to benefit The Gamble House, a National Historic Landmark designed by Greene and Greene in 1908 and operated by the University of Southern California School of Architecture as a public site since 1966.

    Thanks to the generosity of six property owners, the Arroyo’s Edge tour will feature: the Duncan-Irwin house (1906-08), the Mary Ranney house (1907), the F. W. Hawks house (1906), the Van Rossem-Neill house (1903-06), the Louise T. Halstead house (1905-15) and the James Culbertson garden (1902-14), and will give participants a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see Greene and Greene interiors that are rarely, if ever, opened to the public.

    LOS ANGELES (CNS) – The California Supreme Court refused today to review
    the case against a man convicted of murdering three people in two separate
    crimes within an hour in the San Gabriel Valley nearly 15 years ago.
    Juan Uitz was convicted of three counts of first-degree murder for the
    Dec. 29, 1997, slayings of Shen Lee, 54, and her son, Rick, 22, who were shot
    to death during a robbery at their Rosemead home, and Linda Hesse, 32, who was
    shot in the head less than an hour later through the windshield of her car in
    Monterey Park.
    Jurors found true the special circumstance allegations of multiple
    murders and murder during the commission of a robbery involving the Lees.
    The murders were connected in 2001, when investigators determined that
    all three bullet fragments from the crimes were fired from the same gun.
    Uitz was arrested in May 2004 and sentenced in May 2010 to three life
    prison terms without the possibility of parole plus 30 years.
    Last December, a three-justice panel from California’s 2nd District
    Court of Appeal rejected Uitz’s claim that there were errors in his trial in
    Pasadena Superior Court.

    LOS ANGELES (CNS) -Los Angeles County will need to spend an estimated
    $283 million over a five-year period to convert paper healthcare records to
    electronic ones, the director of the county’s hospital system said today.
    The shift from paper to digital records is required under the Affordable
    Care Act and is ultimately expected to improve care and save money.

    About $100 million of the conversion cost is expected to come from
    federal incentives. The county is hoping to fund its share through long- and
    short-term borrowing, which is expected to cost about $30 million in annual
    principal and interest payments, according to Department of Health Services
    Director Dr. Mitchell Katz.
    That $30 million amounts to “a relatively small variance’ within the
    department’s estimated $3.6 billion budget, Katz said.
    Katz presented his updated budget forecast for 2012-13 to the board
    today. Though he cautioned that the numbers were still preliminary, they
    anticipate a $73.4 million shortfall, due in large part to rising contributions
    required to fund employee retirement accounts.
    Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky said the department used to anticipate
    deficits in the hundreds of millions of dollars and he would be pleased if
    Katz’ estimates held.
    Katz responded that he was confident the budget could ultimately be
    balanced without service cuts. The department should end this fiscal year with
    a surplus of $9.6 million.
    One solution to next year’s deficit could be an increase in rates
    charged to the state to offset the cost of in-home care for the elderly. That
    could generate an estimated $54 million in revenue.
    Another option under discussion is amending a waiver that governs
    reimbursements under the federal Medicare and Medicaid system for individuals
    covered by the Ryan White HIV-AIDS Program. As those patients transition into
    coverage newly available under Healthy Way L.A., payments under an amended
    waiver could be worth as much as $43 million.
    The proposed waiver amendment is pending approval by the federal Centers
    for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
    Given the amount of money at stake, Yaroslavsky asked that the issue be
    added to the board’s agenda for May meetings in Washington, D.C.
