Yes, they're juglans/Dear Howard

Chicken Corner heard yesterday from its Walnut correspondent who provided further infomation on Walnut's walnuts.

Yes, ours are jagluns californica. We have the largest, untouched grove in the state. Wisely, the city keeps them off limits except for one area off of Grand Avenue near Mount San Antonio College. The walnut trees are still visible in Walnut, Diamond Bar, Brea and Chino Hills. The walnuts are usually mixed in with scrub oaks.

Meanwhile, deep in the other heart of the walnut woodlands, it seems all has not been right with the Billy Preston gate situation. Howard Sunkin of the Dodgers received the following "Dear Howard" letter of apology, dated May 30, from Jimmy Price, the chief of the LA parking enforcement and traffic control dept.

Dear Howard. This letter is to address the deployment of Traffic Officers surrounding the neighborhood protection plan on Scott Avenue. lt is our intent to always provide the Constituents of Los Angeles with the best possible service; however, on the weekend of May 25 through May 27, members of my staff failed to communicate which created an undue hardship on the residents of Scott Avenue. We apologize for the inconvenience that the residents had to endure. We have taken the appropriate measures to ensure you that this will not occur again. We value our relationship with the Community and with the Los Angeles Dodgers. We hope to be of continued service to all.

It may have been ugly, but don't blame the Dodgers.
