It seems that mothers can always tell when their children are telling a fib. Maybe it's the child's mannerisms, their eyes, or the sound of their voice when a child is not being honest and forthcoming. However the method, a mother knows what's true and what's not. Perhaps gardeners should take a lesson from their maternal relationship. Like the mischievous child, when a gardener tries to fool Mother Nature, they almost always fail. Mother Nature always knows the truth, and, in the end, Mother Nature will always impart her will.

-- Greg Risling Mother Nature wasn't done with Southern California on Tuesday night, dropping more needed rain on Orange County, which has had an uneventful first half of the rainy season. It was just the third time in seven months that the county has seen significant rainfall. Tuesday's totals amounted to about a half-inch of rain from the storm that chugged through the area. There was another .12 of an inch that fell after dark, causing several traffic accidents on Orange County freeways.

Hers is a story of solitude at sea for months on end, with only the raw power of nature to break the silence. She's rowed thousands of miles and survived countless ocean-borne perils, from dehydration to 20-foot waves threatening to capsize her 23-foot vessel. It's no wonder people keep asking Rosalind "Roz" Savage, whose travels will be the subject of a new exhibit at Newport Beach's ExplorOcean museum, if she's read "The Life of Pi . " Unlike the movie, the 45-year-old British adventurer didn't have a tiger to contend with, but Savage has shattered world records and made headlines by rowing three oceans without a chase boat and with only one satellite phone, which she used infrequently to contact land.

Greg Risling NEWPORT BEACH -- It may be November, but it isn't stopping Mother Nature from providing surfers with well-formed waves. For the second day this week, surfers were given an autumn gift in the form of 4- to 6-foot waves. The south-to-southwest swells are expected to last through Saturday at most Southern California beaches. The big, slow rolling waves with long shoulders were evident at several locations off the Newport Beach coast. "Those are the types of waves you can put six to seven people on," said Lt. Jim Turner of the Newport Beach Fire and Marine Department.

A son dies, another paralyzed for life. As parents, as humans, we ache for the families who endure these tragedies. Their lives are changed forever and we understand finding answers, getting justice becomes a mission. Two families are suing Newport Beach for these horrible events in the waters of Newport. The horrible truth is, we can’t stop these tragedies and defend Mother Nature. The city has done its best. The danger signs are posted at every entrance to the beach.

AVIVA GOELMAN November always brings back memories of living back east, watching the leaves on the trees turn from green to a rainbow of reds and ambers and oranges. November and the leaves turning always made me realize that it was time to say goodbye to another summer and welcome the chilled air, the rainy days and the episodes of snow and sleet. A writer whose name is unknown to me once wrote "that the leaves are the messengers of a new season, a new beginning, of new hope, new dreams and being together with those we love, as if Mother Nature's wrapping her arms around and whispering, 'Wake up, look around, I've put on a new dress for you.'" The Costa Mesa Senior Center, like Mother Nature, is putting on a new dress as the seasons change.

It is truly amazing to watch the political process at work. On the front page of the Daily Pilot we read about how the city of Irvine, with the state’s help, is going to skillfully move the Orange County Fairgrounds to the “Great Park.” And, in the middle of the paper, we are reading about how we are trying to give Costa Mesa’s Fairview Park back to an unspecified organization that is going to create the Orange Coast River Park. Did we forget that the city bought Fairview Park from the county back in 1985 to prevent the county from building an RV Park?

Andrew Edwards More rain pounded Newport-Mesa on Tuesday, followed by blue skies and sunshine -- until the next big burst of showers. "It's a pretty strong, cold, unstable storm," National Weather Service forecaster Dan Whitlow said. On land, sporadic downpours drenched the area, while over the Pacific, a waterspout touched down about 2 p.m. Tuesday some 10 miles offshore from Newport Beach, Whitlow said. Waterspouts are tornados that form over water, and the National Weather Service announced a tornado watch along the California coast from San Mateo Point to the Mexican border from 2:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday.
