The Christmas flower - The Hutchinson News

Aztecs used the plants to make a reddish-purple ceremonial dye and utilized the sap from the plants as a fever reducer. Montezuma, the last Aztec ruler, even had the plants delivered to him by caravan because they would not grow in the high altitude of Mexico City.The Nov. 25 issue of the Hutch News featured a Sandra Milburn photographic spread of poinsettias. Poinsettias are the best-selling potted plant in the U.S. and Canada, accounting for more than $250 million in annual sales, mostly in the weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Although there are over 100 shades and colors of poinsettias, my personal favorite is still the bright crimson one.That color ties in with one of my favorite legends about poinsettias and their association with Christmas. In 16th century Mexico, a poor peasant girl named Pepita wanted to take a gift to the Christ Child to celebrate his birthday. Having no money, she gathered some weeds from a ditch, fashioned a small bouquet and placed them in front of the crib on Christmas Eve. That evening the scraggly bouquet of weeds burst into brilliant red blooms. All who saw them were convinced they had witnessed a Christmas miracle. In Mexico and Guatemala, poinsettias are referred to Flores de Noche Buena, or Flowers of the Holy Night.Beginning in the 17th century, Franciscan friars in Mexico included poinsettias in their Christmas celebrations. The star-shaped leaf pattern is said to remind people of the Star of Bethlehem, while the red color represents the blood sacrifice of Christ’s crucifixion.Poinsettias might have remained south of the border ...

March blooms bring Flowergeddon to tiny Borrego Springs

Flowers are in full bloom all over the desert park and are easy to find.Just driving into Borrego Springs down Montezuma Valley Road, brilliant colors can be seen around every bend. There are places in the northern part of town where vast fields of flowers are blooming — and where cars filled with tourists are lining the sides of usually desolate roads.“I grew up in San Diego, but this is my first time here,” Linda Anderson of La Mesa said Wednesday as she stood in a huge flower field north of Henderson Canyon Road. “I could not have imagined it. The desert is generally rugged and raw and rough, but this is so delicate and gentle. The contrast is just spectacular.”Anderson was among many who made the mid-week trip, hoping to avoid the worst of the traffic.Roughly 15 miles to the west and up the hill from the valley floor in Ranchita, 32 cars passed the lone general store there between 8:16 and 8:21 a.m. Wednesday heading toward Borrego Springs along County Road S-22. Every car had at least two people inside and most had three or four. Most of the people were older, and all looked to be dressed for a day of flower hunting.And they were running late.An hour earlier, the large parking lot at the state park’s visitor center had already filled and rangers had closed the road leading there.And in front of the Anza-Borrego Foundation’s state park store, a crowd of 50 waited for the doors to open at 9 a.m. so they could get maps and directions. The crowds kept pouring in all morning“We’ve never been here before, what should we do?” asked Tracy Trousat of Hemet, a question repeated all day hundred of times to the overworked staff.Still, that was nothing compared to last weekend.Sheriff’s Sgt. Brian Jenkins said traffic was backed up 20 miles getting into Borrego Springs on Saturday morning. Some said it took four hours to drive the 25 miles from downtown Borrego to Route 79 near Lake Henshaw Sunday afternoon.The influx has been tough on the tiny town of Borrego Springs, which is home to only about 1,500 year-round residents. During the winter — when snowbirds arrive — the population can swell to 10,000 or more.Painter, the sheriff’s deputy, said property owners have complained about visitors dumping trash in their yards. Fruit has been stolen from citrus ranches and some people have used the groves to go to the bathroom.The Sheriff’s Department has budgeted for two more deputies and a sergeant to be in town for the next two weekends and the CHP has said it will send two additional units for badly needed traffic control.“The roads out here are not designed for this,” Painter said.Meanwhile, most Borrego business owners are feeling a mixture of exhilaration and exhaustion.“It’s been great for sales,” said Ben Nourse, co-owner of Borrego Outfitters in The Mall. “Thi...

Honey Bees: ASU Researchers' Study May Help Improve Lifespan

Bella Donna, beekeeper and holistic health care specialist for BHappy BHealthy in Lake Montezuma, said the best thing for bees would be to keep them away from humans and agricultural areas. Allowing them to live naturally would provide a wider range of plants for bees to pollinate. Honey bees are not a lost cause, Wang said. There is still hope for their colonies to grow, and he’s already seeing an improvement. “The effort of the scientists and beekeepers to understand bees and save bees have resulted in significant enhancement of honey bee health by improving bee management practices,” Wang said.

Actually the food of love is food

Chocolate traveled a long way from the days when the baffled conquistadors watched breathless maidens serve Montezuma a cup of this unsweetened, spicy, muddy concoction that was meant to give him almost magical powers over whichever of his servers he chose to spend the evening with. The Spaniards could not see what the big deal was, and chocolate did not attract the buzz of Europe until sweetness was added to it. But then, oh boy, did it catch on. Montezuma was a latecomer to the connoisseurship of drinking chocolate. (For some reason the Mesoamericans never made candy or snacks from chocolate, only drinks.)  The Aztecs, who gave us the Nahuatl words for both cacao and chocolate, via Spanish, were not able to cultivate cacao themselves, but instead demanded a “tribute” of harvested cocoa beans from other nations they had conquered. Before them, the Mayans, at the height of their civilization and having a written language, recorded that cacao... (Southside Pride)

SDSU's Aztec Warrior wins mascot wars

Here is a look at the man behind the shield. Warrior 101 The Aztec Warrior mascot you see today made his official debut in 2004. He replaced Monty Montezuma, a cartoony figure who was sent to the big stadium in the sky after student groups complained that he demeaned the Aztec culture. The Warrior’s ensemble was designed by SDSU professor Holly Durbin with historical accuracy in mind, although allowances were made for comfort and wardrobe malfunctions. Which is why the Warrior wears Teva sports sandals on his feet and undergarments beneath his loincloth. Richard Guzman looks in a mirror as he puts on the headdress while getting ready to be the SDSU Aztec Warrior. Hayne Palmour IV Richard Guzman looks in a mirror as he puts on the headdress while getting ready to be the SDSU Aztec Warrior. Share Photo Even with the modesty tweaks, the Warrior uniform — which is never referred to as a costume — is not for the faint of heart or squishy of stomach. “For long stretches of time, I was doing two-hour weight-lifting sessions four to five days a week. As much as I wanted to lose weight, I didn’t want to lose size, either,” said Mike Lopez, who was the Warrior from 2008 to 2011. “I wouldn’t say I didn’t eat anything, but my diet was really strict. Tuna and egg whites were pretty much all I ate.” Meet the newbie The first time Richard Guzman saw the Aztec Warrior, he thought, “I want to be that guy.” And when it came time to find a new Warrior last year, the people in charge of the search saw Guzman and thought, “You are that guy.” A product of the Inland Empire (Chino Hills and Fontana), the compact Guzman was a high-school athlete (football, basketball, wrestling and track) who found his way to cheerleading and stayed there. He was a member of the SDSU cheer squad when the Warrior job opened up, which was one of the things that made him the right guy for a uniquely demanding job. “There are a couple of things we look for, and ‘look’ is a key word,” said Steve Schnall, SDSU’s executive associate athletic director. “You certainly have to have a certain amount of muscularity, and there is a spirit component where you need to engage with fans in a very positive way. It is certainly intimidating to anyone, knowing that you will be walking around with not much clothes on and have everyone looking at you. It can take awhile to get comfortable.” Richard Guzman does pushups before the Aztecs basketball game. Hayne Palmour IV Richard Guzman does pushups before ... (The San Diego Union-Tribune)
