Cynthia Merritt passed away peacefully at her home May 8 with her husband, George, by her side.

Malibu resident Tova Fagan said jewelry design came to her on her birthday eight years ago in Las Vegas.

“I was celebrating with my family when we walked by a particular shop with a bracelet in the window,” she said.

Almost two decades of research on Cook County, Illinois’ coyotes — estimated to number not one or two, but 1500-2000 — continues to yield astonishing data about the lives and habits of this intelligent, ingenious and seldom seen urban carnivore.

On March 3, Malibu’s historic Adamson House and Museum temporarily closed its doors. California State Parks, which owns and administers the house and museum as part of Malibu Lagoon State Beach, initially announced that “the house tours program, garden tours, and the gift shop would be temporarily closed from March 3 through March 31, 2015.” That deadline passed two weeks ago, and a notice on the Adamson House website that states that the house will be “closed until further notice,” has raised concerns in the community that the closure may become permanent.
