This song brings back memories. He’s wearing a red Manchester United jersey, navy blue track pants and bright green flip flops. &nbsp;Sixty one year old Garcia is &nbsp;used to having a microphone in front of him, so he begins belting out a medley of his favorite songs. He says that his past was at times, well, unhealthy.</p> Fri, 31 Jan 2014 01:44:59 +0000 Angela Johnston 39072 at http://kalw.org New study aims to promote choir singing for healthy aging Mt. Sutro's eucalyptus trees raise question of how to manage urban forests http://kalw.org/post/mt-sutros-eucalyptus-trees-raise-question-how-manage-urban-forests <p></p><p>On a rare sunny morning on San Francisco’s Mt. Sutro, I went on a hike with Rupa Bose, webmaster of an organization called Save Sutro. Bose lives in the Forest Knolls neighborhood abutting the eucalyptus forest. Though she’s lived in the neighborhood for longer, she started exploring the forest a few years ago.</p><p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">Bose told me that “it was a shock to me that you could come out of a very ordinary San Francisco neighborhood, with houses and cars and step into this forest. It has birds and the wind in the trees. . . It doesn't feel like being in the city at all, it’s simply gorgeous.”</span></p><p> Tue, 06 Aug 2013 22:28:02 +0000 Rai Sue Sussman 31218 at http://kalw.org Mt.
