June 10, 2010: Before Lombard Criminal Disaster
Gardenia C. | MySpace Video
Unauthorized trespassers allowed by the Village of Lombard Police, pulled out roofing and wooden structure beams from the Lombard home owned by Mr. Roberto Hung and Family at 502 S. Westmore-Meyers Road and Washington Boulevard, one block northeast from St. Pius X Catholic Church and School and one block south from Westmore Elementary School during June 18, 2005.
Lombard Police jumped over the existing surrounding fence at the Hung Family's home and destroyed roofing and wooden structures leaving the rubble on the lawn, damaging existing plant borders, and trampling the lawngrass.
Over winter, the Village of Lombard allowed the uncovered roofing damages to deteriorate without assisting the Hung Family as Lombard resident homeowners to repair the criminal disaster and covering up for the unauthorized trespassers in DuPage County, Illinois USA.

We guide you through the most picturesque posies at the New York Botanical Garden’s new exhibition. By Rebecca Dalzell
Enveloping yourself in the humid, fragrant air and riotous colors of a greenhouse in winter is like taking a trip to the tropics without the hassle of hauling to JFK. The New York Botanical Garden’s eighth annual Orchid Show transports visitors to Cuba, transforming the sprawling Victorian conservatory into lush vignettes of Old Havana and the countryside. Designed by Cuban landscape architect Jorge Sanchez, the exhibit features thousands of jaw-dropping orchids set among replicas of some of the country’s iconic buildings and statues. Many of the 300 varieties of orchids found in Cuba are displayed in the NYBG’s Soroa Orchidarium: They’re growing amid palm groves and a rustic veranda in a space modeled after one of that country’s treasured botanical gardens. We asked curator Marc Hachadourian to tell us about a few stunners.
ORCHID FEVER! New York Botanical Garden, Bronx River Pkwy at Fordham Rd, Bronx (718-817-8700, visit nybg.org for hours). Sat 27–Apr 11, $8–$20.
