WALNUT CREEK, Calif. -- In a country where there are hundreds of credit cards to choose from, picking one that best suits your financial needs and lifestyle is no easy task. There are cards that offer rewards, cards that tout low interest rates and cards that have no annual fees. January is a busy month when it comes to applications sent out by credit card issuers. That's not surprising, given that many people who used their credit cards heavily in December for holiday shopping may be in the market for a new one. "We've heard that from card issuers, and we've seen that in our business," said Bill Hardekopf, chief executive officer of lowcards.

Pansies don't deserve the name. They are tough little plants that go into the ground just when their fragile sisters are coming out. Pansies bloom in the cold of winter, putting out new buds even as the other flowers freeze. They will sleep under the snow, and be ready to go again in the spring. Only the heat of summer defeats pansies. Pansies have been planted in the South for generations. "But they have crept further north every year," said Cort Smith, a member of the family that owns Walnut Creek Nursery, a wholesaler in Howard County.

William C. Reeves, 87, a leading authority on the spread and control of mosquito-borne diseases like West Nile virus, died Sunday at a hospital in Walnut Creek, Calif., from complications after a fall. Dr. Reeves and a fellow scientist at the University of California, Berkeley, William M. Hammon, helped lead the research team that in 1941 isolated both western equine and St. Louis encephalitis viruses from a species of mosquito called Culex tarsalis. That discovery helped public health officials target a virus that afflicted the western United States throughout the 1930s.
