Mr. Kitada tends to gardening chores

-A +A
Teruaki “Ted” Kitada got back to tending the Loomis pioneer park last week after visiting in Japan for two weeks. Kitada no longer drives but continues to look after the garden, “Whenever it needs it,” he said. Kitada’s “green thumb” is also evident at Sierra College, where he served as gardener until his retirement in 1994.
