SAN MARINO – An ambitious plan to build a sprawling, classical Chinese garden at the renowned Huntington Library is in jeopardy because U.S. immigration officials have denied visas to 13 Chinese stonemasons needed to assemble ornate bridges and pavilions. The artisans were expected to arrive this month to help create the first phase of the 12-acre garden. But the U.S. government refused to grant the Q-1 visas in September because they didn’t consider the project an important cultural exchange program, prompting the Huntington to scramble to rearrange the construction schedule due to the artisans’ absence. “We’ll have to close the project if we can’t get them here,” said Steven Koblik, president of the Huntington Library, Art Collections and Botanical Gardens. A spokeswoman with the Citizenship and Immigration Services bureau declined to comment specifically on the stonemasons’ applications, citing privacy concerns. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The Huntington’s case is an example of an ongoing problem U.S. cultural institutions face in trying to obtain travel visas for foreign artists since the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. Applications for cultural, arts or sports visas have had to pass through more screening due to security concerns. Last year, 1,972 cultural exchange visas were approved, said Laura Tischler, a spokeswoman for the Bureau of Consular Affairs, a division of the State Department. Tischler said she did not know how many applications for the Q-1 visas were rejected, because in many instances the refusals are overturned. “Globally speaking, we issue well over 80 percent of the visa applications received,” she said. When the Portland Classical Chinese Garden underwent construction in 1999, up to 90 Chinese artisans came to Oregon to help build arching bridges and gateways, said the garden’s executive director, Gloria Lee.
Gareth Bale made up for the absence of Cristiano Ronaldo by scoring twice to inspire Real Madrid to come from two goals down and win 3-2 at Rayo Vallecano on Saturday.Real managed to edge to the top of the table despite Ronaldo missing his first league game of the season with a muscle strain although they also suffered another scare before their Champions League semi-final next week with a suspected injury to Karim Benzema.Real had found themselves two behind within 14 minutes as Adrian Embarba scored from close range in the seventh minute before Rayo’s Venezuelan striker Miku pounced on more poor defending from the visitors.Bale started the revival, heading in from a 35th minute corner before Zinedine Zidane’s side drew level six minutes after the break through substitute Lucas Vazquez.Welshman Bale then completed the comeback nine minutes from time, collecting a misplaced pass from a Rayo defender before powering the ball past goalkeeper Juan Carlos.The victory put Real on top of La Liga on 81 points, but title rivals Atletico Madrid and Barcelona could surpass them after playing later on Saturday.Real, who had not lost to Rayo Vallecano since 1997 and had thrashed their city neighbours 10-2 earlier this season, missed Ronaldo, who strained a muscle in the 3-0 win over Villarreal on Wednesday.Still, the visitors nearly got off to a dream start as Bale hit the post in just the second minute, but Rayo soon imposed themselves with former Manchester United player Bebe setting up their first goal.advertisementHe took on Danilo and Pepe before rolling the ball across for Embarba to score from six yards out. Then a weak header from Raphael Varane allowed Miku to pounce.Bale’s header lifted them before the break but Benzema had to be substituted in the 42nd minute with a suspected injury, putting in doubt his chances of facing Manchester City on Tuesday in the Champions League semi-final first leg.The Frenchman was replaced by Vazquez, who headed home Danilo’s cross at the far post and it was Bale who had the final say, intercepting the ball and racing into the box down theleft flank to strike the winner.
