Let's all remember that we live in a desert!

Deserts should not have green lawns everywhere or "plush gardens". Glendora, along with other cities, should start by requiring all new businesses and new homes to put in desert landscaping. I was very disappointed to see the new Costco and their so called landscaping. What a waste of water, recycled or not.

Change in my opinion should start at the top. If the residents see that the city is serious and making changes, they just might follow the example being set. How many times have you driven down the street and had the center divider sprinklers get your car wet? The city needs to clean up there own backyard first.

As for me, I don't have a lawn. We are working on a desert landscape that includes drought tolerant plants and lots of rocks. No gardener, no complaining husband and a lower water bill.

What a crock! If the city council would stop approving more building startups we wouldn't have a water problem. Hey here's a thought: there is only so much water to go aroung in each city in so. cal. Limit growth and you will curb the need for cutbacks. But nooooooooooo... councilmembers love more residents so they can tax the daylights out of them-sounds like California in general.

To bad the Glendora City Council members can't see any further than their own noses.

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger proposed that he would like to see such a proposal come out of a commission now studying an overhaul of the state’s tax system, he hoped the commission would not be afraid to propose something like “a 15% straight tax.

The current system, based on highly unstable income tax revenue that fluctuates with the economy, doesn’t work.

Advocates of a flat tax, which applies a single tax rate to all income, say it increases compliance with the tax codes because it is so simple and easy to understand. But opponents dislike that it taxes the wealthy at the same rates as the poor.

Hmmmm, the day that I am putting a bucket in my shower to collect water as it heats up, or I reduce myself to flushing once a day won't be happening anytime soon. The thought of my plush Glendora lawn browning or my Cannibis plants drying up just can't happen .... now where is my magic wand?

Some of the so called leader's of Glendora, California have once again been wrong.

Since they claim to be RNC, GOP, Republican and Tea Party member's they of course don't believe in SCIENCE nor sea level raising or Global Weather Pattern's that are changing.

That's the problem with these ignorant people on the city council and city hall.

For the first time since written weather history began in Arkansas (1819), snow has fallen in the month of May. This snow has set records for the latest snowfall and latest measurable snowfall in the state.
