Your Views: Why is watering OK in some areas?

I would like to thank a certain reader who pointed out that some people are watering their lawns irrespective of the current ban. Thank you extra for stating out that the abuses are being committed in "one of the nicer residential neighborhoods."

Your Views: Find solutions rather than pray for help

Our Views: GREAT plan? Not quite

Tax cuts are like ice cream; we might all like different flavors, but it's all good. Which is why every politician with a hand to shake would love to promise free ice cream to everyone.

Our Views: The Rx for H2O

The time for action in solving the state's water crisis is long past. Now that we are mired in another serious drought that threatens the future of our water supply, it's time not for caution but for serious measures.
