Where did Sierra snow go this spring? Not into California rivers and water supplies

California’s severe drought was made worse this year by a shocking surprise. Every year, much of the drinking water that flows through the taps of millions of Californians begins in the Sierra Nevada. Snow and rain fall on the vast mountain range during the winter months, and the water moves downhill into streams, rivers and reservoirs in the spring and summer. But this year, in a trend that startled water managers, much of that runoff simply vanished. State water planners say that 685,000 acre-...

The best laid plans of mice and legislators

The normal refrain when government undertakes an initiative is, “Your tax dollars at work.” However, the latest episode from Sacramento introduces a new spin: “Your tax dollars are not at work.” The action (or inaction) in question is the state’s delayed implementation of Assembly Bill 841 (2020). That bill redirected untapped money (approximately $500 million) in a ratepayer-funded program to pay for repairs or replacement of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems and plumbin...

School closures were rough for everyone, let’s do better

It’s no secret that the great majority of California students and their parents aren’t happy about anything at all concerning the last 15 months of their education. The shutdowns surely saved lives — but they also made it extremely hard to learn for those who thrive in the classroom environment and were suddenly trapped at home trying to take Zoom classes, a change for which no one was prepared. Only time will tell the long-term deleterious impact the past year and a half has had on California’s...

California’s historic drought is causing drinking water to taste like dirt. Just ‘add lemon,’ officials say

By Rachel Ramirez | CNN Something is off about Sacramento’s water. It smells and tastes a little “earthy,” residents are saying — an effect of compounding climate change crises: extreme heat, little to no precipitation and a historic drought that has gripped the region for the better part of a decade. Up and down the state of California, rivers, streams and reservoirs are drying up. In Sacramento, that has led to an increase in the concentration of geosmin in its drinking water, one of two orga...

Sacramento Gets 9th Pick In NBA Draft Lottery; Detroit Wins Top Spot

Newly selected Basketball Hall of Famer Ben Wallace tapped his fist on the table a few times, then clapped his hands and pointed one finger skyward. After one of the worst seasons in franchise history, Detroit has something to celebrate. The Pistons won the NBA draft lottery on Tuesday night, meaning they’ll have the No. 1 pick on July 29 — and, presumably, the chance to take Oklahoma State guard Cade Cunningham. “We get to add another young player to the restoration process,” Pistons general ma...

State budget process is broken

Well, they’ve done it again. Since the passage of Proposition 25 more than a decade ago, the California Legislature has passed what can only be described as fake budgets. The 2021-22 “budget” passed last week is no exception. Despite the self-congratulatory preening of Democratic leadership, the “on-time” budget is neither on-time nor is it a real budget. The bill laughingly labeled the budget bill (AB 128) is not a true annual spending plan for the state, as it leaves many issues unresolved. An...

Phillies Roll Through Giants 13-6

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Rhys Hoskins broke out of a 2 for 40 slump with a pair of home runs and a career-best six RBIs, leading the Philadelphia Phillies over the San Francisco Giants 13-6 on Saturday. Ronald Torreyes also homered and drove in three runs as the Phillies won at San Francisco for the second time in nine games since 2018. Bryce Harper doubled and scored. Alec Bohm had three of Philadelphia’s 16 hits and had two RBIs. Brandon Belt and Mike Yastrzemski homered for San Francisco. There w...

The California Dream lives despite California’s reality

Tom Motley lives in Denver. He’s been reading and seeing and hearing a lot about California of late, none of it good. He called last week to ask if I thought it was safe for his daughter to move here. I paused before answering. I’ve known Tom since college, so when I say “old friend”, I mean it literally. We’ve known each other so long an outright lie wouldn’t fly. Whatever spin I put on the California Dream (2021 edition) would have to have enough grit to pass the smell test. I scanned my menta...

Kapler Beats Former Team As Giants Defeat Phillies 5-3

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Johnny Cueto struck out five in six uneven innings, Brandon Belt homered and the San Francisco Giants beat the Philadelphia Phillies 5-3 on Friday night. LaMonte Wade Jr. doubled, tripled and drove in two runs as the Giants won in manager Gabe Kapler’s first game against his former team. Kapler was fired in 2019 after two seasons as the Phillies’ manager. San Francisco has won five straight, 17 of 23 and is a majors-best 45-25. “I feel that we’re more united, that we’re gett...

Stop the excuses and pass a police decertification bill

SACRAMENTO – If you’re a Realtor, contractor or insurance agent who engages in serious misbehavior, the state can strip you of the license that allows you to practice your profession. Occupational-licensing rules often are strict. They include “moral turpitude” clauses that deny licenses to those with convictions – even for crimes that have little to do with the specific work license. These rules mostly apply to private-sector workers. But many government employees – especially police officers, ...

Sleep Train Arena To Be Demolished For New Teaching Hospital And Medical School

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — After years of wondering what will fill the old Sleep Train Arena in Natomas, city leaders and the Sacramento Kings have a plan.

Legal corruption in the Golden State

Gov. Gavin Newsom dismissed the idea that there’s any conflict of interest at play when large corporations that lobby the state also happen to donate large sums of money to his wife’s nonprofit organization. That’s nonsense and the governor shouldn’t pretend otherwise. Two weeks ago, the Sacramento Bee reported that The Representation Project, a nonprofit founded by Jennifer Siebel Newsom in 2011, received $800,000 in donations over the years from big companies that routinely lobby the Newsom ad...

Fiona Ma’s prudent assessment of the bullet train

If the United States is ever going to have an extensive high-speed rail system, the nation must learn from California’s missteps and more closely follow the approach taken in Florida when it comes to getting a high-speed rail project done.  That’s basically the message of California Treasurer Fiona Ma in a bluntly written recent letter to Congress. In the letter addressed to the House Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation, Ma emphasizes her strong support for a national bullet train ...

Schwarber Hits 2 HRs, Ross Dominant As Nats Beat Giants 5-0

WASHINGTON (AP) — Kyle Schwarber became the sixth player in the history of the Washington Nationals and Montreal Expos franchise to homer in both the first and second innings, driving in four runs in a 5-0 win over the San Francisco Giants on Sunday. Joe Ross allowed five hits in eight innings as the Nationals gained a four-game split. Schwarber hit his seventh career leadoff homer, his second in as many days, and hit a three-run drive in the second off Johnny Cueto (4-3) for a 4-0 lead. The pit...

California’s charter school war flares up again

When Gavin Newsom succeeded Jerry Brown as California’s governor two years ago, it re-ignited the Capitol’s long-running conflict over charter schools, which receive public funds but operate independently of traditional public school systems. As mayor of Oakland, Brown had founded two charter schools, the Oakland Military Institute and the Oakland School for the Arts, and during his second governorship was protective of the charter alternative. However, the public school establishment, led by th...

Flavored tobacco bans won’t achieve desired outcomes

I support efforts to curb underage tobacco use, but only when they work, and only when they do so without hurting people they are claiming to help. By contrast, Los Angeles councilmembers are expected to introduce a ban on flavored tobacco products on June 16th. I urge the community I have lived and served in to make our voices heard and oppose these efforts, which have been proven to be both ineffective and detrimental to some of our most vulnerable residents. Criminalizing flavored tobacco cre...

Gavin Newsom and Sacramento’s culture of corruption

Sacramento is broken. It’s a culture of corruption so pervasive elected officials are blind to how nakedly this pay-to-play environment operates. They’re equally dismissive of its corrosive effect on public trust. At the center of the most recent example are Gov. Gavin Newsom and his wife, First Partner Jennifer Siebel Newsom. Mrs. Newsom operates a non-profit foundation called The Representation Project. It promotes left-wing political causes and finances documentaries she directs and produces,...

Senate Bill 2 is the wrong way to create a police decertification process

There’s no problem so terrible that the California Legislature cannot find a way to make it worse. That’s the story of Senate Bill 2, a legislative effort to create a process for decertifying problem law enforcement officers. California is one of only four states that doesn’t have a decertification system, and there’s a broad consensus, even among law enforcement unions, that this should be remedied. But leave it to the California Legislature to turn a police reform bill into an open vein that b...

Giants-Nationals Split Saturday Doubleheader

WASHINGTON (AP) — LaMonte Wade Jr. led off the eighth inning with an RBI single that broke a scoreless tie and the San Francisco Giants held on to beat the Washington Nationals 2-1 Saturday to earn a split in the day-night doubleheader. In the opener, Erick Fedde returned after nearly a month on the COVID-19 injured list and pitched five sharp innings in the Nationals’ 2-0 win. The teams combined for five runs in the doubleheader that was scheduled after Thursday’s rainout. Held to just one hit ...

‘Hero pay’ plan spotlights undue union influence

The Culver City council on Monday will consider an ordinance to impose a $5 an hour “hero pay” increase for all hospital workers within the city for the next 120 days. This proposal will spark a lively public discussion about the challenges faced by front-line healthcare workers during the pandemic, but it should also highlight a disturbing political dynamic. In cities throughout our region, public-sector unions engage in backdoor arm-twisting, as they use the legislative process to secure benef...

Everything you need to know about growing an herb garden indoors

If you are an enthusiast of herbs and want to grow them inside your home, “Herbal Houseplants: Grow Beautiful Herbs Indoors!” (Cool Springs Press, 2021) is a book you really cannot do without. By the way, technically speaking, the difference between herbs and spices is that herbs are grown for their foliage, whether fresh or dried, while spices are grown for their dried and generally crushed seeds, bark, flowers or roots. Light is the main limiting factor when it comes to growing herbs indoors s...

Unions ramp up effort to beat back Newsom recall

SACRAMENTO – Analysis of the recall effort of Gov. Gavin Newsom has shifted from questions about whether this special election will take place to when it will happen. Recall supporters seem to have gathered plenty (2.1 million) of signatures to qualify the measure for the ballot, so Democratic Lt. Gov. Eleni Kounalakis will soon get to select a date. As the Mercury News explained, the state Department of Finance had 30 days to estimate the costs of the election, which it completed this week, and...

US will restore $1 billion for California’s troubled bullet train

SACRAMENTO — The federal government has reached an agreement to restore nearly $1 billion in funding for California’s troubled bullet train, Gov. Gavin Newsom announced. The U.S. Department of Transportation finalized settlement negotiations to restore the money for the high-speed rail project that was revoked by the Trump administration in 2019, Newsom said Thursday night. The restoration of $929 million in grant funding “will continue to spur job creation, advance the project and move the stat...

Ever wonder when stations started adding fractions to the price of gas?

Q. Honk: Why is gasoline sold in fractions of a penny when 100% of the people cannot make change for 9/10ths of a cent? Unless you are purchasing in 10-gallon increments, the price is being rounded off. I cannot purchase a gallon of milk using fractions! – Dennis Crane, Costa Mesa A. “It started back in the ’10s, when gas was a nickel,”  said Ed Jacobsen, also know as Jake the Oil Guy, referring, of course, to the last century. “It started with taxes by the different entities.” Gas stations at t...
