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...
