    Ted stated...These legal screws that are being turned are only the small progressions toward stealing the water legally.

    Ted... interesting post. You sound knowledgeable in this water issue. I would love to see you submit a letter that articulated the progressions you have observed and what could be done to prevent this water grab. I really am uneducated on this and have not followed as you have. Would be nice to see all the dots connected.

    Now I sorta understand why the street sweeper sweeps perfectly clean streets. Typical gubment boondoggle.
    As long as folks are allowed to park vehicles at the curb on sweeper day-- the sweeper program is a total waste of resources.

    The state still doesn't get it. They are living in the perfect financially irresponsible world where money is no object and being politically correct with the -environment the most important thing to consider - using it as an excuse to be a able to take Northern Cal's water and send it south ruining the way of life north for cheaper water south and soaking us with the bill. Current Peripheral Canal talk says it will create jobs. It doesn't mention the jobs and thousands of acres of farmland that are lost because of it. These legal screws that are being turned are only the small progressions toward stealing the water legally. It's time the people stand up and say "No thank you" and refuse to cooperate.

    Under the proposed new permit, the city would have to pay an additional $1 million a year to comply with the requirements, city spokesman Jeff Hood said

    Good news!! More regulations... more expense and compliance. Exactly what California needs to attract businesses to California. I am very happy Meg Witman, who promised a better business environment was not elected. I cannot wait for the next mandate and how much it will cost.
