Andrewbaker they don't grow rice in the San Joaquin Valley. They grow rice in the flood plain of the Sacramento River Delta. They grow cotton, almonds, pistachios, citrus, stone fruit, grapes, and some vegetables in San Joaquin Valley.

On City Customers Not Saving Water During Drought

How about mandating that all new construction and major remodels in California include a cistern to collect rainwater runoff from the roof, a grey water system, and solar panels? After all, if the State can impose indoor sprinkler systems of dubious usefulness for all new structures, why not mandate something that would actually help?
Time to stop hand-wringing and come up with solutions.
Das Williams, are you listening?

On Building Manager, Cops Shut Down Mural Event

"Expecting" decent behavior is not going to solve the problem. Telling them why you expect it, asking them why they are showing such disrespect for themselves and our community, treating them like people with the attendant rights and responsibilities would be more helpful.
We the citizens, not the cops or local officials are going to have to solve this. As for socialism, that has been tried and failed, but letting unfettered market forces turn our kids into indentured servants is clearly not working either. Let's set the labels aside and try to come up with common goals, shall we?

Engage the young. Talk to them, even if it feels uncomfortable. Especially if it feels uncomfortable. They may stink, they may be obnoxious and even a bit scary, but they are our children, and they need adult guidance - along with the occasional firm reminder that you shouldn't defecate where you sleep.

On Police Arrest 'High-Level' Drug Dealer

"For the past year, it turns out, Santa Barbara has found itself without an ordinance enabling it to take action against people who urinate and defecate in public. That’s because local courts began interpreting the laws in such a way that breaking them meant filing misdemeanor charges rather than infractions."
Maybe it is time for said courts to rethink? Call them infractions, let the City Attorney prosecute, and simplify the matter?

As for the YUTs, what do you expect when a college education leaves you with $40,000 in debt that can never be discharged by bankruptcy, and no job?
This society is eating its young. Any wonder they are restless?
