State exceeds conservation mandate

Tuesday, Sept. 1, 2015 — Despite continued hot conditions, Californians surpassed June’s conservation rate and reduced water use by 31.3 percent during July, exceeding Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr.’s 25-percent mandate for a second consecutive month since the new emergency conservation regulation took effect.
    For June and July, the cumulative statewide savings was 29.5 percent. Saving water in the hot summer months is critical to meeting the state’s overall 25-percent savings goal through February 2016, as the summer is when the greatest amount of water is traditionally used, particularly on outdoor ornamental landscapes. State officials urged residential water users to keep up their efforts to conserve.

Constituents tell LaMalfa they want to see results

Tuesday, Sept. 1, 2015 — District 1 Congressman Doug LaMalfa met with a small but feisty group of constituents during a town hall meeting Monday, Aug. 24 at Jensen Hall.
    An estimated 50 mostly conservative residents attended the meeting — some Republicans, Tea Party supporters, a couple sporting Oath Keepers garb and at least one Democrat.
    The constituents complained about the do-nothing Congress, the passage of the Affordable Care Act, ISIS, government shutdowns, the “almost daily” erosion of citizens’ constitutional rights, cloud seeding by Pacific Gas and Electric, the problems with the Veterans Administration, Republican leadership in both the House and the Senate, President Barack Obama’s non-impeachment, why there are two Republican candidates now running for president who, like Obama, are not American citizens, the media’s influence in politically correct speech, anchor babies, the $15-per-hour minimum wage and gay marriage.

City beats state’s water conservation numbers, falls short of expectations

Tuesday, Sept. 1, 2015 — Water conservation efforts statewide resulted in a 31.3-percent reduction in water usage for the month of July, exceeding the state’s overall 25-percent mandate, according to a recent release from the State Water Resources Control Board.
    Dan Newton, the city of Susanville’s public works director, said the city reduced its water usage for July by approximately 32.5 percent compared to usage in July 2013 — narrowly beating the state’s conservation numbers but falling a little short of the 35-percent usage reduction rate imposed upon the city by the state.
