Times are tough and the pickings are slim for summer jobs. That’s one excuse, I suppose, that could be used by the group of young men who stole a car in Pasadena and drove it across the Arroyo earlier this week to see if they could score some items out of cars parked on streets and driveways here. According to our story by Mary O’Keefe ("Unlocked vehicles attract thieves"), our young visiting opportunists were aided and abetted by about 30 locals who didn’t lock their vehicles before retiring for the night.

Water rate increase unfair to big families The Crescenta Valley Water District Board of Directors is holding a public forum Dec. 4 to discuss a water rate increase. As in the past, the staff will propose a tiered water rate structure, which will unfairly penalize households with families of more than four members and people with larger than average properties. At past forums, members of the CVWD Board have called customers who use more than the minimum baseline of water “water wasters.

In reading the Mailbag section in last week's Valley Sun it appears that I am not the only person who thinks bribing certain favored voters to vote yes for the parcel tax is voter fraud and illegal. Why not just stuff the ballot box? (Come to think of it; there will be no ballot box. The voter fraud possibility is enhanced since mail-in ballots will be used). A property owner 65 years or older is exempt from paying the $450 tax. The 65 years and older people can vote to raise everyone else's taxes while being exempt from having to pay the tax. Only those that are forced to pay the tax should be allowed to vote for or against the tax in a fair and nonpartisan election.

Water is on most everyone’s mind these days as water rates increase due to water shortages up and down the state. And, with the week of high temperatures and dry conditions a lot of people are concerned with keeping their lawns green and their sprinklers or pool supplied with enough water to beat the heat. As conserving water becomes increasingly vital, officials at Foothill Municipal Water District have devised a way for residents to become more involved with conserving the area’s valuable resource.

An alert system designed to stave off summer water shortages appears to be working, as local water agencies report a single-digit reduction in water usage despite recent heat spells. Local water companies reported an average 3- to 4-percent drop in water usage in the past two months when compared to the same period last year, local water officials said. Officials say the drop is due in part to the Water Conservation Alert System, a color-coded system implemented in late June that signals to residents suggested steps for conserving water.
