The La Cañada Flintridge Country Club's golf course is poised to get a makeover. During the 2009 Station fire, water was used to douse flames and the golf course's irrigation system was damaged. Now, the club plans to install a computer-controlled irrigation system. Last week, the club kicked off the renovation with a groundbreaking ceremony. “I look forward to ushering in a new era of golf at La Cañada Flintridge,” Randy Dreyfuss, club president, said in a statement.

Californians pretty much know there’s a water shortage. In order to have enough water available despite the past three years of drought, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger recently asked people across the state to reduce water use by 20% by the year 2020. So, it’s little surprise local agencies have asked residents to consider replacing current landscaping with California native plants that use less water for upkeep, take fewer and shorter showers, water outside landscaping twice a week on approved days only — the various water departments that service the Foothills are specifying which two days for that segment of the city — and use other methods of conserving water.

La Cañada Flintridge residents and businesses, along with their counterparts in neighboring communities, are banned from using outdoor irrigation Thursday through Feb. 28, as the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California upgrades a pipeline that's more than 70 years old. All landscape watering is included in the ban, whether it's delivered by sprinklers, drip systems or hand.

Bill would require sale of houses in 710 path A state assemblyman last month introduced a bill that would require the sale of the hundreds of properties acquired by the state for a surface extension of the Long Beach (710) Freeway. Introduced by Assemblyman Mike Eng (D-Monterey Park), the bill would require the California Department of Transportation to sell the surplus properties and use the proceeds to fund local transportation projects within Los Angeles County. Officials estimate Caltrans owns more than 500 residential properties along the unconstructed portion of the 710 corridor, with some bought more than 50 years ago. If passed, the bill would essentially make the equally controversial proposed underground tunnel the only option for the proposed freeway extension.

Last week’s earthquake in Japan is yet another wakeup call for the Southland. As you read this column think about our situation if the California’s “big one” hit right now. Are you ready? One of the lessons from the earthquake in Japan was that even in Tokyo, 231 miles away from the epicenter, there was a total gridlock of the highways and transportation systems. With everybody trying to leave at once, nobody was able to go anywhere. You can expect that to happen here also.
