Around Town: Now, for something totally different

Last week I spent four days in Babylon by the Bay (San Francisco) to celebrate an anniversary and my entry-into-Medicare-birthday. Having spent my college years there during the late ’60s and early ’70s, I am well aware of the far-left leanings of the government and residents in this part of the state. After all our governor, assistant governor, state attorney general and at least one Senator all came out of local bay area politics to prominence.

Around Town: Water war enters Phase 2

Apple Valley Review

At every opportunity, I’ve been encouraging individuals associated with the town and Apple Valley Ranchos to share more information and help educate the rate paying public.

A quarter page ad in the Daily Press, which the town placed, is in part responding to an earlier “white paper” distributed by AVR. There is some verbiage and a chart that compares water rates of all the local cities with both AVR and Golden State Water, our two primary private water companies.
