Well, it's been until 10pm or later most of the last six years. I didn't go there last year. TheirRead More phone number is supposedly 818-374-5650, so I'd call them and see if they can confirm or disavow staying until 10 or midnight anymore.

Yes folks. Keep paying your taxes and voting. You can see how well that formula has worked for usRead More in the past. I might even toss in a tip for Uncle Sam this year and ask him to apply it to more foreign aid. I heard that Ukraine needs some bailout money. Either that or give it to a to a too big to fail bank so that they can pay this year's executive bonuses. Six of one, half dozen of the other.

The MWD will spend millions to let you know there's a drought in California. Photo Credit: Getty.

Here we go again! Millions spent for publicity that will be reimbursed by the consumer. Rates willRead More be increased in order to influence more conservative use of domestic water. When consumers do succeed in reducing water consumption the Water companies will cry to the PUC to allow them to increase rates again because of loss of revenue caused by reduced consumption. History does repeat itself and the consumers don't learn!

Plus they want you to use less water so that the developers can continue their building projects. IfRead More we don't have enough for the present population why are they inducing more growth?

As long as we have money grabbing politicians, city councilmen, etc. etc. our problems will continueRead More to grow. The city government in San Juan are into it just for the money, they can care less about our city and the people. They have other issues they need to take care of. Traffic issues downtown are crazy, even dangerous. I sat at Del Obispo and Alipaz going towards town on Del Obispo, the traffic back up was horrible, especially when the train signal turns red at the tracks and you sit and sit while people are blocking intersections, making illegal uturns because they cant handle the gridlock. What is crazy is the cross traffic going west bound on Alipaz is only 2-3 cars yet we sit forever at the red light. Yep, this is our city council at it's best. JOKE
The recent rains in Southern California didn't make much dent in the current drought, water experts said. Patch file photo.

Of coarse the rain was meaningless. How would our left leaning State pass another big water rateRead More increase or another Bond issue for Billions of tax payers money if you puppets did not lay the ground work. Bob Sutton

let's build more houses and more industrial/commercial properties and worry about the water later.

As they make it more difficult to live outside the urban area, cut off water to farms, the buildingRead More will be more centralized.....Agenda 21. Cutting off water to outside areas is in the framework.....

Ace - We have done that, now you are seeing the consequences.

Assuming there are sufficient land parcels that are readily avaiblable, rerouting the traffic toRead More pass north of the city would be a possibility, albeit an expensive solution. Limiting truck traffic to certain hours of the day might be simpler, thereby diverting some of it to the 101 or the 126, which of course will have impact on them as well, perhaps generate some opposition. An indept comprehensive study needs to be done before implementation, including environmental issues .

On any given day Moorpark will have over 500 Trucks travel through their town. Route 23 isn't aRead More Highway or a Bypass for Large Commercial Truck's. ( We have more Accident in Moorpark due to these Large Trucks at Grimes Canyon or just pass Hitch on the 23.) Moorpark Council / Moorpark Chamber or Moorpark City needs to put their Foot down on this one and Stop or Limit the Truck Traffic in and around this town. The reason why the trucks travel through Moorpark we don't have enough Weight Scale for Truck outside of this City.

Please publish a map of this proposed route, so we can see just what your plan ism that would sureRead More help.

There will also be a decrease in holiday spending this year because federal employees and affiliatedRead More business people will be cutting costs in case of a shutdown in January. How many restaurants, stores, childcare facilities, and other businesses depend on the parks or the federal offices? These were the people hit even harder by the shutdown than the federal employees. Federal employees may have lost 13 days of work, but something like a childcare facility with 5 employees would have lost 65 days of work. So if the spending goes down this holiday season, you may see retail shops going out of business -- many stores depend on the holiday shoppers to make up their end-of-year balance sheets. What if large chains like Kohl's, Sears, Macy's, JC Penny's, Barnes & Noble goes out of business due to poor sales? Or even restaurants like Marie Callendar's? Then you have even more unemployment caused by a government shutdown that hasn't even happened yet!
