Although it is very cold in Palm Springs, California right now, gardens are in full bloom and citrus trees are laden with fruit. It's a joy to walk around, then go and sit somewhere for some hot coffee or tea, maybe a glass of wine, beside a gas heater that seem so prevalent now in outdoor cafes. Yes, these little heaters are a new phenomena everywhere I seem to go in California. And I'm all for it! Here are some photos I took today, including a cute one of Hummingbirds busily storing up on their energy drink of choice.

After a beautiful drive yesterday that started on a chilly pre-dawn morning in Carmel-by-the-Sea, I arrived in Palm Springs just after Noon at the Arenas Gardens Hotel where I will be staying for a few days. Don't congratulate me yet, there is business involved, still it is a beautiful place to be. Here is a photo that I took this morning of my charming little cottage where Steve and Kass, my hosts here at the 5 unit hotel, have placed me. It's located in the "Tennis Club" district, where movie stars of yesterday cavorted in days of old. The Arenas Gardens Hotel was actually owned by Gloria Swanson. So this week, I will be writing more about Palm Springs, and especially about the "Holiday Walking Tour of the Inns" this Thursday. For more information, click here.

WATER QUALITY Would you drink water from the tap? The Agua Caliente Cahuilla Band of Indians is suing the DWA, believing the DWA has been negligent in protecting the quality of our water. A water quality study conducted by the U.S. Geological Survey found higher levels of contaminants in Coachella Valley aquifers compared to the rest of the State. (Desert Groundwater Dirtier Than Most, Desert Sun, Jan 14, 2013) We cannot sit idly by as the aquifer continues to be depleted and water polluted. The purpose of the DWA is to provide clean, reliable and safe water.   If elected, I will do everything I can to work with the DWA and our shared beliefs, committing to clean, safe, reliable water and to bring cohesion and cooperation, so we can operate as a unified force. Bringing both sides back t...

WATER CONSERVATION   I believe we can do more with a valley-wide regional water conservation plan. Our five water agencies have unique needs throughout the valley, and so do our businesses and homeowners. The Coachella Valley Regional Water Management Group is helping to address our water and planning needs.   I offer a one-stop-shop website where you can find classes, rebates and events that are close to your home: www.CoachellaValleyConservation.com Once I am elected, I would like to have unique programs for water conservation, with these questions in mind: Is city government and planning commissions working closely enough with our water agencies? Can we do more with similar industries working together such as our hotels, restaurants, golf courses and city governments? I also propose ...
