Hi Cynthia, I would gladly help but I don't hear an alarm. Which water company are you talkingRead Moreabou t? It is disturbing to think the water company is unresponsive to it's neighbor. I wonder what the alarm is for and how long it has been used. May I suggest that you drop a note to your neighbors surrounding the plant? If you create a mini petition to present to the water company (and if necessary then the City Counsel) you are more likely to get a remedy.

Great article, or it a short book? A couple of quotes are: 1) “lousy science for distracting Read Morepublic attention from “more serious and more immediate dangers to the planet.” END QUOTE Exactly, this alarmism takes the energy of anyone who is an environmentalist, and detours it, thus actually being a negative. __________________________________________________ 2) "They come to believe models are real and forget they are only models.” 3) "The warming, he says, is not global but local, “making cold places warmer rather than making hot places hotter.” Far from expecting any drastic harmful consequences from these increased temperatures, he says the carbon may well be salubrious — a sign that “the climate is actually improving rather than getting worse,” because carbon acts as an ideal fertilizer promoting forest growth and crop yields. “Most of the evolution of life occurred on a planet substantially warmer than it is now,” he contends, “and substantially richer in carbon dioxide.” 4) "......is still “a relatively cool period in the earth’s history.” __________________________________________________ I recognize Freeman Dyson from my favorite show. "Closer to truth" Which asks the worlds ultimate questions about our universe consciousness, and God.

The Dyson article is interesting. It is also interesting to see what different people take awayRead Morefro m it. "Asymmetry" thinks Dyson "does not believe there is any scientific merit on global warming". I can present quotes from that same article which paint a different picture: ------------------------------------------ "Dyson agrees with the prevailing view that there are rapidly rising carbon-dioxide levels in the atmosphere caused by human activity"------------------------------------------------------------ " Dyson calls ocean acidification, which many scientists say is destroying the saltwater food chain, a genuine but probably exaggerated problem. Sea levels, he says, are rising steadily, but why this is and what dangers it might portend “cannot be predicted until we know much more about its causes.”------------ Coal, Dyson says, contains “real pollutants” like soot, sulphur and nitrogen oxides, “really nasty stuff that makes people sick and looks ugly.” These are “rightly considered a moral evil,” he says, but they “can be reduced to low levels by scrubbers at an affordable cost.” ------------------------------------ “It’s always possible Hansen could turn out to be right,” he says of the climate scientist. “If what he says were obviously wrong, he wouldn’t have achieved what he has."

Hey Steve, You are the only one in the whole country that can read something clearly, logicallyRead Moredeba te, and put up a challenge that I have to think about. I am certainly no expert. But everyone else throw up trash, one line sound bites, and insults, and no one learns anything. I don't know if you are aware, I am much more clear about the points than a year ago. Perhaps the most important point I learned is that all the computer models use the 3 x factor for water vapor without empirical evidence. Everything is a projection using the same idea. I am more sure that almost no one from either side knows anything about it. If you are interested this is a great vid...as I found the link, I see it also has many more I never knew about. I only watched my Favorite so far, "JONOVA". ( http://topher.com.au/50-to-1-video-project/#prettyPhoto )

I knew Steve knows everything! But Steve...I, as another person who has not paid any attention toRead Moreth e ATC, have not heard about the functioning of the members, and the public. What does the All Saints Church in Pasadena have to do with anything is Altadena? And if you could....Can you clue us to what "representing themselves" has manifested into?

Clearly on Altadena Patch, anyone can post any comment they like; whether based on fact, innuendo,Read Moreo r whole fiction. Doing so, however does not make it right - nor does it help others. Especially in a small community. The Altadena Town Council will change and morph based on community interest. If citizenry wants the council to take action on the community's behave, it may require a change of members to effectuate that change - should sitting members be non-responsive. Whining and casting aspersions accomplishes nothing. An armchair quarterback yelling at the television set never changed one football game. The Altadena Town Council hasn't done anything nefarious, this isn't the community of Bell. The thing they may be guilty of is self-interest, not of the bribery variety - but looking after projects they think are important to the exclusion of others. Also, citizens should realize that bringing up an issue at any town council for the first time, may not be the best political strategy to getting an issue looked at. Most lobbyists and savvy political strategist's know - you may need to meet with a council member beforehand, explain the problem, or send a issue paper, prior to raising the topic at a meeting. Politics requires strategy and learning how best to effectuate change.

Just finished cleaning out our garage. We used the 4 pile approach. Keep, sell, donate/give away,Read Moret rash. Some of you may need the "I do not know pile?" These are things that you are unsure of what to do with it. To handle that situation label the box and put a date on it 3 months out. When that times comes check it again and if you have not needed or wanted it get rid of it. Good luck.

It's a landlord/tenant dispute/problem stemming from the rear house at that location. The tenantRead Morefi nally relinquished the house placing their things out front, my guess is it was done at the request of the landlord because the landlord has also placed items in the front. Both the Dept. of Public Works and the Sheriff were called. I plan on making more calls tomorrow.

Linda, that's a real shame you went elsewhere to shop after my father-in-law's corporation made the Read Moredecision to split up the stores to facilitate his retirement. That was the "issue" of "family matters". This decision was made with great deliberation, and it had to be done to save the pharmacy, and lighten its financial load. It's very unfortunate that the management at the time offered no information about the changes to our customer base. If they had, the transition would've gone so much better! I'm very sorry that you feel that our new store on Fair Oaks Ave. will not be a "place you would frequent". I wonder how you know that already? That's a sad testament, for sure.
