California cities issue warnings about brown lawns even while state encourages saving
LOS ANGELES — Laura Whitney and her husband, Michael Korte, don't know whether they're being good citizens during a drought or scofflaws.
On the same day the state approved mandatory outdoor watering restrictions with the threat of $500 fines, the Southern California couple received a
letter from their city threatening a $500 penalty for not watering their brown lawn.
"My friends in Los Angeles got these letters warning they could be fined if they water, and I got a letter warning that I could be fined for not
watering," Whitney said. "I felt like I was in an alternate universe."
First of all, why would the Star Tribune use the word "encourage" when the state is fining people $500? Thats not "encouraging", thats using force or
Government could actually use the power of the pulpit, make speeches and actually encourage people to do just that, conserve water usage but thats not
Anyway, government is at it again. Dont these scum bags have anything better to do than worry about robbing people to the tune of $500 over their OWN
Theres just way too much government.
These losers need to get a real job, do something with your lives, go help some lepers, anything. Leave us alone g-dammit.
