  • Governor, show our lawns a little respect

    Governor, show our lawns a little respect
    Gov. Jerry Brown apparently wants to turn California's green lawns into the dreary color that matches his name. There's family precedent for that. In his last term as governor 50 years ago, Jerry's father, Pat Brown, repainted the golden dome on the...
  • An ironic drought in California

    The present four-year California drought is not novel -- even if President Barack Obama and California Gov. Jerry Brown have blamed it on man-made climate change. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, California droughts are...
  • Vaccine legislation properly puts public health above personal beliefs

     Vaccine legislation properly puts public health above personal beliefs
    Ask most rational people what their No. 1 priority is and, I suspect, they would answer good health. Love, friends, money, freedom, a good education, a productive life — they're all right up there. But none outranks health. So it's pathetic that...

    Farmers to city dwellers: We're all in the drought together
    As the months have worn on, drier and drier but for the very occasional gift from above, it has been hard to avoid a looming civil war in California over a common enemy, the drought. Loosely, the battle is between ideologically and culturally opposite...
  • The wrong way to think about California water

    The wrong way to think about California water

  • Jerry Brown's latest water woes

    WASHINGTON -- California Gov. Jerry Brown has reason to appreciate the saying that what goes around, comes around. Some 38 years after coping with a massive drought in the Golden State in his first governorship, he's beleaguered again by the same...
  • California Sen. Janet Nguyen's story may have you waving U.S. flag

    California Sen. Janet Nguyen's story may have you waving U.S. flag
    Every time she looks up at California's Capitol dome and walks into the grand old building, says freshman state Sen. Janet Nguyen, "I think to myself, 'Wow!' "I'm one of 40 state senators in California. Never in my entire life did I think I would become...
  • Attitudes shift on illegal immigration, but unity eludes other issues

    Attitudes shift on illegal immigration, but unity eludes other issues
    Times change. Attitudes soften. People get to know each other and chill. Twenty-one years ago, California voters decided overwhelmingly — 59% of them — to deny public services for immigrants who came here illegally. That included refusing to...
  • Trouble(at)clintonemail.com

    It's one of the most popular comic strips of all time: "Peanuts" by Charles M. Schulz. But it wasn't all about Charlie Brown. There were Lucy, Snoopy, Violet, and, my favorite, Pig-Pen -- the little boy who couldn't stay clean. He was always surrounded by...

    Patt Morrison Asks: Alice Waters
    Little bistro, huge impact. Like a different sort of miracle of the five loaves and two fishes, Chez Panisse, the landmark Berkeley restaurant, and its founder and guiding spirit, Alice Waters, have leveraged a small temple of slow, local and organic food...

    Newton: Refighting California's water war
    When Gov. Jerry Brown wrapped up his tenure last time through, he left a huge unresolved question for California: In the wake of a failed 1982 initiative to fund the so-called peripheral canal, how would the state distribute and safeguard its water...
