EDITOR: At the risk of stating the obvious, we are in a severe drought. We don't need the governor to declare it or to read the rainfall totals in the paper. It's obvious. While some of us have been concerned for some time and have taken steps to conserve this precious resource, I still see neighbors watering their lawns and washing their cars.
There are many things each of us can do every day to save water. The Sonoma County Water Agency's website -#8212; scwa.ca.gov -#8212; has some great recommendations on simple ways to conserve. Let's all do our part to lessen the impact of this historic drought.
EDITOR: To me, Pete Seeger was a bodhisattva -#8212; a kind of living saint akin to Nelson Mandela -#8212; who brought incalculable amounts of light and joy over many decades to so many. Seeger was Mensa-level musically gifted, and his sustained determination to work tirelessly for peace and justice was an exemplar for how to keep on carrying on in our beautiful beleaguered world.
I hope that efforts to nominate Pete Seeger for the Nobel Peace Prize are renewed.
