A Southern California couple who scaled back
watering their lawn amid the state s ongoing drought
received a warning from the suburb where they live
that they might be fined for creating an eyesore---
despite emergency statewide orders to conserve.
Michael Korte and Laura Whitney, who live near
Los Angeles in Glendora, said yesterday that they
received a letter from the city s code enforcement
department warning them that they had 60 days to
green up their partially brown lawn or pay a fine
ranging from $100 to $500.
"I don t think it s right for us to start pouring
water into our lawn in the middle of July during a
drought," said Whitney. "We re kind of in a quandary
about what to do."
The letter, bearing the official symbols of Glendora
and its police department, came in the same week
that statewide water regulators passed emergency
drought restrictions for outdoor water use. Those
regulations, to take effect this August, require cities
to demand cutbacks in water use, and empower them
to fine residents up to $500 for overwatering their
California is in the third year of an extreme drought
that is expected to cost the state an estimated $2.2
billion and more than 17,000 agricultural jobs. Dem-
ocratic Governor Jerry Brown declared a drought
emergency in January.
In Glendora, City Manager Chris Jeffers said the
city does encourage conservation, but that Korte and
Whitney s lawn was in such bad shape that it was
reported as possibly abandoned.
"We were responding to a complaint that we
received of a possible abandoned property," Jeffers
said. "Crews visited and determine it was not aban-
doned, but not kept. The landscape was dead and
there were large areas of just dirt."
Instead of citing the couple then and there, he
said, officials opted to leave a letter explaining that
conserving water did not mean abandoning the land-
scape. "Conservation does not mean neighborhoods
need to deteriorate because property owners want
(the) landscape to die or go unmaintained," he said.
Russian President Vladimir Putin yesterday
denied reports that Russia plans to reopen a Sovi-
et-era base in Cuba from which it once spied on
the United States.
A Russian security source said on Wednesday that
Russia had reached a provisional agreement with
Cuba to reopen the Lourdes listening post, which
Putin closed in 2001. The source repeated the contents
of a report that first appeared in the Russian daily
But speaking from Brasilia, the latest stop on a
Latin American tour and site of a summit of BRICS
emerging market leaders, Putin denied the report
and said Russia had no plans to resume the Lourdes
signals intelligence facility.
"Russia is capable of fulfilling the defence capacity
tasks without this component (Lourdes)," he said in
comments carried by Russia s Itar-Tass news agency.
