Customers of the Mesa Consolidated Water District will get their last chance to discuss a possible rate increase at a meeting of the agency's board of directors Thursday at 7 p.m. The board has been considering a rate increase to make up for an anticipated $623,000 shortfall in next year's budget, caused by a combination of rising water prices and needed improvement projects.

The latest storms that were expected to hit San Diego County today have shifted and are now forecast to bring wind and rain Thursday, leaving the county's roadways dry for New Year's Eve travelers. Weekend storms that put a damper on post-holiday shopping at uncovered malls brought .92 inches of much-needed rain, raising the season's total to 2.97 inches, National Weather Service meteorologist Gordon Hepburn said. Last year at this time, San Diego had received 1.25 inches.

Even before the state's current drought, it was clear that the easy sources of additional water to support growth were tapped out. With that came an awareness that conserving may be the best way to find "new" sources of water. Now the state's urban water agencies, which have a long history of infighting, are joining in a pioneering conservation pact aimed at saving enough water to meet the needs of several million people a year. The plan marks a new era of water politics in California.

One of the nation's largest health-care foundations said Tuesday it is exploring the construction of a new 100,000-square-foot headquarters complex in downtown Los Angeles near historic Union Station. The Woodland Hills-based California Endowment, which is backed with $3.7 billion in assets, said it is also considering leasing existing downtown office space as an alternative to building a new, $30-million structure on the grounds of Union Station.

She also wants to spend more time with her family.

With a drought extending into a fourth year, the Los Angeles Basin's four major municipal utilities have emphasized saving water more than conserving power in recent years. "We think conservation is important, and we work hard at it," said Walter Hoye, director of water engineering for the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power. "We are very concerned about getting that snowpack built up this winter."

What is Ormond Beach? Nestled in the industrial and agricultural landscape of south Oxnard, it lies as an environmental uncut jewel. A Southern California Edison generating station, Oxnard's waste-water treatment plant and numerous light and heavy industrial businesses share that landscape. But Ormond Beach continues to be a blend of ocean, coastal wetlands, fore dunes and uplands, unique to our coastline. Development pressures have not disrupted the workings of the ecosystem there.

Larry Stark's sliver of imaginary Los Angeles, where it's forever 1937, is a Depression-bitten place of scrap yards and tumbledown wooden shacks, weedy yards and soot-smudged tenements. Hobos still roam with their knapsacks, and the great steam locomotives -- the kind that left him gasping as a kid -- still dominate the rails. "It's sort of like my little empire," said Stark, 63, who has spent the last six years building the 12-by-17-foot model railroad in the guest house behind his Burbank home.
