County water officials voted unanimously to spend $159 million to build a water treatment plant in San Marcos that will be the largest of its kind in the world. The plant is expected to start pumping 100 million gallons of drinking water a day for county residents by April 2008. Construction is to begin next year. Water officials say county residents face drinking water shortages if the plant is not built, because existing treatment plants are already struggling to meet peak demands.

San Marcos is known as a good place to eat or to buy a sofa, thanks to James R. Eubank, who saw the city's potential as a retail hub. He bought land on San Marcos Boulevard in the 1970s, when the north San Diego area had little but dusty chicken ranches, and opened two adjacent restaurants. This paved the way for a booming restaurant row and other businesses.

There's something of an architectural--not to mention functional--contrast in the two buildings that sit side by side on the San Marcos hillside. In one--a quintessential California multipurpose auditorium with a stage at one end, a kitchen at the other and 800 chairs and folding tables in between--bingo players gather weekly to try their luck.

Each flower blooms for but a day, hence the common name daylily, and the scientific name Hemerocallis , which in the Greek means something like "beauty for a day." But each spike can hold as many as a dozen blossoms that open one after the other, and a healthy clump may produce as many as two dozen spikes. So though the individual flowers last but a day, daylilies seem to be in flower all summer long.

Bugs Bunny isn't the only one who believes carrots are good for you. The latest word comes from a host of scientists and health professionals who have expounded at length on the root's nutritional benefits. An average carrot contains only 40 calories, has no cholesterol, yet offers 330% of the daily USDA requirement for Vitamin A. Beta carotene, the plant pigment that gives a carrot its orange color, has even been linked to cancer prevention.

Here they come, up and over the fence, across the sidewalk and out from under old boards, pots and garden debris. As the weather warms and nights become dewy, snails and slugs go on the prowl, looking for tender young seedlings, even crawling up into citrus to munch on flowers, leaving silvery tell-tale trails. The common garden snail can patiently travel up to 100 feet a night in search of food.
