Ban on filling swimming pools hits communities in parched California

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 08/22/2014 - 07:24
By Aaron Mendelson SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - The California dream of owning a house with a sparkling swimming pool is drying up for would-be swimmers in communities across the state as some local water districts have banned homeowners from filling empty pools in drought-stricken areas.     The restrictions come as California struggles through its third year of a catastrophic drought that has threatened a half-million acres of farmland, dried up reservoirs and shrunk the mountain snowpack that provides drinking water for millions of people.     “What we’re trying to prohibit is someone who makes a decision to empty their pool and then refill it," said Jonathan Volzke, spokesman for the Santa Margarita Water District, which implemented a ban on filling pools this month in several suburbs south of Los Angeles.

California attorney general appeals ruling on death penalty system

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 08/22/2014 - 07:20
(Reuters) - California's attorney general said on Thursday she is appealing a federal district court decision last month that found the state's death penalty system unconstitutional on the grounds it took so long it amounted to cruel and unusual punishment. Central District of California ruled in the case of Ernest Dewayne Jones, who was condemned to death in 1995, that to take "nearly a generation" to decide on Jones' appeals violated his rights. Attorney General Kamala Harris said in a statement the decision threatened safeguards for the condemned, which include careful scrutiny during an often lengthy appeal process. "This flawed ruling requires appellate review." Legal experts said last month that Carney's July 16 ruling was limited in scope to the Jones case, and that it was unlikely to have an immediate impact on other cases because California has not executed anyone in years.
